What experts liked
Forza 6 is gorgeous, too, boasting 1080p graphics and 60-frame-per-second movement, which makes for a very fast racing game.

While Forza Motorsport 6 has a nice, escalating sense of progression that offers a lot of in-career options as you move forward, some of the better presentational aspects of Forza 5 are gone.

Mods give players a reason to try out different difficulty options, as well as offering other tweaks on the game’s driving mechanics — both benefits like increased grip and impediments like increased weight.
- Game Rant
The path from start to finish is logically arranged to start you off with slower, more manageable cars before putting you behind speed demons like the 2017 Ford GT. It has a great flow to it, providing player choice to an effective degree.

Racing in the rain is one of the marquee new features for Forza 6, and after laughing at Turn 10's announcement of it and then saying, 'Yeah, but Driveclub has rain in it', some of us need to be eating our words. Rainy races in Forza 6 are incredible.

What experts didn't like
The menus in general are pretty lousy. They resemble the Xbox One's own irritating dashboard, or the Windows 8 layout, where everything looks like a McDonald's marquee menu.

Other problems persist as well. There's still no way to improve your starting position before a race.

The only problem with the night and rain implementation is the limited number of tracks that support them.
