    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    The absolute best!

    To begin this review I'll start by saying that I'm going to cover four main topics of this game: Gameplay, audio, visual, and replay value. Gameplay: This game is hands down the BEST sim racer I've ever played. In comparison to Project Cars and previous Forza games this is the most improved and most accurate. Audio: The sounds of the vehicles are about as accurate as I could guess they are. I wouldn't know what 80% of these cars sound like in person. The music is still composed but, a HUGE improvement over FM5. Very ambient and ambitious during an ongoing race. Visual: Graphics wise? This game is spectacular. Although that's to be expected as technology advances. The cars look just like the real life counterparts. This is about as close as most people will ever get to these cars. Replay: This will only increase or decrease depending on how you feel about racing. If you have a passion for cars and enjoy racing then you'll surely get your $60 worth. However, if your the type of person that likes racing but enjoys more of the Need for Speed type, look elsewhere. My final verdict? 5/5 for fans of the series as well as sim addicts. 2/5 for the casual racer fan.

    I've been a Forza fan since Forza 3 but really didn't unleash its true power until Forza 4. Forza 6 is the real deal! If you're looking for a casual racing game where no real work is involved and your cars are already modified for certain races, I wouldn't recommend this game. To get the most out of Forza and really appreciate its capabilities you'll want to race with as much simulation settings as possible, for me the only setting I do not use for full simulation is the damage, I'm just not that good yet. I jumped from playing Forza 4 to Forza 6 and the difference is astounding. The graphics, the sound, the feel of a RWD car on a sweeping curve at 80+ MPH is exhilarating. One of the first races I played was a 7 lap race around the Indianapolis Brickyard in Indy cars and I have never felt that kind of rush with a video game, the slightest oversteer or braking error can ruin the race. I would highly recommend this game to anyone that loves cars, loves challenging race tracks, and wants a fantastic way to pass some time!

    This game is definitely an improvement over Forza 5. The handling of the cars seems to be a little more realistic in that if your setup is wrong, the car is not as uncontrollable as in the earlier games. It's a little easier to earn money to afford more cars and the addition of Mod packs adds an extra element of strategy to the game. I'm loving the tracks on this game. As an F1 fan, I appreciate the inclusion of Hockenheim this go 'round. The track interaction has also been improved. For instance, if you hit a tire wall it deforms and tracks can also be affected by weather. My only problem with the game is the steering for the open wheel cars is too "loose". This might be adjustable, but I haven't gotten to the point in the game where I'm using the exotics and high powered toys yet. If you're a racing fan, this game is a sure buy. There is enough variety in the game for non-racers to have a little fun with the special events. I say buy it.

    This is a racing simulator, so it is very different arcade racers like Forza Horizon and Burnout. Braking and cornering properly are essential for success, so lead-footed drivers might be frustrated initially. It takes patience and perseverance to win, but once you do, it is very rewarding. You receive a very steady stream of cars and credits, though I wish you would earn credits a bit faster to drive some of the better cars. The graphics are incredible, and the game always runs smoothly, even with the awesome weather effects and a good number of opponents on the track, The integration with Top Gear (voiceovers from the former hosts and the Test Track) is a very welcome addition for fans of the show. Many many cars are available, though quite a few are junkers that you would never want to drive. Still, a wide range is available for almost every taste. Great game for racing sim fans!

    Forza has always maintained an incredibly reliable racing sim experience. The details are incredible, vehicle controls are tight, variety of vehicle options is outstanding, and the racing environment can be tailored to fit an individuals desired experience. Aside from the perfection, the only downfall I have with this game, which does not truly effect the score I will give it, is the aspects relating to customization. If you like customizing cars and that is what you are looking for, probably want to venture down a different road such as Need For Speed. If you could fully customize your vehicles with aftermarket parts, this game would truly take the lead over every racing game to date. If you enjoy racing and vehicles this is a game that should not be left out of your digital library.

