Sigh.... this isn't looking any better....

Pathetic. Turn 10 shouldn't have ever opened there mouths, look at what rage it caused.

Bereaver3351d ago

To those of you disagreeing.

poindat3351d ago

I guessed which one was Forza 3 and which one was Forza 2... I was wrong. The fact that I thought F3 was F2 is just plain sad (and for the game, not me).

Note to Turn 10: If you're going to run your mouths day and night about this game, at least deliver on what you are saying. Because as it stands, this is just pathetic.

radzy3351d ago

All my friends and i after playing the demo all agreed it looks waaaaaay better than forza 2 and we cant wait for the release. forza 2 looks like a pile of shiiit compared to forza 3.
forza 3 is so polished , that its not funny, no screen tearing , no anti-aliasing problems, etc......


ambientFLIER3351d ago


There is a big difference on screen, which does not always translate to tiny screenshots.

Forza3 looks better. Offers more.

best sim racer out for 09.

GWAVE3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

Surprise surprise. They pulled a "Gears of War 2" with Forza 3, also.

- pretty much the same graphics
- pretty much the same game

Yet the media touts it as NEW, INNOVATIVE, TEH BEST EVARRR!

@ poindat

I wasn't disagreeing with the "best racing sim of 09", considering that it's really the ONLY racing sim of '09, so that's not too hard to accomplish. I was disagreeing with "Forza 3 looks better. Offers more", since that's a stretch of the truth.

GameOn3351d ago

Bereaver that was verging on offensive, if you're going to speak like that maybe you should just stick to the open zone.

I agree with Natsu, Forza 3 is the best sim racer this YEAR.

poindat3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

Uh, guys... He's right. Name one console sim racer that released/releases this year that can beat Forza 3... I can't think of any.

@GWAVE above me: No, it was not the only racing sim released this year. I do agree with you in many (most) aspects, but considering that my position on Forza should be known, and bashing it any more would be redundant, I decided to leave such things out of my comment. :D

In these comparison screen shots Forza 3 does NOT look better. If anything I prefer the lighting more in Forza 2 in quite a few of those comparison pictures. I really hope this site hosting these pics are trying to make Forza 3 look worse than they actually are because if not I am really disappointed with what I am seeing.

The only differences I see is Forza 3 looks darker, has slightly more detail and better AA. So What happened to this all new graphical engine Turn 10 lead us to believe? It definitely isn't showing in these pictures.

tucky3351d ago

It was exactly the same a few years ago with Gran Turismo 3 and 4: same tracks and cars were pretty much the same. Anyway, when playing these games the 4 was much better than its predescessor.
It's exactly the same with Forza 3 ... If you played the demo you know what I mean.

iamgoatman3351d ago


Forza 2's lighting was NOT superior. If you had played the game you'd know that the lighting was far too harsh, if your car hit direct sunlight you'd have a hard time making out details amongst the glare, it would end up looking like your were driving a glowing pope-mobile.

But oh well, having people make an assessment based on experience with the game is a bit much to ask here. One look at a screenshot and the verdict is final, no more questions your honour.

Zeevious3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

What about last year...or TWO years ago...because it looks like I've been playing Forza 3 for TWO YEARS -- When it was released as FORZA 2!

I feel VERY lied to by Turn 10, and after all their claims of graphic improvements there is NOTHING that supports that in any gameplay I've seen yet.

Tell me...why should I give Turn 10 another $60 for THE SAME GAME?

Please...DON'T BELIEVE ME...believe the reviews of BOTH GAMES!
Forza 2 :
Forza 3 :

They are the SAME!

I am personally furious with Turn 10...having waited for months for this title, believing the fake shots they showed me, the fake claims of car details, incredible graphics, gameplay and I believed it all.

No developer would just flat-out LIE to me...RIGHT?
Microsoft's own studio wouldn't flat-out LIE to me...RIGHT?

