Default Will you be buying Project C.A.R.S for Wii U? - Cancelled


I have been thinking if I should support this title or not because I've been more discontent than satisfied when it comes to 3rd party titles on the Wii U though since it's a promising driving game plus from Bandai Namco, it could very well be a fantastic multiplatform title on the Wii U.

My problems with it are the following:

1) How will I be able to control the cars since the Wii U only handles digital triggers?

2) Will there be any exclusive Nintendo-themed cars? Or just normal content like it is on the other platforms?

3) Will the online play work properly and have voice chat?

And so on.

These are questions I'd like to have answered but Bandai Namco nor the devs seem to answer them so it's hard to make a firm decision whether I should pre-order it or not. I just don't want to get burned again.

The sticks are analog right? I find myself using those more than triggers for racers lately. Up is gas, down is brake on the right stick.

That works really well for the GT series.

I may. I try to support the good 3rd party Wii U games as much as I can.

Maybe buy I'll buy it for both the PC and the WII U.

True.

I tried it on Mario Kart 8 and it works but I prefer pressing A instead as the right analogue stick isn't really ideal for a racing game that's about strategy (look around + behind) and luck.

Even Xbox One runs it poorly at 900p/60fps (it's not locked but still better than 30fps) and the visuals look pretty bad at times.
