The Seven Deadly Sins of Arcade Racing

If you thought Forza 2 was a hardcore racing sim, you'd be wrong. Sim expert Walter Hurdle explains why in's latest feature:

"Every review I've read on Forza 2 has included at least one reference to the "S" word, if not an outright proclamation that Microsoft's second iteration of its answer to Sony's equally arcade GT4 is a legitimate racing simulation. Well, I'm here to tell you that despite a valiant effort, Forza 2 falls short of the mark for true sim-goodness, because the game commits too many of the seven deadly sins of arcade racing.

Here's how the sim-gods pass judgment on every virtual racing title."

Its in the sim genre and does it the best so i'm going to have to rate this news post poorly due to its subjective nature people can say whats not a sim all day even to the point of multi thousand dollar systemsthat train drivers being the only sim but as a console game its in the sim genre(the feel of a car is simulated with anloge control and performence differences between cars and parts and controls with real world handling and mechanics).

This guy is obviously a PC geek, who thinks a sim isn't authentic, unless you have a racing chair, pedals. steering/shifter combo, and 3-monitor setup. If he's so down on Forza, I'd love to know his thoughts on the entire GT series. :o

Wow. I wonder if he can name me one of his supposedly "true" sims that doesn't commit at least one "sin."
