    There is a ridiculous amount of cars to collect in Forza 7, including a host of never before seen vehicles. Each of which can be hurled around the truly impressive variety of tracks brought to life by stunning weather and time of day lighting effects. Plus, even if you’ve seen some of these cars and tracks before they’ve never looked or felt this good. Racing is exciting in Forza 7 and accessible at any skill level. If you were to strip away the visuals and leave behind the core mechanics of racing hundreds of cars across numerous tracks, Forza 7 is still one of the most well rounded and solid racers ever created.

    Forza Motorsport 7 provides the best mainline experience yet on the Xbox One. Forza 4 may still be the greatest overall entry thanks to its overly-generous nature of giving out cars and the in-game auction house, but Forza 7 comes very close to topping it. The car selection is outstanding and the core gameplay is better now than ever before – with immersion also topping out here thanks to the massive increases in graphical quality and overall sound design.

    With over 30 tracks, hundreds of impressively rendered cars, and a robust and option-rich single player campaign (not to mention endless single, one-off races), Forza 7 has to represent the current apex of the racing sim. While it isn't a decisive leap forward from Forza 6, neither is it a step back. The cars just get better looking, the handling more precise, and the overall experience more comprehensive and immersive. I can't wait to try it on the Xbox One X.

    Forza Motorsport 7 doesn't bring many innovations in terms of circuits or ambient conditions, but Turn 10 Studios has built a great game which will make Xbox One (standard or X) owners proud. The garage is huge, the handling is just amazing and the graphics are near reality.

    Fall time on planet Xbox brings with it the promise of virtual horsepower; and 2017 doesn't disappoint. Microsoft Studios contingency Turn 10 is back with the seventh installment in the "primary" franchise flavor, upping the stakes with a ludicrous car count and a new collector focused experience.

    An incredibly polished and satisfying racer.

    It truly bothers me that I had to spend half this review talking about loot crates and in-game economics. I would’ve much rather spent this space talking about the fantastic driving experience, the way the game can be tailored to any desired skill level with the bevy of options, the incredible car customization (when applicable), the beautiful graphics, the astounding attention to detail in the car models, and the sheer, unrelenting car-porn that Forza 7 provides. On the other hand, anyone who’s paid attention to this series already knows this — not much has changed, and the stuff that has changed like the VIP support, currency manipulation and the homologated career mode will leave longtime fans perplexed why this route was taken. Forza 7 is a fantastic driving title that can’t stop tripping over itself, and its majestic driving experience is overshadowed by a lack of new ideas and suspicious economic decisions.

I deliberately waited until now to render my verdict on Forza 7, thanks to a whole lot of misinformation and irrational hate floating around the web. I wanted to get the full experience for myself. After 2.5 years, what do I think? It's an absolute masterpiece, that's what. I've had more fun playing 7 than any other release in the main series, and that's really saying something, because I've enjoyed the heck out of all of them (even 5, which felt like it was 2/3rds of a game). There's a completely ridiculous amount of content in the game, and endlessly customizable ways to enjoy that content. Whether you're a casual driver or hardcore competitor, you'll be able to dig deep into Forza 7. What's not to love? Expand

    The VIP pass was a scam. Microsoft changed the description after the Ultimate edition was released. The text was vague until release and laterThe VIP pass was a scam. Microsoft changed the description after the Ultimate edition was released. The text was vague until release and later changed to say that there is no permanent Credit Boost but 25 boosts (single use). What a bad deal. I can’t refund it since I got a physical copy and used the code. Expand

    A good game that does to little to change up the formula. Great car and track count, but the dynamic weather is staged. Also hate the newA good game that does to little to change up the formula. Great car and track count, but the dynamic weather is staged. Also hate the new narrator and American approach to Motorsport, and I am an American. I miss the British voice over, the new guy really screws the experience up. Racing is just as good and more refined than FM6, and the new camera options modernize the game. They just need a stronger damage model and more exciting career mode.
    Also, hate the car collection tiers, they are just their to pad out the experience.

