After playing 2 hours of this game, I thought that it really did feel like an arcade game, but I was alright with that. The races are rather stupid if you ask me I liked just driving around more. I would like to see more cars and the e46 m3 (holds back rant). Multiplayer needs 16 players rather than the 8 limit they have right now. The cars are fun and sound a lot better than F4 (IMO) getting upgrades to be 100% discount is going to be a bitch, I'm at 31% now. Overall I enjoy the game and look forward to hearing from more fanatics who are playing.

Guys how big is the world? I didn't seem large from what iv seen. For example... How long would it take you to drive from one end of the entire map to the other?

Since i'm PS3 i'm looking forward to Grid 2. Codemasters is my favorite all-time racing developer. I just wish their Dirt series was less x-games b.s. I didn't pick up Dirt 3 but 2 made me nuts with the douchy commentary.

I liked the first Shift but the second one wasn't well received.

Probably 9 10 minutes but there are interstates where 270 is possible so above 200 you can go up one side in about 2.5 minutes. But diagonally is alot longer (tiny roads, lots of traffic)

Is customization the same as Forza 4? Are the paintjobs as elaborate?

found a way to boost your popularity level really fast. go to golf courses, around where the windmills are. I used a fully modded gallardo to do this. just keep drifting around them open grass area where there are no trees and get air on the jumps. once u rack up points up to 20k+ with a 5x ull go up in popularity by 10-15 points. it takes maybe 10 mins each time. a lot faster than just driving around town. i went from being around 150th to like 38 in an hour. just be carefull when u get air not to roll over itll reset your points.

this game had a chance of being a GT5 competitor, but it failed miserably. looks terribly arcadish.

one thing i do like about this game, is it will probably prompt the next gran turismo to offer more customization. more premium cars, more wheels, more racing modifications, more parts, more aero kits, and more paint customization choices.

After playing this game for a good while I'm already tired of it. Looks like this is the end of my forza carrier seeing how I will not be buying another counsel. Its simraceway for me from now on after I build my hackintosh/windows. Sad, I had a blast playing the Forza series. Hope you all enjoy it.

On another note: anyone know of a good driving sim for the computer other than simraceway?
