Microsoft's answer to Gran Turismo switches gears from Xbox to Xbox 360 with the release Forza Motorsport 2. The added horsepower of the Xbox 360 allows for high-definition visuals, advanced special effects, and a frame rate that clocks in at 60 frames per second. More than 60 tracks are available to race on, including such authentic venues as Silverstone Circuit, Mazda Raceway Laguna, and Sebring International Raceway. Gearheads can acquire more than 300 licensed vehicles from 50 top manufacturers, with each car's performance influenced by damage or wear, weather, and road conditions.
An assortment of tuning parts and customization options exist, as players decide on suspension kits, engines, body kits, brakes, paint schemes, and more before adjusting their vehicle's tire pressure, gear ratios, and various other settings from within a garage. Prized wheels can be snapped for fun or posterity in the "Forza Photo Mode," and Xbox Live support is once again included for players to test drive their custom cars while earning special credits to unlock bonus features. Races between rival cars can also be viewed on "Forza Motorsport TV," which lets players learn driving strategies and techniques from the top racers on Xbox Live. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
