so who preordered grid 2? - Page 14

post #131 of 165
I've played half an hour and the fun has worn off. What is with 1 sprint races constantly?

Wish I'd never bought it, nothing like the first grid.

Project CARS is amazing, i signed up to the Pre Alpha about a year ago, its coming on so nicely! Its very much like Forza / GT5 with Crysis 3 graphics! Shame you can't sign up anymore for testing. RaceRoom Experience is also a great sim but DLC is very expensive. Once you have bought a couple of tracks and cars, it really starts to shine though.

Here's some screenshots i've taken recently of Project CARs on my rig:












Wow game looks nice cant wait

Game has improved as I have played around with the settings,

(also posted this in the benchmarks discussions thread)

Set feedback on my controller to 100% (default is 50)
when racing because I like the finality of a big impact I have
Damage Set to FULL
Collisions ON (only ghosts standstill and oncoming now)
Flashbacks to 0 allows for vehicle write off.

and Yes you can upgrade cars, the Afla has been upgraded to a Tier2 car with Engine Transmission and Handling upgrades, it does make a different

couple of bugs.
Top speed on speedometer bears no resemblance to stop speed when going flat out (Probably a balance issue)
bug where people who write their cars off get booted out while spectating.
and a final balance issue of not being penalised for taking terrible corners, but I am sure it can be ironed out.

starting to have lots of fun with the game.
its different yes, but thats not all bad.

finally, please don't hate me smile.gif

Hey Bakerman - I like the constructive criticism you're giving. Rather than just being like "THIS GAME IS AMAZING (even though I've only played it for half hour) 10/10!!!!1111". Or "This game sucks!! (because I haven't bothered to give it a proper chance and play with settings yet)". You're not the only one who is actually trying to explain good points and bad points. But you just seem like you're keeping a cool head and being reasonable with your opinions on the game. I still am not sure whether to buy this yet. But I wanted to ask you what other racing games you really enjoy playing, on any platform?

Personally I love Gran Tursimo & Forza the most. I also enjoy some of the Simbin games, to an extent. But then I also loved all the Need for speed games right up until Underground 2 and the one after that, Most wanted I think it was called. I used to enjoy the first Grid, but the handling was just a bit weird and skatty. Couldn't quite gel with it so stopped playing after a few months or so. Then there is NFS Shift 2 which is sorta alright, but again - skatty handling so I don't play it. Dirt 2 was alright sometimes as well. Basically I'm much more of a Sim type guy, but I can definitely enjoy a good arcade or sim influenced arcade racer if it's done right. Just can't figure out if I will like this game :/ And it seems like there is no pc demo which sucks....

I used to think that noone cares to make a racing simulation (not stupid arcades, they don't belong in pcs) however i'm convinced that It seems noone "can" do simulation on PC.

Somehow someone needs to convince Polyphony to make Gran Turismo available for PC. Then Need for Speed series will die.

So I completely ignore racing games on PC.
