MMGN writes: Microsoft's flagship racing series is revealed to gamers as the Forza 4 demo hits Xbox Live. How is it? The gamers speak!
Competition is healthy. I'd say both franchises are incredibly respectful and they'll just keep getting better.
compared to the king of all racers which is GRAN TURISMO 5®, this is a simple fact. F4 will satisfy the tastes of the less demanding, sure, but the purists will always demand GT. Always.
I think the purist are actually playing iRacing League with real Indy, Grand-Am, and Nascar drivers.
I'm a GT purist but The racing aspect of GT is not challenging so I play F1 2011 now and 2010 before it. To me GT5 is a solid racer but not hardcore and Forza 3 is worse I dont know about 4, i havent tried it
Its more than a challenger, what little I played is better than Gt5.
its got to be the best looking racer ive seen, sadly GT5 was all hype, glitchy graphics, and made to look bigger then it is by including all those ps2 cars and tracks.
What? Forza 3 metacritic is 92 and Gt5s is 85, surely it's Gt that has to strike back?
Ps move has better scores than kinect uncharted 2 has a better metacritic than gears of war 2 even gears of war 2 has a better metacritic than gears of war 3 . See what I did their
You proved my point?
So your saying kinect has to strike back to ps move and gears of war 3 has to strike back to gears of war 2 and uncharted 2 aand hey why not say every racing game has to strike back to Mario kart
Pretty much, if you are in a genre and there is a better game in the same genre that's your target to beat, otherwise your just pumping out clones like cod does
A game for casuals with rewind feature versus a game for hardcore which can't be popular with the general crowd. Sure they are competitors... only in minds of the same people who compare COD and BF.
Game with saves mid way and stupid AI, bad damage, unlockable damage, not enough customization, bad online vs Forza 4
You're bringing up in-game saves? I guess you've got 24 hours to spend on an endurance race, then. Don't be daft. You honestly cannot compare in-race saving to rewinding your screw-ups. That alone screams ARCADE. Lemme know when playing Forza 4 qualifies you for a REAL RACING LICENSE.
Forza is nothing more than a poor mans Gran Turismo. Just go back to playing KINECT or whatever the heck you call it. I'm sick of people comparing crappy, second best, Xbox 360 games to high quality PS3 exclusives!
I'm sick of people disregarding great games because of a misguided thought their console is the best. See a game for what it is and not the console it's on as there is great titles on both consoles and both consoles have their DOWN time.
Forza 4 looks good and plays well, but the underlining fact (from playing the demo) is that the physics weren't hyper realistic, which can be a good thing if you consider that perhaps it is catering for those who aren't necessary vested in the racing genre.
Whilst it's obvious Turn10 are hugely inspired by Polyphony, I don't see Forza as a challenger to GT5 (or vice versa) because they are on different consoles. Competition is healthy, which is good - but I'm not sure Polyphony see anyone else as competition, they just do their own thing. In my humble opinion I have always found Forza's driving mechanics felt a little off, even with driver assists turned down - but it may be because the graphics are a little more cartoony. I also think GT5 was a bit of a disappointment. Normally I don't notice a bit of screen tearing - but I found it distracting, especially with a few frame hiccups thrown in. Also Polyphony appear to have built a simulator, but forgot to put a really engaging game around it.
I can't wait for spec II in a few weeks
GT5 is the KING and F4 is the BOSS
