Alright...Is it supposed to come out tomorrow? I wanna know how it is...since GT4 got so damn boring. I think one of the problems with GT is that there isn't much to customize.

The problem with GT4 is there i just to much crap and the UI isnt as easy as GT3. I've still only played that game 4 times.

On the XBOX website, there is a contest to win the game with the Forza wheel that is specifically for the game. Haven't been able to find the wheel by itself though. Going to check eBay in a little bit for it. It's a pretty cool looking wheel. ?But the GT4 wheel looks a lot better.

I got it when it came out. In my opinion, it's pretty much Gran Turismo, but for the xbox. Same sort of feel...

I think I saw Fry's listing the game for $39.99 or $34.99 yesterday. Might have to swing by and get it there tonight.

yeah, I picked up my copy and pre-ordered BattleField 2, and F.E.A.R.
I must say that this game is fun! Graphics are better then GT4 and the cars so far seem to feel pretty good.
I'm working my way up to get the Damn Saleen S281

rented it Saturday, and still haven't had time to play more than one arcade race, which I did shittily in... not a fan of the gas and break being assigned to right and left trigger. Freak'n sat at the starting line hitting A and pressing up on the R stick going "wtf!? GO!" Only crossed my mind to try R trigger, because of Burnout 3 using it for gas as well.

Haven't even looked into seeing if that can be changed to my preferred GT style with gas/break assigned to the R stick. Will have to do that sometime before it's do back Sunday.

I love the visible damage on the cars. Something GT's been lacking forever. Damage models actually help make you a better driver, by encouraging you to learn how to drive, rather than just gasing it through turns by dragging along the walls. GT's lack of damage is archaic, regardless of whatever agreements were made when GT was first released.

Looking forward to getting some more playtime this week.

I'm gonna try and go rent it soon....I'm sure there will be no copies left. I've tried hitting a car straight on at 200+ MPH on GT4.....and the effect was quite disappointing.

What I really like about the damage, is that is you miss-shift or bounce it off the rev limiter you'll damage your engine. So no more just holding the gas down at the starting line.

I'm currently a lvl 21 (4hrs gameplay), and have finally fully modded my Saleen S281. I like the fact that since I upgraded the supercharger you can actually hear it whine up, same goes for turbos.

Drifting is also a lot funner (if that is a word) in this game compared to GT4.

Yup, no bastard cars.

It's very fun, and I seem to like this a little bit better than GT4.

had it since it came out the games so good im taking GT4 back along with fight night and getting credit for battlefield 2. totally better then gran tourismo. get the Skyline with stage 3 everything, gives u about 700+ hp and blows the competition away. Also if your just starting buying the RSX will take u a long way and get lots of cash in the beginning.

Make sure you get the BattleField 2 Headset, for pre-ordering BF2.
It's free with Pre-Order, and looks like this.

Motorswaps are only available on original cars (not like a tuner version of a car) and then sometimes you have to unlock a manufacturer's set of them for winning certain stages or getting a different level.

It's alright. The best part of it is the online part. I'd rate it 5.5 out of 10.
