Endangered Species Trailer For Forza 4

“We are an endangered species, you and I.” So begins Jeremy Clarkson’s stirring narrative on this trailer for the upcoming release of Forza 4.

Forza 4 Endangered Species

This has to be one of the best trailers for a video game I’ve seen in a long time. It manages to stir the emotions of this petrol head in a way no other advert has done before. The beauty of the Aston Martin DB9, the delicate piano in the soundtrack and Jeremy appealing to the feelings of oppressed car lovers the world over, it all comes together perfectly.

Does it make me want to rush out and buy an Xbox 360 and pre-order my copy? Maybe not, but it does make me want to go out and drive, just for the fun of it.

Enjoy the trailer … I did.

And here’s Jeremy’s voiceover in full:

“We are an endangered species, you and I. We lovers of speed. We devotees of power, performance and noise.

“Go away”, we are told, “and take your carbon-fibre and your fire-spitting V12s with you”.

There’s hardly a place for us out here anymore, not amongst all the commuters and congestion. Not in this growing age of safety and restraint, where practicality trumps adrenalin. Where the ratio of miles to the gallon is championed over horsepower to the weight.

The evidence is everywhere. You and I are being squeezed out, pushed aside and hunted down at every hairpin turn.

And yet there is hope. There is a safe haven, a place where we are free to challenge conventions, push the laws of physics and drive our powerful, our beautiful machines hard.

It’s not a racetrack in Germany or even a highway in Montana. It’s not even a real place, actually. It’s more than that. It’s a communal celebration of horsepower, torque, grip, leather, technology, beauty. It is the last bastion of automotive lust and it’s right there, in your living room.

Should you want to buy a copy of Forza 4 you don’t have long to wait as it’s released on October 14th.

  1. I LOVE this trailer and literally can’t wait for the game to be released (although I’m holding onto slim chances that I can get an early review copy)!

    Apparently if you’re a 360 LIVE Gold member you can download the Demo now.

  2. Forza is the one thing that makes me wonder if I should have bought an Xbox instead of a PS3. I’d love to spend some time on Forza 4 to see how it compares to Gran Turismo 5. GT5 seems to have lost a little of its magic, it’s almost become too clinical, too … dare I say it … boring.

  3. I played GT5 on a mate’s PS3 and I actually really enjoyed some of the Top Gear track challenges – literally played it for about 3 hours straight because I wanted to defeat evil computer overlord!

    As Forza 4 has TG endorsement, and with superior graphics, AI and gameplay than GT5, sounds like it’s a complete winner…

  4. I am not english speaker, and was a little difficult to get everything, thank you very much for the transcription AWESOME!!!
