Ok here's my dilema - I was all for buying Forza 3 when it comes out later in the month - but I've heard good things about shift and downloaded the Xbox360 demo last night and thought it was pretty good. I downloaded the Forza 3 demo last week and wasn't blown away....

Anyone in the same boat - or have some thoughts

Just spotted this on my ISP's homepage

Unsure if this will help.

A little remiss of me - I did make a decision and am very happy.

I bought Forza III on the recommendation of a good friend (and massive gamer) and think it is great.

Interestingly the Gadget show used a copy for a challenge this week. Racing Johnny Herbert in a real Porsche 911 GT2 (which I was very lucky to have a few very fast passenger rides in last year around Silverstone) against Jason and an impressive gaming rig (3 Xbox360s running 3 big TVs and a Porsche gaming wheel / pedals etc)

Here's a link to that part of the programme : http://fwd.five.tv/gadget-show/videos/challenge/gadget-show-versus-part-four

I would have voted for Forza anyway. I've got neither of the games but have heard much better stuff about Forza than NFS. Forza is meant to be much more realistic.
