Miles better when you turn assists off. Not quite Forza 4 realistic but still bloody brilliant.

Too much rubber-banding on the races, especially the plane v car one. ALL cars get away from you at the start no matter what and the arcade handing is a disappointment. It's Forza for kids so far. Not even that impressed by the way it looks to be honest as the realism just isn't there. It's like a fancy version of TDU.

I've not noticed any on insane difficulty.

Which cars are in the demo?
Old boss mustang, Evo X and the new Viper
Ew smile The FM4 demo had a nice set of cars, less so here, but at least there's plenty in a few weeks smile

Secret...

























In all seriousness I hit a wall and it fell off. Looks better without it to be honest.

You have it on arcade handling and your complaiing its not real enough?

I reckon it feels pretty good to drive myself, especially when you set the controls to manual with clutch etc.

Main problem will be us Forza regulars that are used to driving A600 & S700 cars that are tuned up nicely going back to driving standard stuff again like in the demo, making it appear a bit woolly in the handling dept.

If you think of it (the game) as a Forza 4 expansion pack with road events, it's pretty good.

If you're experiencing rubber banding, that means you're behind & not fast enough, so surely a good thing? Remember this is a game, not a simulation. Like Forza 4, I suspect the game will only become great when played on-line.

Urgh, how chav is this, they definitely styled it for the dubstep and purple wheels crowd. Pass the sick bucket.

One opinion I've read says that the handling is forza 4 at low speeds but has been simplified a bit at high speeds - makes sense if there's to be lost of weaving in and out of traffic at 150mph+

I have it on simulation with all aids off. The handling overall is too arcade-esque and nothing like FM4 which is the whole point. It's closer to Ridge Racer in this demo and thus very disappointing for me.

Not been into racers on the Xbox since Forza 3 in 2009. What are wheel options like now? Are the cheaper Fantec's (200 euros) worth a go?
