Forza Motorsport 6 is the definitive sim/circuit racing experience that is accessible to all levels of racers on the current generation of consoles.
First of many. :)
Loving this one so far.
Great score as always. This really is the best sim racer on the market today.
Good to see that Turn 10 hasn't rested on it's laurels and continues to push their series forward. Sure, the weather could have been adaptive, but given how some of the early vids I have seen look, I'll be happy to race in the rain and/or night on the tracks they have set up for doing so. Can't wait.
I agree. I think the next steps for them will be to include dynamic weather and a full day/night cycle.
A dynamic weather system and day night cycle are unrealistic unless you are doing a ridiculous amount of laps which 99% of people don't do. Nothing realistic about starting at 3 lap race during the day and ending at night and nothing realistic about the first lap of a race being beautiful and the 2nd lap being a monsoon just to have it clear up again on the third lap. It really just doesn't make any sense when it comes to these kinds of games unless they seriously up the default lap count.
@shloobmm3 I agree with regards to what happens during a race . Im speaking more in terms of choosing the time of day. Morning race, afternoon race..a race at dusk. That sort of thing. and intsesity of the weather. they are off to a cracking start in my books. And Everybody round here knows I a big forza guy. I have posted up some mean pics from my gallery.
I do wish you could choose any weather any track at any time of day but that wouldn't be dynamic. I am excited for next Tuesday that's all i can say.
I suppose it would be nice, but it's not really necessary. In RPGs I get it, but for racers it just takes up resources better spent elsewhere, imo.
Really unsure about how I feel concerning the mod packs. I really like Forza and they're beating Gran Turismo, but if I want any sort of arcade racer I'll go back to Need For Speed. Night and rain are nice additions but should have been in ages ago.
Luckily you can turn the mods off.
Turn 10 continues to show love to the racing genre and excels. Can't wait to play his game in a week.
Not sure how they do it but Turn 10 pumps out a better product than the last every single time. I wish all sequels were like that but so many times you see the 2nd, 3rd, 4th game in a franchise just absolutely tank. Not here!!
Yeah it seems that 5 was the only,"misstep", where it was kind of a lateral move from 4, aside from drivatars, and graphics. They were most certainly rushed to make launch, though. It appears as though this is the best iteration yet. You don't see that with the sixth installment in a franchise often, but I imagine it's a tad bit easier in racings games to do so than it is in story driven games.
Unsurprised by this score... Great series!
