I found Forza more fun that GT4, but then I found Froza dull.....actually more frustrating as i dint have time to put into it. To be honest, if GT 5 didn't look like that there would be something very very wrong.

The longer I played Forza the more holes I picked, to be honest. Felt like I was just playing GT4 again.

Fair enough; I haven't played GT4.. But all I remember from the old games is reaching a point where I would have to basically 'grind' races to get cash to be bale to afford a car just to enter the most basic challenges. Which was very boring, and a shame cos I loved the driving.

Meh. Looks like Forza without the damage.

And 3 times the cars.

Forza looked very very dull when you were actually racing. Looked lovely in replays.

Its very possible that video is what the replays look like, and not when you're actually racing, but I wouldn't be surprised if it actually looks as nice as that whilst racing.

15 cars on track at once? If so thats great as GT has been held back for so long with only six card on track.

Question is though will the fix the gawd awful AI, and will they improve the handling to surpass the sumblime Forza 2?

Mixed feelings about this as I positively hated GT HD due to the atrociously dull handling model.

Also, regarding the comment about no damage, have a read of this:

"Kazunori Yamauchi said that one of the future upgrades will concern realistic crash damage with each body panel of each car modeled separately, intact and crumpled and with the resulting changes in light and shadow."

It's the game that'll make me buy a PS3, most probably.

Me too, but then Forza 2 came out and ruined everything. I think only MGS staying exclusive can save it for me now.

Not really bothered about that. PS3 controller will be shit for this anyway, and where's the damage? And online? FAIL!

Read my reply to your previous post regarding damage above.

Also, online multiplayer has been confirmed so I don't know what you're talking about.

Looks absolutely stunning, far better than Forza 2 graphically.

But Forza was doing all the good stuff under the hood. How will GT's handling and gameplay match up, I wonder? Massive advances required over GT4 in so many areas.

My lasting impression of Forza will be that it was dull graphically, that the handling wasn't that great once you'd had a good drive in different cars, the sound was poor and the AI was appalling and penalised you unfairly. I don't think it's moved the game on for car games at all, really.

I did enjoy it but none of it was quite how it should have been. It felt rushed to me.

I'm talking about Sony's online service being shit.

It's good they have cosmetic damage it, maybe they can start working on some actual damage on the cars.

The online aspect of PS3 will all get sorted out once firmware v2.00 hits with in-game XMB access as well as Home arriving at the same time.

I heard he said it was a "possible" update. Which we know won't happen after the game's released. Think about just how such a thing could be bolted on. Impossible.
