Phoenix3D 360° photo-realistic pre render game engine

Dracula The Resurrection

I did made a list of Most well known game engines here I did forgot to post one of the best old realistic game engines Phoenix3D Phoenix VR middleware, developed by 4X Technologies S.A, for 360° photo-realistic pre render click and point adventure games. Some of the best Dracula games whas made by this. You can buy the old Dracula games at GOG at reduced pries now. The company that made that engine is no longer around and closed maybe this can give some ideas for new game developers.

TML-Studios DevDiary10 Fernbus Coach Simulator

The German developer TML-Studios has made a video for their upcoming Bus sim game DevDiary10 - Fernbus Coach Simulator here. It has English Subs and they show the gameplay and test some Logitech Racing Wheel. The Release date is unknown must be coming under 2016. TML-Studios have done many Bus games and their new Fernbus game looks very good and runs smooth and road textures is done right with some variety.

"This video was recorded using a BETA version of the game, which is NOT FINAL, and does not resemble the final product! 18min." 

I have tested many bus games and have been disappointed not many of them are done right.
Recent Bus Simulator 16 Steam has done great job and the old game New York Bus Simulator Steam by TML-Studios are only 2 good bus games right now. OMSI  bus game is good too but the game engine they use is bad it lags shutters. OMSI is only bus game that has perfect engine sound.

Forza Apex Beta

Forza Motorsport 6 Apex

I've test Forza Motorsport 6 Apex (Beta) that is build exclusive for Windows 10 and requires Directx12 is developed by Turn 10 Studio. Anyone can download it free from Windows10 Store App. It's around 18GB and it toke me 1hr to download. Microsoft need to improve the app store it's clumsy and slow for download large games.

The game have excellent realistic graphic i had only some blur (v-sync) problem i use Gefore 960 and the game auto detects graphic setting and it did set to medium for me and it has dynamic render setting. You can play the game with keyboard or a controller i recommend XboxOne controller.

I have tested the game it runs ok and i had only freeze at loading it happen some times and not any crash yet while driving. Many of the cars are locked you have to pay with real money or play tour to unlock. This may be the down side of a free game all the content may not be there and you have to pay for the rest. All cars have own dash interior view. The game have many difficulty setting you can turn off brake and steering assist. Car handling feels very good! and done well and the sound from engine is ok. Update:  After i updated to new Nvidia Driver 365.10 the game now run much better more smooth and no frame drops or lag on medium render.(Only bug right now is some times it freeze at loading must restart and exit with Alt+F4)

Here is a screenshot of Main Menu: (To take screenshot with xboxapp key is Win+Alt+PrtSc)
Main Menu

Also the game have a showroom for viewing cars called ForzaVista in main menu you can take pictures of you cars (In showroom you can open all doors, turn on headlight,  look inside engine, and go in the car seat and listen to audio commentary, etc.)
