The damage to car isn't as effective as on grid, but the game still looks sweet. Also rewind doesn't look as good(apart from that it is unlimited) visually.

all or most racing games are incorporating the rewind idea now after grid did, even if grid didn't first use (create) the idea it sure got everyone else using it.

@vassago people who use the assists are ranked on the same boards as those that don't, but the fact that they use them affects their placing. Therefore if you have the fastest time in the world, but have used the assists, your ranking will below those who took longer but did it completely natural. It's fair and fun, and you can see who's using what. I just hope I'm not to tempted to use the rewind lol.

looking like a real killer game. I like how they have all these assist things so you can play and enjoy the game even if you're not a hardcore racing fan, but if you wan't to, you can turn them all off and play it like a racing sim... And the graphics looks magnificent.

Oh please, GRID didn't invent the ability to rewind... go back 19 years to Stunts. Even a game that would run on a 286 allowed you to start playing from any point of a replay.

You know what? you're all a bunch of whiners. I just love watching you kids say whats better and what not. But really . . . You like it? Buy it. You don't like it? Don't buy it, simple as that. You know the rest =]

i hate this rewind stuff! why why should you not be punished by losing the race for screwing up. I just wont use it and its fine thats its there for those who like it but really I just dont like that for myself. It seems weird to me... I dont know... for practice it might make sense I guess..

What a loser - "my favourite part of the game is just looking at the cars" really? really? I had 3 problems with forza 2: 1)SP was a massive grind-fest and highly repetitive, 2)The tracks were boring because of lack of scenery and 3)There was no weather. I know they have fixed 2, looks like they might have fixed 1, but does anyone know anything about 3?

When the game was announced I was YES Forza 3 another great car racing game. If you guys did not played Forza 2 you have to try it you won't regret it, it's very fun to play and has great graphics!!!

Well first of all this game looks, sounds really good, 400 cars even better more tracks loving it. But as for those bashing on my GT don't leave dumb comments. GT is one of the best simulation games out their and I'm not taking anything from Forza. As for bashing GT prologue- meanig of a preface setting up the story and the background. There are too many fanboys that have to take everything away from game cuz they don't have that console and they call themselves gamers. A real gamer knows it doesn't matter what console you have but the most important are the games!!! I own both no I'm not spoiled I work for my hobbies now I'm trying to get the Wii. For the PS3 haters the price drop to $299 so STOP taking the credits the game deserves. Speaking from true gamers around the world don't matter what color, culture, religion killing noobs since 1986MLG.

I can't wait to just simply play. Forza 2 was great, I love the changes they made with Forza 3.

Chelidze, cars are covered by plastic (paint is a polymer...) and many of the race cars are carbon fiber or fiberglass (which is a mix of polimers and textile)...

Gosh I love the rewind options, I was so frustrated when at the end of race sometimes I lost control (specially on Corvettes :) ) and had to restart a perfect race all over. Removes a lot of annoyance for me...

Narrator guy needs to read a script. Or practice some more. When you're selling me something you should be excited about selling it and be familiar with all the bells and whistles.

400 cars!? WITH COCKPIT VIEW!? wow....forza 2 had like 200-250 cars or so w/o cockpit view and i thought that was impressive....this is gonna be epic

Nordschleife is like 22km long. That's a LOT of data guys. Try to find another game that looks as good, that loads that track faster. As for rewind and 1-button driving, they are features you can TURN OFF. So stop f'n whining already, jesus. People CANNO T use these assists and rank on "official" scoreboards. Forza is looking for a larger audience, so pulling in very casual gamers with simple assists is a good idea. Over time, they'll merge into the simulation aspects of the game. It's all about new customers. I really don't see why you little kids are complaining so much.

@ DjTIEST0 I read your post twice and I still don't understand what you're saying. I'm very impressed with what they've done with this game, It looks like its gonna be amazing. I don't use my 360 that much but I'm positive this will keep me on it for a long time. Its too bad that it has less than half the amount of cars GT5 is supposed to have..but then again GT5 only has 100 something cars that actually show damage. I like forza's racing mechanics and feel much better than GT though.

sj_nehama 800 cars with psp graphic are u kidding me man you will say GT5 have 1.000 but who cars some of then dont have damage and some other like in WCR are like ps2 graphic lmao so better small and perfect like big and missed up btw look at how things going Microsoft have don 2 forza and sony still with that arse GT5 oh they did GT5 prologue totality failure can even play online cos i got an error

Finally Cockpit view!!!

Yeah its actually spot on he starts accelerating at 04:00 into the video and reaches 186 mph at 04:16 so this is some realistic physics on Turn 10's part! Can't wait to have Bugatti Veyron-only races online.

NicAgent
NicAgent

Bugatti Veyron goes from 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 2.5 seconds, and 0-300 km/h (0-186 mph) in 16.7 seconds. Not sure if this video is quite that accurate it sounds pretty close.

A Bugatti Veyron will deplete its entire fuel supply in just 12 minutes at full speed. Ya think it can be reached on the Nissan Speedway?

So in 2 years Turn 10 have managed 400 cars, That can be upgraded, tuned, Painted 100 tracks Massive improvement to multiplayer, Storefront, tons of options New UI with seamless menus 220 events compared to forza 2s 90 events Cockpit view that runs at 60FPS Improved physics. Better improved AI and more... OMFG just incredible. Can't wait to see what they do with Forza 4.

there's always an opposition in a place like these. but i 'll try to be fair. if GT's so great why so many delays(for the PS3 and PSP). the only great GT is from PSONE and it's a long time ago, so get over it! as for NFS, EA kinda loose it's identity, maybe because Burnout Paradise are such a huge success(another EA title). NFS should stick to it's roots like Most Wanted...and Forza will be the next best thing!

this game and gran tursimo 5 will be the most realisitic racing sims in my opinion

This game looks absolutely amazing. I would have liked to see the demo of the career mode, though. It's important to note that NFS Shift is going with this new "realistic" format as well.

@MoonBased Same as I said to Gigler then go play NFS and be happy. Nobody care if SS/Background is a little Like GT or if you think NFS looks better.

MoonBased
MoonBased

the car "Screen-saver/Background" looks a little like GT. NFS Shift looks like a better looking and a more challenging game.

@Francuzzzz ya we'll see when it comes out in another 4-5 years at this rate.. i like how this is there second game for the 360 and gran turismo cant even get one full game out..

sammoth

@Gigler Then play Grid2 and be happy. Why do you need to Justify it by saying Forza3 is a bad game when it's not even out yet. Plus they are 2 different typess of games. Seriously I'm not the only one here thats going to say this. Grid2 is a great game but, Forza 3 is more about Sim, Career mode, custom paint jobs, Racing Ladders, Lots of cars and tracks, Fine Tunning, Differnet race Modes and finally Community. I am not a Forza Fanboy I just like Race games that give lots of Depth but, with the new Features that Turn 10 added it also added a simple I just want to Race Mode.

GRID 2 amokes this Forza crap. You get four hundred cars in the game but it will take four hundred years to even get to them. Is the game about driving and racing or not? Grid gives you the cars and lets you drive without the dated unlock process. We just want to drive and modify our cars. At least I do.
