According to Gamer.tm, SEGA's latest PS3 exclusive Initial D: Extreme Stage which launched in Japan not only looks bad but also plays bad.
They note that the game looks like little more than a high-res PS2 title, and the game play sucks with "floaty handling and iffy collision detection aplenty."
To quote: Unfortunately, it seems that SEGA’s usual top form has deserted it on this occasion, as our exclusive screenshot gallery shows.
Although there are no obvious faults with the game’s graphics, it must be said that - between the flat textures, the lack of detail and the primitive special effects - there’s not a lot right with it, either.
Indeed, we’d go so far as to say it looks like little more than a high-res PS2 title.
Unfortunately, the gameplay doesn’t help much either, with ‘floaty’ handling and iffy collision detection aplenty. More PlayStation 3 News...
