Holy High-Beams on Jessica in her "Pit Stop" segment!
Hmm, they missed out that you can also customise it with aero parts :/
These guys have a LOT of credibility, they are very good at what they do, and all they do is racing sims. One problem for the fanboys amongst us though, they also reviewed Forza 3. http://www.youtube.com/watc... They said it IS a sim, not an arcade racer, and at the time it was the best on consoles ever. They gave it a very high score 89 I think. Couldn't give it enough praise. So if you take their GT5 review serious, then you have to admit that FM3 is also a great SIM, and not a crappy arcade racer like many here claim it is.
They made another video apologising for what they said about Forza3 being a sim, and they said Forza 3 is not a simulator, it a great game. probably because of this video http://www.youtube.com/watc... and yes i played Forza 3 and its not a sim, it has arcade physics and incorrect track design Forza 3 does not simulate real car control and it does not simulate real track design.
@legend Give me a link to the video that they apologized in, not the silly video of some guy claiming the steering is funky in FM3. Further more even if what they say in your video up there is true, that does not make the game not a sim, its just one flaw, by that standard GT5 is not a sim because smashing into a wall at 150 does not effect performance throughout 95% of the game. Not to mention the insane under steer in many GT5 cars, and the moon physics. Just stop dude, both are great games, both are sims with a few flaws, why is that so hard for you to admit.
Actually in one of the comment on you tube the host said that the consoles do not have real sim racing games. So also that will inclued GT5.
Nobody noticed that she says also interesting things ? Ok kidding. After watching this review i think it's one of the best i've watched about this game.
Best review to date for sure,very useful info!
Good review, but this was posted already. edit ... Wow seriously she thought that sony or pd spelled "THRUSTMASTER" wrong. Its a good thing shes hot.
If you go to the Steering Wheels Option Menu in GT5, you will notice that "THRUSTMASTER" is spelled "TTHRUSTMASTER." The reason why she said it's spelled incorrectly is because of the extra "T."
LOL, guess im the tool. Never noticed it on my GT while doing my g27 setup but I will have to look again.
Key things 1. They said Fanatecs GT2-RS was the best performing wheel for GT5. 2. Admitted they can't stop playing the game. 3. Best physics and feedback on consoles. 4. Best graphics of any racer...PC included 5. Content i don't see haters in this topic? lololol Like it or not GT5 is the best simulator on consoles.
They actually didn't score the game, they said they were going to play more and give PD a chance to update features. They mocked early reviewers saying there was no way they could give a real in depth review in short time.
yup... i saw the whole 50 mins.. pretty great review. i read that you can calibrate ur FGT wheel by fully pressing the pedals once you get in the game. and yup.. no haters! q:
I like this show very much. All they do is sim. I can't way for the comparison that they will do between the game consoles sim racing games. Race Pro, FM 3, and GT5. I am glad they are liking GT5 and also they are taking there time playing it, so they can give a fair review. They did with FM3 they took their time.
This is what you call a review. Not only is it indepth, the guys are acutally people who know racing sims and know more about racing games than any other so called "journalist" on the various websites who have reviewed it so far. A neutral site like this just shows how much consideration and bias went into other sites which reviewed GT5. With that, I thikn i have invented a new term for Video game journalism- Bullshit'ism. It is so big, it is almost becoming a religion, fueled by the fanboys on all sides of the console wars.
"the guys are acutally people who know racing sims and know more about racing games than any other so called "journalist" on the various websites who have reviewed it so far." not to say that there isn't bias but why does everyone keep saying this towards GT5? are the only people allowed to review GT games the ones who like GT to begin with? i don't believe you have to be as hardcore as these guys to review GT5. not everyone is a hardcore racing fan and it gives a different perspective. this can help those who can relate a bit more to that reviewer. ex. gamers who never saw the appeal in sim racing games that might want to give it a try its like me giving a hockey game an 8 because its an opinion coming from someone who isn't really that big of a fan but still had some fun with it anyway
no one ever said the only people allowed to review this game are people who enjoy GT5. The point here is that these guys have done a very indepth review of GT5 which most sites have failed to do. Anyone who has played GT5 knows that you cannot unlock much just via playing the game for one and a half days. There is far too much content in there for anyone to do this. Someone like the site mentioned has actually done what reviewers would do for games such as GOW or Halo or Forza. They have played played and witnessed most if not all of what the game has to offer thoroughly and therefore been able to give a "fair" review. E.G. the licenses alone (there are 5 with 10 challanges in each one) will take an average gamer a few days to get through. The A-spec mode has 5 different stages (ranging from beginner to extreme). Within beginner alone are a further 9 typs of challanges and within one challange are several races. I haven't even gone into the special races (kart racing challanges, nascar challanges, nurnburg challanges ....) for which there are 8 in total which branch off into their own races and challanges within. This is just some of the content of offer here and I can't see how any reviewer regardless of how great they are at driving sims has managed to plough through all the content in the game to give it a fair review. So the question remains: how can anyone who has barely played the game give the game a full review? 2ndly, yes you do not have to hardcore like anything to review it, but review it for what it is. i.e. you cannot review a chocolate bar and mark it down for not being like a pack of crisps. or review a house and say it is not as good as a caravan. You review a product for what it is supposed to be. Most reviews have rated it going on other arcade racers and said as a racing sim it is 9/10 but as a arcade game it is 6/10. That's like me saying super mario brothers as a platformer is a 10/10 but as a fps it is a 4/10. It is the most absurd thing I have ever heard in my life. It is like reviewers are looking for reasons to shit on this game.
lol too deep it needs another month to review
This is the kind of review we have been looking for. It may not get a 90+ in the end, when they ultimately score it, but one can see from this preview (nearly 20 min of the 50 minute show) that they actually know what they are talking about. Inside Sim Racing is probably the only credible source for sim review in general. They live and breath sim racing (all aspects of it, including which wheels, pedal set and rig are the best). Also, I thought that body feedback sensor thing was really interesting and look forwards to their thoughts about it (never heard of it before). Anyhow, I realize many "regular" gaming outlets may not have the time to invest in the game like these guys do, but that is no excuse for full out slamming it with no real compensation given that they don't have the time to fully dig into the game. It is clear that whatever the final score, Inside Sim Racing WILL go above and beyond to give this game a more thorough, thoughtful, balanced, and complete run-through than any other outlet. Gotta give them credit for that. Hell, in this "mini-review", they even agreed that GT5 has the best overall graphics of ANY sim game out there, not just console..So, fanboys they are not. I look forwards to the final verdict.
their grading scale is also a bit different from other sites. high 80s from them is considered pretty good which is actually the way i like it
If they give GT5 praise, it basically can be considered a fact that this is a great, realistic sim. They know all simlulations on consoles and PC, iRacing, Live for Speed and rFactor, which is what real Formula 1 drivers use to practice. So they know what they're talking about. @lengend I heard that too, also world champion Vettel grew up with Gran Turismo games and still plays them on PS3. For sure they're not the only pro racers enjoying the game.
Sebastien loeb (9 times WRC champion) practice his laps using Granturismo and Fernando Alonso too.
I am going to make this video my favorite on Facebook. The guy actually said he likes the interface a lot. I wondered why all the bi** reviewers hated it, never found any problems with it at all.
They actually like the B-spec, and I enjoyed it all along, but all the corporate reviewers slammed it. Ya and they mentioned the thud sound of collision is perfect when some reviewers bitched about that too.
Am I the only that click because of the hot chick?
grat videom and jennifer lopez was hot
