Like driving games? Forza Motorsport is for you!

Racing game fans are a zealous bunch! Of all the genres in video games, racers are reviewed the most stringently, considering the quality of the current market leader Gran Turismo.

Unfortunately for Xbox 360 owners, Gran Turismo is a Playstation 3 exclusive. It's not all bad news though, as Xbox 360's Forza Motorsport is a quality alternative, and it's an Xbox 360 exclusive to boot!

Just like its Playstation rival, Forza Motorsport pitches itself squarely to the hardcore fans. It's a simulation game, rather than a more arcadey one. Drivers who race sensibly, holding a good line and avoiding contact, will be the ones who prosper.

The career system is beautifully implemented in Forza Motorsport 3, with players slowly drip-fed a series of upgrades and bigger events as they grind RPG style through a lengthy and engaging career mode that will see them racing an unbelievable array of games.

Even if you aren't a hardcore racer, you're well catered for. Developers Turn 10 have implemented a number of features that will help any novice enjoy the game, including generous racing lines, and the ability to rewind the action if you crash or spin out, with no penalty!

If you enjoy a racer, then Forza Motorsport 3 will be a hugely enjoyable and rewarding experience. Pick it up today! It still may be at full-price in most stores, but you can pick up the predecessor - Forza Motorsport 2 for a bargain price in any game store, with cost dropping even further if you're prepared to go pre-owned.
