I just tried out the Forza 5 demo at a Microsoft store. 1 lap on the Laguna Seca raceway. A MS rep selects the car then hands you the controller at the start of the race.

Graphics:
- 1080p 60FPS is very nice. Other than that, it doesn't look much better than Forza 4. Although I didn't get to play around with replays/photo mode
- lack of anisotropic filtering is unfortunately very apparent. Ground textures are noticeably blurry

Gameplay:
- if you played Forza 3 or 4, you know exactly what to expect

Other:
- the controller is awesome. Very comfortable and the force feedback in the triggers is really neat. Will definitely pick one up for PC games even if I never get an X1
- loading times are HORRIBLE. 30+ seconds to load a track

Anybody else get to try it yet?

30 seconds to load a track? Wow. At least there are only 14 tracks to load.
Take One look at the resolution and walk away...

Yeh the demos of forza showing that track have shocking load times, closer to 45 seconds to a minute in most cases. It is a demo station though, may be improved somewhat with final game installed to HDD.

Are the demos running straight off a disc? I can't imagine why they'd do it that way.
