What a complete joke of a review....
Pogmathoin  +   224d ago | Well said
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....

Well said..A review is an opinion nothing more nothing less.
MysticStrummer  +   224d ago
The person you're berating has an opinion about the reviewer's opinion. Try to deal with that.
Imalwaysright  +   224d 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.

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?

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.

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

How is that any different than you looking for flaws?
SlapHappyJesus  +   224d 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.

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
JediDiah  +   224d 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.
Sm00thNinja  +   224d ago
Forza is definitely a grinding game! Maybe buy the cars?
T2  +   224d 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
Elit3Nick  +   224d 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. :)

Sweet I fully support cheating microtransactions
cyberninja  +   224d ago
Pfft...
JonnyBigBoss  +   224d ago
I'm in love with this game. I am already level 30 with over 100 races.
urwifeminder  +   224d ago
Agreed just hit level 73 have 2 mill cash never connected with a forza as much as this one been with the series from the start.
JediDiah  +   224d ago
@Sm00thNinja I see car packs to buy but somthing tells me it's a bait and switch tactic...I could be wrong.
Sm00thNinja  +   224d ago
I mean if you want the cars you're gonna have to pay rather than grind to earn them? Bait and Switch? This isn't a car dealership lol you're gonna have to make compromises my friend. Money or Time?

batbatz  +   224d ago
9/10 with all the micro transactions and grind?, I guess if you're stupid enough to buy the XBone in the first place

OK

Forza 4 trumps Forza 5.

Forza 5 might honestly deserve a 9 or better if Turn 10 didnt cut out a bunch of shit from 4. But get your money out and dole out the cash for content cut from Forza 4 and the rest of the microtransaction bullshit.

"omg with all this content coming, more cars to buy, more tracks to buy, more features to buy, mo money mo money mo money is yours M$ and Turn10. Forza 5 still gets better and better omgvrooomvrooomomg 11/10 and other racers choke and stuck in the mud, while Forza 5 drifts in the powaaaaaaa of daaaah cl0udz!!" - some nitwit with shit for brains in the near future.
