    The best arcade races nowadays. But it is becoming clear that it's getting harder and harder to move the successful formula forward.

    Forza Horizon 5 proves that even the best games can get better. An unparalleled driving experience that also happens to be a graphical showcase like no other.

    Forza Horizon 5 is indeed the FAST & FURIOUSLY good and if you’re looking for a true next-gen racer, it’s finally arrived! And like Dom Toretto, Forza Horizon 5 lets you live your virtual life at a quarter mile at a time.

    Forza Horizon 5 caters to all skill levels and approaches, and with its staggering number of missions to complete, things to collect, and fast-paced gameplay, it's an experience that attempts many things and succeeds in all of them with style.

    With Forza Horizon 5, Playground doesn't shake up its arcade racing formula, but when it works so well, why change? Especially since Mexico in this episode offers undoubtedly the best map of the series, with an amazing variety of biomes and an attention to detail that borders on respect, especially on such a massive playing surface. FH5 is a title that manages to do everything it does with its hands in its pockets. Its also one of the most beautiful games of the current generation.

    It can’t match Forza Horizon 4 in terms of innovations, but Forza Horizon 5 introduces a more varied open-world structure in one of the most visually stunning experiences of this new console generation — perhaps ever.

Not too quick, not too long, and takesForza Horizon 5 is visually appealing and fun to play right from the start. The game feels well-paced. Not too quick, not too long, and takes around 40-50 hours to do mostly everything in single player. I dislike how quickly the game throws cars at you, specifically higher class / higher power cars which almost feels like you're being rushed through the game without earning it, but at the same time I appreciate some people like this.

    The car models are absolutely fantastic with great attention to detail and lots of variety. Customisation and tuning is lots of fun and very detailed, along with the paint shop and body kits. Sadly, the sounds I feel are very flat and lacklustre and leave a lot to be desired.

    Multi-player is almost entirely dysfunctional at the time of writing. Server connection drops, convoy and player ghosting, rubber banding, etc. Bitterly disappointing for a game which would be so much fun with friends.

    Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the game and would recommend it. Throw on some music in the background and you can lose a few hours in here easily. Though, don't expect to do any online cruising with your friends just yet.
