LOL.

No, deff not a full 24 hour race. They could simulate the day to night cycle over X amount of laps.

Forza 3 was the best sim on the market when it was out, so I'm not at all surprised. The Forza series truly is top dog now.

Im gonna pick this up eventually, but I'm still playing F1 2011. Once i get through a season of that, ill pick this up.

I think next years version a Forza 5 would be better with more familiarity with Kinect.

I might skip this years Forza 4 and wait.

I have to admit i hate Kinect..... Being physically disabled, i can't stand u p long enough to use 99% of the Kinect functions.... and the more games that have Kinect features, the more games i'm restricted from playing

The 11th is a Tuesday, so I imagine it's coming out on that date.

You don't have to stand to use the Kinect functions for Forza. If you have a wheel, or possibly a controller, and also have Kinect, and are in cockpit mode, then it will track your head, so that when you look side-to-side, that's what you're looking at. It's basically an easier way to see your side-view mirrors and turns.

HA, yeah, I don't know what happened? I just assumed since I hit the first message, that it was the first one I was responding to. Oh well, you got the point, and I'm too lazy to fix it.

The critical acclaim is pretty much unanimous right now.....Metacritic is showing a consensus of 93 after 28 reviews, which puts it way higher than *any* racing game on the market, including previous Forza iterations.

This is definitely the new benchmark.

I've got the LCE coming next Tuesday, and I'm going to marathon an all-nighter then.

Quick Look: Forza 4

Review - 4/5
Quote:
It's still a beautiful game and it's probably the world's best driving simulator, at least for consoles, but a lot of Forza 4's changes feel incremental at best. The game includes many of the same tracks found in previous installments, and I found myself getting a very "annual sports game update" vibe off of it. With that in mind, it seems like the game's most die-hard fans and people who didn't play the previous Forza will get the most out of Forza 4. It's easy to see that Forza 4 is a great game, but after playing hours of Forza 3 back when it was fresh, it was hard for me to get as much out of Forza 4's largely similar offering.

I really don't see this guy's argument that Forza 4 is "more of the same." They have made the graphics amazingly better; they've added tons of new elements to the game (including lots of elements that will apply to online gamers); they've made the gameplay a LOT funner than any of the previous Forza games; and they've made the game accessible to casual noobs and hardcore gearheads alike. This is a genuinely outstanding game, and the most fun I've ever had with a racing game.

Im a big fan of the series so im interested to see where the game is headed. I hope the Kinect features will be able to be used in addition to the standard racing wheel and not just either or.
What game should I buy?

If ur talking about this or Gran Turismo, then go with Forza as its far and away the superior title.

Didn't want to start a whole new thread but anyone pick up Horizon? Awesome, awesome game. Really surprised how much I like this direction for the series.

I still play Forza 4, but I didn't like the demo. I may have to rent it or something to find out, cause I'm just not vibing it, yet, it's been getting really good reviews, and most people I talk to say they like it.

Nice, I should of purchased the CE as I'm gonna want all the car packs. I'm actually liking this more than the previous forza games. It has just about all u can want from a forza title while making the experience so much more lively. This is basically the need for speed game EA has been trying to make all along.
