5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent time killer, a car enthusiast's dream. Dump your Xbone and Forza5 now!, 7 Feb. 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forza Motorsport 4 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
To be honest I've never been much of a car enthusiast. But video-games like this one, and the awesome Forza Horizon (which I also highly recommend) have given me a new appreciation for cars. Not in terms of mechanics, but aesthetics. Even if you know diddly about cars you have to admit that from a sheer aesthetic point of view they are a thing of beauty. And games such as Forza encapsulate not only the outward beauty of cars but they capture their very essence; the sheer joy of driving, the liberation, the speed. Oddly enough, I say this as a non-driver; however, games such as Forza help me understand why car enthusiasts - for example the boys at Top Gear - do what they do and why they love it so much. Indeed, Forza made me a Top Gear fan; seeing the cars in the game helps me relate to what they do. I'm even able to recognise cars now, thanks to Forza! My only regret is the envy I feel as I see Jeremy drive a real F40, while I am limited to a pale imitation in a video game!

I've had the game for about a day, but I knew within 10 minutes of playing it that I would love it. i haven't regretted a single second of it. Everything, from the menu system, the track and event variety, the cars, to the car and game customisations, are pretty much perfect, and I don't say that a lot about games. Even if you are completely indifferent about cars, this game is an excellent time killer, and has plenty of longevity to keep you engaged. It's just a joy to play. After watching a play-through of Forza5 on the Xbox One i cannot understand why people have fallen for it. The differences between the two are so subtle and superficial that they just do not justify spending a fortune on not only a new console but another game. If you are seriously thinking about getting Forza5 because it's the latest thing, I strongly implore you to check out its predecessor first. Forza4 was, and still is, hard to beat, no matter how 'next gen' things have become.
