    Forza Horizon 5 is the roadtrip holiday I’ve really needed after two years in and out of COVID-induced lockdowns. It brings me great solace to be behind the wheel, covering hundreds of kilometers of distance across an awe-inspiring piece of Earth. And even when I’m careening through the mud on a cross-country race, crashing into strangers on the internet, my mind is in an untroubled, fulfilling place. In 2021, Forza Horizon 5 is where I want to be.

    Forza Horizon 5 is the best game in the series and the best Xbox Series X/S game to date. Its flawless racing and wealth of activities are backed up by a gorgeous setting and a fantastic new progression system which encourages players to focus on the features they enjoy most. Utterly essential.

    Forza Horizon 5 accomplishes that which so many franchises try again, and again, but fail to do so: get better with each and every entry. Playground Games and Turn 10 Studio's magnificent display brings about one of the best racing games of all time to Microsoft. Is this 2021's GOTY?

    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is absolutely a masterpiece. Beautiful graphics, awesome gameplay, interesting stories. Imo it's the best game of it's generation.

    Also, for those kids that are giving 0s and 1s, we know you didn't played the game, we know you are just a Playstation fanboy that didn't accept the fact that xbox has one of the best game franchises. Also, we know you watched some Playstation fanatic youtuber saying s*** about this game, and are raiding this game's review because you feel envyous about this game not being present on your Playstation

    Calla game, Forza Horizon 2/3/4 on a new map, the game lags, crashes, eats a lot of RAM and video memory, produces graphic artifacts in theCalla game, Forza Horizon 2/3/4 on a new map, the game lags, crashes, eats a lot of RAM and video memory, produces graphic artifacts in the form of edging of colored pixels around vegetation and other textures, black roads and black ground, incomprehensible black reflections on roads, the game is unstable, that is, optimization for the PC (most of them) was hammered. Terrible online, on which, in principle, the whole game is tied, disconnects and few players in sessions who, moreover, disappear. Bugs in Bouncer mode. Most of the cars migrated from FH2 / 3 with terrible low-poly bottoms of pixel quality, SUVs, even new products in FH5, have horribly drawn car bottoms, the wheels turn by an unknown mechanism, the suspension is generally wooden and made for show, the wheels spin separately from the entire suspension, that's what I say as a certified auto mechanic who understands how it works, let's take the SnowRunner as a comparison, there is an amazing drawing of the suspension and its work.

    Игра калл, Forza Horizon 2/3/4 на новой карте, игра лагает, вылетает, жрёт очень много оперативной и видеопамяти, выдает графические артефакты в виде окантовки цветных пикселов вокруг растительности и других текстур, черные дороги и черная земля,непонятные черные отражения на дорогах, игра работает нестабильно, т.е на оптимизацию для ПК ( большинства ) забили. Ужасный онлайн, на котором в принципе завязана вся игра, дисконнекты и мало игроков в сессиях которые к тому же пропадают. Баги в режиме Вышибала. Большинство машин перекочевали из FH2/3 с ужасными низкополигональными днищами пиксельного качества, у внедорожников, даже у новинок в FH5 ужасно прорисованные днища машин, колеса поворачиваются неведомым механизмом, подвеска вообще деревянная и сделана для галочки, колеса крутятся отдельно от всей подвески, это я говорю как дипломированный автомеханик, который понимает как это работает, возьмем в сравнение тот же SnowRunner, там потрясающая прорисовка подвески и её работа.
