Downloadable content is one of the best ways to extend a game’s lifespan. Whether it is additional multiplayer maps in a shoot-‘em-up or an extra quest/mission in a role-playing game, offering the player something more is a great way to keep them playing the title.

Forza Motorsport developer, Turn 10, have regularly outputted downloadable content, mostly in the form of new cars to drive in-game. The cars come in packs, such as The Summer Velocity Car Pack. World Class Car Pack and the Exotic Car Pack.

To determine which cars Forza Motorsport 3 players wanted in the game, Turn 10 released a poll, allowing gamers to select which cars would make up the Community Choice Classics Pack – the latest car pack to hit the Xbox Live Marketplace.

The final results of the pull and the tracks that would be appearing in the pack were:

  • 1971 AMC Javelin-AMX
  • 1973 BMW Motorsport 2002 Turbo
  • 1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS 454
  • 1971 De Tomaso Pantera
  • 1982 DeLorean DMC-12
  • 1987 Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth
  • 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II
  • 1978 Saab 99 Turbo
  • 1983 Volvo 242 Turbo Evolution
  • 1957 Ferrari 250 California

For car lovers, the list is quite impressive, featuring ten of the best-designed cars over the past 54 years. Each one has been brilliantly recreated from its real life counterparts and ported into the game. In addition, the choice of cars will please car fanatics, having been selected by Forza Motorsport players themselves.

The car pack comes with a 400 Microsoft Points price tag which, when broken down, isn’t a very good deal. This works out as approximately £3.20, which is approximately 32p per car.

If you’re a classic car lover and a massive Forza Motorsport 3 player, then the Community Choice Classics Pack is for you. Otherwise, it’s probably worth saving your Microsoft Points.
