Nice, but Gran Turismo or Project Gotham 3 is better.
9 March 2007
Summary: Forza is a decent game but I can't help but compare it to Gran Turismo 3 for PS2 or Project Gotham 3 for xbox 360. Mainly because of the fact that it doesn't have an inside (cockpit) view. I hope Forza 2 coming out for the 360 will have this option. For a true simulator, like what Forza claims to be, an inside view is essential. It's just not realistic seeing only the road in front of you.
Conclusion: I dont know if everyone here can afford a steering wheel, but this game is horrible on the handling aspect if you dont have a wheel. You hit every single wall unless you drop speed to a halt and then everyone passes you. very disappointed with this game. Its not just me because on other xboxs it has been the same, why can't Microsoft make anything where you are going to have spend more and more money.
Disappointed, especially after all the glowing reviews

Summary: I bought this games after reading excellent reviews on Amazon.com and other places. Never have I felt so disconnected from - and disappointed by - most of the reviews. I have played many racing games on the PS2, PC and the Xbox, including Gotham Racing 1 and 2, GT2, GT3, GT4, etc., and I really feel that this is NOT the best racing game ever, not even close.
A complete and unexpected disappointment compared to GT4

Summary: I cannot believe what a hunk of junk this game is compared to GT4. My level of disappointment far exceeds the whopping $50 I spent of this game. Let's be specific. Here are quantitatively some of deficiences of this game compared to GT4: 1) Engine sound is absolutely muted and unrealistic. A porsche and a Ferrari sounds remarkably similar.
Conclusion: once i got this game, i started off thinkin it was alright, but after a while, i just got bored and i lost interest in the game. The game has good graphics don't get me wrong, but thats all u can really say about it, can't customize ya cars to much, (if u don't have the money) and i thought the race tracks were SH*T........
Summary: I have played the demo version of this game and was immediately un-impressed. The graphics were jirky, even the FMV, the cars look unrealistic and handle terribly. Project Gotham is far superior. I would definately not recommend this game. Get project Gotham instead.
