Here we are on the Gamesomc showfloor, and we'll start with some Forza Motorsport 5, played by Helios from Turn10
Forza 5 is looking like a nice step up for the new generation.
of course it looks good, it's a next gen game. but i have to admit DriveClub blows F5.
Other way round in my opinion.
Sorry mate Maybe DriveClub is "visually" impressive If you are really into car games, you wouldn't compare this with Forza, its nothing like other Sim-racing games such Froza and GT you can easy tell from watching gameplays I feel like its like Test Driver Unlimited or Forza horizon with race tracks instead of having massive open world environment and with some stunning graphics honestly, DriveClub combined the best of both worlds
@abzdine It's a next-gen game using current-gen features and tech, to put out a rushed 360 game turned XB1. The storefront and auction house are gone, still no weather, no night racing, the lighting is pre-baked (you're driving straight into the sun at 2:55 yet the bridge is still casting a HEAVY shadow under it). DriveClub has all of that (a true next-gen racer like Project Cars) Forza 5 looks great graphically, but it's a 360 game bumped up to XB1 and missing features from the previous game.
This might get me slaughtered, but the leap over Forza 4 seems pretty small in context of the game being on considerably more expensive next generation hardware 8 years newer than 360. I mean yes, the resolution has doubled. Which should really be expected. Ignoring the fancy menu and car show off modes that existed in Forza 4 anyway and used extreme detail models you never had actually in game (autovista) it isn't exactly a leap over Forza 4 visually. Its an improvement no doubt, one that couldn't be done without new hardware. But when I think back to this ridiculous leap between say PGR2 on Xbox and PGR3 on 360, that was a huge leap and the fact is, the time gap was far smaller, just 4 years between Xbox launching and PGR3 launching with Xbox 360. The models and the textures and the lighting and the trackside detail and the motion blur went off the charts, not to mention the inclusion of this insanely detailed cockpit view that didn't exist in the older games. Forza 5 looks like it'll be a fantastic racing game but I'm not seeing this incredible improvement over Forza 4 that I expected (and hoped for) on brand new hardware the better part of a decade newer. This is a first party IP after all.
Wow! This game is a straight up COPY of GRAN TURISMO!! From how you choose the color of your car to the camara movements and how the cars are showcased. Damn! A little originality would've been nice.
wow the bonnet reflections in race are so clear. Car sounds meaty as well. In this game I will be the Stig.
Does anyone know what steering wheel option there are for the X1?
Thrust Master and a new Mad catz wheel, either way hope you have 400$+ ready if you are going to buy a wheel.
Impressive, props to the devs.
Looking forward to seeing what they say tonight in the conference most anticipated game for me.
I agree it is for me to Loved all the other forza games. What I want to know though is have the put the head tracking in this game with the new Kinect? As I loved using this option on 4 when online racing.
War of the automobiles : Forza 5 vs DriveClub vs GT6 vs The Crew vs NFS:R I'm looking forward to driveclub the most since i get it for free on plus :P and then maybe NFS if it's a decent title this year (none of that The Run bullshit)
DriveClub and The Crew for me, their initial reveal really impressed me. All these games look great though, some just better or more fun than others. I loved MotorStorm so I've been set on DriveClub since before they announced it having a free PS+ version.
What camera did this guy use? This offscreen quality looks better than some so called HD Trailers I've seen.
Looks so smooth and crisp! I cant wait to build a replica of my M3 in this. then im going to slap a thundercats logo on the bonnet. @MasterH and family guy...you really just came into a forza thread to talk about drive club? This might sound a bit silly...but have you ever considered talking about those games in their own posts? but seeing as you brought it up..yeah..forza smokes driveclub.
So many angry fanboys on both the GT and Forza side lately.
