I immediately regret booting this game up and hopping straight into the 2000hp fast and furious plymouth gtx for a quick lap around the ring I was genuinely terrified to go full throttle in this thing. I probably only did 3 or 4 times on the track, and always paid for it by the time i hit the next turn. Got it up to 250mph in FOURTH gear on the straight before i had to let off cuz it was right on the razors edge of going out of control.

Well that was a nice warmup. Now to actually play the game.

The damn SxS races are impossible lol
I just got to the second series of races. Progression def starts out slow. Going to have to try and grind through the campaign mode before doing a ton of multiplayer though.
I think the actual driving experience is the best yet though. I can finally enjoy the in car view.

Im bumper cam for life when it comes to actually putting down times that count, but it is nice that they put a 2nd cockpit view in without the wheel. Tho it does completely destroy your view of the mirrors.

And as far as the driving, even tho this car is batshit insane, i did feel like i could control it if i was smart about it. It gives you JUST enough warning before it goes that you correct it if youre quick enough.

Man there are not a lot of people playing this game yet. I test all my cars at catalunya national, and just took a maxed out C class Integra type r there and ran maybe 5 quick laps, and placed #2 in the americas. Only 3 tenths behind first place. And theres only 10 people on the leaderboard for this class so far. Man this takes me back to my project gotham days on the OG xbox when i was like the leader of 12 different leaderboards. Id come home from work at night and that would be my only goal. I need to take advantage of these slim pickins while i still can.

God, that takes me back to our Gotham 2 days. We WERE the elite. We topped all the boards and we pioneered cat and mouse. What a time to be alive that was.

The Cobra R and GT350R should be in the game. Not all cars are purchasable at the start, some of them even need to be won by completing certain events. If you go to free play all the cars should be available there

Seems like some cars are hidden as well. Like the Mazda Miata Super 20 that I picked up in the special set of 3 cars they have for sale that looks to rotate every week. It’s not in the list of Mazda’s for sale.

Rain is wayyyy better in this game. I had to turn off this new shaking camera shit from the rear view. That made me nauseous after half a lap.

You know, they can animate dozens of people around the track waving all sorts of flags, but they cant put ONE person at the start/finish line to wave a checkered flag when your race is done. This has bothered me for a long time. Seeing that checkered flag waving as you cross the line after battling it out from the back of the pack to fight your way to the front is one of the greatest feelings ever. But nope. Not for turn 10 i guess.

Made my first million tonight. Then promptly spent almost half of it on the GTR-LM in the specialty dealer. I had to have it.

Now that Ive spent a little more time w/ the game I can talk about something many people are already expressing a strong dislike for. Homologation. Anyone whos ever played the forza games know all the classes, E, D, C, B, A, S, etc. Those classes still exist, but most of the cars of the game have now been re-evaluated and assigned class restrictions. It's an attempt to even the playing field and curb the leaderboard spamming from previous titles.

So basically, if you buy any car, it will tell you what the limits are, and along w/ the PI restrictions you have to remain within, there are other restrictions as well, like tire type and width, and HP levels. Now this only applies to career races and other turn 10 events. You're still free to mod any car to whatever level you want and race it in free race mode or online. Its different. But i feel like its an adaptable change. Just takes a little getting used to.

I do like how you can tailor the length of every race now, tho I wish there was a finer level of adjustment possible. I've been racing races on long, cuz normal is just too short. with 2-4 lap races all youre doing is bowling thru cars trying to get to the front as quickly as possible before the race is over. But with longer races you can take your time, pick your spots to overtake, actually have a race. And I like having the extra laps to try and put in that one good lap for the leaderboards.

I'll also just say the track day rival races are the most infuriating things I have ever participated in. They put you in a super fast car, and then populate the entire track with like 40 slow ass scrubs to get in your way at EVERY turn in EVERY corner on EVERY lap. And they expect you get a fast clean lap. Just try it. But make sure there arent any blunt objects within arms reach because they will end up being thrown at your tv.

Oh didn’t know you could add more laps to the career races. Like you said I’ve just been plowing through cars in the first couple turns to get to the front which isn’t any fun.

Yeah I cant remember what settings menu its in but its there. Long races still can kinda drag on a bit but i'll take that over the 3 lap scramble. So far I think each race is taking no more than 10-15 minutes. I may need to up the AI a little as well, cuz once I finally get ahead I can usually pull a pretty good lead by the end if I know the track pretty well. Right now I've got them one notch below expert. But at the same time I kinda like the open space too cuz like I said I use that time to try and get a good lap for the leaderboards.

Oh god. All the “Forza Edition” cars get the super fucking gay tire stickers. At least in Horizon 3 you could change them back to regular. So much fail.

Managed to sit through and finish the 47 lap endurance race with the C7R. That was rough but boosted me about 10 driver levels and gave me a ton of money.

#8 at Laguna Seca out of 374 other Americans

I'll likely drop several thousand places when this game actually releases on tuesday, so I'm just enjoying this while I can

I placed 2nd in America with the GTR LM on Road America in just a quick 3 lap race to check out the car.

I turned the ai up to expert as well. The results are pretty much the same. can usually take first by the 3rd or 4th lap, then i start putting miles on them for the rest of the race. Its still some good racing for those 3 or 4 laps tho. I even have the aggression limit turned off but ive been quite surprised with the results so far. Ive been having some good wheel to wheel racing with them and as long as i give them space they generally give me space. Tho im sure when the main release happens and the world starts getting populated with everyone elses douchey drivatars this will most certainly change
