Default Re: ***Official Gran Turismo 5 Feedback Thread***

My friend came over this weekend, and I got to experience Forza 3 for the first time. My overall impression was that I liked Forza 3 better than GT5. It just felt.... better. The graphics seemed better, the AI seemed better, the maps were more detailed, etc. I also felt that the engine sounds in Forza 3 were higher quality as well. It seriously feels like the developers of GT5 simply put the mic next to the engine on each car, and then just muffled it if you were farther away. That really doesn't sit well with me, as some of the engines sound nothing like the do in real life. (Mustang GT V8 and Audi R8 V8 sounds like crap IMO, but in real life, their V8 sounds are intoxicating)

That being said, I am getting into it more and more as I rise in levels, and I haven't even tapped into multiplayer yet, which I'm really looking forward to. I still don't know which one is the more complete game. I would hope it would be GT5 considering how much time they took to develop it, but honestly, I'm not so sure about that.
