    GO get it. Really surprised at the level of detail in race and the rock steady 60fps. Game feels great (fanatec wheel gt2), looks very nice and runs like a champ. Engine sounds are fantastic and I doubt Forza 3 or GT5 will get touched when the final hits next week. No kinect head tracking in the demo however and no autovista.

    I really wish this dev would make a pc game. They obviously have some insane talent and are masters at optimization. I could never imagined when I got the 360 that it would ever pump out visuals like this. This game on a 580 at 1080p though would be mind bending. Of course a pc version would be better but I doubt we will ever see one.

    The demo scratches the surface. The top gear affiliation adds some humor and levity which is nice. You should really read on the new features if you like 3. I love 3 and I am foaming for 4. Some oddball stuff in there too that might be fun. Online car soccer and car bowling. Rivals mode is very cool as you get to play against online ghosts in a unique way. It looks to be quite feature full. I can tell you from owning a pro sim wheel that the force feedback is very good.

    Wow really?

    I'm on the opposite end of the scale. I was expecting the demo to lower my expectations of the final product but after playing it for a few hours i am completely blown away. The ONLY thing i could really nitpick about is the jaggies. Kind of expected for the hardware the game is running on, they feel far less pronounced than in F3 though. Oh right and it would be nice to turn the music off... It is a demo though.

    Good points? It looks several times better than F3, the handling is an absolute blast, the sounds are better than before. Not to mention all the new online features/modes coming!

    CANNOT WAIT TILL THE 13TH WHEN ITS RELEASED HERE!

    Same here but i can clearly see and feel the difference in both car detail and handling.
    Anyway probably worth more than its worth... plus kinect support how cool is that.

    Mmm i can see a SOME in the car selection bit when your picking your paint colour and a fair bit more before the race starts when its showing your car during the countdown. I said i'm nitpicking though.

    Some neg points:
    - still no race atmosphere, only great engine sounds, but no audience sounds
    - handling mostly same as Forza3 (might be good actually)
    - no more Porsche
    - hardly any new tracks
    - kinect not allowed in MP races
    - kinect forces you to play with all driving aids


    Reviews say its just an update for Forza3, should be named Forza3.5

    I only played the demo for a bit. I thought the sound effects when you collide with another car were horrible. More excited to see what kind of design/decal options we'll get.

    It is available for everyone now, the Gold Membership is no longer required to play the demo.

    Best Buy has regular and Collector's Editon versions of the game but Micosoft's website doesn't have Collector's Editon version.

    Nice demo. I said the same when i tried the FM3 demo though, so go figure.

    Only thing i really miss in FM3 is the voice of that TopGear guy. :)
