Tech Gamer review Wed, 24 Nov 2010

Forza Motorsport 3 goes on delivering while Gran Turismo 5 languishes amidst a shroud of excuses. Technically near perfect, Forza impresses on all fronts with handing and modelling producing some genuinely stand out moments.

As another abandoned release date for Gran Turismo 5 approaches, I've been revisiting the driving game that, for me, currently tops the leader board. Forza Motorsport 3 offers a simply superb racing experience to the serious petrol head and pedestrian newcomer alike. Stunning, smooth visuals, tons of accurately rendered cars, punchy, evocative sound effects, precise controls and hundreds of technical customizations join forces to create a truly great driving game.

Multiplayer Gamer review Wed, 24 Mar 2010

Forza 3 Xbox 360 is one of the most detailed, realistic racers on the market today, as close to race car driving as possible in your living room. Its makers claim that anyone can play it from six to sixty but as usual, I'm only interested in the online content. While racing proper needs much practice, the novelty 'Tag' game hit the spot for me.

Forza 3 on the 360, according to the blurb, has over 400 cars and 100 tracks. But that doesn't matter one bit when you can barely keep one of them on the straight and narrow. Jumping straight into multiplayer, I expected to be kept back from the 200+MPH beasts until I'd made the grade, forced to drive Miss Daisy round in a Toyota Yaris. But Forza 3 online allows you to jump right into the seat of a number of high performance cars like Porches, Ferraris and Lamborghinis right from the off.

Family Gamer review Wed, 09 Dec 2009

Forza 3 on 360 claims that anyone can pick it up and play in minutes, but the problem is more the putting down than the picking up thing. Racing fans put off by the hand holding aspect of Forza 3 can rest assured that there is enough of a Xbox 360 challenge here to keep them playing for months.

Bearing in mind that everyone in my house likes a bit of driving action, the first two people to play Forza 3 were my wife and my son. And given that with Forza 3 you have the option to set the difficulty level anywhere from so easy you can play it with just one finger and one thumb to so hard you need to fit a roll cage to your sofa, I was expecting at least one of them to do considerably well.

Race Gamer review Fri, 23 Oct 2009

Microsoft Game Studios up the pressure in the fight to be the definitive racing game. Although having fewer years under the belt than Gran Tourismo they manage to deliver an update to the franchise that will be hard for Polyphony Digital to top.

To read around the game, hear the team talk about it and generally dig into the Forza world, there was no denying the passion and personal interest invested here. Their strap line has been "turning gamers into drivers and drivers into gamers" for some time, and they are now getting close to delivering just that.

Perpetual Gamer review Wed, 21 Oct 2009

Forza 3 gives me a chance to draw breath and reflect on the series to date. Acknowledging some shortcomings and realising expectations, Forza 3 on the 360 is a breath of fresh air to the series. As full of life and spark as ever Gran Turismo or Grid ever were.

There's something magical about cars. I've never worked out quite what it is that captivates people's hearts for these hunks of metal. But lately I have been admiring the sweeps and curves designed into even the most practical of vehicles. I'm realising that each car is the designer's creative genius, constrained only by the market's expectations. The Forza series has tried to capture this automotive beauty and has achieved smiles across the world as the sun glints off their digital renditions of the best creative minds in the car industry, while producing a highly accurate interpretation of real world physics and motor dynamics - to the extent of matching actual track times.

Frugal Gamer review Wed, 30 Sep 2009

Forza is Microsoft's racing game for their Xbox 360 console. This third iteration, Forza Motorsport 3, builds on the simulation modelling of the first game and the decal system of the second. To this it adds more detailed simulation and expanded community features such as video editing and sharing. Real world tracks are joined by fantasy circuits that offer a broad range of environments to match their perfectly modelled cars. Forza Motorsport 3 is more of the same, but for hardcore video game racing enthusiasts this is no bad thing.

To read around the game, hear the development team talk about it and generally dig into the Forza Motorsport world, there was no denying the passion and personal interest invested here. While other racing games may offer some of Forza's features, there are none that can match all of them. And, with good reason, both Turn 10 and Microsoft aren't going to let us forget it.
