New Forza 2 vid.
No fanboy comments yet? I am sure that some one will come and bash this game.
Can't believe this games only 60% complete. This is going to be big and will bring more people in the gaming world just as the first one did. I know plenty of people that did not buy a Xbox untill Forza came out.
*** BASH ALERT - BASH ALERT ***
I think the course is Tsukuba, but I can't really tell. Here ya go bladestar. Kaz Yamauchi called me this morning and said, "Nice try; Forza has been putting forth a decent effort. What with all the things they borrowed from Polyphony and all - it better look good! But there's still only 1 Real Driving Simulator".
Will that suffice as a fanboy comment or do you still think I should throw away all of my Gran Turismo's; and wait for Forza???
What I'm Playing Now:
Gran Turismo 4
in an '05 TommyKaira ZZII (sweet)
This is for real. My older brother bought a PS1, and it came with a demo game that included Gran Turismo. I fell hard for the game so much that I went out that same day and bought a PS1 for myself along with the game. I've loved the series ever since. My only reason for buying a PS2 was for Gran Turismo 3, and my only reason for buying a PS4 still remains Gran Turismo. It is without a doubt for ME, the best game of all time. I've bought every single one on launch day with the exception of the first one. I bought Forza for the xbox but sorry guys it just didn't do anything for me so I returned it. I still play GT4 on a more than regular basis, and will continue to do so until the next one comes.
I'm hooked on drifting.......It's the best! and thank you for reading my rant.
I welcome bubbles :) .....hahahahaha
Dude, no doubt. I really am not trying to disrespect anyone, but
I C A N N O T imagine how many hours of my life I've spent playing this crazy game. Of course I'm talking about a college experiment gone mad - "Gran Turismo".
Fu+n ridiculous. Just because I'm a little tired and don't feel like typing an essay right now, I'll keep it short in regard to my last rampage with this game, because I could talk for days about this rotten game. It was the summer of 2004 and I had just bought GT-4 with the L-Tech wheel. I went over to my cousin's house and basically camped out there for about 2 months (he's a fanatic too). All we did was jam on two screen / two game sessions via LAN and single plays - everyday (baked to death). It was exhausting. Circuit de La Sarthe I & II for 24 hueres du Le Mans. 24 hours dude!! And we didn't direct either! No way - We were on the wheels shiftin' & ROCKIN! We even went shopping for special wooden tables for our "dashboard" setups. It was awesome. I still play way too much, but haven't had sessions like those in a while. I mean people would come over and ask to play, but we really didn't want to get off and ususally didn't. It really pisses my girlfriend off now when she sees me fire it up, so I have to sneak in little sessions now like a freakin' addict. Like I said, Fu+n ridiculous. I believe other games actually pay "it" homage by designing like, kind, and quality games after GT. This has to be awfully flattering to Kaz and crew. They are simply OBSESSED with cars. Their lives are poured into every drop of the game and you can feel it from the license tests, to the 172nd lap at Suzuka. And as much time as he and his crew spend on the "Gran Turismo" series - - their just making things considerably worse for me!! I dread GT-5. I mean my girlfriend is kinda hot, but....LOL
What I'm Playing Now:
Gran Turismo 4
@Fuji Speedway 2005 GT
in a '96 NISMO 400R [Photo Mode]
oh yeah...Bubbles -wee..!!!!
this game is starting to shape up well,im guessing the damage system is working out after all.
But Forza 2 is definitely shaping up. The damage didn't look quite as extensive as one would expect, but I think it's good enough. Especially since GT has none right now (sigh-). I can't imagine how embarressing it would be to have your friends literally see how bad of a driver you are. Missing bumper, only one rearview mirror, etc.
BTW, when I say the damage could be a little more extensive, I'm actually referring to the windows and body frame. It would kind of suck trying to drive with cracked/shattered windows, but it would definitely add to the realism. (or maybe Burnout's spoiled me) It's a good start though. =]
i know what you mean that it could be more extensive... but the developers have said that the user is able to adjust how much damage is actually done, because damage affects drivability... so if they put damage on full then the damage will be much more severe... this was probably on medium-ish. But i guess we'll know for sure when the game come's out.
