Forza Motorsport 3
i am one of the most hardcore ps3 fans a person will ever meet and i only say this in regards to how great this game is... forza 3 is better than gt5. while gt5 is much prettier due to the higher quality system that is the ps3 and its great HD capabilities, it is very boring. for a person who loves good racing sims customizing cars is half the fun of the game. forza 3 delivers greatly in terms of customization where as gt5 has virtually none. while some super critics sit there and scrutinize the little details wrong with forza 3 like the lack of detail in cockpit view and half of the rearview mirror being chopped off, it doesnt take away from the gameplay whatsoever. people argue that gt5 has double the cars of forza 3. i guarantee those people will never at least 300-400 of those cars on average. i would rather fully customize 400-500 cars rather than be able to just drive 1000. in the end it just is preference on whether you just like to drive or customize what you drive and for me forza 3 is good stuff in every way.
Best racing game ever!!!!!!!
Let me start off by saying what a great selling point for Microsoft to put this in the Elite Bundle. Now to the game....Forza 3 is truely amazing the graphics are absolutely awesome from the rolling mountains to the cystal blue streams. Gameplay is also the best I've seen ever in a racing game. I usually play racing games third person but I love playing this in first person the viewing from first person is truely realistic. As far as the sound I have mine hooked up to surround sound and I can hear exactly where a car is coming from whether its on my right or left and how close they are. Every car has their own sound you can even hear the turbo and superchargers hitting. The controls are very easy. My 7yr old plays the game without a hitch. The menus are very easy to read and use. Theres even a feature where you can put your car up for auction and buy other cars up for auction. You can also gift cars to friends if you choose to. You can even customize your own graphics and use them on your car or sell them on the marketplace. Bottom line is the game is truely amazing if you love racing games of the past youll fall in love with this at first play.
Forza Motorsport 3
i got this game a week ago and i loved it from the start.considering the game was from 2009 it seemed like it was a 2011 game just cause of the graphics and gameplay there was a 2010 audi in the game so that was nice to see.i loved the game everything about it the only thing that i did not like about this game was that you could not create online public lobby's you had to create a private lobby then invite other players that you have played before in the past since i could not find this game on new i had to get it pre owned so i did but then i figured out i had to pay for the benchmark track which is a track that is really long and has all kind of different configurations i think about 6 or 7 i had to pay 5 bucks for that which sucked for me cause i really did not want to pay it but at the end i did even though i did not have to.i do recommand this game for auto racing fans it was a blast playing and if you thought this game was great then wait untill you play forza 4 even better you players will see when you get it
Better Than GT5!
This is an awesome game! I've been loving the Forza series ever since the first one came out. Sure, Gran Turismo was one the first racing games I've played, but I'm liking this series even more and I can't wait for the Forza 4!
The Best Racing Game Available Till Forza 4 Drops
This game started the online revelation, with auctions, storefronts, girfting items such as cars, vinyls, paint schemes, and more. Forza 3 has a lot to offer any gamer. With competitive mutliplayer to fun (tag style) multiplayer, season racing, event racing, the ability to customize any car from rims, rim color, rim size, paint color, vinyl schemes with abilities to to make your own. For instance I make License Plates on Forza 3, authentics lp's also! The storfront provides a place of adverrtisement and a place of purchase to other players if you have something they want. The landscape in the game is rich in color, detail and all around the graphics are amazing for a game made in 2009. With over 300+ cars and the ability to download more, new/old and cars that the game didnt originally have. You can purchase cars new or used, online is the only place you find them used and sometimes get a really good deal on a car. This game will provide hours of entertainment with everything it has to offer. Hands down this game is better than Gran Turismo 5 and NFS: Shift Unleashed which both came out over a year after Forza 3 did, meaning those games could top Forza 3, but stil can not touch Forza 3! This game is THE BEST RACING GAME AVAILABLE ON CONSOLE OR PC UNTIL FORZA 4 COMES OUT!!!!! I highly recommend this game to anyone that likes customizable racing games!!!!!
REVIEW PART 1 : GRAPHICS. The graphics are very sharp, the frame rate is a constant 64 FPS, the reflections are pristine, and the attention to detail is highly noticeable. REVIEW PART 2 : GAME PLAY. Forza 3 allows you to race in a huge campaign mode/career mode, and it has OVER 400 cars for you to customize and buy. There's a full damage model for every car, and the game play can be slightly repetitive at times, if you don't buy new cars and/or customize the current car you are using. REVIEW PART 3 : ONLINE PLAY. Online play is pretty much just like any other racing sim, except if you're an XBL Gold member, you can sell you cars online, buy other people's cars online, download other people's car design templates, and gift cars to people on your friends list. REVIEW PART 4 : SOUND. The sound in this game is adaptive, for example, when you upgrade your engine, your car sounds noticeably different from when you had the default/stock engine. OVERVIEW. : Forza 3 is perfect for hardcore AND casual gamers who want a fun racing experience.
good, not great.
Let me start by saying that as far as racing games go this is a very good effort.There are however some elements that need improvement.First,some of the tracks look as though they were ported over from forza 2 and not upgraded(eg. laguna seca)this track looks almost 2D compared to nordschleife or the la sarthe circuits.I also wish you could choose the cars you race against in some races because even if you change the opponent settings to the hardest setting, cars that should easily beat you are too easily overtaken and beaten.Another weak point are the replays.They have the same angles all the time and some shots are useless in that they show little or no interesting views.One major flaw is the replays, in that they show lots of game integration issues(ie. clipping,pop-up).It really takes away from the realism of the game.In conclusion this is a must have if you love racing games.With a little more fine tuning this could be the best out there.
Wow an wow again.
Forza never fails to impress. Wow to every aspect of this game, i was expecting a lot and still it surpasses the highest expectations. A must have even if you don't like car games. This is a pefect 10 all around. I have played halo 3 , Modern warfare 2, and Bioshock 2 and still i find this game Forza motorsports 3 very addicting and tons of replay value. i even stopped playing MW2 because this game is so good. i hope this review helps and trust me Forza deserves every dolllar they make. This game even managed the impossible. It had my wife, a hater of video games, on it for hours tring to create some cool decals for my cars. She even manage to sell a couple and make me some money. She never likes my game let alone sit with me for 6 hours hooked on this game. A must buy hands down.
How do you spell amazing??
Forza 3 is by far the greatest racing game i have ever played. The graphics are unbelievable, the tracks are the greatest, and the cars are very diverse. This game has everything and then some. The racing is challenging now with more difficulty to choose from, with more bonus. Also there is the new feature called the store front. Where people can sell tuning/painting designs for the lazy or not so creative people. Now, with every game comes some difficulties or problems. First, the interior view doesn't show the driver shifting with manual transmission or even pressing the clutch. Second, Cars are awarded during random times during racing which can be annoying. Lastly, The whole game is really plain and white. The menus can get annoying and Loading is an issue because it takes really long. These problems are not very important because this game is all around the best, but be prepared for a little issue with some things.
a racers dream
this is the best racing game i have ever played. if you're a gran turismo fan this game is for you but if you're a need for speed underground or midnight club fan, then this game is not for you. its much better than the first or second. more cars, a better variety of parts to tune your car and more tracks to race on than the first or second. the graphics are much better and the details of the cars are also better. the thing that i like the most is that you can choose from 400 different cars and actual tracks from around the world. another thing thats great is how well you can customize your cars. the paint, the graphics, and how you can tune your motor the way you would want it to be tuned. overall the whole look of your dream car you can do it with this game. i highly recommend this game and if you're a racing fan its well worth your money.
