OVERVIEW The latest release to the famous Forza lineup. Mixing unparalleled driving physics and amazing graphics with the already intense adrenaline rush from its exhilarating predecessors.
STORYLINE The storyline has nice originality with individual Cups like the driving categories from the older games, but with a fresh makeover. Race to win each cup, and become the best driver there is. Simple, but still amazing.
GAMEPLAY Forza Motorsport 7 has amazing gameplay, with breathtaking physics that puts it above all the other racing simulators. So realistic and sophisticated it has definitely earned the simulator category. Race in the rain, hit a puddle of water, and feel the scary truth of aquaplaning at 300km/h, all in the safety of your own home.
GRAPHICS The Xbox One does a decent job at rendering the highly detailed graphics using the advanced dynamic graphic rendering to keep a constant FPS. But play the game on a new Xbox One X or a beast of a PC, and watch the cars and road come to life. The tessellation is perfect running on the highest possible settings and still hitting a buttery smooth 100fps@1080p with ease on a GTX 1080 (Similar performance to an Xbox One X). Watch the perfect rendering of rain, sand, or leaves fly past you while maxing out your 1980s VW Beetle.
AUDIO Leave all the audio settings on Dynamic and listen to the sound of people working in a garage when in the menu. Listen to the car noises and music while you're running through the gears, and let the dynamic audio make you feel like your ambient surround is a race car. If you don't like all the unnecessary sounds, you can also turn them off in the audio settings.
This game is a little pricey, but if you're a rev-head, money doesn't matter. Forza Motorsport 7 is totally worth it.
*This game is an Xbox Play Anywhere game, so if you buy the digital version, you can play it both on Xbox and PC.
**This game on PC has amazing controller support. Also, Xbox Gold is not required to play online when using a PC.
***Warning, if playing on PC, this game is very RAM intensive, despite minimum playable specs, I recommend 12GB of PC RAM and 4GB of Video RAM. Also, AMD is not fully supported, and can have major trouble to get the game to start or have a smooth gaming experience. These are, however, under review, and fixes should be coming soon.
