Yeah it was bundled for the longest time in Europe and for quite some time bundled with the Falcon Elites in the US. It's also $5 or less at many locations used and pretty cheap ($20) new for the platinum hits edition would comes bundled with extra content. I'd highly recommend playing this before Forza 3 just to get a taste of what your getting into, atleast for the price point.

My 360 elite hdmi console came with Forza 2 + Marvel Ultimate Alliance bundled.

Well it's certainly set better user-base now, gearbox. It would probably be the same with PS3 bundling K2 around the time the sales stayed standard at around 1.75-2mil and it gets jumped up to 5 mil ltd.

VGC is undertracking in Japan, Famitsu said this sold around 100k. Still 40k in Japan is pretty good for a 360 game, especially at that time

1 million couldnt come sooner, imagine 360 software sales at 1.5 million? Famitsu also showed their top 30 selling games on the 360, and half of them were from 08, so clearly their business is growing well there

Unfortunately it also showed the VGC way overtracks on many games = (

i am very disapointed with Japan........this game stands toe to toe with any gran turismo (yes Sony fanboys, its up there too), yet they completely ignore it cause the title doesnt say "Gran turismo".........

As far as the most REALISTIC racing sims I've played go, I'd rate the Indycar Series games from 04 and 05 as more realistic than forza or gt. No you cant add bumpers or any of that crap, but as far as pure setups go, I'm still searching for another game that lets me adjust all 4 corners, not just the front and back.

however that game was for one single type of car only. Both forza and gt do a great job with many different types of cars from street to exotic to straight up race cars.

The great thing is that it sold well on its own, but now due to heavy bundling, it may just be capable of GT success.

The game truly deserves attention but because its so hardcore for the console crowd it doesnt. If MS heavily market the next game, they might just do it. Also they should bundle it from launch, as Sony did with GT3, it could mean the franchise solidifies its multi million selling status

@ Rocksmith
I like my 360 as much as I like my ps3. This game just flat out sucked.


The Customization of cars ins't new they just took the feature from previous racing games. This is a very basic sim. Gran Turismo is the most realistic car sim.

Sabre979 posted 26/07/2008, 07:58
Forza 2 ruled over any Gran Turismo game for several reasons. The biggest reason was giving the player the ability to PAINT their car ANYWAY they wanted. All racing sims in the future should allow this. I also liked the variety of cars, from classic muscle to import tuners.

As for the full GT5...well just look at past sales.

"wow, nearly 4 million? well that should show whats the leading driving game"

Rofl, Gran Turismo pwns Forza.

Just one of the full Gran Turismo games have outsold the entire Forza franchise.

Even a demo of GT5 is poised to outsell Forza 2.

Sure it's an awesome game in it's own right(otherwise they wouldn't have bundled it), but that bundle did increase sales a heck of a lot.

@ RICKYTAN - And your point is what ?, all 3 systems have a bundle game in the top 15, the 360 is shifting huge amounts of consoles but it don't mean they are all the Forza2 version, with that amount of consoles it's obvious a lot of people are going to buy Forza2 for 2 reasons, 1. it's the best next gen driving game out there by far and 2 it's is also now being sold at a much lower than retail great price....

This game rocks. Only idiot sony fanboys who haven't played it would rate it at less than 8 or 9.

I played every Gran Turismo and Forza 2 is superior in every way to all of them, by a considerable margin.
