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.
Summary: Just when I thought I was getting sick of hardcore sim racers, along comes Forza 3. Microsoft’s big-budget series just keeps on adding content, and the game now spans two discs. There’s well over 60 hours of career here alone. I definitely like the fact that it doesn’t take forever to get my hands on something mean and fast. The tracks that host these automobiles also shine with gorgeous graphics and great replay value.
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: Forza Motorsport 3 is a great way to get into the racing genre, it offers something for the beginner up to the hardcore racer. It offers racers a chance to jump right in and race or go full blown and invest a lot of time in career mode. It’s a game that even the casual racing fan will like, it’s got something for everyone really.
Pros: Tons of options to customize and configure cars, A lot of cars and tracks to choose from, Community driven creation, Excellent graphics, Long career mode
Cons: Very easy on easy, Can’t blow up cars…, A lot of work to unlock cars
Excerpt: Microsoft’s Forza series has become one of the premier driving simulators in a very short time. Having started its life on the original Xbox, I remember playing the first iteration of this driving game for many, many hours. Since that time the series has progressed into one great driving-sim and Microsoft has recently released the third chapter of the Forza franchise.
