Anyone know where the cheapest place to get this is? I'm really annoyed I had to cancel my Amazon order because of my stupid car repeirs, now I'm thinking I may just chuck it on the Credit Card and to hell with it!!!

I quite like the look of it, i might play some more of Forza 2 though, that'll curb my enthusiasm for boring racing.

So in three days of playing Forza 3 I've got more achievement points already than in nearly two years of playing Forza 2! Guess the achievements are a lot easier!!!  :D

It actually looks like a do'able 1000G, but I'm sure it's going to take a while to get up to level 50. I'm on level 16 already and that hasn't really taken that long but obviously the level ups increase as you go along, the one thing I can't figure out is there are two achievements for Drift races and I haven't come across any drift races so far, maybe they only unlock after a certain level but it's a bit odd.

There are no Drift races, you have to handbrake around a corner to get a drift.

But one of the achievements says something about getting 10,000 drift points (or 100,000) within one race. How are you going to know how many you've got if there's no specific race counting the points up?  ???

Yeh, supposedly, it says something about rewinds too ... maybe it's Arcade mode.

I figured it out. If you click the left button on the D-Pad it brings up the Drift scoring, and then using the handbrake to brake around corners puts the car in to a drift and the scoring starts.

Wow, just looked on Metacritic and some of the reviews for Forza 3 are amazing, out of the top ten blurbs i must have read 'the greatest racing game ever' about 5 times.

Might have to swap SHIFT for this.

Haven't tried Forza 3 yet. Owned the first one on the original XBox and found it a bit boring. Borrowed Forza 2 last year and after 1 hour of playing I was almost asleep at the wheel. Let's hope Forza 3 is an improvement, I'll definitely try before I buy though. Give PGR any day.
