  • Summary: Forza Motorsport lets you own, customize, and race your favorite cars. You can collect models from more than 60 manufacturers and then race to earn money for upgrades and aftermarket parts. Test-drive your vehicle on various tracks, ranging from the challenging Nurburgring Nordschleife to the streets of Rio de Janeiro. You can even train your own "Drivatars" to use the same racing techniques you do, so they can race for you in competitions or train new drivers on your team. In addition to single-player challenges, the game includes multiplayer modes that are playable via Xbox Live. Expand

  1. All you need to know is that if it was a poker hand, Forza would be a royal flush. If a football score, it would be a 7-0 win. As a game, it is the finest straight-up racing game to grace any home console system and as such, is an absolute must buy.

    Forza caters beautifully to both casual racers and hardcore car nuts, which is all that matters.
  3. Forza Motorsport is like a dream for car lovers. Not only does everything play great, everything looks and even sounds great via the custom soundtracks feature. Seriously, what more could you ask for?
  4. Forza's main success is in finding a blend between pleasing the notoriously fickle minority that likes its driving games consistently challenging and demandingly detailed, while introducing a set of user-friendly assists that will ensure that even those who are new to the racing genre will enjoy themselves.
  5. No "Gran Turismo 4," but comes close to usurping the throne for the genre with jaw-dropping visuals and impressive online play.
  6. The first ever true driving simulation to arrive on the Xbox console has achieved the highest standards in terms of graphics, sound, realism and playability.
  7. The problem with Forza is, however, that this is a game that feels somewhat empty. Your victories aren't celebrated and are barely acknowledged. Tuning up a car is so easy that is barely feels rewarding to feel it going at top speed.

    30fps, go play the game and don't just give it a zero because you like GT4, or whatever your reason is.

    So far so good, some of the cars are off, but I will chalk that up to my inexperience with the controls. I have driven the Enzo ( game play handles worse then the real car does, but then again, I didn Expand
