What can i say apart from brilliant. This game blows GT out of the water, the graphics are for sure Next-gen and i GOOD kick in the teeth for Sony and its 900 processor power plant.

The game obviously a race sim is very much like GT but, just better. The crashing os awesome, painting the car is awesome, the upgrades are awesome, SO many upgrades, soo many cars. The handling, well expected from a race sim is spot on. I really cannot fault this game!

10/10

Some pics of my custom paint job and a big smash i had. I will upload my XBOX car later.

Look familiar? (http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t126/kevinorriss/civic.jpg)

Ouch! (http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t126/kevinorriss/crash.jpg)

Des, and weezer, this is a must get game. Best 360 game yet.

I am so jealous of this game. I played it at my friends house, it was absolutely amazing. This is a huge slap in the face for Sony and Polyphony. I mean I still think GT-HD cars looked better (just the lights, for some reason forza was unable to recreate realistic looking lights), but there are only that many of them, and only 1 time trial track. I wonder if GT5 will actually be able to match this, preferably before forza 3 comes out.

Hey can't get LIVE, so he should get a game with a huge single player campaign. I, for one, say Gears due to the fact that I don't like sim racers and that I'm a gears whore, but if you like sims more, then this certainly sounds like your best bet.

Yeah right. Don't get me wrong, Forza's a great series, and it might even be better than GT in some respects, but there's no way in hell it "blows it out of the water". That, I find laughable.

Review

Ok this game is, as you should already know, brilliant. I will start off with getting into the game, it is very easy to get into, you pick which region you want, and those cars are unlocked from the start. The easy races are available with the hard races and other region cars are locked. You earn points and ranks on each race, multi and single player which unlock the next races. Each completed section you are awarded a bonus and the fastes AI car you raced.

I dont want to blow my own trumpet here, but i do think im above "average" skill with racing games, so i put the AI on hard. The opponents are excellent, rather than when you cut infront of them they dont just spin you out, they will break and try to miss you. This may seem like the game must be easy then, but no, not if your the one who is behind. The AI is excellent for this as they will block ou out as much as they can.

Graphics, are again brilliant, i really cant think of a bad thing to say in that department. The "Hold" of this game, eg how long it keeps you playing, is high. I spend half my time on the paint feature which gives it that extra boost.

From the paint feature there is also an upgrade and tune feature like all race sims, these are very in depth and believe me, COST ALOT. The tuning has a cool idea on it, rather than spending the whole weekend choosing if you wnat to lower your ride height by 1mm, you can go to the scoreboards and find the fastest person with your car, and download his cars tune settings, all you need to have is skill.

I am struggling to find a fault with the game, the only thing i can think of is if there was a reset to stock option in the upgrade menu, apart from that, this game is perfect.

I am going to continue making "company cars" just for a bit more depth to the game, my next idea is a Tesco value, and Wal-mart car.

Dirty car (http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t126/kevinorriss/dirtycar.jpg) This isnt porn, i just wanted to show that as you keep racing the cars get dirty, they are clean the next race but i just thought it was kinda cool.

Crash (http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t126/kevinorriss/crash-1.jpg) - Here is the details of bits flying here and there when you have head on's. It looks betting when you watch it, its kinda hard to capture it in a pic.

Face in clouds (http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t126/kevinorriss/faceinclouds.jpg) - Now, weezer couldnt see it but i could see a very feint cloud in the sky, the below picture outline where it is. Its easier to see it in-game, but im just worried now that maybe its me going mad.

Is that really a Lambo cop car? :roll:

I can't believe our govn'mnt would actually spend the money to get a lambo police car, what's the point? just an overblown waste of money.

I doubt they would actually need that power to catch any crooks around the streets of London, even if they were on a chase onto some country roads/motorways, surely they would have bought something more practical than a lambo and one that they could really USE, an evo or an impreza for example.

I also got Gears. :D

How I got them you might ask. I traded in my PS3, I got my $650 back, I was just going to get some 360 games and wait for the price to drop apparently that was today, I found that out at gamestop, so we went back to target got it, my dad signed up for some credit card thing, so I got $50 off, than he just canceled it.

Oh well horses for courses I guess.

I wonder if demo's released in europe are the same as here in the America's??? I know that sometimes we have stuff that you guys don't.

Well I just received a cheque for 200 just for finishing my NVQ :-) now i'm REALLY tempted to go for the 360.

NFS is a game where you need to get your lines and speed right, ok so I know you CAN go round a corner quite easy in it going sideways, but it's quicker to get the right line. I remember challenging my mate to a race on one of the motorway levels on the nfsu2, but the challenge was not letting go of the accelerator (easy once you get the right lines)

well, I've sold my Wii, at a bargain price but I just want the money to get my 360, which I may get tonight, if not by tomorrow night.

Suggestions for first games? I'm gonna get 2-3
Forza for sure, I may get GOW or just borrow it off my mate. Crackdown worth it as a first game?
I'm more into simulation, strategy & racing games.
Can't wait till GTA IV comes out, I realised I wont be able to play it on a Wii!

GoW is great, but the story's short. You may want to buy it if you plan on playing it online, though. Loads of fun.

As you probably know, I just got Oblivion. I love it and if you like RPGs I'd highly recommend it. I'm amazed by how big the cities are. I'm used to the limited cities in FF, but these are almost too big! It'll surely keep you busy.

And when you get it, be sure to add me. My gamertag's Weezer120989 (changed it; I don't use Weezer1989)

Its annoying that you cant zoom in loads when creating your image, or the option to create it on a 2D surface then apply it to the car. It looks cool in game more than here, but thats the best i can do. Respect to those who do the real looking images.

That looks pretty cool, probably way better than anything I would have had patience for (if I had a 360 and forza...), but I have to comment on something. Homer's mouth is far too big, any chance you could make it smaller?

Kernel Kev
11-08-2007, 05:42 PM
Thats the thing about forza is, his mouth isnt too big because i sized it all with basic shapes before i started, its the way the cars curves distort the image, if i put his head on say the roof of a mini cooper it would look right.

Plus i havent the patients to alter it to that car because i cant copy it to another car then as i would have to do it all again.

Started playing Forza properly last night, was really getting into it, seems like the way to win is to upgrade your car as much as possible before it becomes too high a class, for some reason all the best cars with higher ratings are placed 1st on the grid, so all I do before I start a race is check all the opponents cars and upgrade mine to suit.
Seems like I've only scratched the surface of it too, almost completed all the first series of races. I really do like this game, I may even say it's better than GT4, I like the telemetry that you can show while racing too, will help when it comes to tuning a car. Cant wait until I'm further into the game and able to buy racing cars etc. and can't wait to play around on the features on live.

I might still not be able to play you though. My college's internet is menstruating so I can't connect my PS3 online. It worked once in the past month that I have been here, and never since. The servers are getting updated right now, so there is a slight chance that it will start working, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Sorry Kev.... Over here our cars and bikes are differnt to what you guys have back home.

A 300m is the version before the Chrysler c300 which I know you guys have.
If you saw the lasdt Bourne movie the bad guys were all driving black 300m about.

I have a 300m... 3,5ltr V6 with a few mods that help it kick out some 287bhp.... she is a great car to drive and work in and is VERY comfortable but expensive to maintain at times... new race pads cost me 175 just for the front end... and a new tyre cost me 150.
She is not bad on fuel but as gas is only $1.05 ltr (0.48p) that is no big deal.
Think there is a piccie somewhere on this site of me standing infront of the car.
