Forza Horizon 4 Single player Review:

Wow festival-goers no matter the weather in the latest instalment of the Forza Horizon series.

Forza Horizon Single player:

The challenge with many racing games is to bring something new to the table, racing games such as Gran Turismo and need for speed underground managed that all those years ago by adding full customization of your car, not just the looks of the car, but the body, engine, brakes wheels and much more.

In this Forza Horizon 4 Review we will be looking at how they have attempted to push the genre to the next level with new features such as stunt driving and seasonal weather effects.

Seasons:

If you drive in real life, and like me live in England, you will know very well there is a difference in driving in rain compared to normal driving conditions. Well Forza Horizon 4 have brought that challenge into the game with the festival running all year long and in all weather conditions. It adds some new challenges to the game, making it much more interesting and meaning you need to stock up on vehicles to handle these environments.

Or you can just be like me and be the idiot driving in the snow in a Toyota Supra, bombing it around the town at 120 miles per hour skidding all over the shop.

Snow isn’t the only challenge though, I found Autumn (Fall for y’all over the pond) to be the biggest challenge, with floods and muddy tracks the off-road challenges, were… Well challenging.

Events & stunts:

There are several events built into Forza Horizons single player

  • The Stunt Driver
  • Drift Club
  • World’s Fastest Rentals
  • LaRacer @ Horizon

There are also other events to be found during your freeroaming of the map, including:

  • Speed trap
  • Danger Sign
  • Speed Zone
  • Drift Zone

Danger signs are espcially fun, as you throw yourself and your car off an unfinished bridge, or over a massive hill and top speeds, the aim being to go as high and far as possible.

You will find the other events located on the map, or just by stumbling across them as you drive, you will notice as you increase your rank you will start finding more events to come across.