The windscreen\windows do get shattered when its set on "simulation damage" that was said by the devloper in a Q&A interview which was posted here over a month ago.
Anything else you want to pick??
Thanks for the heads-up. =]
I will buy Forza 2 and also have the Xbox 360 Wireless Racing wheel.
Physicswise GT does'nt stand a chance, Forza has a much better driving feel to it. Gran Turismo has a lot of cars and nice graphics but not much more. I mean you can't even customize the look of the car to any extent, and no damage?! I borrowed my friends PS2 just to play GT4 and got disappointed right away. Once you find a way to cheat your way through races in order to get big cash, the fun ends. And most cars - compared to Forza - feel like they have the same physics. I'd have quality over quantity any day.
The general consensus seems to be that GT4 had better physics and graphics than Forza, and after playing Forza I can confidently back that statement up. Forza 1 seemed like a decent effort (especially for a first try), but it didn't quite stand up to the GT series. It might've been due to the hardware though since Xbox sucked at floating point compared to PS2 (which is essential for physics calculations).
Now that we're on more capable hardware though I think the GT team needs to step it up. I did see the previous comment about damage levels and it would be better if GT5 allowed people to choose either arcade-style damage or realistic damage, the latter allowing for cars to literally wreck and smash to pieces during a race.
That's true, the PS2 certainly had better graphics and more power than the Xbox. Try comparing Rallisport Challenge 2 with GT4 and you'll see for certain that the PS2 and GT4 really was better in every way. I mean Rallisport looked like crap and had no physics to talk about...
Xbox>ps2...in power of course.
Make no mistake about it, Polyphony will go out all guns blazing to make GT5 a better overall experience than this and vice versa with the Forza boys. Past history has shown from GT previews, that the final release is way better than earlier previews, screenshots, movies etc etc, and anyone who can remember the early GT3 movies will heartily agree. Either way both game will no doubt be fantastic, as for which will be the better, not one of us on here will know until BOTH are in the shops. I have my own thoughts on what i THINK will be the better but, ill stay quiet until both are available.
Could you please explain your general census? ha ha ha...You lie so much its getting ridiculous. If you total all the reviews for GT4 and Forza 1.... Forza 1 totally beats out GT4 in every area. Reviews from over 100 sources buddy. So what general census are you talking about? Ps3 forums? ha ha ha...
Fact #1 Forza totally outscored GT4 on ALL reviews combined. Not even close buddy.
Fact #2 Forza 2 not even being halfway done...already looks much better than anything shown for GT on the ps3.
I played both Forza and GT and the only thing GT had over Forza was the amount of cars. But 80% of the cars in GT4...were buckets that no one would drive in the game anyway. Just overkill. Forza on the other hand...cut out the cars no one cares about and put in all the really cool cars...Thanks Microsoft.
Fact #1: Gran Turismo is still the premier driving simulator. Gran Turismo has had 4 installments, whose aggregate rankings according to gamerankings are 95, 93, 94, and 89. Forza has only had one installment, which got a review of 93. Fewer people played Forza than played Gran Turismo. Gran Turismo is still king of the hill when it comes to racing games.
Fact #2: Forza better be more than halfway done if it's going to make the expected Q1 release date. Gran Turismo 5, on the other hand, is coming in 2008, so it's not even close to being done. If you want to compare Forza 2 to GT HD, well that makes about as much sense as comparing GT4: Prologue to the original Forza.
Fact #3: There is no point arguing with you because you're just a mindless fanboy.
And one last thing: Why do you always agree with every comment you make? Are you trying to deceive others or deceive yourself into thinking everyone agrees with you?
BTW the reason more ppl have player GT is because they have 4 installments.
