    Redefining the Modern Racing Game
    "Forza Motorsport's" appreciation of the automobile is due in large part to the team's attention to detail.

    That 'communitiy-vid' thing is just pre-rendered right? Not the actual output from in-game driving put through the in-game vid editor?

    Still, looks beautiful.

    Didn't at least 2 people say I'd just beaten them to it?

    I did that because I was excited.

    This is clearly the much better thread to talk about Forza.

    If anyone's interested about the game here: You can get a Forza 3 themed Audi for Forza 2 over at forzamotorsport.net by simply posting a comment while being logged in.

    I don't see why not. It looks no better than GRID or GT5P. Although the actual driving in the vid makes me wonder if it was a heavily choreographed AI performance because it would take one hell of an effort for human players to put together a sequence like that.

    It did look very, very cool. I love the community element I just wish the game was on par with GT.

    GT + Forza community/custom stuff = cool.

    So you want them to take the opposition AI out then? Should be easy enough.

    Holy wow.

    Was that Spain in the gameplay footage? It was jaw-dropping.

    I've seen the trailer in HD, and I can't believe they are doing this at 60fps.
    Must be some kind of rendering just for the movie mode.

    Replay modes frequently add extra graphical bling, because they don't have to do AI and physics and shit.

    GT5 Prologue did nothing more for me than make me want to go back to Forza 2. I'd never played a GT game before I played GTHD and GT5P and I wasn't really impressed. The graphics are decent but you can clearly see the corners they cut, and the gameplay was utterly sterile. I wan't to feel like i'm racing more than just BMW M5 for a rough example. Bouncing off or using walls to help lap times has no place in a racing sim.

    I'd much rather they put GT on par with Forza than the other way round.

    I used to think GT5 Prologue looked 'alright' but not much better than Forza 2. I used to think that prior to downloading the Forza 2 demo to compare the two...

    It surprised me just how naff Forza 2 looks next to GT5 Prologue.

    Saying that. Forza 2 'feels' better than GT5 Prologue so maybe there's more physics and whatnot going on under the hood.

    I just read the press release at the start of this thread and I am more excited about this than any other game this year. I consider the first two Forza’s as coming close to GT overall, exceeding it in some areas (handling, damage, AI) but lacking in others (track variety, graphics), but this is looking like it could be a GT beater (apart from lack of Logitech support)

    But I have one worry, are the 100 tracks just different variations of the same few tracks we saw last time. I think Forza 2 claimed to have about 40-50 tracks but in reality it only had about 10, and of those 10 a couple of them were crap any way (Speed way, New York, what is it with Americans and their aversion to corners?). The lack of tracks really killed Forza2 for me.

    But for Forza 3, the screenshots look beautiful though (regardless 60fps is the most important thing), the career mode sounds like an improvement over Forza 2’s rather dull career, it sounds like point to point racing has returned and you can now roll cars.

    We know the handling model will be good, so I just hope there are more tracks, track varieties, improved AI, night races and variable weather conditions. (shiny graphics are a bonus but not the most important thing and hardly register when I’m actually playing any way)

    I have to say, after those screenshots the gameplay stuff on gametrailers doesn't look particularly special. I think he might have been exagerating just a little bit...

    I can't say that I'm that excited, the same way I wasn't fussy about Gran Turismo 2 - I like the current one lots, but where can you really go? More cars and tracks and other little tweaks I suppose. I'll still have it probably though.
