Damn...it looks insane. I want to see in-game though, not Replays, as we all know how Forza 2 ended up looking. :p


Watch the videos.. The last one.. you have the view from inside as they are racing from the start point. It's exactly the same. Super slick.

interesting article:

Sounds good, I loved this feature in GRID


That sounds like a great feature to be honest. One of the things I really hated about racing games in general is to have a nearly perfect race and be in the lead until the last lap, then you lose it and wreck. That's 20-30mins down the drain and you gotta do the "entire" race all over again. More times than not, that ****ed me off to the point where I didn't even want to play the game anymore after that. Sometimes it can be a simple mistake like you had to scratch something real quick and you couldn't get your hands back fast enough. It happens :(

Expect to lose most of your prize money for the race if you use or have that feature on though.

Pretty sure GRID had a feature like that where you could rewind time a bit. I didn't buy the game, but it mechanic seemed quite good in the demo.

Looks like I'm going to have to re-buy the racing wheel I sold after I was done with Forza 2.

Better wait for the new one that will probably come out around Forza 3's release.

This does look very very good, and Im looking forward to getting my hands on it for sure!

The only question that I want answering is "How many cars on the track at once?!"

I'm really hoping it's not 8, double that to 16 and that will be awesome!!

Yeah, well I would wait until it's out. The only other racing game I have right now is Burnout, and I'm fine playing that with a controller. This new one is the Porche one?

I never like Burnout Paradise. It was too hectic and busy in the city that I couldn't recognize where to drive. It was just too overwhelming. GRID on the other hand is probably the best arcade driving game I've played so far. It's unbelievably fun.

hmm, I'd still bet that rewinding is a difficulty setting just like the optimal line , optimal line brake color, ATC, ABS.... all that stuff. And while there may not be a direct penalty for using the rewind in game, having it one, probably reduces the global difficulty level , reducing your prize money by some amount. Unless they ditches that whole thing with price money being lower the more assist you have on. Wich I wouldn't be entirely against, as I like the guy inthe video think that the important thing is to enjoy the game. if I enjoy the game with automatic gears and traction control and ABD and anti spin and a simple opitmal line, then so be it, why should I get less prize money than someone who enjoys playing it more "harder"

It looks a lot better than I could possibly have imagined on the 360, and I really like the sound of that rewind feature. I never bought Forza 2 because the demo was so unforgiving if you made just one error. I'm very tempted to pre-order this now. Are we Brits getting the limited edition?
