105 Forza images !

105 Forza images !

I've spent my afternoon playing Forza Motorsports. Even if my full preview will have to wait a bit (don't worry, it's good) here are all of the images from the game press kit. Some are (I think) never seen before, others are old or even from last E3, but since the shots are in very good quality I decided to let them here. Also included are some photos from how the Forza team went to the real tracks.

Hi BlimBlim - what version of Forza have you played the whole afternoon? The OXM demo or did you get your hands on a extended preview version?

Commented on 2004-12-03 21:30:53
I played the latest beta of the game, almost content complete but far from debugged and optimized.

Blim i think i love you, cant wait to see what she had to say, i'm on egg shells over here.

Awesome Blim, when can we expect your hands-on preview? Can't wait for new infos...

Mid december I'd say. MS did not give me any precise date yet, I'll contact them on monday.

Blimblim, how is the graphics in this version that you played???? is it better than the graphics from the demo???
Commented on 2004-12-06 16:02:25
The "original" tracks I played where much better looking than Laguna Seca. That's just the way the track looks in real life.
I'm still waiting for MS' reply for releasing a small video I did of a never seen before track (quite nice looking) so maybe you'll be able to see by yourself.

hummmmmmmm so waiting for the video!
and did you ask them about the number of tracks in the game???? and the number of cars??? and if the damage in the demo is full or limited????

:- )

No official number of tracks, but the track list on Forza Central seemed pretty spot on (the one on gamefront is missing A LOT). Same for the car list.
The damage in the demo seems the same as in the beta. They did not get the license to have the cars lose some parts so we'll have to live with it.

By the way did you hesar of Forza being pushed back while you were there?
Commented on 2004-12-07 06:35:45
Yep, they did not gave a precise date, but they mentioned the preview version being distributed in february. And now the french retailers list the game for April 29.

Hi BlimBlim,

Thanks so much for the screenshots and sharing this with us all! This game is looking just stunning and we're all looking forward to reading your hands-on preview. I will be sure to feature your preview on my website at and I will be keeping a close eye on your coverage of Forza Motorsport. Keep up the great work BlimBlim!

Does it mean that the cars won't be completely destructible? If we have a big front crash on a wall, will we be able to continue the race?
If the damage are just esthetic, like it seems to be in the OXM Demo, it's a shame... :(

ComposerRyan> it's been a while that I visit your site and I love it :)

No the cars won't be completely destructible. They do not have the rights to do it. But yes there are damages. If you crash hard, the car will start behaving wrong, like not accelarating correctly, leaning on left or the right, things like that.
You know how cars manufacturers are...

QUOTING AKIRA: "ComposerRyan> it's been a while that I visit your site and I love it :)"

Thanks Akira, I'm really glad you like the site and find the information there to be useful! :)

I'm also looking forward to seeing the full damage system in the full version. At least Forza has damage in it because GT4 doesn't even have it. So, I can't complain. :)

So, BlimBlim, are we going to see the preview anytime soon? I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for your preview. ;)
Commented on 2004-12-10 10:33:12 In reply to ComposerRyan
I'm still waiting for a reply from MS about when I can put it online (and also if I can put some parts of the video online)
Commented on 2004-12-10 22:09:23
Ryan stop spaming, have you no shame? I tell ya, some people and their spam, that would be like me saying hey come see or hey check out and Blim you know there is no way i would ever do a thing like that.

Anyway i still cant wait to get the word on that hands on you have sitting there.
Commented on 2004-12-17 02:38:33
Thanks BlimBlim for updating us...we're still impatiently waiting. :) Any chance that we'll receive your preview as an early Christmas present?

And Morfeeis you're so sarcastic. lol :D You and your excuses to just couldn't resist could you? lol
Commented on 2004-12-17 19:26:46
Nah, i had to do it. :)

Hi BlimBlim, Any chance your Forza preview is coming soon as Eurogamer did a preview following the event this week, or how about a Question & Answer session ?

Cheers Target...

For the moment I'm still waiting for MS' greenlight. And seeing other european sites having the preview online is really annoying :/

I really doubt my preview will be any good considering how difficult it is for me to write in english :/
Just don't hope for too much I guess ;)
