    Several small issues with the game

    Most of Forza 6 career is just not fun. It is frustrating. Although the speedometer says you are going fast around corners, it feels slow. The tires on most of the cars lack grip. It is frustrating in the lower classes. They got rid of some good tracks, like the flowing Mugello, Suzuka, etc. and replaced them with tracks like Yas Marina - which is frustratingly tight in some places with long straights. Even the good tracks such as Road America have these insanely tight chicanes (mimicking real-life) slowing down the fun. Combine that with 24 cars on the track at once,and it is a crash-fest. The drivatars (which mimic real-life players) are DUMB. I can easily win in the rain on the hardest difficulty on Silverstone because all of them crash out, but it is virtually impossible to win against them on some tracks. There is a problem with the #1 guy running away from the field, but the game developer has yet to address the issue. They also hit the brakes in the strangest places, like on a straight or on oval tracks, so it's virtually impossible to have any close racing. I cannot comment on multiplayer since I haven't been online yet. Now for the good: The game is gorgeous! The sounds are awesome. The rumbling V8s and the shrieking Ferraris all raise the fun factor. There are some gems in here such as racing against the Stig in similar cars. Also, some of the old F1 cars and some old muscle cars are a lot of fun. I've spent several hours just admiring the cars and sounds, and taking some rare crs which I will never own, for a spin. I think it would be a perfect game if I had a wheel with force-feedback, plus a simulator cockpit to mimic real-life on the track. But a lot of us play with a controller on the couch with the TV screen several feet away. Trying to mimic real cars on real tracks with realistic physics just doesn't work for me. If you play like me - with a controller on the couch, turn down the difficulty (the Pro setting is decent and you will win most races usually on the last corner of the last lap), check out the Forza forums and download some tunes for your cars. If you are a real car nut like me, I highly recommend this game. If you are a casual gamer, then there are too many little problems for this game to be much fun for you.

    Forza has done it again!

    Forza has done it again! Seriously, this game is just unbelievable. There are so many pieces that add to the greatness of this game. The graphics is the first piece we will examine here. One would be remiss to not speak about the impeccable graphics in this game. The paint shines the lighting is crazy good and the water, oh the water. You have never seen water effects as good as you will in this game. The rain hitting your windshield and the track is just wonderful. It streaks up your windshield, and your wipers send it over to the left. There are times you would swear they just filmed rain coming down and then put it in the game. So great! Also the puddles on the track are hyper realistic. If just one of your tires happens to hit a puddle, you will be doing some realistic sliding. Also, the lighting on the tracks are so believable. It is a shame you cannot change the time of day on the tracks, but they are so beautiful it really won’t matter much to you. Some of the tracks have a perfect representation of daylight, others have pitch black courses lit only by your headlights, and yet others are lit up by the artificial speedway flood lights. All are impressive. Speaking of impressive, Forza continues to amaze with the line-up of cars. This time the number of different cars clocks in at over 400. Wow. Pretty much any car you can think of old and new are here. Let us not forget that each and every car can be examined in and out and under the hood. It is like taking a virtual tour in the best auto museum in the history of man! And all of the cars are customizable! Online multiplayer is here and it works smooth as silk. Also, the developer should be congratulated in the fact that they are one of the few racing games left with multiplayer split screen races allowing you to race another driver sitting right next to you on the couch. All in all, it doesn’t feel like an oversell to say that this is the best racing game out there. If you are a fan of the genre you will know instantly that there is not a better more realistic or more fun racer that Forza 6. Do not miss this one!

    Time for the Honest Review from a Forza vet.

    Been playing Forza in the series since 2 and been following every game since in the series especially usually buying Collectors editions as well. Forza has been taking a massive decline in content and features meanwhile the overall physics have vastly improved including tires physics. Forza 4 was the honest benchmark of the best in the series with the most cars, tracks, and features. Forza 5 was one of the biggest disappointments in the entire series. Now onto Forza 6 where the new one is now out. We didn't even get a Steelbook collectors edition? You get a little Day one DLC card and whoop dee doo. Anyways, No more wonderful Clarkson announcer to make you feel petrolhead love. There's no more community storefront of decals, vinyls, car designs, tunes etc. There's no top gear soccer There's no porsche There's no fujimi kaido, maple valley, or New York City race tracks. Some of the best tracks in the series. Nighttime and Weather tracks are EXTREMELY limited and can't even be played in splitscreen multiplayer. Further shafting you, if you HAVE friends....Bad enough they removed the LAN play feature. Car numbers have gone up and are much better then 5 but compared to 4 still very low.... Turn 10 still keeps delivering HALF a game and makes you buy the rest with DLC. Just wait til this game is on sale or do what I do and enjoy Gamers club discount + Best buy rewards. I ended up getting it for $30 after GCU + $20 in rewards points. Either that or play patient and wait for a sale which Best buy is usually amazing for. Regardless of all the B.S. still plays very well. Physics are amazing, car sounds are wonderful. A+

