Brought an XBOX 360 and this game to cover the gap until GT5 comes out. My views are based solely on playing this game with a standard controller and not a wheel.

First impressions are pretty good. The game is very accessible so it should suit a wide range of players. The graphics are good but seem to be more on par with NFS Shift than GT5. Still looks pretty good though.

I have struggled to find a controller configuration that suits. The idea of triggers for throttle/brake seems fine but I would have preferred to be able to use the normal buttons for throttle and brake. One of the presets allows this but it appears that only the throttle button is analog, which means the brake button is on or off which doesn't allow for much precision. So it is back to the triggers again.

The tracks look great. The nurburgring looks better than the version on NFS Shift and it was great fun drifting on Fujimi Kaido.

Using a controller I would compare this game favourably with most others out there. I think that it models understeer and oversteer fairly well but it is some way behind the way in which GT5 transmits this information to the player, it also leans heavily towards an arcade feeling when you get the cars sideways. The result of this is that the cars feel like they lack weight, which diminishes the player experience. In direct contrast to GT5 a good example would be the feeling of drifting a BMW M3 around the Eiger Nordwand track. More difficult to control than anything in Forza 3 but somehow GT5 manages to get across the balance and torque that the car has.

Those comments aside I would have to say if you like this type of game and you have an XBOX, buy it. If you also have a PS3 get GT5 if you haven't already got it.

NFS Shift isn't bad either. The biggest frustration with that game is that there is a very good simulation in there somewhere, which has been, dumbed down which is a real shame. But you know what.... Get that one too because it is still very enjoyable.

So basically. If you don't have to choose. Don't.
If you do then they are all good games and the console you chose will help you decide.....................until GT5 comes out ;)

Forza 3 is a fun game however it is not without its flaws.

My first criticism is about the AI - They have no idea what the word "overtake" means and will take every oportunity to crash into you if you are in their path.

My second criticism is of the graphics - While the cars are well detailed and nice to look at, I find a number of the environments somewhat lacking and objects in the distance are not drawn in detail until you are very close to them. This isn't too much of a big deal though as you'll be looking at the finely detailed cars cars 99% of the time (I'm pretty sure the developers knew this too). Another note to make is that damage on the cars doesn't look very realistic.

Those criticisms aside, Forza 3 is fun to play, includes over 400 cars, provides a very realistic experience and a offers the player a large variety of difficulty options to set.

Players can choose from the following to change the difficulty:
The difficulty of the AI
Automatic, manual and manual with the use of the clutch
Anti-lock brakes
Traction control
Stability control
Damage realism (cosmetic, limited or simulation)
and suggested line (a colour coded line which guides the user on where to drive and when to brake)

Players can also customise their cars looks and performance to add extra enjoyment or you can do a 'quick upgrade' which optimises your car for a certain car class.

When it came out Forza was for the xbox the more realistic racing counterpart to Project Gotham Racing (Project Gotham Racing 4 - Classics Edition (Xbox 360)). Whilst Gotham gives you rewards for driving badly (in the eyes of racers) Forza rewarded and encouraged good driving. Forza has always let you modify your cars and tune your suspension which Gotham hasn't done so yet; and this adds an interesting twist to playing with your friends on xbox live as you strive for the best Fiat 500 for ferrari that you can build. If you are new to forza then you will fine lots of driver assistance options for new wannabe racers, even as far as automatically breaking for you if you forget.

In Gotham you can jump in and get some quick fun tail sliding around a corner racing in mostly narrow streets; Forza wants more of your time; it wants you to do lap after lap improving your times. For Forza 3 they have added several new race modes; including drag racing and drift racing; drag racing doesn't bring much to it for me drift racing is slightly reminiscent of Gothams style.

Forza Motorsport 2 was the best racing game on the 360. Forza 3 is an evolution; they have improved the graphics and added a lot of tracks. The downside with this is as with all current 360 games you spend a lot of time between races waiting for maps to load even when the game installed on your hard drive.
