Forza

Just got it.
Not even close to as good as GT4, but good.

Hmm ... I prefer Forza over GT4. It's more realistic, when it comes to horsepower and traction. I also like the damage model. If you think it's too easy, try setting the AI to hard, and turn off all the help, ABS, TC, SM, driving line, run in a manual transmission. You barely touch the brakes, and they lock up, too much throttle, and it sidesteps a corner. A stock Mustang GT will drift corners, with everything turned off, fully modded, most cars are sideways, if you nail it in 3rd, sometimes 4th.

The 240sx-se with the RB26DETT engine fully modded, gets squirrely at 160+mph. The Z06 with the 427 and a twin turbo setup does nothing but slide.

i dont know about that, Check out its replay feature and turn on Replay stats. It covers a LOT of variables, including tire temps, suspension travel, etc.

I think its superior to GT4, and i used to be a GT4 nut. A big factor for me for Forza is sound. Every car doesnt sound pretty much the exact same.

One thing i think sucks about forza is the Drivatar . Hard as hell to train, and takes like 80% of your winnings.

Yea, i think you need to give it a try, before you go off about something like that. I'm a HUGE Gran Turismo fan, I have all 4 of the series, including the original Japanese release of Gran Turismo, before they ported it for the states. I would rather play Forza, because it's more challenging, like driving a real car. A 700hp fwd civic will plow in a corner, no matter how sticky the tires are. In GT4, you can make it corner like it's on rails, in Forza, it will act like it would in real life.

forza is better in every way other than the graphics. the backgrounds in gt4 are the best but as for driving forza owns all.
