    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'm not a huge fan of 2nd and 3rd entry in the series but this one finally got it right. One of the best racing games I've ever played.I'm not a huge fan of 2nd and 3rd entry in the series but this one finally got it right. One of the best racing games I've ever played. Horizon 4 really woke some feelings I haven't had in years playing a video game.

    Setting plays a huge part in open world games whether its a racing game or what ever. UK was perfect choice for this one. A breath of fresh air 'cause you just don't see that very often. Usually its LA or some boring like a European place. I really hope next entry will take place in Japan.

    Controls feel tight and better than before, probably 'cause this was made for new generation consoles. Hell, I can even drift with a game pad. Ai balance issues between race types have been fixed and this was something I didn't believe would happen. This restored my faith in turn 10 and playground games as a developer. Multiplayer events are super fun and very well implemented.

    The game is absolutely beautiful. Lighting is top notch and the world is very immersive. I don't know if that's the right word but it makes me feel like I'm really sitting in that car driving trough British country side. Last time this happened was when I got ps1 as a Christmas present back in a day and it just blew my mind. I can't remember when i had this much fun playing a modern game. Holy hell I'm impressed.

    Only con is the car roster. There is just too many boring BMWs and too few interesting cars. But at least Porsche is back so that's good.

    I'm actually little bit lost for words here. Horizon 4 is so good it doesn't need a long ass review. It's awesome, go play it!
