"After years of watching the competition, this is the best?"2.5 starson by jexner
Pros: Fun factor, ability to get cool cars quickly
Cons: Not even as good as GT3, car selection is okay
Summary: I was super excited to get this game; it seemed like a viable alternative to Gran Turismo 3 maybe even 4. I was dead wrong for many reasons.
First, the graphics are sort of cartoonish. GT3 and 4 seem real, tough, and exciting. The graphics on this game almost seem cute and annoying. My friends and I all agreed that Project Gotham looks a whole lot better than Forza.
Second, the car selection is terrible. Granted i am a BMW fan and when you compare the 12-15 BMW's in the GT series to the measly 3 you get here, it is pretty bad. While Ferrari and Porsche are cool, not many races allow you to actually hang on to them for long, making it a worthless aquisition.
Third, there is an element to this game which makes it fun, but it is short lived. The GT4 series struggles in this respect too; after playing it for about 3 days you are tired and ready to play something else. One thing that could make it better is to get rid of the stupid races that are just annoying and the long rediculous stamina races that just seem tedious.
To sum up, this game is okay. There is a lot of room for improvement and that is a good thing for Forza. However, it is dissappointing that after years of watching the success of GT they drop Forza knowing it was missing so much.
