    It's getting better, but...

    Allow me to first say, I have played Forza games since Forza Motorsport 2, so I've been through almost all of the evolutions the series has gone through (and all 3 Horizon games too). I also don't know what the length is capped to, but I'm gonna write some new stuff first and copy/paste my first impressions after 12 hours of play at the bottom. I'm gonna get the negatives out of the way first, starting with the big one, HOMOLOGATION! The TL;DR of homologation is, specific upgrade levels (not just PI limits anymore) a car can have to keep racing closer and fairer. Sadly, it's a bit too forced, and a PITA to work around just so you can race your vehicle that doesn't qualify for homologation rules anymore. The same rewards system is there that has been in the past few, each level, you can get a car at a significant discount, but this time you can choose 50k credits (at max) or driver suits (and eventually mod packs) instead. If you buy a car from the dealer, you can choose it to be stock or homologated, but if you "win" (buy) a car from the level up, it's homologated by default. The game features loot crates, which is also controversial, but currently can only be bought with in-game credits, still gambling, but not with real money... yet. There are also a plethora of visual bugs that can really be bothersome, just knowing they're there has distracted me from driving a few times. Mostly, it's suspension not working, tires not turning, and in one case, a massively oversized rear spoiler (call me a hypocrite, but, that one is great, I hope it doesn't get fixed). Finally, the game is really laggy when it comes to certain things, mostly scrolling through your cars. It's still a single make at a time, but you can spam through with your bumpers. You can also change your car while preparing for a race and see it in the pits, but the game wants to immediately load every car, so it gets REALLY slow. I've said this about most games in succession, when the physics get revamped, feels like more rubber is meeting the road. Well, it's more of the same, but that's a good thing. I use Forza 4 as a benchmark, because it was the most advanced for the prior console generation, and Forza 7 is about par with 4 in terms of advancements and such. It's also much easier to control the cars and use SIM steering, they'll still fishtail, but it's much easier to control them. The tuning is the same, parts are the same, PI system is changed again (but ultimately doesn't matter going through most of the game, with the exception of free/private lobbies). The sounds are also great too. --------- First impressions after 12ish hours below Good: The vehicle sounds are nice, seem a little richer when they're not glitching out (will be talked about later), the driving physics are also really nice, I find myself being able to hold onto and recover cars from slides a lot easier with SIM steering than past Motorsport games, and cars don't fight and lose against bumps and curbs as much. The assortment of cars and tracks is really nice, bringing back some old favorites on both fronts, and the paths to earning some of them is both kinda cool and annoying. Brings back the old days of having to earn and unlock cars. Saving up was still a little challenge, but now we got multiple tiers to work through. The game may have some long-ish loading times, depending on the cars and environment I guess, but I REALLY like that you can do things while the game is loading, AND IT DOESN'T BOOT YOU OUT WHEN IT'S READY! It patiently waits for you to finish tuning your car, selecting your mods, etc. and then it says "alright sir or madam, your race is ready" and in you go. Bad: The audio, when at certain noisy points of the track (ambient things like fireworks), or when surrounded by a lot of cars at full throttle, likes to get REALLY choppy and cut out, and it is really disorienting. The amount of visual problems with vehicles is astounding. I've driven about... lets say 30~ cars so far... the BR-Z FE is missing its side mirrors in 3rd person cam, but they're there in 1st person and in the pits before a race, the RJ Anderson truck has very little suspension travel and front wheels don't turn, the Land Rover Series III's suspension doesn't work on the right side only, and the front wheels don't turn. The Toyota Baja truck has the suspension travel of a typical street car, so you frequently see light under the wheels. How does this even happen? I'm scared to drive the rest of the cars I've collected on my trek to level 32. The drivatars, although haven't had a chance to learn much yet, act like you don't exist. They'll shove you off the track, run into you, slam on the brakes for no reason right in front of you, and this is with aggression turned OFF. Hybrid of bad/why: When you select and use 3 mods fully, they disappear, and you're stuck at that screen for like 15 seconds. If you use 2 and there's 1 remaining, doesn't freeze, only when you use all 3 (or possibly use a single one fully, haven't tried only 1). Can't restart from a race, you have to quit and go back in. Why: The shopping cart system didn't make it into the game. Everything defaulting to homologation unless bought directly. Not being able to actively tune your cars in free play. Having to jump through many hoops to test drive your car. Launching the game with the horrible new VIP system, which they have since addressed, but going through with that idea was very *omitted* stupid, even for Turn10. Joining a multiplayer lobby and being thrown out of the party unwillingly. All and all, I'd say like 5/10, probably the worst one to come out in terms of quality, especially being the SEVENTH Motorsport game in the series. Also, a personal gripe, they still haven't fixed the angled cockpit camera. Looking forward, you're looking down. Looking left and right, your camera is tilted forward like 15 degrees, and looking back, you are staring at the sky. As a final note, wait for price to drop or get it on sale, don't pay full price, they don't deserve it for this quality.

