New Forza 2 screenshot, looks incredible.
And this is only at 60%!!!!
Imagine how good it'll look when finished!
This game will blow everything out og the water. Can't wait to see it at 100%!
I'm not sure at this point in time if it will be graphically better than pgr3...i would like to think so as i need a replacement to the gap that was left once i got rid of pgr3.
It is definitely nice, but I question the graphics in comparison to GT HD on the PS3. That borders on photo-realism. It doesn't appear to be a question of "completion" it appears to be a question of graphical design.
They need to work on the color black in this game, tires and such and the grass and such. Looking good for only being 60% done the cars them selves look photo real. Right now Saints Row has better looking tire's on the cars than Forza 2.
Next week there will be footage of the game instead of pics.
Looks the same as the other forza for xbox 1. Dont take this the wrong way obviously the models are higher poly, but i dont know it still looks very burnoutish to me, and it the last game played very arcady too :(. STill Xbox's best wannabe racing sim. no question.
lol. It's better than everything else. GT is the same thing every time, and still has do damage. Besides, you're a PS fanboys so your vote/comments don't even count.
detail on the car http://www.ps3portal.com/ps...
for the last gen this GT-4 engine is awsome they even compare the track to the real track imagine what will be in GT-5 engine
forza this time is kinda suks i like PGR3 look so much better but no car damage
If this was a ps3 game you guys would rip it apart but because its on the xbox360 its ok and you say its Incredible do you have low standards for the xbox360 or something if you want Incredible go download the gameplay video of RR7 that game is fast. by the way I'm new here but read the comments all the time so hey everybody.
coz the grapics looks kind last gen to me the tire wheel car detail looks bad , PGR3 look so much better than this
You're crazzy. lol Forza 2 is Incredible looking. It's has realalistic lighting and color, true to life brightness and after they work on making the rubber look next-gen it's a done deal. Maybe they should paste the enviroment in Forza like the way they do for PS games it beats drawing it. Those pics you posted are god aweful man. Forza 2 is said to be a next-gen state of the art master peice. From the reading i'v done i believe it.
GT:HD has better looking cars (higher polys) and more naturalistic lighting than Forza 2. But the environments look like they need more work and more interaction . I found a list made by Polyphony digital about all the things they want to accomplish in GT5, and it's pretty amazing what they're setting out to do (completely realistic car damage is one of them). It's cool that they've got 20 cars running on the track at once right now. Does anyone know the number of vehicles Forza 2 supports at once?
A $900 dollar game better be able to have 20 cars at once. I hope i got that right theres so many GT's i can't even keep up.. Anyways we will more than likely find out next week.
is that I'm an xbox owner and I'm happy with it but to you guys who keep bringing up PGR3 and how good it is. I was very dissapointed with PGR3, it just doesnt look right. It has too many shadows and is generally kind of dark and the reflections appeat at the wrong time they should. I would say that even Forza 1 on xbox1 looked better than PGR3. As for GT HD, it does look more photo-realistic than any other driving game out there. Now if we could get a game with GT graphics and camera angles with Forza gameplay and options that would be something special.
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/g... http://www.ps3portal.com/mo... I don't see what you're talking about TRON/#16.
The GT-HD is too dark to be Photo real. lol both pics are in the sun. I think PLII is right about Forza's rubber though. The mountains look great in GT-HD we will have to wait and see about Forza's back grounds. 60% done son.
wait till you see them in motion, cause microsoft has a knack for capturing good screenshots but once you see it in motion it just doesnt look right when compared to GT.
Better luck next time with GT5 and Forza 3.
Thats a bizzzaro comment. It's the other way around.(IN MOST CASES) What's that have to do with the argument of looking Photo real, the term usally doesn't describe Motion. The game is dull and void of color lots of PS games are like that even more so with the PS3. A console has to be able to have a wide range of color to produce photo real games and MS is king, the PS3 doesn't have the memory to have the vivid colors of real life that's why the games are either Anime looking or Dull and green. Im sure the PS2 has it's story. Sorry!.
just look at PGR3, the screenshots of it were amazing http://media.xbox360.ign.co... but when I played the game it was not the same. dont get me wrong cause i'm expecting that Forza 2 wont dissapoint.
