Is it me, or does GT4 look better than Forza?

I was comparing screenshots and GT4 looks better...

GT4 has some nice looking replays, but in game graphics are pretty much identical to GT3.

After playing Forza, I think I agree.

The car models in the Gran Turismo games seem to look more realistic.

Keep in mind that Polyphony have had 3 previous "attempts" so they're bound to be ahead in the stakes. Just because the Xbox is "more powerful" that doesn't mean the team behind Forza know how to utilise that power.

Cheers,

So what?

And I agree GT4 looks more realistic than Forza. And Forza doesn't look great in motion, (at least the demo I saw), while GT4 looks absolutely stunning in motion.

Polyphonic knows how to push hardware to its limits. GT1 on the PSX was a miracle.

Maybe I should rephrase that.

I believe from what I saw Forza should flop. But after the demo it was pushed back (again), so I have hope they'll fix it up (a lot) before release.

But even if they don't, it probably won't flop because it's going to the same customer base that picked Rally Sport Challenge 2 over Colin McRae Rally after all.

No, but his condition is showing signs of improvement. He doesn't slam the PS2 nerely as much anymore. He pretty much sticks to his he can't afford another console defense rather than 2001-2004's "teh PS2 sux!1!!" shtick.

GT4 does look a bit better, but those screenshots for GT4 are touched-up high res, while the Forza ones appear to be more "what you see is what you get." But I still think GT4 looks better, and will probably play better. But we'll see.

Forza has always looked kinda plasticky to me. I don't know that it's Renderware, but it looks Renderwarey.

I may not care for GT gameplay, but there's no denying that Polyphony are masters of their particular niche.

Now I think I'll go play some Burnout 4 and have some fun...
