Forza Motorsport 2 Review

Huffing race gas kills brain cells…dead.

Someone should have passed this advice on to Turn 10, as it's apparent that the racing arm of Microsoft Game Studios was on the leaded stuff and off their rocker when building Forza Motorsport 2. Why? There's simply no way a development team of sound mind would attempt to create a game of Forza Motorsport 2's magnitude...

a review off a x box fan site lol

9.3 overrated

bring on GT 4/5

You don't "get it" cuz it's to complicated for your biased little heads. Go play your arcade games. PS3 gamers are shallow as they are easily satisfied with visuals over substance.

xbox, xbox 360, ps, ps2, ps3, Neogeo, Neogeo MVS, N64, GC, DC, Vectrex.
so STFU you little xbot ! You can't recognize a good game if it hit you between the eyes !

It's an official website, like IGN, that focuses on the MS platforms. Would you expect them to review GT:HD? Do you consider all reviews from Playstation-oriented sites to be bogus as well??

Grow up, moron. :o

For your information Famitsu gave Forza 2 excellent ratings: 9/9/9/9. Forza's physics model exceeds anything---anything to date. Polyphony has its work cut out fot it... particularly for a developer that thinks bouncing cars off of walls at 200mph is realistic. Some sim! Ha!

Now about Forza's tire physics, read this exerpt:

Forza Motorsport 2’s Executive producer Dan Greenawalt discussed Turn 10’s lust for cars (and passion for racing them) here, but it’s apparent from the end result of this follow-up that this development team is staffed with more than just track junkies. Greenawalt is a self-proclaimed physics nut, which probably explains why Corvette Racing was interested in the type of telemetry that Forza Motorsport 2 has the ability to feed back to the user. Let’s just say Chevrolet learned a few things about tire adhesion through working with Turn 10 on Forza Motorsport 2.

This critical tire information is not so much about racing cars as it is how rubber reacts to pavement when rolled, dragged, heated and heat-cycled. This would seem to the layperson to be a process of standard Newtonian physics, but it’s far from it. Believe it or not, for example, that a rubber chicken rubbing across asphalt won’t react with one hundred pounds of force if said amount of force is thrust upon it. Don’t blame Newton or comedic prop makers for this. Blame rubber trees and gravity.

Enough with the Bill Nye-like physics lessons. The point here is that Forza Motorsport 2’s tire model - developed in partnership with Toyo - is what drives it to supercar status in the world of videogame racing simulations. Forza Motorsport 2’s tire model is working extremely hard in the background, so you may not see it in action (especially with many of the game’s driving assists activated), but rest-assured it’s in full swing and refreshing its data hundreds of times per second (360 cycles per second to be exact). Turn on Forza Motorsport 2’s heads-up tire telemetry if you’re a non-believer. You’ll find temperatures, wear percentages and pressures for each individual tire; real-world accurate because Turn 10 and Toyo love physics (or at least crashing cars in the name of physics).

Hell YEAH!

does that make me better?

i don't get it ...

"Whatever the case may be, Forza Motorsport 2 looks flat and uninteresting on many occasions. Even during replays."

InMyOpinion3685d ago

It's the best racing game ever made. The gameplay exceeds every other racing game ever made. Spend a couple of hours with career mode in the game before you start whining. It's so obvious that most of you critisize it even though you've never played it (or only tried the demo).

ps1h1ch3685d ago

It's the best racing sim at the moment.Dot.Dot.Dot. I love it.

My score would be 9/10 couse nobody's perfect (Maybe when Forza 3 comes out - I'll give it 9.01, if Turn10 continues with great work they've done)

Saint Sony3684d ago

To those who whine about Forza2, lets put it in one simple sentence: FORZA2 IS NOT AN ARCADE GAME.
