New 9 minutes in-game video of Forza 2 with comentaries of a couple of the producers of Forza Motorsport 2.
that if that is how the game is going to look , then i'm very very dissapointed even though i am a xbox fan (check my previous posts if you don't believe me). As far as gameplay forza is superior to gran turismo but these graphics just don't look right, they are too stylized ( the cars look highly detailed but like if they are made out of cardboard, I dont know how to explain it but it just doesnt look right), heck even sega GT on xbox 1 looked better than this. What gives Microsoft? This is complete BS!
You know what i just back traced that video to game trailers and it's interesting that it is in the user videos section, i hope this is just a hoax video made by a sony fanboy using forza 1 footage
Stop getting so uptight the game is going into the polishing period right now and has 5 weeks to look good as hell. The game will look finished when its finished not any earlier.
They get the physics right first and then work on the graphics, it's not polished. Stop judging games on the alpha version. The original Forza, the alpha looked worlds apart from the finished version. It's like halo alpha, it's not how the game looks.
The cars look like plastic
Having played the latest build, I found the game to look gorgeous. But since I'm just a random person on a message board, why don't you check out 1up's coverage? They loved it, it has some incredible features (support for 8 hdtv's as a surround view, ability to sell cars and paint jobs online, force feedback wheel with rumble, INCREDIBLE realism). Apparently, the last 5 weeks will be spent on graphics.
"heck even sega GT on xbox 1 looked better than this. "
The hyperbole on this site is ridiculous. This comment made me curious, so I decided to look back through your posts and, who would have thought, you have quite the secret bias going on.
GUESS WHAT? Forza AND GT can both be great games.
Urban hehe Somehow you getting that many bubbles loses all crediblity to me and I dont really listen to what you say :) Forza and GT can never both be great games .. You wanna know why because Fanboys will never let them both be great games. I never really played GT only when I went to my friends house. I like Sega GT and thought it was pretty cool.. I get kinda bored with racing games but with Forza you have so much to do I cant wait for this game....
The cars will never look as real as GT's, do you know how many people work at Polyphony and how talented that group of developers is, mix that up with the funds from previous succesful GT's. Anyone who is expecting this to look really good is going to be sorely dissapointed because Polyphonic are a very special Sony inhouse team. So yeah this game looks meh at best...
I will be impress considering Highend PCs don't do 8 hdtvs and generally to output different screens PCs generally offer more than one dvi/hdmi out - xbox 360 only has the one component cable. Be nice to see how that is achieved on xbox 360 especially with only one component out.
They were using one xbox 360 per tv.
Back for Forza1- the demo absolutely, horrendously sucked yet the game came out fine. That's why I'm fine with this right now. This team brought things together at the last moment last time, and if they can do it again, I'm fine with that.
And yes, this IS like Bungie and Halo- most of Halo came together in 3 months, most of Halo 2 in maybe 6 months, and most of Halo 3 will probably come through in the last bit too. That's just how they do it.
for 8 hdtv's you would need 8 xbox 360's as well(system link). i don't see anyone going as far as 8, maybe 3 at most. even then, because of the expense, i would guess only a few rich/hardcore fans would try setting up 3 hdtv/360's for a single racing game.
anywhos, can't wait for this game to come out. the graphics aren't as good as GT, but from how dedicated they were with the physics/AI/online, it would more than make up for it IMO. gameplay > graphics.
i CAN NOT WAIT for this game
if wifey didn't like video games before, wait until forza 2 ships out! she never experienced the full onset of my GT series (ps/ps2)/GTR series (PC) lol
i've been a GT fan since the beginning, enjoying the minute changes into the next version. i never liked the fact it didn't have online play, kept allowing you to bump and run all around the track without penalties (and no 5secs to drive 30mph wasn't enough), lack of crash physics, and had some extra forgiving corner techniques to win the competition. when forza came out, it just felt years ahead... i'm looking forward to forza 2 this year and gt5 next year... or should i say 2-3 yrs from now ;). even if this game doesn't look better than gt5, it doesn't matter. graphics aren't what make a game great, especially a racing sim.
