Forza Motorsport 4

Forza 4 is a racing simulator made by developers Turn10. There's not really any story to it besides race, race and race some more until you can feel your mind becoming infused with the game.

The game boasts a variety of cars, and DLCs keep coming, brining in new cars for existing manufacturers and whole new car companies entirely. This game will have everyone's favourite car company and model, which will make the racing, a lot more enjoyable.

Obscure companies (For modern day Britain) are companies such as Abarth, Mercury and Acura. And companies that have gone bankrupt, such as TVR (Fun fact: TVR is my favourite car company) and Austin Healey are all available to drive, and upgrade in the game.

There's online modes, a career mode, event list, Storefront and Autovista. Each are interesting to do. Career mode let's you face cars and A.I opponents that get better with progression. Event list, which i prefer, is where you can select any of the career mode race scenarios at whim, this adds a bit of variety to game. And the online modes allow you to race the personalised cars with other people across the globe, and if that gets boring, you could always play car football. Car football sounds like a stupid idea they've copied from Top Gear, which they have, but when you play two or three players aside, it'll be the most fun you've ever had on a racing game. Autovista is where you can get up close and personal with certain cars, and an overview of the car is voiced by none other than Jeremy Clarkson, you either love him or hate him. And finally the Storefront, this is where you can buy items from other players, such as car tune setups, cars themselves, car designs, and car stickers. For the more stylish drivers.

But, there is an ugly truth, and for me racing games do get boring after an hour or two. It's not that Forza 4 is a bad game, but you do the same thing over, and over again. "But Fred! You magnificent stallion of a creature" i hear you shout "Shooting games are repetitive too!" Yes shooting games can suffer from the same problem, but you get yourself more immersed in action games. And when you can't die in a game, you lose the thrill.

So, if you've got spare cash, and only an hour or two of spare time, Forza 4 will fit snuggly into your game collection
