    Thats so typical for Ian Bell to say something like this. I am 100% certain his Madbox will blow PS5 and Xbox SX out of the water, too.

    Yawn. Might pick it up on a big discount eventually, but I have very little interest in this compared to if they released PC3.

    Ehhhhhh a sim racer company making it? Sounds like a bad idea. Its kinda given that games based on movies are utter trash. The last FandF game was just garbage.

    Games with movie tie-ins tend to be rubbish and this will probably be no exception.

    I don't think their engine is made for this cinematic style racing game. Those face and animations are really outdated.

    I just don't get why the graphics look so dated. Project Cars 2 looked pretty amazing, what happened here?

    Looks like a very linear, NFS esq inspired mission based game. Character models look a bit naff...no sense of detail or emotion from them, expected better. Why do the graphics look so mediocre?

    According to PCGamer the game features 'approximations of Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesel'. That's one way to put it. :lol:

    If they did something like FNF PS2, since that game was actually good. Got that game on release at the time when I got TXR Drift 2. That game really focused on racing/customization. The graphics were not that bad either probably one of the better Eutechnyx games out there. It's a bit too early to tell, and hoping those models are not the final product because if it is then I got no hope for it. The car models look alright to me, but since we don't have our hands on the game it's too early to tell right now. Pretty sure FNF PS2 got the same flak back then.

    I hope every 10 year old in the world buys this and all revenue is spent on Project Cars Revolution.

    My expectations are somewhere between the Grand Tour game and recent NFSes (excluding Heat, because that is actually decent). Which is to say not much. Honestly SMS should just focus on PCARS but I guess now that they've been bought by Codemasters who knows if that will even continue in its current form.

    The main problem with these types of games though, is the extremely finite lifespan. Once you've done story mode, what else is there to do? The gameplay is probably extremely linear and once you've seen it, there's really no incentive to do it again. I mean it could be a free open world game like GTA, but I doubt it. I'd much rather F&F does tie-in DLC cars with PCARS like they did with Forza a while back. Leave the storytelling to the movies.

    It looks straight up bad.

    Though, I will probably dust of my PS3 once it’s offered free on PS+.

    By comparison to those two games initial trailers, the Fast and Furious game still looks really bad and dated:





    Those two games looks a little dated now but still doesn't look as bad as Fast and Furious Crossroads.

    I'm sure they would love a sequel to the F&F game but as I posted above, it's not a case of doing one or the other. They want (need) to do both. They started working on F&F while PC2 was in development and they started working on PC3 while F&F was in development. So F&F1 in 2020, PC3 in 2021, F&F2 in 2022. The big plus for Project Cars is its their IP. The problem with franchises like F&F is the licence can go to another studio.

    Rewatching the trailer over and over again made my head hurt. It really looks so bad, I think it started as a mobile game, for that it would look decent.

    Oh dear, and doesn't help SMS got bought by Codemasters. This game does not do well at all, and this might be SMS's final nail in the coffin. But judging by the dislikes, I think they are numbered.

    I don't think Codemaster will judge them on that game, it should be in production for 2 years now based on the first time Ian teased about it. Also Ian Bell is the executive director at Codemasters now and remain as CEO of SMS, don't think SMS will get killed that easily.

    This is a company that offered an olive branch to Rushy and Evolution, offered them the ability to make any game they wanted...then did absolutely no advertising for said game, didn't explain to the general racing game populace what the idea for said racing game was, let the game die, and then subsequently shuttered Evolution, arguably only to get a hold on Evolution's weather tech.

    Considering we are dealing with the modern Codemasters here, a company as craven and as unfeeling as people like to accuse EA of, it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility to have SMS' as a studio's future on the line over an F&F game.
