Microsoft confirmed today the after being delayed late last year, Forza Motorsport 2 will be released to North American retailers in May 2007.
Only 12 tracks? Can`t be right! But it appears there are variations of these also if you dig a little deeper.
The game will have 300 cars, 12 tracks, and 6 multiplayer modes!
Seems like a good racing game so far, except, 12 tracks your kidding me!!!
In comparison GT4 had 100 tracks, and 600 cars...
they plan to nickel and dime us to death with microtransactions. Real price of Forza 2 will be more than a PS3.
disappointing amount of tracks but it does say on the forza site
"All told, there are 47 different ribbons in the game across the 12 environments".
so nearly each track has 4 different routes + downloadable tracks and cars (hopefully some are free).
I must admit that i cant wait to be online with this game. Drag racing online in forza was so cool.
there is still GT5 in case Forza 2 turns out to be disappointing.
But I sure hope not, I have been waiting for this game and I had high expectations for it.
When did MSFT Confirm this? This is total BS. Forza has a lot more than 12 tracks. Sorry.
12 tracks, and this is SUPPOSED to be another AAA Xbox 360 title...right.
I bet u xbots which you had blu-ray 50GB disk space now huh...hahaha
It's 47 tracks across 12 environments. Go to the Forza 2 website if your fanboy brain doesn't believe me.
If had a dollar for every time a fanboy sticks his foot in his mouth, I'd never have to pay for another video game for the rest of my life.
that all of the ps2 and xbox games were on dvd, yet amazingly every game wasn't the same length. i wonder if it actually comes down to what a developer decides, or has the time to do. nah, that would be silly.
quality > quantity last time I checked
but 12 tracks will get boring FAST!!!
Can you not read.
These are real world tracks btw, plus grand turimo did have alot of tracks however alot were crap and they included reverse and different iterations of the same track to boast the count. Its the quality not the quantity.

SOMEHOW I DO NOT THINK GT4/5 IS EVEN IN THE SAME LEAGE/LEVEL NO MATTER HOW YOU PEOPLE TRY TO SPIN IT.
Now that sounds alot better!
12 Tracks cannot be right and it isn't. It's like in PGR3 where they have only 5 or 6 cities, but each environment has tons of tracks. I imagine they mean the same thing, 12 environments with many variations/routes to customize. Then add the downloadable content and you've got yourself plenty.
Forza 1 was a cool game. THe replay mode was great. You could analyze the way you raced, look at acceleration patterns, braking patterns, and tire wear down in specific spots. I just thought that was a coodl feature.
It's actually 47 tracks (ribbons) across 12 environments. Geez, panic much?
I think Sony/GT? fans need a 60 different worlds to race like the
The middle of the earth track
The snow track
The Moon track
The outer Space track
The under the Sea track
Well i'll stop now.
I wish all the PS3 fans would shut the f_ck up about there blu-ray player. Which it is all they have to play is blu-ray movies not GAMES. Yeah us XBOX fans would love to have all that extra space.LOL So we can wait until 2010 to have a few games to play. Why dont all yall Sony fans go out and talk to Sony and see if yall can help try to sell some PS3 or should I say blu-ray players because they need all the help they can get. Yall are just mad because we already have a 100+ games to play while yall are waiting on your 60 gb blu-ray disc to fill up. Forza will be one of the best racing games out this year. We are even helping Sony out. Once this game comes out Sony can use pics of Forza to try and sell there boring a_s GT5. If they use screens of both Forza and PGR. They really should not have any problem selling GT.ROTFL
that they made the damage so much more intense than Forza 1. I love that you have a risk-reward for pushing your car to the limit.
Yeah the damage system in Forza definatly adds some realism to the game! 47 tracks, 300 highly customizable cars, wireless racing wheel w/ rumble, all on the beauty of xbox live??? Oh yeah...I'm so there! :)
ONE MORE TIME FOR THOSE THAT DON'T READ
47 TRACKS IN TOTAL
And now beat it if you're a Sony fanboy with selective reading. Or must I say just blind
This will be mine. With the MS force feedback wheel.
Yeah Fony fanboys, eat that. Force Feedback. PS3 racing games won't have rumble in the controller, nor feedback in a wheel.
That's hilarious but freakin' lame at the same time. I'll be tearing up the track real soon. Like I'm tearing up some Locust with my chainsaw tonight
and saw that there are indeed only 12 tracks (enviroments), but each track includes The full Grand Prix course, the West course, and the East course with the famous esses.
So its more like 47 tracks.
