To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love this game, tried getting it in feb 2020 from quebec seller & it Never arrived. ended up getting it from amazon.com with no issues a month or 2 ago. i am glad i bought the complete DLC package last year before i even owned a xbox one. the game runs very smooth & i like the differences between this & forza motorsport 7. would recommend this game & hope you can still get the DLC.
I've owned every Forza game that's been released and can say they keep getting better. Forza 6 adds many more tracks and weather, not to mention a wide variety of cars and the latest models. The night and rain races are fantastic; cars will hydroplane and react instantly, just as in real life.
Some high points: - Drivatars have drastically been improved and aren't nearly as idiotic as before. In F6, you're able to turn up or down their aggression, something that is useful. - The menu system is a little different than F5, however nothing that you won't get used to. - I can't speak much for multiplayer, but my limited experience has been positive. If someone near you collides with a wall or crashes, they become a ghost and you're able to pass through them safely. - Starts of races aren't nearly as clusters as in F5 - Tires react to track conditions and are stickier, much like real life
The best improvement Forza 6 brings is the addition of better music. The orchestral music from F5 was horrendous, not something anyone wanted to hear during intense moments in racing. While the new music is similar, it seems to have more of an upbeat house/trance melody.
My only complaints are that collisions all seem to make the exact same crunch sound no matter where the damage is, and it takes a substantially harder impact to damage car components, even when set to "Simulation." It's much less sensitive than Forza 5.
Bottom line: if you own an Xbox One and like racing games, this is the game for you. If you were happy with Forza 5, this game will still bring a smile to your face. Rainy tracks are exciting and challenging.
I use this game with the Thrustmaster TX racing wheel and pedals. The flow of the game through career mode is great. You can still manually configure cars very specifically in your garage, and tune/adjust the car as well prior to a race which is great. The selection of road courses is good as well. The many variations of artificial intelligence in opposing drivers is the best in the series so far, and the various difficulty/training aids you can toggle prior to each race is superb. The integration with the steering wheel is also very good. The only negative I have found is it has become clear why races aren't held in the rain. This game has racing in the rain, and where water pools on the track, the track is unusable in turns. Probably accurate with reality, but since races are cancelled in the "real world" during rain, with a simulation racing series and trying to be true to reality, why force us to race in the rain when its not reality? You can adjust and turn it down a notch, adjust your racing line, and still do well, but it isn't true to realistic racing. The different special events and unique races are all great as well. Well worth the money with this game, and no in game purchases required.
I suppose I should have started here instead of owning Forza Horizon 4 before this one. Although Horizon 4 teaches and condones "cheating", the intuitive setup of the cars and the graphics are much better. I guess I became spoiled. Nonetheless, it is an interesting game with decent graphics and fun cars. Again, it is a SHAME that Horizon 4 has so much cheating, as it could be so much more enjoyable and competitive if they had penalties for cheating instead of teaching it, and condoning it. Maybe 6 will grow on me with time, I have go to try and get the Thrustmaster wheel set up better - maybe that will change my mind. If it does, I will come back and give another review, but for now, I am pretty disappointed. Everyone have fun racing !!
