Ok, if it wasn't for the car, I would have a very difficult time believing if the environment wasn't real footage. How they manage to pull off this realistic outlook considering the game is notoriously known for utilizing 2D assets is just beyond amazing. I can't imagine what happens if they manage to further optimize their engine in GT6 (if it ever comes).
that's why they call GT5 a race simulator it look sooo realistic
Simulators have to do with physics behind the racing part, not visuals.
2 days for DLC release oh snap!
(well 4:00AM local) with a gang from New Zealand. Due to settings & time constraints, I ran the '08 Impul GT-R & The Kenwood NSX LM Road Car on it. The track was nothing short of amazing having graced it for the first time, but the weather effects (pouring rain and puddles) on the course took it over the top. Colour me amazed.
Its also amazing how people compare this game to forza, and even though this game was in development years before forza, it is still better looking. The devs were learning how to use the ps3 while making this game, imagine gt6 on ps3, it would be totally amazing. Put forza to shame, it would be beyond question that it was superior.
So why bring Forza to strictly GT thread?
@M1chl You've probably never been to a Forza thread!
because its regarding gt. how elese can i compliment gt without comparing it to its 'competition' ? that it looks this good in comparison to games still coming out today is amazing. dont get offended, its no big deal
bennyace: You're right. I stopped coming to threads of bot hgames long ago. Because Forza vs Gt is incredibly stupid and its one of the biggest shame of gaming community. I don't even know why I clicked to this news... pcz: I don't mean it like that, I am just worried about incoming shitstorm of fanboys...
In denial much? I love gt5 but stop with your stupid blind fanboys comments! Forza 4 is superior in EVERY WAYS! but PD did a great job for spa..its does look great!
IRONY AT its best
Yep, they keep trying to believe, keeps them happy I suppose.
TVR Tamora at Spa Francorchamps in the rain - http://www.youtube.com/watc... Ferrari F10 at Spa Francorchamps Race in the sunshine - http://www.youtube.com/watc...
the lighting in both were awesome, and the ferrari sound was absolutely spot on. hey PD with the next set of dlc do you think we can get Mclaren, and Red Bull F1 cars?
Probably not get F1 cars, due to the licencing. The Ferrari's are older models and licenced directly from Ferrari due to whatever deal they have with the FIA.
well that sucks, damn FIA. it would be awesome to have the top 10 teams from F1 in GT5. also has anyone been over to GTPlanet some of the commenters are saying the journalist from hacked the file to get SPA so he could make the video lol. this generation of gamers have done nothing but complain. i would also love for PD to put more F1 tracks in with their next dlc along with some old classics. a few more exotic's wouldnt hurt either lol.
Definitely would like them to get the Singapore GP track and, honestly, I really like the Korean GP track as well, never saw a race on it until today.
I think the foggy weather effects makes it look more realistic because lighting is a lot softer.
Pretty much. IMO, the game looks it's best in cloudy rain weather, or night racing.
its pretty but that sounds nothing like a lamborgini at all but the Cockpit View is imacculate, it looks 10x better than Forza 4 and the driving looks alot more true to life. Just a shame about the non premium cars looking like shite (unless this update fixed that) and the sounds of the cars being way off. EDIT: Fanboys.....you praise and give legitimate criticisims and they still attack you unless you say the game is perfect.
You mean you have yet to play the update?
i never knew how important sound could be until forza 4. polyphony better take note.. this gives me chills http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The difference, my sugar cookie, is that gt5 is truly dynamic in its sound, not as if your head is taped to the part of the vehicle that holds the motor, all while being able to listen to the exhaust notes at the same time as if ure standing right behind the vehicle. The best car sounds in gt5 are in the replay as the camera pans low and behind your car. If unrealistic vrrrooooooommmmmmm all the time is so important, there are many racing games available, just not this sim. Edit: and who said this sim is perfect? I could tear this thing apart in criticism. Yours is just poorly constructed and didnt hold merit.
did you watch the video the sound in forza 4 is amazing and without a doubt better then gt5 and forza 3. i know this is a gt5 article and all but, as a fan of the gt series i want better sound recording in the next one. unrealistic? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
You totally, totally! Missed the point, just because you saw the word unrealistic, you got your panties in a bunch because you think im taking a stab. Hun, if its so much better, then go play your game...then you can hear the same car noise even when your REFERENCE point is sitting on the bonnet, the trunk, hanging of a door....or playing soccer, because in real life, thats how it would be. Right?
maybe i did but i think we just share a difference of opinion you seem to like dynamic sound and i like realistic sound effects. dynamic sound effects mean nothing to me if all of them sound pretty much the same. i think we can both agree that a Marriage of the 2 would be amazing. edit: you also seem to think i dont play both the forza and gt series which is false. in fact i play gt more then i ever will forza because of the physics and wheel support.
How on bloomin earth did they make Spa look...look so damn real!!! Like DigitalAnalog has said above, if the inside of the car was replaced by the interior of a real-life car, I would think that someones driving in Spa real time!!!
I can tell the guy is not using REAL in grass/side strip grip option. Come on Tuesday!
The update 2.0 was disappointing- the new interior view for standard models is a joke: black rectangles at the bottom of the screen, with a few exceptions (cabriolets, race cars with no roof etc.) Sorry about being quite off topic btw
How can you be disappointed when they said that's what it was going to include?
The Veyron interior is all I saw so far. And it is a joke.
Yes, but, as I said, this is what they said they were going to do, being disappointed after playing it is redundant. Veyron is still a standard car.
Looks so real. Best looking racing game ever made.
