Yeah, it's amazing how different it actually came out, between the shadows, depth, aliasing, lighting, crowd, and the obligatory lens flare. :p

The retail looks much better minus the crowd IMO.

 

Also, can we please stay on topic of Forza 5 and the reviews. Thanks

It has to do with the depth of field. The sharpness you're seeing on the current one is likely because they reduced it. Usually, many only use the DoF that high for cinematic quality. Although, many do play their games like that, as you've probably seen with all the enb mods with GTAIV and Skyrim. The reveal also appears to have greater contrast and the lighting closer to what you'd see in the real world.

 

For what it's worth, I still think the game will be great. Just found the graphical differences to be interesting.

Next year when the Xbox releases in Japan they should show a trailer with the Corolla AE86. That'll sell for sure.

This game is absolutely amazing. Hands down, the best launch game i've seen on any console launch.  I give it 9/10 and would be 10/10 if it had more tracks.

 

If you go in expecting a career mode and a love of cars, you will be in love. if you expect arcade racing, go elsewhere.

 

The production, performance, presentation and polish on this game is just insane.  I bought the digital download copy so i would never need a disk and it started playing pretty quickly after the initial install.. i didn't see what the install % was before it allowed me to launch but the background download didn't seem to hinder any performance either.   I have uverse 50mbit.

 

hopefully my drivatar is out there kicking some ass, if you see blahism wave :D

 

honestly, it feels more like a driving experience more than a driving game.. just sit back and take it all in

It's a shame. Not for the cars as much as they've chosen the list quite well, covering all classes but the large reduction in tracks is a no-no (especially getting rid of Nürburgring/Suzuka). Yas Marina Circuit looks sterile but Bathurst does look amazing. However, things are gonna get repetitive very quickly.

That's my gripe with FM4, it got repetitive way too fast. There were so many events that utilized the same track layout. Oh well DLC could add tracks

Forza 5 looks amazing, but I noticed  the jump in graphics between its predecessor isn't as huge. It is an impressive looking game nevertheless.
