Overall: Turn 10 has introduced a visually stimulating Simulation racer in Forza 2 Motorsports. If you like fast and exotic cars that handle and react just like there real counterparts then you've come to the right place. Along with a line up of manufaturers from around the world to cover the gambit on the variety of cars. Take to the tracks like a professional racer w. stability & traction control or try your luck and turn it off to enjoy there full power and abilities, if you can handle them.

You'll find many of the popular racetracks from around the world letting you test your driving abilities against the AI or in online Multi-player. Online offers you Races w. people from all over but can get you into the Forza 2 Aution House to buy a new ride or sell one from your garage. For someone that wants a Simulation Racer and not a "Arcade Racer" then Forza 2 Motorsports will be the answer for you. Drivers Start your engines...
Gameplay: From the first time you sit down to play Forza 2 you'll get the real driving feel along w. being able to damage your ride to the point you can't continue a race or possibly not pit and run out of gas on the last lap of an Endurance Race. you get to start w. easier races w. some basic cars and as you will and earn money and Driver Level points you'll be able to purchase faster better cars and open up more advanced races.

There will be Manufactures Races just using stock cars w/ no modifications, Ford vs, Chevy, Professional Series w. R1/2/3 Race cars or the long Endurance Races. You'll find yourself racing on some of the world most famed raceways and they look just like the real tracks. As you progress through the game you will increase your Driver Level, max 50, unlocking different Events as you move up. this will also help in building relationships w. manufactures and get you discounts on cars and performance parts.

In the Career mode you can pause and take a picture in the middle of a race. On the other hand if you don't want to loose your concentration on the race just save the replay and when watching you could snap your action shot. Then if you choose to upload it to ForzaMotorsports Website to share w/ your friends and others. As I mentioend for any race you run you can also save a replay to share or watch later on.

Besides the Career mode you have your normal Time Trials that you have a car that's given and a set time to beat the track in. If successful in beating the times you'll receive unlock cars that you can use for online racing. Now if TT isn't your thing then hook up to Live and try your luck against racers all over the world. Races can be set up on anytrack from career mode and also what car cl@!%#*!es and any restrictions you may want enforce.

Another feature that can come in handy while on Live is the Forza 2 Auction House. Here you can sell cars you've customized or want to get rid or of maybe browse to find a ride that's got a graphic/theme you've been wanting. You've got to pay to play baby, and some want a pretty penny for there ride.
Graphics: the visuals in Forza 2 are good but there are certain things that could've been done a little better. some of the textures and detain on the gr@!%#*! areas looks a bit flat Not to mention in races where you have to pit your ride you hear machinery etc going on but that's it nothing to visually WOW you like guys at least runnign up to or around the car like they are performing repairs. you can though get some very nice pictures during any single player race and save videos of races to watch later on or share w. friends.

i know one of the major things people were using in the game is the paint/graphics tools as you could go in and with a little bit of time and creativity come up w/ some major works of rolling artwork. It's give you the ability to layer and combine shapes etc to create pretty much anything imaginable.
Sound: turn 10 captured all of the real sounds of the numerous cars in the game but it just seemed to be the only real thing besides tire screechs that stand out as you race your way to victories. The soundtrack that was selected and the various artists used were nice as well quite a few are catchy songs. You'll find on video playback and when you hire a driver to run as you watch the race you can hear things like birds chirping etc, but those are things that are evadent as you race around the track.

Overall: Ah, Forza Motorsport. The brilliant alternative to the likes of the Gran Turismo series. I'd say the enjoyment is much much higher than gran turismo. It's an incredibly likeable and realistic racing sim. The car list on the other hand was too simular to the original Forza Motorsport. The customization and personalization is amazing though. Simply put, it's an excellent sim and one the most complete racing games to date, on any system, not just the 360.
Gameplay: The gameplay was remarkable. The handling of the cars is perfect, and i mean that literally. They handle very realistically. Another positive was that the cars in Forza 2 actually show damage, unlike that tough-as-a-diamond cars that employ the Gran Turismo series. The auction house is addicting as gamerscore itself.
Graphics: Unfortunately the game's visuals weren't amazing. Not bad, but not amazing. The decal system however, blew my mind. There is no limit to how you could personalize your car. The game dominated the customization part of racing sims. It has the most immense car customization in any game, ever. Sorry need for speed pro street.
Sound: I was suprised that the soundtrack was unusually catchy and well selected. I have the whole thing on my Zune :) The cars also sounded good, but some engine sounds were repeated, just in different pitch. I was able to change that by buying a new muffler, though. I love the way the racing vehicles sounded, too.
Suggestions: A more varried carlist would help this game a bit. And perhaps circuit de la sarthe as DLC.
