Forza Motorsport 5 Review (Xbox One) – XboxAddict.com

Wednesday, November 27, 2013.
by Brent Roberts

Forza Motorsport 5 Box art Throughout the history of mankind there have only been a few select moments that have altered its future and the birth of automotive transportation is one such moment. Freedom was just a turn of the key away, and only our imaginations became our limitations. The sensation of the road beneath your tires with a ribbon of black asphalt stretched out before your eyes is a feeling unlike any other, and in Forza 5 we find the greatest tribute to one of the great liberators in the history of mankind, the car. Turn 10 has been producing Forza Motorsport games since the years of the original Xbox, and with every release their goal is to pay homage by delivering the best driving experience you can find anywhere in the digital age; and they have succeeded in a way that is so significant that to accurately measure it would require you to almost compare it to other great monumental achievements in mankind. If ever there was a bar to rise, Turn 10 strapped it to the back of a Bugatti Veyron and sent it 250 miles an hour, straight into orbit while on fire. Chill the blood in your veins and start your engines because it’s time to launch into the best driving game ever available on any console, Forza 5.

Starting out Forza 5 will treat you to an opening sequence by Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, and after that the game takes you straight into racing behind the wheel of a McLaren P1. This is Forza’s way of introducing you to the world of motorsport and the physics that coincide with its existence. You will then be able to choose a car for the upcoming league event you will be participating in. After that you are off on your way through your first series of events that will help familiarize yourself with the courses, the physics of driving itself, and such features like replay and more. Before the races begin you have the option to select different driver assists and decide if you want them on or off, also you have the ability to choose your difficulty of competition. The other racers you will find in Forza are not computer AI controlled vehicles, but actual human drivers via their Drivatar.

Driver San Francisco is the Best Game No One is Talking About

Driver: San Francisco

I should have been playing more Gears of War 3 Friday night. I had an early copy. But I tried Driver: San Francisco.

I should have been playing Gears of War 3 most of Saturday afternoon, but I felt the irrepressible urge to do something else: play more Driver: San Francisco.

I got some Gears in yesterday, but I was late to work this morning. My excuse? I was finishing the storyline campaign of Driver: San Francisco.

I never played a Driver before. I’m not even much of a racing game fan. Those are no hurdles for a fantastic game like this. Let me tell you about my favorite surprise game (so far) of 2011, the one I didn’t think could be so much fun… my own personal Dead Island, Driver: San Francisco.

It feels like nothing else

My old writing buddy N’Gai Croal accuses me of having an “innovation bias.” Well, yeah. I’ve been playing games for a couple of decades. If a new one can surprise me—if it can empower me to do something I don’t feel like I’ve done before—I’m impressed.

Driver San Francisco is the Best Game No One is Talking About

Driver: SF has me doing something I haven’t done in games before. Specifically: while racing through a virtual San Francisco in at Aston Martin at 150 miles per hour, in pursuit of a criminal getaway car 10 yards ahead of me, I can tap a button and suddenly be watching this chase from the clouds above. I may then spot an SUV driving in the opposite direction, tag it with a tap of a controller button, suddenly be driving behind the wheel of that SUV…. then take this new vehicle, cross the median and smash it headlong into that criminal getaway car as my original car whizzes by behind it on some sort of ghostly cruise control.

You are possessing cars (like a ghost!)….
