THAT old sims vs arcade debate over what's best about driving games has been beautifully highlighted once more with the release of Forza Motorsport 3.
And while I'll freely admit to being more inclined towards your trading paint, smash and grab racer who's less concerned about the accuracy of in-game physics and more interested in thrilling - if unrealistic - gameplay, there is something stunning about the gorgeously rendered tracks and landscape through which drivers race in Forza 3.
If you're the type that likes a driving game to be as closely mirroring real motorsport as is imaginable on a console, then this one is for you - Forza 3 will undoubtedly corner off the sim market with its breathtaking attention to detail.
In the true spirit of motorsport, the game experience includes the finely tuned and highly engineered racing machines designed by the world's most prestigious racing teams.
Everyone has a dream drive, whether it's an exotic sports car like the new Audi R8 V10, a classic American muscle car like the Ford GT or a hot Asian import like the Nissan 370Z.
And, like the major famed circuits such as Le Mans, Le Sarthe and Bugatti, they are all here.
Gamers can get into the cockpit of some of the world's most famous race cars including the Peugeot Sport 908, the Audi FSI Champion Racing R8 and the Ferrari MOMO Doran Racing F333 SP.
But where the game wins over its competitors hands down, is the artistry of the graphics and most realistically performing cars.
