    Forza Horizon 4 is one of the most polished driving games ever made. The feeling, the amount of content, the spectacular open world and the unbelievable visuals are some pieces of this puzzle that match perfectly to form, all together, a true masterpiece that is perfect in almost every single aspect.

    Forza Horizon 4 is nothing short of fantastic. With a host of content, backed by a fantastic roster of cars that tread the fine line between arcade and simulation perfectly. While the amalgamated UK may be a little too pristine, not completely reflecting reality, it's such a stunning and enjoyable place to race around that any issues are washed away in the utter fun you're having. Forza Horizon 4 is, without a shadow of a doubt, the pinnacle of the series and arguably the best racing game you can buy.
  3. It incorporates elements of arcade driving, simulation racing, storytelling, exploration, discovery, collection and even role-playing in ways that few other racing franchises have even tried and none can match. If there's space for just one racing game on your shelf, Forza Horizon 4 is probably the one it ought to be.

    Forza Horizon 4 is beautiful and exhilarating, with seamless multiplayer, compelling progression, and more cars than you know what to do with.

    Even just as a racing game in general, it’s an absolute joy to play. No other racer comes close in terms of this level of polish – from the driving model to the freedom of customization, detailed open-world, and all-around gorgeous presentation. I fully agree with the final part of the game’s opening dialogue: Don’t go anywhere, Horizon is here to stay. At ease, ladies and gentlemen. The king has returned to his kingdom.

    Unless you're looking for a hardcore sim, Forza Horizon is still the best racing series around.

    A AAA game produced in 2018 with the backing of Microsoft simply should be far more technically sound than Forza Horizon 4 in its current state. And this perhaps is the greatest travesty for this otherwise brilliant game.

    This is one of the best games, let alone racing games, I have ever played. Don't tell PS4 that...

And just during a free demo I realized that it's one of the best racing games I played, if not THE best. Now I played about 15 hours and this game continues to impress me! I feel that developers really love cars and love their game, and it's a rare thing in AAA games now-days. Expand

Le jeu combine un magnifique monde ouvert, composé au final de quatre cartes distinctes (merci les saisons !), à une expérience de conduite gratifiante, qui ne cesse de se renouveler et que j'ai eu du mal à abandonner. Playground Games n'a pas fait que relever la barre encore plus haut, le studio anglais a roulé sur la concurrence ! Forza Horizon 4 est un jeu de course magnifique, gratifiant et à la conduite une nouvelle fois renouvelée. Expand

    Game great but very repetitive. To be honest, it could easily have been UK DLC for Horizon 3.

    Horizon 4 could easily be a 10/10 but it lacks social features and it's still a buggy mess from launch.

    Pros:
    - Game is on Game Pass, you don't have to spend $60 on this.
    -- I feel like every Forza game should be on Game Pass.
    - The seasons are pretty great, each have different races and set barn finds.

    Major flaws:
    - In your 'FH4 Group' that you join. There isn't a button in that tab that say's "Join group's session."
    - Buggy mess. Contacted developers on both forums and Twitter but issues aren't being fixed. They would rather fix in-game credit glitches then the actual game.
    -- Bugs? Crashes to desktop, lag spikes, freezes and more.
    - Limited songs on radio stations, after while, you hear the same song multiple times throughout a play session.

    The game itself is good, but the update 1.197.899.2 just bricked the game.
    Simply can't run a game I ran days ago smoothly. Crashes, no error

    Simply can't run a game I ran days ago smoothly. Crashes, no error message, nothing.

    Also, Microsoft Store is horrible. Had to download the full game 3 times due to download errors, and it looks my solution will be..... guess what, uninstall and download again.
