Forza Motorsport 3 (2009) Review

Review #14

3y ago

Forza Motorsport 3 is a circuit based racing game. It was developed by Turn 10 studios and published by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox 360 and came out in 2009.

When you start your racing career in Forza Motorsport 3, you are given a choice of city cars, so you can start racing. The only bad thing about this is that you have no money for upgrades like you had in Forza motorsport 1 and 2. All of that is alright, because your opponents seem to be absolute morons at the start of the game, so it’s easy to win races with a stock car in the beginning.

Forza Motorsport 3 has 500 cars (ultimate edition) from 50 manufactures such as the Ford, Vauxhall and Land Rover. There a bigger range of cars than there were in the first two games from small hatchbacks like the Ford Fiesta and Abarth 500 thing to SUVs such as the Range Rover and BMW X5. This is one of the things that I had a problem with in Forza Motorsport 2.

Instead of getting more cars available in the dealers, you win a car when you level up. Forza Motorsport should have been like this from the first game, because every car should be unlocked from the beginning.

Tuning and upgrading in Forza Motorsport 3 is just like the other games, except instead of swapping the engine with the drivetrain, you can choose what wheels you want to have power. Although some cars are limited to this option, there are still a lot of possibilities that you can have.

Racing in Forza Motorsport 3 sometimes feels repetitive, because in some race series, all the tracks are the same but in different configurations. Sometimes is okay in the early races, because there are not that many laps in a race.

Overall, the car and track list are quite good, the physics as usual is brilliant, upgrading is better than the previous games. There are few things wrong with Forza Motorsport 3, such as the repetitive racing. Overall I would give Forza Motorsport 3 an 8 out of 10.
