iRacing setting the gold standard in ice skating simulators!
This is 2 weeks from release and apparently the latest 'day one' build. Are you telling us porkies? :/
There is no denying, Project CARS is still an unfinished title.
Hmm. Seems like the game has serious issues with the AI and fast open wheeled cars. :/
Cue in the PCARS defense force about day 1 update and almost quite not definite final code. I will only judge the game on release, but I feel like I cant trust the hype and praise due to the conflict of interest from the people who want this to succeed no matter what due to their donations and the constant denial of any issue as nothing more than not the final golden code.
I have absolutely no idea TBH! Conventional wisdom is that sim racers rate poorly but on the other hand pretty graphics get a plus (tons of people seem to by driving games for 'shiny' only!).
what review score do you think pCARS will meta?
Maybe this dude can detect things that VVV Alan can't because he carefully. treats. every. single. word. as. a. separate. sentence, thus freeing up brain power to observe things that mere mortals cannot.
Yeah, I completely agree.I will treat reviews of this like I treat the reviews of all racing games.
by ignoring them till i try it for myself. The majority of games reviewers seem unable to play racing games.
(there are a few I can listen to, but even then man times with sims/driving games it is a personal feeling with the handling.)
People have a genuine hard on for Project CARS in some sim racing circles. It's hard to parse the hyperbolic horse shit from genuine things to be conserned about. I normaly wouldn't post it, but the crashes on turn one of Spa got me frowning.
Still I hate anything above Formula 3000 so it might not effect me.
I'm sure there's people like that (well... by looking at WMD I know there is lol) but for what it's worth, I haven't seen any of those here on GAF. I don't care about the ROI... I paid 65$ 4 years ago to basically pre-order the game... If I make a couple of bucks back then great but I'm not actually expecting getting anything significant... This is a non factor for me.
As far as our opinion goes, some of us have been playing hundreds of hours of the game over the last 4 years. We saw it go from something kinda terrible and extremely rough to something that is genuinly great. It's not perfect by any means but I still think it's one of the best sim to come out in YEARS. At the end of the day that's MY opinion.... It's as valid as that other guy's opinion.
I just wanna know how the XB1 version runs. Certain sounds like that guy talks about means jack shit to me. I don't know what a lot of these cars sound like irl, and I don't care. If the sound isn't off by some weird measure, it'll be fine. AI...eh, I don't play racing games often, but I don't see anything truly out of the ordinary. Anything he's shown has been worse than all the footage (a hell of a lot) I've seen that VVV has put out. It looks good enough and I hope it handles well enough on controller...XB1 controller. All I need to know otherwise is if there are bad frame drops or something. Kinda worried with the lack of XB1 anything.
Exactly, well said. Any ROI I will make has already been ploughed back in to multiple copies of the game (PC LE edition - want the book, and PS4 where my pals will soon to be going to race).
I love it, its as close to my perfect racing game that I have seen in literally years. I don't care if it gets a 1/10 meteoritic average that opinion won't change
It's the only game where I actually feel like I can disable the assists and eventually learn to keep the car under control, as well as understand why I did spin out (I remember trying the Formula 1 in rFactor 2 quite some time ago, and the damn thing would spin even with the slightest turn).
I reckon this isn't a very mainstream title, and as such it wouldn't surprise me, on the consoles at least, to be lower than 70, but I reckon there will be some segregation between the PS4 and XO versions so.
that's not to say that it deserves the scores, I reckon it could be widely misrepresented in the mainstream media.
Then again, tell me about driving games with good AI.
Not going to be able to watch much of the stream, I am hoping to hear some of you guys impressions of it from the stream.
I spent most of my time with this game doing MP. We're a clan that puts all its effort in doing clean races. We don't have not one single member without basic racing manners. yet we have to deal with all kinds of crashing reviews. Racing, by nature, is a bit crazy. People are used to F1, but racing is so much more in your face than F1 is. I'm all for clean racing, but having a perfectly clean AI is unrelastic.Honestly until you drive it you cannot underestimate how human the AI can feel during races.
