Videogameszone reviewed Forza Motorsport 3 for Xbox 360. Pro's: - perfect driving experience - suitable settings for every gamer ... Negative's: - no cockpit view in splitscreen mode - no reward system like in Shift
But is not the best ever.
What would you say the "best ever" is? (I guess I would disagree with my question also, Noone really cares what his answer is)
His answer would be anything with the name Sony on it and even Forza if it were PS3 exclusive. edit below isaac: And just how do you we view things the same as your account above? I've given props to Sony and MS many times because I own all three next gen consoles. Don't come in here calling people hypocrites because honestly your just destroying your cred. Not everyone is your little console war frame of mind. pathetic
The same applies to you but the other way around, so your bickering is nothing but hypocritical.
I guess we can finally agree that this is the most definitive racer EVER.
lmao stop it stop it, my sides hurt lol
best ever? How could it be described as best ever when most tracks are exactly the same as forza 2s tracks. (same skid marks in same place, colors, same billboards in same place), no graphical improvement to cars etc etc. I think what makes this game good is just the gameplay. Yes my avatar is GT5 and im looking forward to it. GT5 is going to be different to GT4. Vast improvement and graphically better. I like Polyphony Digitals style of gameplay. Im not jealous at forza 3. It just xbox owners need decent racing games to enjoy. Enjoy your duplicated game. Waste your money on it...
So if Forza 3 isn't the best racing game available..what is? How do people say its NOT the best ever, but don't have an answer for what the "best ever" is???? GT5 fanboys really need ta STFU, it ain't comin out till March.
How dare they give praise to a 360 exclusive!?
is a still great score. You don't need to be the best ever to be enjoyed by gamers. Besides, best ever is up to each person. Not by the media or some 'pro' gamers. I don't think it's fair for a person to say it's 'not the best ever' or 'it sucks' if he/she has no intention to play the game to begin with. I don't own a 360 as I only own a PS3 at the moment and I don't even have enough time to finish the games I own. But for me as long as the game is good, it's good news for gamers, and good job for turn 10 devs, sans all their PR trash talks.
Wasn't GT4 a PS2 game? I certainly hope that 5 is completely different from a PS2 game. There's no excuse there. Fact is, despite how much/less of an upgrade that Forza 3 is compared to 2, we've had 2 new games in the franchise already, while we are still waiting for GT5 to come out sometime next year. Despite what you may think about the game's graphics and content, it seems like the gaming media feels that this is the best racing game to date. Now, GT5 may be better, but we won't really know that until the game is finally released. Until that time, Forza 3 is in the lead.
Too bad you didn't let your game speak for itself rather than constantly dismissing Polyphony. All things aside, it looks like Forza 3 is really darn good. I hope it does better numbers than ODST because it's certainly more for your buck.
For the record, Gran Turismo 2 is the best racing game ever. Not even debatable, to be honest.
"They both have their pros and cons. Gran Turismo has the upper hand when it comes to visuals and sheer amount of cars while Forza 3 offers deeper customization/tuning options." Soda Popinski HIT IT RIGHT ON THE HEAD!
"I think what makes this game good is just the gameplay. " Yeah, and no one really cares about that part of the game... What? Oh yeah, that's the most important part, I forgot.
I won't comment on that but will say that, I am happy for 360 owners. They will surely not be able to play a better game on the 360 than Forza 3; not even Forza 2 comes close.
Quality>quantity all day sir...all day
Except when the quantity is 0, hehe. Naaah I'm sure it will be a great game though.
It would have to excel in every way, and/or not have any significant cons, and/or not being beaten in MANY aspects by several older games (GT5 Prologue) or games on (relatively) inferior hardware (GT Mobile). So far Forza is full of glitches and many other AVAILABLE games beat it in terms of content, even GT PSP beats it in terms of content. Even 2 year old demos like GT Prologue beat it in technical advancement. So no, it's not the best ever, unless you are a 360 fanboy, which allows you to overlook its MANY flaws. Hell, it doesn't even need to be perfect, it just needs to do the most and frankly Forza 3 doesn't seem like a Next-gen upgrade from the first Forza in terms of gameplay and content.
