    Well...what a screenshot! pC and AC don't get near as realistic...but of course who takes screenshots? :p
  6. Let us also keep in mind the 20+ hours of PhotoShop work that went into processing that shot. :)

    Tried the demo. Looks absolutely amazing and runs very smoothly.

    FFB is way too strong. The puddles are ridiculous. They are way too powerful and will pull our car completely off the road. Unrealistic, IMHO, but I will admit that all settings were at default when I drove in their version of rain. Looking forward to trying yet another racing game.

    Still wish they'd just release Forza for PC.

  11. Played the demo with the gamepad. For a 12GB download, there's not much to race, but what is there is fun. Turning off all assists made the game fairly difficult, although "simulation'" steering was waaaay too sensitive for a thumbstick.

    Th standing water is definitely deep on the rain race, hydroplaning happens once you put a tire through it at 80mph. I actually found the hydroplaning physics to be very realistic, and with the rain drifting across the track in sheets to disrupt line of sight, dodging the big puddles was a hellova experience while trading paint with the AI. I'm curious to see how much depth there is to the weather system (do dry lines develop? do puddles grow as it rains more?)

    Your assessment is a fair one. The rain looks nice and is challenging but I believe those conditions (including the puddles) are static. I'm still looking forward to racing with some friends.
  13. Didn't really enjoy this much. Being forced to watch the intro every time I started it and no way to skip the intro to section was annoying to say the least. I just get no sense of speed with Forza which takess away from the feeling of racing a great deal. I'll probably give it another go (maybe i'll make a cuppa or two while waiting for the intro to finish!!) but my first and second impressions are not favourable.
