I have. Forza is better.Easy...Live For Speed. Forza is a great arcade game, like Gran Turismo 4. But you if you want realistic physics, try Live For Speed.
You have no idea how good the 360 controllers areyou're driving with a controller and calling forza the most realistic racing game ever?:?
I'm doing a GT2 right now, next is an F40, the 944 will go after that.944 Turbo around the 'ring

LFS is at least a _true_ simulator, nothing is faked, everything is simulated down to tire dynamics, wear and sounds (even though some find them crappy, but at least they aren't sampled).
Race slicks will break away more quickly than street tires thats for sure, but its not always as quick as the game shows.Yeah, and the cars still handle like rubbish. I agree with Vitamin J that forza is better in terms of driving. While it is not 100% accurate, it is the only SIM that I can spend a few hours at a time with and not walk away disgusted at.
LFS and tire traction is HORRIBLE. In real life, most tires break away traction slowly and consistently- not abruptly like soap. Their front wheel drive is overly biased towards UNDERsteer in braking, where as IRL, you can induce OVERsteer in an fwd car(with and without abs).
laptimes don't tell you anything actually.Race slicks will break away more quickly than street tires thats for sure, but its not always as quick as the game shows.
Also, weigh transfer is a huge part of Forza, not so much other games. In Forza every car handles just how you tune it. You can have terrible understeer in your Corvette and huge oversteer in your Civic if you tune them that way.
Lap times in Forza are within 1 second from their real life counterparts in identical cars. Thats pretty much all you need to know.