They should've just said it includes 47 tracks so PS3 fanboys wouldn't come and bash this game. ;)
not only that this game is delayed until May. I guess if that's what it takes to make this game the best possible, but damn wasn't this game suppose to be out last November. Then they leave off my favorite track from the orginal, Road America. Though 47 tracks on 12 environments are an awful lot to completely memorize as compete online they have to all be committed to memory. Two Worlds delayed and now Forza, hopefully Crackdown will have been done well enough to hold both March and April. Just make it perfect with the extra time.
sh!t fit people we all know that FM 2 will be the best available racing sim/game in 07', hell maybe the best of all time. ; }] >
The best racing game of all time will be GT5. ;}]>
Not Forza 2, with its crappy 12 tracks...lol, what a f*cking joke.
You Freaking Fony Fanboys all suffer of blindness.
GO READ AGAIN if you can kid, 47 tracks, 12 environments. Now beat it
Furthermore, GT? THat game that calls itself a simulation, but if you hit the wall with 250 km/ph there is no scratch on the car and you can just drive on?
That game? hahaha Don't make me laugh.
Forza 1 made it at least to the same level and reading the reviews from back then surpassed GT which was in it's 4th edition already.
Think about that. In one edition Forza, the were at the same level, if not above GT the 4th edition.
Now imagion where Forza 2 will be... It'll take up to GT8 before you'll finally reach that level of the game in graphics, gameplay etc.!
And one thing for sure: you'll never get a driving wheel with force feedback because Sony forgot to pay the bill :-)
Cant wait for this game the first one blew my mind! bcause all I did was play GT 1,2,3,4
Yeah have fun playing GT5 ......in Christmas of 2008! HAHA!!!
how is that a problem? u can just plug in yur mp3 or play songs from your hardrive... DUH. thats what i always do

The best of all time??? HAHA, So far its only at 83% average on gamerankings! Sure doesn't look like the best of all time!
If you have no other purpose to come in here and start/continue arguements whats the point of posting comments
I am definently getting this game. I have been craving a good racer. Last one I played (Not including NFS Carbon) was PGR3.
"Forza Motorsport 2 burns rubber at 60 fps with 2x full-screen anti-aliasing"
2x Anti-aliasing? Wait, wasn't the Microsoft requirement for all 360 titles 4xAA? Oh yeah, forgot. Xenos's ED-RAM isn't big enough for 720p frames when you use anything above 2xAA.
It's kind of sad that there's only 12 tracks, despite multiple variations of each track. According to Microsoft, the Forza and Project Gotham teams are sharing assets and working with each other a lot so this game should turn out fine.
Doesn't look like it can compete with Gran Turismo in terms of number of tracks and cars, but I want to see how accurate their damage system is since that's their advantage over the GT series at the moment.
Forza's better in every way no one needs to race wacky cars on Xbox sim.
What don't you people understand about enviroments Lets say on of the enviroments is a huge chunk of an city, do you really think racing fans are going to give a fuc about these twisted fan fucer rants; if the roads differ from one race to the other it's a different track. lol. Most Need for Speed games have Just one enviroment with variations. lol
So not only are you an expert on the ps3 hardware but you are now an expert on the 360 hardware lol! i wish you would just STFU you moronic ass hole. I wish i could meet you face to face.
as far as I can tell gthd has one car on one track. Now that is an accopmlishment. Great comparison. Seriously, that was very nice.
And I can safely tell you that as of now Gran Turismo is still better than Forza.
Maybe Forza 2 will change that, who knows?
can all " safely " agree to disagree! Forza 2 will not disappoint. GT 5 will be a great game 2. ENJOY BOTH < ; ] >
Agreed. GT5 and Forza 2 will be great. I don't understand why people have so much bitterness towards one or the other.
I'm not big on racing games, I played Forza 1 and GT3 and they both seemed just OK to me but I think I'm starting to get into driving games -Motorstorm looks good but I'm not buying a PS3 yet so I most likely I won't pick it up since there should be better racers whenever I finally get a PS3, on the other hand Forza 2 looks amazing, yes its debatable if Forza is better than GT (what type of racer you like) but since GT5 or whatever won't even be out 'til sometime 2008, I think chances are it will be the best racer of 2007 and of course I own a 360 and I have a buddy who swears Forza is the "real deal" -(his words, not mine) he's already claiming victory over me -(actually I can't repeat the way he put it) which is likely to be true since I suck at racers, although given a little time, I'm a very fast learner, so I think I'll pick it up just to see what all the fuss is about and most importantly the opportunity to shut his "big" mouth once I OWN HIM a few times.
BTW, its funny watching Sonyfanboys come up with their own version of the FACTS, despite whats written in plain English.
"Forza Motorsport 2 features over 45 tracks carved out of 12 environments, including several real-world licensed circuits such as Silverstone, Tsukuba, and Laguna Seca."
-I guess the "over 45 tracks" part is just too damm confusing.....some people need everything spelled out for them, you know like 2+2=4, huh, whats that? [over hears Sonyfanboy arguing that 2+2=7, because....?] -((Sonyfanboy logic))
