This review is from: Forza Motorsport 4 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Love this game, its fantastic. Graphically second to none. It doesn't actually seem all that different from the previous Forza but that said Forza 3 was also a master piece. Forza 4 is a full on race simulator completely free from arcade style race game feats and contains in depth vehicle settings. You can tune your car to suit you and even edit the way it looks by adding wings and body kits. The detail looks great but still no sing of night time driving or changes in weather.
-Stunning graphics, the best I've seen in a race sim.
-Cars sound like cars! (As opposed to a swarm of bees GT5)
-Simulation settings are great, you can fine tune cars and the damage has been slightly improved over Forza 3.
-Car variety (there are loads and DLC too).
-Car rewards (you have a choice now and levelling up for manufacturers has been changed a bit for the better.)
-Offline gamers lose out (can't build credits easily or trade cars, the Ferrari 250 GTO costs 10mil, on a good race you can pull 20k, I'll be on months trying to make 10mil)
-Pay for cars option (penny pinching here, really hate this in games but its becoming a bit of a trend sadly)
-Difficulty settings (career mode cannot change opponent difficulty - it's a bit easy for your average race sim fan)
-Lack of bad weather/night time driving, always sunny, always midday.
-AI are still no better than forza 3, whereas they were over aggressive and generally oblivious to your presence in Forza 3, it appears they are over aware of you and tend to brake ridiculously if they get too close to you tbh, I preferred the aggressive AI on Forza 3.
-Lack of open world map. (Not really a major fault in a race sim, but with current gen capabilities, it's not too much to ask).
Overall it's a fantastic game, one of the best current gen I'd say. As a race sim its right at the top of the pack and is the best I've ever played. What annoys me is the fact you have to race for hours on end to accumulate a decent amount of cash (enough to buy Ferrari 250 GTO) if you don't have online but you can rather conveniently pay actual money for one - This it seems is the future of gaming and its very sad to see, you'd think paying for the game would entitle you to all of its features, not so and for this alone a star has been taken away. Everything else is pretty much perfection, Forza is a few tweaks away from being absolutely perfect, well done Turn10!
My rating: 9.7/10 (minus a star for redeem code rip-off)
Genre: Racing simulator, Racing, Driving.

I agree with this reviewer - there is a growing trend of having to pay for extra content in games - Tiger Woods is a prime example of this. You wouldn't buy a film on DVD and expect to have to buy the ending separately online.
I agree about the AI too - I experimented the other night using the rewind function to position my car differently on a certain bend to see if the opponents would adjust their position accordingly - nope, exactly the same regardless of whether it meant side-swiping me out of their way.
