Excerpt: It’s taken a while and after a lot of hype, Forza 3 finally graces the gaming stage in one of the hottest and competitive genres in the industry. Racing games per se have always had a problem trying to achieve the pinnacle of the genre and that is to supply a game that gives you the feeling and immersion of racing a car for real. The two big players for the racing console crown appear as two separate exclusives on the next gen consoles.
Conclusion: It’s insanely hard to sum up Forza 3 Motorsport. It’s a title best experienced, as it nurtures around each player to ensure they’re getting the most out of their specific car interests. It has certainly laid down the marker for Gran Turismo 5 to surpass; a task that now looks incredibly daunting. At this stage in Forza’s lifespan, it doesn’t feel like we could ask for much more.
Excerpt: Product Description Introducing the Limited Edition Forza 3 Evolution Racing Seat. This evolution is outfitted with an extra strong, lightweight, black powder coated tubular steel frame with high-tension spring, and wire system for the ultimate racing experience. The new limited edition evolution is fully upholstered in Black synthetic leather and red stitching with the official Forza Motorsport 3 branding and insignia.
Excerpt: Considering that most of the accessibility improvements made in Forza 3 were incremental, the lack of subtitles becomes the single most important accessibility concern in the game. Related, but not identical, text occasionally appears on screen while the announcer is speaking but this text appears inconsistently.
Summary: Turn 10 may have dethroned
as the sim racing King. This game is breathtaking in every sense of the word and you’ll be hard pressed to find a more complete game in any genre. A must have for any racing fan.
Conclusion: Replaying Forza Motorsport 3 is quite easy. I haven't played a great racing game like this in a long time and am thoroughly enjoying the moments I get to spend with it. Some of the current multiplayer issues will surely be patched soon enough. Turn 10 is normally fairly good at keeping their games up to date, provided the fan base is there – which it clearly is with Forza. Put quite simply; do not let any of the current controller issues turn you completely off.
Extraordinarily good racing game -- but has open chat.

Summary: Parents need to know that there is little to be concerned about with Forza Motorsport 3 . However, keep in mind that players using the online mode can communicate with one another via headsets, and there is no one moderating what's being said during online multiplayer matches. We didn't hear anything inappropriate in our testing, but the potential exists.
Conclusion: Que ce soit au niveau de la photo ou de la vidéo, il ne faudra pas s’attendre à des retouches complexes et élaborées. Les micro-ordinateurs restent un formidable outil pour peaufiner ces enregistrements. Seul regret, la forte compression des photos prises ainsi que l’impossibilité d’exporter ces dernières sur clé USB. Pourtant le jeu compte énormément sur le multi-joueurs pour vivre et perdurer dans le temps, il aurait été bien de récompenser dignement les photographes.
Pros: Accessible et complexe à la fois, L'évolution graphique, Les tableaux de bord, La fonction Rewind
Cons: Compression trop élevée des photos, L'aliasing et les ombres médiocres, Bande sonore décevante, Nécessite un disque dur
Excerpt: What would make the ultimate racing game? It's hard to put a finger on the exact ingredients that would blend in such a way to blow away the competition, and even trickier to put into words that special something that just makes the best racing games feel right. You'd definitely need a deep career mode, loads of officially licensed cars, a wide selection of real and fictional tracks, a driving model that can be tweaked to be suitable for just about everyone, gorgeous...
