Forza 4 demo: Quick race

Second video from the demo of Forza Motorsport 4, here is a quick race with the Subaru WRX STI, on the now more than well known alps race track. And once again, a demonstration of my driving talent.

Record a video with a view where you see the car as well, please. So near behind the car it's possible... :)

Looking good, btw..

Not a big fan of racing sims but this looks mighty awesome. I might consider trying it one day. Thanks for posting those vids Blim.

I'm really very eager now to play the demo. I'd still give the nod to GT 5 regards to lighting, going by the videos at least. Hopefully a real hands on will better demonstrate how good IBL actually is

They did better job than this some year back. Where were you then?

Ummm No...

The only real detail in that video is in the car. I don't normally go for racers anymore but F4 is definitely the best looking of the two big console sims this gen. I may even cancel my BF3 pre order (based on the shitty pre alpha 'beta') and get this.

Most realistic graphics ever?, the only thing that looks better than this is that 'Real Life' mod for Crysis but that was a mod and not the actual game.
Battlefield who!, Forza 4 for best graphics ever!.

Track detail is good but it is not looking realistic and lighting is not that good some how. GT5 is best in that

Is it me or is the gameplay far more chuggy when the screen is filled with competitors? A single car? Pretty much buttery smooth. A whole lineup vying for first place? Not quite as silky smooth. I hope it's the quality of the video or some unfinished game code, but I was mildly disturbed by what I saw.

Looks cool, cannot wait to play the demo and eventually the full game..

First thing I'll do is turn off the ingame music, it annoys the hell out of me.. Only music I need and want to hear is the awesome enginesounds..

The game is totally silky smooth as far as I can tell. I'll check my video.

Nope, the quick race video seems perfectly smooth to me. At what point do you see slowdowns?

Dirt 3 is still a better looking game than Forza 4 and GT 5.
Maybe you mean the PC version with Full on graphics ? and again maybe . . . the console version of dirt 3 noway better looking than this ... and 60 fps like Forza 4 ... no way better!
Commented on 2011-10-01 23:13:24
Best looking sim to date, no PC sim comes close to how this looks, GT5 is very close though but is let down by the poor looking tracks.

At 2:16, but perhaps I'm mistaken and what I see are small disruptions as the player's car is bumped into from behind by the others.

You console kids makes me laugh. The lighting, the textures, the models and the environment in this game is far from the Crysis quality. And you can not compare an FPS with a racing game. Dirt 3 is still a better looking game than Forza 4 and GT 5.
Way to condescend!! You are so COOL! Seriously. Kids? DiRT 3 is not a sim, and it doesn't run @ 60fps on console.

Anyway, looks great. The replays look better, but still aren't where they need to be to become top-dog. In-game play on the other hand...

Commented on 2011-10-02 03:02:56
Are there replays in the demo? I want!

EDIT: Jumped the gun, there's a pseudo replay at the end there :)

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (20 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (22 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (23 minutes ago)

  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (37 minutes ago)
