The lights are on
The complete list of Achievements for Microsoft's Forza Motorsport 4 has leaked, and it looks like you're going to have to spring for Kinect to max out your Gamerscore on the highly anticipated racing title.The website Xbox 360 Achievements broke the story, publishing a complete list of every achievement for Forza 4. It didn't take long for observant readers to notice an Achievement entitled "Look Ma, No Controller!" with the description: "Use Kinect to drive any car in Free Play."It's a five-point Achievement, so not having a Kinect won't cost you serious Gamerscore, but its certainly annoying for completists who haven't purchased the motion controller.
Here's the complete list of Achievements for Forza 4:

This list has been on x360a for a while now.
Well thankfully for me I've never been much of an achievement *** outside of Halo 3 where it was the only way to get all of the armor.
Though that does suck for everyone who does.
Not a huge fan of either, but I gotta ask: Why do people hate it. I understand its a gimmick and it is going to have a short life, but why hate on it?
Wait a second...*flameshield activated*...Ok, go.
If I cared about Achievement Points, I'd be hella mad about needed Kinect to get the max. I'm not, so it doesn't effect me. But I can see this being a new trend. And until there are games I really want on Kinect, I'm not getting one.
I wonder how many people will spend 5o+ bucks to get 5g also I walked past a kinect in best buy and I was pretty far back and the kinect picked up my movements so not good if I use it and I want a snack
This is fine, I never maxed my gamerscore on 3 anyway. Got close, but yea, don't care too much. Game looks great!
I wasn't too impressed with this game at E3
At least is just one achievement unlike most games where almost half of the achievements have to be earned while playing online, and I don't play online because xbox live is not free, so they are cheating me on all those points because I don't want to connect the xbox to the internet
Meh, it's only 5G and I hardly ever max out my gamerscore anyways. Not a loss for me, but it does suck for the people who go all out on gamerscores.
Its an imperfect solution to an imperfect situation. Some people bought Kinect, now there is an achievement for those people. Makes the purchase seem more worthwhile (not just cause of one achievement, but for other games doing the same thing). On the other hand, you have people like me who don't have the Kinect and so can't perfect the game. Still, if its just one, its not so bad. Rainbow Six: Vegas had a similar achievement, and other games have done it as well.
Its still better than crappy MP achievements.
