Engine sound comparisons

How realistic are the engine sounds in MW? Watch this cool video by EA:

They ask if you can hear a difference, but the only difference was the game Carrera seemed a little bit higher in pitch, but it was cool. The sound made my knees buckle.

The RX8 has my favourite sound!
It's pure Formula 1!

Whats up with the sound of the caddy it sounds like a import. Its got a dang north star v8 in it. I like the sound of the viper.

well i remember reading something about the caddy, i think they said something about a Base model, meaning its not the CTS-V, did this so called base model not get a V8??

I don't like the CTS, looks just like any other normal family car....

da wizz, check out cadillacs' site and you'll notice it's not a straight v8:

Engine Type
2.8L V6 VVT
3.6L V6 VVT
Horsepower/Torque
2.8L: 210 hp @ 6,500 rpm/194 lb.-ft. at 3,300 rpm
3.6L: 255 hp @ 6,200 rpm/252 lb.-ft. at 3,100 rpm

cheers

bit in depth, but im sure u all know that different settings on cars (mods, exhaust) change the sound of the engine, but i think the team have done a decent job with this game.

No, no CTS is available with the Northstar. It's either one of the two afformentioned V6's, or the LS6 V8 out of the previous generation Corvette Z06 (in the CTS-V).

I knew that the ea staff wouldn't have put a v6 sound with a v8 car. Thanks for explaining.:)
