Forza 2 was awesome, this looks INSANE! Too many good games coming out now, not enough time to play them.

I managed to get this 2 days before it was released due to play.com breaking the street release date I played this non stop the first few days I got it, it's amazing how realistic games are these days, god knows what games will be like in the next 10 years!

I've been playing this for the past 2 weeks. Its really epic.


I turn all the hud off, and stick to the cockpit camera with manual gears+clutch. Totally amazing when you get it perfect. Although i will say you level up FAR too fast compared to forza 2. I'm sitting at almost level 44 now with 6 to go.

The drift racing is supreme. When you get a good room of great drifters it looks insane even when someone crashes and gets 4 supras mauling into them.


= insane car barrel rolls etc.


Currently beasting it around the track in my 1000+ bhp 69 Charger. It's amusing when some dick in a viper starts crying when you edge infront of him and rape him up the straight and fast bends.

I played this morning before going to work, and lets just say, I got to work, worked half an hour, and then realized I didn't do my hair. Damn you Forza 3!!!

I started building my RX7 this morning, a red FC. Did the 3 rotor swap/single turbo conversion, rotor upgrades, turbo upgrade, all sorts of power adders, some 400+hp, and I didn't upgrade any suspension/brakes/tires The only reason I'm winning races is because it's fast in the straightaways I have to use the gas pedal very conservatively through the turns, it's sad. It drifts sooooo easily.

I'm still at like level 6, I just can't bring myself to play career mode. I don't want to spend my time driving crappy cars and upgrading them to make them competitive when I can just free play and use the Lamborghini Reventon

That said, I have been burning it up in hot lap. Setting some good times, I got 72nd fastest in the world the other night on the Fujimi Kaido downhill in an E class I think (Corsa VXR) and 30th fastest on one of the Amalfi coast full track in a Honda Civic Type R. To me, the cars that are slower in the grand scheme of things (Astra VXR, Corsa VXR, VW Scirocco etc) are in some ways more fun than the super cars. That said, I am awesome in the Koenigsegg

I'm a little confused, you won't play career because you don't want to use crappy cars, but you're having fun using crappy cars in the hot laps


I'm only playing career so far, I think I'm at level 8 or 9 now.

It gives you great cars really early on. I think I only did about four series in a D class starter car, then I bought an Evo and it was all C class from there on out.. another four series and I could afford the F40 and now its all A class, just started in S class last night. You get past the early stages really fast and then around level 19 or 20 you start to get very cool cars for leveling up. I just got the Reventon for free.

I always upgrade brakes & tires first in S class my Ferrari only has 500ish horsepower and I have to try and beat a Veyron.. the only reason I win is because my F40 completely outcorners the Bugatti.. brakes twice as fast, corners twice as hard

You should try saving up for the unicorn cars in the auction house. I wanted the Mazda RX7 spirit R but quickly realised my 500k credits is woefully small compared to the current 10 million one unicorn sits at with 3 hours left.



I can only assume it's the sucessful sellers that have the cash to get those models.

This sounds so epic, that it sounds as epic as the first ridge racer back in the old days when you had to get the bonus black and white angel cars...

Now I must buy a game machine again

I remember seeing previews for this. Visually stimulating!!!

One thing I noticed is the "dash" tachometer and the one on the right on the screen, don't match rpms at all.

Hit level 30 last night and got given a Veyron as a result. Hit it with the widest slicks possible, took it for a lap around Le Mans.... Holy ....ing .....


Then did another couple of laps with weight reduction, intake, exhaust and intercooler and went up against R2 cars in a quick race... HOLY ....ING ..... Just blasts by like they're standing still.

Do the R2 speedway race on the nissan speedway. In the veyron you hit 257 or above on the bowl and can earn 15k every 4 and a half minutes.


Alternatively do the le mans r2 endurance race (17 laps). Takes 1hour and 5 minutes in the R2 veyron and you get 240k roughly with no assists/hard difficulty. While that may sound scary, the veyron is so fast on the straights it will wipe the floor on the first lap and you'll be free to coast the rest of the race.

If you do that race for the first time you'll get over 300k as you get a bonus (1st time only).


So both races work out at the same rate of money but the first method incures loading times. So i use that method to get some cash for upgrading my massive fleet of cars. You'll also increase your drivers rank stupidly fast and get the horrendously good cars in no time. First time i did the endurace race i mauled 3 driver levels when i finished which meant i got 3 awesome cars AND and .... load of money.

It's an awesome game, and the car detail is beautiful, but there is alot of Forza 2 still in it, alot of the sounds and the vinyls etc are the same. I still love doing great design on every car I get, every car game I've played I've made a few EVH style cars. Can't wait to buy the Reventon...

I love the fact you can save designs and load them to any car nowinstead of having to redot it for every one. So i have a nice white to black flame paint job i can use as my sig now.


Still miffed that Turn 10 decided to do away with custom public rooms online. Retarded move of the year there.

Finished up my 2nd season last night. I'm at level 15 I believe as of this morning. I'm loving this game, a LOT. My FC is now dialed in with ~500hp, only slight weight reduction, I've got it set up to be an A600 on the dot, and I'm owning up A class races. I'm working on an A class Nurburgring tournament, 3 heats on certain sections of the ring, and so far I've won them all, got one more tournament left in that series. I did just get my first 2nd place finish, in an A class World Championship race Got beat by a Z06, and just barely


Even though I have my FC set up with only ~500hp, I've still only got 225/20 tires, so it's still really slidey. I've really figured out the pedal modulation:bleh: though, so I'm not doing too bad. I also dropped my final drive ratio down to 2.98, my 6th gear goes off the friggin chart It maxes out around 180 due to lack of power.

They aren't crappy cars

By crappy cars I meant stuff Im not interested in - seeing my brother do an endurance race in a VW Bora and having to look at its ugly arse for over an hour, or during an entire series of races in a Fiat 500, not for me!
