It’s finally here, and Forza Motorsport 7 marks the 10th Forza title released in the Forza franchise. It is, I’m happy to say, the most complete offering in the Motorsport series so far. It builds on the foundation of Motorsport 5 and 6, adding more tracks, more cars, more wheels, driver gear and the gaming industry’s latest trend, loot crates. If you’ve enjoyed the previous Forza Motorsport games, the winning formula remains.
I’ve spent the past few days playing Forza Horizon 3, the sequel to my prior favorite racing game, Forza Horizon 2. The Forza Motorsport series has always been a great racing simulator, and undoubtedly the best current generation console option, but lacks the “fun factor” that an open world game offers.
Over the past few years, we’ve taken the opportunity to share our thoughts on a hand full of racing games and simulators. While we’re far from professional game reviewers, we are, first and foremost, car enthusiasts. That means we’ll take our automotive action however we can get it, and this time, that happens to be in the Dirt. This week, DiRT Rally hit store shelves, and ever since, we’ve struggled to put it down.
Well, that’s not entirely true.