Perfect Driving Experience. :)
It still beats GT4 or Forza 3 in fun factor. God I hope they release it on the PSN.
lol glitchiest racer ever on a console cars pass thru other cars n the track lol but poleposition does a better job than this
Typical comment on this board waaaaaaah xbox sucks waaaaah But yeah, I would think the perfect racing sim would score higher than a 91, that being said, Forza3 is still a damn good game and if you can't recognize that you need to pull the dualshock out of your @ss. I have never seen so much insecurity on display in one place.
Butthurt bot is butthurt. Cry me a river, bot, jump in, and drown.
So because of one article outlining a couple of bugs it's now the "glitchiest racer ever"? Ha! You blithering little idiot. @Mooey Grow up kid. I feel sorry for your parents, I really do.
I love racing games and in my opinion at this time nothing even comes close to Forza 3 as a complete game. This may change early next year but we will see, it's certainly not guaranteed that PD can top it. Either way the competition is good for 'true' gamers.
Agree 100% with everything you said , pity that well thought out responses are against the norm here.
They both have their pros and cons. Gran Turismo has the upper hand when it comes to visuals and sheer amount of cars while Forza 3 offers deeper customization/tuning options.
I agree. Even though all the PS3 fanboys can do is try and drag Forza 3 down i actually think this is to everyones benefit. PD have been at the top for so long without any real competition so they have done very little in terms of community/multiplayer and customization in their last few games. Now Forza has shown what a great game it is surely PD will try and improve more areas of the game. Saying that each offers different things so we will have to wait and see, but this can only be good for gamers.
competition is great! For example, PS3 cut their price and MS follow suits immediately after. Some 'people' claim it's a desperate move. Desperate or not, all I know is from a gamer's perspective, it is great news since it means it's more affordable for people who's interested in one and more potential gamers to play with online. If price cutting means desperate, then I would hope the audio industry gets desperate as I'm interested in getting an AV receiver and speakers next :D
bubbled you up for a sensible post.
Can't wait to see for myself.
1 word = BLIND
2 WORDS = electric chicken. Man this is fun! Now you do three words!
17 words = I enjoyed the demo, but I am afraid there is to many games higher on my list.
Xbox sucks :P
Gawd if I had a 360 I would get this day one. Luckily, a friend of mine does have it and he is a Racing Sim freak as I am so I am looking forward to kicking his @$$.
It can be the best racing game ever for the next 3 months. Enjoy it while it lasts. its like if your football team takes the division lead while a rival you're tied with has a game monday night. sure, you're at the top now, but don't get comfortable.
How many accounts do you have? Yes Forza3 is that good and as of right now to maybe even beyond will be considered the best racing game ever to grace a console.
Does GT5 come out in January-February?
I don't see how it's going to be an issue for people who's going to be playing Forza 3 and/or only owns a 360. It's not like if GT5 comes out if it makes the game any less enjoyable.
Yet doesn't even know when GT5 comes out. Sounds to me like he isn't even interested in racing sims. He's just a fanboys using titles that he's never going to buy and (trying) to throw them in the face of 360 owners. Stupidest and childish move ever.
nope, GT5 will leave this in the dust
What does GT5 have to do with anythg?? Its 6 MONTHS AWAY! We all knew Uncharted 2 would be better than Uncharted 1 when it came out, does that take anythg away from Uncharted 1? Whats ur point?
Just pointing out an observation. Best racing game ever, but only a 91 score? Contradicts itself no? Anyway good review.
exactly what I thought!!!!!
This looks great! If it was on ps3 it would be mine. It's taking too long to get gt5 out the hype is no longer there for me even though I'm sure it will be a great game. I was curious, I heard somone say forza 3 has better customization, is this really true? And how so?
Video on Customization http://www.gametrailers.com...
I was just wondering how it compares with gt5, I haven't heard much about what gt5 will feature?!?
I don't think the information on GT5 tuning has been released. It hasnt changed a lot during the previous titles but im hoping they will add more options in GT5.
