Forza Motorsport 2 Review (xbox 360)


Video: Forza 2 Japanese paint jobs

Collect, race and customise more than 300 cars from over 50 of the world’s leading manufacturers, tear up 60 tracks carved out of 18 environments, including 13 real-world licensed circuits. Too good to be true? not according to a score of 90% from 6 reviews on Metacritic.com. Out in Us, releases Europe June 8th.

Reviews Summary
Dangerously addictive and loads of fun
The best sim racer out there right now, no question,
Pretty much Forza 1 with updated graphics
Delivers on nearly every aspect you'd want in a Forza sequel
It drives incredibly, it's wonderfully presented, and it's rich with modes and features.
Functional-at-best visuals aside, Forza 2 excels in a way no other racing game has managed this generation
Brilliant physics, great customization options, and solid online play.
Much like its predecessor, Forza 2 lacks soul

I wanted this game, but I have not the time for it... :( I think I better hold out for DIRT..?

Plus I would like to get Tenchu Z on June 12th... Love the old Tenchu games!

DEITRIX said...

A person could do some advertising there I'm thinking..... hhhmmmm...

The Elderly said...

can't wait for Dirt... on the basis i could get killed by a falling meteor first..... I tried to love tenchu, I really did, but the demos bugged me.....

and advertising opportunity... where?

DEITRIX said...

Well I'm hoping the final version of Tenchu is improved... :/

Advertising on the cars...! Heck you could have The Elderly Gamer race car!

The Elderly said...

But it's no Sega Rally 1995 is it?

(FK slopes off into the past with a Saturn controller trailing lamely behind...)

The Elderly said...

wait FK, this only emulates the greatness that was... IS Sega Rally 1995.... purely an emulation... in no way could it ever... ever replace...

... FK the door... the controller.... (closes his eyes.....)

fatherkrishna said...

OUCH! :(

Timerunner runs in and faints...

Oh sorry, that's not me is it...

The Elderly said...