++++ Call me crazy, but EVERY TIME "top gamer" posts something he marks it "agreed". Now, if that's not reaching I don't know what is. If you like something dude - just roll with it. Just don't try to convince the rest of us with all of your over the top hype, your little "links" and over abundance of irrelevant and biased misinformation . You'll be more respected that way dude. We are all capable of making our own decisions without your devicive opinions and "on-the-fly" stats and analysis. We know better my man. Peace.

The GT series has gone downhill. Every game has been getting lower and lower scores by reviewers. It would be safe to assume their next one will be lower as well. Forza 1 was released in the same time frame as GT4 and beat it head to head by every review source. Nuff said. Cry and complain but the facts remain the same. Why does that bother you so? The truth can't be changed. Grow up and stop calling people names buddy. Its a quick way to loose your bubbles. Be a gamer. Not a flamer. I can't wait for November to be here.
Can you explain how scores of 95, 93, 94, 89 indicates a steady decline in quality? More people played GT4 than Forza, more people have played GT games than Forza games, more people are looking forward to the next GT game than the next Forza game, and for these reasons I believe GT is still the top driving simulator. If Forza can beat it again, then that might change. Until then, GT is still top of the heap.
And stop agreeing with your own posts!
Only one forza game and 4 GT games. The only reason people think GT is better is because it's being around longer and it's, in most cases, the only thing they've played. I played GT all the time but once i played forza there was no going back.
If we went to war with Japan...Who would you support?
Them or Us?
Well we are entering in a console war. Japanese people think they are smarter than us. We think we are smarter than them. Which side will you take with your wallets?
Will you support made in the USA or made in Japan? Sure both consoles have parts made in both countries. But the 360 is USA's brainchild and Ps3 is Japans. I support both consoles personally. But me being from North America...my heart is with the home team.
Its like the olympics...Who lives in America but roots for the japanese basketball team?
I'm just giving food for thought. Don't take it too seriously and start flaming me. I believe in a free market and society. But what baffles me is how there could be any American. US citizen who doesn't support our own Company. Microsoft is Us. Microsoft offered years back to pay Americas Debt. Microsoft gives high paying jobs to US citizens. Microsoft gives more to charities than any other company. Microsoft made a console by gamers for gamers. Microsoft is the American Success story. What American ain't proud? Honestly.
P.S. You just explained how every GT game has gradually dropped in its scores. What kind of question is that? And all 4 games were from the playstation to the playstation 2. It went from 95 to high 80's thus a decline in scores. Is that hard to understand? And you have made it clear what your opinion is. Its just too bad that over 100 review sites disagree with you buddy. And yes more people bought GT4. Thats all and good. But the over 1 million gamers who had the lucky oppurtunity to play forza...were able to play the best current Rated racing sim to date. Them lucky xbox owners. And If GT4 didn't sell more than Forza...that would be a major problem for Sony. I mean its their flagship highest selling first part game. And sony has 100 million gamers as a base.
What I found to be rather interesting...Is GT4 didn't sell as much as Halo 2. But yet Sony's install base is over 4 times that of MS's. WOW. First party against first party. MS's wins that war in the last gen. I'm not talking about ps1 games. I'm talking about sony's premier first party game in recent years on the ps2 compared to MS's recent first party game in recent years. 24 million base to 100 million base. But yet Halo 2 out sells GT4. WOW. Can you feel the momentum building into this next gen? I do. Thanks Microsoft.
I didn't explain how they've been continuously dropping in scores, I explained how one of them was about 4 points lower than it's predecessors. If they had been continuously dropping in scores then Gran Turismo 3 wouldn't have scored higher than 2, would it?
GT4 wasn't as good as it could have been because it lacked online (really stupid to not include it) and damage on the cars, and GT5 is set to add those two features. But we'll see what game comes out on top. Personally, my money's still on GT5.
And get your numbers straight, GT4 sold over 10 million copies, while Halo 2 has sold around 8 million. And GT3 sold as much as Halo and Halo2 combined.
