Forza 4 – Bettering GT5 in Presentation and Value

MMGN writes: If Forza 3 taught us anything, it’s that you don’t need to develop a game for five friggin’ years for it to be any good. Next to Gran Turismo 5, the racing simulator that takes 14 years of menu navigation before you even get into your first race, Forza 3 is a masterpiece, a game that appeals to both racing sim enthusiasts and casual gamers.

That’s always been the objective of developer Turn 10: to make a game that’s fun, accessible, challenging and deep, all at the same time. Being able to create a realistic sim that anyone can play is no easy task, and where Polyphony Digital failed – mainly in creating an experience that was tedious and slow – Turn 10 thrived.

With Forza 4 set for release later this year, we’re looking at an expansion of the great Forza 3. That expansion is driven by the fantastic Forza community, a group of gamers and fans that keep a watchful eye on every single process of development. Thanks to the transparency of the developer, something distinctively lacking in the development of Gran Turismo 5, the game can be molded around the needs and wants of gamers, with the ultimate goal of creating the best racing game of all time.

Wow,I like the FM series, but this was very biased.

"Next to Gran Turismo 5, the racing simulator that takes 14 years of menu navigation before you even get into your first race" shucks!

JFC, these 360 websites truly don't mind coming across as nothing more than hyberbolic fanboy-teasing waste pits.

TheDareDevil2554d ago

Just so you know, there's also a
It's NOT a 360-centric website.

Is it really this difficult to let the game come out and speak for itself, honestly T10 is still working on the game, GT5 was hyped beyond belief, are we gonna do the same with F4?

this is what makes people hate certain games and developers, when people try to justify their opinions as facts, sites like these have no legit representation of either GT5 or F4 yet the majority take their word as tho its gospel

lh_swe2554d ago

@MintBerry - Do they really? I think most people are adept at using their own judgement to decide what they prefer, I don't think the N4G mob is an accurate representation of the whole console generation...only the select ignorant few.

MintBerryCrunch2554d ago


i'd like to think you are right but gaming websites have tremendous influence on gamers who visit these sites to see reviews of a game, unless its a Triple A game with a major ad budget, a score such as a 7 could really diminish sales of what could be a good game, a lot of people actually take the word of reviewers as fact instead of trying the game out for themselves

im sure there will be sites out there that will give F4 scores similar to GT5 10's, 9's and the moment a few start giving out 8's or 7's people start screaming "overrated" "overhyped" when all it is is one person's opinion of what they experienced with a game

and the sad part is a 7 or 8 last gen still meant that the game was good, today its either 9 or above, anything else is FAIL

@ TheDareDevil: It doesn't take a system-specific website to produce complete fanboy trash, and that's exactly what this rant is. The first couple of sentences alone reveal the author's true colors.

If anything, this exposes N4G's biggest flaw. The absolute and complete lack of quality control. Any idiotic troll can start a blog and submit his own "articles" to the site.

I stopped reading at "bettering"

lh_swe2554d ago

Bettering - 1. Improve on or surpass (an existing or previous level or achievement): "bettering his previous time by ten minutes".
2. Make (something) better; improve: "his ideas for bettering the working conditions".

You've just been schooled son!

Arnon2554d ago

Lol @ the disagrees. Apparently "bettering" isn't a word according to the people on N4G.

Sarcasm2554d ago (Edited 2554d ago )

School who? It's used in the wrong context. The way it is used is that it implies that it will improve GT5's presentation and value.

For example, "Bettering my skills" implies that I will improve my skills, not out-do it or beat it.

It should have been, "Forza 4 - Besting GT5's presentation and value."

besting (bst)
Superlative of good.
1. Surpassing all others in excellence, achievement, or quality; most excellent

If anyone needs some schooling it's you young chap.

Zeixama2554d ago

If the author does really love racing genre video games , he should compare both GT5/FM4 objectively . Forza Motorsport are going to be a good game , but by not bashing GT franchise , unlike you .

This is all hyperbolic BS to bash Gran Turismo; a worthless article.

I'll approve it, but yeesh is this article one-sided.

Chaostar2554d ago (Edited 2554d ago )

There's no need for this kind of trash talk, I'm sure Forza will be a great game without the biased hype and bashing of similar products.

kingdoms2554d ago (Edited 2554d ago )

Me too and most others in the industry

The lighting engine and polygon count are sick

KonaBro2554d ago

There's covering the game and then having the author bash GT5 to get hits is sickening. This article should have never been approved but obviously Xbox fanboys approved it.
