Screens look nice, but then the last game didn't look awful... it was just a bit "meh"

there is always that one car that is so common around online races.

and it turned out rather mediocre.

They're hyping this one as well.

Running at just 1/3rd the total resolution of GT5 (GT5: 83M/sec, Shift2: 27.6M/sec), you'd expect at least comparable lighting, shadows, and fill-rate intensive effects like rain, snow, and smoke.

Based on the tiny bit of gameplay in the Shift 2 trailer (final scene), it looks like those aspects of the visuals will continue to be mediocre but the game will sport higher quality motion blur and depth of field effects.

You're criticizing a racing game which hasnt even come out yet becuase it doesnt look as good as GT5?


JackBNimble2679d ago

It call the history of hype... they do it all the time.

radphil2679d ago (Edited 2679d ago )


They already have a small track record for overhyping Shift 1. What's to say they won't do it again?

Plus the whole purpose of screenshots was that they can show off the game. GT5 is already in a playable state. They released these shots to try and take some thunder away from it, so it's legit for people to compare it to the game, considering that a person from the team already made a comment against BOTH Forza and GT.

You may cry out fanboys on your end, but I just see a silly fight AGAIN coming up from the devs.

Depending on who they have set up, it could be great, it could be another average. Bottom line though is that they started a slight instigation, so it's fine for people to compare.

Shift is a highly underated game. Must be played with all assists turned off and manual gears or it feels a bit too arcadey. Looks amazing with 3D Vision too. Fist driving game I was able to use cockpit view effectivly and actually see the track up ahead properly.

DigitalAnalog2680d ago

That makes GT5 look bland.

I see........................... ........

*looks at pile of worms for DINNER advertisement on the right for chartity.

-End statement

360nPS3rTheSAME2680d ago

I'll have plenty of fun. It's destruction derby to you cause you don't know what you're doing. "LOLwut?"....smh that would have been so awkward in person

This guy...... Pfft, lol.

You need to have held a driving license to appreciate Gran turismo. This guy drives playmobile.

Edit: Not to say that I won't be buying shift. I love my racers

Terarmzar2680d ago

I bought shift and i hated the game
In my opinion the game failed to try being a simulator type of race game. The handling of every car felt horrible to me.
So im gonna stick to GT5 and the only other car game i plan on getting is Test Drive Unlimited 2.

zootang2680d ago (Edited 2680d ago )

wrong place

Lawliet2680d ago (Edited 2680d ago )

Uhm.. Why not just get both game? Unless you don't have a PS3 well then you only have one option of course. The release date for shift2 is like next year? Don't tell me you can't even earn yourself 40bucks by year end.. What is your occupation grass eater?

Not buying GT5? Your lose man..

Rage_S902680d ago

30 fps is not good enough for a racing simulator imo

pretty excited about this game

tigertron2680d ago

Since I'm a casual racing gamer, I loved Shift and I particularly enjoyed the modding. However, I'm satisfied with what racing games I have right now so I don't know if I'll pick this one up.

Kemicalbeliefs2680d ago

Loved Shift and will love this one I'm sure. After I finish the whole of GT5 by August next year, I'll be ready for more games.
