    Graphics look OK to me. Not Driveclub level, but passable.

    The physics on the other hand :yuck: I hope they're using aids or it's just a bad driver, but the car looks like it has too much grip. No feeling of suspension travel or weight shifting either. Guess I'll stick to Dirt Rally for now.

    I'm going to hold off my judgement since it's still only "pre-alpha".

    Isn't it weird for a game to still be pre-alpha this close to release?

    Milestone seem to do this regularly, not entirely sure if the previous games were pre-alpha until late in the day, but that's certainly the impression I get. Alan also mentioned that the physics is still not in there yet.

    Sounds big and it's great that they are using the real rally stages this time. That photomode seems comprehensive too, which of course I like and we'll be getting a broader time frame to run the stages in, from actual dawn to sunset instead of early morning to late afternoon.

    I think it's rather the other way around. Codemasters had become concerned about Milestone, but I'm sure Milestone will now be focusing further now that Dirt Rally will get a PS4 release.

    They've turned out two great rallying titles so far, so I have full faith that it'll end up being just great too.

    What does the WRC series have to do with this game?

    Nothing except the developers.

    Milestone developed the WRC series. Although WRC5 is now developed by another developer (Kylotonn), it's looking like heading in a more arcade direction. SLRE is looking to continue the simcade direction of WRC1-4, hence this game is more like a "spiritual" successor to the WRC series than WRC5 itself.

    I also find it weird that Loeb's name is used in a widespread off road game (rally, hillclimb, rallyX). I know that he's participated in Pikes Peak and some rallyX as well, but he's mostly associated with WRC.

    That's a very weird way of holding the steering wheel.

    Ahhh finally a gameplay video :tup: Graphics look gorgeous as expected :drool: Physics looks like a solid simcade type. I might get this further down the line, after I've got enough of Dirt Rally first.

    Jean Alesi used to do that in F1, it actually gives you stronger control through corners like hairpins, I've tried it, personally just doesn't feel natural, but some drivers like it. It's all personal preference really isn't it

    60 cars? That rekindles my interest a little.

    I think youtube is partly to blame for that. I'm sure it'll look better on your screen.

    Honestly the lighting is OK in my view. But the textures and polycount lets it down (look at the snow bank above, it's basically early PS3 level :crazy:). Average graphics would be fine if the driving is good, but unfortunately it's not. So I don't see anyone except the most ardent rally fans buying this.

    I like the lighting in those vids and what appears to be softer snow banks than those previously encountered in a Milestone game. Still quite interested in this and I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun with it.

    Physics look absolutely horrendous, anyone who wants to play a rally game just get Dirt Rally.

    That's only an option at present if you have a PC.

    Ah yeah I forgot about that, no doubt they will release it for consoles at some point. Otherwise it's a good reason to get a PC :)

    Yeah, I think the current prognosis is early next year. Personally, I can't be bothered with a gaming PC as it seems like a lot of hassle, plus I can't get full time work anymore (too old), so can't really afford to even build one - so I'll wait. in the meantime, I have this game to keep me happy.
