Sad to say, I had to look at the little icon to determine which game was which. Forza 2 actually looks better in some shots.

I agree
Lighting and some other things makes for forza 3 superior but not a big difference in textures ....

I always knew that turn10 could not achieve the quality in the BULLSHOTS they promoted
smoke n mirrors.

seems ^THAT^ is the microsoft staple this gen, since thats all it brings to the table

I seriously had to close the window after the 3rd comparison photo. It just sickened me because for one, I could hardly tell the difference and two, the graphics were terrible imo.

I thought forza3 was said to have pushed the 360 to its limits? They must have been BSing. Gameplay is what matters most anyway but it's a shame it doesn't look as good as the hype suggested.

huh? Forza 2 cars looking better in some pics.. Better light reflections.. hm, forza 3 is looking good, but the grafics are not much improved..

Forza3 graphics aren't really all that
look at the interior, its just plain ugly.

Really people need to move on with there live's. I have never ever seen fanboys glut over screens of a game they cant own in my life. I have played them both, so i could care less what anyone else thinks or flase opinions they have.
WIIIS1  +   2312d ago
PS3 fanboys are a joke! Using GT bullshots to compare against Forza ingame screens now?? I've played GT5 Prologue the ingame graphics are nowhere near the bullshots so don't try to kid yourselves. Hey let's do a Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2 comparison btw lol!!
Syronicus  +   2311d ago
It's sad to see...
That MS fans defend this type of development. All they did here was put a little different lighting on the old game and packaged it for full retail. This is worse than the Rainbow Six Vegas crap that Ubisoft pulled a while back. More of an update than a new retail game.

Well, you could say Turn10 was a joke, using Forza 3 bullshots to look on par with GT5 bullshots and claim definitive, but hey, GT5 bullshots still looked better. Much better. Funny you sound like a fanboy yourself. What a joke!
DevastationEve  +   2311d ago
I like how the PS3 fanboys bombarded this article right away, good job guys! How much were you paid...wait, you guys do this for free? Man, you guys are more desperate than I thought!

Seriously...not even a dime was made off your hard work? How do you guys support yourselves?
Zeevious  +   2311d ago
I care because I've been LIED TO...
You may be used to it...
You may blindly run out and blow another $60 for what looks to me like the game I already own...
You may even like being lied too in FAKE Shot after FAKE Shot from Turn 10, but gamers with a healthy respect for the truth who don't see any reason to waste $60 that could be spent on a NEW game, that is REALLY new, not a bunch of FAKE PHOTO's & PR...Don't like being lied to.

- I have Forza 2, and wanted to believe this really was much better.
- Turn 10 told me to believe.
- Turn 10 even showed me glossy photo's to make me believe.

What I believe now is simply one thing...
Turn 10 is a Liar.


Real gamers demand REAL games...and it looks like I already own Forza 3...You can too...for $10.

Buy Forza 2 - Do it for Turn $10...

Bad comparaison
Would you give a similar comment for a comparaison between Gran Turismo 3 and 4 ? At that time, people could have give the same comments : the same tracks looked exactly the same, the only slight difference was in the cars. In reality Gran Turismo 4 was a lot better on new tracks.

In Forza 3, the cars don't have the same hard sunlight reflection on top of the car but do you prefer that ? (people were complaining when Forza 2 was out that this light was not quite realistic)
In short, having played the demo (and having Forza 2), I can tell you that the graphics are a big improvement: new tracks are really gorgeous and cars have really less aliasing.

On the other hand, Forza 3 is here compared with Forza 2 which is, to my eyes, actually the best racing game (NFS is not as pure and polished).
Zeevious  +   2310d ago
Tucky...Bad comparison?
or simply inconveniently true.

I ALSO own Forza 2 & yes, I've played the demo...who interested in this game hasn't?

Your question about comparing GT3 & GT4 in fact really proves the validity of comparing Forza 3 & 2! Yes...I would & I have compared the two GTs. Now I'm comparing Forza.

Forza 3 is definitely not a "big" improvement in graphics...anyone looking at these screenshots, myself included often had to look for the logo to tell if the shots are from 2 or 3!

A big improvement would have been if Turn 10's shots paraded around everywhere where in fact NOT FAKE.

The truth is, you where lied to. I was lied to. EVERYONE was lied to.

I'll reserve final judgment after renting Forza 3, but everything besides the fake Turn 10 shots 7 ridiculous Turn 10 PR points to the actual game being nothing more than Forza 2 - Regurgitated into a new $60 box.

I can get Forza 2 for just Turn $10 & plus what is actually a NEW game for the $60 i'll save adjusting the brightness & contrast myself...

Turn 10 . . . Loved Forza 2 -- But your lies & fake shots have lost this gamers trust.

So run along and play with your little plastic cars, i think i hear your mommy calling for din din.

