Oct 10, 2017Forza Motorsport 7 is a perfectly balanced racing simulator. The game is just great in every aspect.
Oct 4, 2017Microsoft pitched Forza Motorsport 7 as the ultimate automotive playset, and it’s hard to argue otherwise. With enough cars to fill a dozen museums and the most generous selection of tracks to date in the series, the amount of driving, experimenting, and racing here is absolutely mammoth. Accessible as always for beginners but crammed with content targeted at lifelong car junkies, Forza Motorsport 7 is Turn 10’s finest love letter to speed and style this generation, no matter what language you speak.
Oct 8, 2017Forza Motorsport 7 is absolutely stunning on PC, with a solid 4K / 60 fps presentation that offers a spectacular driving experience.
Oct 3, 2017Even with an imperfect roster and a selection of modes that doesn't compare to the comprehensiveness of Forza 6 at launch, Forza Motorsport 7 is still a feature-rich and competition-diverse bundle of racing events that keep you coming back for more. The ability to control the weather to create rich, painterly cloudy backdrops goes a long way in making up for the lack of zombie modes and the Toyota MR2.
PC PowerPlayDec 1, 2017A brilliant, detailed racing game that stays true to the series lineage, for better and for worse. [Issue#268, p.64]
Oct 7, 2017Forza Motorsport 7 is a great game. There's no doubting you'll enjoy a lot of your time with Forza, but you're also guaranteed to run into a few problems here and there. It's extremely approachable and simply oozes content out of the gate. Racing is fun and exciting even at the worst of times. It is, however, marred by an invasive microtransaction system as well as elements of the game feeding into this, either forcing a grind or inevitably letting you pay real money to have easier access to later content.
Sep 28, 2017I don’t believe it is as good a game as Forza Horizon 3, despite having much better tracks, but would not hesitate to recommend the console version to any driving game fan. Had I not experienced the aforementioned performance issues, I would be inclined to give Forza Motorsport 7 my highest recommendation for PC players. As things stand now, I cannot give it any higher than a 6/10. If a patch arrives in a timely fashion (the 8 months it took to fix Horizon 3 is unacceptable) that addresses the performance problems, I would have no issues with a 9/10.

Oct 3, 2017Before I learned about the Forza Franchise and played Forza Horizon 2 on XBox I hated racing games. Really. This genre bored me to death sinceBefore I learned about the Forza Franchise and played Forza Horizon 2 on XBox I hated racing games. Really. This genre bored me to death since SEGA Ralley and Daytona USA on my Saturn System. Those were the last racers I enjoyed before I got in touch with Forza on XBox in 2015. Forza 7 is in terms of gameplay, content, physics and graphical fidelity the Olympus of racing across all platforms. Its the perfection of the whole franchise. On default when you begin a forza motorsports game are set to bring a fun and arcadic gameplay even to the untalentest gamer and it offers Options enough to give the pros a experience very very close to a sim style kind of racing games. Forza 7 runs great on XBox One (S), XBox One X and high end PCs. I dont know how turn 10 could be able to top this experience anymore in further games.… Expand
Dec 1, 2019Great game with 800 cars to choose. GT Sport is nowhere near that level currently.
PC port is much more optimized right now.
Jan 28, 2019It's nice racing game, but handling feels too arcade. Miss Forza Motorsport 4 times.
Jan 31, 2022If I had to describe this game with one word, it would be "Inconsistent". In everything. Graphics, sound, handling, etc. The only consistentIf I had to describe this game with one word, it would be "Inconsistent". In everything. Graphics, sound, handling, etc. The only consistent thing is the AI in singleplayer - it's consistently bad. In the end, all I got from this game is TOCA 3 nostalgia, but unfortunately, TOCA 3 does not really work anymore on modern HS/SW, so I am stuck with this instead.
Graphically, the cars are mostly well modeled. Environment, however, is straight out of early 2000's, increasing that TOCA 3 nostalgia. Compared to F-Horizon 4, which is an open world game - the environments are much uglier, despite being more contained and thus theoretically allowing for much more detail. Theoretically only, in this case. Furthermore, the lightning and reflections are for the most part worse as well.
Sound is okay, I guess. Some of the cars sound like lawn-movers on crack. However, this seems to be an area the Forza games are consistently serviceable, but nothing more. There's a lot of cars and I guess the devs don't have the resources to record sounds for all of them + various configurations / upgrades so they use generic soundscape and tweak it a little.
The amount of tracks is again serviceable, but it's nothing special. It's all just the most common tracks.
The meat of the game is the huge vehicle selection, which is great on one hand. On the other, a lot of them do not handle very well. Often, it feels more like steering huge ships rather than sports cars. My almost 2 ton Mercedes E Klasse Wagon feels more nimble than some racing cars in FM7. There's also some vehicle classes with only 1 or two cars - like the ATVs - and no tracks specifically for them, no autocross, etc. Feels like they just took random stuff lying around in their model library and put it in with no plans to actually expand on the roster of cars and tracks in any way.
The game is also extremely grindy, it takes ages to get a decent garage, even with buying the ultimate edition and getting a bunch of different cars. Can't imagine how much of a pain it is to start out with just one car and try and build your way up from that.
Setting up solo races or tournaments is a pain, it's complicated, there's very little to no tooltips and settings are often unclear, so until you learn to work with the convoluted system, you'll do a lot of trial and error attempts which is a serious pain in posterior.
AI is nonexistent. It's just like a train, on railroad, carts going on rails behind each other, not flinching a bit from the pre-programmed path, not reacting to anything. Sometimes, this leads to funny af situations where the railroad goes too close to pitstop and AI cars get grabbed from the race to go pitstop in lap 1 of 2 lap race. Other times, it is annoying, as AI seems at least partially aware of the positions of other AI cars, but completely oblivious to yours, and they will just ram into you repeatedly. Most of the time, though, it is just boring.
In single-player, your starting position is fixed, and based off of your difficulty - no qualifier, etc. You get points from the position you finish in, but not position gain, so starting from 24th and ending 4th gives you the same reward as starting 4th and ending 4th. If this was only the first race and then the position was based on your overall/tournament standing, I could probably live with it even though it would still be annoying. However, it is not. You start for example 14th, every race in the tournament, no matter your previous race position, no matter your tournament position, etc. In order to progress through the career, you have to, especially in the later groups, consistently podium. A lot of "fun" when you start 24th every race.
Anyways, the game tries to lean more onto the sim part, rather than the cade, but it fails as it lacks, aside from proper driving model for a lot of cars, a lot of features which are a part of IRL racing, and the progression model that is there is a very simplistic and very crap replacement for it.
Really, the game feels just thrown together because some suit at MGS saw a Gran Turismo ad somewhere and remembered they have some similar IP somewhere, so he took 10 guys and had them cobble together something out of legacy assets, just so they could tick a box on a list somewhere.
Add to that the technical problems - the commonly reported crashing, the stuttering and freezing in tournament menus, the sometimes egregiously long loading times - seriously, the time it takes to load into a race is often 2-3 times longer than loading into Forza Horizon 4, which is again, an open world game with a huge map - certainly huge compared to one circuit at a time in FM7.
As an uninspired, unimaginative game with no ambition, cobbled together mostly from older assets or stuff from its sister series (a bunch of the models are just lifted from Horizon), I could perhaps call it painfully average and give it a 5, but factor in the lack of technical polish and 4 it is.… Expand

Lesson learned, never buy $60 games with F2P stuff in them.
Never again buying games from Microsoft or any other AAA game dev who does this. Even cosmetic items do not belong in paid games.
This game industry is gross and sickening.