Forza has always had this low quality stench of the 'Gran Turismo rip-off'. I they constantly wanna get 1 up on polyphony but Gran Turismo will ALWAYS be the real driving simulator.
Watch the video, the bit where they talk about damage. He says, "Oh yeah, the bumper can fall off, and it stays on the track...it stays there for the whole race....This game HAS damage though y'know?". Great, those damage physics are really great. I've never seen that before. A bumper which stays there for the whole race. Its not exactly ground-breaking physics for a title which is supposed to be the flagship racer for the 360. It's crap. It's the excuse of, 'well WE have damage', even though its really crap
And the bit in the video where he says to the reporter, 'This game is definately a simulator', as if he had to verify it in case nobody realised.
Gran Turismo, the original real driving simulator has quality written ALL over it. The detail and realism in the cars, the amount of cars, the modifications to be made to the cars, the range of cars. Forza stinks of the cheap xbox 360 attempt of this particular genre. Oh yeah and Forza 2's graphics look as good as the business end of my cat
U need help...
this will be a good game overall !!!
if you think this is a cheap rip-off and if u even didnt like forza, dont buy it... why are u soo mad???
u should change ur name to the
as an avid racing fan and GT fan, you clearly know nothing when it comes to racers... BEST racing sim goes to the GTR series for PC hands down. for console i'll give it to GT simply for it's following but forza series is NOT crap and i feel the 2nd installment will actually pave the way for polyphony to mimmick as best as possible. it actually is better than GT on so many levels. GT2 was the only worthy upgrade from GT1. GT3 felt like a patch upgrade, as did GT4. every time i looked for crash physics, online play, making the person actually take turns as opposed to crashing against cars or the wall made me realize... what took so damn long to release this GT game?! stack of cars? oh you mean the 15 'different' skylines ?! modifications?! yeah, cuz i know what products are going in from my 'racing intake & exhaust' upgrade from 'semi racing'. yeah, there's variety there for you... GT's great, don't get me wrong, i hope sony/polyphony does something different this time around.
take your fanboyism elsewhere man, your brand loyalty makes you look like an ass
I just wonder why you are spending time looking at your cats a$$! Are you saying its more interesting than your PS3??
i was refering to my cats head, he's an accountant by night
I agree with your comments about the 'physics' being a poor excuse for crap graphics, but we don't actually know what the final graphics will be like yet,do we? Now,G.T while no doubt being a goodish simulator, it isn't the last word in physics or AI,never mind the damage model.Remember the rubber-band AI? Well i do, it was totally crap.This is a case of pot and kettle at the moment,so lets wait and see.
that shadowflare guy sure sounds bitter. relax a little
Whoah, thats a hell of a cat you got there, but what happened to his fur? Looks kinda strange with all that pink skin :) Nice cat though.
It's pretty amazing that Forza 1 was able to beat GT in every way it's first try. The greatest car sim every made is almost upon us! Forza 2 will be legendary.
And yes...the 3 screen setup is NIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE!!!
Are we forgetting that the focus on the gameplay and add the graphics later. Boy, we sure are the shallow generation.
Everything on here is compare and contrast. It's all about graphics and pixels. People criticize and won't play games because the other console has a 1000 more pixels.=-), It's getting sad.
I never did play the GT series on the PS, well My cous killed that game. I could never get into those types os sims. Maybe I'll try a demo of this if they come out with one. I rather Twisted Metal/Road Rash/Extreme G type racers.
Like why are some many "gammers" on this site so f@#king uptight about graphics and act like the don't give a rats ass about the gameplay and controls,etc like WTF..these people really have the audacity to call them selves "gammers" but don't care about the actual gameplay..Like stop accepting the title of "gammer" when you are just a bunch of "watchers"
