Yeah, it's got both cosmetic and mechanical damage, but it is on the soft side - especially the cosmetic damage - as this comparison with BeamNG.drive shows...

So, is this really going to be better the Gran Turismo and Forza?  

 

(maybe too early to ask , but people have being playing beta, no?

In terms of gameplay, I think it already runs rings around both of them (especially Forza). It's not the best all-around, though; Assetto Corsa has better physics, for example. Graphics-wise, it's usually compared with Driveclub, and it's close there, but I think pCARS still comes out on top (provided it's dry; Driveclub's rain effects are pretty amazing).

Gameplay, Forza runs rings around this game (not to mention, RacePro does as well). Not even sure GT is a contender anymore though. Sadly, the SHIFT physics in this game is dramatically holding it back. But I haven't played the latest available builds, so hopefully they have gone back to the drawing board there.

 

Oh, and DELAYED AGAIN.

I think I'm being overly cynical here but... if the content is there to be given... why isn't that content just already part of the game anyway? 

 

This is just another game in a long list I'm slowly becoming less interested in because of the never ending delays. I'd rather have a more complete, working game released day one, but there is a few games that I was hyped for around launch of the XB1. A year and a bit on, I've just gone a bit meh on this and others :(

I know, I hate it too. Worst case scenario, it's probably just one of the pieces of content they offered up with the limited edition; probably the Modified Car Pack.

Funding it through WMD means I'm getting the limited edition content for free, anyway (as well as hopefully a decent "share of the game's sales returns", provided it sells well), so if they offer up something new instead, then bonus.

This game looks interesting but I was disappointed to learn about AMD cards getting very poor performance. A GeForce GTX 770 should never outperform a Radeon R9 290X. Those cards aren't even in the same performance category.

Yeah, that's AMD's fault for not contacting SMS as often as NVIDIA did. They are on the case now, at least, so things should improve soon. Ian Bell addressed it all...
