Awesome. Although some bodykits I would like to tone down on the extremeness. Hopefully theres autosculpture to modify the widebodies a bit.

Okay, I think we got it. Pics look great.

Now please EA stuff them somewhere, where the sun does not shine and give me a demo!

i wish i could combine these racings games into one. I'd love to take GT5's prem car models, mix them with forza's handling/austion house/community art, and throw in shifts awsome helmet cam and sound effects

I hope forza 4 pushes alot for this combination...as as much as i think Shift 2 looks great i just know it will play like the previous

Yeah would be great if Forza 4 was aimed a bit more like Shift with the great feeling of racing however i fully expect it to be right in the middle of Shift's racing and GT'5 driving and car collecting style.

Shift had some great presentation ideas, but the overall gameplay was still just not nearly as good as it could have or should have been. I'm not gonna get hyped for this game but I'll certainly at least rent the game as I love this genre so much and just in case the game ends up fixing all the gameplay issues that really hurt the first game.

Sounds fantastic, sounds like they are focussing on exciting gameplay rather than mundane car collecting, racing against AI that is non existent and having to constantly grind to get car's.

Awesome images, thanks Gamersyde.

Looking forward to a hands on preview.

Interesting read, but in all the pics, they are just using the xbox360 controller and not eg Fanatec or G25/G27 wheel with clutch.
How are these racers going to be the judge of anything if they are trying to compare real life racing with a steering wheel and a game using a xbox controller. Almost makes there testing data invalid.

Shift games can hardly be considered sim racers...

    Megido @Sdarts: i tjink ive been pretty consistent in saying the books are better than the games. I dont know why you even directed that at me :) (3 Hours ago)

    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (7 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (7 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (7 Hours ago)
