Any Forza 2 Players in here?

Hello,

My name is Landin Williams and I am currently working with Turn 10 Studios, the folks behind the Forza Motorsport franchise on the Xbox 360.

I am hoping to get some feedback from those of you on this forum that play Forza 2, regarding how we can make our games more appealing to automotive enthusiasts. So if you have played Forza 2 (or 1) and have some feedback that would be great!

Also if you post your Xbox LIVE gamertag I will make sure to send you a few exclusive cars (Saleen S281E for example!)

Thanks,
Landin

I love the game. Cannot get enough of it. Some of the design aspects such as color and painting of parts etc would definately be things that should be added to gameplay. For the most part its customizable. However, you can only paint the car, brakes, and mirrors. I also think there should be more upgrades availble. Also I know it has a dyno type mode however its very lacking, you only get the numbers, you should develop more detail for that part. The last thing that I would definately love to see would be a drag racing track with an option to drag race. It would be fun to build your car and than race it in the 1/4 mile against the comp, and online players as well.

No live tag

Love the game, however i do notice alot more variety of the same car on imports, I would love to see more varieties of Mustangs and domestic cars in general. Definately a drag race option would add some variety. More tuning capabilities.

I love the game. Its one of the best racing games i've ever played. One thing I would love to see them add is free roaming like the way they did in test drive unlimited. I think a drag racing and drifting mode would be pretty cool too.

i dont think a free roam mode would really fit into the Forza game play since all they have are tracks and not citys and what not. I like the game, there isnt much I would change except the selction of cars could be a bit broader, but not much. coming from a GT2, GT3, AND GT4 background, i really enjoyed forza 2

I apologize, I had added a few comments but forgot to save them last night --

The ONE THING I don't like about forza 2, is that a guest on the xbox/split screen cannot use the main players' career garage, it would make for a lot more fun races if personal cars could be chosen over the default list.

This one doesn't bug me as much, and this was done in (cough... sony's GT 2..) and I don't know if it went over so well, but I know several people who bought that game solely because it had THEIR car in it (I'm not asking for the slowest of the slow cars, but cars that had enthusiast followings.. IE passats/regals/tauri SHO/etc)

Just a few thoughts!

thanks

I think a real drag racing track and race system is in line. People have been begging for it for ages on forzamotorsport.net. Maybe look at live for speed, they have a 8 lane dragstrip that people love to use online. Let people get drag oriented tires and setups as well as a proper tree to launch with, not the "hold the gas and let it go green"

I'd also like to be able to pick opponents to race when I'm in single player. For example I'd like to run a 2008 ALMS type race but it's impossible to have the computer guess right and give the right cars.

Oh, and throw some 442's in the game too

Re: Any Forza 2 Players in here?

yes a 1/4 Mile DRAG RACE STRIP is what is need for the FORZA franchise (why was it eliminated in Forza 2 ???), more realistic damage models like roll overs would be cool too other than that it is a GREAT GAME and has a loyal fan base like me lol....

I really think that nothing needs to be changed at all. The amount of tweaking that you can do to EVERY aspect of your car is money! A few things that could be added could be, like Rocket said, a 1/4 mile mode. And maybe a mode where you can start as a amateur driver doing small races and work your way up to for example the Petit Le Mans.

I love the game though, I have a paper to write, but I think I'm going to play now!

They do have a mode where you have to start as amateur drivers. It just doesnt have your "petit le mans".

Re: Any Forza 2 Players in here?

Well what I'm saying is start like a franchise mode, if you've played Grid you would know what I'm talking about. Start your own racing team and work your way to the best race team in the world. Oh yeah and include the Petit Le Mans.

Re: Any Forza 2 Players in here?

Wow good to see lots of Forza 2 players on this board! Thanks so much for the feedback. Really appreciate it!

So who would be interested in forming a Mustang Evolution race team? Basically you would face off against teams from other automotive communities in an organized race. We have a few teams forming a various different websites.

Who's in?

i am going to agree with MonteCitan. for split screen games you need to include the ability to use the cars in the current garage. i dont know how many times Monte or myself have said that while we are finding cars to race against each other that can be comparable to whats modded.

I am all for a drag racing system in Forza 3. something like bracket racing against other players over live. Make tournaments for it. Make it so that we actually have to stage our car and sit there on the brake so that we dont roll off the line.

Re: Any Forza 2 Players in here?

You guys all got a Saleen S281E right? Enjoy!

Ok glad to see some of you are interested in a racing team. Basically you will need a team of 3. All the scheduling and race hosting will be done by myself, so all you need to do is gather a team and let me know when you're available to race.

The official rules will be posted in the near future, so I will make sure to keep you guys in the loop

Re: Any Forza 2 Players in here?

Damn Im missing my 360 right about now.....

Well my gamertag is Goozenfize.

I have been an avid fan of Forza and was one of the first people I know to get the original for the xbox. Seriously I logged well over 200 hours in just test and tuning on Nurburgring. I have the garage and tune library to show for it!!

Don't lose the real feel of the cars. And definitley don't lose Nurburg. The fact that you guys have the full ring instead of just the f1 circuit is a major plus.

You could incorporate official race leagues that race once a week on a track. Limit the amount of players in one league, keep track of points, and at the end of the season award the winners with a special car or something.

The only beef I had with either of the two games was like Monte said, 2 player racing sucked. Also, A D1 style league would be cool. So not only do you get the classic road racing Forza is famous for, but incorporate the drag strip as mentioned earlier and a D1 style traveling tourney. One track, do qualifying drifts, seed respectively, race maybe 4 rounds or so to get winner and move on to the next track.

Another cool idea that the game Race 07 used was handicap weights. If you are trouncing the competition adding weight to the winner's cars will even the field and make the racing more intense. For example, if you are in 1st place after a race the game will add I don't know, +10 lbs for every win you get while in first.

I'd also like to see more domestics, rare cars, kit cars. Maybe a more indepth customization feature like Underground 2 used where you can mess around with the bumpers and rims. More rims is a plus.

Look into doing a full Manual transmission option with a clutch that works off the triggers. Have different stage clutches engage differently, could be fun for drag.

Ahhh what else, O yea, more downhill courses like the Japan course(the name escapes me).

Bikes would be cool to add but space Im sure is a major factor, as that would be an entirely new aspect of the game.

I could sit here all day and rack my brain for ideas but these are just off the top of my head. Keep up the good work, it's good to see the developers caring about what the community thinks.

Re: Any Forza 2 Players in here?

Thanks again for the feedback! For those of you who just recently posted your gamertags I should have some cars out to yo by the end of the week.

Also the official rules have been posted. You can check them out here!

I will connect with you all through this thread, so no need to worry about posting a response to the blog.

So all I need now is someone to coordinate with the others to form a team. Once you all know who will be racing then we can pick a time and place and let the games begin!

Let me know when you're ready!
