Press Start Australia got the chance to go hands on with Forza 5 Motorsport on the Xbox One at EB Expo.
Yeah Forza 5 looks awesome.
Forza is such a good quality series. If I ever get a XB1, this would be one of the first games I'd get.
Same here. So far its the only game that scream at me to get a Xbo. But i can't justify 500$ + just for this game. So i wait and see.
Hopefully they can get a day one patch for those shadows.
Do I see some butt-hurt Magoo? why are people so defensive I will never know. If we're talking about specs.. Sure the Xbox suck, but so does the PS4 both ain't next-gen and are pretty much going to be out-dated already. If you want GRAPHICS - PC is the way to go. It must suck though knowing you're going for the crappy console.
When I played it hands on the cars looked really good, but the tracks were severely lacking In Textures. The tracks looked horrible, however it wasn't the final build so I'm sure it will look fine when it's released. Although my biggest disappointment in the next gen consoles are the lack of sufficient anti aliasing. It really takes away from the visuals.
real life laguna seca is one of the dullest track visually, google it. i think turn 10 did a great job replicating laguna seca.
You and I must have played different games then. Forza 5 Laguna Seca looked great very similar to the project cars version I saw. The track itself is a bit boring, not the games fault.
yes, i played all kinds of racing games and i enjoyed every one of them, played GT, forza ,burnout, nfs, grid etc. Except shift series, the control is kinda hard even in easiest difficulty.
The Real Arcade Simulator.. F - First O - Official R - Racing Z - Zig Zag A - Arcade
The best pre baked lighting. The best fake shadows. The best floaty driving physics. The best company employees praising themselves. The best bumper car physics. The best swapping out of car models to fake damage. The best design a driving game too work with a controller and not a wheel "simulation" racing game. All of these are the best qualities of the Real Arcade Simulator. ;-) You can disagree all you like, however everything I mentioned are based in facts. All of them are, or have been a part of this series. With F5, it seems that all of them still are a staple of this series. The floaty driving feel is the only one that is purely an opinion, so my bad for that. @gameonbro, do tell... where is this butthurt you speak of? I am poking fun at this series for its shortcomings, that is all I am doing. @4logpc, I don't consider myself a fanboy. Maybe to others I am, and that's ok.
the best butthurt?
You fanboys are relentless.
King troll has arrived! Reported for trolling
don't tell them facts. most people who are on here are defensive and don't keep up to date with news and facts. even if you tell them they'll label you as fanboy regardless if it's true. people are ill informed and a lot of them dink a lot of Microsoft kool aid. Edit: its like watching ostriches stick their heads in the sand and later coming back telling you it ain't true.
Why do you feel the need to do that? Have you played F5 yet? It's very good even from just the demo I played. The amount of agrees you got just sums this site up. smh....
lmao.....you shamless troll.you got no pride or dignity.... it seems you jobless too why dont you go play beyond or something.
i enjoy in every forum how ppl of 15/16 years old talk about simulation of driving like pros....take ur fuckin drive license...buy a car with more than 400cv get a degree in physics or just shut the fuckin up a nd play that "GAME" coz yea is a game what wrong with prebacked lightin? this hurt what?! having the sun (with all the shadow ) moving x500 (i would say x6000 times) times faster than in the reality in a driving game dont give u anything of more realitist if not making everything more fake
Those sounds like facts.... seems legit
Forza is the one game people don't accept reviews on. The last of Us... look at review scores... Uncharted... look at review scores. God of War.. same. But for some reason, when Forza is brought up as the Champion this gen for sim racers on console.... all of a sudden nobody wants to look at the Forza reviews. They turn their heads on GT5 reviews. They scream out!! B-b-b-b-b-but look at the sales! Yet games like COD and Madden review well.. maybe COD doesn't rate as low as GT5 did... but... well, I'm sure you guys see what I'm saying. Shall be interesting when GT6 comes out to see if review scores matter for GT again.
You should just enjoy the game yourself rather than relying on reviews of games. Reviews are just others opinions and won't be your own.
Not as much as gt séries where wallriding is the national sport and collisions are all the same, go to nogrip forums or wmd portal and look for gt comments and how shitty the séries is. At least forza get more respect from pc simracing community than gt. Ask why
"respect from pc simracing community" that made me laugh ahahaha who again? LOL come back when Forza gets "respect" from actual people who drive actual cars, for an actual living.
I have expected a bigger graphical evolution. Anyways, cars are already looking nice.
