Sad to say, I had to look at the little icon to determine which game was which. Forza 2 actually looks better in some shots.

renegade3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Lighting and some other things makes for forza 3 superior but not a big difference in textures ....

renegade3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

In the second screen forza 2 lighting looks better, see the reflection in the car

PROFIT3296d ago

smoke n mirrors.

seems ^THAT^ is the microsoft staple this gen, since thats all it brings to the table

sniper-squeak3296d ago

I seriously had to close the window after the 3rd comparison photo. It just sickened me because for one, I could hardly tell the difference and two, the graphics were terrible imo.

table3296d ago

I thought forza3 was said to have pushed the 360 to its limits? They must have been BSing. Gameplay is what matters most anyway but it's a shame it doesn't look as good as the hype suggested.

bnaked3296d ago

huh? Forza 2 cars looking better in some pics.. Better light reflections.. hm, forza 3 is looking good, but the grafics are not much improved..

Game13a13y3296d ago

look at the interior, its just plain ugly.

2Spock3296d ago

Really people need to move on with there live's. I have never ever seen fanboys glut over screens of a game they cant own in my life. I have played them both, so i could care less what anyone else thinks or flase opinions they have.

WIIIS13296d ago

PS3 fanboys are a joke! Using GT bullshots to compare against Forza ingame screens now?? I've played GT5 Prologue the ingame graphics are nowhere near the bullshots so don't try to kid yourselves. Hey let's do a Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2 comparison btw lol!!

Syronicus3296d ago

That MS fans defend this type of development. All they did here was put a little different lighting on the old game and packaged it for full retail. This is worse than the Rainbow Six Vegas crap that Ubisoft pulled a while back. More of an update than a new retail game.

Well, you could say Turn10 was a joke, using Forza 3 bullshots to look on par with GT5 bullshots and claim definitive, but hey, GT5 bullshots still looked better. Much better. Funny you sound like a fanboy yourself. What a joke!

DevastationEve3296d ago

I like how the PS3 fanboys bombarded this article right away, good job guys! How much were you paid...wait, you guys do this for free? Man, you guys are more desperate than I thought!

Seriously...not even a dime was made off your hard work? How do you guys support yourselves?

Zeevious3296d ago

You may be used to it...
You may blindly run out and blow another $60 for what looks to me like the game I already own...
You may even like being lied too in FAKE Shot after FAKE Shot from Turn 10, but gamers with a healthy respect for the truth who don't see any reason to waste $60 that could be spent on a NEW game, that is REALLY new, not a bunch of FAKE PHOTO's & PR...Don't like being lied to.

- I have Forza 2, and wanted to believe this really was much better.
- Turn 10 told me to believe.
- Turn 10 even showed me glossy photo's to make me believe.

What I believe now is simply one thing...
Turn 10 is a Liar.


Real gamers demand REAL games...and it looks like I already own Forza 3...You can too...for $10.

Buy Forza 2 - Do it for Turn $10...

tucky3295d ago

Would you give a similar comment for a comparaison between Gran Turismo 3 and 4 ? At that time, people could have give the same comments : the same tracks looked exactly the same, the only slight difference was in the cars. In reality Gran Turismo 4 was a lot better on new tracks.

In Forza 3, the cars don't have the same hard sunlight reflection on top of the car but do you prefer that ? (people were complaining when Forza 2 was out that this light was not quite realistic)
In short, having played the demo (and having Forza 2), I can tell you that the graphics are a big improvement: new tracks are really gorgeous and cars have really less aliasing.

On the other hand, Forza 3 is here compared with Forza 2 which is, to my eyes, actually the best racing game (NFS is not as pure and polished).

Zeevious3294d ago (Edited 3294d ago )

or simply inconveniently true.

I ALSO own Forza 2 & yes, I've played the demo...who interested in this game hasn't?

Your question about comparing GT3 & GT4 in fact really proves the validity of comparing Forza 3 & 2! Yes...I would & I have compared the two GTs. Now I'm comparing Forza.

Forza 3 is definitely not a "big" improvement in graphics...anyone looking at these screenshots, myself included often had to look for the logo to tell if the shots are from 2 or 3!

A big improvement would have been if Turn 10's shots paraded around everywhere where in fact NOT FAKE.

The truth is, you where lied to. I was lied to. EVERYONE was lied to.

I'll reserve final judgment after renting Forza 3, but everything besides the fake Turn 10 shots 7 ridiculous Turn 10 PR points to the actual game being nothing more than Forza 2 - Regurgitated into a new $60 box.

I can get Forza 2 for just Turn $10 & plus what is actually a NEW game for the $60 i'll save adjusting the brightness & contrast myself...

Turn 10 . . . Loved Forza 2 -- But your lies & fake shots have lost this gamers trust.

