Default Official Forza Motorsport 4 Feedback Thread

This is scoring pretty high on Metacritic currently... released yesterday, anyone picked it up already?

http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-...critic-reviews

Quote:
IGN: Like the step up from FIFA 11 to FIFA 12, there's no going back to Forza 3 now. The changes and updates are too welcome and widespread. The improved visuals, the added cars on track, the wealth of new race types, the tweaked AI and closer racing, the ferocious sound and superior sense of speed, the even better livery editor, the lot. With Forza 4 Turn 10 has crafted a driving game like no other; it's hands-down this generation's premier racing simulator.
Quote:
GamePro: Put them all together, and you have the ultimate automotive playground. A place where car buffs can come together and enjoy virtually every aspect of car culture you can think of and engage in fierce, beautifully articulated competition. Its a remarkable achievement, and the reason why Forza 4 accelerates down the final straight and leaves Gran Turismo 5 eating its dust, crossing the finish line as the best racing game in the world today, tomorrow, and probably for the next few years.
Quote:
Xbox Magazine: Put simply, though, no other car game on Xbox and wed dare say any other platform even approaches Forza 4s depth, versatility, beauty, and community support. Its so comprehensive that theres probably nowhere for the series to go from here except onto the inevitable Xbox 720. Until then, enjoy every minute of this ride.

I want to try it but I just don't have the time. I still haven't played Dirt 2 or Shift 2. It's been a long time since I played GT5 although I love it. I just wish I had a dedicated racing setup. Setting up the wheel each time I want to play becomes a drag after a while.

I loved Forza 3, so I will definitely get this. Now, when I will get this, I don't know. I still have to play GOW3 (campaign) and Dark Souls, and Uncharted 3 and BF3 are coming out soon. Oh yea, Modern Warfare 3 is coming out this fall. ****.

Awesome. What about game length compared to F3? Is it a lot longer? Are there a lot more cars? Is it two discs or one? Is it a similar setup to F3 and GT5?

SO MANY QUESTIONS

Thanks sammy

It looks amazing. I just finished downloading the demo a little while ago from XBL so I will have to check it out. If things continue this way, Dark Souls may have to wait until I'm done with Forza 4. lol

Awesome, sounds like the handling is great. I have a MS wheel. It's not top of the line, but it gets the job done.

Better graphics and controls.

Fantastic game

In the "old" days, Epic provided plenty of free content for UT series after release. Just wish this is still the trend, instead of niggling microtransactions.

I really want to play this game.

i bought it, and it sat there while i was too busy to play it. Then one day - i had an hour free, the wife wasn't watching TV, life was good. I thought to myself "i'm going to play forza 4!". I turned on the xbox, and put it in the drive - excitement brewing. Then "this disc is unreadable, FK YOU BUDDY". I spent the next hour trying to get the damn thing to read discs. It detected it once and i got as far as the intro. This is the third time the DVD drive on this xbox has gone.

so now my forza 4 is sitting there, silently wondering why i dont play it. While my piece of fkn sh!t xbox laughs at me while i try not to smash it into a million bits with a hammer.
