@mgdlite. I really doubt it's going to be turn into NFS and be awful. There have been countless times while playing any of the Forza games where I've been thinking, "what if that barrier wasn't there and I could drive there? Or going around Fujimi and wanting a new mountain, or traffic, night racing. Making the touge racing scene seem more real.
Grid had probably the best night-time, downhill racing ever and with the people from CodeMasters coming in to help out, I can't imagine what it'll be like. I feel like this game deserves an honest chance and with the Forza team behind the wheel (no pun intended), I know they're going to pull it off without a hitch. I can't wait to get my hands on this game and ignore people for a week haha.
