Forza 3: Car Porn in Motion

Brian Crecente writes

Forza Motorsport 3 is car porn in motion.

"We've got this clean look based on the look of a car brochure," said Forza Motorsport 3 director Dan Greenawalt. "We call it car porn.

But Forza 3 is more than just 400 cars from 50 manufacturers and 100 tracks, it's developer Turn 10's attempt to bridge the gap between racing sim and arcade racer without leaving anyone behind.

"Our goal is to turn gamers into car lovers and car lovers into gamers," Greenawalt said. "To deliver approachable and thrilling gameplay."

Doesnt look like he is about to shut up anytime soon.

Wow, Forza 3 buries GT5 from what we've seen, graphics and physics engine. And GT5 doesn't even have a release date after it's 4th, yep you read correctly, 4th showing at E3. Sony dropping the ball again. Yet again I feel bad for people who bought a PS3...especially my friends who tell me, "I want a 360."

I tell them to troll N4G like you if it will make them feel better. Does the 5 in GT5 mean wait 5 years for it to come out?

stevenhiggster3107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

Seriously, anyone who can look at those screenshots and HONESTLY say that it looks better than GT5 is completely mental!

LeShin3107d ago

Agreed, but the funny thing is, and this is for you delusional fools out there:

Gt5 isn't out
It doesn't even have a release date
No one knows what features it even has
No one has bloody played it

So how the HELL are the Forza devs (and those super fanboys) comparing Forza 3 to a game that, technically, doesn't exist???

"In other news, Splinter Cell Conviction devs claim their game is better than MGS5!" lol

"At its easiest, Forza 3 even brakes for you, leaving the gamer to hold down the gas and keep the car on the green line which shows the best approach to every turn."
how the hell is this part of a racing sim? it's not like this happens in reality (or am i missing something?) i understand that this feature can be disabled?

"The Xbox 360 exclusive also features a new rewind button."
Seriously what? if only in real life! no more accidents :O

"Forza Motorsport 3 features ten times more polygons in each car model and four times the texture resolution than found in Forza 2 he said."
yes but that is because Forza 2 was pretty much an Xbox game and not 360 (graphics wise)

"The game delivers these astonishing realistic graphics while calculating physics at 360 frames per a second"
kotaku, i bet you mean "60 frames per second" lol

"all 400 cars now include the ability to completely roll over in a race, something no racing game has ever tried before"
are they seriously THAT desperate? i have seen plenty of racing games do that..

"Greenawalt also mentioned that Forza Motorsport 3 has a "strategic partnership" with Audi."
i really wonder what kinda partner ship this is! tell me now!

further going uni next year, and if i have enough monies, i am going to buy a 360 just for this game! GT5 + Forza 3 > one of the two!
also .. i still don't get HOW THE HELL people can compare Forza 3 with GT5.. We know so much about Forza 3 thanks to the devs not being able to shut their mouth, but we almost know nothing about GT5!
stop comparing them already! this goes out especially to Turn10! you ain't played it, you ain't seen it properly stop bashing it already coz everytime you do, it makes me buy a Forza 3 copy less and less!

EDIT.. i forgot to say that comparing cars with porn is just sick! me being a big car fanatic, i have always said girls > cars > games

Bnet3433106d ago

Those screens look very nice. I went back to Forza 2, it's a really fun game.

socomnick3106d ago

We'll thats exactly it, We know when forza 3 is coming out, we know its better, we know it offers more features. gt5 we dont know jack about because it is nowhere near being finished. Sure they may say that they could release the game today if they wanted to but that does not mean its anywhere near finished and nowhere near the quality of forza 3.

Simple fact is Forza 2 blows away all the gt games when it comes to realistic physics, Gt1-gtp. Grand turismo needs to rethink their grid based "physics" and learn from forzas tire deformation physics. Real hardcore sim drivers know that Gt is the joke of the sim world. heck the most realistic simulation on the ps2 is enthusia a konami game.

projectile3106d ago

The physics engine runs at 360 "cycles" (or whatevery you want to call it) per second. The picture is rendered at 60 fps.

jib3106d ago (Edited 3106d ago )

those features are for casuals. the game caters to both audiences(casuals/hardcore). also, the physics engine does calculate at 360/sec. from what i remember, forza 2 does this as well

@1.7 whoops. beat me to it

uie4rhig3106d ago (Edited 3106d ago )

oh lol.. neva knew how physics are done, let alone how they are measured.. so thats where i went wrong lol thanks for clearing up and bubbles for both of you.. and casual .. smasual, hardcores will use it the rewind feature just coz they can.. trust me on that! i know i would!

Do they bride Brian Crecente with a car for the article?

XD

Mr_Controversy3106d ago

Gran Turismo runs at 60FPS after a 10GB install, lol! Forza Motorsport 3 runs at 360 frames FPS on 2 DVD's.

Gran Turismo HAS DONE NOTHING SINCE GT3. PS3 only users = fail. That's why Sony is in last place just like Gran Turismo.

KionicWarlord2223107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

sigh...

All this forza 3 are amazing articles .....They need to stop hyping me up i cant take it.

green3107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

Just realized i have not played any sim with vehicle rollover.Turn 10 must have done a lot of begging for all the manufacturers to agree to it.

@ SHABSZAR: Lol, i am also a car fanatic and have over 130 car magazines that i have collected since i was 13.I attend Le man's 24hrs in France last year and went for a driving day in Brands Hatch where i got to drive a few performance cars all day.

I love everything about cars from their design to the engineering the business and to the remarkable history that the auto industry has had.I just can't explain it but it's just something i have loved since i was a kid and i hope to work in the auto industry someday.

ShabzS3107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

... one of my good frndz is a car fanatic .. i honestly dont get what the big deal is (metal can with 4 seats and steering wheel?).. but anyways he loves cars and what not..

i just showed him this trailer and ... he was just shocked... he couldnt believe it was all ingame.... he's in the bathroom right now ... i wouldnt be surprised if he's in there jackin off right as we speak o_0

KionicWarlord2223107d ago

ShabzS3107d ago (Edited 3107d ago )

forza3 will be the best racing game of 09.
Xbox started the year rough but with the titles coming out in a few months

Splinter cell Conviction
Halo odst
forza3

And Those Titles are bound to score over 85+ And Sell Multi-Millions easaly and putting more money into microsoft's pockets since they are triple A tittles I can see microsoft locking the year 2009 like they did in 2008 and 2007 .
With the Increase of money they will get from those AAA titles Microsoft will have The budget needed to finance many new AAA titles for the year 2010. This E3 proved to Who Ever that said microsoft did not have any games for 09 were wrong Like they always have been. On the Other Hand the Playstation brand have announced most of their games since early 2006 and Most of those games are coming out somewhere in 2010

gt5 2010
heavy rain 2010
gow2010
uncharted2 2010
trico 2010

while we dont know alot about microsfots games for 2010
we already know about

Alan wake
mass effect 2
halo reach

and we will be seeing undoubtly

Perfect dark 2
Killer instic 3
gears 3 ( One of the Best Scored series /selling Next Gen games)

somewhere around 2010. The year 2010 might just be the year of the X360 Once again.

Max Power3107d ago
