[Review] Forza Motorsport 7 – Exquisite Cars, Dynamic Racing

The Good
Beautiful graphics
Unparalleled car collection
Dynamic race environments
The Bad
AI could be better

Forza is back with it 7th edition in its Motorsports series with 30 track environments and over 700 cars  – now the largest collection of Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Porsches in a video game.

Forza Motorsport 7 brings you on a journey to achieve the Forza drivers cup where you must earn series points to unlock stages of the career. Turn 10 have included some one race events where you race exotic cars to keep things interesting.

With Clarkson and the bunch no longer with Top Gear, they have got a few delightful characters – one of them being Ken Block… which makes sense since you get his Hoonigan cars in the game.

I must say, what Turn 10 have done with the graphics is just as monumental as the car list. The dynamic race weather looks fantastic and the sunsets look simply amazing. Wet races are even more strenuous as puddles are never at the same place as the previous lap. Night races are still as much fun as before. However take care to not damage your headlights.

You still get a wide array of options in game and now selected cars have wide body kits like the ones we’ve seen in the Horizon edition, as well as some very interesting driver gears which range from full on racing suits to leather jackets with face masks.

With the introduction of Car Collection Points, gone are the days where you can go in straight and get behind the wheel of your most beloved. It’s been split to common, uncommon, rare, super rare and legendary tier.

This means you have to buy cars at lower tiers and accumulate car collection points before getting the good stuff. It doesn’t take long though. Going through the career mode will get you to the legendary tier by the end. You can still go to free play and rent the cars you want use, but tuning and customization has to wait till you unlock the car’s tier level and purchase them.

While Forza Motorsport 7 is a solid game, It isn’t perfect. The driver AI still feels clunky at times and just hinders the overall game play. Hopefully Turn 10 patches it soon.

Prize crates have reached an all-time low in my opinion as you hardly get proper goodies in comparison to the amount of game credits you need to use to purchase them.

For those who have pre-ordered the VIP edition of Forza Motorsport 7, I understand that some of you might feel irritated as they have recently changed the description on the Xbox store – you will not be getting 100% credit bonuses throughout the entire game but a mod which you can use just  25 times.

You will still get the Day One car pack, which includes the Hoonigan and Fast and Furious car packs. At least we still have the monthly car packs to look forward to as well and I’m sure I’m not the only one hoping to see a Bugatti Chiron, Lamborghini Performante or a Nismo GTR. I know that will put a smile back on our faces.

Forza Motorsport 7 is available worldwide on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs in 3 editions:

  • Standard Edition – This edition features the full version of the game running at a silky-smooth 60 frames per second. Players can collect over 700 Forzavista™ cars including the largest assortment of Ferraris, Porsches, and Lamborghinis in any racing game. With over 30 world-famous environments and tracks featuring dynamic weather and race conditions that change every time you return to the track; no two races are the same.
