Forza Motorsport 5 Review: Around and Around We Go

Forza Motorsport 5 adds vistas that are beautiful and accompany a racing adventure that is the best in the series combined with the Xbox One. Despite being the best in the series, Forza Motorsport 5 did go through a graphic under haul since E3 which make it seem like it has been downgraded which is unfortunate. Regardless, the single-player campaign includes a decent number of circuits and where the racing simulation has a nice technical advancement for the series.

Forza Motorsport 5’s career has been revamped with a more limited car selection but one which puts more focus on realism, driver A.I. profiles, and progression. At its essence, it is the same Forza that most people have come to know – cars go around in a circle – but they do so with great prose. As you win races, you get enough credits to progress with certain vehicles through unlocks and an intense array of options that carry through as you get better cars. A.I. has gotten more realistic with driver profiles, and the controlling of the vehicles themselves feel more fluid with added weight distribution and enhanced tire physics. The Top Gear narrative adds a new level of TV realism to the whole thing. Despite that, the actual structure of the game is geared solely for racers who enjoy limited game mechanics of going around a circuit track and should be avoided for people seeking an open-world sandbox style racing adventure.

Forza Motorsport 5 features a comprehensive multiplayer which implements the single-player campaign in multiplayer with the same progression variety. It closely resembles the single-player which is a nice addition, but some races have their intermittent lags.

Forza Motorsport 5 is a definitive driving game with realism but one that has its share of problems. Regardless of this all, if you want a next-generation racing title, Forza Motorsport 5 is worth considering.
