Firemint Real Racing - Looks better than NFS? (Poll)



Take a look at this video of a pre-beta build and you'll see why i'm so excited. IMHO the visuals surpass that of NFS.

They finally decided to self-publish for the iPhone.

EDIT:

See another video below:

I dunno, but we see more vehicles on screen at the same time than we've seen in any of the NFS vids (i might be wrong, though). Also the in-car view has to be appreciated!

Pocketgamer did say it had better visuals than had been seen before on any iPhone racing game...

Again, no sense of speed. Look at how slow they're going!
I'm sticking to fastlane.

I can't really compare the graphics to NFS because the video is so blurry...although I do like the look of the in car view.

Yeah the Youtube quality is just too low to be able to tell if its better or not graphically to NFS. Get Youtube HD please!

I think NFS looks better (faster).
The in-car view looks good thow.
I hope NFS will have one.

Better than NFS?

Note: in the new (top) video in the first post, they have moved the camera view and pause icons to the top and the accelerate icon is now at the left bottom. The brake appears to pop up when you tap the bottom left.
