The game is amazing! It feels like Forza, but improved. You can really feel the suspension working on the different height elevation on the track. Braking feels much more satisfying. The car shakes a bit when you break and turn hard. Its friggin awesome!

Damn that looked awesome.

Um, those images look pretty damn horrific, there appears to be no AA at all and i thought they had pulled the cockpit back a bit?
Is this an old build (the usual excuse) or does the game really look this bad, my gold ran out last week like i said, so cant try it myself.

look the game in it's true form, granted forza and GT look unbelievable in photo mode where the angles can do the game engine justice, but in the view you drive in the those images are alot more representative for the experience one will gain then again the AA will not be that horrific in motion.

I want to play it!!! :( There is no demo here in my XBL :(
Commented on 2009-09-24 13:08:21
this is also highly likely to be an older build

The game looks terrific in motion.

this image hurt my eyes http://www.gamersyde.com/pop_images_forza_motorsport_3-11621-12.html, I wouldn't be so critical if they didn't start shooting their mouths of about being the best looking game period.

Thats the one that really hit me, the ferrari looks like a PS2 model, covered in jaggies and very low detail, not to mention that it looks like theres no reflection on the body. Just looks sooo sooo poor.
Commented on 2009-09-24 13:16:49
Really? Terrific? horrific?

OMFG! This is the most important game ever, for me. NFS Shift is better, then?
Commented on 2009-09-24 13:20:09
It better not look like that in the final game. It does look pretty damn BAD in those screens. Absolutely no AA. Just like they did with Forza2.

lol the screens above are just plain BAD. ive heard the sense of speed is appalling too especially compared to nfs shift, and the cockpit view isnt half as good cos all you can see is one dial and a bit of dash = pointless! come on turn 10 what you playing at :(

It worked. To download the US Demo, just go to the M$ XBL website and program the download there. It will start when you turn your xbox on.

They're playing at making a damn good driving game, that's what. Tyres being felt skudding across tarmac, gripping AI racing, real weight and feel to each different car. It's great. And looks brilliant in motion too - little details like full mirror reflections, the way the tyres deform on contact with the road (and on jumps, which there is a little one in the demo), the way each car feels different and controls smoothly even at speed. When you lose control it's totally your fault.

Everything else is nitpick, really. Turn 10 have done a great job. Not saying that there aren't problems, the AA's there but it's 2x by the looks of things on my screen so there IS aliasing. But when the package is so good and looks fine anyway when running it really is a nitpick.

Wait for the HD videos before casting it to the flames people.

Or better yet download and play it for themselves!
Commented on 2009-09-24 13:50:48
lol Now you see why Turn 10 released nothing but shots from photo mode. You know something's up when you have to resort to 'underground' means to catch gameplay clips of a RACING game

It's LEGO Forza 3!!

You guys are really looking to scratch the mods ire, aren't you?

If you want that kind of discussion, take it to Gametrailers.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (4 Hours ago)
