Forza 7

Games Master - - Instant X-pert -

Talk about a track record. This is po­si­tioned as Xbox One X’s premier des­ti­na­tion, much like the ac­cel­er­a­tor pedal is the premier des­ti­na­tion for your foot when you en­ter a high-pow­ered su­per­car. Turn 10’s latest driv­ing sim is another show­case for the con­sole’s killer features: 4K res­o­lu­tion, 60fps, HDR (high dy­namic range), wide colour gamut, and more. It’s not a com­plete gen­er­a­tional leap over the Forza Hori­zon 3, but frame rates are slicker.

Each car in the 700-strong ros­ter achieves more sub­tle lev­els of detail. A fo­cus on grime shows in caked-on wind­shield dirt, im­proved en­vi­ron­men­tal ren­der­ing tech­niques make dark clouds an­grier and sun­shine brighter, and driv­ers now have hun­dreds of pieces of gear. Noth­ing too trans­for­ma­tive, then, but lov­ingly au­then­tic all the same. The fact Forza 7 out­puts 4K at 60fps for half the cost of a sim­i­lar­ly­pow­ered PC re­ally speaks to the power of Mi­crosoft’s ma­chine.
