Coooooooooooooooooool Whats the deal with the 'standard car' wheel customisation? getting a bit tired of the standard/premium thing already
Dude if this game doesn't receive 9.5 or 10 from the [email protected] who gave Forza3 (an average arcade racer) 10's across the boards then all is lost in gaming. This game wipes it's cheeks with every "supposedly" racing sim ever made. GT5 FTMFW!!!
It doesn't matter. This game, like MGS4 and several PS3 titles before it will be dissected in a manner, and for reasons which other games get a pass. Remember how broken the Gears 2 multiplayer was when it came out? Did any major site mention this or did they just slap a 9+ on it?
yup the game will be under a scrutiny like no other . Of course there will be some bs like "it's because the game was hyped/awaited for so long" , when other shorter developped games get the same harsh treatment . I wont go paranoid and say it's a anfi and fanboy thing from the press , but there is definitively some weird higher standard and expections for ps3 exclusives , wich ends up being a double edged sword . It's also Sony's fault ... they worded the issue poorly with standard/premium cars . It automatically translate in most brains like standard cars are unfinished , when they are easily up to the modelisation standards of every other great racers ... and doesnt let you think that the game got 200+ cars fully modelized , with close to 0 in other games .
we all know 360 has free pass on so many issues, so don't be bothered by reviews. We all know in lifetime sales 10 million people will buy GT5, while FOrza is lucky if it breaks 1 million, so who cares about Forza some unknown game. We might as well speak about Need for Speed, that is bigger franchise.
I believe PD didn't have enough time to customize the standard cars seeing that they had to render the GT4 cars in HD. So changing wheels on standard cars is disable nor can you change the colour of the wheels. Most customizations is only available on the premium cars. Considering that we have so many new features coming its only a minor set back. I have no qualms with it.
I'm sure this game will be brilliant but i do have qualms about not being able to change wheels on standard cars , i like to personalise everything and while it may seem insignificant i actually think it's quite a big deal. I wouldn't boycott the game or start slagging people off about it but it is slightly disappointing
this is what im talking about when I say PD have shocking time management skills. Forza, for all its faults lets you change wheels on all your cars. If PD is so good, why cant they match that standard feature? Surely replacing part of the 3d Model cant be that hard. Sure, Sony fanboys, bubble-rape me, call me a troll, whatever. Im going to be playing this more than most of you. Doesnt mean we cant critisize obvious faults in the game. F3 DOES have more consistant detail on all of its cars.
PD are the types of people that recreated ONE premium car in a total of 6 months. They are the types of people that recreates ONE track in a total amount of 2 years. This is what seperates them from any other sim. Sure they could take the "easy" route, putting "scripted" damage and updated not-so-detailed interiors, etc etc. Please remember that KAZ is CATERING to the hardcore of the hardcore so it is understandable that average gamers like us may find this to be overwhelming and confusing. They are the total opposite of Activision/COD, and I admire them for it. Consider GT5 the BIGGEST "niche" of the gaming franchise. -End statetment
I agree with you SMW. I put over 150 hours into Forza3 and I know I'll be putting more into this but I am slightly disappointed by the standard cars and lack of features for them. Having said that I don't think it'll spoil my enjoyment of the game. I gave up playing forza because of the kick system and bias towards audis in the game. As long as GT plays well and the online component works I'll be happy until gt6.
if -news talks about gt5 then -add stunning word to it -even if -it's not. edit: No others body parts, only a wing... omg Too bad, those Civic are one of my favorite cars in this game. Often the first i drive in it.
Cannot wait!!!! I only have one little problem with this game and that is no cockpit or windshield view on standard cars.
Why are these videos "stunning" and "breathtaking" when they've been recorded with a camera phone and they're low res? Give us HD dangit!!
