A lot of times there are promotional videos for upcoming games that showcase deceptive content and what's generally known as trade-show-downgrades-waiting-to-happen. Well, in one rare case we actually get to see some live gameplay footage for one of the most highly anticipated racing games due out this fall for home consoles. I'm talking about some unedited, non-promotional footage of Project CARS.
Youtube channel Indie Sim Racing managed to get some hands-on time with the game in a private, closed-door session with the game.
Continually, praise is expressed for the game and how it runs, how the graphics look and how the cars handle. He notes that the game was really hard to handle using a DualShock 4 without any assists on. I was actually quite impressed with how well the game handled even though it was with a controller.
The performance of Project CARS on the PS4 looked really good. Slightly Mad Studios is aiming for a consistent 1080p at 60 frames per second spec for both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. However, you could still tell that there were a few graphical sacrifices made to accommodate Sony's fourth-generation home console, such as the reflection resolution in the cars. If you look closely you'll see that unlike the PC version, there are lower resolution reflections passing by on the surface of the cars. It's not a terrible thing, but it is a noticeable one.