    Great game but disappointed a little

    Have loved Forza going all the way back to Forza 2 (my first Forza.) Missed the series after buying PS4 but when I bought my Xbox last year I skipped Forza 6 and bought Horizon. Was going to buy Forza 6 but downloaded free version of Project Cars instead and that kept me satisfied until Forza 7 came out. Horizon is now at the top of my list and after playing Project Cars I was hesitant on buying PC2 as I figured Forza would make me not want to play it. Bottom line is I'm glad I bought Project Cars 2 as Forza 7 online is horrible. It is by far the worse online and if Forza 8 doesn't have a "drastic" improvement I'll just keep 7 and skip 8 ( I will be buying Horizon 4.) I also own Dirt 4, F1 2017, and Nascar Heat 2. Forza 7 could easily top them all by far with better online. I have played through all of Forza 7, beat every race, etc. so not like I didn't get my money's worth. If you don't mind not having online then this game is awesome. I could care less about all the playing for avatar costumes, etc. and the stupid gambling but that doesn't take away from the game as it appears to do for some. I didn't glitch out for money and I had enough money to buy the cars I wanted but then again I have a lot of hours in the game. For online not being able to have a custom lobby is terrible. Forza suffers from probably one of the worse online communities as everyone seems to want to run you off the road if you dare pass them. No game is perfect but the licensing model in PC2 is nice. Also having a qualifying event so you can start in front of all the idiots is nice. F1 2017 has this as well as PC2. But again if you don't race online ever then this game is pretty darn good. I still use it to practice certain tracks that I race with Project Cars 2 so I have access to a rewind function. On another note I did see my Xbox S and replace with an Xbox X so the graphics are pretty awesome in this game on the X (were awesome on the S also.)

    Beautiful 4k, gameplay issues & microtransactions

    This was the first game I got for the XBOX One X to play on my new 4k projector. First, it is stunning in 4k. The actual racing in the game is as good as ever, but the limitations on how you can play are incredibly frustrating. If you have ever played the previous Forza games, then you know about the race classes and how that works. You buy a car and start racing it in the class that it is in. You can upgrade the car, but as you do the race class increases and so the cars that you race against get better as well. You can buy one car and slowly upgrade it and race it in 3-4 different classes. In Forza 7, Turn 10 made a baffling decision to just throw that out the window. Now, the class that your car is in when it is new from the factory is firm... in other words, if you buy a car in the C class, you can never race it above the C class. Oh, you can upgrade it to your hearts content, but you can never actually take advantage of that by racing it in upgraded classes - why even have the option to upgrade the car if you can only drive it in free play rather than in race series? You almost need a different car for each race series. Perhaps there is a way around this, but I have not found it as of yet, and I am not the only person who has complained about these short comings. The hope is that Turn 10 will release some updates that fix this stupidity, but we will see. Due to these issues, I have hardly played what is otherwise an amazing game with tons of potential. Turn 10, please fix this! One other thing, the attempt to get micro transactions is insanely annoying. I realize it seems that all games are going that route, but I hate it. I am not going to buy the game and then spend another $20 to get 15 more cars.

