What a complete joke of a review....

Pogmathoin1032d ago (Edited 1032d ago )

Why does it not follow your opinion? If you wrote a review, assuming your smart enough to complete a whole sentence, would you like it if someone called it a joke? The reviewer is a fan of Forza, what did you expect? Its his opinion.... He not entitled to one? Are rights reserved for fanboys?

Mysticstrummer, so it would be nice to come up with something other than an insult....

Lets go gunners... After you beat my team, Liverpool... Wtf was that performance against Man U?? Let me down.... I like Arsenal.... But that was disappointing....

Edit: digital, may well be true, but its still his opinion.... You have valid points, and said them well, no problems with that, better than 'what a joke'... Again this guy is a fan of Forza... Maybe cannot get enough, so of course he is delighted... But tired of seeing lame remarks which on this site score you bubbles, simply because its fashionable to knock anything Xbox....

Sm00thNinja1032d ago

A bubble to you good man well said!

lets_go_gunners1032d ago

Well said..A review is an opinion nothing more nothing less.

MysticStrummer1032d ago

The person you're berating has an opinion about the reviewer's opinion. Try to deal with that.

Imalwaysright1032d ago (Edited 1032d ago )

Opinion over something that is personal? I don't understand what gives people the right to tell someone what they should like or enjoy other than the complete lack of respect for that someone and his/her ability to come up with their own decisions and choices.

Nocando1032d ago

Well said indeed and bubs

blackmanone1032d ago (Edited 1032d ago )

He could be talking about the fact that it's half the game the last Forza was minus the shiny new graphics. I prefer Forza over GT, but when it loses half its content, a 9 is a joke of a score. The game is a solid 7, that's a B grade here in Canada and a worthy score, looking forward to the next one when all that lost content is returned.

@ Ps4beaver

Because it's a Xbox site obviously overlooking key flaws.

"Forza 5 is a huge step up from previous Forza titles"

Half the content of Forza 4, stripped out features from Forza 4. Is an incomplete game with missing content being re-sold for almost the original asking price. Really worth ignoring?

Volkama1031d ago

Yes it has less content. That's because they didn't go half-a*sed and add a bit of polish to the assets they already had. They laser-scanned the tracks, they re-modelled the cars. That's to their credit. Forza 5 looks like a strong foundation for the revamp of the series imo.

BUT Gamers don't care what went into it, the end result matters most so yes it's fair if people want to knock marks off I guess.

Should the score be penalised for content relative to Forza 4? Or as a title on it's own merit? Perhaps a score relative to other games on the market? All of the above really, but a score can't convey it all. Which is why the body of a review is more important than the number at the end.

Having said that, I wont buy it or recommend it while it's structured around micro-transactions. 2/10.

JasonKCK1031d ago

"Because it's a Xbox site obviously overlooking key flaws"

How is that any different than you looking for flaws?

SlapHappyJesus1032d ago (Edited 1032d ago )

While the first response went a little overboard, he had a point.
Just because the reviewer's opinion does not match your own, that doesn't make it any less accurate and it certainly doesn't make it a "joke".
If your opinion is that the Forza series isn't a good one, that's fine. That is your opinion.
Calling the review a joke because it doesn't fit your idea of a good game, however, is not.

Sm00thNinja1032d ago

Everything at PSN4G is a joke if it has anything to do with Xbox. It's pathetic... Anyways I have Forza Day One but stuck on Battlefield 4 on PS4 and Dead Rising to really dive into it. Still all the glowing reviews leave me optimistic despite the microtransaction model

JediDiah1032d ago

Is there a way to get all cars unlocked to really have fun at the beginning? I don't have alot of time to grind the whole game for them.

Sm00thNinja1032d ago

Forza is definitely a grinding game! Maybe buy the cars?

T21032d ago

Yes there is, you are in luck! for the low price of 100 dollars you can unlock some packs to get any car! /s

Of course no mention of these ridiculous transactions in this review
. It's all a surprise built in for thoSe who buy the game

Elit3Nick1032d ago

There is a glitch in free mode where you select a rental car, then after that you go to buy cars, choose the car you want to try, keep going until you get to the screen where it asks you if you want to pay with credits or tokens, then you cancel and you should have that car selected now. :)

T21032d ago

Sweet I fully support cheating microtransactions

JonnyBigBoss1032d ago

I'm in love with this game. I am already level 30 with over 100 races.

urwifeminder1032d ago
