This car sounds so weird and annoying... It almost sounds like a baby crying. The game does look pretty sweet though.
meh 1. The physics are all wrong in this game. at those speeds the amount of time the car got loose it would have spun out. on some corners it was just glitching around them and on other turns the car behaved as if it had rear wheel steering. 2. why are the vented disc brakes glowing hot on a straight away? fix that please! 3. the suspension effects were over blown on straight aways with too much bounce seems this is an arcade game
Looks more arcade than real physics to me Second video looks good though
HOLY CRAP at the graphics.
After putting in some Considerable time with GT5 those graphics are meh. The car physics look awful from a racing sim standpoint, but hey this is NFS an it has always been a arcade racer.
The Driver XP bar is pretty cool.
Looks rubbish imo. I hope this is a pre-alpha version or something.
IS this a driving simulator or a speedboat simulator? It's like he's on rough sea or something?! Weird physics.
Holy shiz. Nurburgring is NOT that wide. That's almost double the width, it ruins the track. Environment looks great though, sense of speed is spot on too. Car interior looks crappy though, and the driver animation is jittery. Then again, I'm spoiled by GT5 as far as cockpits go. Oh, and the physics... they need to get straight whether they want a sim or arcade game. It looks like he's on ice, no sense of tire grip at all and the car just slides at every turn. Not even sliding actually, it's like,,, floating.
A : Ive driven round Nurburgring and it's that wide. B : The car cockpits in GT5 are no better than this, at least they put glass in the windows and windscreen in shift. C: Just like in real life the Trees are 3D and not paper cut outs. D: Watch all of this guys videos and you'll see he's shockingly bad at racing games so impossible to judge the physics from these videos. ... and lastly I have a signature edition of GT5, psn Spyder Si if you want a race.
Lol, you almost sounded genuine. To be more specific, I completely disagree with points B (pretty obviously wrong tbh) and D. As for point C - the trees in this game actually look worse than those 2D trees in GT5 (very low texture resolution in comparison) and the bushes and etc. are 2D anyway. I agree with A, though, this seems a fairly accurate representation in comparison to Shift 1's nurburg. Although it's still very flat (not much grass like other game's versions, also they haven't captured the bumps as well as they could have - something few devs have managed so far to be fair)
Maybe you need some galsses son, the interiors are better in GT5. The trees in this are also cutouts unlike real life. And it also runs in a lower resolution and everything looks somewhat muddier and soft, and why the haze in the background. And maybe you didnt watch the second video the one with PIP and you can see the physics are aweful.
Do you get reflections of the dashboard on your windscreen in GT5? No, so I'm not sure how you disagree. And arguing that a 2D tree is preferable to a 3D one is pretty laughable tbh. This guys videos are uploaded in 480p so I doubt you can make an accurate judgement of texture quality.
Dood there is pop in on the trees that are closest to you, if you pay attention you will see added detail pops in once you get up on the tree. Now that after i watch the video a couple of times it keeps getting worse and worse with things that i see that are just terrible. This game does not run 60 fps, cause they couldnt hit 720p while doing it. So the game is locked at 30fps. Its at the site go read.
OMG you've driven on the nur! I just took a stroll on the moon. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Attacking a racing game because the trees look bad just makes you worse btw.
@r2kcipher : fine you don't believe me, I've also driven round Silverstone, Donington, Mallory Park, Castle Coombe and Bedford autodrome ... yeah, I like track days. I also love driving games and have been playing GT since PS1. I'm not attacking that game because of the trees but even the biggest Sony fanboy must have got a shock when they realised that 5 years in development didn't produce the polish GT fans deserved.
WTF did they do to nuburgring ? It don't look like this IRL and track is way off.
This guy drives slower than my gran, 9 minute lap?!!! Should be a couple of minutes faster than that, why is it journalists are so shit at games?
Because most of them are not gamers which is why the gaming media is a complete joke.
Not gamers? Lol, I've been playing games for 15 years. And yes I know the lap time was slow, I had no assists and it was my first time using the car. The Pagani Huayra is nearly uncontrollable at some points, it feels way to light with hardly any grip. On my second time I was down to 7:20.
Did I say I agreed with him and say the guy in this video sucks? No. I was merely stating as a generalization that most so called journalist are not gamers. I'm suprised you did as well as you did driving with that wheel in your lap. BTW I have been gaming nearly 20 years longer than you. What do I win?
What's with all the banner adverts?! - ruined it.
Whoever disagreed, do you really prefer the track with all those banners and adverts for EA games?
The first SHIFT was good, but the driving was too floaty while turning. The second video, it looks like they might have sorted out the floatiness a bit, but with the player driving so slow, you can't really tell. The driving physics was poor in SHIFT, I hope its sorted for SHIFT 2, If it is I'll buy it as I love driving games using my wheel/pedals.
Since when did Pagani implement rear wheel steering on their cars?
I'll take Dirt 3!!
So will I! :
