Forza Motorsport 4 Demo Now Available on Xbox Live

Posted by on October 3, 2011 at 1:04 pm

Forza Motorsport – probably the biggest name in racing simulations.

The first Forza game was released on the original Xbox in May of 2005 to amazing reviews and critical acclaim.

Now, nearly 6 and a half years later, it’s time to play the latest installment in the Forza series.

The Forza Motorsport series has come a long way in the last 6 years. When it released it was raved over for its realistic physics, great graphics, damage modeling and overall driving experience. Since then, developer Turn 10 has worked endlessly to improve every facet of the game.

A screenshot from the first Forza release. Not too shabby.

As you can see, even the first Forza Motorsport looked good…damned good. That’s one of the big things this series is known for – smoking hot graphics. Well, they’ve gotten better and better. The title image is from the latest release of the game, as is the image below.

I know, you don’t have to tell me…You dribbled a little.

Another thing the Forza series is known for is it’s extensive list of cars and Turn 10 has outdone themselves with this release. Just in case you’ve been hiding under a rock, here’s the latest list of super-sexy vehicles which will be available in Forza 4. Get comfy, it may take a while to read through this list.

    This game is probably worth buying for the Top Gear test track alone.