Launch titles are rarely huge jumps in graphics. 2nd/3rd waves are the big leaps.
True, 2nd or 3rd wave will be the big NextGen jump. However, I was expecting something different after all Forza trailers.
this reminds me..gotta get to best buy this weekend and pre-order driveclub.
I would recommend playing a demo first. Friendly advice. I played it at EGX along with NFS.
Yes, because we all needed to hear that in a Forza article...
Don't worry it won't surpass upcoming GT6. One good point I did like is the XBox ONE triggers feels a lot comfortable when playing Forza5.
yeah the triggers and feedback are amazing, it made me play much better knowing what was going on with my tires on the road.
There is a lot of GT fanboys here, let me balance the weight. GT G- giant T-turd the real shitty simulator
Im not a fan of GT. And i think Forza 5 looks decent but... It game has some serious issues. - The lighting is way off its very unrealistic. - Shadows of the car constantly stays under the car, that never changes or adjusts to any light this mean its baked shadows and they look unnatural. - Driving physic are not good, car seems sliding on ice instead of griping especially a car like McLaren P1 - Terrible collision physics. cars bump to each other like bumper cars. - Floaty physics Im saying this because Turd 10 were always bragging how FM5 is the best of the best. then u have all the issues i posted. If you remove your fanboy glasses and look at the gameplay videos again, im sure you will realize that. I hope those gameplay videos are early built and maybe they will fix all these issues.
Well ive heard from numerous peeople that the lighting looks amazing. Close to life like. So i dont know who to believe. You or the other people that have had hands on with the game.
Very mature comment......./s Keep em coming...
To be honest, both franchises GT and Forza are great and system sellers. But in all fairness whether your a fanboy or not if it weren't for GT there would be no Forza or it wouldn't be as great as it is today! Microsoft needed a racing sim and got it from turn 10. Sega tried with Sega GT and well you know the rest.
Lol, the fanboys are surely up in arms. I guess their days are not complete until they troll the other console and its games. I can't fathom why they just don't stick to their preferred console's news section.
What is with the pre baked lighting criticism? If it looks this good what's the problem. It looks better than any other racing game out there at the moment. I just don't get it...
you know why? because they based their criticism on fanboyism and brand loyalty. i have read through a lot of forza news, you'll see pre baked lighting , unrealistic lighting and floaty physics comments from sony/gt fanboys. majority of game journalists had hands on experience said otherwise. the game is beautiful, lighting is great, physics is better and improved.
see we got 2 disagree each from same people.
Forza 5 gets all those criticisms because Forza fans always tout the 1080p and 60FPS performance of the game without considering how it was achieved. Forza made a lot of next-gen technological sacrifices in order to keep the GPU and CPU load low and achieve their resolution and frame-rate goals. IF they had employed all of the often pointed out graphical technologies (like dynamic lighting, global illumination, real-time damage & physics etc.), they would never have been able to make the game run at 1080p and 60FPS. The secret to keeping fanboy attacks away is just don't brag and boast too soon when you get the chance and no one will rub it in your face later when you turn out to be wrong. Xbone fans have been continuously giving Sony fans chances to humiliate them by boasting the superiority of Xbone exclusives too soon (for example: Ryse 1080p, 60FPS and 150,000 polygonal model incident).
Stunning will be pre ordering bf4 pc and paying some more off F5 in the coming days been with the series since day one.
Im not SonyGT fan, i never owned a PS3. criticism this doesn't mean that person is atomically a Sony fanboy. Anyway here is a good example. http://s8.postimg.org/73s1s... This is why FM5 runs at 1080 60 fps. If they ad Dynamic lightning and Global illumination, the performance will drastically lower from 60 fps to 25-30 fps and it will be unstable cause from the look of it X1 GPU can not handle that much lighting calculations for a good frame performance.
If Polyphony can manage GT6 on PS3 then why to fuck can Turd 10 not make a proper next gen title for the XBone? I would not be criticising F5 except that Greenwall or whatever his name is repeatedly states F5 as the best, which it clearly is not.
It's the best...around. Nothing's gonna ever keep it down.
Looks really good to be honest. Shame its XB1 exclusive as I will never get to play it, unless they decide to start pricing the console realistically that is.
Who plays forza, doesnt go back to inferior stuff. Now dont come shit me with prebaked stuff, cuz all we want is race our friends
This is suppose to be about Forza 5 not Xbox one or PS4.. really? flame-wars, people grow up.
