You know what, I honestly don't care what platform Forza (or any other game) is on. PC, PS3, 360 - it would be great on any of em. I own the previous three and have played them more than any other game and I have good faith that #4 is gonna be even more engrossing. The demo certainly bodes well for me losing a large portion of the next few months . Now, to rob a bank and buy that Fanatec CSR wheel they've been waving about in all the youtube videos...*droooooool*.

graphics, especially lighting reflections STILL look too clean (that's a bad thing)

so much so that it's blatantly obvious it's computer generated graphics... no matter how you look at it, I can tell it's FORZA... well maybe that's a "good thing" for the game, and getting it known when showing screencaps... but at the end of the day, I still don't feel I'm driving the said "cars"... but only a computer representation of it... a few even said it looks "cartoony" and I have to agree...

I'm not saying GT5 does any better in-game... but that photo mode... WOW... some pictures I've taken can EASILY be mistaken for REAL...

There's plenty of road cars in Forza. If you look at the scale of the game, there's actually far less race cars than road cars. They also only increase in number every new iteration. I've never had the problem with too few road cars and my garage is made up nearly entirely of them. Most of the race cars are only there to complete seasons and whatnot.

Being a pretty big fan of driving/racing games, I've found Forza to be the most welcoming and enjoyable experience. The "proper" PC sims I've played always left something to be desired and I always felt rather disconnected from them.

Also, what games are you referring to that have more road cars than Forza? Not trolling.. I'm genuinely interested.

Needless to say, I will definitely be picking up FM4. I wasn't expecting as many changes as I read about in this review. I'm really liking the changes in AI since the AI in FM3 bugged me a bit.

So... Did they fix the driving assist being on even in full sim mode that was reported present in the demo?

As in normal non-performance-related road cars, like a C200 instead of a C63 Benz.

I hear you. Forza 3 will certainly be the best non-hardcore racing sim of all time until Forza 4 comes out. It's a shame that the PC has never had the pleasure of having the Forza series.

GT series is littered with the old cars but also the year older model, I mean look how many honda civics you have in that game, But atleast its better than going round in a bentley speed 8 24/7
Uhh in Forza 3 I used road cars in the championships all the way up to R2. I only had to change to a racing car in R1 because at that point all of the cars are LMP prototypes. The 2008 Viper ACR I used through R3 and R2 just couldn't compete.

As funny as it is racing around in an econo box when it comes down to it I would rather race around in a sports car or race car than some old econo box. Maybe it's just me but the thrill of speed and pushing a fast car to its limit is far more fulfilling than pushing a slow car to its limit.
