As a pad driver I prefer GT5's physics. The cars feel much more alive and responsive on that than they do in FM3, and I think the main reason for this is the proper modeling of the mass and weight transfer of the cars, which is something GT5 does very well and FM3 lacks.Compared to GT5? I guess it's a matter of personal preference. I find forza's physics just perfect esp when using the controller. I can run without any driver aids. While GT5 i find the physics much better suited for racing wheels. Although running without ABS off feels weird as sometimes the brakes aren't consistent. They sometimes don't even lock at full travel. (yes the wheel and pedals of the G25 are properly calibrated.)
You know what? I don't think I really care. While I know it's a "sim" and it will be compared to GT5, I'm not using it as a tool to improve my driving. It's about having fun. After buying GT5, and the development time it was given, it feels cold and restricted to me.The driving physics still don't look particularly good. The cars still don't seem to exhibit any weight transfer.
They were never going to keep it exclusive, anyone could have guessed that by how the industry treats DLC.Also, lets take advantage of a natural disaster to release the LCE content to everybody by saying we are donating all the profits to Haiti. Was very nice of them to do so but they had obviously had plans otherwise to release it anyway.
