IGN: Forza Motorsport 4 Review

IGN Writes: Like the step up from FIFA 11 to FIFA 12, there's no going back to Forza 3 now. The changes and updates are too welcome and widespread. The improved visuals, the added cars on track, the wealth of new race types, the tweaked AI and closer racing, the ferocious sound and superior sense of speed, the even better livery editor, the lot. With Forza 4 Turn 10 has crafted a driving game like no other; it's hands-down this generation's premier racing simulator.

WOW, I cant wait to pick up this awesomeness! Another great exclusive for Xbox360!!!

By the reviewer scores, this game looks like the best racer of the 7th gen.. It will be refreshing to see it get GotY over some generic shooter like Modern Warfare 3 :D

EDIT: Did anyone notice that 3 sport simulation games FIFA 12, NBA 2K 12 and Forza 4 got 9.5 scores from IGN in just two weeks? No other games have got that score this year except for Portal 2. WOW, what a year for sports games!

I think it's a shame really because you have Forza missing essential racing features like Gravity gauge, Break Gauge, Throttle gauge fuel and tyre wear gauge and even lack of a Turbo gauge. Say what you will but this is what racing sim fans want. That's just my opinion, it doesn't deserve its score for a lack of fundamental features.

Writing "fact" after a deluded opinion does not automatically make it fact.
*for the lulz

I salute this team for what seem like an undying passion for cars.

This team consistently raises the bar from game to game. What they pulled off with Forza 3 seemed like a miracle with the development time they had to work with.

Forza 4 clearly solidifies this franchise amongst the elite in racing.

I've done alot of time abroad lately and started becoming a fan of Top Gear. I look forward to seeing what they did with license.

@buddymagoo. Both Forza 3 and Forza 4 have those "essential racing features". It's all in the telemetry display.

I like Forza more than GT.... fact.

xJumpManx2478d ago

GT5 was basically unplayable for me. Between the install time and horrendously long updates. The long load times between races was also a huge problem IMO. Basically GT5 I spent more time in loading screens than playing the game.

jidery2477d ago (Edited 2477d ago )

What's with all the GT5 bashing?

"You won't find 135 Nissans here"

"Every Car stands up to close inspection"

"It doesn't hide the bulk of its cars away, or make you jump through hoops to unlock tracks for general use. In free play you can drive any car on any track you want. It doesn't make you earn colors to paint your cars; it wants to create whatever you wish, when you wish. It doesn't stop you from buying cars you want to own because you haven't leveled up enough. If you've got the credits, the car is yours. There's still a deep, broad game here that you could play for years, but it's not being strangled by its own design."

Really IGN? You are going to go down that road?

byrnezy2477d ago

lol what do you expect from ign, at the end of the day if it plays like the demo it is not a sim, an therefore it fails as it claims to be a sim... so how it gets these scores is beyond me. I hope I am wrong though because I have paid in full

With the update for gt5 coming soon and now forza 4 it's heaven for us sim racing fans. Enjoy my fellow gamers competition means we get better games peace out enjoy


Who cares about disagrees as a gamer I know mny things PD need to improve in gt6 especially when it comes to online community features. I bought gt5 at launch and been long time gtf fan, and I will be the first to tell you it has some areas where it could improve big time. One thing gt5 did perfectly was SIM RACING ASPECT OF IT, the way it felt driving around was nailed down by PD and hopefully tuen 10 learned something from that because forza 3 was a mixture of arcade and sim while GT5 was all sim.

Say whats on your mind who cares about disagrees. I said it before and I will say it again GT5 helped make forza 4 a much better game and my hope is that forza 4 helps make the next GT a much better game. I would love to get the online features f forza in next gt and more community involvement would be great too

End of the day both series has it's place because they are both exclusives and both do some things great and in some areas they could improve on

Kon_Artist 2478d ago

non sense. your ganna get a ton of disagrees for saying that.

thehusbo2478d ago

Well said but obviously fanboys will disagree..

fei-hung2478d ago

I agree. very well said.

I have always said, Forza and GT and loved and hated for different reasons, meaning the game may have similar audiences but their seliing points are different.

With the Forza series, I have always bought it due to the customisation features and having the slightly more arcady feel physics.

GT I have bought for the in depth sim racing and content.

There is no point trying to justify this to trolls and fanboys as they don't care and until they mature they will never know the difference.

It is possible for both these games to co-exist at the sametime and push each other along so we gamers get more out of them in each iteration.

Bubbles for being a gamer.

despair2478d ago

kudos to Turn 10 for making what looks to be a great game. Now just to wait.