Gee I don't know Foxgod just maybe it has something to do with
Turn 10 and all their definitive BS including the best graphics ever. This obviously isn't even the best looking 360 racer let alone best looking console racer ever. This is just a slightly more polished Forza 2 and that was no looker to begin with.

If you "Special people" don't like turn 10. Then why do you insist on coming to all the articles. Yeah thats right it's a rhetorical question, well good thing i have played both to make my decision instead of going by someone falsley doing screen comparisons.
PirateThom  +   2312d ago
I've also played both Forza 2 and Forza 3 and, yes, there is some improvement, but not the spectacular visuals Turn 10 lied about.

The interiors of the cars are ugly as hell for one thing.

Basically, spin it however you like, the game is not as advertised.

Why ps3 games are not compared? Well these get released once a year so we have to wait for their exclusive games to turn up. In the meantime we not only enjoy MP games but also exclusives. Sorry ps3 only owners just wait for their exclusives since 99% of MP are better on 360 and anyway sony lovers dont like anything which is on another cheaper console.
beardpapa  +   2311d ago
Foxgod, you're gonna get these types of articles regarding a game that's touted as definitive racer and best graphics but underdelivers. You know, the arrogant statements? Like Heavenly Sword couldn't be done on dvd and only possible on blu-ray, but hey it was only like 6 hours long. Or how Sony did this before and the media lashed at them with a lot of articles too - the whole get two jobs to purchase a PS3. Irony that some people had to get two jobs in this economic downfall to purchase a PS3. KZ2 was getting this kind of backlash too when the first leaked images came out. Media was comparing it left & right against the CGI E3 trailer. Fortunately enough, GG was able to deliver a game that's on par with the trailer and in some cases exceed expectations.

Haha... feel the wrath... the PS3 had to endure when it was criticized from 360 supporters to no ends Mrs. Angel. It was really retarded to be honest, now it's payback even though I do not criticize the 360 much on N4G. There is a lesson here, do unto others what others do unto thee Click it. Click it. Clik t.

dalibor  +   2312d ago
You got a point. I guess that is why I usually go to the forums more so than before. At least there it seems like there is less hate towards systems. But people do need to not take this kind of stuff to seriously, it boggles my mind how people from both sides can act at times. Game on in a peaceful way... and actually become more civil. We gots to represent the gaming community no matter where your stance is.
Zeevious  +   2311d ago
What wrath? I want to know if Forza 3 is worth a purchase...
I own Forza 2, and honestly having been convinced with Turn 10's fake pics & PR, comparisons like this are important.

If you have a PS3 and are just gloating over this controversy...go play a game -- I'll meet you in the Uncharted 2 multiplayer deathmatch...(prepare to die)

I'm trying to decide if I should buy Forza 3.
At this point these comparisons have helped tremendously. So far, it looks like I already BOUGHT Forza 3, when I bought Forza 2!

I'll still rent 3, but if it's not worth $50 more than what I already have in Forza 2, I'll just spend that on a REAL game.

Staircase  +   2312d ago
Rofl. I really hate siding with "Sony Fanboys," but damn are they right. You only complain when the comparison shows the lack of graphic quality in a 360 game.
PROFIT  +   2312d ago
im sorry you feel that way
i truly do. realistically though, im a huge fan of quality and new experiences unrivaled anywhere else. If that entitles me to be labeled a sony fanboy....then i guess sony is delivering in that area. which in turn makes me a fan of them.

im just offering my honest opinion. if u cant stomach my post, just block me.

have a nice day

I don't like to get into discussions like these but I will only say this, I am disappointed in Turn10. The game's graphics are no way near what they showed in the videos & so called screenshots
Zeevious  +   2311d ago
I have to agree 100%!
Here's my recommendation to everyone...

Buy Forza 2 - It's $10 - Give Turn 10 a $10

Save $50 -- Adjust the Brightness & Contrast yourself!

This is kind of funny...
I'm wondering if it has to do with the disc size since Forza 2 was on one disc and Forza 3 is on two, in the end Forza 2 looks better; a first in the industry that the predecessor surpasses its successor. People will see soon enough in their own homes if it is really true. I'm sure this will sell millions because it's Microsoft and they're all about the games (rolls eyes).

I'm surprised the PS3 fanboys took this long to bash Forza.

Here comes the SDF offensive. LOL at the pics all small and cherry picked captured just at the right moments to make Forza 2 seem on par with Forza 3.

This guy is doing something to the pics that is why he keeps making them. are making these.

If you play the Froza 3 demo and Forza 2 and read the reviews you would know Forza 3 blows past Forza 2.

Forza 2 cars look sad compared to Forza 3 cars.

TruEve  +   2312d ago
I notice a difference
but not much...

Initially I had to do a double-take and look for the logo to discover which was which.

FM3 should look better overall, but from these screens, it doesn't seem to be a great leap. A side-to-side comparison on my TV would be fair.

Lastly, is it just me, or does FM2 actually look better in some of these pics?
