IGN climbed behind the wheel of the latest build of MotorStorm to give the mud-caked racer a thorough going over and (off)road-test its garage of turbo-charged gas-guzzlers to the limit.
The same track i been seeing for the last 2 years.
i know you 360 boys like to point out the current flaws, but before you do, keep in mind that the game is still not complete yet. the game is in it's polish/balance stage right now and those speed issues and other bugs should be fixed by the time the game is released.
The one valid complaint: This game is sslllloooowwww.... it needs a boost on the order of 2x-4x as fast to get up to interesting speeds. This does concern me greatly... The game seems to have a very stable framerate, a very stable build, and very solid action. But under the hood, it's moving at about a fourth of the speed it should be going. Why, exactly, would a dev make a game at a slower pace, and then suddenly ratched up the game's base speed in the last month or so of development? Would EVERYTHING turn out wrong in the end? The animations and gravity are set perfectly right now... speed up the game, and everyone would look like they were going in fast-motion on normal-speed autos. And if the game needs to be sped up, does that mean we're going to see cuts in graphics and framerate to accomodate all the action that's going to suddenly be pushing on the processor when this happens? Something smells really, really fishy around this "speed" issue.
Dude, this isn't Burnout, haha. I think it needs to be about 40% faster, max. IGN was basically testing the TGS version in their offices and Evolution Studios is listening to people's complaints. They're making the final version of the game faster than what we saw at TGS so everything should be fine by then.
This looks really good. Too bad I hate off-road racers but this game looks very realistic.
So Sony has 1 catagory in the winnign league and it's the racing genre something Ms always fails at!
Forza 2 will sell more copies than this game.
I wonder if Forza 2 will have the same fantastic damage physics that motorstorm has. Um, ...mmm no don't think so. Forza: The Racing Simulator that HAS damage! Where you can drive 150mph into a concrete wall, and the front bumper may snap off! Motorstorm sounds like its put so much detail into the vehicle designs. Good stuff
You really shouldn't make blanket statements about games (Forza 2 in this instance) that haven't been released yet.
"I wonder if Forza 2 will have the same fantastic damage physics that motorstorm has. Um, ...mmm no don't think so." I Will not respond to this claim at all but i'm letting you know im watching your every move. "know you 360 boys like to point out the current flaws, but before you do, keep in mind that the game is still not complete yet. the game is in it's polish/balance stage right now " This game Should be Finished launch is only a Month away And like i Said they had 2 years with this game.
you're watching my every move are you now? Did i offend you somewhat with my comment? lol geez But you know, if Forza 2 ever has better damage physics then Motorstorm, then you send me the pictures in postcard format but until then you know i'm right
