NowGamer: Forza Motorsport 4 Review

NowGamer: Sony and Polyphony Digital made Turn 10’s job a whole lot easier when it released the long-awaited but decidedly tepid Gran Turismo 5 onto the PS3 last year.

This time last year, Microsoft’s racing sim specialists’ challenge was to make sure that Forza 4 was better than GT5, but then GT5 finally came out and, well, it didn’t seem like much of a challenge any more.

If Forza 4 was just a GT5 beater, we have to admit that we’d have been a little disappointed. Fortunately, it’s rather more than that. It’s a brilliant game in its own right, and might just about be the best racing simulation ever made. Without doubt, Turn 10 has turned in its hottest lap yet.

"If Forza 4 was just a GT5 beater, we have to admit that we’d have been a little disappointed. Fortunately, it’s rather more than that."

Sounds good to me! :)

I actually don't like the direct attack on GT5 - they're not reviewing that game in this article so there's no point for this.
Stating "It’s a brilliant game in its own right, and might just about be the best racing simulation ever made" should have been enough to make their point.

Humble was correct in asserting the point that there should have been no GT references because they were reviewing Forza, not GT.

I've only seen the fanboys mentioning the other respective games. The reviews of GT seem to - for the most part - focus solely on GT.

Consideringthe N4G crowd, I don't even know if the disagrees are from Forza fans who want to bash GT, or from GT fans who don't even agree that they have the right for an opinion to state Forza 4 "might just about be the best racing simulation ever made"

Why should they not be compared? Have sony fanboyys not called Forza the poor mans GT for years now especially before GT5 released.

When Forza 3 was due to be released, you could not go into a Forza article without a million GT fanboys smearing the hellout of the game.

Reviewers have the right to point out which one is superior.

i think with reviewers comparing the two will hopefully make PD step up their game for the next GT game. you don't need a thousand cars and 5 years to make a great racing sim and turn 10 proves that in spades IMHO

I love it how it instantly gets compared to GT5

ahh I remember when it was about the games, not the petty fanboy arguments.

great review non the less, would love to pick this up if my wallet wasn't already being robbed by all the games

Yeah its getting pretty annoying. Their not even on the same system. What makes the fanboys go crazier is when the big sites compare them.
