GOONL!NE: Some new footage has emerged of Need for Speed Shift.
Looks awesome. The way the hud moves and reacts to bumps in the road etc is really cool. And it looks like they've nailed the sense of speed as well. Shame you couldn't hear the engine sound in the video.
not bad i mean nuttin ill buy but not bad @2: Stop bein a fantoy, of course GT5 is goin to blow it out, but cmon its jus a game, give it a chance
hope they revive the n4speed series soda pop need for speed use to be top notch.
I hope they do too. I loved the first ones (except for NFS 2 which was horrible). I'm pretty sure this will be good, it's being developed by a great team. lol @ disagrees from insecure GT fanboys.
That is not a simulation game, that was an arcade racer dressed in a GT/Fruza/GRID outfit, EA should either fix the whole gameplay or stops promoting this as simulation racer.
grid is also arcade racer
nice video .. definitly an arcade game ..it reminded me of ridge racer. but they have work to do ..i don't like the way the collision with others cars are handled ...
That guy playing is horrible. I am not sure if he is just trying to show what it looks like when you crash, or if he really is that bad of a driver.
But the physics seem to match Grid more than Gran Turismo or Forza.
Looks like a cartoon compared to Gran Turismo Prologue. Can't wait til Gran Turismo 5 comes out and blows all racing games out the water. This E3 is going to be awesome for PS3 owners. Can't Wait!!! Did you see that ICO/ Trico game trailer???? - To die for.
open zone ------> on topic, seems pretty good, i like the way how the whole car moves when you change a gear that is pretty good. Gameplay seems a lot like granturismo, i.e. using other car's brakes lol... Some people do it not everyone lol... Don't see why i should go for this instead of granturismo though
Man you fanboys really latch on to Gran Turismo way too much. The company who did this made the highest rated PC racing sim in the past 5 years. They know what they're doing, and without assists this is supposed to be even more realistic than GTR2. Which would make it the most realistic racer available. These guys have been doing sims for awhile. Just because there isn't a million cars doesn't make the game bad. I mean hell, almost all of the cars in Gran Turismo are street cars. Who really wants to race a street car when you could have one tuned for racing, and not have to grind away for 20+ hours to get anything near racing class.
wow your an hater lol and the ico/trico trailer looked ok but "to die for" lmao fanboys
It may not look as good as Gran Tismo but the games got balls for even attempting.
“We don’t pretend to compete with Gran Turismo for technological achievement as well as what I would call a ‘driving simulator’,” said the developer. “That’s not the fun angle we’re going after.” “We’re going after… what it means to be in a race, in a grid of hard competitors who will battle for position, and who will make the organic nature of the race more about performing at that level and less about the challenge of driving in a straight line.” Despite wanting to offer something different to GT, however, Abney said Shift is paying close attention to Polyphony’s work. “For us we look at games like GT, Forza 2 and GRiD as the high water mark,” he added. http://www.vg247.com/2009/0...
After playing lots of gran turismo this game seems wrong. I am in love with my prologe of gran turismo 5, cant wait for the real deal. But i am glad that need for speed made some great changes to the nfs series.
Looks pretty nice to me. Too bad the video's kind of crappy. Hopefully we can see more at E3. And stop with the Turismo talk guys. When they can offer us a release date, then we can start getting hyped up. In the meantime let's just enjoy the racing games that are out now. There's a pretty good chance GT5 won't even make Christmas.
I saw vids of that game. .and I thought I'd pick it up for sure. .then,the review said 4 hrs of gameplay and in an instant. .it fell of the radar for me. Now. .thats what I want to not happen to this game.I dont want to want it cuz from what I see it rocks. . .then,what they werent showing us. . .kills it for me.Releasing DLC every week for lots and lots of money that would make the game cost $200 dollars in the end is one of those things.
Like I've said before, Grin sucks. Wanted: Weapons of fate also clocks in at 4 hours, with no multiplayer and nothing to do when you've played it through.
I thought they said this was going to be realistic?
to be honest I think I still prefere GRID
I don't think GRID and this are really comparable at all. GRID is a really casual friendly racer with arcadey car handling, while this is a racing simulation.
Grid was and still is the racer to beat for me at least, the gameplay and ai in that game are amazing, grid also has really nice gfx, if oyu havent played grid then you must, GRID is a special game. Shift seems ok but a tad cartoony.
I'm gonna buy this for PSP
Im sorry but Porsches dont handle like that. they are very stiff and and they dont float around corners. N4S sadly is going away from what made the games fun. Exotics on closed circuits being chased by cops. not sims with speed boat physics. I didnt like Grid all that well but it looks funner than this. Maybe in the next few months Ill change my mind on this game. Not to be harsh but the posters above me need to #1 get a life and quit flaming one another for personal taste #2 This does not look anything like a sim. Go drive a Porsche and then tell me that looks remoatly realistic. #3 I agree with dreamhunk, it didnt look like the cars were damaged at all. IMHO Burnout Paradise is the racing game to beat this gen. That game is amazing, I know its not a sim, but fun factor is top notch. Gt5 will surpass it. Well because its GT. If you ever watched the GTTV vids on GT5P, they put the most effort into getting the cars as realistic as the real thing. I respect them for their effort and hope that the game does well. I hope that Shift will surprise me and give good reason for a purchase. Time will tell.
still looks a bit arcady... Its a simulator game for the casual really. It looks fun but I doubt I'll get it.
I know I'll be shelling out $60 for this game! And all these GT fan girls can get a life... Who knows, FM3 might just blow GT5 out of the water. Who wants a racing sim with no damage anyways???
so that you'd know, gt5 WILL have damage, and don't say it ain't true, kazunori yamauchi himself confirmed it, the game will also have dynamic weather effects.
