Forza Motorsport 3 Revealed


EITHER THE DEVELOPERS of Gran Turismo, Polyphony Digital, are perfectionists to a fault, or they’re outright lazy. Because, in the gap between Gran Turismo 4 and the upcoming Gran Turismo 5, Forza Motorsport 2 and 3 will both have seen the light of a XBOX 360 disc drive.

Arriving on shelves in October with over 400 fully customisable cars, 100 tracks, a 60fps frame rate, and the ability to roll your car (how many races you’ll devote to that single goal…), Forza 3 promises to be the perfect holdover until GT5 arrives.

What am I saying, who needs GT5? Forza 3 looks more than mental enough for the most hardcore racing gamer, and that’s good enough for this casual gamer.


Forza’s previous tracks are there, such as Suzuka and Nurburgring Nordschleife, and Forza Motorsport 3 adds a bunch of road courses such as the Montserrat region of Spain, the Amalfi Coast in Italy and the American Southwest. Time to run your own Gumball Rally 3000.


Forza 3 brings a range of new game modes as well, with the single-player season putting you through a personalised racing calendar featuring over 200 different events. The online multiplayer mode gets a new games rules editor, giving you a new ways to play online.
