FORZA MOTORSPORT 3


>> QUALITY <<:

What you are getting, is a high definition, incredible sounding racing game. I cannot fault it. I would say that this game is much better than its Sony equivalent GranTurismo. Purely on the basis of its in game physics, and graphics.

When you first play the game, you are invited to perform a practice race in a red Audi R8 – on one of the most stunning tracks in the game, with views that overlook Spanish mountains down, into a harbour, with a beach and an incredibly large cliff face. This is the costal road course (The La Dera Test Track, Spain)

The cars have interiors too, which when in cockpit view, have the option of moving around inside, looking in your rear view mirror, and side mirrors. One clever feature that I found, was in cars that have digital clocks on the dash board, e.g. the Mercedes C class – the clock will display the current “Real Time” which is whatever your Xbox time is set too.

Outside the cars, they are designed and duplicated exactly how they appear in real life – even the damage! The thing is though, the looks on each car are realistic, but it’s the sheer number of cars in the game. There are more than 200 – and if that wasn’t enough, there are DLC packs to download if you need to fill your garage even more!

The garage space is unlimited, so you can buy as many copies of the same car as you like, throughout the game.

On the Xbox 360, there are achievements totalling 1000G (I HAVE ALL 1000 GAMERSCORE, ADD ME: FORCE SIX) and these are all relatively easy achievements. There is one called Solid Gold, worth 80Gamerscore – this achievement requires at least 150 Solid on track gaming hours. Basically, complete every race, in every single event, in season mode, without ever skipping a year in the event list, and earn a gold medal for all of them. I have this achievement, but beware: G hunters, forza 3 is not for you!

Forza motorsport is made by Turn Ten studio’s who have their main HQ in the USA. You can add them on xbox LIVE: Turn10 Studios.

>>EASE OF USE <<:

The game requires a standard Xbox 360 Controller, or you can hook up a racing wheel for that more realistic play. (This is great when in cockpit mode!!) But the buttons to use are simply: Accelerate (LT) Brake (RT). To make the game even easier to play, in the difficulty menu, you can choose from the following options: (on/off)

Ø Autobrake
Ø ABS
Ø TCS
Ø STM
Ø A.I Difficulty (Opponents)

>> COMPATABILITY <<:

This game is only available on Xbox 360, purely because Microsoft Game Studios, and Turn Ten studios, which work with Microsoft, and no one else.

There is 1000 Gamerscore available for Unlock.

There is a strategy guide available

This does have multi screen set-up, but I wouldn’t recommend using it.


>> OVERALL <<:

This is a truly fantastic game; I personally consider it the best game I currently own. I am a huge racing game fan, and for me, this is the ultimate. You can buy the additional “special racer” version, which is what I have. It comes with a 2GB Pen drive and orange LED light – Also there is an FM3 key ring (Solid Steel)

The only downside I can think of about this game is the sheer amount of time it takes to load each track, and the installation disk. I often find myself being able to eat quite a bit of lunch in-between races!

The graphics are just downright incredible, and the in game physics is so realistic, that they even have Force Feedback for steering wheel users. It really does look, and feel like you are driving a real car.

Still, can’t wait for Forza Motorsport 4!
