    Does anyone know when this goes up for lowly Silver users? It used to be a week after Gold, but that'd make it just now and it's not there. Was it later in the day last week, or had there been a stealth increase in days?

    What, forever? That's one of the worst pieces of arseholery they've pulled in a while. I can't even vote with my wallet as it's a present for someone else.

    Still, everyone here is positive about it so I can't see it being a bad game :)

    I do still hope so. The EG story on it did say it should be - I'd have thought if there was an exception they might've said.

    The big advert on the Xbox dashboard last week said 1 week exclusive to Gold.

    So I'm whining about nothing then. Looks like I'll have to find something else then. The new Dash update will hopefully have something worth moaning about ;) Quick edit: Got the demo off the Marketplace on PC.

    It's still great to see a demo out a reasonable amount of time before the game, as well as lots of lovely reviews. Can't really ask for much more to make an informed purchase decision.

    I downloaded the Forza demo last night and played through it I like it.
    Took a little while to get used to the handling, and the fact that the handbrake is a different button from GTA4 (I'm playing through it at the moment, and kept changing view at a critical moment!)
    Pretty sure I will get this. I quite like the mix of free driving and events. Things like the leaderboard for the speed camera are a nice touch I went back and took several attempts in order to get to the top. :)
    Need to work out where the cheapest pre-order is... Shopto?

    I've played through the demo twice now and while i can't stand the Americanisation, the racing is pretty damn good! It seems to have just the right balance of sim and arcade.

    Reckon I'll pick this up after xmas though. I just can't afford another racing game right now. Be interesting to see just how big the full game map is though.

    Only thing i wasn't too keen on (other then the American thing) was the collision detection. I'm sure I'll get used to it but it felt a little like dodgems.

    Hopefully a day-one patch will remove the guy's fucking awful green wrist furniture.

    I believe the wristbands are a gameplay feature in terms of your characters progression

    Don't forget that anyone pre-ordering this will get a download code for Forza 4 DLC as well, it's a Dodge painted out in Horizon stuff. I've just got mine from Shopto.

    That actually sounds really promising! I don't usually pay much attention to forza dlc but i would def buy a rally expansion! if it was implemented properly it could be brilliant!
  • Deleted user 17 October 2012 16:47:38
    I'd have been all over the game if this had been in from the start. Rallying has been teased since the trailers for Forza 3.

    I'll wait for an all in one edition at some point.

    Had a go at the demo today, I'm impressed, one part Forza, one part DiRT, one part TDU and it looks like it all pulls together quite nicely. I even like the music in the game, and I usually turn it all off.
