Forza Motorsport 4 (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Great for online with friends
Disadvantages: Bit pricey at £40
Forza 4 is the latest game in the Forza series from turn 10. The game itself is a similar format to the last game with many extras such as in the season mode you choose the races and car class at each track you visit giving you so much more choice throughout the 10 season you play in.
The game has a newer, sharper look and feel to the way it drives the scenery and the feel of speed as you hurtle along at near 200mph the slightest touch of another racer or bump in the road to bad racing line in the corner and its off you go into the sand traps and most likely you will end up in a bad smash.
The game has a lot more cars to it in the last game and so far there seams to be a more aggressive tone to the game from the computer controlled races as they will try and pull moves on you to overtake and can be pressured into making mistakes and not just following a pre determined route as previous titles I remember and the early gran turismo games.
The online element has been improved greatly too seeing as you now can have up to 16players online which heading into the first corner has good and bad sides to it depending if you avoid the carnage that is normally customary.
Every track has had a graphics tweak that gives future games promise as the realism side is getting better and better and with the authentic sounds of the engine makes you feel right in the thick of it.
The cars which all have their own pro's and con's from the main attributes of Speed, Handling, Braking, Launch, Acceleration seam to be closer than ever rather than in forza 3 where there was always was a few premium cars to choose from and the mixture just got annoying as it was always the same few cars that you would pit your wits against.
The marketplace and the overpriced cars people sell is still there and the potential of the download market could be huge considering the sheer amount cars there have been over time.
There is a new top gear element to the game from football and a bowling theme and the famous top gear track which sadly does not make much of a multi player track but is amusing seeing as you can take the star in a reasonably priced car element from the show and race it around yourself with the usual forza leader boards to compete against everyone world wide on.
I have only played about 10hours on this game so can only give you my view on a small amount of the game itself but if you are like me and enjoy car racing games then this is a top of the list must for any serious gamer.
Summary: Good lifespan and great game
