Microsoft’s answer to Gran Turismo sees its latest sequel become an Xbox One launch title, but does it reach top gear?
Hmm another 7....
locking out most of the content as DLC and still charging $60 is just wrong, it's to much to ask gamers to pay up to $100 for a complete game.
Especially after paying € 500 for the console.
Well considering n4g is the biggest Sony fanboy site going, 7 is great. Every other reviewer gave it 9's or close too.....
"Every other reviewer gave it 9's or close too….." No. There have been three or four 7s and 6.5 is the lowest as far as I know.
Im gonna run out and buy some popcorn...this is gonna be good! Xbox fans swore this game was a 9-10.
Karma is a bitch, trolling last week reviews lol
Still sits at 82 on Metacritic which is very respectable.
It has got heaps of 9's just wont get 90% on metacritic
barely holding on to 8
Majority of the sites have given 8/10, 9/10, 5/5, 4/5. Every gaming site isn't going to give a perfect score. If you had fifteen reviewers rate a game around a 6 and two rate it a 9, most likely the game is closer to a 6. But if you have fifteen reviewers rate a game closer to 9 and a couple at a 6 or 7, most likely closer to a 9. Majority of the Forza reviews have been positive. I think a lot of PSfanboys are upset that Knack was reviewed poorly and Killzone failed to receive 9's and barely got 8's.
the Forza situation is exactly like Killzone, it got many 9s and 8s
7 is a good score. To me a 7 stands for good. I hate this trend of 'oh my god, game got a 7, hahahahaha'. I've seen it so much recently and it is starting to get ridiculous. Ah good, the fanboys are already here disagreeing. Hurrah. 7 is a good score. Well worth buying.
I agree, 7 is "good" on a scale of 1-10. Regardless, don't rely too much on review scores people. YouTube is your friend when it comes to making your mind up about a game. Although i have to admit that the reviews themselves have created some doubt in my mind about this game, less content than the old games....and selling so much content as DLC is really bad.
It is not so much the scoring that bothers me. I buy games I want to buy, it is more the retards on here that will try and use a 7/10 as fanboy ammunition. It makes me sick.
The "modern day" review chart is as follows: 1-6 = sucks 7 = okay 8-9 = good 9.5-10 = great
You see I pay no attention to that scale as it is all kinds of wrong. 5 is average. 6 is above average. 7 is good. 8 is great. 9 exceptional. 10 should be a rarity for absolute masterpieces.
Hmmm, I swear Xbox fanboys were going crazy everytime a PS exclusive got a 7... wonder were they are now ?
Im here fella plenty of 9's nd 8's also brah
In fairness, so did KZSF but they seem to have fallen by the weyside.
Were busy reading all the 9/10, 10/10, 4/5, and 5/5's.
More like your ignoring the article when you see a 3/5 and 7/10's lol
Yet here you are, reading the 7/10 review, anyway. I'm certain you were one of Xbox fanboys saying a 7 was bad for Knack and Killzone. Is it okay, now that Forza's gotten a 7, too? Or will you dismiss this as a bad review?
Looks like this is gonna be the reviewed retail game for launch glad i got it pre ordered
I'm just waiting for Gran Turismo 6.
I'm just waiting for Mario Kart 8. :P
Both will be great
Oh, I'm pretty sure of that. Forza 5 is probably a good game, too. I was mostly joking. (Although I'm really waiting for Mario Kart 8)! :P
Yess!! Im so happy it scored low and that the game isnt that great. Take that Xbone fags muahahaha. If you feel like the above, you are not a true gamer. Btw I saw.many Xbone fans do this for Killzone and other ps4 titles
Great language, cause that's called for on a gaming site. Scored low? Maybe you need to check out the Knack reviews. Forza scored higher then KZ and Knack. This review was a 7, what about all the 8's, 9's and 10's it's received? Clearly based on your language your a moron.
"Clearly based on your language your a moron." Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.
You clearly are unable to read more than one sentence.
Its a great game its getting poor scores because of the money pinching with micro transactions, when are microsoft gonna learn, if they or any other company start gimping their titles content for money grabs fans wont buy it at all!!!!
This is the only second 7 I've seen. I'm sure we'll see more, realistically.
Nothing wrong with the game actually but it's just sad that FM5 just don't include enough stuff to make it must buy and to get higher review scores.
Why nobody talking about the major downgrade this game got since e3? This is crazy !!!!
