Forza Motorsport 5
fun for all
i never played foza before, there is a learning curve the game looks great 1080p 60fas im not big on racing games if you must have one get this one
Forza 5 is great but....
There are alot of cars that should already be in the game but are DLC like the Acura Rsx I think there getting a bit money hungry and the engine sounds are great but they sound more realistic in Forza 4 Forza fans should wait for a price drop unless you dont mind paying 120 bucks for the complete Forza 5 experience which is insane the DLC is worthless by the way the cars they gave out were supposed to be already on the gamelist the graphics are very good Forza Horizon 2 better have 500plus cars and tuning if not i might think twice before buying it Turn 10 dont let your Forza fans down
love the game. Buy it buy it buy it buy it. and then once you buy it play it play it play it play it
Wait For Price Drop
I bought this game new and wish i didn't. I would only suggest this game if you have the extra $60 to spend and want to play it for fun. I've only had the game for a week and already lost interest in it. There is no ranking system in competitions which makes it feel like no challenge. You get a gold medal for coming in 1-3 place, silver for 4-7, and bronze for 8-10 place.So there is no real challenge of coming in first. Payouts are around 5000. There is no level gifting, instead they give you 30000 and car affinity doesn't give you a discount on upgrades. There is a lack of cars from the amount that forza 4 had and when going to buy your car is not organized the way it is in 4 which i liked more. There is no weather or day to night races and there are less tracks so it gets boring after a while. I wouldn't recommend getting this game @ $60, wait until the price drops.
Very addictive for the Racing Fan
Very fun and addictive. Multiplayer is very fun even when playing with friends. A++++++++++++++++++++
Very dumb'ed down for non car hobbyist.
I wanted to start off by saying as a car guy that works on his own Camaro and Mustang out of his own garage. So I used to play Forza games since the 2nd one "way back when". I noticed that this series used to be as close to the action as a game could get on a track. Forza 4 was starting to get to me after they made it too easy for someone to just pick up a controller and still no nothing about tuning and adjusting cars. So as I always would I bought Forza 5 for the Xbox One and I can't believe how bad this game has got. This new "drivatar" system has completely destroyed the game for me. I can't make a single lap around the track without getting slammed for no reason. The AI has absolutely no knowledge of how to run a line in a close quarter track. The older games were based on actual racing. Now I feel as though every other racer on the track is a 5 year old that doesn't know how to race. The lack of cars and tracks is a huge issue. The selection of cars is very bad. All the Mustangs are now SVT or Shelby, 95% of reality owners just have the standard GT model which Forza 5 doesn't have. Plus I've been racing the same tracks over and over and over again in the career mode which won't change even if they do put out DLC.
Awesome graphics, Repetitive game play
Good fun in racing yet the same tracks over and over again. I lost interest after a couple of weeks. Load times are slow and tuning is tedious. Online play can be fun yet there is always someone who is faster and never seems to give up position. Wait for the price to drop!!!
Why not to get Forza 5
So to start off with I am a long term forza fan, I've played every single one besides that horizon. This game is really a 50/50 if you like it. I am apart of the #1 team on stats right now and as an aspect we all love it in a certain way. The cars are VERY lacking in size (about 130 total?) and about 15-20 manufactures. There are some good cars but not as many as forza is known to have. The physics are probably the best aspect of this game and how beautiful your cars look. The online the worst community I have ever had in a forza game. Most of the people that crash you are from horizon or need for speed. The tracks are also very lacking. Nurburg is not in the game! Maple Valley and Sunset are both taken out and I assume replaced by Prague and the Alps. Also gift cars, storefront, sharing tunes, auction are all removed from this game!
Overall this game is not what you would think. I would recommend that you wait a year or for the next forza!
Gold Painted Terd!
I've invested quite some time into this game. To break it down as quick as possible. The cars look amazing, handle great, lots of tuning options. That being said ... Lack of content is a unforgivable sin in my eyes, just as much as micro-transactions. Just over 200 cars and 14 tracks, no use of any day/night, snow/rain. The career is very repetitive and gets boring quick. Market place is way over priced, there is more options for micro transactions there as well. They can make up for in DLC you say. Should we really have to pay an additional $50 for a car pass? That is $110 on just the game and then the optional wheel for $400. The cars are gold, the rest is a terd.
Forza Motorsport 5 is a great racing game. Stunningly realistic graphics and physics, mixed with the Xbox One controller which feels like it was made for this game, any car enthusiast, racer (casual or simulation, both driving styles are in this game with the use of assists), or gamer in general would love this game. It lacks in cars, tracks, and a few missing features compared to past Forza Motorsports, but makes up for it everywhere else. I would recommend this game to anyone who has an Xbox One, or is considering getting an Xbox One.
