I wasnt planning on buying this game (not enough $$), and the demo really hasnt made me feel sad about it. It looks awesome, but the damn AI is pissing me off. When I have the F^&king line dont F&*king use me as a rolling guard rail. Im just feeling this game is more of the same, which is great, but Im not feeling it. Im sure I'll pick it up though on down the road

Yeah, the AI is something that I'm sure hasn't changed much and they'll knock you off of the road or line in a heart beat.
That's one of the things that I hate about the racing games. They need to work the AI better so that like in real life, they'll give way for you to make a pass as opposed to blocking you or forcing you off of the road.
I can't tell you how many times in a tight race that at the last lap, a car would nudge you enough to spin you out and lose the race. Talk about being pissed off.

Did you guys read the review that was posted on the previous page?

Of course, you won't be driving alone. Up to seven AI drivers will challenge you on the tracks. Forza 3 uses Turn 10's Drivatar system, which basically teaches the AI based on a player's driving style. It creates a dynamic AI that learns from you. That was in Forza 2. What is new is the AI pressure system. Get behind an AI car and, depending on the driver, they might make mistakes. You may see the AI spin-out on a turn, take a bad line, or make other noticeable errors. There are times when I play Forza 3 and forget that the AI is controlled by a computer. Often it feels like I am racing against real people, which I appreciate immensely.

The AI elements aren't perfect, however. One of Forza's biggest drawbacks is in its AI settings. There are numerous assists to alter how your car performs, but there are just three AI difficulty options: Easy, medium, and hard. Even for average drivers, medium will quickly prove too easy. But, for me, hard can be really hard at times. It leads to too many races that are either far too easy to win or seem almost impossible to compete in. If Forza 3 had one more setting between medium and hard, it would be perfect. But it doesn't and, for me, it hurts the balance over the course of the career mode.
Sounds like the AI will be better in this version of the game, but I didn't really have any issues with the AI in the previous versions.
