i haven't seen any PC screenshost yet. and reading few previews and watching this one long video. In few places it mentioned that PC game will be different.

on ign there is a review of x360 version, if i remember correctly the game got an 8 out of 10, i can't check right now.

Different in which way ?? (graphics , gameplay , controls ??)
& are these differences positive or negative in comparsion to the X360 version ??

The 360 version rocks, plain and simple, but I'm sure the PC version will be just the same, maybe a little bit more graphical quality.

They didn't say.

But it one video, I believe it was from gametrailers, that there will be sacrifice

so far i haven't seen any PC screenshots.

ATARI needs to be careful, TDU and NWN2 are the only two games that could save ATARI from going under. they better not screw it up.

speaking of TDU on x360, from the reviews, i read that the game is far from perfect. head to ign, they mentioned that people look weird. Bikes ride weird.

and no damage is quite a disapoitment.

anyway, i'm still waiting for it,

If you want auto manufacturers to continue allowing you to license their products, you're not going to have damage in your game.

umm, then what was that thing that happens in Race Driver, NFS games, Forza, GT Legends, GTR2, Project Gothan 2?

when car hits something it gets bend, or paint comes off. last time i checked thats called damage. all those games that i list have licensed cars.

in previews they mentioned they left out damage, because of MMO aspect of the game, they didn't wanted people to pay to repair the cars.

i'm not asking for full damage, ala race driver, flatout or crashday

i just want dents, scuff, and paint to come off, same like in Most Wanted.

both games are arcade

I've been waiting for this game for a long time now. Fully 3D modeled detailed interiors and support for the TrackIR. I just hope the PC gameplay isn't too much arcade style. I think the MMO racing will be quite fun. Auto Assault wasn't my cup of tea but MMO street racing, O rly. Flash your head lights, challenge head to head and go. Some car damage would be nice, I haven't seen any yet, not a scratch but I'll be driveling a McLaren SLR soooo. Plus it's Oahu and I've been to Oahu a few times. It's got all the major roads and landmarks in the game. They have a nice list of cars and bikes also. In car view fully rendered and detailed and fully functional, lights, wipers, turn signals, hood and trunk. I think you can play with the radios too.
I just hope to see a demo some time soon.


Release date is November 29th here. Still a long time...

OOOo that sux, I don't know about Switzerland but in the US it's 10/24 for PC and 11/14 for PSP.

Yeah I've read the same thing. Very bad bike handling and just didn't feel right or very good but I think it was all console and pad. I'll have a wheel and shifter for sur I just hope it's somwhere in between NFMW & GTL.

The bike handles horrible. It feels like you're driving on oil spills the entire time.

Are you talking about the 360 version with a Pad or a wheel? Do they slide out too easy or move too quick?

nice in-car view there...
Thats what I'm getting this game for. Perfect in-car or on bike views with headtracking.

Yeah but it's MMO, I doubt they will allow modified handling to run online.
As long as I get to drive those cars in Hawaii in any realistic way, I'll be happy.

This game is a bit aimless and gets boring after a while. I am seriously thinking of trading it for PGR3 for the 360. One of the challenges is to drive round every single road on the island. Its not happening.

I played it with the analog 360 controller. It took several seconds to get the bike to turn and when it finally did it cornered like a 1912 Model T.

Overall, the controls need some work. I'm waiting for the PC version, myself, because I do think despite these bugs it'll be a cool game.

It looks good ,I like games like that as I like all the Need for Speed games.But I do not understand what the deal is about showing damage.

I know this is trustedreviews and they can't be trusted but check it out.

Edit: New trailer is came out last week. I missed it. I'm really excited about this game. After watching the trailer I don't care they don't have damage. They have damage on the cars you hit, parts go flying and sparks and everything. In a game like this I would prefer no damage actually at least online. Single player I would like damage but really who would want to spend their cash on repairing their car when you can use it on a new part or bike or threads or house.
By the time this hits I should have a brand new Logitech G25 wheel. Drool.
