Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Xbox 360's answer to Gran Turismo returns in the most complete driving simulator yet. This sequel's goal isn't just realism though but accessibility, with plenty of features to suit every kind of gamer and car enthusiast.

Rival cars react to your every move, particularly if you get too close
The new rewind option makes a perfect lap a lot easier
Car models feature 10 times the detail of previous games, at 4 times the resolution
The new in-car view is just one of the new features

With hundreds of cars and tracks on offer the amount of choice could be daunting if not for the newly improved career mode. The game is able to analyse the way you play and the kind of cars and races you enjoy for the ultimate personalised experience.

The artificial intelligence of your rival racers is just as advanced, with some panicking if you get too close and all racing according to their own styles - not just staying stuck to the racing line. With an even more expansive suite of online options, all filtered according to your skill level, this may be the only racing game you'll ever need on Xbox.

Key Features
  • Real driving simulator: The most realistic driving experience ever, with amazing new features such as an in-car driving view and vehicle rollovers.
  • Garage greed: Over 400 cars from 50 different manufactures, all rendered in greater detail than ever before and moving at a super smooth 60 frames per second.
  • Track events: Over 100 tracks to race on, including the Le Mans course, and over 200 different events from circuit and drag racing to drift and timed events.
  • Chauffer driven: Optional driving aids include automatic-braking and a rewind feature - which lets you retry a section of a lap whenever you want.
  • YouRace: New online modes including in-game videos you can create and upload and extra livery customisation options and rewards for the best creators.

Now you can drive that dream with Turn 10's latest racing epic. Launching this October exclusively for Xbox 360, Forza Motorsport 3 unites the racing game genre, making it possible for everyone to experience the thrill of the world's most exotic and exquisite cars. Live the most realistic racing experience ever as you take the wheel of more than 400 of the most-beloved cars on over 100 renowned real-world tracks and exotic road courses from around the globe.

Bonus disc:
Forza Motorsport 3 is shipped with one game disc and a bonus disc filled with additional content, including cars and tracks. If you see cars and tracks greyed out it means that you have not installed the second disc. To install the second disc of bonus content simply navigate to the main Forza Motorsport 3 menu. Select "Install Disc 2" at the bottom of the menu and follow the prompts on screen. Below is a list of content included on the second disc.

You can play through the whole game on disc one. Even on a single disc, Forza Motorsport 3 is already the biggest racing game on any console this generation, with more cars and tracks than anything out there this holiday. With both discs, "Forza Motorsport 3" is an epic automotive experience.

Disc 2 contains hundreds of bonus cars and tracks that are in addition to the multitude of content in disc one - one could think of disc one as the game and disc 2 as a year's worth of Game Add-ons.

The Contents of Disc 2:
• Asian Car Pack featuring 37 cars from Asian Manufacturers
• European Car Pack featuring 39 cars from European Manufacturers
• American Car Pack featuring 28 cars from American Manufacturers
• Road Racing Track Pack that includes 3 Racing Environments (Rally di Positano, Fujimi Kaido and Nurburgring Nordschleife)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best driving game out there 16 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Not had this long, I went for the limited edition (XBox 360), which came super fast from Amazon, with all the goodies as described. When it starts you are invited to race straight away, before getting into the game proper. Graphics are superb, redeem codes worked flawlessly, to add even more cars and tracks. Steering control of higher performance cars is brilliant, haven't tried the countless tuning and other options as yet. First impressions are that this is an exceptional game - get it - now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game, best in series 22 Nov. 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game as i liked the past 2 in the series, this was definitely the best one, it contains 425 cars currently, with more DLC on the way, also includes drag races, point 2 point races and circuit races. Graphics are much improved, the online aspect is also much better, allowing players to sell cars, sell tuning setups, sell decals, sell designs, upload photos and movies. The split-screen side is much better, as the game now allows 2 AI drivers in the 2 player mode allowing 4 cars driving at once.

Overall it has better graphics, online features and more content than Forza 2, definitely worth the price tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Buy 25 April 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Some games you just have to buy and if you are a motorsport fan then Forza 3 has to be top of your list.

Quite a chunk of this game has already appeared in Forza 2 so you are not getting an entirely new game. There is a substantial amount of new content and as you'd expect, the graphics have been improved and they are superb.

The menu system have been given an overhaul and is much simpler. There are hundreds of events to take part in and you simply work through them in sequence. In free play mode, you get access to all the cars and tracks to either do a single race or a hot lap. The championship mode requires you to earn credits and buy cars to enter into events. You can also upgrade specs and tinker with settings. An auto upgrade is available which upgrades to suit your budget. There are plenty assists to suit different levels of ability. The more you turn off the more credits earned. You also earn XP as you progress. Credits and XP are also earned in the multiplayer.

Hanlding is weighty and the cars handle as you'd expect. There is a generous mix of types from the humble Ford Fiesta to supercars in the 400 or so available. All perfectly detailed. You'll need to install disc 2 to a hard drive so unless you have one, the game experience will be limited. Install both discs takes up a good chunk of space though, about 8GB.

The special addition comes with redeemable codes for extra cars, tracks and a theme. They need to be downloaded so you'll only benefit from this edition if you are on-line. As a VIP you'll also get gift cars from Turn 10 from time to time. You can use these in Free Play but still have to buy them for use in events. You also get a nifty key ring and USB stick to store your magic moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars 7 MONTHS ON STILL VERY ADDICTIVE! 29 Oct. 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've owned this game since it's release date way back in october 2009, and 7 months on this game still impresses me, I've been a fan since the first forza on the original xbox console, so this was an absolute must buy for me.

For those of you thinking about picking up this game please do yourself a favour and go for the Limited Edition it comes with 2GB sandisk memory stick with the forza logo on it and a metal forza motorsport 3 inscribed keyring.

On top of that you get a TON of extra cars plus VIP status & treatment online (basically you receive lots of extra custom painted usually VERY EXPENSIVE cars gifted to you from time to time for FREE) buying the the normal version of the game wont allow you to get these vehicles for free.

The 100 plus tracks are superb, I must admitt that some are graphically better than others, but overall the graphics are are great. The driving physics & car handling are pretty spot on and you can tweak vitually evrything ingame to your hearts desire.

New trsck packs and cars are released almost on a monthly basis, the latest DLC pack was the Exotic car pack which introduced 10 new car manufacturers & their cars to the game.

So is this game worth buying... In a word YES it is, BUY IT NOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Value 21 Aug. 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Wanted the game for quite a while and saw the limited edition version and had to get it. Very glad that I did as the extra content is very worth the extra money. The memory stick has loads of storage and I will be using it for college when I go back in September. The keyring has some weight to it so you know it is on your keys, but I suppose that is a good thing really. The free cars that you get for the actual game are very useful when you are working your way through the ranks and make even the toughest races that bit easier.

Forza 3 is perfect for anyone to play regardless of how good you are at driving games, you can have all the optional driving aids on to help the most novice of gamers or if you think you can handle it, you can turn them all off, either way the game is very enjoyable and I highly recommend it to anyone