Maybe its time for you to get a new tv buddy. On my TV it looks better than the screen shots. The brand of tv, the type of tv, the resolution you have the game set at, and the resolution of your TV makes a huge difference. Maybe you don't have your componant cable switech to HI DEF. My friend did the same thing and played the 360 for months before I showed him that he didn't switch the actual switch on the componant cable. After he did that he was Amazed...ha ha ha...I don't know why your's don't look like the screen shot...but mine surpasses it. In full motion it looks spectacular.
http://www.kotaku.com/gamin... What the hell?
The TV is displaying 4D General. we humans, our eyes simply aren't complex enough to see it, therefore all we see is a blank screen. So far only Ken Kutaragi and buddies can see it and they are hard at work making special glasses that will downconvert it to 3D so we can see it.
I'm not complaining I think it looks good. I can't complain about any game because the people who develop them are the artists, not me
YOUR statement is bizzaro, Quote: "the term USUALLY doesn't describe motion" key word being usually. FYI photo realism doesnt only apply to still pictures when it comes to computer graphics. Its so aggrevating to be insulted by a moron insinuating that i am a idiot.
That games done and isn't 60% complete. The only thing that's wrong with Forza 2 is what Pro-logic stated. So what you are saying is PG3 looks better than both GT-HD and Forza 2?. You could run in to the wall at 180 mph in PRG3. lol Forza's going to have the most detail depth in damage parts perfomance ect EVER!. Read up on it. Nothing will live up to it. YAH! DID YOU SEE THE WAY THE CHARECTOR IN THAT GAME MOVED AND FOUGHT IT WAS "PHOTO REAL". DID YOU SEE THE WAY THE CHARECTORS DANCED IN DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION, IT WAS "PHOTO REAL" LOL. WHAT EVER DUDE!. Thats FLIP MODE if i ever seen it. Take a chill pill or meds would be good to. lol MAN THAT TONY HAWK GAMES SWEET LOOK HOW "PHOTO REAL" THE SKATERS LOOK WHEN THEY SKATE. THE WAY YOU'RE CHARECTOR MOVES IN OBLIVION ISN'T REALLY "PHOTO REAL" but it looks good though.
Yeah i asked for propper damage in PGR3 and 4 and i was flamed out of the roof by the people there. They called me a burnout freak so don't expect realistic damage in the project gotham racing series ever.
so you like to watch the truman show huh? you are clearly retarded ,we are talking about three games here and they are all racing games so why are you mentioning all these other games. it funny that what you are accusing me of is exactly what you are. talk about a flip mode. I call it the way i see it because thats the way it should be so if GT looks better than PGR3 i will say it.
IF it is then Forza is real.
Forza 1 hands down from every reveiw site beat out GT4 in head to head comparissons. The only area GT4 beat Forza in was the SALES of the game. But thats to be expected when its the console with 100 million plus install base and its their premier title...But with that said...Forza got better reviews and won every comparisson. Forza 2 is set to continue that tradition and beat out the next in the GT series for the ps3. It was the best sim racing game (according to all reviewers from over 50 sites) in the last gen. Thanks Microsoft. Next Gen is here. Its now...and its 1080p and affordable. YES
"Forza is a good but not a great-looking game. Overall, Forza feels very polished in the courses, the menus, and in the overall production. The slick white menus are fast and the load times are generally pretty quick. The game is well organized, so using the interface is fun, not laborious. The intro movie is sweet looking, though it's not indicative of the in-game graphics.
The in-game graphics are also good, but not great. Compared to a number of racers, specifically GT4, Forza holds up pretty well, but direct comparisons to that lowly PS2 game (how dare I!) prove a little disappointing. First, the car models aren't as good. They're just not. The car models are again of high quality, but they're not terribly refined, they're often blocky and lack detail, and in some cases, they just don't bring out the beauty of that particular model (whether it's an RX7 or a GT Challenger). Again, they're respectable, just not brilliant.
"The art style of the backgrounds and environments isn't very photorealistic or inspired either. There are some nice trees, some interesting forested areas, a bunch of static 2D sprite people -- and the streets of NY are easily the best looking parts of the game -- but besides that, none of there areas pop out and grab you. Nothing is gorgeous or stunning. It's all just good. The game runs in 480p.
