    With gorgeous sound and visuals, immersive and expansive modes for single players, captivating multiplayer options, a rewarding economy, and a staggering amount of cars and tracks, Forza Motorsport 6 delivers a powerful racing experience. It single-handedly makes the Xbox One console appealing, and is a no-brainer “gotta have it” title for those that have Microsoft’s gaming machine in their homes.

    It was enough to outright bring me back into the racing fold. I found myself racing for hours, racking up credits, ferociously buying new cars to add to my garage, and cursing at my friend's Drivatars. Forza 6 is the new king of simulation racing.

    Like a big bucket of Hot Wheels brought to life, Forza Motorsport 6 is first-order car porn for the automobile obsessed but remains an accessible and exciting racer for those who just want to drive fast in something red with a horse logo on it.

    Forza Motorsport 6 is the best driving simulator on consoles, a new step for a franchise that constantly and eagerly aims to perfection.

    I must say, I'm not one for racing games, but Forza Motorsport 6 easily wins me over with the overall cars to choose from and easiness in picking it up and playing it.

    Simply a better game than Forza 5 and with a lot more content to boot, Forza Motorsport 6 is an endlessly playable racer that deserves a spot in your Xbox One collection.

    This is a true showcase for Xbox One in every area except the racing. Inconsistent difficulty, random payouts and way too many dull events seriously spoil the party.

    GOOD: Excellent graphics and car details, 60 fps, nice additions (like mods), new weathers are excellent additions, very good controls.
    BAD:

    Been playing forza since the 3rd installment and skipped the 5th. This was a game that I had to have so even though the steep price of $90 inBeen playing forza since the 3rd installment and skipped the 5th. This was a game that I had to have so even though the steep price of $90 in my country I still got it on the first day. I have about 30 hrs played so far

    My initial races were really fun and I felt amazing playing the game but eventually this feeling started evaporating when problems would appear during gameplay, especially after raising drivatar levels and progressing to more difficult levels.

    Game AI:
    The in game AI also called Drivatars have a lot of problems. Firstly the drivatars sometimes get extremely aggressive, they will hit you, knock you off the track, pit maneuver you and drive insanely. I've been playing racing games for 15 years and this is the first time I felt really frustrated at times because the AI would ruin the gameplay.
    Sometimes the drivatars will drive extremely aggressive and fast, they don't have to brake like you do so they get away with insane driving all over the road.
    There is also a major flaw in the AI when you raise the levels a bit where you can't catch the 1st and 2nd place car, on straight lines during the race they seem to install rocket boosters or something else because they speed up insanely fast.
    At one time I got extremely pissed because I tried everything in my abilities to catch up to the 1st car on multiple tries and it didn't work. On straight lines he would gain an insane lead on me. I got mad and bought the car he was using, and tuned it and still he was ahead of me on straights everytime. In the end he won the race 10 seconds before me and 30 seconds before the rest of the cars.
    You can read more on forza 6 forums because everyone has this problem.

    Rain driving is very fun, it is a huge challenge and you're constantly fighting with your car. The puddles (new addition) are amazing because you try avoiding them like a plague. Surprisingly the AI doesn't have any rain problems

    More Cons:
    Almost all cars oversteer
    Many car sounds are inaccurate
    your own car engine sound is very low volume.
    Some car interiors are wrong.
    Music is bland and boring
    No different types of races (rallies, offroad etc)
    No Jeremy Clarkson, current narrators are boring

    Good stuff:
    Tracks are amazing
    Amount of different vehicles
    Spin system (last 2 spins I won a veyron and laferrari)
    Background graphics are ok
    Fun racing when AI decides not to drive extremely aggressive

    It's worth a buy definitely.
