I'm a big movie nerd--a pretentious one, at that. But you know what action series I really enjoy? The Fast and the Furious. It's a great ride, absolutely bonkers action with a lot of heart, pulled together by a real strong ensemble.
This game looks pretty last-gen, which isn't a good sign when it comes to its production value, but it could still impress when more gameplay's shown. Here's hoping.
Coming to Steam, PS4, and XONE in May 2020.

Made by slightlymad studios, unless they REALLY dropped their ball, it must be a gameplay over graphics game. Even so, coming from them who made PCars is completely off sounding.

My thoughts as well. After Project Cars, why is this game so visually unimpressive? Seems reminiscient of a time when licensed games were mostly cheap tie-ins. Oh, please don't be.

I think its a small team making it, but even so, I bet part of the vehicles were already in PCARS.

The problem is that the car models and vehicle physics look pretty good. but when the game shows anything else, it looks pretty bad. The vehicle portions may end up being pretty good, this character model looks like it came out of the pS2 generation.

Have no idea why they would give the title to slightly mad, they have no experience on making over the top action game and it shows. Animation is stiff and driving doesn’t seem fun at all. Why not give it to avalanche studios’ mad max team, they will at least do an OK job on this game.

Avalanche could do a superb job with Fast and Furious, yeah!
But I'd prefer they made another Mad Max. With the nemesis system! :)

A bit of a weird game to finish the show on, especially one that looks so bad graphics wise.

The highly anticipated sequel.



Actually, I guess Bandai Namco still has the Fast and Furious game license. They also published Project Cars. I guess Bamco thought it would be best to hand off development to slightly Mad Studios.
That was actually a decent game. Just racing, you just free roamed around Tokyo racing other games. Not unlike the late Tokyo Xtreme Racer series, though not as good.

Took a whole generation, but the PS4/Xbone finally has its next-gen Wallguy and Frame City Killer.

They need to hire some artists to work on the faces/animation. The characters barely have any texture to them. It reminds me of 360/PS3 open world character animations.

This looks like someone was cleaning out the Bandai Namco PS2 studio and found this down the back of the sofa

That semi truck tipping over with no dust/smoke/sparks/sound/anything :messenger_tears_of_joy:
This and the alpha effects for the fire and explosions are last-gen hahaha. This game came from nowhere and will return to dust without anyone noticing. I feel bad for slightly mad studios.

Stop giving it a hard time, to match Vin Disels incredible acting range they had to make it his face animate like a PS2 game, it's a sacrifice for the art!

I don't. They should've ditched their loudmouth CEO a long time ago. This is karma for all the stupid shit that came from Ian Bell's mouth.