Sure, it doesn't run at 60 FPS, it doesn't have 700 cars or 50-plus tracks, and it's not Gran Turismo, but in all fairness, MGS has done a superb, bang-up job their first time out. Forza is a force to be reckoned with, out-maneuvering GT4 in several respects, and beating out everything else in the sim department on Xbox, straight out. The fact is, Forza does some things better than GT4 and some things worse, but it's a must-have game, full stop. I highly recommend it.
Me personally having owned both, I agree, they are both good at different things. GT4's biggest complaint for me is the drive on rails A.I. Forza's the low framerate and sense of speed not being very good.
post CG pic or real pic just like RealDeal or Topgamer from the past this guy post real car i mean REAL CAR (LOL)....
http://www.ps3portal.com/mo... thnks for the post this pic is awsome
Check the links in post 17 again please! thank you.

Damn, you're worse than Sony. Everybody knows those Forza 2 screens are CG. Even Microsoft said so.
Yah! those PS3 pics look real playable. Im not worried about xbox CGI lol They don't fool with movies they just tweek what the console is capable of. lol it's not like MS puts FF advent children looking cgi in PS2 hardware.
they both need to get better.
Forza 2 so far looks ALRIGHT. hope it improves in the future
http://screenshots.teamxbox... is this ingame ?
im about to laugh . lets just wait for some ingame gameplay b4 we start bashing aite peacee...
im a gamer not fanboy right now playing NBA 2K6 360 . also future owner both PSWii
Found the following quote on 1UP.com regarding GT HD - thought it was interesting...it suggests that in trying to look too real, it looked fake...
"The backgrounds look so good that there starts to be something of a disconnect between the foreground, where the action takes place, and the distant horizon. It begins to look almost painted in. The effect is similar to the way the backgrounds move in parallax scrolling 2D games. The detailed environments also lessen the impression of the cars being real and in the world. At least in the replays, their models and lighting don't feel quite like they're at the same level."
If GT4 with an updated graphics engine looks better, it really makes me wonder if they're trying to go in a another direction besides "photorealism" with Forza 2.
wow I never knew that Forza 1 got a 9.5 from IGN that's crazy, I had an Xbox and never played forza...hmm no wonder everyone was so psyched about forza 2, also this car model is good and it's an improvement from past screenshots, when this game is finished it will look great, atleast I hope so
You wan't a pat on the back. You guy's are in here because you're worried. lol #37 It's what me and a few other in this site call PlayStation paste-ing in the background lots of PS games use it. The herizon/background are often a painted wall with trails or roads cut through them or rail ways. it's the short cut Sony has been using for ages. Forza's King. You Sonyfanboys will be eating you're words in due time. MS refuses to use cgi thats light years ahead of the gameplay that's maybe one of the reasons why it was delayed. GoW, MASS EFFECT, LOST PLANET, LOST ODYSSEY, HALO-1-2-3 are just a few example of MS's new modow. WELCOM3 CHANG3 jump-in.
Here are every review averaged out for GT4 on the ps2 89%
And here is every single review for Forza on the xbox averaged out 93% with over 118 reviews. WOW. The greatest racing sim over the last few years. Only one ranked higher and it was GT3 which averaged out 1% point over Forza. Forza 2 will be huge. Many people never even tried Forza...but this time around many more will....And Forza sole over 1 million units. Thanks Microsoft.
Good find yo...well I guess that little arguments settled...lol...personally I dont like GT but only because they make you do like 3 hour races and that's totally lame
first off this is a bad screenshot of the game and from my pespective PG3 has way better graphix. Its just a bad pick trust me
Looks horrible!!Jaggies all over!!LMAO
that's cause its a screen shot, When you take pictures ingame it still shots the jaggies that are there. You won't see them in the real game cause this is a single frame, in game it's running frames.
Now I want a penny for my thoughts I just gave you, lol
Devs sure seem to be taking advantage of that dedicated eDRAM on the XBOX360 don't they?
Stop it. You'll hurt their feelings. =P
Does everyone know that Gran Turismo - HD is not an actual game. It was a tech demo. It doesn't exist. Forza 2 looks great. It looks alot better than PS3 CGI because it's REAL. Case Closed.
