Is it naïve to think you can judge the character of a racing game from its choice of cover star? Probably. Yet the Project Gotham Racing series' love affair with Ferrari was perfectly suited to its flamboyant character; Race Driver GRID's hulking Dodge Viper in race trim captured its brutish, high-octane track-day drama. And Forza Motorsport 3 couldn't be more aptly summarised by the car that adorns the box (and kicks the racing campaign off in the obligatory high-speed teaser, before you're relegated to buzzing around in superminis): the Audi R8.
It's not, frankly, the prettiest of supercars. It's not the most soulful or thrilling, or, as our American friends would say, the most storied. It is, however, a paragon of ruthless and meticulous engineering excellence, a perfectly balanced, impossibly capable, surprisingly easy-to-handle all-rounder that doesn't need a hardcore enthusiast at the wheel to simply drive around the competition. That's Forza Motorsport 3 all over.
Audi has clearly been more than a commercial influence on the third in Microsoft's exemplary series. The classy, clinical understatement of the presentation, with its blinding white menus and note of cultured authority from narrator Peter Egan, is pure vorsprung durch technik. Developer Turn 10 has admitted that it's heading in the opposite direction to the loud Americanism of Codemasters' Racing Studio, seeking to give its game a high-end, European feel. It's a success, even if it has you reaching for the contrast controls before you're able to see some of the light-grey-on-white type - so quiet in its refinement that you can't actually read it.
Microsoft will give all buyers of Forza Motorsport 3 a coupon to download a batch of free DLC from 27th October.
That will be the Motorsports Legends Car Pack, which includes 10 classic cars and two new maps.
Those sporty stallions are the '65 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GTA, '64 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage, '81 BMW M1, '60 Chevrolet Corvette, '69 Dodge Charger, '57 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, '80 Fiat 131 Abarth, '67 Lamborghini Miura P400, '71 Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R and '65 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe.
Fast cars, scary forests and terrifying falsetto.

There aren't many surprises in our second chance to see Microsoft's flagship 360 racer, simulator, paint shop and all-round petrol-head playground, Forza Motorsport 3. We had already been given a definitive look at the self-appointed "definitive racing game of this generation" at E3, where we were thoroughly schooled in its philosophy of accessibility, flexibility, 400-car and 100-track comprehensiveness, obsessive technical detail, world-beating community features and general all-things-to-all-men definitiveness by an on-message phalanx of developers from Turn 10.
Yes! More Expo games! We can hardly believe it either. Today it's Microsoft who takes centre-stage, tossing AAA Xbox 360 exclusives into the fray like thongs at a Timberlake concert. The Redmond giant isn't messing about either - the two games we're happy to confirm today are Forza Motorsport 3 and a little old thing called Halo 3: ODST. Yes, yes, we're aware that both of these titles will be in the shops at this point, but, as Tim Westwood might say - hold up, big dog.

Microsoft's racing studio Turn 10 wants to make the "best simulator on any console", and one that a child of six could play. It wants to get 65-year-old classic car restoration enthusiasts playing videogames. It wants to make the biggest racing game the world has ever seen. It wants to be the first to bring you tyre flex and deformation at 60 frames per second. It wants to foster the most vibrant user-generated-content community in all gaming.
Car-porn city and we're the mayor.
