A few years ago, Turn 10 decided to expand the Forza Motorsport brand by creating a more arcade spin off called Forza Horizon and developed by the British programmers of Playground Games.
Today we already reached the fourth chapter available from October 2 on Xbox One and PC and anticipating conclusions we immediately say that we are ready to bet, maybe with il paddy power promo code 2018 that you will like this game!
We are simply in front of a great racing game, a perfect blend of an extraordinary graphic engine and a completely scalable driving model in an open world full of weather effects and change of the four seasons with direct repercussions on road holding.
Forza Horizon 4 sets the gaming experience in a big slice of Britain with realistic cars and dynamic performances, effects on driving atmospheric conditions without forgetting the presence of the day and night cycle. There are also an infinite number of very different tests (classic races, speed tests, special performances, for example challenging unusual vehicles on the road, clandestine races, speed cameras, cross rallies and much more) both in closed circuits and in metropolitan traffic as well as in the countryside, where you can drive with no limits!
The result? A really successful alchemy, thanks to the customizable driving model and the freedom with which we will be able to tackle the proposed tracks in addition to the desire to increase our bank account (within the game of course) to enlarge our fleet of machinery that reaches almost 500 units.
Forza Horizon 4 is configured as an arcade racing game with veins of a simulation product. A true hybrid in which we will have to brake well in advance if we want to take the turns in the right way, taking also into consideration the different characteristics of the cars and the conditions of the asphalt. Just the different answers of the present cars are really phenomenal and realistic, giving us the pleasant taste of discovering all the automatisms of the case. Nothing revolutionary but undoubtedly we are at the height of fun with regards to this particular sub-genre of racing games. The fact that the damages are only aesthetic and have no effect on our performances sincerely did not bother us at all.
Turning to the visual aspect we can only continue to praise the title: on high-end PC as well as on Xbox One X, the game runs at 60 frames per second and more with a 1080p resolution with extraordinary weather and light effects as well as the quality of the texture and the details of the settings, without obviously forgetting an absolutely realistic physics for the racing that is currently at the top of every gaming platform.
Finally, as far as longevity is concerned, the career mode will make us spend many hours in front of the screen and obviously we could not miss a nice online multiplayer component with news and confirmations. In Forza Horizon 4 indeed seasonal leagues have been introduced and with classified competitions that you can face after a certain number of hours spent in single player, to which you must add also classified teams’ adventures and events called Forzathon Live that offer further competitions in co-op.
