Forza 3: One Le Mans lap

Forza 3: One Le Mans lap

As we told you the other day we couldn't go to the Forza 3 présentation at the "Le Mans" track, but our good friend Sebull was there and send it this long and huge video showing a full lap around the famous track. Many thanks to him!

OK if you know ,you know but i dont know if Rewind is a good idea ...
Look at 00:35 and read the Rewind description

Forza always looks to cartoony imo, i think it's the over done reflections. I'll still buy it though

That looks great

Who cares? Nobody forces you to use it, if you don't like it, don't use it. Since it isn't in multiplayer I really don't see a problem.

Looks really good, especially the back view :D

But im sorry to say this, Forza 3 has become an arcade racer more then a sim.

What does it say?

Haha, so that's the correct way to say it... I've always pronounced it like it's spelled. Leh menz. I'm such an American

And yeah rewind is a horrible idea. I want a sim that forces you to use the car's actual tranny, and definitely none of this assist stuff.

I like the idea of a rewind. Never been a fan of sim racers because of how difficult they are to play. Giving the option for those of us to suck to use things like that seems like a great idea.. don't see why it effects those who don't want to use it.

I don't know if Dan Greenwalt is just trying to be an ass but he has to mention rolling even though he is not demonstrating it. It's like a cheap jab at GT5 even though it uncalled for and just takes the class out of his presentation. I like Forza3 but the developers are becoming so arrogant and classless I may not buy this game.

I see how someone would think that watching this video. But if you notice his settings he has all the assists on, and the difficulty on easy. If you use the same settings in forza 1 & 2 you get the same result. Now I've obviously never driven a Le Mans car before, so I can't really say its realistic, but in 1 & 2, with all assists off and the difficulty on hard its very convincing. Unfortunately in all the demo videos of the 3rd the players like to keep it on super easy mode.

In any case this game is looking like a great improvement over the 2nd. Now if they just put some of the night courses from forza 1 back in, I'll be happy.

It is impossible to judge the quality of the game from off screen videos, especially seeing as the game has got over 6months of development time left.
Off-screen videos tend to make the graphics looks rather bad.
Just wait till we get some direct feed videos before making up your minds about how good or bad the graphics look.
I am a big Forza fan as well as a big Gran Turismo fan and the one thing that I have seen GT5 having over Forza 3, so far, is the number of cars on track.
GT5 will apparently have up to 20 cars on track for single player and up to 16 for multiplayer/online. From everything we know about Forza 3 so far, it seems that we will be limited to 8 cars on track which is a real shame.
But if those cars have good AI, especially over GT's drone cars, then 8 cars will be OK :-)
Anyway, October can't come quick enough for me :-)

That rewind thing truly sucks.
Commented on 2009-06-15 18:21:15
I was pleasantly surprised that the rewind tool (from GRID) has made it's way to Forza 3. I loved that feature in GRID and removed a lot of frustration that I usually encounter in race games. If you don't like it, don't use it (but I'm sure you will ;o))

I don't have money to buy F3, Shift and Dirt2. But at this point, I have no idea what game to choose.

I like the rewind function. I did the short races of FM2 with sim damage and no assists, but for endurance races that take you about an hour each I didn't do it. I didn't want to have a perfect race for 50 min and then screwing up at some point, hit a wall/car and start all over again. Even if it's just the aerodynamics, you cam feel the car doesn't seem right and it'll show in the lap times, imagine going on the Nürburgring and some dumbf*** crashes into you and you still have over half a lap to go to the box. It's waaay too frustrating.

Oh yeah and FM3 sure is an arcade racer... that's why the specialist press who have driven it said they couldn't believe it's a sim on a console.

Just go away fanboys. Offscreen the environment looks very realistic, thanks to very good looking 3D trees with realistic colour this time (look at the obscure trees in FM2 for reference), haven't seen better ones in ANY racer by a long shot.

Hes selling his game, not necessarily taking a jab at GT5 (he does that enough) so chill out.

Looks great

Kinda weird that Turn 10 talk up their game so much when they're lagging behind the competition, this version of La Sarthe doesn't look as good as the one in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

From what I can recall Dan said something like this
" Our cars roll because we think Rolling is really important in a racing game however this GT Prototype has a very low center of gravity so it probably won't roll, infact it's probably impossible to roll this car.. blah blah blah"
Seriously why even mention rolling? If you want to brag about damage, then slam into a wall and lets see it all shattered like Burnout.

Come on, stop comparing graphics when all we have here is a recording of a tv screen. Obviously the game you played at home is going to have been higher quality than that.

And either way, whether Forza or Gran Turismo end up being the better game, the graphics are not going to be the deciding point. If this plays better, and has a lot more features than GT, but doesn't look quite as nice.. Then I know which game I'll be playing.

LOL CARTOONY?? Wow.. In that case a real life summers day looks "cartoony" as well lol. Our world isnt brown and grey like in WW2 games you know.

WoW, Look awesome game play and really great for new engine. This is my sim racer.
Commented on 2009-06-15 20:10:50
looks great. Anyone who have ever played the first games with assist on and off knows how big of difference it is. Forza3 is progressing in a nice pace. October can't come soon enough.
