    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.

Microsoft changed the description after the Ultimate edition was released.

The change to the VIP reward system is being FIXED - back to the usual 2x credits per race as before -, so I'm not as furiou anymore.

    The good: handling is the same (great), more cars than before (in fact it's almost like a Forza 6 + all DLC included and then some), new improved graphics and animations (some people don't like the camera shake, but I enjoy it).

    The not-so-good: they made UI changes that don't make any f***** sense. It's a PITA to test drive cars as you're tuning, and the full wide open test track is gone.

    The bad: loot crates. I don't mind them, tho. They're reasonably priced - at least the cheap ones -, and usually pay for themselves in one race, two at the most. I don't like how some cars are locked behind loot crates or whatever.

    Overall, a good solid iteration. It's Forza on steroids.

    Forza Motorsport 7 will be a flagship title once the Xbox One X console releases. Microsoft promise to deliver native 4k 60 frames per secondForza Motorsport 7 will be a flagship title once the Xbox One X console releases. Microsoft promise to deliver native 4k 60 frames per second and on PC they have delivered that. Even if you are restricted to 1080p though this is one beautiful looking game. Microsoft have done an amazing job in Optimising Forza Motorsport 7 on both console and PC. The tracks, familiar and new are crisp and detailed and some of the older tracks have received a massive face lift. That Microsoft keep delivering such well optimised games to PC really puts some developers/publishers to shame. It's not all good news on the visual side though I'm afraid as there are some things that caught my eye. First off are the trees. Some of them look terrible even when you're focused on the racing and doing over 100mp. On some of the desert tracks you get sand blowing across the road but the sand doesn't react at all to the passing cars and it just comes off as really fake. I've noticed a few of the flag waving spectators glitching out too. Pit stops are woeful as your car is tended to by a fleet of invisible workers who don't actually do anything to your car except magic on new tyres and repair damage. So yes whilst Forza Motorsport is stupendously gorgeous it's annoying to think that little things like this made it into the final code. Forza Motorsport 7 boasts a massive catalogue of vehicles to take to the track, 700+ vehicles all at your disposal when all is told and more on the way no doubt via DLC. The cars and other vehicles are beautiful to look at and there will be something that appeals to everyone. The issue I have here is that a large portion of them feel totally out of place in Forza Motorsport 7. There's a vast amount of off-road focused vehicles that frankly just shouldn't be in the game since there's no off-road racing. Racing them on the tracks just looks and feels wrong to me. It's almost like the final number of cars meant more than putting in cars that made sense. I also find myself gravitating towards the same cars I normally go for in each class too which does make me wonder if more could be done to encourage the use of less popular cars. Forza 7 offers players over 30 tracks in multiple configurations although it should be noted that most are familiar tracks ripped out of previous games. Like i said previously the tracks have received a face-lift and it's great to see Maple Valley and Suzuka return. I'm not a fan of the new Dubai track I must admit. I don't like the layout and i hate the confetti canons. It would be nice to have had more new tracks but the tracks that are in the game are beautiful to look at and a heap of fun to race around. The weather can totally change the flow of the race and it's been implemented very well. When all is said and done though the longer duration races fit the weather system perfectly and can make for some very interesting races. Forza 7 feels like the Forza games that came before in terms of handling. It’s not that its terrible but the cars often feel a bit twitchy to me. The biggest issue I have with the actual gameplay is the Drivatar system. It’s truly horrendous. AI will refuse to acknowledge your existence let alone your position on the track this will mean that until you get out in front you will be rammed over and over again. It’s a massive barrier to having a good fun experience, especially with the shorter races. I definitely had hoped to see improvements here but if anything the AI seems worse and dare I say it, a bit easy to beat once you manage to actually get past them. By far and away my biggest issue with Forza Motorsport 7 is the introduction and implementation of the loot box system and the changes they’ve made to the progression system in order to accommodate that. Forza 6 often felt like credits were thrown at you. Money was no object and cars were yours to buy. Forza Motorsport 7 though feels like a grind. Some cars are locked away so you cant purchase them until you reach a certain Collector score. Credit rewards feel lower than previous games too meaning you will be taking longer to build up funds to add the cars you want to your collection. You can speed up this process by using mods which reward you for completing certain tasks on track or for racing in rain for example but these are consumables that can only be used a limited number of times and rather than offer a challenge or introduce some fun gameplay element they are literally there to temporarily reduce the grind and encourage you to buy a loot box. Unfortunately Forza 7 just isn't that fun anymore. To make matters worse you can now customise your driver in a variety of outfits . To my absolute horror and disgust Forza Motorsport 7 will allow you to dress up your driver as a clown, a diver, a knight and a whole array of other ridiculous outfits that just shouldn’t be in this game. I want to like Forza 7 but it's taken a step back this year and is less of a sim than i would have liked. 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