    Awsome race simulator

    First I have to say I'm not the greatest when it comes to racing simulators. The game itself is very easy to follow once you get through the introduction. From that point you start your career which is interspersed with some really cool side events. For example, after I completed the first section of races (none of which I won) I opened a side event to race an Indy car at the Brickyard which was a blast. As you progress more events open for you to drive cars that you can't/won't buy until later. As far as buying the cars, all cars can be purchased using the credits you earn & through prize spins each time you level up. All of my prize spins have been very generous. I purchased the digital deluxe edition through Xbox One. I got a better bunch of cars to start off, plus I received the 2016 Ford GT for doing the demo. I was also gifted cars for having played Forza 5 & Horizon 2. You can set the game up to match your skill level. As I said earlier I'm not very good so this helps me. Even though I'm not good, I love this game. The controls are smooth and the graphics are beautiful. The selection of tracks and cars is awesome. Most tracks have more than 1 variation - some have as many as 5 variations. Customizing your cars is only limited by your imagination. Plus, there are plenty of user created designs you can use for your cars. The multiplayer is way too challenging for me, but I do race online. The online community is generally accepting of less skillful drivers like me. In fact, the guys I've raced with have been very helpful with tips so I can get better. Bottom line is if you like driving cars or racing games you won't go wrong with Forza 6.

    Definitely a step up from Forza 5...

    Forza Motorsport 6 is like a breath of fresh air, mixed with exhaust, oil, and nitrous, all inhaled while doing 250mph down a straight away, in the rain. To say this game is beautiful would be an understatement. It's simply a work of art, graphically speaking. But the gameplay is not to be ignored either. FM6 offers up some of the best racing I've enjoyed in a long time. Fans of FM4 will definitely enjoy this one as will fans of the Grand Turismo franchise. This latest version in the series offers up lots of little touches that make the boring progression in the past much more bearable. From challenges to dares, to modifications (using a card system much like the burn cards for you Titan Fall fans) you will find much to do here. If I had to have a complaint however, it's in the DLC. It's gotten worse and worse every year. When will developers realize that real gamers are growing weary of spending $60 on a game, only to then have to spend an additional $50 to come close to even owning the actual content they wanted in the first place? Don't get me wrong...I understand the cost of production and development more than most having spent years in design, but there comes a point when they need to realize they must do a better job at managing their development costs and pass something, anything off to the consumer for their loyalty. Fans of the series will find much to enjoy here, so in that this game is outstanding. You can still enjoy it without the DLC.

    A Great Racing Game For Everyone

    Forza 6 has something for everyone. A plethora of licensed cars, a long list of famous race tracks from all over the world, time trials, multiplayer, Forza drivatars and liveries are just some of the features of this game. The game's strength is the ability to appeal to casual fans and hardcore racing fans alike by tweaking the Assists. Assists let you customize the game to suit your playstyle and skill level. There is a ton of content in this game that will take you many hours to complete. Probably, my biggest complaint about this game are the tokens. You can buy tokens for real money to buy in-game cars. Effectively, you can pay real money to play less of the game you bought. One doesn't have to buy these tokens but it feels slimy to include this feature that is ripped straight from a mobile game. The game sounds and looks amazing. Forza 6 does a great job of immersing you in a race and giving you a real sense of speed. Overall, this game is fantastic. If you love racing and cars, Forza Motorsport 6 is a game you will love spending time with, just steer clear of the Tokens.

    Wow.. Is all i have to say. I have been a huge fan of racing games since i was a kid and forza motorsport 6 blew me away. The first thing i noticed was the realism of the game. On my HDTV, Bose Surround Sound, and Monster Cable HDMI setup this game is absolutely breathtaking. It is so realistic that my friends actually laugh when they watch me play because it is so impressive. Playing this game on a non-HDTV would be like having a BMW without the engine, it's a must. The career mode is fantastic. There are many different history races that teach you about racing throughout the years that really kept me engaged. I have usually had problems hitting a "burned out" mentality while playing racing games for awhile because they get so repetitive. With the new Forza, there are sooo many different aspects to the racing and extra features that i don't see that happening. There is also a HUGE variety of vehicles. I just with EA would let them use the rights to add Porsche into these games. As a huge racing game and just car fan in genera, the new Forza appeals to both audiences alike. What an INCREDIBLE game!

    A Mature, Polished Racing Sim

    I got my Xbox One just for this game and it was the right decision! I played Forza 4 and 3 before this and they were great on the 360. Forza 6 feels like a complete product. Can you say 1080P graphics at 60 FPS? Everything feels downright real and photorealistic especially the rain racing. The Free Spins for cars and Credits encourage you to advance the old fashion way by driving and winning. Gone are the micro transactions of Forza 5. All the cars are unlocked waiting for you to purchase or win them. If you are on the fence, I'd say go for it. you will NOT regret your purchase. Forza 5 was so bad that I never purchased it as it felt like a half baked demo. 6 complete changed that notion. It's got tons of cars and tracks. This is truly one of those few games you can use to show off the power of your Xbox One. I'm no fanboy. I have a PS4 as well. Sony has nothing that comes close to Forza 6 at the moment.