And stop saying Thanks Microsoft. All that tells people is "I'm a fanboy." If they weren't trying to make a profit and just in this to make people happy, then you can thank them. Personally, I would never thank Microsoft, Nintendo, or Sony, unless they did something completely altruistic.
I'm not even going to spend a lot of time commenting on your jingoistic opening rant. I but game consoles based on my personal preference in games, not on some warped "them against us" anti-Japanese mentality.
AND STOP AGREEING WITH YOUR OWN COMMENTS!
Yes I am an American Citizen, but:
1. What do America have to claim as an orginal creation?
2. How many natural resources does America have?
3. How many "AMERICANS" buy U.S. made products vs. Internationally made products? (You do the math)
4. Why do you think the Xbox and pretty much all of its games are getting more praise (specifically in the U.S.) than any other game console, now that the U.S. has a game console?
5. How many Xbox fans are supporting the console because of the American bandwagon?
6. How long has the Xbox been around in the game console world versus other consoles?
7. Would you support Chevy over Lexus?
8. How many employees for Microsft are foreign?(hmmmmmm)
9. How many gamers/people (outside of the RED, WHITE, and BLUE) really think that Xbox is the best console, given the length of history of the Xbox?
10. CAN YOU NAME ANY OTHER GAMES BESIDES: HALO, GEARS OF WAR, AND FORZA, THAT ARE REALLY REPUTABLE GAMES?
**HOW MANY PEOPLE USED THE XBOX360 AS A "JUST TO GET BY" CONSOLE UNTIL THE RELEASE OF.....THE PS3? (HONESTLY)
(By the way I am not yelling at anyone with those CAPS..just feeling the spirit towards the end)...lol
Call me crazy, but EVERY TIME "top gamer" posts something he marks it "agreed". Now, if that's not reaching I don't know what is. If you like something dude - just roll with it.

-- "GT has gone downhill". --
I must admit you're rabid hatred for anything Sony is beyond laughable and unfortunately makes you somewhat of a joke in this community. So, I've officially stopped considering you an objective, intelligent observer. Forget about it; you're in Kim Jong IL territory, now. Now go ahead and mark "disagree", dude. And make sure to keep marking you're own statements "AGREED" if that makes you feel better I wish the mods would not even let a person vote on their own comment - how childish.
I normally don't even respond to you due to your lack of knowledge on anything discussed and your pure fanboyism...but this is the first and last time that I will.
I don't hate sony. I have sony tv's. I have a sony camcorder. I buy movies and music from sony. I have the ps1 and the ps2 and I have the ps3 pre bought.
So yes, you are crazy and dillusional. But I knew this a while ago when I read your postings on this site. I chose to ignore you. ha ha ha.
Yes the GT games have gone downhill as the reviews suggest. I didn't make it up. The reviews support that fact. Sorry if that offends you and your perfect view of sony and that particular series.
I'm not attempting to convince anyone of anything. I read, research, post links, and give my personal opinions on the news posts. Thats what this section is for. Its not for people to rub eachothers backs and post only the positive side of the news. Its news4gamers. Maybe you would be more comfortable and welcome on a ps3land forum. Where everyone agree's. ha ha ha
And lastly, I have made many friends on this site. At least 20 people on my xbox live friends list, I met from this site. I don't agree with my posts. I find it funny that I have to even state that. Who really cares? ha ha ha But for the record I don't. And personally I don't care who does or doesn't. The agree button is there for a reason. Just like the lame or cool button. So grow up buddy. And from this point on I will go back to ignoring people like you who clearly have no clue or smidget of common sense.
P.S. I tend to get alot of agree's. I believe its due to the fact that I make sense. I know when someone disagree's...they hate...hate...hate...anything that is not Sony postitive. Get over it. Grow up. And be a Gamer. Go USA.
P.S. Halo 2 totally outsold GT4. Why do sony fans insist on lying? I will never understand taht. We all have access to the internet buddy. Here is a link to worldwide sales. Halo 2 sold 1 million more than GT4. Now get over it and understand that the momentum is with Microsoft. Its ok. Life goes on. Ps3 should fair ok this next gen. But Microsoft clearly has the edge in hardware/software/ and services. And of course most importantly GAMES. Thanks Microsoft.
