    Forza 5 isn't a fluke. It's the product of almost a decade of refinement, evolution and an unbelievable amount of experience on Turn 10's part. In essence, this is a game without any real weaknesses.

    The fifth lap in the Forza Motorsport series is a great start for the speed genre in Xbox One, and the first truly must-have for Microsoft's new hardware.

    Forza Motorsport 5 is what die hard fans of turn 10 deserve. Stunning visuals and great sim-like handling are the highlights of the game, but we need more tracks and cars.

    Technically impressive, but limited on new ideas. Drivatar is the closest to innovation Forza 5 comes, but needs more depth to be worthwhile.

    Forza 5 is as spectacular and solid as ever, but you can't ignore the fact that there's a clear content cutback from the previous game.

    Forza 5 will do as a holdover racing game for now, but for all the bombast that next-gen brings, the game is awfully stagnant, and its lack of competition has never been more apparent.

    Forza Motorsport 5 becomes a game that is outstanding in specific, limited situations, but overall, it's kind of a drag.

The controls are slick andMight be single handedly my favorite racing game I've ever played! And I'm a guy who normally hates racing games! The controls are slick and the feedback from the controllers make the game even better! I'm even considering buying the wheel and I never buy the wheel! Note there's going to be a lot of PlayStation fam Boyz coming on here to smash the game.. just remember to report them. if you're going to buy any game on xbox one it would be this one! A game that truly deserves for the first time I've ever reviewed anything An actual 10! Buy it! Expand

    Jogo muito bom!! Realmente falou uma historia maior por trás do jogo, acho que ficaria mais legal, mas não tira o brilho do jogo de forma alguma!

    All I can say is that having played all the forza games this was a massive disappointment. The main issue is the lack of content. Even withAll I can say is that having played all the forza games this was a massive disappointment. The main issue is the lack of content. Even with all the DLC I am super bored of doing the same tracks over and over again. The game feels totally half finished and it feels like the developers are forcing you into buying the DLC just so you don't get bored. The career mode lacks direction and gets boring pretty quickly as there's really no/little rewards to motivate you to keep playing so there's very little sense of achievement or progression. They've also not included some of the best features of the previous games such as the popular auction house which is disappointing.

    That being said the multiplayer is the saving grace of the game, as the racing is competitive and fun and its super easy to find well populated lobbies. However quite often it does feel like whoever has the quickest setup wins, meaning the average joe has no chance. Its worth noting that the game has split screen which is rare these days as most developers don't seem to bother. Other than that the graphics are decent and certain tracks in particular look lush (prague is beautiful), there's still a good array of cars (although less than previous forza's) and the extensive tuning and paint options are still there.

    At the time of writing this game has been out for a while now and if you can find a very cheap copy it's worth a punt if you're a racing fan, but if not I'd recommend either getting the brilliant project cars instead or waiting for forza 6 and hoping its better than this.

    The good :
    Excellent graphics at a solid 60 fps (even with the post E3 downgrade in the off track detail)
    Awesome sound Amazing detail in
    The good :
    Excellent graphics at a solid 60 fps (even with the post E3 downgrade in the off track detail)
    Awesome sound
    Amazing detail in the rescanned tracks and cars
    Drivatar works well so far

    The meh :
    Much reduced car and track lists

    The awful :
    Gutted multiplayer functionality. I don't know how Turn 10 have the audacity to use the word Motorsport in the title anymore. FM2/3/4 run circles around FM5.
    * No multiplayer replays kills online league racing, drifting and many other types of community activity
    * Matchmaking doesn't work. I've not been in a hopper with more than 4 people.
    * No custom public lobbies
    * Still no fixable aero
    * Damage is now nothing or 100%. Pitcrew can fix an engine in 10 seconds, but not change your tyres.
    * Can't invite friends of friends
    * No playground modes

    Then we get to the DLC. I've already coughed up £429 for a console, and £60 for an incomplete game. They now want me to buy the cars I got free in FM4 back for £7.99 a pack, and there's microtransactions all over place for shortcutting to the expensive/rare cars. It's greed, bordering on robbery especially after charging a premium price for a game with half the content.

    Forza 5 has so much potential. The graphics, sound and physics are excellent. The (reduced) content is of excellent quality. The simple, easy stuff that worked just fine and makes the community therefore helps extend the game life and perhaps sell more (reasonably) priced DLC has just been broken for no good reason, and covered up in all the pre-launch coverage.

    So much potential, badly squandered for greed and to meet someone elses hardware launch deadline.

    Sad, Forza 4 was awesome and Forza 5 is just a watered down version of it. No auction house, can't sell cars back, slow interface. MicroSad, Forza 4 was awesome and Forza 5 is just a watered down version of it. No auction house, can't sell cars back, slow interface. Micro transactions are for free cell phone apps not $60 Xbox games, if you want to put hundreds of dollars in "add ons" into your game, then the game itself better be free. Very few tracks, very few cars in the game itself, Forza used to be about giving the full experience. Now it's about developers playing who can screw people out of the most money and still have a popular game. The graphics are great, it's more like a movie than a game. Lost a lot of handling realism too, I would buy Forza 4 again, not Forza 5. Overall they seem to have run out of ideas, if that is the case don't release new games until there's a reason to. Sad to see company's get big and stop developing but raising costs. Just not that happy with the game. Expand
