    i know, girl, i know :D so i hope you won't shoot me for what i said above. tho a real gamer can say that none of those games are "the best" both have cons and props. i don't say that Forza 4 is better! i like them both the same :p

    Overall you found the game ok but there were a few things that annoyed you.

    Of course, you haven't properly played either game until you try them with a modern steering wheel instead of a gamepad ;)


    Since I have played both with the CSR-Elite + CS Pedals, I can finally offer my direct comparisons.
    Both have good physics but the main difference comes from the fact that FM4 only works properly with 270 degrees rotation for some reason, whereas GT5 prefers you to use 900 (emulating a G25). GT5 feels smoother/slightly more refined because of this.
    FM4 has way better engine sounds compared to GT5.
    FM4 tracks get boring fast, prefer the GT5 selection, although it doesn't take long for me to jump back on the PC.
    FM4 track visuals are generally nicer, cars are also very good, but there's a couple of occasions where GT5 is nicer as well.
    FM4 is awful online (for me at least). GT5 is much more stable.

    While I'm playing FM4 more often now because I've barely touched it before, I can say I was more hooked on GT5 when I first started playing that. However, I skipped GT3 and GT4 so numerous complaints from others don't necessary apply to me. (I also barely played the previous FM games as well, just a couple of split screen races mostly).

    I think you liked the sounds/car models, but, disliked the handling/tuning options?

    I'll guess you liked the graphics, sounds, etc. but didn't like the physics, online, and tuning.

    Winnar! :lol:

    I mean, believe me guys, i did not played it trying to dislike already... i really wanted to like it. I played it with the xbox joypad, and without assists, just abs.

    So, my thoughts:
    Sound is indeed better.
    3D model cars are indeed better
    Customization is also better, you have more options of rims and such.

    Cons:
    I didn't feel connected with the car
    The way the car reacts is not logic, and to control a possible control losing is also not logic
    Clutch is hopeless in the controller
    Lighting maybe is nicer, but it feels more artificial, the weather, track and car... i am sorry, but a black Corvette looked sooooo toy-ish!
    You can brake on grass like it was tarmac (which is not true, i have done that in real life, and the reaction was nothing like in Forza)
    Feels that the car is hovering over the track.
    and biggest fail, a stock Corvette almost flipped on Nurburgring by attacking a simple corner... if it was tuned, ok, but it was bone stock! I mean... wtf.
    And nurburgring is weird looking there... less bumpy, more wider... it is just wrong.

    Play the game just made me hate it even more. It still can be more fun, and harder, because it is harder to play, since you get no feeling and the game is not logic. But no thanks, i prefer a bit more of reality.

    No, seriously... i really tried to like Forza, even because my cousin has it, and i didn't want to hate his game. But i am sorry...

    milli, get a proper wheel, like one of the fanatec line. playing forza with game pad is like playing LFS with keyboard.

    That is ridiculous to say... really. You guys always told me to play the game, and then when i do, i still being a fan girl, i played it wrong i did this, i did that!?

    I played Forza the same way i played GT5. I play both with controller... and the wheel will not change the physics, not in GT5 and not in Forza! So, please...

    So you play with a pad and you want realism? :hmmm: Sorry, but I can't imagine GT5 feeling very realistic either when played with the toy some would call a PS3-controller

    Whoops. din't know that you play them both with a controller. but forza 4 have some bugs with game pad.


    i showed this to a guy who owns Forza 4, owns fanatec wheel, and he confirmed that this never ever happen with a wheel.

    anyway, i have a feeling that WW3 will start in here quite soon :D

    Look Santeri, i am sorry, but i played both games, and if you read my post above, in GT5 you can feel the car on ground, you can feel the difference between driving a heavy and a light car, it is logic, feels natural, YES, EVEN IN A CONTROLLER! That doesn't happen in Forza! I played both, i KNOW what i am talking about!

    Look, i don't need a video, i don't care about bugs, i played them both.
