Forza Motorsport 5 assists comparison video

Concluding our Forza Motorsport 5 coverage, our latest Gamescom gameplay video sees Alan once again testing out the new physics engine with all the assists turned off in an Audi R18.

For this run, we thought we'd have a little comparison. Curious to see how novice players will experience Forza 5, Alan flicked off the assists expecting a softer, more superficial drive that compromises the physics in favour of accessibility like many other racers. Fortunately, it turns out Forza 5 is the exception, as the car dynamics don't seem to have been sacrificed. This was of course an early version of the game however, so whether or not this will still be the case in the final game remains to be seen.


Still want more ForzaMotorsport 5  We've got plenty of content from Gamescom, including a harrowing test drive with the McLaren P1 without assists and an extensive interview with Creative Director Dan Greenawalt.

I'll look forward to it and for once I'm not bothered wether its DLC or not because in terms of racing sims, Assetto Corsa is definitely more friendly on your pocket - free multiplayer etc. I hope that doesn't change when it leaves early access.

Its nice to see that they're not using lens flare, it really annoys me when its used in cockpit view because cockpit view is often for a more realistic driving experience yet it can be ruined by lens flare which is an effect only present on lenses (unsurprisingly). *ehem* Next Car Game *ehem*.

Yes this certainly has huge potential and mixing bikes with cars could be a good thing in terms of investment. Bike games have often been a mixed bag in terms of reception, so perhaps we'll see some bikes in GT7 and then if that works out, a full blown Tourist Trophy 2 further down the line.

I'm not going to get my hopes up because there have been too many rumors for far to long.  But after GT6 the only thing that would make me buy another GT title would be the addition of bikes (and a good selection of those at that).

In regards to Tourist Trophy, that game still holds up today.   Not perfect (bikes a tad to floatly) but over all it gave me the closest sense of how it feels to...

once upon time I use to buy multiple copies of Milestone titles (PS3, PC, Euro and US versions) but not anymore.   Why try to support a company that doesn't care about it's customers.  Can't say that MotoGP 14 was a disappointment because it was about as good as expected and that's not saying much.  Same issues as always......A LACK OF EFFORT. and as such after 4 laps I just put the game away....
