Default Forza Motorsport For Honing Your Driving Skills

If this isn't the appropriate forum for this, I apologize in advance. I've seen VRC posts in here, so I hope this is okay.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here is a Forza Motorsport addict. I recently bought it and have been playing it non-stop. I could see how it could really help hone your driving skills and even your setup skills.

Thoughts?

I play it. I think that the computer simulaters work best though.

Forza is a simulator, and a decent one at that, best console racer to date.

with a wheel such as the speedster 3 forceshock, this game is mega.

I just want to work out how to connect my wheel to teh xbox 360 (different plug)..as the game is playable on the new console, so If I can get the wheel hooked up im set.

King-G, have you tried playing Forza on the 360 yet?


The emulator is terrible at best with horrible slowdown once the car hits over 150km/h. I tried it on the 360 because I lent my xbox to a friend and I was so disappointed. Actually every regular xbox game I've played on the 360 has slowdown or crashes at important stages.

thankyou for the link, I will check it out..

I was hoping there would be a third party plug adaptor thingy available, as I had just shelled out $230 6 months ago for the wheel / pedals.

I havent played forza on the 360, nor any xbox game. Its a shame to hear the emulator is buggy, as i have a decent collection of xbox games I was hoping would be playable. It seems Microsoft has just added the functionality in there for Backward compatability as a sales point, without much development.
