Forza Motorsport Review - Heavy Metal Mercy | TechRaptor

Six years since the last entry, and in the wake of Forza Horizon taking the world by storm, Turn 10 has returned to reboot the Motorsport series, but is it a clean lap, or a crash out?

That to low for this game of quality

purple101256d ago

Yeh they do it for clicks. This is a 8/10 all day long.

What's new? It's the same thing each time. Same for GT. Don't understand the high scores for any racing game these days when they're basically copy paste at this point. Sports games are held to a standard, why not racers.

No racing game has amazed me as much as GT7 in VR. That is true next gen racing imo.

@Kakashi (kudos on name btw)
Well this one is literally a re-release of a old game.

"8/10 all day long"
Have you played it, to make such a definitive statement?

@S2
"No racing game has amazed me as much as GT7 in VR. That is true next gen racing imo."
Yeah, but it costs about $1,200-$1,300 to play it that way.

@theSoftware730
No it doesn't. Otherwise Forza costs $600 with taxes to play it in any way.

Strange way to look at a game.

darthv72255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

@S2, okay, so maybe 730 math was off. Let's break it down.

GT7 cost to play in VR2 (minimum) $400 (PS5 Digital), $550 (VR2), $70 (game) = $1020 (+tax)
GT7 cost to play in VR2 (maximum) $500 (PS5 Disc), $550 (VR2), $70 (game), $100* (wheel) = $1220 (+tax)
*Please note the wheel is optional and only added to the maximum as an example. It could be added to the minimum way to play as well and prices do vary from wheel to wheel.

FM8 cost to play (minimum) $300 (SS), $17 (1mo game pass) or $70 (game) = $317 or $370 (+tax)
FM8 cost to play (maximum) $500 (SX), $17 (1mo game pass) or $70 (game), $100+ (wheel) = $617 or $670 (+tax)
*Please note the wheel is optional and only added to the maximum as an example. It could be added to the minimum way to play as well and prices do vary from wheel to wheel.

I forgot to add in the cost of a TV on the FM8 side seeing as the VR2 is its own self contained screen. So the price of TV vary from brand and size. Lets say the average price is $300 so that will change the minimum and maximum prices to $600-700+ for SS and $900-1000+ for SX respectively.

@S2Killinit, you should try the good vr racing games on PC. GT7 was not very good graphically or otherwise compared to the PC racing VR scene.

fr0sty255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

Darth, don't forget the cost of the microtransactions which GT7 lacks... and you can't compare playing a racing game in VR with playing one on a flat screen... it is a totally different experience that doesn't just increase immersion, it actually makes you a better driver, as you can see in full 3D with depth perception down the track to more accurately judge incoming turns, etc.

You also aren't accurately representing the TV... PSVR2 has a HDR OLED screen, good luck finding a 120hz HDR OLED TV for $300... lol.

More accurately, to play Forza at the fidelity of PSVR2, you need a $500 console, a roughly $1000 OLED HDR TV (which still might not be able to do 120hz), $70+ for the game (unless you plan on only playing it for a month), plus the amount needed for microtransactions to actually unlock the full game... and you still don't get the 3D audio, haptic feedback, or the groundbreaking 3D VR experience. $1600+ for the Forza experience, $1120 for PSVR2 with GT7.

I guess Sony paid the dev to make this game look bad on xbox with low scoring

S2Killinit255d ago

Yeah and its N4G’s fault as well.

Vx_255d ago

I'm a PS/PC gamer, but I can also appreciate good games even though I'm not a racing game fan, from what I have seen this game is at least 8/10, you can smell BS reviews like this one from miles away,

Sonic1881255d ago

What's funny is that you want see that certain group commenting in this article because of the review score 😂

Rgbsquad254d ago

Troll reviewers will be troll reviewers

shadowT256d ago

most reviews have a good 80 score

ChasterMies255d ago

Most review scores are inflated. I not only welcome the low scores I encourage these “news” sites to give them. A perfectly decent game should be a 6/10.

Crows90255d ago

They should switch to a scale /5...this gets rid of score inflating.

PhillyDonJawn255d ago

Now that's something we can agree on Crows.

BrainSyphoned255d ago

Always one, till the places MS didn't send codes to get the game, then it's the many.

andy85255d ago

Yikes now that one's nonsense. Always one

Profchaos255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

And here's the ckickbait review the games fair reviews should range from around 7.5 to 9 the perfect 10 scores and low 5.5 scores clearly show 1 of 2 things strong bias or the reviewer sucks at or dislikes racing games
