Japan sucks, everyone is always talking about Japan, who fucking cares....

their games generally suck..

Japanimation sucks..

Obviously their choice of games fucking blows...
WHO CARES ABOUT JAPAN...

blink.gif You mean because they don't make millions of WWII FPS and Sci-fi FPS(with the same over used objects) and FPS and more FPS....................yup their games must suck.

Take a poll from around the globe, have people name their favorite game of all time, I bet the majority will name a game from a Japanese developer.................

While theres nothing revolutionary about RR6, its much better than PGR3 in terms of gameplay, and theres way more to do. Lots of tracks, and cars to unlock. I enjoy it quite a bit, probably gets the most play at on my 360.

All honesty, I didn't even know RR6 was a launch title in the US. I thought it wasn't coming out till the end of December.

Oh well, from what I'm hearing, I'm not missing much.

dude i bought RR6 because the way the had the videos for it were tight as hell but when i started playing it i was like wtf!!?!?!? this game is sooo damn gay and it's doesn't' have many tracks they just make u do them over and over again except for maybe going backwards. the japansese used to be good game makers but now there just starting to suck ass seriously who cares about them! also one of the most laggy games i've ever played, it lags every single damn time! and all my other online games are perfect ike 98% of the time. i damn near cried because i got it from compusa and i know im not gonna be able to return it!! sad.gif not even little kids should get it and it is true japanese people are proving there stubborness by only buying japanese crap no matter HOW crappy it is. and the us people who did buy it were fooled by there damn ads!

I'd have to agree with the poster that said RR6 isn't a bad game, it just had to compete with the likes of PGR3 and NFS... two high profile franchises here in the states. It's like being the last kid picked at dodgeball. You might be good, but nobody knows it. I just hope Namco doesn't take it personally and ditches the 360 when they think about bringing Soul Caliber and company to the next gen.

One question to those who have played RR6 (as I have not). I love Burnout through and through. I hate Forza and Gran Turismo. THEY BORE ME. Given those facts, would RR6 be up my alley? I've been trying like hell to rent it, but it's always checked out. And God forbid they put the demo on the Marketplace... dry.gif How close to Burnout's gameplay is it?

I love the game. I think it's a blast. I think the gameplay is more similar to Burnout than the ones you mentioned. I hated this game at first. The next day as I was about to return it, I gave it another go. It blew me away. The controls are extremely "arcadey", much like Burnout. I'm glad I decided to try it a second time. There's no way I'm letting this game out of my collection now. I don't want to tell you to run out and buy it if you can't rent it, but you'd be doing yourself a terrible disservice if you didn't find some way to try it out at least. Just play it with an open mind. The learning curve is small. Once you start doing really good, tons of other routes and tracks open up. There is a small selection of tracks like someone mentioned, but once I got into it, it didn't bother me.

I only liked PGR3 slightly more than RR6. I didn't care for NFS: MW. I thought that was a pretty unfun game.

So, yeah, I think RR6 would be up your alley. wink.gif

Well, if you don't like Forza and GT then you won't like PGR3, because all 3 are considered the SIM type where racing is realistic. As in, you better slow down before you hit that turn because they would in real life.

I haven't played RR, and I just picked up NFS and haven't played it yet. I have played the NFS demo though and that's why I picked it up. I've heard some bad things about the game(lackluster graphics, choppy, repetitive) so since I haven't played it and can't comment on those I'm not going to tell you to buy. However, after playing the demo I think it's the closest thing to Burnout on the 360 right now. PGR3 is a Sim racer, RR though arcadey is still just racing as I've seen it, but NFS is arcadey in its controls and destructive like Burnout. You can crash into street lamps, gas stations, take out cars in your way(they slow you down, but not dead stop like Burnout 3). I thought the graphics were good, the controls are arcadey, and overall I had fun playing the demo. I like PGR3 for accomplishing something, but NFS was fun. I liked that it was a free roaming environment almost like a GTA on the highway. When doing the challengs like evading police you aren't just doing laps over and over again. You're on the highway and you see an exit to the right, take it; come up to an intersection choose any direction. You can go through parking garages, through parks, golf courses, etc.

I'm guessing you might have played the demo already being that you were looking for RR demo on the marketplace, but I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in anyway.

GT will and will always will be the best racing game series ive ever played and i dont even own a PS anymore and never owned a PS2 yet its the best racing sim i ever controlled, i hope M$ will bring it to the 360 just as Tomb Raider as this is a first for xbox, i am waiting very impatiently for TR, 7 versions on PS/PS2 and finally one for xbox

Thanks for the tips guys. I have NFSMW and I really enjoyed it. It was really fun running from the cops. Not as fun as Burnout, but still good... despite the framerates. So I guess the consensus is, if I like Burnout and NFSMW, then RR6 is my kinda game. Cool. I'll have to grab a copy.

I asked Major Nelson about a demo on XBL... but he's busy and probably doesn't care about a game that only sold 9000 copies. blink.gif

Alpine is Japanese yet...

Also Gran Torismo will never be on Xbox.... it's Made by Polyphony Digital which is owned by Sony, You have about as much chance of seeing GT5 on Xbox360 as seeing Halo3 on the PS3

Never doubt the almight dollar. wink.gif

If MS thought they could squeeze a a few million dollars out of the Halo franchise by putting Halo1 on the PS3, I bet they would. Not Halo 2 or 3 mind you... those are exclusives (for now). But I imagine Sony would jump at the opportunity to have the first one on PS3.

Then all the boxes with "Only for Xbox" would become collectors items. laugh.gif
