Holy. Fucking. Shit.

Kazunori Yamauchi should just an hero. This is the final nail in the GT series' coffin.

The physics are bang-on. With all aids off, it's as real as anything I've ever played. Close to iRacing. I'm dead serious.

AND the menu music sounds like the Mass Effect map music. How can it get any better? Oh, yeah, this is just the demo.

It would get better if there were some fucking Porsche's in the game. Does Forza 4 actually do things like raise spoilers and stuff like PGR2 used to do?

Blame Porsche then; it's entirely their fault. They signed a fucking indefinite-length contract with EA (who publishes the NFS series), and EA can dole out sublicenses as they please. They decided that since F3 did better than NFS: Shift and Shift 2, that they'd be butthurt and not allow Turn 10 to use Porsche's branding and cars.

Yeah, actually. I watched the spoiler raise and lower on a SL63 Black Series through a turn during one of the races I did.

Likewise. The good news is my "budget" now has half the costs as what it used to, so more money for Jäger and Forza. \o/

As good as it is though, I feel like it isn't a new game, per se. A very similar feel. Graphics look nicer, there are some new cars, but overall it seems like the same. I hear there are a lot of similar tracks too. Too bad they couldn't have made this a $30, hell even a $40, upgrade instead of selling it as a new $60 dollar game.

True, but to me, that's just not as satisfying.

Played through it. Physics are great, very natural if a little too forgiving at hard difficulty, graphics look dandy. I feel like the AI got a lot stupider compared to 3 but admittedly I just played with AI difficulty set to "easy" because I was focusing on other aspects of the game.

Try them on "Hard." Seriously. Then try to pass.
clarkma5
Not talking about difficulty, just talking about how they are to race against. On easy at least they drive on rails and bump into you like morons. I remember Forza 3 AI actually being good to race against...will have to try again on hard I guess.

On hard, they're better than on par with Forza 3. They will defend their line and late brake and stuff. It's a good time.

I'm guessing it will be on PC too?

I struggled on "hard" difficulty also. They definitely stepped it up from F3.

So I've got the full version of the game and I'm confused by the menu system...

I'm starting the "world tour" mode and I want to change the AI difficulty as well as make the announcer stop telling me things. I can't figure out how to do that! Also, the world tour mode keeps auto-upgrading my cars to be at a competitive level and I want it to quit doing that. Looked through the menus and I can't find anything sad.gif

Ok since everybody has covered what they love about the game and for the most part I agree I will say I was let down by the vehicle modeling, very disappointing considering they made the same mistakes on forza 3. I was also quite annoyed when they released the ultimate edition of forza 3 since it was like a big fuck you by Turn 10 to all the fans of the game. I may well get this game at some point but there is no way im paying full price.
clarkma5
Annoyingly you can't choose AI difficulty outside of the event list...so that means no World Tour if you want decent AI opponents. That's shitty.

Also, where is the tire temp icon in Forza 4? It appears to be gone. Damn that was so useful in 3...

Still a really good game, but these issues are really leaving me scratching my head. Seem like completely stupid oversights.

Got to play it for the first time this week. Completely blown away by the sheer awesomeness of it. Admittedly, most of my evening was spent going split-screen with my friends on the 'Ring, but awesome nonetheless. Jag D-Type, sexiest car ever.

I haven't played BF3 but I've done some glorious marksmanship work with the M95 on Bad Company 2.

I got BF3. It's really awesome. Extremely addicting. I suck at flying shit though

How fucking satisfying was that? I can only imagine... the bullet drop on that shit is hard to master.


Edit: my longest is only 207m. I blow.

I rented BF3, as all I want is the single player campaign.

Good story, good gameplay. I'm pretty satisfied.

i found single player to be extremely dry and full of moments ripped from COD games.
Bjorn
^The story was well done I thought (BF's strong point) but the gameplay was standard to the point of being boring. I completed the single payer campaign in an evening, afternoon and another part of an evening.

The tank mission was kinda cool, but not enough to make the whole game.

We're renovating our house, so I don't have network access on my Xbox ATM. No idea how the multiplayer would be.

I'm hoping MW3 offers something different . . . a single player campaign you can actually invest in. But I'm not holding my breath.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is the current winner for good single player stuff in my books.
