Forza 2 - first impression...

Post by ZXRO » Wed May 30, 2007 8:45 pm

Have been playing it for an hour now. Does anyone else feel that the cars are just a little too jaggy? Or is it because my television is so big and kickass?

That cool streak effect when you get a new car...didn't I see that in a car commercial? I wonder if someone had to pay for the rights for that.

1969 Charger! Yay. I wonder how long before I get to the Nürburgring races.

I only played for about 90 minutes last night as my stepson was being a 360 hog and we spent time drilling the pipes on my motorcycle. The game is sweet, pretty much the same as the last one with better graphics and a more robust paint shop. I noticed a bit of jaggies while watching replays but since I use the bumper cam I don't even notice it when I am playing. Gameplay is just as good as a Forza 1 player would expect which is what really counts :)

What kinda TV are you using? Been reading reports of people saying this but it varies based upon their TV setup (HD, 720p, 1080i)...

I'm running HD in 1080i and it looks awesome. Some brief jags here and there but for the most part ... beautiful.

Check out some of the new paint jobs!! Here is something a co-worked commented on when I sent him this link.

"I can only imagine what the new paint lock feature and the auction house will result in. I wonder if they capped your money or if eventually we will have Forza multi-billionaires…"

My setup...

I am playing on a Samsung 61" 1080p DLP.

Yeah, it's a badass TV.

Curious ... you running your 360 in 720p or 1080i? Maybe its upscaling.

I am running my 360 in 1080p, as it should be!

So I've never been one to race much in the first person camera angle. At least not until I played it that way on a 61 inch television. I am now a believer, and my skill has increased because of it.

Also, hearing "Spitfire" by The Prodigy and "Insomniac" by Faithless on the soundtrack put a smile on my face, even if the game edit of Spitfire isn't as good as the version on Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned.

I know it's not a '72 Falcon, but whatever.

Nice, ZXRO. I've been gnashing teeth to get my hands on this game. I'm not a big race fan, but I loved PGR3 and was obsessive about tuning in Gran Turismo. I've also seen some sick cool paint jobs around other gaming forums.

Alas, I have no money to buy it with.

Yeah, this game is pretty much superior to PGR and GT. PGR has more tracks but less cars, and is more "arcadey". GT is slick, but last time I checked you couldn't damage the cars or do custom paint jobs. Forza FTW. No 360 owner should be without it.