    I've played the majority of the racing sims available during the last 10 years so I have a lot of experience with them. For me Forza 6 is the best racing game I've ever played. They have mastered this version! The game is absolutely gorgeous, you can tell that this is truly a next-gen console game with optimized code and graphics for XB1. The physics and car feeling is excellent with every car feeling different and the way I would expect. The steering with the XB1 controller is finally perfected which has been a grip of mine in the past, this finally feels like it has a nice linear steering feel. The tracks are so detailed and there are so many of them to race. Career mode has been a thrill after 8+ hours and still excited to play more. I could go on and on....just buy it and love it.

    I skipped F5 and came from F4 so the graphics and night/rain mode is completely new to me. The reason why I did not give 5 stars is because some of the older tracks are missing and the newer tracks, some of the turns do not really fit 24 cars so there is a lot of crashing to make a corner. I still need to spend time on finding the perfect assist balance with Drivatar ability. I have to test different modes to get a balanced race. There are times where no matter what I do, I will not get first place because the Drivatar is that much faster. If I lower the skill of the other drivers too much, it will not be challenging to be fun, but if it is too difficult, the Career mode is stalled. I am using a regular controller and not a wheel, if that helps anyone with this review.

    I've been a huge fan of the Forza series since the start and when Forza 6 was announced at this years E3 I was excited to say the least. If you're not familiar with the series it is essentially a racing sim loaded with tracks, cars, and online play. It allows you to tweak nearly anything on your car you can think of from your gears to your vinyls. If you more of a fan of the arcade racing genre, or new to it, then no worries either. You can also set things to make them as realistic, or arcade like as you want. Like the past Forza 5, this also runs at a stunning 1080p, 60 fps but manages to look even better then before. From smaller visual goodie like mist, to all new rain, and night driving, this game simply must be played to be experienced.

    Amazing graphics, realistic scenery, thrill of racing. You can feel the intensity and authenticity of sports racing in this game. The main action takes place through a series of competitive events with 4-6 races in each. In the beginning of the game there is a pre-qualifying race, that you can clear by being one of the first three to arrive at the finish. Beware to not upgrade your car prematurely least it become ineligible for the qualifying race with no credits or tokens to spare to replace or downgrade it! There is also a free play mode where you can pick any track you want to race on. Great companion to Forza Horizon 3 which is more free-range and relaxing. Get them both!

    Its a beautiful game dont get me wrong and having 450+ cars right off the bat is fantastic. But, the fact that the game sucks with a wheel, the understeer and oversteer is so dramatic its insane. Hardly any exterior customizations, lack of tuning while in multiplayer lobbies... the list goes on. All of the things we as fans of the Forza community wanted for so long is still not here. The only thing that saw we wanted and added was night and rain driving. If your reading this and thinking wow hes really downing that game. No, im still putting hours into it cause its still fun to a point. But ill say this, when Assetto Corsa & Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo comes out Forza is really going to see less playing time for sure.

    This game puts you behind the wheel of a car from the get-go. Amazing car physics, colorful beautiful graphics and breath taking scenery make this game a must buy for racing fans. It starts slow, but it quickly builds up and you get points to purchase other cars, or upgrade an existing ones. The difficulty is very forgiving because you can tweak it to your level of experience. This game can be played by beginners and and experienced drivers alike. I have only touched the surface of this game. It has tons of game modes, on-line play, car customization to name a few. The replay value is extremely high. 1080p graphics and 60 frames per second make the driving experience one to no be missed.

    I don't play racing games too often, but I've played enough in the past few years to know that Forza 6 mops the floor with all of them, save for Dirt 2, Dirt 3 and Dirt Rally, but those are rally racers, not street. Forza 6 has tons of tracks, boatloads of vehicles, incredible and in-depth customization, tuning, is super fun, addicting and has realistic handling. As is expected from a sim. The game is jam-packed with content. From cars, to tracks, to events (limited time, VIP and otherwise), to liveries. It has it all. If you wanted to pick one racing game on Xbox, Forza 6 is the one.
