    wvpid5.

    This was Originaly the 'Forza 3 Demo - What do you think?' thread, but as Shopto.net started to post copies today, i edited accordinly. Post your views on Forza, also share some photos, Car Specs and general banter, I don't have much to say yet as i don't have the game :smash:

    But I'm sure the cars/drifting is shit hot. I know Corey has it, So i'm expecting this his name to pop up a few times in this thread.

    Oh man, that video looks epic. One of my main gripes with Forza 2 was that they got rid of the mountain road track from the first game.

    James, I appreciate you're an enormous xbox fanboy so you're not going to take this on board, but while I do think the graphics from Forza look awesome, I think that GT5 has a fairly clear edge. Time will tell (and christ knows how much time at that) whether the gameplay will be comparable, but I think to say that the graphics from Forza are better than the GT graphics is kinda kidding yourself.

    I ditched my 360 in a fit of hatred after having 3 die on me, and went over to the PS3 side. But Forza 3 has actually made me almost tempted to get another 360. It's shaping up to be a contender to GT's crown.

    This is literally going to take an enormous shit right in the faces of the people who made NFS:Shift such a shitty abortion of a game.

    Xbox's always break, thats the problem :cry:

    I thought GT5 looked amazing, yes the Graphics are very good, but the Damage on GT5P Ruined my views for it, sadly. I nearly bought a PS3 for it :nod:

    No damage to the cars shape? Just bumpers "Hanging" off and doors open, thats what sadly ruined it :(

    I don't want to get into a debate about GT vs Forza since IMO both are good games. To me the important thing is not so much visible damage as it is damage which has a realistic impact on the car itself. I don't think the video shows what impact the damage has on the handling or performance of the car so at the moment I don't think I'm going to judge GT on that basis.

    All I'm saying is that the graphics on GT5 are really pant-wettingly nice and though the Forza graphics are also lovely, I don't think they're quite up there. Not that it's going to ruin the game for me at all, because it's way more important that you get a really good racing experience. Since neither game is out in its full version, I don't think it's possible to draw conclusions.

    Edited to add - as someone else pointed out on another thread, that GT5 damage video is clearly an early build of the game since it has some clipping issues and the in-car shots are lacking some of the driver animation you get in GT5P

    Yes i agree with you, I found Forza 3's graphics not overly-gobsmacking as they were made out to be, but the track is a very dark track, we'll have to see what they are like on a nice sunny day on a bright track, But that means waiting til' October 23rd, but judging from this video "Click the HD BUTTON!!!" it looks sexual.
