Screenshot from upcoming Colin McRae 3!

This looks like it's a replay but as you can see, it's very visually impressive. I can't get over how good those trees look....

computer graphics are at a stage where you don't need to worry about how good the graphics will be, we know they will be excellent. All that matters now is gameplay, and the colin mcRae series were always good in that department. Can't wait....

damn bugger i bet the requirements are like 450 celeron or pentium 2 and 32meg video card. Not sure how my 16 meg bansee and 350 celeron with only 64meg would handle it.

To put it bluntly, it won't. The minimum specs they say required these days are BS. To run the latest games in all their glory, atleast 128MB Ram, CPU will need to be getting close to 1GHz, and 32MB graphics card minimum.

yeah, try running the game on those "minimum requirement" and you'll probably end up with resolution you had on the original NFS, 8 bit sound and 12 frames per second!
