    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.

    Mucho contenido, mientras los demás juegos se limitan a carreras o solo rally o gt o callejeras una sola diciplina aquí en Horizon está todo, en autos tenemos desde monoplazas de 100cc hasta hypercars y opciones de personalización muy detalladas.

    tenemos un juego bien pulido impresionante visualmente buena música para todos los gustos, Horizon 4 te atrapa por los sentidos. la interacción del jugador con todo en el juego es genial y bastante inmersiva prácticamente todo el juego reacciona a tus logros es gratificante escuchar que se hable de tus carreras en la radio.

    lo único que le echo en falta es el antagonista final por así decirlo esa carrera donde te ganabas el auto insignia del juego.

    en conclusión Horizonte 4 lo tiene todo y le puede encantar a cualquiera sin ser necesariamente un fan del automovilismo.

    Mi nota seria un 9.7 por quitarme la carrera final

The detail in the cars and world isBeen playing this on PC at 4k60 maxed as well as Xbox one X and I have to say it's visually stunning. The detail in the cars and world is unmatched especially in an open world racer. It also has almost no pop in which is another amazing feat. The audio is every bit as good as the visuals as well although some cars have reused audio but that's understandable since there are over 450.

    Gameplay wise this easily tops previous Horizon titles and the seasons add a ton of replay value. The addition of Rally focused races is also a welcome addition. This is hands down the best open world racer and I've played them all regardless of platform.

    The game is also incredibly polished and bug free. I have yet to have a single issue in well over 100 hours except a single crash due to pushing the overclock on my gtx1080 too far.

    Last but not least this game runs significantly better than fh3 or fm7 on lower spec machines so you can hit 60+fps with higher settings or resolution.

The Map ist a littlePlay it now 8 Hours and its one of the most Beautiful Games ever. The Landscape, Towns and the Cars are very impressive. The Map ist a little bit more bigger than FH3. Many different Streets are implemented (Really, normal and others)

    The Onlinepart of the game is cool but not for me. I play it actually offline with the old Drivatars.

    The Handling is a little bit better than in FH3 but not on the Same Level with FM and GTS!

    In the first 8 Hours i can play it without Bugs. (Good work Playground)

    HDR are just WOW!

    I updated this later if i play 20/30 Hours.

    In short, it is an expensive game, which after several hours becomes repetitive and makes you stop wanting to play it. There are moreIn short, it is an expensive game, which after several hours becomes repetitive and makes you stop wanting to play it. There are more accessible options that offer similar experiences. Car DLCs are abusive but those are everywhere. It is a game that approves, of course, but that is not the revelation of the decade. Personally, if I had known what it ended up being, I would have expected some black friday. Expand
