E3 09: Forza Motorsport 3 looks good … too good

It’s 2:00 A.M. and we’re still talking about gaming news from the Microsoft E3 press conference. The coverage is finally beginning to wind down, thankfully, but we are only now getting to showing off the new Forza 3 trailer. What gives?

The Forza guy is gone, presumably partying late into the night, and I am not him; that’s what gives! Turn 10, alongside every other videogame company bringing out sequels this year, is going for bigger, badder, and even sexier. Like prior Forza titles, user-generated content will be a focal point, but you have got to have a place to drive your slick new cars, right?

Forza 3 brings 100+ tracks to the table, has a ridiculous 400 cars from 50 different manufacturers, includes more than 200 events for single-player, and allows for customizable multiplayer game rules with an all-new editor.

Also, it’s goddamn gorgeous. To rephrase that in a more eloquent and nerdy way, the game has 10 times the amount of polygons as its predecessor. If my eyes could talk, they would probably say “wow.”
