Summary: I love simulators and this is a pretty good one, but it takes too long to move along with this game. I often have to reset my driving attempts and the lag between the retry and actually starting off again takes too long and I have found myself falling asleep at times. JK but it is bad. Still, the graphics are amazing and the cars are cool. I wish simulators could figure out how to simulate speed and depth of field.
Summary: I put in at least 50 hours of racing before I started over from scratch. Why? First of all, this is a great game, but this being the first time I've ever owned a racing game (no Gran Turismo or anything else), combined with a very slim "manual" for Forza 3, I didn't understand everything that was going on at the time. I started out with Season Play (as is natural) but ran into some problems about 15% into my career.
Summary: Forza was a great game. Forza 2 was a good one that should have been great. It had amazing graphics and physics, no arguing against that. But it made the same mistake Ferrari F355 Challenge on the Dreamcast did. It was too dang hard. The thing about simulations is that while they are interesting for exploring the possibilities in the real world without real-world consequences (wrecking cars that cost millions isn't something you can do any day of the week for real), they...
Summary: An excellant racing simulator, the driving physics are spot on. The graphics are first-rate and would look even better if I had an HDTV. It still looks superb on my CRT. I also purchased the Prima guide for this game and it really helps with tuning and painting. I have painted several cars and was really pleased with the results. The colors are rich and varied, but I was a little disappointed with the variety of the car decals provided.
Summary: The graphics are excellant, the driving is realistic, and there are many car options and ways to customize your vehicle. However, the damage during races is a bit unrealistic and I don't like that you have to select your racing vehicle before you are able to see the race course. But on the whole I would buy the game again and it is great fun and entertainment. Thanks for a good product!
Summary: Forza 3 is a good game. It looks good, the control is tight and responsive. I only wish there were more multiplayer modes other than traditional racing. There are various tag variants and team-based races, but a cone challenge (like in Project Gotham games) or other non-traditional races would have made it a bit more fun for the less enthusiastic racing fan.
Don't normally play driving games but Forza3 is FUN!!!

Summary: I Don't normally play driving games but Forza3 is FUN!!! Graphics are great and the variety of different race tracks and car classes makes the game even more FUN!!! Bought the XBOX 360 Racing Wheel to accompany the game as I have never been great at driving games using a game pad. The wheel makes a big difference. I was a little disappointed that i didn't wait a month after its initial release [...], how was I supposed to know that the price would drop.
