Forza Motorsport

Forza Motorsport, the 'competitor' to the Gran Turismo Series for Playstation 2 will be released in America in the next 2 hours. Will it live up to its hype? Who knows... we'd have to wait and find out.

This thread is just a reminder to our s-e-X-BOX'ers out here so go out and buy the game, I know I will. Maybe we can get screeners and videos here later.

Here's some early impressions from a real person (not some journalist whose job is going to be determined by his review). Seems pretty good.

Sounds like the only place where Forza is lacking, is in quantity of cars, and tracks. But really........who the hell has time to drive over 500 cars anyway? All you really need are some of your favorite names. No one needs every single specific variation of every single car.......

Not bad.. Best non-biased link I've seen to date.

I think 250 cars in GT4 consist of variation of the Skyline, RX-7, Civic/CRX, Evo series, and WRX series.

There is no point in that many variations!!!!!!!!!! Why?

Why not just let the players do the mods themselves? Instead of using it to boost the car number for bragging rights, why not just say "ok, only use the more spectacular kits from each company" (for example, instead of a different car for each Lingenfelter mod, just one that is the 427TT, and the multiple variations are not counted in the overall number.)

That's my biggest gripe (yes, even moreso than the no damage thing. I just don't hit walls and it's not an issue) with the GT series. It's not even the number of Skylines; it's that it's only the large variations of Japanese cars. I want a 396 Chevelle, 454 Chevelle, 426 and 440-6 Cuda, a Fox-body Mustang, a 428 CJ Mustang... And so on... Maybe a few Corvette trim options. Like a 67 with a 427 (best sounding car, evAr)... </rant>

If I had a X-box, I'd definitely get Forza. But I don't have one, and I don't see me spending $150 for a console for maybe 2-3 games total...

Just got back from picking up my copy of Forza Motorsports and having lunch with the wife. I got the first copy out of the box at 11:08 am. Off to play now, I'll be back later with initial impressions...

I've put in a little over 4 hours with the game now, managed to get up to "level 16" so far. This is by far the best driving sim on the xbox. It is my favorite driving game. period. Graphics, great. Gameplay, great. Features, great. It's just a GREAT game. well worth the money. If you like to drive and you've got an xbox, you need this game.

a more detailed review will follow this evening...

Gotta stop reading Forza threads. Makes me want to go out and buy a Xbox for this game alone... R32 that sounds like a R32, Corrado, online play, damage, real AI... Oi vey... *bangs head against wall repeatedly*