    Great Forza game as usual

    Wonderful game, and as usual Forza gets a lot right in the fun category. If you are looking for exact detail with everything being perfect, this is not the game for you. If you like having fun, awesome graphics, and sound and don't need to measure suspension travel or what mirror is where, buy it and have fun. No, its not perfect, but its plenty fun. Dirt 2 and Dirt 4, Forza 6 and 7 are all great games and worth owning. Dirt games are a lot more realistic and more difficult due to track surface conditions always changing from Dirt, gravel, snow, ice, asphalt etc. But the beauty of the Forza games is you can turn driver assist options on and off for younger or inexperienced players and have a lot more fun. It is a must for Xbox X on a 4K TV to truly get all the enjoyment out of this game you can. The graphics and sound are beyond incredible and if your TV is only 60HZ you may have some blur problems ..I think this game runs at 120FPS

    The graphics are amazing. This is literally the only good part of the game. To even have a CHANCE to buy another car, you have to use random outcome things, and even then you have to level up within. Also, they put something called "auto homoligation". This means no matter what you upgrade or tune your car, it is automatically outfitted to match the other cars in the race. This "feature" is also present in multiplayer, so there's no way to race with your cars. The AI is stupid in that: the first corner of every race, there's an accident leading to a pile-up of cars. Do yourself a favor and don't buy this. WASTE of money. Try Forza 6 or Project Cars 2 - both games I have thoroughly enjoyed.

    Forza 7 looks and plays exceptionally well on the Xbox One X console. 4K visuals are stunning. Forza 6 just didn't do it for me, but the visuals, controls, car selections, tracks, music, and new cockpit view in Forza 7 makes me want to explore the game in solo and multiplayer modes. I can't believe how detailed some of the game play is. Racing in an open cockpit car with 24 cars jockeying for postions and shooting flames out their exhaust it just amazing. I like the game progression and aware system much better as well. You rewards which include cars, money, gear, its your choice. No more spinning for a reward and crossing your fingers like Forza 6. Don't forget to open the Forza Hub and collect in game cash rewards, and check your messages everyday to get cash rewards earned by your Avatar. Have fun!

    This is by far the most enjoyable game though much is locked and through you need to play the game first to unlock the more expensive sought after cars in higher tiers.. Opt for ultimate edition much more cars and vip benefits include exclusive vehicles, mods and 100% credits bonus.. And though there's even more cars locked until the game is beat 2x, even more for rivals, forzathon you will not find these in crates or level up tiers make sure you cross referance any cars available to get and insure they will be there should you choose to take driver gear or the $ at that time. Turn tcs, stability management and abs off for most fun

    Just not the same

    Posted
    Greg

    Homologation ruins what made Forza special: buying an M5 early on and building and tuning it until you're consistently beating AI Ferraris and Lambos. So many cars that there's no desire to drive one once you obtain it, and many of the special ones are locked behind loot crates and weekly events. For more serious complaints, the driving feels more numb than it ever has, FM6 felt much better, and to be honest, this game has driven me more toward the Project Cars series, which seems to be made by developers that still have something left to prove. The Forza series is just a money grab, and this will almost certainly be my last game until something changes. I bought the ultimate edition at launch and haven't touched it since November.

    Was told this is, at the moment purchased, the only Xbox game made specifically with the Xbox One X capabilities in mind. Supposedly plays at 60htz, not sure if it does, and even with purchase of the actually physical game disk, still needed to download a Ton before being able to play, but once it downloaded... OMG!! Graphics are so realistic, sometimes find myself playing one round not caring about winning, but just to look at the scenery. Cars and track look so so realistic. A blast to play, does take a bit of time to load, even once saved on the HDrive, but well worth the wait. Word of caution, if you have a slow download speed, can take a LONG time and a ton of room on the harddrive.

    New to sims but not race cars. Heard a lot of put downs about this title that I don't agree with now that I have spent some time with it. Does it feel as good driving in this as some of the other titles? Not exactly, but real close. Close enough to make it feel like you braked to hard, or got on the gas to quick. So much to do in this one, whether you want to play, collect, trade, car bowling(yes,really), broadcast, whatever. The graphics and detail are outstanding and on par or better than others. You should be able to find something in here you like. From just having fun to getting serious, it's here. Is it as good at getting serious as some other titles? No, but again very close and ooohhhhh the fun.