Is this "stunning" like the damage video was "breathtaking"? Lol. I'm waiting for the video of the "magnificent" loading screen.
really? why do you care, have you played the full game to test damage? get a ps3 first
I still dont get why you cant change the wheels on used cars? i dont care about the difference between standard cars and premium but at least i wanted them both to have almost the same amount of options, i mean just think about it this way, going 160mph on hubcaps lol, it will be cool if they did DLC for the wheels of standard cars? is this game gona have any DLC, cus i havent heard anything about it, does anyone know?
I mean really, what developer would want 80% of their cars to NOT have the cockpit view and not have customization, and not have full damage,a nd not look as good as the rest of the game. I highly doubt this is the product that PD wants to put out. Sony probably looked at the 200 number and said "You must be kidding, we can't have other games with more cars than us, just throw in the GT4 ones." I don't think its fair that just cause I happen to like a car that is standard i should be stuck with bumper cam while you like a car that's premium and you get cockpit view. They could have a at least done a tuned down cockpit view. Forza got 400 cockpits in 2 years and those don't look that bad. i don't know how you post links but... https://yratuw.bay.livefile... Its not to the level of GT5 premium cocpits but i beats bumper cam, that's for sure. Bumper cam just seems so 5 years ago. And going back to it really messes with my car control, the perspective just seems odd. And after all, its a SIM....who drives a car from the bumper? I don't get the customization issue either. What's the point having car clubs if we can't have custom looks to put on all of our cars just cause some of them are standard? Most likely i will stick to the 200 premium cars in the game, cause I can't go back to bumper cam, and i like to customize my cars. i'm from trinidad so i paint all of my cars in my national colours and create logos from my country like local banks and beers and stuff. I think the livery editor was confirmed a while back so I'm happy there. Look for me in a red, white and black Ferrari. Wish it was the 355 challenge, but unfortunately no luck there. I'll use the 430 then :)
For me GT5 is turning out to be a big disappointment. I mean the graphics look great and are unrivaled in any racing game this gen, and most likely will remain that way. But this game has been in development for almost 6 years!!! Having just 230 cars that have cockpit views out of 1031 cars is pathetic. The customization is extremely limited and the physical and mechanical damage on only certain cars is down right laughable. You can't even change the tires on standard cars? Really? almost 6 years and we can't change tires on the majority of the cars? I had such huge expectations for GT5. Almost 6 years in development and I find myself asking....what have you done PD in those 6 years to create the definitive racing sim on the market and compete with already existing games currently available. Greatly disappointed in this game.
I feel greatly disappointed by you and the comment you left. A true gamer would recognise all the new features that are more than welcome to the series and pd went out of their way to include, rather than focus on one small negative. C*#t of the year more like....
Ah I see, you are one of GT's blind sheep. Yes there are added features in the game, but none that are needed. The core of what GT5 was suppose to be is A SIMULATOR. All the extra features should have been applied AFTER PD had created a true sim game. Plenty of those features are useless features. This is suppose to be the "definitive" racing game on the market. I mean almost 6 years in development and we can't change the tires of a car? Tires are kinda important when racing. Damage on "some" cars. Ya real definitive. No cockpit view for over 800 cars....And that's suppose to be definitive? Why don't you recognize the facts. GT5 was suppose to be the definitive racing game this gen due to it's long history of GT games and the amount of development time put into the game. Yet instead of getting actual CORE elements to make this a simulation game, we get features that hold no bearing to making the game the definitive racing sim this gen. Take off the goggles and see it for what it is. I have been a GT fan for years dating back to GT on the original PS1 but to no be disappointed in what PD is offering in this game considering the amount of development just makes you a blind sheep. And the fact you have to name call just makes you look more like the ignorant sheep I made you out to be.
What is it with you fanboys that won't hear a word said against a game that you have no personal stake in whatsoever? Changing tyre widths and compounds is a pretty important aspect of a racing SIM don't you think? Only being able to do it on certain cars is ridiculous.
it sucks for someone like me, who is a huge fan of the late 80s/early to late 90s/very early 00's japanese performance cars. sure, i get 40 skylines, 30 wrxs, 30 rx7s etc - but none of them have cockpits, none of them can be visually modified, and i basically may as well just be playing GT4 all over again.