"Turn 10 on Forza 3: 'No game competes with us'" (just any 360 racing game competitor???)
"Turn 10: Forza Motorsport 3 to push the 360 in terms of both visuals and performance." (where???)
"Turn 10 -- Dan Greenawalt: 'it would be difficult for any other racing game to do this'" (Forza 2 did)
"Turn 10 -- Dan Greenawalt: 'Forza 2 had great physics and okay graphics. Now Forza 3 has great physics and great graphics'" (MENU graphics...great MENU/Photomode graphics!)

What gamer LIKES being intentionally mislead and lied to?

Whoever is interested in this game...Why buy it? RENT IT.
Don't give Turn 10 anything more than $10...because that's all Forza 2 costs! $10 . . . For the SAME DAMN GAME!

Buy Forza 2 - Do it for Turn $10...or invest that $60 in a NEW game.

Megan Fox3351d ago

Give it a rest people, the game is great, at least that's what reviews are saying. Just let go and move on. buy if you like and if you dont then dnt buy it.

Zeevious3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

I just don't know why the spineless disagreed..with no arguments of course...because I can see it now!

Turn 10 gave us the holy salvation of non-gaming CGI shots and they are truly worthy!

this game doesn't remind me at all of some other game with a 2 in it.
It's completely different, right down to the road textures!

i swear to you, swearing on my Turn 10 bible that I counted the pixels myself and Three of them...yes Three are different, so it is a different game altogether.

3 - 2 - 1


Yes, it doesn't make me thing of the exact same in-game shots, with the exact same play and the exact same game who's name I really can't recall right now.

F O R Z A 2

Now is that all better great spineless disagreeing cowards with no arguments...hiding behind your mouseclicks?

I hope scurry along little coward...scurry along back to your rock.

Zeevious3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

I never said the game wasn't great...I said I ALREADY OWN IT : Forza 2-Now $10!

All the lies from Turn 10 have moved this out of my buy category...
into the Rent - Try - Unlikely-Buy one.

What exactly are you asking me and others to ",let go of" ? That Turn 10 lied to gamers like me? Look at it from my point of view:

Turn 10 had 500 screenshots, 400 IN-Game, 100 fake.

They showed, and ONLY showed the 100 FAKE shots and passed them off as what to expect when playing.

Now you are asking me to ignore that and they deserve another $60 when it's THE SAME GAME as Forza 2 at $10?

I have a better about you, and the phantom disagree'ers with no actual arguments get over that you are wrong.

Absolutely wrong...NO DEVELOPER gets a pass for this blatant, intended series of lies about this game...which looks like nothing more than the last Forza...RIGHT DOWN TO THE SAME ROAD & BACKGROUND TEXTURES!

I will tell you one thing we can agree on...I'll save $60 by just adjusting the Brightness & Contrast for Forza 2, myself.

Other than that, can you tell me where exactly can I buy the real Forza 3 -- because I'd swear . . .

&*%@ mother *@*$^%&% f*#%ing &*#%% *&#@$ Turn *#&%@!$ 10

I already own it.


Note: Turn 10 bibles now available. They are pretty much any other bible, but it comes with a nifty "Trust Turn 10" booklight that makes the pages brighter, with more text contrast. That's it.

All kneel & pray for Turn 10, that they may be healed.

NewZealander3351d ago

forza 3 looks better in motion, after playing the demo you can see how much better it looks, unfortunately it doesn't show all that well in these pictures.

beardpapa3350d ago (Edited 3350d ago )

what's sorta messed up from these pictures is that it shows the videos back in E3 were pretty much cgi. And yea like above said, the demo plays and looks better than Forza 2. But still, nothing like the E3 vids.

thesummerofgeorge3350d ago (Edited 3350d ago )

Using the CAPS LOCK on every other word is annoying, and although i don't think much of Turn 10 or Forza, you're way over the top here, and it's bordering on a fanboyish rant. Comment after long comment telling people not to buy the game, and really just repeating yourself over and over.

Zeevious3349d ago (Edited 3349d ago )

1 - Go ahead and program -- then donate code to add Bold/italic emphasis to the editor & display code for comments.

2 - Realize that there are people who type at a faster rate.

