GT5 pwns real life
beautiful game nuff said
The detail on the cars seems on par (perhaps a little better, haven't looked at them side-by-side) with what PGR4 and Forza2 have been putting out this gen, but I'm most impressed with how the light interacts with the camera and the environment... makes everything seems more natural when in motion.
I can't wait to play the full game after it's polished even further.
Are shocking. The Leather textures/The Plastic screens/The LCD screens/Tachometer/Speedometer detail is so fine, you dont realize how the little things like stitching and subtle textures really tie it all together..
PLUS the lighting inside is just plain real. Like driving around the trees cast shadows on the interior of the car.. its just amazing.
In fact it is so real that when you hit someone 200kmh nothing happeneds......
And what does Ramming into things have to do with the Lighting/Shaders/Detail/Scale of the game?
Take Microsoft Flight for example, you dont BLOW UP when you hit the ground, you bounce off. Or the Sim Ends. Its an option. The point of a simulation is to simulate\emulate the experience. Which GT5 does flawlessly. The fact that I can drive my g35 on a road course, know the feel of the car, the point/speed at to which I break traction, the sound, the optimal shift points, and the weight. To Pick up GT-HD and feel the exact same responses (outside of sound) in the digital doppelganger is impressive.
Couldn't I say the same to you, as in when you hit a wall at 230mph in forza, you bounce off walls and other cars.. instead of exploding in a fiery crash?
GT5 is about the Cars, not about the damage. Although to please some damage mongers, I'm not one of them. Polyphony is working on it for the final release as an update after the game is released.
Gran Turismo is the best selling console driving game franchise in the galaxy. A house built on No damage.
GT5 is about driving and feeling a car. Appreciating the rules of the track, and the rules of passing. If you have ever driven on a road course, you would know this. You dont SLAM into other cars to gain position. If you are doing this, you are doing something wrong, you aren't a skilled driver. Loadup Burnout or Dirt if you want to wreck your car, but when you want to play a game where skill is important. Gran Turismo is that game.
edit: @ joking.
Oh didn't know, GT is my favorite game of all time. Its the only reason I ever bought playstations. I just hate when people compare it to arcade racers.
Calm down dude, i was just joking. I think my sentence ended up being really funny :)
I agree with what you said, but that doesn't mean i wouldn't like to have some kind of damage in GT5....but if i remember correctly there is going to be in full GT5 game.
I am not a GT fan. Never have been but anyone who knocks this graphics wise is just stupid.
back to playing GT5 PROLOUGE!!!!! i cant wait for the full release of this and the real GT5
I agree with ToastMan018.
Its a beautiful game. I have both a 360 and a ps3.
My brother has the 360 in his room and i got the ps3 in my.
But today we took both ouer HD-tv,sand putt them next to eatchother.
He started up forza 2 and i started the Gt5 Pr demo.
And i am NO FAN BOY but i can say this that, in MY EYES the GT5 looks so mutch more polished and nicer then Forza 2 so its sick.
THe light is perfect, the asphalt in looking so real, the gloves on the driver is incredible detailed and the cars,, woo yes the cars.
Gt5 got everything. 2 bad its not online tho , but you cant get everything i guess =(
ah, GT5 now has online lol. The Demo of GT5 prologe probably doesnt have online. so there now go play GT5 online when you get it!!!
Talking about the damage and that gt5 dont have it and that why it sucks! ROFL OMG FFS! is all i have to say 2 that.
First of all.
The ligh in forza 2 is good yes i can agree on that, but in Gt5 its a little bit better.
I mean, the light in forza makes the cars look awesome, same in pgr 3-4
but in Gt5 it takes the Interior to a hole new level.
For an X: take the Duhatsu, and drive the car so the light is over the dashboard, you can see the ripples in the dashboard man. its incredible!
In forza , you cant. In pgr 3-4 you can, but not in THAT detail.
Both forza and gt5 and pgr games got really nice shadows.
But damn man the shadows in gt is sick, like wil4hire says, drive the car under a tree and you see every detail of it in the shadow inside of the car.
PGR 3-4. dont have ANY weight in there cars, and thats why its a Arcade racing game.
Forza 2 does, but not the same as in GT5.
EXAMPLE: First drive the BMW Cupe car, and THEN drive the BLACK MASK car. Damn man , THAT is what WEIGHT is all about in a driving sim.
REFLECTIONS! ( love them )
PGR 3 - 4 is nice yes, but the leave a hole bunch of things.
