Gran Turismo for 360

I always assumed no racing game could compare to Gran Turismo. I thought the last place to find a good legitimate simulation racer would be the 360. I can't believe how wrong I was. I bought this game by accident with Marvel Ultimate Alliance for 12 measly bucks. I figured I'd give it a try since it came with. But this not only matches my previously favorite racer Gran Turismo 4, it improves all its faults! Finally car damage! Customizable paneling that actually affects the cars performance depending on wind drag! So many options I haven't yet been able to explore! Common sense! I'll probably come back and give this a 10 when I am more experienced and know how everything works.

More Driving simulator than racing game

I really like Forza 2 for what it is, a great driving simulator. This is the most realistic racing game I have ever played. It is realistic in every way. The driving physics are spot on, the tuning is accurate, the crashes have actual damage, and the driving turns out to be a lot more tactical because of it. Basically if you liked the Gran Turismo series this is the next step in the line. It is a driving game with great graphics and great realism.

That said, this isn't a racing game that everyone will go crazy over. If you are a Need 4 Speed or Burnout fan you may find this game slow or possibly even frustrating. This isn't a fast paced "use the walls to turn" racing game. If you are used to "hold down gas, turn a little bit, win" as your way to win races then you will have some issues winning races here. Forza 2 is the chess to Need 4 Speed's checkers.

If you liked the Gran Turismo games then definitely give this one a look, you won't be disappointed. If you want fast paced racing with a forgiving crash system you may want to look elsewhere in the driving game section.

i've always been a huge fan of racing games but found most of them to be really cheesy where you HAVE to have the Most expensive car if you want to win the race, or you can be doing 150 through a 90 degree turn. but not with forza. this game has an amazing customization setup and you can even tune your car to have just about any setup
