The crazy thing is, this does not look like a generational leap, even with mainly replay footage. Where is the in-game footage, no one is asking for this, it's been years, what has turn 10 been doing? GT7 released almost a year ago, has released so much additional content and updates, they are about to release their VR version and Forza is still in limbo for a launch. They say it's a reboot, well some fans anyway, do you see anything so different about this one. What makes it a reboot, that they finally have Dynamic TOD , late 13 years to the party, that they accumulate dust under the wheel alcoves and crevices of cars?
Even in this footage, I see a plume of dust even before the car gets there, lots of fake stuff, cars still don't interact with the surface properly, the dust and gravel disturbance by tires/cars is still worse than GT5, farless Sport or 7. I'm watching a car go over a gravel bed with very little interaction, save some light dust, why? because from the angle or isometric view, the gravel bed looks like a flat texture. This game has been in dev too long for us to see nothing and where we can still pinpoint the same teething visual problems Forza. Why aren't the fans demanding some real gameplay footage. Had this been GT we would get several people asking for Kaz's head, even in the media, it's been over 5 years, no concrete date, the media got nothing but more replay footage and they're saying, it looks fine, it looks awesome even if they haven't seen a thing.
