Buyer Beware! This game is the "Not for resale" version of the game.

Summary: It would have been nice to know that the version of the game being sold was the "Not for resale" version that came bundled with the Xbox 360 Slim. This will definitely complicate things once I'm finished with the game and want to trade it in. Other than that, it *is* a new (unused) copy, so I'm not completely angry.
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 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.
Summary: I've been very loyal to the Forza series. Forza 1 for the XBOX blew my mind, and Forza 2 was very good. Forza 3 is amazing in terms of realism and visuals, but I have one major issue. The original strength of Forza was the on-line component of the game, but Forza 3 takes a step back from Forza 1 and 2. The inability to play on XBOX Live with anything lower than a class A car is inexcusable stupid.
