3D not “helpful” to DiRT 3, says Codemasters

Monday, 7th February 2011 12:31 GMT By Johnny Cullen

DiRT 3′s chief game deisgner Chris Coleman has said that 3D wouldn’t be “helpful” at all to the game.

Coleman compared D3 and its lack of 3D to a game which performs with the tech well enough, Motorstorm: Apocalypse.

“For us, with it being quite a horizon based racer, 3D isn’t as helpful as it would be in a game like MotorStorm where the environment’s changing around you, stuff’s falling down and you’re doing big drops. That feeling of depth is far greater,” he told EG.

“For us we’re always racing for that point at the centre of the screen. You end up in a 3D environment getting a bit of a tunnelled effect going on, and it can actually be quite nauseating if you’re doing hour or two-hour long playing sessions.”

Codemasters confirmed last week a worldwide May 24 launch for the game on PS3, 360 and PC.

    How about an hide user option for the comments system? Much like the the facebook system, all messages from that user would not display.

    @2 Third-ed. It doesn’t bother me like it does others, but still a feature like your suggesting would go a long way.

    I’m in the mind set of: if 3D isn’t very good for your game…then don’t add it. It goes along with things like multi player or RPG elements; if it’s not going to add to the game in any way, then don’t bother tacking a cheap version on the end just for the sake of it!

    No Codies…3D wouldn’t be helpful.

    But hiring some decent QA Testers would, lol.
