In a recent preview of Forza Motorsport, it is clear that Turn 10 Studios has crafted a solid racing simulation game that captures the essence of responsiveness, customization, and accessibility.
The preview focused on the Builders Cup Intro Series, which introduces three tracks and three cars to players. Each car, including the 2019 Subaru STI S209, 2018 Honda Civic Type R, and 2018 Ford Mustang GT, has its own unique handling characteristics. The customization options further enhance the driving experience, allowing players to make fine adjustments that truly impact the way the cars perform on the track.
From the beginning, Forza Motorsport offers various features to cater to different play styles. With a difficulty slider, multiple modes of play, training options, and real-time assist settings, players can tailor the game to their preferences. One particularly useful feature is the rewind button, which allows players to reset without leaving the track. This promotes experimentation and encourages players to improve their skills without the fear of making mistakes.
One standout feature of Forza Motorsport is its consistent 60 frames per second (fps) framerate on all platforms, including the Xbox Series S. This high framerate is essential for a racing sim and sets Forza Motorsport apart from many other AAA games that struggle to achieve the same level of smoothness. Turn 10 Studios prioritized responsiveness, resulting in a visually stunning game that plays beautifully.
Although there have been concerns about certain missing features, such as spectator mode, AI racing in multiplayer, and splitscreen, the solid foundation of Forza Motorsport's gameplay mechanics and customization options outweighs these omissions. The game is designed to be constantly updated with new content drops, making it a true live-service experience.
Overall, Forza Motorsport impresses with its attention to detail, striking the balance between customization and complexity, and delivering a visually stunning racing experience. Whether you're a seasoned racing game enthusiast or a newcomer to the genre, Forza Motorsport promises to provide hours of immersive gameplay.
