Default FM3 is actually quite good!

I just got Forza Motorsport 3 and I must admit that it is quite good. It is a big step up from Forza Motorsport 2 which I also have. The graphics are much better though not GT5:P good but great none the less. The 'next gen' (yellow/hazy) filters are gone...thank you!

I like the addition of 4X4 vehicles to the game! I enjoy pushing the MB ML63 AMG to it's limits. I can see they took a lot of inspiration from Gran Turismo. From the backgrounds when viewing the colors of the car you want to buy to the interior driving position. GT5:P still has an excellent interior driving position but FM3 comes close. The engine and exhaust sounds of FM3 are definitely better than GT5:P. Most of them sound real and awesome!

The driving experience feels much better than FM2 even though not as accurate as GT5:P. However, when all is said and done, FM3 is the perfect racing game to keep me busy until GT5 is released sometime next year.

Till then: Happy racing!

why not post this in smackdown? Your post reads like the comments from the high council member to Spock in the new Star Trek movie regarding his mother. Every concession you make to FM3 is backhanded with referene to a game that doesn't even exist as of yet.

I played the demo of the game and considering I don't have a wheel, it played fairly well. Not perfect, but then what is, ya know... A racing sim with accessibility? Unpossible!

Personally, I kind of question certain things like rewind and the physics seem a tad strange but I won't lie. I played the demo over and over again.... This kind of thing usually leads to a purchase.. (Or would if I was in better shape, money-wise. Christmas sucks)

FM3 has a spotless record with one exception, its need to put additional content on a second disc.

Forza 3: I felt it was logical to add as much content as possible by any means.

Logical, but unnecessary.
