by Jureidini Highest rated racing franchise of this generation.
Without feeding the trolls, here are my thoughts on FM4 . The graphics and details of each of Forzas expansive car models are second to none. Similar can be said for the sounds, even though not all cars sound equal. Physics I think are a perfect blend of "Sim and HARDCORE SIM", you will know what hardcore is if you have experience with iRacing. A strong point to this game is its massive and highly active online community. Need to find a car club, replica paint job (done to alarming accuracy) or even a Top Gear soccer match,...they are all accessible after a few button clicks. The online racing is well supported too with a variety of racing categories or even custom real world inspired league based around series such as Grand AM. I am a gamer, a hardcore console sim racer since the GT and FM franchises began and a dedicated car enthusiast and I consider this to be a racing franchise without equal. P.S......only downside is that Turn 10 has decided they need money on a monthly basis for new and diluted DLC, as such I knocked a point off long term ;)

Forza Motorsport 4 defines racing with premium graphics, the most realistic controls, the most interaction, and a community thats just amazing. The graphics are just undeniably good. The car looks just too real. When you get the cars on the track, the controls are very realistic. The controls are also customizable to suit anyone who picks up the controller, wether it is a hardcore racer or a kid just wanting to have some fun. Autovista mode is also revolutionary. It gives you audio descriptions of every square inch of the car. You can pop the hood, start the engine, and sit in the drivers seat. The merge with Forza and TopGear is also very cool. The track locations are also great. And with features such as the storefront, auction house, and car clubs, Forza 4 is unstoppable!! This is the best automotive play ground.

This game takes racing and experience to a whole new level! First, I will start with "Autovista", a feature that lets you walk around the car, sit inside, see the dashboard react as you start and rev the engine, open all doors, trunk, hood, and gives features about the car! The graphics are AMAZING, the best I've seen in any game to date! The community club features are great with being able to share a car with club members, so you can try a car before you buy. The marketplace "storefront" is everything I expected from Forza 3, nothing to new to the storefront, mainly the way it looks. The car list is somewhat smaller right now than Forza 3, BUT, a new car pack with ten cars each will drop every month from November 2011-April 2012, thus expanding the car selection, and also a season pass for $29.99 will get you six car packs versus paying 560 ms points per pack. More muscle cars, and exotic cars than ever before. This game is by far the BEST racing game I have ever seen or played. You can import your profile from Forza 3 to give you some start-up money and cars (depending on your level on Forza 3 and if your were a VIP on Forza 3), import files like vinyl groups, makes for less time in the paint shop making vinyls you already have. I own the LCE (Limited Collectors Edition) and I love it. Turn Ten raised the bar, yet again, with Forza 4. They really out did themselves and went above and beyond, what I expected in this game. *The Kinect features are for Autovista, quick shortcuts for upgrades, driving, and maneuvering through the menus. Though Kinect is not *required* but, it will enhance the experience on this game, with Autovista (being able to walk around the car lean toward the TV and get closer to the car you are looking at), say "upgrade" to access the upgrade menu via voice prompt. So it definitely enhances the experience a lot. I have not played the multiplayer yet, but I will once I'm done exploring all the other avenues of this game, so I'm not sure if it's like Forza 3 or if new features lie in the multiplayer. So much to put in this review, I could go on for days, and not a single flaw I have found yet! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GAME TO ANYONE WHO LOVES OR HAS A PASSION FOR CARS OR EVEN RACING!!! A must have for anyone who falls in the category above.

Ok why are gran turismo 5 people coming on here to write bad reviews and realistically this is a way better then GT5? With that said i own both GT5 and Forza 4 and there is nothing better on GT5. First off wow you get 1000 cars on GT5, but there are not all detailed in HD and most don't have a cockpit view. When I realized that I was mad I didn't buy GT5 used to get a refund. Forza 4 has about 500 cars and they are all good except the hatchbacks. The graphics are the best for a racing game. The gameplay is realistic and true. The sound of the engines are great if you have a good sound system...go to audio options and set the sound to the engines. I am not big on racing but this game is addicting. It seemed like it took too long to progress in GT5 and I lost interest in it. The only thing that is bad is the Kinect feature, but I don't like anything Kinect or Playstaytion Move. Final verdict is this is hands down the best racing game to date, and don't listen to the bad reviews from people that are mad because the only own a PS3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MRJAYinPA Best racing game to date.
Im not a Forza fanboy but I do give props when deserved. I was NOT really into Forza 3, I beat the game but Id still much rather play other racing games like Dirt, NFS, F1, etc. Well although Forza 4 may seem to be just like Forza 3, I feel its much better. They improved the already amazing graphics and tweaked the gameplay which was my biggest dislike about Forza 3. Also you earn a lot more money and quickly earn free parts for your cars which leads to having an amazing garage and tons of extra cash to buy cars. Sure they left out night time races and they didnt use any rain or snow in the game, but it leaves some room for improvement. I really hate to admit it but Forza has slaughtered every other racing game alive and is the best racing game to date. If you are thinking about buying this game download the demo and give it a try. From casual gamers to hardcore gamers everybody should have a copy of Forza 4.