- I type exactly the length needed to get to my very clear point.
- I will neither apologize for that, or ask for forgiveness because you state
- you don't appreciate that level of reading comprehension.

3 - Consider the context (without apology for my emphases) :
- You're coming into a discussion, AFTER it's over!
(my caps emphasis did not, in ANY way match my frustration with Turn 10 lies!)

My first comment was just that ONE comment. The length you may have found tiresome, but it was required to include both context, quotes & links to relevant information.

My second comment was in fact actually the third...after a comment was made stating Turn 10 deserved a break...deserved another $60...deserved...well, blah blah blah.

It doesn't matter because a couple anonymous disagrees showed up, so in the 2 minutes of edit time remaining I wrote the misprelled, sarcastic comment about cowards who disagree because they have nothing else to say but hide behind mouse-clicks & scurry away back to their rocks.

You have a measure of respect for actually making a comment...they don't and never will. I also offer no apology for having a sense of humor that you may not understand or share . . . my humor is simply uniquely mine.

Third, the second comment, I then pasted into a new message...adding the joke about the "Trust Turn 10" bible edition. It is not a repeat of the first, as anyone with the capacity could tell simply by reading it. It does come to the same conclusion, from additional details which is very different from yours.

I COULD TYPE MORE -- But maybe you would listen to someone who has an opinion you know and trust: :
(written with a similar number of words to my own average here)

"This is a place for comments, there's no problem with disagreeing with an article. You're so quick to jump all over it and get all bitter and say the obligatory "here comes the sony defence force" etc...I wasn't angry or fired up when I stated my opinion on the article, I just had my own opinion, who are you to criticize people for commenting on the article? Either share your own opinion on the subject, or don't... but quit being that guy that's all:"oh my god, who cares about this and that blah blah blah, does this really matter blah blah blah..." do you have any thoughts of your own or do you just get upset when others have opinions? YOU DON'T HAVE TO READ THE COMMENTS if they get your panties in a knot sweetheart!"

. . . Yourself

Finally, I have sent this to you by private message should you wish to continue the discussion...before you do, I suggest you read my comment history and reconsider who you call a "fanboy" or who's ranting. Turn 10 did the ranting, I merely replied in-kind.

If not...I suggest you use the available tools here to simply ignore reading my comments and any burden of comprehension that may I am now ignoring yours . . . sweetheart.

thesummerofgeorge3349d ago

That was my opinion, I'm entitled to say I think your comment was a rant, and over the top. Take your own advice if you don;t like it and don't read my comments. Jackass.

Zeevious3340d ago

Because you're still on ignore for two you're NOT going to get rewarded with the attention you expected, because I haven't read it and am not commenting on the content, but your actions alone:
(been too busy having fun to have even noticed before now)

Apparently replying twice privately...without a reply from me wasn't enough for you to understand the definition of the word IGNORE. Don't worry; since I've not read any of these replies, I really have nothing more to say to you.

YOU however do...and sharing the wisdom of YOUR OWN QUOTE listed above, YOU wrote this just a couple days before your comments here.

Now read it...FROM YOU...TO YOU!

"When in doubt just call everyone a fanboy right? They clearly explained the reasoning behind their opinion, people aren't fanboys just because you disagree. It's just gotten so stale this whole calling everyone a fanboy thing. The real fanboys are usually the ones calling everyone a fanboy, just to insult people, rather than typing a well thought out response. I suggest you wipe that word from your vocabulary, you are equipped to properly use it."

You seem to have an interesting number of rules that apply to me, and everyone else...that you don't follow.

Well, since we've now explained the meaning of the word IGNORE to you...what would the word be for the definition of someone making rules for others they simply don't follow themselves?

I'll let you look that a mirror...while I get back to things that matter.

Which one is which? Sorry can't spot much difference.

UltimateIdiot9113351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

I honestly had a hard time telling the difference, the only way I figured which is which was by looking at the over glossy look in Forza 2.

komp3351d ago

Constant stream of comparisons. Is there anyone left here that hasnt already made up their mind.

Jeromejones3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

look at the name of the publisher on the website underneath the comparison pic
