I'm considering getting it. I'm just worried it'll be too sim for my liking.


If you are into those Arcade racers, i really doubt there's much for you in Forza 2 ... None of my "Arcade" Friends like Forza.

I tried the demo and it was ok, but, then again, I thought PGR3 was a weak sim until I found out it's actually classed as a arcade racer lol.

god, i love this game, it's just so much fun. By the end of the day i'll push my Silvia up to around 400HP or more. And i'm going to build up a few lower power cars so i can run some of the lower level races. I could probably sell my Silvia on the auction for a good amount of $ but i'd rather keep it as it's my baby :D

Forza will be far too "sim" for you, i bought it and tried and didn't like it because of the "simmy" side of things, too much of a pain in the Ass :( Tried to take it back but can only exchange it, rather than get my money back (Seems GameStation has changed its policy) so I took a credit note and will probably get something else at a later date.

Apologies for being negative and slightly off topic in the thread :)

I am still waiting to get this game (europe). I first played the demo I was really bad and since i had never relaly played a sim before I wasn't sure if it was my kind of thing. But I played with assists on for a while and once I took them off it felt sooo much easier and so much more fun. Defiantly going to get this.

My one real complaint about sim games is the length of races. I'm not sure how I'll like it, yet. I keep trying to fight the itch by playing more Burnout Revenge, but it's a tough itch, especially when you see people showing off their cars and the like.

One thing about racing games, I either like them arcade to hell (early NFS games, Burnout series, etc) or simmed pretty well (GT). Maybe I would like this game. I'm thinking I don't know what I think haha.

Yes, I also thought PGR3 was a sim but, there was no damage or much things that was like simulator like.

In Forza do they have drivers view? Like with the steering wheel and everything?

There is an arcade mode in the game if you dont like the sim modes. I do think the sim mode is amazing though

This game is fantastic

The only thing I dont like about car sims is that you don't unlock things, rather you have to earn money to buy them. Not to mention it gets a little too technical for my liking and i spend more time fixing my car than racing really. Although the only reason I want Forza is to maybe sell to others skins for cars and then buy my cars with that money, if that is even possible over the system.

I bought it and just finished the North American series in the Proving Grounds using my first car, a Ford Focus. I liked it. I'm not used to there being no music during races so I may have to play my own lol and after losing my front bumper, I quickly realized that you need to avoid contact if you want to make money. Overall, I'm enjoying it, though. I'll play Burnout Revenge when I want a quick smash em up and this when I want to play seriously.

yes you can unlock things, you do that by leveling up your car and your driver, and manufacturers will offer you discounts/cars it's not the typical sim game.
