    Forza Horizon 4 is a prime example of a complete racing title, and although the racing genre is not as popular as it once was, Horizon 4 still manages to raise the standards and present itself not only as the best entry in the Horizon series but as one of the best racing titles of all time. What we see today in Horizon 4, including both superb offline and online sections, is incredible sound design for every single vehicle, and amazing visuals that are mixed with a beautiful change of seasons. All are examples that other developers can use for their future titles.

    Forza Horizon 4 can be summed up with a single word: Masterpiece.

    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.

    Once Forza Horizon 4 opens up and the map is cluttered with points of interest, you really can’t ask for much more from a racer. It hits all of the right notes in terms of racing, exploration, rewards, and customization. Depending on your focus of play, you can turn it into a difficult game of precision that requires proper vehicle tuning, or a light arcade experience of tearing across Great Britain with no cares in the world. Forza Horizon has long been my favorite racing series, and this installment shows that there’s plenty of gas left in the tank.
  5. Stunning and consistent as ever, this is more of the fantasy racing festival we know and love, but this time in a shared online world with even more driving diversity thanks to the regularly shifting seasons.

    You can debate the merits of some of this version's additions, but the same strong core that has pushed Forza Horizon to the top of the driving sim heap remains firmly in place here. It's an incredibly impressive graphical production that puts even its beautiful predecessor to shame, and it's a true pleasure when out on the road. Forza Horizon 4 is one of a handful of showcase games that truly ought to sell you on an Xbox One X and a 4K TV.
  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.

The mix of authentic British landscape with an ever-changing dynamic seasons system makes it a must have. There is nothing I can say negative or even slightly negative about this masterpiece. Playground Games should definitely be proud of themselves for creating this.

    The graphics look amazing and are probably one of the many reasons everyone should own an Xbox One X. This game has NOT been rushed the slightest bit, as everything has had so much time and effort put into it.

    Under the surface, these are two meaningful improvements that are noticeable if you play the game a lot, but aren't very apparent fromUnder the surface, these are two meaningful improvements that are noticeable if you play the game a lot, but aren't very apparent from watching videos:

    - AI in FH3 can break physics on higher difficulties, taking corners with much higher grip that you can't match. This is not the case in FH4, along with tweaked physics that add more feel and less understeer, this significantly makes races more enjoyable and less frustrating if you like racing good AI and eeking out the most grip from the track and physics.

    - Roads are curvy with nice elevation changes, which feel more enjoyable to race or just drive on compared to FH3. In Winter and Autumn, lower grip is even more fun to take turns, with the back end stepping out on loose snow or leaves.

    Far from perfect (but not that far) Forza Horizon 4 is currently the best open world driving game out there. Quite a great setting and map,Far from perfect (but not that far) Forza Horizon 4 is currently the best open world driving game out there. Quite a great setting and map, with a nice size, all four seasons giving it a different look and feel every week, a big amount of cars, way more things to do compared to previous games...

    Multiplayer still needs some tweaks and as a start, FM7's updates need to come soon here (like the new livery editor and photo mode features) but until a new and better game comes, this is really well balanced, and the bad parts are not that big compared to the good ones.