Bereaver3296d ago

And for those of you arguing about Forza 3 being definitive!


MetalGearRising3296d ago

Not even gonna bother arguing I'm getting my game soon while you have to wait hahahahahaha .

Shadow Flare3296d ago

lol, whatever you're stuck with i guess

EpicGamerSwordsman3296d ago

Like your dumbass even replies to comments that make you look like a total idiot anyway :p

Forza MotorSport 3 GOTY 09 CONFIRMED AAA <<<<< PP confirmed

spongeboob3296d ago

I hope you enjoy your little racing sim longer then you enjoyed your halo 3 dlc. Maybe it will keep you off N4G for awhile but i doubt it. While your racing around a track i will be playing the definitive TPS of the decade.
So run along and play with your little plastic cars, i think i hear your mommy calling for din din.

Why is doing so much comparisons?

renegade3296d ago

Because every body wants to know the truth.

PROFIT3296d ago

yes, everyone EXCEPT foxgog,idnmh,metalgearrising

seriously, i think the ms douches on this site, are microsoft employees.

ActionBastard3296d ago

Why haven't you ever asked that when PS3 games are compared? Oh! That's right...this is Foxgod I'm replying to.

boodybandit3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Turn 10 and all their definitive BS including the best graphics ever. This obviously isn't even the best looking 360 racer let alone best looking console racer ever. This is just a slightly more polished Forza 2 and that was no looker to begin with.

LazyDevs3296d ago

If you "Special people" don't like turn 10. Then why do you insist on coming to all the articles. Yeah thats right it's a rhetorical question, well good thing i have played both to make my decision instead of going by someone falsley doing screen comparisons.

PirateThom3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

I've also played both Forza 2 and Forza 3 and, yes, there is some improvement, but not the spectacular visuals Turn 10 lied about.

The interiors of the cars are ugly as hell for one thing.

Basically, spin it however you like, the game is not as advertised.

sak5003296d ago

Why ps3 games are not compared? Well these get released once a year so we have to wait for their exclusive games to turn up. In the meantime we not only enjoy MP games but also exclusives. Sorry ps3 only owners just wait for their exclusives since 99% of MP are better on 360 and anyway sony lovers dont like anything which is on another cheaper console.

beardpapa3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Foxgod, you're gonna get these types of articles regarding a game that's touted as definitive racer and best graphics but underdelivers. You know, the arrogant statements? Like Heavenly Sword couldn't be done on dvd and only possible on blu-ray, but hey it was only like 6 hours long. Or how Sony did this before and the media lashed at them with a lot of articles too - the whole get two jobs to purchase a PS3. Irony that some people had to get two jobs in this economic downfall to purchase a PS3. KZ2 was getting this kind of backlash too when the first leaked images came out. Media was comparing it left & right against the CGI E3 trailer. Fortunately enough, GG was able to deliver a game that's on par with the trailer and in some cases exceed expectations.

I love comparisons. But as for Forza ones...


I won't be clicking the link to the site, in case you're wondering... :)

dalibor3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

Haha... feel the wrath... the PS3 had to endure when it was criticized from 360 supporters to no ends Mrs. Angel. It was really retarded to be honest, now it's payback even though I do not criticize the 360 much on N4G. There is a lesson here, do unto others what others do unto thee Click it. Click it. Clik t. Clk t. ck t(so you know the truth click da article I dare ya)
BTW I dalibor welcome you to N4G, is it me or have there been some female gamers joining on N4G lately?

LazyDevs3296d ago

And still to this day, i had to feel the wrath from PS2 fanboys back when i owned the original xbox. So actually the wrath never left, once a douche bag always a douche bag.

dalibor3296d ago

You got a point. I guess that is why I usually go to the forums more so than before. At least there it seems like there is less hate towards systems. But people do need to not take this kind of stuff to seriously, it boggles my mind how people from both sides can act at times. Game on in a peaceful way... and actually become more civil. We gots to represent the gaming community no matter where your stance is.

Zeevious3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )

I own Forza 2, and honestly having been convinced with Turn 10's fake pics & PR, comparisons like this are important.

If you have a PS3 and are just gloating over this controversy...go play a game -- I'll meet you in the Uncharted 2 multiplayer deathmatch...(prepare to die)

I'm trying to decide if I should buy Forza 3.
At this point these comparisons have helped tremendously. So far, it looks like I already BOUGHT Forza 3, when I bought Forza 2!

I'll still rent 3, but if it's not worth $50 more than what I already have in Forza 2, I'll just spend that on a REAL game.

How exactly can you SUBMIT the link then claim you hate it, and won't click the link to it?

GameAngel, please explain to everyone exactly how that works again?
No more Forza won't even click the link BUT YOU SUBMITTED IT & THE COMPARISON ? ? ?

Excuse me, but What the F * * * ! ? !
