The Laser has posted their review of Forza Motorsport, giving it an A-.
"Forza Motorsport is probably the most ambitious racing title on the Xbox to date. We're happy to report that the game largely succeeds in most areas it sets out to conquer. The gameplay is solidly challenging, with aggressive AI opponents, challenging course designs and a diverse set of options and racing styles that give it plenty of depth. Once you go beyond the surface, you'll find plenty of depth in the extensive customization modes, numerous challenging circuit races and Forza's robust online modes. The game's damage model adds more realism to the racing without overwhelming the sense of realism and authenticity that the developers set out to achieve. Forgoing the usual tedious license mode and instead implementing a unique Drivatar mode makes this an accessible game that's easier to get into. The less rigid controls give players a greater margin for error and make for a game that's enjoyable and deep without falling into the trap of excessive realism."
