  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.

Este juego incluyo vehiculos y marcas que jamas volvieron. es largo una buena dosis de dificultad y buen plantel de carros. y es retrocompatible con la Xbox 360 asi que aca se tiene una gran obra que debe ser probada. animaos que les saldra bien la adquisicion. estoy seguro Expand

    Puts GT4 to shame as far as replay value goes. Graphics are the best seen on xbox.

    Gran Turismo, where now is thy domination? I have played and loved the GT series for an awfully long time and have loved every minute of it, Gran Turismo, where now is thy domination? I have played and loved the GT series for an awfully long time and have loved every minute of it, but Forza takes the Genre to the next level. True there are fewer cars than GT4, but everything looks and sims so much better. This is the type of racing sim that Microsoft should have put out when the XBOX launched. Expand
