    Forza Horizon 4 is one of the most polished driving games ever made. The feeling, the amount of content, the spectacular open world and the unbelievable visuals are some pieces of this puzzle that match perfectly to form, all together, a true masterpiece that is perfect in almost every single aspect.

    Forza Horizon 4 is nothing short of fantastic. With a host of content, backed by a fantastic roster of cars that tread the fine line between arcade and simulation perfectly. While the amalgamated UK may be a little too pristine, not completely reflecting reality, it's such a stunning and enjoyable place to race around that any issues are washed away in the utter fun you're having. Forza Horizon 4 is, without a shadow of a doubt, the pinnacle of the series and arguably the best racing game you can buy.
  3. It incorporates elements of arcade driving, simulation racing, storytelling, exploration, discovery, collection and even role-playing in ways that few other racing franchises have even tried and none can match. If there's space for just one racing game on your shelf, Forza Horizon 4 is probably the one it ought to be.

    Forza Horizon 4 is beautiful and exhilarating, with seamless multiplayer, compelling progression, and more cars than you know what to do with.

    Even just as a racing game in general, it’s an absolute joy to play. No other racer comes close in terms of this level of polish – from the driving model to the freedom of customization, detailed open-world, and all-around gorgeous presentation. I fully agree with the final part of the game’s opening dialogue: Don’t go anywhere, Horizon is here to stay. At ease, ladies and gentlemen. The king has returned to his kingdom.

    Unless you're looking for a hardcore sim, Forza Horizon is still the best racing series around.

    A AAA game produced in 2018 with the backing of Microsoft simply should be far more technically sound than Forza Horizon 4 in its current state. And this perhaps is the greatest travesty for this otherwise brilliant game.

    This is one of the best games, let alone racing games, I have ever played. Don't tell PS4 that...

    Amazing arcade racing game. Absolutely beautiful in 4k at 60fps. Took away one point because of the weird decision to not let people quitAmazing arcade racing game. Absolutely beautiful in 4k at 60fps. Took away one point because of the weird decision to not let people quit online team mode. After one match ends, the next one begins immediately and nobody has a chance to leave if they want to. They're forced to leave after the next one starts, causing their team to be down a person.

    Pretty game.
    Racing can be easy and arcady or with assists off exciting and more of a challenge. Lots of races and cars, with challenges in the open world. The opening is a bit meh, but as soon as you get to weekly seasons the game opens up.
    My only complaint is online doesn't work. I am content doing everything solo, but it would be nice to use the online portion at least to try.

    The game itself is good, but the update 1.197.899.2 just bricked the game.
    Simply can't run a game I ran days ago smoothly. Crashes, no error

    Simply can't run a game I ran days ago smoothly. Crashes, no error message, nothing.

    Also, Microsoft Store is horrible. Had to download the full game 3 times due to download errors, and it looks my solution will be..... guess what, uninstall and download again.
