Guys, let me start by praising the mostly, valiant effort made by the folks at turn 10 for what , im sure you will all agree, they have achieved with forza 5. We could argue till we’re blue in the face about the reasons for the release, of what can only be described as a forza 6 taster. The fact of the matter is that this game is 60% finished. It perhaps boils down to microsft rushing out the xbox one, trying to get ahead of the opposition. No matter. Forza 5 was an unfinished day one blunder in my humble opinion.
Its not all bad news from me, I love the physics, in my opinion 100% improvement on forza 4. I love the graphics, showing off some of the power the xbox has. The new tracks are a revelation, spa is simply stunning, the bugatti circuit, a most welcome return, even evil bathurst, my nemesis at the moment, is great. Prague, ahh prague,
The cars are worthy of a mention. Open wheel finally arrives and what an arrival the old school f1 cars are simply great, the e21, easy to drive but will take ages to master. Finally we get caterham, big, big smiles here. All stunning, all available to explore via forzavista, all paintable.
Magnificent effort turn 10 staff. Truely magnificent.
Im not going to go over and over all the negative points, or all the missing bits, as, well, its all been said, well and Truely said. But heres the point that im trying to get across, bear with me please,
I love the forza series so much that it was the sole reason I bought the xbox one with the lce f5 and ive tried to ignore all the negative bits, but the one thing, the single, one thing, that has really disapointed me and perhaps you guys reading this, is the complete lack of any comunication from turn 10 studios, about how they are, if they are, going to put right the many missing things, that, we, the forza fans have been most vocal about since its release.
So please, turn 10, man up, let the forza community know your not ignoring us, tell us what you plan to put right, or might be putting right in the next quarter and the quarter after that. The less you say, the more you alienate.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