Gotcha. Man those forza 3 pics are sweet, I honestly didn't think it would turn out that good I'm a little jealous, may be getting a 360.
NFS Shift is much better. Even the in car view is far superior! Just compare it for yourselves if you dont believe me and pretty much got the same score too. Forza is all Microsoft hype once again just like Halo and Gears! Does not live up to the hype.
I compared the demos and decided NFS is an arcade racer and is no where near as good as Forza. It takes longer to load and has less content. Forza is the best Sim racer on a console yet.
I agree with game on.
Chubear you smell like a sony fanboy trying to be clever. if you want to join a war then join the army,console wars are for the snotty nose kids ok.
Well, everyones entitled to their opinion. Theyre gonna be people that prefer one to the other. NFS Shift is not an arcade racer for one. It is considered part sim part arcade. It feels just right to me. Im one of those that dont really care for Gran Turismo myself as its just too much and not really that fun. Forza falls into that same copy cat formula. NFS Shift is something a little different and it works! Rewards are great in that game and cash to buy new cars, fine tune and upgrades. Especially the sense of speed blows any of these other car games away. I had a buddy come over here and sat down and played the new NFS, he was hooked. He went out the following day and purchased a PS3 because of it. Its better than you think and this guy is a big fan of Gran Turismo and games alike. He thought this was better as well. The scores speak for themselves and NFS Shift is just less hyped and its a better game!
Well that's your opinion, I can't argue with that. Why are you here BTW? You don't have a 360 and you don't like Forza in fact in your past comments you seem to hate on anything to do with Microsoft.
and GT is the definitive racing sim on PS3, everyone's happy. *What's with the disagree? O right, one has to be better than the other eh, they can't be both classified as great games.
i agreed with your assessment, so i will automatically receive a disagree this is the law of the sony homers.
I have a friend who has a brother- they are 11 months apart in age- from may 20th to june 13th they are the same age- so during that time one cannot say i am the oldest/youngest per say. case in point, from the time forza 3 releases till gt5, forza can say they are the best EVA! Enjoy your time in the wonderful limelight turn 10 will it lasts. ployphony digital knows how it feels!
Nothing stays at the top for ever. You should know this.
Ive got a 360, dont play it much though anymore. Kinda afraid to, lol. Im on my 3rd one and a little sketched out to play it for more than an hour in fear that it will fail on me. I take good care of my [email protected] too, so it doesnt add up. Because of this it made me turn to Sony and now i buy all my games for that thing. I own em all and really liked NFS Shift. I just honestly think that the reason people are making such a big deal about Forza is because its very overlyhyped as i can say the same thing about Killzone 2. That game to me was all graphics and the same repeated enemies thrown at you over and over. It lacked variety and the muddy colors didnt win me over either. I just think NFS Shift is getting a little overshadowed because of Forza and all its publicity when in all actuality NFS is somewhat of a better all around game. Yea, you can do more in Forza, but is it all that important? Not to me, man. Im all about the gameplay and the feel and dont give a [email protected] about what kind of different bolts i can use on my car in Forza. That is just ridiculous!
i have been through 3 xboxs. I have an elite now, and I just install my games on the hard drive. The elite is going on a year old and I haven't had one problem with it. I only lean to the 360 due to friends, and I like the controller better for most games. The only hype that I have seen for Forza is on the interwebs were as you saw NFS: Shift commercials on the tv frequently. Most of the non-sense regarding Forza has been brought about from devs talking to much and haters hating.
Well, no one should have to go through 3 of the same consoles. These systems arent cheap. Yea, i prefer the playstation controller. Always have i guess. The free online is another plus for me as i dont jump online that often, so it would be a waste for me to have to pay for it. I did have to send in 1 PS3 for repair though, but was free and got it back in less than a week. I was kinda shocked at the speed it came back! Ive heard of people waiting weeks to get back their 360 from repair. Not to mention it was because of early faulty GTA discs that were manufactured that were locking up peoples PS3s. Was afraid they would send me one that wasnt backwards compatible. Actually repaired the one i sent in, so it worked out fine.
