Forza Motorsport 2

It’s not just a skid anymore; it’s a full-blown slip. From a release date originally set for the autumn of 2006 to the short delay to the start of this year, to one now set somewhere in May, Forza Motorsport 2 is slipping back as quickly as broken New Year’s resolutions.

But while we’re suffering with every delay, the Turn 10 team seems to keep coming up great. And why? Because the competition has come and gone without really threatening their imminent eminence; Need for Speed: Carbon, Test Drive Unlimited and Import Tuner all started first but all have stalled first. Meanwhile Sony has handily cancelled Forza ’s only arch-rival in the realism and the super hi-resolution stakes, Gran Turismo HD as a full-blown game.
