oh god, this game is sooo sweet...I have been anticipating this for a long time...I am sure it will be on par, if not better than GT4

01-18-2005, 03:10 AM
Is this going to be PC, XBox, PS2, all of them...?

01-18-2005, 04:09 AM

Im gonna stick with GT4. :D<p>This looks good, but lacks the small details in the track IMO.

They have been very strategic with it too...<p>US release dates:<br>GT4: March<br>Forza: February<p>UK release dates:<br>GT4: 25th February<br>Forza: 25th February<p>Also, on both the US and UK Amazon sales ranks, Forza is miles down from GT4, although it comes out at either the same time, or a month before. I also have to say that people have been able to pre-order GT4 since around June 2003, so...

01-18-2005, 04:39 PM
I have to say, Ive played a demo and was not impressed. The wheels are all wrong, and so is the exhaust tone. No control in the controller feel; it feels like you're playing an RC game. I've officially made up my mind: Im buying a PS2 just for GT4!

GT4's graphics look better.

03-06-2005, 03:15 AM
yea, GT4's graphics do look somewhat more realistic...more details and better texturing...I would expect GT4's graphics to be better than forza's anyways even with the final release, but I think Forza will be the overall better game...

This game is xbox only. What makes this different from GT4 is the insane level of customization

03-06-2005, 08:32 AM
The games now coming in may, i wish they'd stop delaying it

GT4 got delayed over a year. Your lucky its only 4 months

Seller Automotive
03-08-2005, 03:39 PM
This game is going to be SOOOO MUCH BETTER than GT4... The Reason??<p>XBOX LIVE!!<p>GT4 has NO network online gameplay... cant play people online, which for me is a MUST with games today.. without recent games like Halo2 w/Xbox Live, I wouldnt even be playing games. At 3am its fun to turn on your xbox and know 100,000 people are also playing. Playing a video game at 3am (single player/by yourself) is pretty depressing.<p>Forza Motorsport on Xbox Live is going to be so awesome... At all hours of the night you'll be able to join Hundreds of races, and I think I read up to 16 cars on some tracks.

03-15-2005, 05:02 PM
Popular science did a big article in their latest magazine, they said it should be beter than gt4 so they compared it to reality itself. They said it was the closest a game has let them be

Awesome! Then I retract my statement that I made several posts up about GT4 being superior in graphics...while GT4's graphics have nice bold colors and everything is crisp and clean, Forza's is deffinitely more realistic...those comparo shots from those links above threw me off because they said forza vs. gt4 and it should've been the other way around...

Also, Forza offers unparalled customization of the cars. Theres like 10000 different layers on the car to which you can do stuff. I also believe that there's a damage engine for the cars.

04-09-2005, 04:06 PM
actually there is a very realistic damage engine for the cars...one of the advantages it has over GT4 in realism...

Oh, ok thanx. My brother wants to get an X-Box to replace his PS2, so i will tell him this...

Here's an interesting comparo video between Forza (On the left) and GT4 (On the right). Also, Forza comes out of the left speaker while GT4 comes out of the right only. <p><A HREF="http://s22.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0K34CQWHZE8DN2ZUEN5M7BDR2P" TARGET="_blank">http://s22.yousendit.com/d.asp...BDR2P</A><p><br>Xcelerator videos, which will be included with Forza Motorsport or on a limited edition, much like Halo 2. I honestly think the vids are boring and made for people who know nothing about racing (Or cars for that matter), but oh well. <p><A HREF="http://www.xbox.com/media/games/forza/vid-forza-americanmuscle-0001-hi.asx" TARGET="_blank">http://www.xbox.com/media/game...i.asx</A><br><A HREF="http://www.xbox.com/media/games/forza/vid-forza-drifter-0002-hi.asx" TARGET="_blank">http://www.xbox.com/media/game...i.asx</A><br><A HREF="http://www.xbox.com/media/games/forza/vid-forza-european-0003-hi.asx" TARGET="_blank">http://www.xbox.com/media/game...i.asx</A><br><A HREF="http://www.xbox.com/media/games/forza/vid-forza-exotic-0004-hi.asx" TARGET="_blank">http://www.xbox.com/media/game...i.asx</A><br><A HREF="http://www.xbox.com/media/games/forza/vid-forza-ultimate-0005-hi.asx" TARGET="_blank">http://www.xbox.com/media/game...i.asx</A><p>BTW, here's the Forza commercial for anyone interested...<p><A HREF="http://s30.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0D7KKJPE6DT3S3JEIIYW80X82O" TARGET="_blank">http://s30.yousendit.com/d.asp...0X82O</A><br>

forza sounds better and the textures and surroundings look much more realistic by far than GT4, but GT4 has much better texturing and rendering on the cars...the reflections transition much smoother like when going underneath a sign or something than they do for forza///forza's are a bit choppy, gt4's wheels look better spinning too...forza's are too flat...gt4's cars look much better overall...frankly that, the fact that it has like 20 more circuits (I think) and several hundred more pointless cars is really the only thing GT4 has over forza...from what I can see at the moment...I believe forza will be overall a better game...but we'll see once it comes out...I cant wait...whats the ETA?

GT4 does look better in that area, but Forza is better in the scenery/track area.

actually i just watched it again...unless you can turn on and off damage on forza then I will wait for the final release to see the graphics of the cars...if you notice the cars in forza take some substantial hits but you dont see damage, and supposedly forza's damage engine is really really realistic, but it seemed to have been turned off duringt that video though...

sounds cool, but can somebody please explain to me how forza/microsoft (?) is able to secure rights with porsche ferrari and the like, but GT hasnt been able to?

I think the Porsche/Ferrari rights were just a cost issue. <p>I've checked pretty much every single store in the area that sells games and no one has it in stock. I guess I'll just go get a copy tomorrow evening...

05-03-2005, 06:43 PM
i was so pissed i checked ebgames and gamestop and they both didnt have it..my sister was pissed of drivin me around so she just said get it tomorrow...<br>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! pissed me off so much <p>the guys at gamestop tried to make me feel stupid about it...their like...well the release dates today but it was shipped today but the official release dates tomorrow..did you check online i was like yea..games out today as*hole

I hear ya! I called probably about 5 stores... all said they will have it tomorrow <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bonk.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Anyway, IGN and Gamespot have posted their review of the game... Gamespot gave it a 92 (Compared to 89 for GT4), and IGN gave it a 9.5 (Same for GT4). Seems like the biggest complaints are on the soundtrack and some cubersome menus. But hey, Forza does support custom soundtracks <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/banana.gif" BORDER="0">

well, its on order for one of my dad's friends at work...he usually gets a bunch of games then we send our xboxes to him to get tthe games ripped to them (a bunch of guys at my dad's work have created a group dedicated to xbox and xbox modding kinda) I got about 4 games today, one of which being jade empire which from what I've ehard is an awesome game, and midnight club 3 dub edition...havent got a chance to play them yet though...thank god I ahve finally found a way to take my xbox online...can't wait to start playing, can't wait to get forza...

I am so unlucky! I cant find my wallet which had my money and ID in it, without the ID, I cant get the game.<p>When Halo 2 came out, my XBOX broke before I could play it.<BR><BR>

The graphics look really good, but I am really into racing games,<br>I will stick with GTA-San Andreas<br>
