Forza Motorsport 3 News Post

Blend Games have posted their comparisons between Gran Turismo 5 and Forza Motorsport 3.

Quote:
"Microsoft blew everyone away with the debut of Forza Motorsport 3 this past Monday. The Forza community put together an amazing montage of jaw-dropping car skills that seriously looked real. Sony followed up MSís dropping of the gauntlet by unveiling an equally, and even more-so, impressive montage of Gran Turismo 5.

Now, this is more like a preliminary bout for the best racing sim out there. Before laying down any money on a console of choice for a specific racer, you might want to know what both games will have to offer."

Gran Tourismo 5 is set to ship in the middle of 2010. Wasn't it originally supposed to come out a few years ago? We may end up comparing it to Forza 4 by the time it actually ships.

Polyphony Digital actually said GT5 is ready to be released, they are now polishing and polishing to make the final product perfect. I do believe Forza 3 will be a brilliant game, but I also believe that GT5 will knock it's socks off.

I think GT5 will be the best racing game ever. If they can make the racing as competitive as in prologue it will be an awesome game. With their visuals, now official WRC and NASCAR licenses, added damage etc. Forza 3 will struggle to beat that.

If I have to bet on it, I'll say it's a course with more than one car racing, though I hope since it's the official WRC license they have that their events are similar to real life WRC events with the time based competition going on.

Forza 3 will have more features and be more immersive. They have been doing damage for years and their damage will be much better than GT's.

PLus almost everyone loves customizing your cars.......we cant do that in GT....which pisses me off!

I only own a 360 and I can't afford a PS3, but truth be told, GT5 sounds a lot more attractive than Forza 3. I'd definitely buy a PS3 solely for GT5 if I had the money.

Maybe, I guess I just think it's somewhat comical that a game needs 2+ years for "polishing". If it needs that much time fixing/tweaking then it wasn't "done".

I'm sure this'll be a cool driving simulator...just not something I'll end up getting. I'm not buying a wheel for the PS3 when I'll only use it on one game, so just not worth it for me. Plus I'm not into cars/driving enough either.

My take:

Both of these games graphics-wise are going to show off the power of their respective systems, so comparing in this area is going to be rather fruitless.

As far as gameplay and features go, both are obviously driving simulators and will be very similar and very lifelike, so far as the user driving his or her car. If you're a NASCAR fan, their inclusion in GT5 will obviously draw you to that game. Forza's supposedly-improved livery editor and community features such as car auctions, car set-up sharing, etc. draw me personally towards that game, though. Further, if GT5's car racing AI is still figuratively braindead and "on-rails" so-to-speak (as an owner of all four previous games, this was the case in all of them), I can't imagine it will be but so fun for people who enjoy a realistic challenge on-the-track out of their racing game of choice.

At this point I only have a 360, but even if I had both I'd pick Forza.
