Ultra-realistic physics

I'm amazed at games with such realistic physics like Virtual Pool and Papyrus Indycar Racing. Anyone else know of any other game(s) that have real lifelike physics?

Hmmm... wasn't it that new Tomb Raider game that had ultra-real rendering of the effect of gravity on disperportionate areas of fat and connective tissue concentration on the human body? ;) (Maybe I'm thinking of another one)

Really? Do you know where I can get a playable demo (I tried Eidos but couldn't find one)?

And no, I'm not playing this game for softcore porn. I just want to test the physics.

There is absolutely no porn in the TR series, as the games are only rated T? Actually, I've never played them, just didn't appeal to me.

Anyhow, I don't know if there's a demo, but you could get a trailer <html><a href=>here</a></html>.

I heard there's a cheat code to make Lara naked.

A mod maybe? Even as a cheat code it strictly wouldn't be allowed in a T-rated game.

yeah, i got the nude raider patch for the original tomb raider.

and if you want physics, try ut2003 or ut2004. or HL2 when it comes out (until then, play the leaked beta)

Or Porrasturvat. I've never pushed someone down the stairs before, but I figure it's pretty accurate.

UT2004 is your best bet. Nothing like blowing a car up and sending the car and the person flying. The person with Ragdoll physics.

Yeah, UT2k4 WAS impressive. I still prefer UT, but 2004's physics were AMAZING. Just to show where the programmers really focused. :thumbsup:

yeah..but I dont know why people focus still on UT99. UT2003 far as im concerned UT2004 is now UT99 with better physics and now better graphics. And more gamemodes. Its awesome.

Well, my biggest complaint about Ut2k4 is the rocket launcher. But, yeah, it does feel more UT-like, and it may warrant me buying the full version. I've only tried the demo, though I must say that I didn't like the Onslaught mode very much. It was too... Big.

Full Version is a lot better. Assualt levels are awesome..And onslaught has some good maps. There is a small island one with water and island is really nice. Almost relaxing..until you get killed :laugh:

I have to say, though, the graphics were beautiful. And my compy ran the demo's standard graphics with no problems at all, and it's not top-of-the-line, either. Now, let's compare UT2k4 to halo's graphics and system-guzzling reasource taking. Hmm, wonder which one I'd get.

Halo's graphics are 4 years old.

Yeah, but I mean, the way they run on PC. To make it look half-decent you need a friggin' fast computer. UT2k4 runs much easier and looks 10x better.

exactly. The people at Bungie can't code. The port was horrid. Even on top of the line computers it didnt even manage 30 fps..of course the patches helped some.

people at bungie coded the best games for the apple Eg: Marathon and myth.. I dont care about the graphics its the actual quality of the game

The problem with Halo is that you even middle-to-higher computers can't run it without such a low quality that it's not worth playing.
