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.

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.

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.
