Features a gigantic garage of fully-customizable cars from a wide range of manufacturers, plenty of additional car packs for separate purchase, and stunning 4K graphics. You'll always be able to find other players to race against over Xbox Live.

Unparalleled car selection. Dozens of tracks. Looks gorgeous. Driving is as tight and focused as ever. Single player encourages players to experiment with new cars. Showcase races delivery plenty of extra variety.

The first key to Forza 7’s success is the control. The cars all feel ultra-assured, responding perfectly and predictably to control inputs, and allowing just the right amount of abuse. Sure-footed, careful cornering transitions seamlessly into a slide, breaks into an acre-long drift, and eventually hangs sideways before giving up on traction altogether.

Fantastically approachable, great to play on a controller and very adaptable for all needs and requirements. Huge selection of cars to choose from which all look, sound and feel different to each other. Excellent visuals for the most part. Specifically the look of the cars and the backdrops of each environment. Extensive career mode as well as a host of other content to keep you engaged.

Forza offers an accessible and satisfying experience in which almost anyone can get around a track and enjoy themselves thanks to the huge variety of assist options. There's a real skill gap still present though. Forza has always been designed to be quicker for those who know their car, know the track and can drive with fewer assists (especially the usage of manual and no ABS). Rewarding the user for challenging them self but also being accessible to many casual players is something not many track racers achieve at all.

What experts didn't like
Although the VIP and Car Pass add-ons are primarily for people who think 700 cars isn't enough, these add-ons are fairly pricey.

Twangy country-rock doesn't fit the look. Potential for scummy microtransactions.

With some long-ish load times and still-underwhelming visual damage in major crashes, one day it will be bettered, though it’s unlikely we’ll see that happen in this console generation.

Invasive loot boxes take away a previous feature in the game for gambling-style microtransactions. The new collector level ties into this by locking you out of higher tier cars until you've wasted credits on lower tier ones. Limited selection of 'environments' (tracks) with a number of them being limited to select conditions.

Forza 7's multiplayer, as it stands at least, is poor at best.
