I just got a few hours ago...

Oh my God, this game is freakin sweet! For starters, they let you transfer some of your licenses and money from 3 so you don't have to start from the beginning. The first car I bought was the GNX. The only Caddy is the Cien :(. Hopefully there are some you can unlock. There are so many cool features I can't begin to list them, actually I haven't even found most of them yet. I played the New York track and it is insanely accurate, right down to the billboards in Times Square (They even got that huge CTS billboard in there).

Well, I gotta get back to the game now, I can't wait for other people to start checking in.

ya know i was at the store today and i thought about buying it. i picked it up and looked at it and it looks like a good game but it doesnt look to have anything on Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition so i didnt buy it. MC3 was supposed to hit stores way back in mid January (according to the sign) and i went to buy it. i found out that it got pushed back to mid April. sucks but oh well, good things come to those who wait.

I'm not sure whether to get it or not. I have GT 3, and i've found that Sim racing just isn't my cup of tea. I'd rather be playing an arcade racer like Burnout 3 or Midnight Club 3... However, GT 4 looks like its gonna be super sweet with tons of good AMERICAN cars, so i might just pick it up.

I have similar feelings. I have all the Gt's but this time Im just gonna wait it out until it hits the 19.99 sale. I hope. I think I can hold out. Im waiting for Dub City.

I have it. Running a 91 Silvia S13 (Think 200SX) as my first car. Deviated from my beloved Miata. Running it, only slightly tweaked against some bigger stuff. SL500, 300C, Crossfire, Z4.... Being outrun on straights, but more aggressive in the turns, so I'm still squeaking out wins.

Too soon for cheats I take it? Do they list which musclecars they offer?

Graphics significantly better?

I couldn't get mine to fish out my GT3 ones, so I started from scratch. Trying a new starter car, instead of my classic Miata.

Stoney, |I want to know about the graphics and how it looks. Is it much better than GT3, or pretty much the same. Is the motion smooth or are there slowdowns, etc?

It's well worth the investment Jeff.

The graphics are slightly improved, I don't think they could do much better than 3.

As for my GNX, I did some modifying and took it to the strip. The best ET I turned was a 13.105. I gotta get into the 12s!!

02-23-05, 11:04 PM
the game is heads and tails beatter than gt3 ...i am a very happy little boy .....

Started out with a 04 GTO , had a blower and it and everything else 75k and a goat will get you ....decided that wont work the way i want ...going back , gonna try a vette or something with beatter handleing out fo the box ...but with a twist ...an american car only ....GM only ...

Under the High Speed testing, on the right side.

Right now, I'm winning my 3rd endurance race for 150k. With a 70 Chevelle SS 454. :) It's the 1000 mile race under the European races section. Nothing newer than 1970. The Chevelle is a monster next to everything else. Little Benz SL 300 (The gull wing) a 66 Honda S800, an Alfa Romeo... They're all tiny next to my Chevelle. And its 487 horses are having a field day. I can't wait to supercharge it. (Yes, they put in the s/c.) My trained driver is getting to be excellent.

I NEED this game!! That's something stupid about all the previous GT games, namely, what happened to the "increase displacement" selection?! They had it but you could never use it! Other things were missing also.

I hope it's big.

Oh... My... Word... Nurbergring is insane. High speed, constant elevation changes, sharp little turns, its, its... Ok, I only had to do 1 lap, and I'm now tired from the number of shifts and turns. My E55 AMG is sweating from all the work. And it's tweaked too.

MrSmith
02-24-05, 05:42 PM
I said Im not going to get it yet so stop trying to convince me with all tha fun ya'll are having!!!



But tell me this, Is there still those 50 lap endurance races? I hate those races. and I saw some say something about the license being transfered from GT3. Is it true? The only cheats I use for GT is the license cheat to get the GOLD because you get special cars if you get the gold I think.

There are endurance races. But, if you train your computer driver well, and put a decent car under him, he'll win them for you. Just tell him to pit every so often.

I use to use a cheat that reduced the long laps to just a few or 1 or 2. I only did that because I couldnt get the car if I didnt win the race. I just hate those endurance races.

I wonder if you have to unlock them?? There seems to be always something in evert GT game that they have but you cannot use, like the engine displacement option on previous versions.

Stoneage_Caddy
02-26-05, 06:11 PM
no i got to use them in one race ...out of i dunno how many races ...i think the game is set up so you only get to use racing tires whenever the game is useing racing tires...its so damned hard to keep up in the corners ...

5 second penalitys are a pain in my ass too ....one rally event the other car hit me and i got the penality ...the other car got the win ...