I love forza, every aspect of it. I cant even guess how many hours ive played forza games, and i cant count how many more hours i will. The graphics are incredible, giving me a sense of actually being in the car driving it as im playing. Im immersed into a world, a racers paradise, of pure adrenaline and complete excitment. I love when the cars pull up to the starting grid, rev their engines, and the countdown begins. From the first second to the last, im in a trance, astounded by the realism of forza. And not even to mention the countless DLC packs turn 10 does an excellent job of creating to add to the cars in your garage. Its hard to put into words, so my best recommendation: play it for yourself! Live the expirience! I dont have kinect, so i cant even fathom how epic it must be to play with one. Forza brings life to the racing genre, and is in my top 5 favorite games of 2011!
Rated 8 out of 10 by ginkman Best racing game,but...
If you love cars and racing this is you're best option on any platform right now.Those returning to the series will immediately notice a more polished game.Better visual presentation and improved game play.Even a few new tracks and cars.The developers really did their homework.All is not perfect however.the omission of weather effects and night races seem all the more noticeable since they seem to appear in most modern racers.I noticed for myself and have heard comments from friends that unless you are a real beginner to racing games you have to turn off all the driving aids to be challenged in this game.I'm not quite sure why because the A.I is quite good,that's just how it seems.I'm also becoming annoyed at the" nickle and dimeing" dlc packs that add cars that should have been in the launch version of the game.I'd rather have new tracks or mods.I don't see this game as a sim (i think the gran turismo series does driving and visual representation much better) but as a racing game there's nothing else out there that blends car culture into a more cohesive and entertaining package.A must have.
Rated 10 out of 10 by TT327 BEST RACING GAME EVER! 10/10
This game is the best racing game I have ever played! The graphics are so realistic, the gameplay is great, the options are limitless, and is great for all types of players! You can choose from tons of cool cars, race on the most awesome tracks in the world, participate in the coolest challenges, and work your way up through the ranks! There are so many options, even before, after, or while your racing! You have your choice of the races you participate in, you can tune up your car to make it better, buy new cars from their very own marketplace. You can even make your own racing videos or pictures, add your own effects to them and share them with your friends! You can also rewind the game if you crash or make a mistake and start over from a checkpoint! This is one of the best games ever! I would highly recommend it to everyone! This is worth the $60-- you won't be dissapointed!

They've done it again.. WIth me being a huge forza fan, I was extremely excited for this to come out. I was hoping the seasons were not as long as forza 3 because after a while it just got boring.. I didn't know what to think when i found out there were 10 seasons.. I thought here we go again. But it wasn't nearly as bad except for the last 2 seasons which took a couple of days. The graphics are AMAZING. As well as the sounds; these things were to be expected. Gameplay is stunning. You can either keep your foot on the gas or drive as its real life. This game has so much more to do than forza 3, not that there wasn't a lot to do in that game.. This takes up so much of my time but its so worth it. Online play only makes the game last that much longer. And this game is good for anyone! This pawns gt5 any day. GET THIS GAME! You will not be dissapointed what so ever.
Rated 9 out of 10 by BlackEdge13 Best racing game ever.
Play how you want. Thats the story of this game. Play it like old school arcade racing games holding the gas down through every turn, or play it super simulation style like gran turismo. Solid graphics and sound. Many options through out the carreer mode. I found GT5s carreer mode too grindy with roadblocks, but in Forza 4, for each event theres like 3 different races to pick from, some change depending on what car your in, so if your having trouble beating a particular race, you can do one of the other 2 to progress on instead of just being stuck at that one. The customization tools are just astonishing too. You can make near photo realistic images of just about anything on your car. You can also sell said paint jobs for credits to other players, or flat out buy other cars or tuning setups. Hands down best racing game ever; bar none.
