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.
rehosted, thanks saladine1
The only thing that really seems different is the FOV.
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.
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.
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION
is this meant to be public?
It was me.
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.

Yeah this ad is going to backfire pretty badly.
Taking cheap shots at gt5 and forza showing some bad driving in both to top it off.
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?
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.

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..
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

... GT 5 and FM3 came out on top in that video, Shift looks a bit I dunno, excessive and that pop forward shit is annoying..
Also, DAT FM3 sound.
Its not excessive its EXTREEEMEEE!!

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

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.
