"Take a look at this comparison as we pit Dirt 3 and Gran Turismo 5 under gravel and snow tracks. Also pay close attention to the lighting and shadow effects. ***Please note these are gameplay images."
wow, DiRT 3's rally tracks destroy GT5's in the visual department. Now, I wonder about the controls...
I wonder which platform Dirt 3 is being shown on...PS3, PC, 360?
doesnt matter still wont compare to gt5 i hope youve played the game in order to verify your claims
@waterboy - I hope not. The rally in GT5 is awful, from the invisible walls to the crappy feel of the cars. Feels tacked on.
I dont even care dirt 3 is a day 1 for me I still love dirt 2 @delbert grady the invisible walls are only on tracks with huge grass fields or dirt fields etc. whereas GT5 puts up an invisible wall dirt puts the car back on the track so its not like you can drive all over the place on dirt and its the opposite on gt
they haven't anything better to do? comparing multiplats vs. PS3 exclusives is just unfair Dirt 3 - rally GT5 - all classes Dirt 3 - about 30 cars (?) GT5 - 1000 cars ...the power of Blu-ray
GT5 or real life? http://www.granturismocup.c... http://h-7.abload.de/img/no... >:D
Dirt franchise and GT franchise cater to two different types of driving. They both belong in my gaming collection. If I were to stick to just one racing franchise this entire generation, I'd certainly feel like I wasted good $$ on a driving wheel when I could have used it with so many different games. It's one thing to compare NFS2 vs GT5. But Dirt vs GT5? Come on they both have a place for the racing enthusiast.
I'm certainly not saying Dirt 3 looks bad, but it's not quite as realistic looking as GT5. It has a lot of bloom and contrast, and you can tell its a video game. Whereas with GT5, you can see a photo of the game and easily mistake it for real life if you look at specific areas. I personally never liked Dirt, but I always admired the graphics. I'm sure fans will be happy with this one.
If you edit out the environment you mean? Because those pictures show DiRT 3 is light years ahead in the environment detail. But I suspect they took screenshots from the PC version.
Thanks to GAMING BOLT I can reasured how incredible good GT5 really look and just how unfair reviewers were with it. I love Dirt 2 and 3 is day one for me . . . but GT5 is on a league of its own.
Come to PAPA! http://h-7.abload.de/img/no... http://i582.photobucket.com... http://i.imgur.com/QYeuS.jp... http://farm6.static.flickr.... http://www.granturismocup.c...
wow i thought that mercedes was real until I saw the gran turismo on his helmet
The cars in granturismo destroy every game but the track you race on and the surrounding area do not look that great. Dirt 3 has better track graphics and surrounding area but GT5's cars still look more real.
cars look good. backgrounds however....ugly. The mercedes looks amazing. But the guardrail made with about 1 polygon looks horrible. Now only if all the cars in the game looked like that. i hate racing my premium cars against ps1 looking standard cars with mirrors that are a just a triangle.
i wouldnt say ugly just not over exaggerated to look pretty lol it looks real to me the standard cars dont look bad they just look horrible next to premiums http://farm6.static.flickr.... http://i328.photobucket.com... http://i328.photobucket.com... then there are some that are butt ugly but .. the car itself is usually butt ugly
I just looked at the comparison's and you should definitely check out the links I posted. The comparison shots of Dirt3 and GT5 are horrendous and biased as hell. "Well Dirt 3 looks good but for anybody who has gt5 can see that some of the screen grabs for gt5 are in the driest spots on the tracks because some sections on the k trail track had me at awe http://www.youtube.com/watc... and same for that snow track"
LOL here we go again!.. For some one (me) who plays Hi Fidelity(HD resolution)games on PC at full settings. This comparison with a stupendous game that nearly pushes NATIVE 1080p (GT5) against a game that does possibly 720p at best is a ridiculous comparison!! If the programmers had the skills to push near native 1080p on Dirt, lets see how happy the frame rate would run or all the effects they are aloud. As for now the rough up close detail wouldn't fare at all against GT5 on a 120hz 1080p LCD!!! No use in all these effects when the overall picture is blurry and rough in action. Ill take 1080p any time!! Because; There ,I repeat there is a massive difference from 1080p to 720p on any LCD by the top makers ,Sony Samsung LG or what not... It not only is awe inspiring to witness native 1080p, but to experience a game like GT5 or Wipeout HD on one at 42" alone is a game winner. So stop comparing a weak engine that cant to one that does!!welcome to GT5!HD 1280x1080 upscaled to full 1920x1080) with x2 AA !!! This is where SLI rigged PC's can compare.. Not a game like Dirt on 360 or PS3 Give it up
Man, Dirt 3 is looking good!
The first image GT5 looks better... and the second DIRT3 looks better. The fact the lighting and shadow effects aren't the same in the comparision.
You think the WHOLE image looks better? Really?
