    Again a little bit better and not because of continuity, but because of two years worth of obvious work. Thanks to that you can drown dozens or hundreds of hours racing on the ground that gave the world Jeremy Clarkson. And yeah, it has a couple of good cars too. [Issue#289]

    Playground Games managed to improve on an already almost perfect formula, adding even more modes and freedom for the players, with gorgeous visuals and the added variety of season changes in a shared world. Simply the best, prettiest and most content-filled arcade racer around. A must buy for everyone.

    It changes the game beyond visual sheen and charges players with new ways to think about races; about their cars or their car setups (if you’re so inclined). It makes the racing even more visceral this time around, which when you consider the heritage here, is no small feat.

    Playground Games has managed to deliver the best arcade games over the last decade and with Forza Horizon 4 proves it once again. It's a must for all Xbox One owners.

    Forza Horizon 4 might be a bit conservative. Apart from the continuously changing seasons and the amazing British landscapes, you could call this a new version of Forza Horizon 3.

    Building upon everything that has continued to mark out the Forza Horizon series as something special and unique its own right - beyond being Forza Motorsport's carefree sibling - Forza Horizon 4 demonstrates once again just how recklessly entertaining driving roughshod across an open environment can be. Revelling in what makes Britain great, Forza Horizon 4 also proves once more that Playground Games is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to delivering a polished, deep, and thrilling open-world racing experience.
  7. 80
    Forza Horizon 4 is likely the best looking and most robust game in the series, even if Forza fatigue is beginning to set in with only slight changes to the established formula in this release.

    I have never played a Forza Motorsport or Forza Horizon before so I didn't know what I was getting into. Here is what I think of Forza HorizonI have never played a Forza Motorsport or Forza Horizon before so I didn't know what I was getting into. Here is what I think of Forza Horizon 4.

    GRAPHICS: Wow, this game is beautiful. It looks great on a base Xbox One and even more amazing on the Xbox One X with 4K and HDR. The cars have a lot of detail and the customization shows on every car on the server. The game has great scenic areas perfect for taking photos. The worse graphics are lack of options of the drivatars. But that's it.

    PRESENTATION: You get to see and drive all the seasons in the first 10 minutes of the game so the intro is awesome. You also know what your goal is from the beginning, to be invited to the Horizon Circuit. There are in engine cut scenes for major events/races, pre-racing taunting, victory celebrations and the pause menu looks great. It's all great.

    SOUND: The music in this game is fun too. Major races have preset tracks, however most of the time you will be listening to one of the radio stations. All the tracks are great. The cars also sound great. None of them sound the same and sometimes I found myself turning off the radio just to hear the roar of the engines. There's even some fun thrown in with musical horns.

    GAMEPLAY: Let's get straight to it, this game is super fun! It's more than just a racing game. There are "Danger Zones" to discover and perform awesome jumps, collectible billboards to smash and some of them are difficult to get to, speed zones, barns to find vehicles in, wheel spins, and best of all there's a progression system for each car! Want to be the best drag racer? You can focus on your drag cars. Want to be the best off-road racer? You can focus on those vehicles. You can even play the game in co-op (best part of being an Xbox owner is you get to play most games with your friends). This is easily the most simple and fun game I have played in a very long time.

    This is a very well put together, visually stunning video game. I cant say much more than what others already have.

    My only gripe is the weird cutscenes where some npc is talking to you but the character is facing away from the gamer cause they didnt animate their faces.

    Also there needs to be more customization options with the music playing at the Festival Site. Its really annoying and I wish I could turn it off.

    Small things really and Id give it a 9.5 if I could.

    If you like racing games you will enjoy it for sure. If you arent a racing gamer, give it a shot anyways it stunningly beautiful and quite fun.

    Being on Game Pass is pretty damn cool too.

    Oh heres one other minor issue. The exhaust sounds are trash for a majority of the cars. I really think they need to overhaul them.

    Ok, so it's a 9 after all. ;)
