Time To Buy That Wheel For The Xbox 360 - Forza 2 Is Coming

We all know that Forza Motorsport 2 is coming to the Xbox 360 in May, but what we didn't know is what we'd be driving when that happened. The Forza team has been leaking car lists for months now, and finally, the full list is out. Posted Thursday on the official Forza website, the full list can be found here.

The list is impressive to say the least. Just about every major manufacturer can be found, and the offerings include new and classic cars, as well as special edition racers. No less than 20 Ferrari's are featured on the list, along with such other notable names as Maserati, Lotus, Shelby, Porsche, and Aston Martin. Heck, even the Honda Civic in on the list (the racing version, of course).

Forza is a true racing sim, and is perhaps the purest sim to be had on any console. Racing fans everywhere have been waiting for this one since the 360's release, and it's sure to live up to the hype. But as I mentioned, driving those beauties with anything but a wheel is a tragedy, so seriously consider picking up the Wireless Racing Wheel to go along with this title. The game is scheduled to feature force feedback, in order to take full advantage of what the wheel has to offer.

Face it, you'll probably never own a Porsche or Ferrari, so this is as close as you're going to get. And if you think the wheel is too expensive, just think of all the money you'll save on speeding tickets.
