So I was duped into thinking I would get it today. I can't wait for tomorrow! Anyone else stoked? Post links to reviews if you can.

Didn't like the track on the playable demo. Dirt seems to be much more my liking.

It's dissapointing that developer "Turn 10" skimped on the visuals. I know that in turn they boosted the physics and frame rate but I still think that with some additional dev time they could have boosted the graphics and added an in-car camera view. I'm on the fence with this title. I'll wait for some additional reviews before deciding on this purchase.

It's a renter. I mean, no ****pit view!?

I never have liked ****pit view. I hate how far back it sits you. I have always been a big fan of the high mount bumper cam.

The framerate hit on ****pit view was probably too high. Look at how ****pit view on the DIRT demo kills framerates on a PC.

PGR3 has it to no noticeable effect to me. I just prefer seeing more road.

A detailed ****pit view would have been sweet but I usually play with just the tachs on-screen. I find that the sense of speed is greater and as Tr1ck mentioned, you can see more of the road.

PGR3 was actually upscaled from 1024x600 to 1280x720 and ran at 30FPS while this game is running at 60 FPS. I am not trying to make excuses for the developers but these facts help explain why ****pit view was not included with the game.

I also prefer to play with just the tach readouts on the screen.

Wow thats very impressive. They also gave it a 9 for Graphics. I thought people were saying the graphics in the demo sucked.

People are nit-picking about the world not being fleshed out more. Last time I looked at something besides the road and other cars while racing, I wrecked.

The funny thing is if you go to IGN they give the graphics a 7 (Look HERE (http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/792/792572p3.html)). To each his own I guess.

Seems to me people like that would rather play NFS: Underground for all the flashy environments.

I think the cars looks amazing, its just the texture that makes them seem like each car could turn into the T-1000 if you piss it off too much.

Graphics are great though, wouldnt give em 7 myself (from what Ive seen).

The only thing I find distracting about Forza 2's graphics is the apparent lack of AA. Seems like devs still can't get a handle on that embedded 10mb of GPU ram to help with AA duties.

Maybe the old 360 couldn't quite manage AA and the 360/60 fps they targetted?

A disappointment??? What disappointment? This is a triple A status game. So just because the graphics are not hard-on inducing the game is automatically a disappointment?

Why isn't it available at circuitcity.com?

They're running a promotion for forza 2 and shadowrun where you get a free $19.99 game upon purchase of either of those two. But.. forza is still listed as "coming soon" :thumbdwn:

Just read over on the gamefaq's forza 2 board and I guess cc is just now getting the shipment today. Kinda weird, when I was working at eb we'd get the games in on Monday afternoon.

Am I the only one who's more looking forward to Flatout Carnage?

Like Burnout , but with the real 360 treatment.
