    Forza Horizon 3 is huge, varied and constantly entertaining. It treads a fine balance between simulation and arcade—bombastic and silly at times, but also an accomplished populist racing game. I don't like the script, the cast of irritants manning the radio stations, the way playing your own music in-game requires the use of Microsoft Groove, or the fact that one of the nicknames you can choose is ‘Bantersaurus Rex’. More seriously, I worry Microsoft will continue its habit of integrating DLC cars and expansions in overbearing ways (Forza Horizon 2 went as far as playing an in-game trailer for its Storm Island expansion.) But these are annoyances I'm prepared to forgive in a game as good as this.
  2. One of the most successful productions in recent years.

    Forza Horizon 3 is a a great driving experience, probably the best in years. The Australian landscape is full of things to discover, and it's so sweet to get lost in such a charming setting. Buy it without any doubt, even if you're a PC gamer.

    The high-end PC settings don’t live up to our expectations, but the handling, courses, and community features are all top of their class. Forza Horizon 3 is the type of racing game that just about anyone can pick up and have fun with, but it still includes depth for committed players. Put that together with a beautiful environment that you can explore at your own pace, and Forza Horizon 3 is one of the strongest and most well-rounded open world racers we’ve ever played.

    If the joy of driving were a melody, Forza Horizon 3 would play almost every note perfectly. A milestone for the racing genre, but with some technical problems.

    The Forza Horizon series has long been the best arcade racer of the modern era, and this third iteration keeps that streak alive.
  7. 80
    If you can sacrifice an unlocked framerate for the locked 30fps option, Forza Horizon 3 is one of the very best looking racing games on PC to date and quite possibly a glimpse of what console players can expect from Microsoft's next console.

    The worst thing about Forza Horizon 3 is that it may have stolen me away from the 'Forza Motorsport' series for good.

    This game had many technical problems at release date, but most of them are already gone. It's by now the best racing game you can getThis game had many technical problems at release date, but most of them are already gone. It's by now the best racing game you can get (whether you prefer arcade or simulations). The one thing that's a problem is, if you're going to play with your friends, you are going to have problems, as the game often disconnects players from groups (even during races). Expand

    Great game, but with some troubles. First thing, there are checkpoints, that are no problem for me, but the npc drivers don't care if the passGreat game, but with some troubles. First thing, there are checkpoints, that are no problem for me, but the npc drivers don't care if the pass them or not, and no penalty for them. Secondly, your car can easily lose controls if the enemy bump to your rear wheel, but you can't do the same to them. Thirdly, it is very expensive. Relax guys, it is not such awesome game to put it so high.. Expand

    i7 4770k, 1080GTX, 16GB DDR3, Windows 10 Anniversay Update, Samsung 840 Pro.
    Game runs like a turd. Yes I have MSAA set to x0 and have the latest and greatest Nvidia driver specifically for this game.
    I will seemingly be driving in races getting flawless 60fps (V-sync on) @ all ultra (MSAA x0), @ 1440p. Then suddenly this weird rubber-banding / jitters happens and it feels like some sort of server side lag rather than any GPU issue when my brain thinks my car is slowing down, but actually in-game time is stopping.... then don't get me started on how the game crashed within first 30 seconds on launch the first time, the unskippable opening videos, the unskippable cutscenes, the same cutscenes that cause the game to sometimes crash (so far 10 crashes, 3 hrs in), the garage car customisation menu LAGS. Yes you read that right, simply switching the rear wing on my car in the menu scrolling left/right has a 5 seconds LAG as it sort of downloads the textures for the menu button? (I'm not even talking about the visual change on the car, I'm talking about the bloody menu button!). The game also launches in a window, rather than exclusive fullscreen just to annoy you everytime you go to launch it after it crashed again. And to top it all off, if I wanted to try and fix these problems myself, I can't because of UWP. Thanks. What a turd. With patches it could probably be a flawless 9/10 and I'll adjust my score if they bother to patch any of this in the next 2 weeks or so. Otherwise no it's a absolute garbage port.