Thank Almighty God you have responded to me!!!!! Now I can finally die in peace (BARF).
"TOP FAKER," you respond to me because I set the tone and DICTATED that you respond to me. Just like the other "common-sense" people who called you out on this site - Lozer.
Everyone knows you're a loser an egotistical maniac by flashing that retarded avater of the LA FAKERS. So go back to your main site: www.sniffingbillgatesfarts.com and don't come back. I'm sure the people who agree with you on a consistent basis are incapable of thinking for themselves and push "agree" so that you're little Sony or bash-anything- Japanese-"clan" looks good on this site. Yeah, go USA - we need more of US and less of you. The USA was built on diversity and acceptance of others opinions and views - not your close-minded racist views. Hopefully you can play your 360 with George Wallace in the afterlife if that makes you more American, David Duke.
Now get Bill's teabag off your chin and go jump online with your band of fairy-men so you can discuss your next Sony bashing party. Too bad the games you've bought don't keep you entertained enought to stay off of the PS3-bashing rants. And then you talk about having the PS3 "pre-ordered". You're a walking contradiction, a joke, a charlatan, a FAKER, and a naive little hater. The charade is up. Tell Mart & scriptkiddie to get out of your bed and go home because you have nothing more to say "top faker".
--"The agree button is there for a reason. Just like the lame or cool button. So grow up buddy"--
Pure proof that you agree with yourself and vote biased on anything no matter what the article is saying. What a tool. LOLOLOL
Now AGREE to that BEEEEEE - OTCCCCHHHHH
You totally ignored my comment about how Gran Turismo 3 got higher reviews than Gran Turismo 2. I guess you only choose to acknowledge things that agree with your warped worldview.
There's the link I got my numbers from, it's wikipedia, but it's still right most of the time. The list you gave is outdated btw. Unless of course you agree with it that only 3 360 games have sold more than 1 million copies.
I do my research too, I think for myself, and I don't have to resort to agreeing with my own comments. Don't try to act like you didn't, cause when every single one of the ten or so comments you've just posted today have agrees on them, including a couple I spotted that said 1 minute ago or 2 minutes ago, it becomes real obvious what you're doing, and it's pathetic. And the only reason this will be the last time you're responding is because you're out of bubbles.
because he's afraid that no one likes him (which is pretty much true). On the other article about "5 Reasons PS3 will succeed", he whined about people not providing links, and just as I predicted when I provided the proof the only thing he could resort to was calling me a liar...yet again. He still makes up random crap for some reason too, and goes so far as to ignore Microsoft's official press releases in order to make them look better. He's too dumb and immature to come up with real arguments. O well, such is the way life.
DJ what you write reflects yourself more mate.
You always don't react on peoples post, ignore parts and then put lies out there.
But you're pwned on the posts mostly and you were here also but still you keep coming back. Strange
the sun was comming down? Alot darker...Sunset
@ Antan I read this comment from you:
"Make no mistake about it, Polyphony will go out all guns blazing to make GT5 a better overall experience than this and vice versa with the Forza boys."
Interesting Antan. There is no GT5 untill Spring 2008.
For now it's GT4 HD smugged up PS2 game and Forza 2 competing. Forza 2 will win hands down.
When GT5 releases (if not delayed on massive base like Killzone 2/3 is), Forza 3 will be here also.
Forza was already stated by game reviewers to be the better race simulator (watch the scores overall), Forza 2 will take a quantum leap over GT4 HD smugged PS2 game, and will stay that for the next 1,5 year.
In that time race fanatics will have bought the game and the 360. After that it'll be Forza 3 compared to GT5. But Forza 2 already having quantum leap in 2 episodes and GT4 fourth episode on an equal base with the 1st Forza...
