    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.

Ultimate Edition being crippled by VIP changes gives the game a 0, sadly. Fix this, Turn 10 and Microsoft! Really hope they learn their lesson and go back to the way it's always been.

    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

    Overall, this game is pretty much a polished version of FM6 with a few tracks brought back from FM4 and new cars. If it weren't for theOverall, this game is pretty much a polished version of FM6 with a few tracks brought back from FM4 and new cars. If it weren't for the produces lying about the dynamic weather, I would give this game a solid 10. But, they did. It doesn't get more dynamic than playing at different times during the day. At least you get to choose scenarios more in depth if you choose to race in the rain, but, again, not all tracks have the rain option, some don't even have night options. Overall, I would say the graphics are worth it on the Xbox One, so don't waste a couple thousand dollars on a brand new 4K TV and the Xbox One X. I enjoy the feeling of your car, and the danger is really there, as Turn 10 said. The wipers shake at high speeds, and so do the mirrors, but should they really shake on a 1932 Ford? You can see the gearshift move in certain cars (sometimes you won't be able to see it at all), and paddle shifters too, although the driver doesn't seem to touch them most of the time. Graphics and physics are improved, but from what the producers said, they should be better. The menu is too dark in my opinion, the soundtrack isn't great, and Forzavista isn't as good as it used to be. In my opinion, if you are waiting to use on the Xbox One X, don't waste your money. It's already great on whatever Xbox One you have. Again, this game deserves a solid 10, but the developers ruined it because the weather isn't dynamic, or it's only dynamic in Xbox One X. Producers need to stop improving features on newer consoles just to get you to spend money. Career mode is OK, but the collector tiers and the loot boxes are annoying. This game is very well made, but the producers decided to be greedy, as always, and get you to spend money. Expand

    Numerous perks and mods in a crate-based system. No points-earning incentives for not using any or all of the plentiful driver assistsNumerous perks and mods in a crate-based system. No points-earning incentives for not using any or all of the plentiful driver assists available. A bewildering array of driver clothing choices for a driver/avatar you never even see while racing. Severely undercooked homologation system to balance and group cars for racing. Very iimiting for car upgrades and tuning. No Class-based leaderboards, and very poor accessibility for homologation division leaderboards. Rivals mode, the best thing introduced to the series during its lifetime, hardly exists. Oh yeah, and the relentless march of microtransactions into a game that appears to actively discourage grinding through its very design. The game also hit the market with a gimped and temporary paid VIP status. The physics are marginally improved over FM6, as is wheel support. Some time-of-day tracking lighting is off though, particularly overcast and later afternoon renderings, which can be excessively murky. Expand

DLC is a part of gaming now yes, but this is seriously taking the piss. I've already spent $100 extra on a few measly cars for Forza 6 and Horizon 2, (not to mention several expansion packs!) now they want me to do it all over again in a rehash of what's already been released. How about no. Can hardly even see them in the garage anyway, the lighting has had bugger all thought put into it. Might be time to switch back to Gran Turismo I reckon Expand

The multiplayer is the worst in any racing game, no penalties, no matchmaking, the multiplayer is complete joke. Do not buy this game. Expand
