Some new Images of Forza 2 taken off a TV, Looks very Impressive, Awesome damage on that BMW.
looks awesome, lighting looks crisp. Too bad their off screen
Well done for only being 60% complete.
Even the devs admit they have a lot of work to do graphically... but as said elsewhere, compare Forza(1)'s demo to the actual game- a night and day difference. The same's probably happening here. Only it already looks great, and the big coat of polish to go on it from here will make it incredible.
Wow i just can,t wait to get my hands on this game, just a big wow, this is why GT HD won,t come near forza 2. I hope they release the full game march 2007. WOW WOW IM OUT
what does World of Warcraft have to do with this game? lol anyway, i think this game will be a better game than GTHD, because GTHD is just a polished version of an old game.
I hope the framerate ends up at 60fps
What are these people talking about? Completly s**t!
seriously, i was thinking the same thing. What the hell are those screenshots. A couple of the screens are ok. The damage is complete crap. Sorry but the damage is CRAP, it's not even damage. Its a bumper that's snapped off. Forza always has this really bad damage physics, just so they can say the cars have 'damage'. If you drove that BMW 150mph into a wall in that game, are you going to get a 'burnout' style crash? Nope. The front bumper will snap off, maybe the paint will scuff up...it's crap I have to take into consideration that these pics were taken from a tv, but it doesn't look like anything spectacular at all. It's not making me say, 'Wow, i've never seen graphics that good before'. Whereas i did with GTHD. And Forza is supposed to be one of those games that displays great graphics and really shows wha the 360 is capable of. ps. i think the gameplay of Forza 2 will be better than GTHD. However i think GT5 will slaughter Forza 2. But this article is about screenshots, so thats why i was talking about graphics
That like saying Forza 3 will own GT5. Gt6 will Forza 3, Forza 4 will own GT6... Get it?
maybe i didn't protray my thoughts properly i meant, i think GT5 will slaughter Forza 2 in terms of gameplay. And of course graphics. By the way GT5 will include car damage. And whenever Polyphony Digital want to do something in Gran Turismo, they want to do it perfectly. So expect the damage in Gran Turismo 5 to be out of this world. Not just a front bumper snapping off Bundle that with online play for GT5, the photo-realistic graphics, the hundreds of incredibly detailed cars (That's based on previous gran turismo's. Why would they not do that for GT5?) Personally i don't think the gameplay for GTHD will be great at all. Purely because its not a proper GT. Its just a taster for the ps3. There's a reason why Gran Turismo is the benchmark of all racing games and its held in such high esteem. It's the real driving simulator and it will be out of this world
"whenever Polyphony Digital want to do something in Gran Turismo, they want to do it perfectly" -Like the 100% completion glitch in GT2? -Like the 2D background in photo mode? -That they've never gotten the "big" manufacturers (Porsche, Lamborghini...)? -Like the lack of oft-promised features (drag racing)? -Like how the AI has sucked since GT1 and basically hasn't ever gotten any improvement thus far? I love Gran Turismo, too. But they have some massive problems they need to work on.
Where are you getting your information about GT5 from? That game is probably over a year away from release. All you fanbots talk like you have crystal balls. Stop drinking the Sony kool-aid and base your comment on what we have today, not something you had a wet dream about last night. Wake up.
Yep I agree, just like GTHD is complete sh#t. I am also blind. Both games look about equal in the graphics dept when you look at the game play videos. But Forza has better game play for me than GT. But I will be willing to try both to find out.
Guys its just amazing ..if this is in development my god is this game gonna look cool ...i love my Xbox 360
I like these screen more then the video footage from this morning
What's #5.3's point, GT5 will be a great game what's that have to do with the greatness of Foza 1-2 & 3?. Whoops!. I did the same thing.
You can,t say GT5 will be better than forza 2 because you havent seen gt5 in action has yet, but some dumb sony fanboys keep saying GT HD will be better than forza 2 which is dumb - but in the end im planning to get Forza 2 and GT5 both got difference which i like. IM OUT.
I actually said before i think that Forza 2 will have better gameplay than GTHD, yeah... The reason i think GT5 will slaughter Forza 2 in gameplay is because it will have all the features that differentiated Forza from Gran Turismo, such as damage/online and so forth. Apparently with GTHD, they were also making the AI more 'human like'. Plus, GT5 will be on bluray, so theres much more room for including loads of highly detailed cars and tracks. Hundreds and hundreds of cars if GT4 is anything to go by. And this is Gran Turismo. The cars will be incredibly detailed from looks to how they perform and how you can tune them. Gran Turismo 5 is going to be a big improvement on GT4, i just know. Because they have the power of the ps3 to use, the space of the bluray disc, and an online system that actually works. Forza 2 is limited to the DVD still, which does not help whether you like it or not. These type of games are the classic example of why you need bigger disc space. You can't just have 50 cars on 1 disc, another 50 on another and so forth. Sorry, i got my bets on GT5
You proof yourself utterly dumb. You need to compare games which are released in the same timeframe. GT5 spring 2008. GT4 HD & Forza 2 the end of the year/beginnin 2007. Forza 2 will own GT4 HD which is it's competitor. GT5 you haven't seen anything of it yet. And Forza 3 will release in 2008 also. Which will own GT5 for sure. Look this up Forza 1 was equal as good as the 4th generation of GT or even better as many premier gamemagazines said. The first try of a game on par with a 4rd attempt of the competition. Get that line up? Forza 2 will be a quantum leap on Forza 1. GT4 HD is just a graphical smugged up PS2 version. Nothing more improved really. So it'll loose miserably from Forza 2. If Forza 1 is on par with the 4th gen GT and Forza 2 will be a quantum leap on the games, then GT could only catch up at GT8 if the progression in the games is like that slow. That's about the time when Forza 4 will be out and GT8 is pwned with double the number. GT5 will be facing Forza 3, that's in the same timeframe. Now we all had enough from your crystal ball GT5 predictions based on nothing, so I gave you my futuristic look. Only thing we can compare is GT4 HD and Forza 2. ANd GT4 HD will be slaughtered
here's the thing, i'm a fan of well done replays so damage is not important to me because when i watch the replays i want to enjoy the beauty of the cars, i dont want to see it all banged up. damage is meaningless to me. ok now honestly im probably the most unbiased poster here. why do i say this. because even though i own an xbox360 and am rooting for microsoft i will say that the graphics in those screenshots dont look all that impressive for what is supposed to be a "next gen" system. only a very slight improvement over Forza 1 does not make it next gen. but im hoping that the game looks as good the forza demo released in the video montage posted here two days ago. makes me wonder if the demo was pre-rendered. here is the demo, the first game to appear is forza. now that is next gen http://www.xboxyde.com/stre...
