@kalmis: The career, now called "world tour", has been completely overhauled, so you're in luck.

Aw yeah, sittin' in the backseat, punchin' my sister, bro.

I agree with Jeff. BMW were cool until 1998.

Posted by Sprucegrove

I'm not sure why, but Dave has an amazing voice. Audi and Citroën make pretty good cars, but I guess Jeff wants to drive something from the US. Can't say I'm a fan of the way the Challenger looks, though.

Posted by Kaungo

The challenger is the one of the last true 'merican muscle car that one can buy from the dealer today. Which mean it handle like shit through corners. Makes lots of smoke and 11s tho.

I stopped watching at "I don't think BMWs are cool anymore."

Just kidding.

Too bad about Porsche exclusion though.

No matter when or what car Jeff decides to splurge on, the vanity license plate with his name imprinted on it will instantly transform his ride.

well that was 42min crap excuse for a QL , i'm sorry guys but that QL was boring as hell, didnt give me any kind of insight if i wanted to buy this game or not .

i have been noticing the lack of interest in the QL lately esp in the BF3 one , it kinda feels like its a chore for them to do and get it out of the way.

i was interested in this game coz i hav never played a forza game but that QL really made me change my mind. just coz they made it seem like its boring as hell and its something that they had to do.

@Buckfitches: The game is aimed at a wider audience than just people who are very seriously into cars and motorsport and want to play very realistic video games about them, though, since that's a fairly small market which is catered for by things like rFactor. That's why the assists are there. You don't have to be seriously into the minutiae of WWII weaponry and tactics to enjoy Red Orchestra 2, for example.

I don't own a car (I live in a city where it is pointless), don't like motorsport, but do LOVE racing games of all kinds. The problem for me is that this series has always felt extremely dry and lifeless in single player, and I'm not capable of playing online at a level which is enjoyable. Perhaps the newly revamped career mode will be a big improvement for this one.

Also, adding Jeremy Clarkson is very offputting. Americans probably don't realise what an absolute arse that man is. It is the equivalent of putting Bill O'Reilly in the next Call of Duty.

Thats what I thought too. But I guess if you have an Xbox and you are into sims enough to notice, you will be getting this game either way.

Also, hearing about american car prices makes me sad. 43k for an SRT8? You wouldnt even get a 1.5l Honda CR-Z for that price over here.

Why not show the Top Gear stuff?

Edit: Oops, spoke too soon.

Whoa, I can get Jeremy Clarkson to talk about the cars? Preordered!

Yeah, I don't understand why Jeff is even leading this quicklook, he's clearly not interested in cars or motorsport in general, drives with 100% of the assists on, and complains he's getting burned out quick. That's completely missing the point of the game, you might as well be playing GRID or Need For Speed, not a racing simulator.

I don't really think there's anyone in the WM offices who's actually really into cars, but comparing the Forza series to yearly Madden games? Disappointed.

I think it's a pretty important perspective. shows how accessible the racing sim is today. He's a big fan of Forza -- it's natural he'd be the one to review it.

I think that just means "open all the doors and stuff".

Holy Cow... a video with Dave that's available for everyone. Quick, add a prefix.

Posted by Bakumatsu

Cultural differences sure are something. Here in Portugal, a Honda Civic is normally associated to street racers. Or it was at some point.

it still find it weird they kept the forza 3 logo

It's not a 3, it's an "m"

God I love you Jeffery Gerstmann.

Jeff - "I'm a Nissan guy, I'm a Ferarri guy, I'm a Honda guy. I've reached level 4 of... Ummm, I think that certain Honda's... Basically, I want a car that I can slam real low, and put subwoffers in, and I think Honda's fit that".

Dave - "And what does that car say about you"?

I just love your fascination with random things.

The tales of Jeff's bizarre spending habits are definitely one of my favorite parts of the GB experience.

Thanks for this quick look guys, it made my day!

these games make me feel lonely

Edited by handlas

F ya.... i always wanted a charger or challenger. Yes, I drive a Honda Civic....cries

Posted by cclemon36

This game looks great, and if I had a 360, I'd definitely pick it up. Also, thanks for this QL, I can now put off writing an essay for another 40min.

Car Talk with Jeff and Dave

I'd listen to it.

Posted by Metal_Mills

Damn, Jeff must be pretty well off if he's talking about buying $60,000 cars!

You guys need a Whiskey Media crest for a gentleman's blazer. That would go really nice with a Lexus.

Tuesday cannot come soon enough...

Posted by MildMolasses

This looks really, really good. I just have a feeling that I burnt myself out on F3, and the same thing will happen with this as happened with Dirt 3. Too much racing excellence, but the next installment is just too much the same.

@CptBedlam: i always thought it was a 3 :(

I own a Challenger. Buy a Challenger.

Christ man I've bought two cars in my life and they have both been like $6,000, new not used.

How dare you slight us Civic drivers who are guys. I love my 36 miles per gallon tank.

Lexus IS-F, eh?

Now we'll all know what we're paying for when the subscription fees go up by 20 bucks! :p

If I saw Jeff get out of a bumping white challenger decked out in a tracksuit I would lose my shit

Why does FM4 and the Spec 2.0 update for GT5 (that apparently adds cockpit to all cars) have to come at the same time?

Posted by mrcraggle

As much a I like the Forza series, this looks pretty incremental. I want to see how realistic some of the photos can be made to look because some I've seen in GT5 on forums look crazy realistic.
