Way back in December 2006 Alex Ward, director of design for Burnout Paradise, said "If you don't believe the crash is real, then it's not going to frighten you."
Nice video, awesome crashes but still, miles away from total realism.
the only problem is that those crashes are pre-defined (scripted), but a lot of those crashes are looking pretty similar in animations. It still looks like a game because of the textures (looks pretty "game-ish, or cartoonish") If they implement these crash models in Gran Turismo 5 I think it's damn close to reality!
I'm actually very amused when my car crashes in the Burnout demo. So I guess they are not real enough ;P
I love the Demo and will buy this game day one. BEST BURNOUT TO DAY.
I really am having a blast with this game, and can't wait till the full game is released.
Agreed. It's insanely fun and it's what Burnout means :)
They looked pretty good.
the wheels dont come off as easy in the real life crashes, but apart from that looks pretty good
I did not realize how many N4G members worked at crash facilities to give such educated input.
I rather think most of 'em are really bad drivers :)
