The Forza series of racing games has managed to prove itself to be one of the premier racing franchises out there. Its dedication to delivering some of the best racing action out there, along with a stunning attention to detail, leads fans to welcome it with open arms every single time. Until the last main entry, that is. Forza 5, while being a solid racer, left quite a sour taste in the mouths of many die-hard fans who felt slighted by the paltry (when compared to previous entries) offerings in terms of vehicles, and the micro-transactions that plagued its release. If you’re worried about Forza 6 following in the same footsteps, fret not. What you have here is pure racing heaven.
From the moment you find yourself behind the wheel, you can feel the pulse of the engine through the controller. You just know that soon, you’ll be racing through real world tracks at blistering speeds as you vie for the number one spot. As you pull on the right trigger and begin to accelerate, you will feel that telltale rumble that lets you know you are powerful, you are fast, and you will not back down. Taking each turn at breakneck speeds, overtaking your opponents, and battling it out in narrow raceways feels just as wonderfully beautiful as Forza 6 looks.
The game is absolutely stunning. Cars are painstakingly modeled after their real-world counterparts along with their stunning interiors to ensure that no matter which camera angle you choose to play in, you’ll be nothing short of mesmerized. The realistic damage to vehicles even has its very own tinge of unique beauty. So much so that you may find yourself purposely slamming into opponents just to see how everything will look when it’s all said and done. The fact that there are 450 customizable vehicles to work with means you’ll just find your draw jumping that much more often.
There’s a reason why the Forza franchise has become the powerhouse that it is, and Forza 6sets itself up to be undeniable proof that it is on a whole other level than most of its competition. Beautiful locales, gorgeous vehicles, breakneck speed, and some of the best adrenaline-inducing racing action out there means this is definitely one game to look forward to.
Luckily, you won’t have to look forward for too long since it is set to release on September 15 of this very year. So, are you looking forward to having your friends eat your dust in some all new, top-of-the-line vehicles? Do you find yourself constantly counting down the days until you can finally get back behind the wheel in one of the best racers out there? Let us know how you feel in the comments below.
