Summary: Forza Motorsport 3 is fun to play, but it is really a lot more about designing your car and pimping it out than it is about driving it. Don't get me wrong; I had a blast creating my dream car and furnishing it with all the bells and whistles that I would have on my car if I had infinite amounts of cash! But the whole reason I bought the game was for the driving experience.
Summary: If you've ever dreamt of owning a gorgeous sports car, this is the game of you. If you want thrills and absolute extreme speed, destruction and absurdity (like in Burnout Paradise ), it isn't. It's a very good looking racing simulator, with emphasis on owning, styling, tuning and racing as in real life.
Summary: I got this game on the recommendation of others as a gift and it is indeed impressive. Works well on my son's XBox 360. I would give it 5 stars, but it does't work with the Madcatz MC2 racing wheel I was also given as a gift! And that's the dilemma - here is a certified XBox 360 controller and the game doesn't work with it... And can Madcatz or Forza give me an answer as to how to fix it? Good luck waiting for that (submitted support requests weeks ago).
Summary: This game isn't really that fun, especially on the default settings. The default settings allow you to have all the assists on (braking, line, etc). With those on, you never need to let go of the gas and it becomes rather boring. All you have to do is follow the racing line (or somewhere close to it). The AI isn't that challenging and once you pass them you are pretty much cruising the rest of the way.
Summary: Never really been a huge fan or Forza, Need for Speed, or the Gran Turismo games, but they can be enjoyable for a little while. Basically games like this are for people who just wanna drive, which can be quite fun, yet takes a special person to really just sit and have a mid paced race. No, its not Motorstorm, or Burnout, its just a beautiful looking game with all kinds of customizable cars to unlock and have fun with.
Summary: This is by far the most technically accurate driving simulator I've played. I bought it primarily for the chance to drive the Circuit de la Sarthe and drive the Audi R10 TDI and although I've not yet gotten the R10 yet, the Circuit de la Sarthe is pure virtual bliss! The single player experience is one of the best I've played of any racing game and the seasons and tracks and available cars make for hours of fun.
