The new rally racing game in the Colin McRae series, Dirt, has some amazing car damage effects. This is all real time and normal mapped, so it takes on a pretty realistic effect of how damage would occur.
Definatly beats forza's damage system and its far to real to compare to Motorstorms. Id say for realism they did a great job. Not fun when you cant just crash for fun because it ends the race; going by this video. Looks great not like every console doesnt have plenty of car games anyhow. Forza vs Dirt is more of a comparison. Motorstorm is a lot different then both of those games. You could compare but not really fair in anyway because they both went after different goals.
You just can't accept the fact that Dirt has better visuals and damage models than Motorstorm. Not comparable? Motorstorm has dune buggies and off-road trucks, Dirt has dune buggies and off-road trucks. What more do you need? At least compare the off-road parts. Forza is best pitted against Gran Turismo, even though GT hasn't got any damage models or extensive tuning features.
I agree that you can compare the off-road portions. They are different types of racing though. Motorstorm is more arcade style compared to the rally style in Dirt. That being said, I agree that I think the off-road portions looks better in Dirt than Motorstorm, which is terrific because I think Motorstorm is beautiful. Also agree that the Forza 2 vs Gran Turismo is the proper comparison for that game.
Smash each other with the trucks or cars. This game is going to be great!
This game is going to be very fun! I think the Colin McRae series has always had the best driving physics in terms of rally racing. Still haven't decided if I want this for PS3 or 360
as the ps3 version has been delayed !
really nice!!!! i love to damage cars.
Whats the difference in comparing GT vs Forza and Dirt vs MotorStorm? if i was to go off of your logic. Below: What if i was to say i do not consider GT a Sim but an advanced Arcade racers one the level of PGR. Anyways GT never boasted realalistic Physics or being an offroad visual masterpiece The only GT i'v seen on PS3 is a suped up hollow PS2 game. Dirt vs MotorStorm remains lol...
GT=sim, Forza=sim Dirt=sim, MS=not sim.
and yet GTHD remains to be one of the most visually impressive racing games this gen. Don't think so? Go watch some vids...go read some things said by devs. It looks incredible. DiRT looks superb.
You might want to call GT a sim, but it sure as h£ll doesn't play like one. The cars feel weightless and have the turning radius of a tractor. Even PGR is more sim than GT.
More impressive than Forza's damage model.
Everything has better damage than gt
visual DIRT has the upper hand but then again look how much time it has over motorstorm... for what motorstorm has accomplished in such a short period of time is amazing...5 months the PS3 is out and to have a beautiful game like that just surprised me. fun factor i dont see DIRT coming anywhere near the crazyness that goes on in motorstorm..the crash effect on DIRT seem to be better but the slow motion of the crashes in motorstorm are priceless im sure now that motorstorm 1 has been done and lived up to the hype of the E3 trailer motorstorm 2 will be a million times better in even sense(graphically) and PRAY! that they dont change the game play style
So thats what GT is!. GT seems more on the lines of PGR than a full blown sim with high levels of realism. If DJ can provide some new damage vids of Forza i would be happy. Foza's Damage looks pretty good to me judging by the Forza damage vid that has been on XBL for months and that was just a taste of an unknown Damage setting in a flash demostration etc.
Damage models with real cars is rather difficult in that you have to get premission with individual manufacters....the forza team had to go over with each manufater in the level of detail that the car can break into and its alot of work. With made up cars its upto the developers and this game has done it fantastically and i like how the environment can also be damaged, really looking forward to a demo.
that site is annoying, was it like supersized for everyone else as well? AWESOME video tho
But Dirt still looks better. This game will be awesome. I have played MS and it is not bad. But Dirt is dressed better. We will get to see soon.
we dont all sound like r-tards ! this guy has a problem with the letters a, w, s and k ! he needs to watch more sesame street !
Looks better than the much-overhyped ( Motorstorm -- short life-span playability, smashing slow-mo vid gets a bit too boring/gimmicky... ), saw a clip where the bonnet was smashed-off on one of the cars and you can see the engine moving w/ every rev as is the suspension, cleverly thought-out level of crash simulation and especially the different choice of in-car camera shots. With that much number of trucks, buggies and cult rallye to choose from this is shaping up to be one of those must-have games.
Since I can't have Motorstorm on my 360, I guess I'll have to "settle" for this. Settle, indeed! Looks great, and although it MAY not be as good as Motorstorm (won't know until it releases), at worst it's a close second, at least based on what we've seen so far.
lets just say all the stuff you do in motor storm you wont be doing in dirt
Notice how this was about the game and not the hardware. If this was a PS3 exclusive this is how this video would be. This damage is possible because of the advanced physics calculations only available with the cell processor. We can reshape car models after damage at 2 teraflops a second. Also because of Blu-ray we can store lots of damage data and stream high res textures from the disc. The PS3 is a great investment so spend $600 now because it will last 20 years. Okay just joking. But this is how the PS3 game videos are. They are all sales videos. Who the "f" can't see what the CPU and GPU are doing. EVERY THING ON THE SCREEN IS BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF THE CPU AND GPU.
NOT TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT BUT.... I just bought two of the best games I have ever played. I didnt have any good games for my PS3 so I bought GOW 1 an 2 for the Ps2. an WOW!!! I had never played a GOW game but I'm glad I decided to try it. an if HS is anything like this then I might need to go an pre order it tomorrow!! best game for the PS3 hands down, cant wait to get deeper in the game ( wife's watching movies on my 360 now)
nice one :) Bloody GOW2 isn't out over here. Heavenly Sword will be very different, but better...the fighting system is so much deeper. Same production values though :)
Ohhh yea man i feel ya, I heard so much good stuff about GOW 1 so when GOW 2 came out I went to rent it but it was out so I got number one and I was blown away with how fun it was. It really is one of the funnest games I have ever played. HS is alot like GOW it's the reason most of us are all so excited for it.
but i'm still disappointed with the gameplay... damn! motorstorm spoilt me! q:
"much-overhyped ( Motorstorm -- short life-span playability" it wasnt overhyped...everything that was shown is exactly what we got - the graphics part wasnt as sharpe put came damn close and remeber the title was released with 4months of the lauch...if thats the result the game had with the type of dealine they had 2 lauching the title - i can tell u rite now part 2 will mostly blow this DIRT to the ground....and i could promise u that the gameplay fun factor of DIRT is nowhere near motostorm..i promise u that GOW1 and GOW2 are simply flawless i agree...i just cleared GOW2 and can you say GOW3 PS3! :)
This does show very impressive damage modeling. I just hope the exhilaration factor will be there when a bunch of AI vehicles are included as well. I want to see the vids with multiple opponents!
