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
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!!!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
Forza MotorSport 3 is the best yet! It has great grafics and sounds. The cars are kol and the tracks look realistic. People may argure that the new Need for Speed Shift is the best racing game out there but I think Forza is much better. The online play is really good, and ceareer mode is better than last year. I like to pick the fastest cars on the game when I'm racing my friends. It's cool when you can puase the game and take a picture of the scene that is showing. The rewind system is really helpful, you can rewind the race if you amke a mistake or crash. Bring a friend over and start a race and have your friend drive the opposite way! Its cool to see the two cars crash into one another! The crashes in the game look real as could be. This is the best racing game of the year!!
This game is way more simulation and physics then any Gran Turismo game. Do you remember in Forza 2 you could see real time Telemetry while you were racing? or do you not even know what telemetry is? Gran Turismo doesn't even have a physics engine to make it capable of calculating real time telemetry. It doesn't have end of race telemetry either. It doesn't actually have any physics and bouncing off the walls and other cars with no consequence proves that. In my opinion, Gran Turismo games always have felt like i was racing on cars with Plastic Tires, where as in Forza i race in cars with Rubber Tires. And the sounds in GT games of your tires sound terrible and not realistic. They have been the same sounds since GT1 on PSX. I can tell you that Subaru Imprezas in Gran Turismo drive nothing like they do in real life, i know cause i drive a real one every day. In Forza AWD cars drive and react like they do in real life. And people who are comparing Need For Speed Shift to Forza 3, why? Need for Speed games aren't even the same racing genre and should not even be compared. Compare Shift to GRiD cause those are very similar, in fact Shift is a total rip off of GRiD. BUT WOWOWOW. They made the graphics so much better from Forza 2 to Forza 3. I find it truely amazing graphically. I didn't know Xbox could power such a beautiful racer. Can't wait til tomarrow!!!!!
