DF Interviews Playground Games; Find out why Forza is "best-in-class."

This topic is locked from further discussion.

[QUOTE="kuraimen"][QUOTE="jessejay420"][QUOTE="delta3074"]NOT according to DF "The overall look and feel of the game is almost untouchable, with an extremely high standard of production values applied to almost every visual element - everything meshes together beautifully, making for a best-in-class presentation." You understand what UNTOUCHABLE and BEST IN CLASS actually mean right? "Somehow, Horizon manages to maintain its exceptional standards with a level of consistency we rarely see in modern gaming."

Pwning Kuraimen never gets old :lol:

DF can say a lot but the games with more graphics awards this gen are PS3 exclusives. Besides Eurogamer fired the guy who exposed corruption on one of their reviewers so I don't trust them now.

Digital foundry =/= Eurogamer,lol

[QUOTE="kuraimen"][QUOTE="sts106mat"][QUOTE="kuraimen"] We're talking about arcade racers don't we? and that game you're laughing at has a better metascore than Flopza Horizon.

forza has 10% more reviews than wipeout, so as always using metacritic to say X is better than Y = stupid.

Using GS is even more so...

it makes a much sense as as if i said "well Forza H has 2 perfect review scores, whilst Wipeout only has 1, so Forza is the better game"

Well with GS you're saying "this reviewer's opinion determines the overall quality of the game in comparison to this other reviewers opinion who determines the other games quality". At least with Metacritic you get an average of many opinions.

With Metacritic you take those two reviews for Forza sum them up and divide them by two. That's how averages work.

So, Perfect Dark > Killzone 3 since Wipeout HD > Forza Horizon. :O In fact, let's throw Uncharted 3 in there to boot since it'd a shooter as well, although not a FPS but still one none the less and comparable. Perfect Dark has crisp 1080p and 60FPS--poor Killzone and Uncharted with their pitiful 30fps, and 720p. :[

You're not even in the same ballpark there, not even in the parking lot, in fact, you're outside of town across the country. That's how large of a sidestep that was.

#364 Posted by Jonwh18 (9350 posts) -

Thinking back on how great perfominf Perfect Dark Zero was it really makes me with it had stayed closer to the Perfect Dark formula. THere was just something different about the multiplayer nd I can't quite put my finger on it. Lack of insanse number of weapons and mods maybe?

What's there to argue, you've already showcased that Perfect Dark is superior to Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3 just like Wipeout HD is superior to Forza Horizon. :?

Why does that matter? Did Wipeout HD win countless awards? Not that it matters though, because it was still superior to Forza Horizon much like Perfect Dark is superior to Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3. :]

yeah the flopza that met hype and beat GT5 score wise yet again is the flop...please continue with this idiotic ideology.

This games an optimized and well designed beast in the graphical department, how its holding 30FPS and keeping up these levels of visuals is insane.

No it only got countless nods in reviews. Which is a shame. A much better looking game then Killzone or Uncharted. It was also was a better overall game in general. Alas gaameing journalism, no $$$ = score, not awards, and no GOTY.

Why would I? Perfect Dark is not even in the same ballpark in Metacritic. At least Wipeout HD is above Horizon.

Me & friends found the on-line in 2005-2006 to be truly addictive and quite well done with what was it, 32 players on-line? :shock:

We even had a hard time moving off of PDZ to playing Gears on-line but TBH, once we did, it was Gears all the way. :P

Game Score=/= Games graphical prowess, you cannot say a game looks better than another because of scores, also, there hasn't been any awards ceremonys yet so i would keep your mouth shut because i have a feeling Forza horizon will win a few technical graphics awards, At this time it's easily the most technically advanced game this year, i doubt we will see another console game that runs FXAA and 4xMSAA in tandem.

Stop hammering a dead horse, BEST IN CLASS means exactly what it says, Wipeout HD looking better than Forza Horizon=Subjective, Forza Horizon being more technically advanced than Wipout HD= Fact, try to spin it anyway you want it, the experts at digital foundry have spoken, you cannot prove any bias on there part so do yourself a favour, stop tyring to fight Objective facts with subjective opinion, it doesn't work,lol IF thats the best argument you can come up with ten thats really sad, you have failed to showcase any areas where wipeout HD is superior to Forza horizon in the technicalgraphics department

Exactly, which is why those awards for Uncharted and Killzone do not compare to Perfect Dark still.

I tired the demo over the weekend and I liked it. The Rivals thing is pretty cool and it felt satisfying to beat one of those races. I felt the steering was a little touchy, no matter what car I took, so I used assisted steering, but i bet I could wean myself off of that if I played it enough. The music is pretty bad, but I'm guessing you can turn that off?

Arcade racer, no thanks.

Z-Fatalis

Considering your sig, 0/10 trolling attempt. Keep practicing, though, you'll get better.

What does that have anything to do with LBP Karting?

Arcade racers are not my thing.

Sim racers are.

Fun racing games that don't take themselves too seriously like Mario Kart, LBP Karting and Crash racing are.

I'm actually far from trolling.

you make no sense :?

Yeah but it's not on the PS3 so they'd like to live in denial that a 360 game could possibly be better looking than any of the PS3's games.

Actually, Forza Horizon is still a sim racer with assists to make it feel more arcade-like.

Turn off all the assists and it's just as realistic as Forza 4 (which is to say the most realistic sim on a console).
