which ps3 game to get? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Idk why everyone knocks on grid as being to "arcadish" of a game. It is half arcade half gran turismo imo. Grid has damage though. You can't just slam into other cars to slow down for a turn or gas it into a wall on the far end of a turn and just drive off. The cars damage and start pulling left/right or not going as fast as normal. I think that alone adds more realism than the physics/tuning in gran turismo.

GRID is great back as previously said, very much an arcade racer, as opposed to simulation like GT5 Prologue. GRID, as said above, has damage though which is very realistic too. i dunno bout GT5 Prologue...it is fun, kinda. needs a lot of time i guess.

why not wait, Battlefield: Bad Company is out soon, that should be good. im not too big on racing games sorry, i have NFS ProStreet, and most will flame me for this, but i liked it a lot.

also just got Lego Indiana Jones, after Lego Star Wars Saga was awesome

have you got Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction?

i'm also curious why people say grid is an arcade racer? after playing it i would classify it as a sim

i haven't looked into bad company, whats that about?

i've always been a fan of the NFS series, i never played pro street though

i played lego star wars on ps2 and that game was awesome, never got the indiana jones one though. my co-worker has it though, i may borrow it from him later. same with ratchet and clank.

the FEEL of GRID is more of an arcade style game, it doesnt have that simulator feel, well thats my opinion anyway. feels completely different to GT5 thats for sure.

Bad Company is the PS3 and Xbox360's answer to the Battlefield series, only its got a story driven singleplayer as well as multiplayer. you can get the demo on the PSN Store. definitely worth a look if you like console FPS.

the problem with ProStreet is, hardcore NFS fans wont like it, coz it strays so far from what NFS essentially is. its a great game, but try not to look at it as a NFS game and more of a "do up your car and push it as hard as it goes" racing day type game.

yeah Lego star Wars saga was awesome, but once its 100% completed, thats it really, so i assume Indiana Jones will be the same. might be best just to borrow it, i prefer to own all my games though.

with Ratchet and Clank, that game is seriously worth owning, you can replay the entire game a good 2 or 3 times to get all weapons at max, and its really fun and pretty comical, the cutscenes and story are done really well.
