OP stupid or pretending to be stupid?, you decide.

there's no story in Forza, so it can't be a pre-quel just a rushed sequel.

#4 Posted by MajesticShea (730 posts) -

Forza 4 looks almost as good as Forza 5 sans resolution but that's because it has more features.

However GT6 trounces both of them by far.

It can't be a rehash, because they took things out.

#8 Posted by silversix_ (15575 posts) -

$60 expansion to Forza 4.

#9 Posted by telefanatic (2883 posts) -

GT6 will own both of them in terms of content and cars.

Don't expansions add new things instead of taking things out?

@supercowelitist: Forza 4 was 720p 60 FPS

And you forgot to include laser scanned tracks, expanded tire and suspension physics, higher attention to detail with Forza 5

In regards to the Storefront and Auction House

Designs are put in front of you every time you buy a car, and you can search for designs/artists. The Storefront is just gone in the sense that you no longer have to pay for the designs you use. Designers still get paid.

A solid racer with less content than its predecessors.

That is stupid. No story means it cant be a sequel either. Its just this consoles first Forza, the 5th that has been made. Is Madden 2015 a sequel?

Not when the expansion comes from Turd 10.

Forza 4 didn't have day/night cycles nor weather.

#18 Edited by Jankarcop (10242 posts) -

its a shoddy and rushed sequel, something consoles are known for. (which is why consoles have less aaa/aa games than pc)

#19 Edited by R3FURBISHED (10791 posts) -

@supercowelitist: OP is still incorrect

  • Forza 4 is 720p 60 FPS
  • Forza 4 did not have day/night/weather - it had morning, noon, dusk (as does Forza 5)

  • Forza 5 increased car fidelity - Turn 10 spends 6 months making one car -
  • Seamless Storefront and Auction House items http://www.twitch.tv/microsoftstudios/b/415729737 - Painters are payed based on usage of their designs (19:00 mark in link provided)
  • Vastly increased tire physics and attention to detail
  • Vastly increased suspension physics and attention to detail
  • Laser Scanned tracks
  • Forza 5 runs 1080p 60 FPS
  • VASTLY expanded AI with Drivatars

Glad I could help you out TC! Cause you needed the help badly

Look at the side-by-side comparisons of the cars that Turn 10 put out. It's night and day. The only downside is that modelling them so well has reduced the total number of cars in the game.

Yeah actually Madden is. Just like the real life SB's are technically sequels. Involving many of the previous years players, but with a different outcome.

Who cares, the whole series blows.....it's just eye candy, the game mechanics and controls suck, Gran Turismo series is far superior in every way.

#25 Posted by SinjinSmythe (789 posts) -

Taking a 1976 F1 car around Spa................................................Yep, I'm game. Even stripped down this will be the greatest racing sim on consoles. Ever.

I know. Those PS2 quality cars are quite something.

Its hard to believe when you just make statements without any proof or reason at all why its superior

#28 Edited by che5ter666 (674 posts) -

@speedfreak48t5p: exactly! I will laugh so hard if it happens with GT6 - unsure if this is the case as have not been bothered to even follow the game. GT will always be remembered for 'bumper cars'.

Whole lot of preemptive damage control from TC. Reviews will be here next week along with tons of hands on impressions. I don't think it will be perfect by any stretch, but it is surely going to be the best looking, most technologically advanced racing sim to ever grace a console. Anyone thinking otherwise is simply uninformed.

@majesticshea: lol.

#32 Posted by _Matt_ (9263 posts) -

It's going to be a quality Forza sequel just deprived a little of content, evidently rushed for X1 launch.
