System3 has finally announced a solid release date for the upcoming PS3 exclusive racer, SuperCar Challenge.
This game sounds pretty impressive. The Ferrari Challenge game they released last year was really well-done, but not very well-received because these games are very realistic supercar simulators. It can be extremely difficult because you really feel the speed and the danger in driving these powerful machines when you play System 3's racers. If I recall correctly, the reviewers weren't too pleased with the high difficulty of the previous game, so they'll probably criticize this one for the same thing. Not to mention that these days everybody wants 400+ cars and the critics didn't like the fact that only Ferrari's were available in that game. But anybody really interested in driving the world's fastest production racecars, System 3's games are for you. 1080p rendering, too, this game looks gorgeous.
I think I know what you are talking about here, because the Beta, which I'm sure quite a few N4G users got a code for, was pretty difficult. Still good idea from the devs to release this game before Forza and GT PSP, they DO NOT want that type of competition.
im in the beta, it is actually a pretty fun little game
I like(d) the Ferrari challenge and was wondering when they would support a broader range of cars. Looks like they do with that game. It might not be up there with GT and Forza, but its great to play, and its still a high quality racer, IMO. The wheel somehow doesn't feel right, and needs some tuning. The rain is awesome (with c0ckpit-view), what I missed is a more slippery terrain in case of a wet surface. Seams that's in now. But, true, to win I had to go to easy mode...
I had no idea that this was a PS3 exclusive. The only reason I didn't pick up Ferrari Challenge was because I didn't like the idea of only being able to race one make. Now that it's been broadened to supercars in general, I think it will make a great little sim... certainly something to keep me held over until GT5.
Had the beta, rarely played it but I thought it was good enough to buy. Very crisp graphics and good simulation. I also had no lag.
Your opponents’ artificial intelligence has also been completely rewritten with a brand new Dynamic AI setting allowing the game to change the challenge you receive based on how well or badly your career is going.
It sounds like a good game and all but is it going to be $60? It's got a good number of tracks and cars but in comparison the GT5 why would anyone buy this? I wonder if GT5 will be over $60 now that I think about how much they put into this game and how much was put into previous installments GT is just like the pentacle of racing sims for me. Like if you own the game you don't need ANY other similar game for a LONG time.
Iv'e been in the closed beta since early May, and the game is pretty sweet Great graphics, and the driving is hard as hell
I recently got GRID, going from the SuperCar Challenge beta to Grid was just awkward...
Lol yeah GRID is a completely different type of racer, a lot more arcadey.
... a lot more
I hope this is a good game. well it will be as it is a PS3 exclusive.
Better than Flopza 3
Haha, this is exclusive to the PS3? I never knew, that is really odd, i like to think i'm very much in tune with what is going on in the games industry, but this is the first i've heard of this being exclusive. I have the beta too, its actually pretty good. Graphically, its no where near being a GT5, infact the graphics are a bit below standard but the cars are good fun to drive.
Wait a minute I have the beta also, and I must say this is one of the worst racing games ever. Are you 2 guys that said this game is good $ony fanboys? The demo is terrible.
No, i enjoyed the feel of the driving. Will i buy it? Probably not, i have GT5 and Forza 3 to keep me happy in that area. Why would that make me a sony fanboy? Oh, and how come when i look for a PSN ID "PHILBALNATION", it says it is incorrect?
Uh deathrow look at it very carefully it's PHIBALNATION, not PHILBALNATION. That's exactly what I'm talking about, stop being such a fanboy and settle down and read correctly. You seen someone who didn't agree with you and you can't even see and spell correctly, calm down.
If you don't like simulation this game is not for you!! For anyone wanting a true to life racing experience it's amazing. So true to life So kids without a driving license need not apply, hell if you have never been on a track in real life you will probably struggle with this one. This game is not an Arcade racer its a true to life sim.
LOL, this is no where near a sim are you crazy, this game is terrible. The driving physics are messed up.
Cool, another exclusive.*Shrug* Too many for PS3 tho. The bots could really use this, they need something to brag about.
Wow ! Not to mention it's better than Forza 3 in every single way.
