Forza vs Reality

Forza vs Reality

Popular Science did a study with 2 pilots to check if Forza Motorsport was as true to life as Microsoft claimed it to be. This video shows how they did the testing and also the results. Not too bad, not too bad at all.
Update : The video is buggy, I'm reencoding it right now.
Update 2: Corrected version now online.

I watched the split screen footage a few days ago at gametrailers.com. But they didn't have this extra stuff. Thanks.

It does look pretty damn impressive in terms of graphics. Any GT fan that says this isn't anything compared to GT4 needs to be slapped with a fish.

BTW, anybody know where I can find that racing wheel used (or possibly the whole chair setup)?

But the truth is that color balance, frame rate and cars are not as good as in GT4. :) I'm not saying Forza doesn't look good - because there are some impressive details in it - but Forza just doesn't look "real". It looks more like a PC game with super-sharp shadows and all. Btw, AI cars have no shadows, which hurts the overall look of the game. GT4, on the other hand, looks kinda "organic" and believable imo...

AI cars should have shadows in the final version, AFAIK.

Hi everyone, this is my first post here since I've created an account a long (french only) time ago :)

Yes, fortunately the AI cars will have real time shadows in the final version. Check this video interview with very nice ingame scenes (which show AI car shadows):

the wheel is the fanatec speedster forceshock.
it should be released at the same time as the game.

I hope they will be sell the whole chair setup too. That looks too sweet.

As far as i know, the setup think has already been announced... So you can purchase it at some point.

But its pricey.. =)

I would pay for it. It looks sweet.
