    Forza Motorsport 7 is a perfectly balanced racing simulator. The game is just great in every aspect.

    Microsoft 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.

    ​Forza Motorsport 7 is absolutely stunning on PC, with a solid 4K / 60 fps presentation that offers a spectacular driving experience.​

    Even 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.

    A brilliant, detailed racing game that stays true to the series lineage, for better and for worse. [Issue#268, p.64]

    Forza 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.

    I 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.

    Before 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

    It's nice racing game, but handling feels too arcade. Miss Forza Motorsport 4 times.

    Oh well... were do I even begin.
    Forza Motorsports should be a TOP 10 game and this can be true if you played the game for up to 2 hours. If you played the game for more than 4-5 hours you'll begin to see the problems arise from everywhere.

    The Game does not have a good A.I. at all. I'll describe the basic movement of the cars. First minutes of race, all the cards stick together for the first minute, after that, either if you manage to pass by all of them or not, the first 2 cars will speed up way ahead, like they have a proton torpedo as a back burner or something. Any increase in difficulty will only make matters worse as those 2 first cars will seem like they are defying the laws of gravity and acceleration. All the other cars are basically expendable.

    Since you can't quality for a good spot you'll always starts in the middle and need to scale up to first place. This becomes boring after a while. More than 3 hours and you'll want to dump this game into the trash, screaming in agony. Why there is no qualification anymore? Why are all cars behaving like this? it is so predicable and unreal.

    Game difficulty with assists is GONE, you no longer get more points for driving like a pro, you'll get points by adding MODS which is BY FAR the least interesting aspect of the game. I hated mods on Forza 6 and tried to minimize it's use but you can't do that here because it is the only way to get extra points for each race so you'll have to use it whether you like it or not.

    That's the second worse mistake Forza 7 made. You don't have a choice in how you want to play anymore, you'll force into the stupid buy packs and equip mods...

    Then, there's the other worse mistake they could make, lock cars into homologation. You're no longer able to tune your cars with REAL MODS, not those fake cards. As soon as you try to increase the motor's power you exceed the category limit and you're locked out from modding your car, so tell me, why mod a car anyway if it's only useful for a FREE RACE outside the campaign and it's also not available in multiplayer?. Why this travesty?.

    Not only that, you're no longer able to buy any car you want, you need to up your collectionist level to get the car you want so you're forced (once again) to do a stupid progresion buying cars you are NOT interested at all so you can get to that car you want to drive.

    The game focuses so much on the Mods and Packs and random cars inside packs that I feel like I'm playing a stupid freemium game from my android phone, they completely trashed the good old Forza 6.

    All of this combined with the evil necessity of the game of putting you're entire body on display so you'll know you'll have 500 suits and helmets to buy.. your avatar is everywhere and it's useless. I prefer the Forza 6 menu where I could easily go into the Garage or Race or just compete online.

    Last but not least.. the beautiful garage is gone so, basically, you no longer own a car like you did in Forza 6. That "appeal" you felt when you bought a car and you check it in your garage.. you felt like it was yours to do whatever you pleased..

    Now you're forced to buy non-interesting cars so you can get to the one you want and on top of that you are also forced to play the car "as it is" because doing any kind of mod will lock you out because of getting out of homologation.

    Whoever devised this changes should be fired right away.

    My beautiful Forza series got completely trashed for profit. This game now feels like a rip off, a cheap Forza built for the masses of dumb people who just WANT TO RACE and BUY STUFF.

    And don't get me started with the VIP treatment on this game...

    If you still have an Xbox One, go play Forza 6, it's the best in the series so far, even with the troubled rain, which is the only thing that improved on this game.
