Major improvement over their last Cobra game I played. I really wish it was more sim'ish but as is it's not total arcade. Had good car damage and deformation too. Car handles and pulls like crazy when car gets damage the wrong(right?) way.

DLing now, thanks.

Edit: Wow what a fun game. Demo world is huge considering the demo is only 285mb. I know I'll be getting this.

Yeah, this game is darn good, especially visually. I'm having a very hard time finding out when it will be out on PC. Anyone?

O Noez, I don't think this has a US publisher. The last Cobra game never came to the US, I hope this one does.

I must agree on the visuals. The game has me extremely impressed as it probably has some of the best designed graphics I have ever seen in a racing game. The HDR works really well and the size of the demo area is huge considering the small size of the demo. Those screenshots don't really do it justice, because in motion it does a great job of masking any traces of the fact that it's only 285 megs. Only occasionally do you see that the textures are really blurry.

Judging from the demo, I feel this is the best looking PC racing game to date.

Whodathunkit, the driving part is actually pretty damn good, the visuals are great too. Seems like a sleeper hit to me, whens the full game coming out?

Dirt and Grid do not have nearly as sharp textures, have poorer lighting and put on way too much post processing.

Burning Wheels looks very much like GT5.

Grid looks years ahead of this game, no comparison.

Cars in GT5 are very detailed this, Grid got very nice looking cars too but those in Burninrg wheels looks like those in Most Wanted. But it's very fun game nad drivers AI is not bad.

the game has good lighting(better than grid, but nowhere close to gt5), but the game assets and shadows are terrible.

What the hell is with the scenery in that pic? :lol:

The side walk is banked and the texture isn't lined up...

Go play the demo. Trams can't make square turns. The city level is rather complex and detailed.

Is very nice , only need some better textures and shadows . Looks much better than other games in a open city , like GTA 4 , and better than other racing games , yes , the enviroment and the city look better than other famous games like GRID, GT5 , PGR3 , or looks very very near

Its a bug of sorts I think. There is stupid trick fix. You have to use the gamepad when you exit out of the Controller menu.

NOTE!


Antyaliasing works only when you turn it in game I had turned in drivers and there was no AA now game looks much better!

I've got it figured out. It's like most console games now. Whatever control starts the game is the controller that is going to be used, same with NBA2K. Just use the pad to start the game instead of hitting enter. This game reminds me of Driver but with MUCH much better gameplay and controls.
