I Got Forza 2 and Screw GT! Forza is in a whole new class called a realistic simulator! I have built several bad ass cars on there and its taking some good time tuning them to drive how I want. for example i have a LS7 Solstice turbocharged and it a F'n Beast weighing in at only 2400lbs. This thing is a rocketship! Forza is extremely realistic and I know most of you are GT advocates but damn man give the game a good test drive beyond "oooo i think the graphics suck compared to GT." who really freakin cares! Anyway there are tons and tons of cool features such as stopping my race and taking a picture of my car then uploading it to the web for me and others to view. Not to mention the auction system totally kicks butt!!!

If you wanna hit me up on there I am APOCOLYPSE DAWN

how does the full game compare to the demo? I thought the demo was OK, but kind of disappointing.

The full Game is much more intuitive and interactive!!! the demo was highly watered down version of the game.

I got it 2 days ago! I went with a Mini Cooper S to start with. They have the E36 and E46 M3s in the game as well. Awesome game - I've already collected 10 cars from winning races.

My tag is tricerex.

Great game, you gotta play with the wireless force feedback wheel. The damage, car selection (minus lack of BMWs...blame that on licensing issues), parts, painting, AI, tuning, telemetry, online experience, etc, make it a car freak's wetdream. The sounds are a lot better than any other racing game I've ever played too. You can really feel the difference when you upgrade/tune your car.

game is amazinggg...and yes with the wheel its that much better. GT is good and will have better graphics but will be no where compared to Forza in terms of tuning and physics

I just bought it yesterday as well. So far I'm impressed. I didn't get started on the career yet so I just did some lapping in the e36 and e46 M3 and tried out the 06 RS4. Pretty fun. I also bought the 360 wireless wheel and can't decide if it's worth the money to keep it. It's currently still boxed awaiting my decision haha. $130 is a lot of bones for a gaming wheel, oh can't decide.

As for the late licensing with BMW, maybe other cars like the 335i or new M3 will be downloadable in the near future. Fingers crossed.
