    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.

    After a bit too conservative Forza Horizon 3, which was just an improved second Horizon, the latest game in the series easily exceeded my expectations. Its world is enormous and full of various activities (including seasonal events), the driving model is exceptional both on and off road, there are over 450 varied cars and the PC version is spectacular. All that makes Forza Horizon 4 the best open world racing game I have ever played. [12/2018, p.66]

    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.

    More than enough cars, countless modes and races, unlocking all modes takes a little too long.

    great game that will eat up many free time hours doing solo or banging it out with friends.

    great game that will eat up many free time hours doing solo or banging it out with friends.
    lots & LOTS of cars but some you may never get cause of wheel spins.
    things i don't care for is the clothing & dancing BS.
    Oh, almost forgot how i HATE you can't sell your extra cars like in forza motorsport, you're forced to auction or delete which is TOTALLY BS !

    Game great but very repetitive. To be honest, it could easily have been UK DLC for Horizon 3.

    Game great but very repetitive. To be honest, it could easily have been UK DLC for Horizon 3.

    Horizon 4 could easily be a 10/10 but it lacks social features and it's still a buggy mess from launch.

    Pros:
    - Game is on Game Pass, you don't have to spend $60 on this.
    -- I feel like every Forza game should be on Game Pass.
    - The seasons are pretty great, each have different races and set barn finds.

    Major flaws:
    - In your 'FH4 Group' that you join. There isn't a button in that tab that say's "Join group's session."
    - Buggy mess. Contacted developers on both forums and Twitter but issues aren't being fixed. They would rather fix in-game credit glitches then the actual game.
    -- Bugs? Crashes to desktop, lag spikes, freezes and more.
    - Limited songs on radio stations, after while, you hear the same song multiple times throughout a play session.
