The cars look good but I think the environment is still lacking some detail- especially the vegetation and the crowd. As much as I love how the cars look, I wouldn't call those visuals "next-gen" as the whole package is not completely polished.

That the game runs at a solid [email protected] fps is still a good accomplishment, though.

Wow, i am not a racing game fan but these cars looks nice.

Drewidian1820d ago (Edited 1820d ago )

Exactly what detail are you looking for? I'm not trying to be combative, I genuinely am interested in what you think is missing.

From what I understand this is a replication of a real track that was laser scanned for realism. So... What would you like to see? Keep in mind that while the game runs at 60 FPS the video itself and the capture device and video playback probably run at 30 FPS.

Braid1820d ago (Edited 1820d ago )


I might be wrong but I believe the trees/vegetation on the hills are still not completely 3D and the crowd is still a cookie-cutter two dimensional copy and paste, which are some of the details I wouldn't want to see on a next-gen console. The cars look gorgeous, and when the cars look that good, visual flaws on the track/map sticks out like a sore thumb, which is a major distraction (well, at least for me).

I don't want to be that guy who brings something irrelevant up to the discussion- but I think Drive Club's shaders (especially the lighting) look better than what we see here as well. As far as we know DC runs at 30 frames per second (for now, and I believe is 720p) so I guess there's a price to every bit of detail.

@ around the 32 second mark, why is there a shadow under the car that is evenly distributed, even if the sun is hitting from the right side?

Idba1820d ago

DC is 1080p and they delayed ut so they can make it 60fps

Hmmm, the cars look fantastic, isn’t that the most important thing? When you blow by trees and spectators at 150+mph, I doubt it matters the amount of detail in a spectator or a tree. When I’m racing online I’m worried about other cars, the next corner, etc. I’m not worrying about how the landscape doesn’t look as great as the car, there spectator is in the same place each lap, or that a tree doesn’t look like a real tree.

The gameplay looks awesome and the cars do to. The track itself looks excellent as well. All the scenery and other crap is meaningless. It’s a racing game so as long as the racing and the cars look great, that’s what matters. Look at “The Crew” those graphics don’t look anywhere near this nice.

Can’t wait for this game.

Yo, chill out dawg.

xHeavYx1820d ago (Edited 1820d ago )

Chill? For asking a question? I think you should save your bubbles for something more relevant, instead of showing every single time that you have nothing important to say (By the way, you probably know already, but you are not funny, stop trying so hard)

malokevi1820d ago

Yo, heavy, chill out dawgy.

JokesOnYou1819d ago

Heavy come on man, seriously you are trying too hard.

Game looks awesome, the new lighting engine is sweet and the cars are pure eye candy. Forza5 is absolutely superb visually and like its predecessors will play very well as usual which is why so many previews speak so highly of what Turn10 has done with Forza5.

xHeavYx1819d ago

Again, it was just a question (that it seems no one wants to answer). Why not provide an answer instead of wasting a bubble?

Wow insanely realistic. People need to stop complaing about the lack of detail in the trees or dynamic weather. Forza 5's game engine detail is much more natural and realistic to "real life detail" the graphics are perfect for a "racing game"

Driveclub's game engine is great, but it's graphics engine causes it's details to show unnaturally. The layers of detail pop out more and people claim that it means it has better graphics which isn't the case.

I can see why Driveclub got delayed, Forza at 60FPS and realistic detail is too overwhelming for Driveclub. These are one of the only titles you can do direct comparisons from each system and it's bad on sony's part because it will show that ps4 may be weaker. By delaying the launch it gives time for driveclub devs to make some changes and it allows direct comparison between the two games to not be a deciding factor of choosing a system to buy at launch. Smart move on Sony...

If you like to look at trees and enjoy observing weather.... Play Driveclub.

If you want to play realistically, see your cars and environment as close to real life appearances, play Forza 5

I can't believe this is a next gen game. This can easily be done on the ps3

feraldrgn1820d ago

Lol that edit, should've stuck with the original.

kiz26941820d ago

I agree, racing games cant really get much better graphically, its all about the simulation from now on and techniques used to create the game, and enhanced features.

VENOMACR12271820d ago

Must be a GT fan. Which is a shame considering Forza has surpassed GT.

FunkMacNasty1819d ago (Edited 1819d ago )

oooooohh!! can it, can it!?!? Tell me skydraoonity can it be done on the ps3!?!? THAT'S ALL I WANT TO KNOW.... oooohhh SOOOO exciting!!!

Not only can the ps3 run a next gen game like Forza 5, but here are some more fun facts you might not know about the ps3:

*The ps3 can re-enter the earth's atmosphere without catching fire

*If the ps3 loses a limb, it can biologically regenereate it within 6 hours

*The ps3 doesnt do push-ups, it pushes the earth down.

*Using the power of the cell, a team of ps3's commanded by Naughty dog developers took down Osama Bin Laden

*The 9/11 Terrorist attacks couldve been prevented by a ps3

*The ps3 was the first console in space

*Formula-one racing cars are powered by dual ps3's

*Ps3's deployed by the UN in North Africa are working in tandem with Polyphony Digital to eradicate famine in the Sudan (However, the process has taken 6 years to complete, and due to complications, many innocent Sudanese civilians have had to eat loaves of bread that were ported from 1999 and thus were rendered in standard mode when served).