    Great game ruined by major bugs the developers won't fix. "Please wait while we make the fixes"... Almost one year later. Still broken.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. First...The New homologation idea is very good and necessary... but... Visual steering wheel lock to 90 degrees!! people playing with a steering wheel will suffer as I do, the worst virtual hands on wheel, look at the renault f1, the hand overlap the car!!! 1500000cr, Loot boxes!!!!!(they are testing us to implement this **** still no real racing rules, no qualify option, no dynamic Weather (it is scripted and for only a few tracks), no apex time, no difference for the car in front, WTF!!!! its a Racing Game! a motorSPORT! a full price one and it looks like a mobile game with all that random gamble cards and boxes, so why not make another serie, a Forza freemium, real racing 3 competitor, a game for all platforms, don´t screw the motorsport series and sorry but there are too much trucks, dirt cars and forza horizon cars, Limo!!! and in the seventh edition I expected more than a thousand cars, gran turismo 6 for PS3 got 1200, Forza 4 got 700 plus.
    I've played severe hours of all Forza motorsport, not horizon, since the first in the original xbox, I simply finished 1, 2 just 25%, 3 and 4 but I didn't played Forza since 4 that was a fully customizable game with no micro transaction (Forza 7 don't got now but there will be soon), no cards and no loot boxes and I ve bought the nurburgring DLC but I just can't believe people fall into that diabolical scheme and pay to win or to look better besides the game price, in this game you should be able to customize everything with no price, you cant customize your driver, for exemple, you need to buy or gamble with loot boxes, we should fight against gamble in this industry, the people who like games as a form of Art, creativity, Culture and entertainment don't support this kind of attitude from developers, we are educated and intelligent people who knows what we are consuming and we don't want any corporate policy to make any psychological game design to addict us and **** with our cognitive system, beyond this, The Price practices in Brazil, twice the price of F1 and project cars2 is unfair.
    Besides this annoying corporate scheme and ideological mislead from the original series, a MotorSPORT series it´s becoming a MOTORHORIZON series, The graphics are amazing, it performs good in the max setting in my PC, 4K 60fps is becoming a must for racing games, you gain a lot looking for the turn apex, 100 meters plaque and references on the horizon, the night transitions have amazing skyboxes and track lighting changes, the weather is good but don´t impress me and it is not dynamic but this is the best game to play in a gamepad, preferably the xbox one with rumble triggers, sensational for braking and acceleration feedback and there is no new generation game out there that you can play with a car you can buy or even with your own car.
    The presentations for the career is awesome, it improved a lot, still need some improvements, look the codemasters F1 series the best racing career ever with ambients and characters, rpg structure or even FIFA the journey with a great story line but in forza you still got ken block voice messages, story of other drivers, the graphic design for evething is amazing and the game design of the career is better than the past editions, for sure, excluding the inherent need for mods or loot boxes cards, pure gamble that leaves me to the question, I can´t understand, why the assists is no more a "MOD" to increase your earnings, because it should, you have to truly master the game and it is probably because they changed the system to allocate this microtransaction scheme, pay or gamble to win not play hard like a pro to win, why not the "mods" is your perfect curve, perfect pass, perfect drift, perfect draft, fastest lap, best sector, clean lap and if you bump each others cars, go out of the track, cut a curve, miss a gear, break too much, get passed you get a negative mod, that would be a motorsport series, go grab your filthy money on the horizon series.
    The best feature in forza games, for me, is the paint and apply decals, that changed nothing since forza 4, just added more community decals, it is not good but it still there and the way your design is offered for other players is rewarding because anyone can pick your design for a specific car without going to your front store and the game offer the option to give a like if you are using this design for some time, this is awesome, a incentive for creativity. The interesting and unique feature of Forza is to tune your car after hours of testing and setting up the differential, height, camber, wings and so on and them designing your car putting your mark, your signature, and go race on line. And the new homologation system is great because it brings the game more to the reality, the old system fits into the horizon series where you do crazy Scheisse, so there are people crying for nonsense cause, point for turn 10 when they bring the motorsport series to motorsport realit

It's a full priced triple A game where they push pre-ordering, vip passes, expansion passes, and now decided to add a crappy loot box system and extreme microtransactions ON TOP (not in place of where it would be in a FREEIUM game). This game is trash for this reason alone, this is another game to steer clear of and hurt the pockets of these greedy corporate d bags that have ruined a once fun hobby of mine.
