    Is this as difficult to master as it seems. Loads of second hand copies knocking around in shops and here on the forums.

    Dont own it, but the demo put me right off............ :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Is it that hard? :confused:

    Its a fantastic game certainly the best racing game I have ever palyed on a console. It is tough I imagine Lives no fun unless you are good at it.

    The demo is not really anything like the final version. I can only think that the number of copies that are available second is high is because the game does require patience and quite a bit of time and effort to get the most out of it. Personally speaking its the second greatest racing game on the xbox, but in it's style of racer it's easily the best. Think Gran Turismo 4 only good.

    And yes it can be hard. And unforgiving

    The reason why theres so many 2nd hand copies is because it sold so many on release. Most gamers are casual gamers so once theyve had their fill its returned or swapped. its the same with other big sellers irrespectiveof how good the game is.
    The game itself is flexible and as hard as you want it to be. You have the option of turning on/off various driving aids and you get rewarded accordingly. Its a very satisfying game and most would recommend it, myself included.

    Game TM had a review and rated GT4 the better game. I thought that that would be why I'd noticed the same thing?


    (Neither's better than my Scalextric though :D )

    I've stopped bothering with the GT series until they sort out the AI and crash damage.

    I'd completely written off this game based on the demo. It truely sucked. But with all the good noises everyone's been making here I thought I'd give it a go ... turns out it's really rather good once you get past the first few levels of stock cars. I'd say it's a must-own if you like driving games.

    No way is Gt 4 better than Forza. They must have smoked something to think that :confused:

    think you will find as well alot of people dont have the time to invest in one game like this. by all accounts its amazing but to get the most of it you to put in some serious time. for some like me i have the time but i dont like to play one game straight really i like to play a variety of games at once.

    I know what you mean. I only really have time for Halo 2. My friends and I are definately addicted. Its sad really. Thats why I have not really got nto Forza, I dont have the time. Its not something I would play on Live. Its great fun on split screen with your mates though.

    For people who love car racing games its defiantely the ultimate console racer.

    According to my profile i've pumped 39hours actual racing time into this game already and i've only completed 71%. Plus the 250odd races i've done online. Boy does this game take your time away. :devil:

    Forza is great - the best racer PC, Console or arcade that I have played! It does eat up time though and I daren't play on it at the moment as work is too busy! :(
