When it comes to racing games I sit firmly in the Mario Kart camp - give me fun and gimmicks over realism please! However there is no denying the quality of Microsoft's Forza Motorsport series and this instalment is no exception, getting scores of 9+ out of 10 all over the shop.
As part of their Mega Monday promotion, Zavvi are offering Forza 3 for only £17.95. This undercuts Shop To's already bargainous price of £19.95 by £2 and so is definitely worth grabbing.
I'd suggest getting your skates on for this one though, the Mega Monday deals only last until Tuesday and usually sell out well in advance of that deadline.
There's an incredible amount to do here. The game offers over 400 different cars from a range of 50 manufacturers for you to tinker with before you take them for a spin on your choice of over 100 track variations (which can accomodate up to eight cars at a time). Once you've exhausted your alone time with your beloved motors, there are some great online multiplayer options for you to get stuck into. If you're a fan of driving games then Forza will keep you entertained for long into the foreseeable future.
Thankfully for a game that has the potential to steal so much of your time, Forza 3 is a real treat for the eyes, with every car looking picture perfect and the tracks holding your attention throughout. The gameplay is also perfectly pitched, making this a game that is truly sorted to all ages and abilities.
The best racing game of all time? Perhaps. If it wasn't for the huge pile of games waiting for me to play them then I might even be tempted myself.
