The visuals look a bit better here, though the sound appears to be ripped straight off of the early 2000's HEAT games. Here's hoping they shoot for 60FPS on last gen versions.
You're not the only one noticing the AI, also seems to be evenly spaced and on rails on road courses as well. I think the general hope is that even if the AI is terrible, the physics and driving are good and at least it ends up being really good for multiplayer.Really not liking what I'm seeing in that video, the #36 should have been finished but it barely moved. I know it's not the final product, but it's very reminiscent of the typical oval AI on ISI powered games (assists wouldn't effect AI vehicles). The weaving also seems odd, sure the cars aren't perfectly still in real life but if you were to weave like they are in the clip you would be hung out to dry.
I really am getting worried that this crow on my plate is going to go to waste.
My biggest worry in that regard is that the issues with the AI will transfer to online. The part in the below video where he's talking about NASCAR 09 (which runs on ISI) online looks eerily similar to the above NASCAR 21 clip.I think the general hope is that even if the AI is terrible, the physics and driving are good and at least it ends up being really good for multiplayer.
WRC10 = PAINIt's become way to easy to be very pessimistic about upcoming games. Sadly, devs seem to keep proving the naysayers right. And I have to say, I'm a bit tired of paying top dollar for product that's bugged, incomplete, just plain broken or even just nowhere near as advertised. Sick of paying $100 to beta test garbage in the hopes it gets improved. How 'bout we just wait until they fix it and buy it on discount later instead?