You know what is pwned then!!! So please. You always react on my posts with no brain comments and you keep them that way I see.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! Exellent!!! getting a bit defensive there mate!!!! haha. WOW you can see into the future now!! WHOW!! Its nice that you think im bashing Forza when quite clearly i am not. Touched a raw nerve there i think! hehe. So Forza 3 will be out at the same time as GT5? thats not a long time from 2 to 3 is it, ah yes, it must be a cheap cash-in.
just to put it strait i think we are all winners becouse both games are gona be good so just get over your selves ,ps3 or 360 we have our prefrence just play the games that what i do.
Completely agreed. Why can't people just see that the competition is creating 2 great racing games? Personally I will get Forza because I own a 360 but if I had a PS3 I would probably get Gran Turismo. And why do people on here have to bash games that other people like? If you don't like a game then explain why in a civilized manner rather than just saying a competing game is better. That just starts dumb arguments that make your day worse.
i think we need more people like you on these forums people that talk about the games instead of bashing them ....lets just all get a long with each other rather than dissing each other...life is hard enought without us fighting over games.. pease out my gamer tag is stevey 247
Here we go:
Gran Turismo 4: Great car list, great tracks, good graphics. Poor "feel". When you're driving a real car at the limit...I don't know how many of you have done that, the car gives you a lot of feedback...take it too fast, and things get rough, the car loses grip, and the tires squeal. I could never feel that in the Gran Turismo series...I didn't realize that until I picked up...
Forza: Smaller car list, but some key names missing from the GT series. (Porsche, Ferrari..) Damage...oh my gosh, how many times have you bounced off a wall or another car in the GT series...and ah, the cars fine, no consequences. Still looks like I just washed and waxed it. In Forza, things flew off the car....it did copy the GT series, but it took all of its weaknesses and made them strong.
GT:HD...Polyphony is just going to try the same formula, it looks like...work on graphics, work on car lists(finally getting Ferrari), and not care about making it a real simulation....I don't know, for some reason, in my simulations I like there to be some kind of effect for running into a wall head on at 200 mph. Maybe that's just me. Say there was a really long straight, followed by a sharp right hand corner.....you could get the same time around that corner, maybe even better, by just slamming into the wall head on and starting to drive again... or the aggressive kid behind you can bounce off of you through the corner...greeat. Without rumble...how are you supposed to get close to telling when your cars going off the road. The particle effects are inexistent in the trailers for it so far too....haven't seen much smoke or dust....we'll see about that. If I were to buy this game I'd have no choice but to buy a FF wheel too.
Forza 2...even more cars than before, and Lamborghini, best damage in a console simulation yet, great feel, force feedback wheel made for the game, great particle effects....
There won't be as many cars on track, and the level of detail won't be as high, but it's still going to be impressive...ohh, and the decal editor, I left that out....custom paint jobs are huge in Forza....in the GT series...look at the customization...here's some new wheels..now let's put on a giant wing...and...paint it green! Yes! Green! I love green! Vs...... full, real body kits, Different types of spoilers and wings, wheels, and a fully custom decaled paint job....hmmm....and if you get hit the right way, that wing can fly off...which will effect your performance....
Forza 2 sounds more like a simulation to me...
And I would say that GT:HD is more like buying DLC for GT4, just with better graphics, and you dont get to keep your old save...and you have to pay the full price for the game.
As for Forza 2...by the time GT5 finally comes out, there will most likely be tons of DLC (Tracks, cars, maybe even parts and gameplay modes.) out for it, but I wouldnt expect Forza 3 for awhile. Polyphony really dropped the ball by not having the true next one in it's series out.
Arggh! i was going to post this 2 days ago but i though that i might have been old. I found it on Youtube but i misread it and thought it was uploaded on 9th October. So i didn't post it. Oh well, congrats on not making that mistake.
Edit: i can't find the video now but i saw it.
the damage system looks great. as much as I would like to buy the force feedback wheel I can't justify to myself spending $150 on a peripheral for one genre. now add support for driving a warthog in Halo 3 and I might just buy one.
Yeah, I agree...but MS is making all the publishers who publish racing games support it.