FORZA 2. Reflections is nice in this game yes, but same here, it leaves a lot of things.
GT5. MAN in the corners you can see the red/white stripes on the ground in the cars body, you can see other cars in the body, you can see trees, glags over the road in the body. THAT IS REFLECTION!!!
YOu dont need 2 have body damage to be realistic driving sim.
And 4 the idiot that said: Ye it is so realistic that when you drive in 2 a wall in 200kmh you youst bounce back.
Well IF forza 2 should be realistic, your car should look like a back of ruble. SO dont say that FOrza 2 is realistic because they have damage.
the damage in other "sims" just isnt real. I'm pretty sure the creator of GT said before that he doesnt want to try anything unless he thinks he can do it perfect. The game right now is perfect, i dont really care about damage. They say its comming, we'll see. But for now this is the best taste of what real race sims are supposed to be. Gawd i cant wait for the real deal next year. DROOL.
First of all: The asphalt in GT5 together with the sun and light.
Its fu*king awesome, i showed my dad that is a skilled driver and he said:
OMG it FUC*ING looks real. AND MY FATHER DONT SAY FU*K BUT NOT HE DID HAHA.
Second of all.
Like WIL4HIRE SAYS : (( BTW MAN INVITE ME ON PSN - SWGOLIATH ))
I hate people that see gt5 as an arcade game.
IT NO FU*KING ARCADE RACER!
Its about driving and feeling a car.
Its about to know every detail of the car and the most important:
WHERE YOU HAVE YOUR CAR ON THE ROAD!!
There is 3 BIG things in GT5 YOU HAVE TO LEARN BEFORE you go online.
OR you will get banned from every server when the games come out, and i can promise you that.
1. GT5 ONLY WILL HAVE SKILLED DRIVER ONLINE. PGR got skilled players 2. so does forza2.
But in GT5 YOU HAVE to learn how do pass an other car in a GOOD WAY.
You can not play bumper cars like in PGR or forza.
KEEP THE DISTANCE ON THE ROAD , DO A NICE TAKEOVER. AND THEN CONTINUE DRIVING.
Not like in PGR.. VVRRROOOMMM first corner comes and its like 10 year olds in disneyland with there bummpercars.
Or in forza . first corner comes and then you will see witch one of the players cant drive the car no more cause the tiers is in the woods.
THE thing i am trying to say is that in GT5: SHOW RESPECT IS THE KEY AND THE OTHERS WILL DO IT TO YOU. IT IS NO ARCADE GAME!
I FOR ONCE WILL KICK/BAN YOUR A** IF YOU BUMP INTO ME ON PURPOSE.
" You can not play bumper cars like in PGR or forza" WTF are you talking about ?? Go play Forza like that and then come back and tell me how it went....
the in car views are freaking sick.. Makes the game way more intense and realistic..
this proves it GT5 looks not amazing car models look ok nit wow and u cant say the game looks better with the inside cam as all racing games do =),look at those environments haha they look like wii type graphics.
framerate stutter and/or skipping frames. stupid replays drive me nuts with 1/2 framerate of actual game. other than the stuttering its looks really good. it better drive as good as its looks
its funny when xbots compare the demo of a demo of gt5 to forza 2 if this demo of a demo even puts a competition to forza 2 then i will feel sorry for forza 2 when gt5 is released in 2008.
what to say about GT5..
IT F*CKIN AMAZING!!!
Though I have 1 complaint: please let the environments get polished. Just a sec a go I pulled over with my car lol, and I noticed that all those trees are goddamn 2d. Hopefully those are placeholders...
Great car models, although they don't look as good as the screenshots when you are ACTUALLY driving.
Enivronments - Good, PGR4's are far superior
Music- Cheesy, No custom soundtrack as well.
Handling- Still like driving on a bar of soap, no improvements at all.
Physics- BUMPER cars allround, boucing off barriers, rubber bounced off cars like crazy, managed to bouce a car into the lead WTF!!! No exactly next gen.
Car Sounds- excellent.
Car models - GT5
Gameplay - Forza 2
Environments - PGR4
Weather - PGR4
Customisations/Modes - Forza 2
the game looks amazing i nearly crapped my pants!
I have to say, it could sound better. I'm not getting the feeling the cars have been recorded 'on-load'. Real shame, I was hoping they would put more effort into audio.
However, it LOOKS fantastic.
IGN are freaking awesome drivers.
