As far as IGN are concerned, PGR4 is the series all but perfected. With racers starting to head towards a more open-ended sandbox style of play, the days of these more linear, streamlined titles may well be numbered. The addition of bikes, stunning use of weather and a healthy career mode with tons of added circuits gives even long-time fans plenty of new content to sink their teeth into. While it may lack Forza's detailed customisation and in-depth simulation options, PGR4 is simply the more flat-out fun game. An impressive swansong for Bizarre's Project Gotham series indeed.
Overall score: 9.1/10
