EA has put out a comparison video of Shift 2's cockpit racing and compare it to Forza 3 and GT5.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pP4kGZj4pzE

Thought it was worth pulling out of the Shift thread to highlight, they really do have a great sense of seem going on, sim or sim/arcade racer.

I'm interested now anyway.

This is not unlike the Bulletstorm ad. "Boring...boring...boring....decelerate to turn, SO REAL."

The only thing that really seems different is the FOV.

They are showing off the best of their game against the big competitors tho, I like it, it's all good competition.

Yeah they aren't comparing features, gameplay etc but this vid works well, really gets across that speed feeling.

I'm interested now but only as long as the gameplay lives up to is and offers something different from the other big two which I have still to play more of.

Problem is that this video is intentionally misleading.

For all 3 games to be honest.

Is shows Forza in bad light.

It shows GT5 in the worst light (BGM, wtf??)

And Shift 2 looks like it is a pile-up destruction derby with LSD-propelled lunatic behind the wheel and his eyeballs attached to capture-card .

Classy marketing of course, they've learned from the best it seems.

Maybe they should be comparing their game to Forza 4. I'm sure Turn 10 has made some improvements.
Plus, doesn't Shift 2 run at 30fps? I'll take 60fps in my racing game over some bouncy helmet cam any day of of the week.

Can't stand the fact that they think realistic is blurring your vision on anything that isn't directly out the front windscreen. Too bad if I wanted to take a glance at the dashboard/gauges in anything higher than second gear.

lol I like the way they completely dubbed sound right over the Shit 2 footage.

You can hear the car reving when you can see the dial on the car actually slowing down.

Stay classy.

I can still check the weight shift in my wheels while I'm driving, right?

EDIT: Did they also just not bother driving when playing FM3 and GT5?

Taking cheap shots at gt5 and forza showing some bad driving in both to top it off.

That first clip looks insanely good. There's no way the lighting is actually that good in the game. I swear it looks real to me.

The second Shift clip, on the other hand, doesn't look nearly that good.

edit: I'm an idiot...the first clip is Live Action.

I'm going to say exactly what came to mind watching that

Real footage - yeah it's real, cam stuck to helmet stuff.
Forza 3 - much smoother ride little to no driver reactions, stiff driver.
GT5 - much more movement, completely different car however.
Shift 2 - I was expecting this to look like the real footage but the only similarities are that the drivers head is being thrown around, visuals look just as clean as F3 and GT5, no dirt on the windows or on the cars, they look like they just been freshly waxed.

So um... what was this about again?

Their reasoning is that it forces you to focus on the road ahead and your rivals.

GT5's looks by far the best. Shift 2's is too jerky and I'm really not liking the excessive blur or pull back. I get that it's trying to emulate braking and accelerating, but it's too excessive.

But you do that when racing in racing games anyway. Your vision automatically focuses on the road and blurs out the dash. Then when you want to focus on the dash you can. It's idiotic to not give you the choice and just permanently have the excessive blur.

It's a pretty shitty comparison to be honest but that's what marketing is all about.

Apparentely, the 'normal' cockpit view doesn't feature the blur.
I also agree that the G-force simulation (brake/accelerate) is overdone.
I don't understand why there aren't any options for fine tuning those effects. I mean, PC racers have been doing that for years, especially given the fact that SMS comes from a PC sim racer background..

Not sure if I like the blurring or not but it definitely looks more exciting than either Forza 3 or GT5.

If I'm going to bother buying any racing game this year before F1 2011 comes out, it'll be this one.

Shift 2 has less aliasing than GT 5 [720p 4x MSAA] - yeah right.

And that comparison is just a joke, really pathetic joke, especially first live part with camera angles and shakes.
This is how it looks like

When the Shift 2 cockpit shook and blurred, I felt like I was in that vehicle. Like I was right fucking there, like I was transported to the tarmac. This is the next evolution of cockpit realism...a revolution, even.

They all looks like crap. None of the cockpit views in these 3 games realistically portray what the drivers see whilst in the drivers seat.

Until they get it right I will just play bumper cam baby.

I like that they intentionally left GT5s cluttered HUD on, so they could imply Shift 2 was the only one with a hudless racing option.

Yeah, it first I thought: damn, if they manage this kind of lighting, who needs next gen. Then it slowly dawned: "Live Action". Hahahaha >.<
