Forza Motorsport 2 Preview

It's been a great year for announcements from Microsoft, but it's arguably been its quietest ever year for first party games. And to make matters worse, Forza Motorsport 2 recently slipped out of its tentative December release slot to Q1 2007. But all the headline-grabbing announcements at X06 succeeded in taking the spotlight off such trifling matters, and ensured that Turn 10's game could make a low profile public playable debut.

Not that there was much to see anyway. In what amounted to little more than a taster of what to expect early next year, Eurogamer were treated to an opportunity to test the Tsukuba Circuit (70 will feature in the full game, from 18 environments) in a limited selection of cars across the spectrum including the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo as well as the less spectacular models from Ford and Subaru. Some 300 cars are expected to make the final cut, with Porsche, General Motors, Nissan and Volkswagen all figuring, with 13 real-world licensed circuits including the Road America race track, Silverstone and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Four new real-world circuit will figure, including the Sebring International Raceway.

With the lists of third and second party games coming I can wait out First party games. I see it a insurance of a steady flow of titles that has already been implemented by Microsoft and it`s fellow developers. This summrer was the best summer I have experienced in gaming history and is shaping up to be the hottest year. I got 9 games with a 10th coming next week. Splinter Cell!
