  1. It's pretty much the same ole stuff that we already know. How about telling us something that we don't know. And why keep showing us footage of the same tracks, same easy level gameplay? Show us a harder level. Give us info on career mode other than we start off in the truck series.
    I'm sure it's on easy and the damage is turned off but that just looks too much like an arcade game.
    Definitely need to see more before I buy this. Maybe career mode will save it for me, but damage model has to be more realistic and need physics to punish for bouncing off of cars or the walls.
    Just my opinion.

    I really hope the cycling "Live results" they showed at the end of the split screen race isn't the only way they're going to be shown again as this was one of my major gripes with NHE. I want to be able to read the results at my own leisure, not have to rapidly skim through each page before it cycles to the next. Being visually impaired makes it even more difficult. The results need to include columns for finishing position, driver, interval, fastest lap, and laps led.
    The game still looks like 4 year old graphics to me. With great looking racing games like GT Sport, Project Cars, Dirt 4, Drive Club and so on , these guys really need to update the look of this game.
    You keep seeing a lot of the same stuff because the game is still in pre-alpha. When I played the game, the new damage model wasn't even implemented yet. It was created and refined, but still not in the newest build. They really should explain this stuff in these videos.

    Yeah, it's definitely on easy, or normal (whatever they called it last year) and not on the simulation driving model. The sim model in last years game you'd have a hard time controlling the car like that bumping off everyone and driving half on the banking, half on the apron without spinning out. Damage also appears to be off in this as well.
    My biggest gripe with the video is the AI seems to be like tanks again too, just stuck to the track. Again, could be the setting they're playing on, but I found the AI too stuck to the track compared to the player car in all modes last year.

    Exactly. I mean, it looks good, but it's nowhere near what it should. It's like the Golf Club 2 to me. Does it look good? Sure. Does it look like a 2017 XB1, PS4, or PC game should look? Absolutely not. That's disappointing, but I'm sure it's being held back by Unity or something. It's a shame really. The tech is there, and the power is there in the consoles, and of course on gaming PC's so I'd like to see it improved. If the frame rate on the consoles isn't better this year the whole thing will be a lost cause to me. It sure seemed like it struggled to even maintain 30 last year.
    I'd love to see a visual upgrade, but I just don't see it happening anytime soon given their resources and possibly the limitations of the engine and such.
    Really wish they'd shared information about specific features and improvements though, rather than just say we implemented fan feedback. Yeah... great, in regards to what though? Lots of time before release, I get it, I just thought they'd want to get that stuff out there early given how rough the first one went over initially.

    That's kinda where I'm at. I'm sure I'll end up buying this either way, but man, it's 2017. People should expect 60fps from a modern racing game.
    was it me, but why show a game where all they had to do was push the pedal down and steer to pass EVERY car on the track?
    I was really hoping to get a good NASCAR game finally...this only deflates those hopes.

    I'm not sure why they'd show it off that way either. However, if you didn't play the first one, I'd say you can rest assured that the game isn't simply floor it and drive by everyone without a problem. I mean, sure, you can set it that way, and play in the "casual" mode or whatever they called it last year where essentially all assists were on and you could just hold the gas down and go, and set the difficulty low enough that you'd fly by them too, but if you ran in simulation mode, with higher difficulty settings, it would have looked nothing like this video.
    Not sure why they chose to show it off this way, my guess is that with someone potentially playing the game who may not be good at it, or play it regularly the easy mode settings at least allow the video to come across as a racing game, as opposed to someone controlling the car that doesn't know how to drive smashing into everything. You aren't going to show off much that way. I think the easy settings just allow someone who likely doesn't, and won't play regularly still be able to show the game off in a video while conducting an interview.
