...anyone played out seeing as it is "out"...?
Is it?? Where can you get the demo from? I'm really looking forward to this one!
Ah I see official xbox magazine have it on the cover!
The US or UK edition of the magazine?
Latest UK OXM arrived here this morning. No Forza demo - but scheduled for the next issue, due out Dec 30th.
Damn it was supposed to be on the Nov 30th issue. Maybe it will be available to download somewhere.
I got the holiday issue of US OXM and it has Conkers and Forza playable demo. They are both a mixed bag IMO.
Conkers is fun (as expected) but all the fun aside it is just another 3rd person fun action platformer/shooter. I cant help feeling the game is too late, if it had come out at the beginning of the Xbox era then it may be a different story IMO.
Now Forza, well I love racing games and will pick up anything with cars in it..and I mean anything. This was/is a real let down in many ways. Graphically, I know it'll be an early code, is very bland and not really above average. It doesn't outshine PGR2 in anyway graphically which means TOCA Race Driver 2 is head and shoulders above it. The car models are nice, but again TOCA's are stunning anyway. The sound is nothing special and then we have the AI..eek, it's PGR2. Not as bad as GT3 but not as good as Toca.
I always like to check AI out by screamin up to corners and hitting the brakes while looking behind me to see what the car/s behind do. Then I'll turn the other way and go round the track the wrong way til I see a car and see what it does. On both occassions it failed. There was one time when a car tried to miss me but when it actually made contact it tried to carry on going straight (when it was hitting me). Again TOCA has this sussed.
I was/am very dissapointed with the Forza demo and can only hope that many improvements are made between now and the final release.
These are oinly my opinions but I have the demo and have tried the Forza demo a good few times to try and 'get it'..but I dont see anything special at all
Steve when you have had enough of the demo disc send it my way mate.
I was looking forward to both those games but from what you've said it's not sounding too good.
your lucky day mate Drop me your addy and I'll send it on it's merry way It's US of course