Whats you're gamer tag. maybe i missuderstood alot of you're posts. Sorry for thinking you where a Sony fanboy. So what is it.
TheAnomalySOS and i have only played 3 games oblivion, GTR3 (which i didnt like), and ridge racer which i hated
Who knows what happend ,Too Human also had different builds to make the show ect. Funny I also hated Oblivion and PG3 one and two and i can't stand RR.
you misunderstood i dont hate oblivion i love oblivion, i didnt like PGR3 , but i hated ridge racer . im a fan of racers but so far the 2 racing games ive tried have not been good. but i know one racer im going to like because i loved it on dreamcast when it was called tokyo extreme racer 2 and thats import tuner. and maybe forza depending on how the graphics are.
shadow, just be quiet. you dont have a crystal ball that sees into the future about gt5. just be quiet.
Yesterday I thought to myself "GT HD is the best looking racing sim I have ever seen." These our the first screens that actually show Forza will most likely equal it. I had seen alot of garbage. Not only do these screens impress but they are actual GAMEPLAY!!! Not a trailer! That is really what I love about MS they are honest and straight forward they'll show actual gameplay on a game that is 6 months away and it still looks great.
What does the 360 use for the trees and grass. The trees in this game look real , much better than the trees in GT HD ,but it's only the trees and grass buildings in GT HD look photorealistic at least in the trailers and screenshots. So what's up with trees and the 360?
What if for GT 5 Sony charges for each car and track like they're doing with GT HD. All that disc space won't matter then, huh? By the way, they announced at X06, that Forza 2 will come with 300 cars on disc. That wasn't a typo. 300 cars. Not 50. Watch the press conference.
is a f*cking moron.
It looks so damn good!
I don't know why so many people will compare Forza to GT, might as well compare NFS with GT as well. If any game on the 360 is to compare with GT, it's PGR.
Forza and GT are driving sims, PGR is not a driving sim
Do somekind of research before you make yourself look retarded. Woops! too late.
Unimpressive to say the least. The CG trailer looked better. Even GT:HD seems to have a leg up.
zOMG, the obviously CG, pre-rendered demo vid looks better than the product!? NO WAY! We need to call the industry- if gamers start to realize the difference they might start to get skeptical about CG trailers!!! Heh. And to note: This game is actually running, live, and can be played. GT:HD... not so much. Meaning again, refer to the above about CG.
outta the gran tourismo series graphically!!!!! another double-barrell cartridge blast from MS straight to sony's heart!!!!!! polyphony who?????????
Simple as that. IM OUT
I like the last picture especially the vegetation is done very well, and the car too is very beautiful. Im looking forward to get my sweety hands on Forza Motorsport and the wheel and show of my nooby driving skill online
graphics from this game.how many cars will be on the road?will weather play a factor?will damage actually effect your car and not just be crappy body change.toca race driver three looks as good as this.racing gthd looks as good as this.and that's an old looking game.these games should look like car commercials where the car is driving down the coast and you have this great bacground and the tires are going over wet asphalt.i've played every race game since night driver and turbo,and this looks like a joke.2nd gen game?looks like launch game.the first game dropped to less than $20 dollars real fast.they need(developers)to step up.
nothing special...nothing special
I wouldn't read too much into these screens; graphically Forza 2 is still very early in development. I get the impression reading developer interviews and reports on forzamotorsport.net that most of their effort so far has been about getting the game running so the physics guys can get to work on fine tuning the handling characteristics. Think about it. Do the graphics team put all their effort into building a fantastic graphics engine from the outset - slowing up development and holding back the whole team. Or, do they create a functional engine quickly, get the game up and running and allow the physics, audio and design teams to be cracking on with their jobs while they fine tune the graphics. Have faith guys, this is a big title for Microsoft, do you really think they will fail to meet the high standards they set themselves with the first game? One thing we can be sure of is that Forza 2 with boast incredibly realistic physics modelling and will provide a much more realistic simulation experience than the Gran Turismo team will ever be able to deliver.
When in reality they just lied about saying that the 360 games will look better then PS3 games in considering how much total floating points the PS3 has over the 360 which it can't topple that now they just lied about that and you call them "honest" lol you my friend have alot to learn about MS they even trying to do what Sony did in the first place when in there own words saying that games wouldn't look good even on 1080p and now look at what there doing thier going back in thier own words and eating the words that they said in the past! and thats not what I call honest.
but so far this game is not getting up to the hype 360 fans had tried to give to it, i am not saying that the game is not good, but it is trying to compete with GTHD and not even GT5.