    This game is great and fun if your into cars you need to buy cars to unlock cars the goal is to have all 700+ cars the races can be short or long some races in the career will take 8-10 hours to do if you have it set to a very long race in free mod you can do up to 1000 laps after an update witch means you can do 1000 laps at a 16.15 mile track witch will take 160+ hours to do i wish they would add snow to the game but that is about it buy this one do not buy the $100 one because it is not worth it the 2 dlc's so far were not good however if you want to make money faster you can get the vip dlc witch gives doable money on every race and a few more things great game for hours and hours of fun

    We bought our 14 year old son an X-Box One Forza for Christmas and he decided to buy the Forza Motorsports 7 also. Like the Forza that came with the X-Box, Forza 7 is incredibly realistic. He has the steering wheel, pedals and gear shift, but even with just the hand-held controls, the cars' maneuvering, sound effects, and scenery are incredibly awesome. Forza 7 comes with a huge variety of cars to race and you can choose to race on ACTUAL tracks from all over the world. What is amazing is the accuracy of the race tracks' detail. If you know any of the courses, the details are phenomenally accurate! How do they do that??! If you like racing, don't hesitate on Forza 7.

    I spent over 500 dollars just so I can play this game. Me being a diehard racing fan I had no choice but to upgrade my 360 to a x along side my ps4 pro since gt sport and project cars was not satisfying with there lack of car selection and no visible car damage on gt sport. Forza 7 has plenty of cars that I feel like looking at in forzavista and driving in stunning 4k 60fps! Great job turn 10 studios! It's been awhile since my last xbox360 copy. I hope other x box exclusives can look and play as good as this game to help further justify me purchasing the x box x when I have a ps4 pro that's playing just fine.

    One of the reasons I stopped playing Forza was that if you'd played the first one, you'd played them all. I stopped playing at Forza 4 and came back for this one. It's the same old game... Buy a PS4 and get Gran Turismo. GT has completely changed the way they do things there and it's very refreshing. I will say that the graphics on this game are great for some of the tracks. Others still look cartoon like. Am I jonesing to play this game? No. Would I buy it again? No. Is it a fun game? It's fine, especially if you've never played Forza but if you have, I wouldn't waste your money.

    it is very fun, different from Grand Turismo that I use to play on the ps2 back in the days. great line up of cars too. It does take getting used to in the single player game. What i don't like are the additional in game fees to unlock some of the cars. I payed for the game and now they want to nickle and dime to get the full benifits? whatever happened to games that unlocked specials cars and such due to good game performance and not the wallet? Overall I recommend it. I haven't tried online multiplayer with it just yet.

    Really good graphics, but the game is almost too technical for some people. It is not easy to just pickup and play. If you want that arcade style pickup and play look elsewhere. It does have a nice split screen vs race mode though. If you are into technical details of racing, this is a MUST HAVE. The online play is a nice touch, but a few people have quit while losing on me. Still a very solid race game, with a ton of options, cars, upgrades, and race styles, plus the graphics are truly amazing.

    I switched to Forza 7 from almost a decade of Gran Turismo. While the graphics and car selection seemed better, the controller dynamics are horrible. I use the controller rather than a gaming steering wheel - despite adjusting the settings, I cannot control the vehicle with near the precision that I was able to with the PS3 and Gran Turismo. If you plan on using Forza with a steering wheel setup, this probably doesn't apply. However, because of this I do not enjoy Forza as much as Gran Turismo.

    Admittedly, I have always been a big fan of the Forza series. They always have excellent graphics and are very accessible to all players. Forza 7 pushes the bar even further, especially when utilizing the power of the Xbox One X. If you want a game to show off, you could do a whole lot worse. While I have to say I like Forza Horizon 3 just a little bit better due to the locale and structure, Forza 7 comes in a very, very close second. Even if you're not a huge racing game enthusiast, it's still worth checking out.

    Great 4K and HDR @ 60fps! Really great showpiece racer for the new X1X. However, 1 star deducted because there is very little "new" here - most of the tracks and cars have been in every previous version of Forza. While they're still very good, it just feels very familiar. However, as a "Forza fan", I don't mind, but it would be great to have 10-12 NEW tracks to race, not just 1 or 2. Other than that nitpick, the game is excellent. Tons of cars, tons of options and old tracks, great MP.

    I have only scratched the surface of the game. But it looks amazing on Xbox one X on a 4K TV. Lots of car options tracks and customization. Almost to many options but for any auto enthusiast this game has so much to offer. Good thing is this game has real cars that exist in real world. The rumble of the controller makes this game even more immersive. I do not own a wheel peripheral but I bet this game is sick with one!
