Forza Horizon 4 is the latest installment in the franchise, and it continues to use some of the best features from previous games. The new game has an all new rendering engine that has been revamped and has taken racing simulation to a whole new level. Here are the top 10 reasons why Forza Horizon 4 is the best racing game available on Xbox.
If you are looking for an exciting street race, then this is the game for you. It doesn’t matter if you are going on a run or have a consistent driving routine. As long as you can take down the opponents and enjoy yourself you can get a good race going. The track is such that you never know what’s going to happen.
The driving model of the game is interesting. It offers a great variety of engine sounds but gives you one choice of which engine sound you like the most. This makes the game very diverse and offers a chance to choose which sounds work best. They can even be customised so that they are meant to mimic different events.
The main play area of the game is fantastic. You can place any race you want on any track you want, and you can even track your own progress through the game. This gives the game a bit of replay value. Of course you have the full game, so you have all the option to run races to your heart’s content.
The tracks themselves are massive. There are literally thousands of different layouts, and you can tweak them in any way you like. This means that you can make a track that suits the type of driving style you want, and then you can also make it challenging enough to require skill.
With this racing game there is always a simulation element. You can set up your car to perform certain types of manoeuvres. The setup options are simple, so it is easy to get your car in the right spot. The ability to set up the car as you go along is a brilliant feature that adds a new dimension to the game.
The game is split into various sub categories, which give the player plenty of choice when it comes to racing. Whether you want to play the circuit, or go for one of the many exotic locations, you can do it. The flexibility is one of the main drawcards here. The fact that you can choose the track, and then choose the track you want to race on.
The one downside to this racing game is that the graphics can sometimes be a little lackluster. The use of the most recent game technology definitely helps the graphics come across more authentic, but it can still look a little dated sometimes. Also there is no support for multiple monitors, but it can be worked around with two screen sharing. Overall, the high point of the game is the customization options, which are awesome.