Well Dirt 3 looks good but for anybody who has gt5 can see that some of the screen grabs for gt5 are in the driest spots on the tracks because some sections on the k trail track had me at awe http://www.youtube.com/watc... and same for that snow track
I would give it to Gt5 but umm, the trees really do stick out, that image is great besides the trees. That has to be the worst thing about Gt5, the graphics are inconsistant. Either they are unbelievably amazing, or ... ihh
without the trees GT5 looks better lol
Put GT5's cars into Dirt 3's tracks and I'd be a happy man.
Hey... That would actually be awesome, but I was talking about their rally cars:)
GT5 cars(premium)better- Dirt 3 tracks much better-
http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... That GT5 picture, take the people away and I'd have to take a second look to make sure it was actually a game.
I don't know, the snow texture is pretty flat looking and those trees, especially the one on the left that is close, you can clearly see it is just 2 flat tree pics that are intersected. Cars are great looking in GT5, but the environment is very lacking.
And get rid of the trees.... and the weird tape fence.
yeah, the acr looks real, but the cardboard cut out people and those trees.......not so much
...since when do cars have square tires? lol, at least it looks like it has from that angle.
Double post, well there's always a first for everything!
In the pics Dirt3 looks better from a gaming point of view, but GT5 looks more realistic, mostly due to the lighting.
GT5 all the way!! Look behind and around the back of the cars on each pic of the Dirt 3. Do you guys not see the FUZZY and unfocused road and environment? I bet you that road behind the car will "wave" while you're playing the game too. GT5 is solid, smooth and looks better. Couldn't they have picked a better screen grab of GT5's snowy conditions? I sure could have. Dirt 3 looks like a game (with too much fuzz/blur effect). GT5 makes you take a 2nd and 3rd look 'cause you're not sure if it's not real sometimes.
I like how a lot of the dirt 3 screen shots are blurred
Dirt 3 looks good but doesn't look real like GT5. The part showing the dirt getting kick up looks sad on Dirt 3. Hopefully they will fix that, because it wouldn't be Dirt 3 if you can't see alot of dirt getting kick up.
gt5 is not all about rally , they don't focus on one mode , they try to make the game realistic by puting alots of options like in real , they put nascar-karting-rally-different type of weathers - Aspec and Bspec ...etc , but dirt is not , they only make dirt place and now snow, that's it , if PD focus on one mode it would look just like in real , but gt5 cars and some tracks still looks better then any racing or sim games , you don't believe me ? .. these from my brother , he took them from the gameplay not from photo mode , only the last one ... just look what PD can do but they have limits , ps3 can't handle gt5 so they are making gt6 for the ps4 ... https://us.gran-turismo.com...
I like the Dirt3 ones mostly, first one especially. But the for the snow ones, I do like GT's misty trees thing - just seems colder and more natural. Anyway, I know which one sounds the best! DiRT3. Both good games.
Not a massive rally fan, I've played dirt1/2. Good games though. Still got GT5 and loving it, also there's so much to the game. Not just rally, that's the point. Dirt3 is RALLY!!!!!!!!!! Console i'd expect 30fps. GT5 is 60fps. GT5 Tracks would look alot better if they'd just gone with 30fps, but i prefer the 60fps feel.
for sho for sho http://h-7.abload.de/img/no... http://i582.photobucket.com... http://i.imgur.com/QYeuS.jp... http://farm6.static.flickr.... http://www.granturismocup.c...
Gotta give it to Dirt. Been playing GT5 almost nonestop. but I can't help but notice how dull the tracks are. The only ones that seem to have any good feeling are the city tracks in GT.
this is not good track for GT5. look at eiger or london tracks. looks 10X better
therein lies the problem with gt5. Why does the game only look good with 20% of the cars at only certain tracks. A game should be a uniform experience. i can't remember going anywhere in GOW3 and saying "wow, the dev's really half a$$ed it here" Whereas with GT%. any standard car at a standard track like laguna and you would think its a ps2 game. unacceptable.
Dirt 3 looks more fun...
All the polygons in GT5 went into the cars, that's why they look good but its surroundings look like crap (and I'm not talking about the London or madrid tracks.) While everything in Dirt3 looks even out, so everything has a bit more of detail.
The cars in GT5 look more photo-realistic but the blur in Dirt makes the track look better but unless you see it running it's hard to tell. GT5 is 60FPS and quasi-1080p so I'm guessing it will look smoother and crisper in motion.
I like GT5 but I wish it had the nice looking environments from Dirt 3. It would really add to the immersion.
Huh? I remember GT5 received to many negative feedbacks but then again, It sold more than 6 million unit worldwide. I guess to be able to avoid this negativity again from xbots and haters, SONY and polyphony Digital should polish further the next GT6 for PS3 or PS4. But I guess if it happens, the detractor and xbot will still give it a Negativity because it is PS exclusive and the best racing on that platform.
dirt3 graphics better than gt5.
So were comparing a fully fledged rally game with a side mode rally game in GT5. Jesus christ, where is my dirt3 vs gt 5 comparison with a nissan skyline bombing round the laguna seca on dirt3? oh thats right it doesnt exist what a pathetic comparison
