TrueAchievements - 5/5

By this stage, it should come as no surprise that Playground Games finds a way to raise the bar for each release in the Horizon series, and they've once again found another gear in Forza Horizon 4 that leaves its competitors trailing in the dust. The roster of cars is bigger than ever, the setting of Britain is stunningly recreated down to the finest detail, the shared online world is a resounding success, and the addition of seasons adds something completely new and unique to the series both in terms of the gameplay and the aesthetics of the world. I don't know how they do it, but Playground Games has once again set the standard for other racing games to strive for.

IGN - 9.6/10

I’ll always have a massive soft spot for the down under delights of Forza Horizon 3, but open-world racing has never looked as good as it does in Forza Horizon 4. It combines a beautiful world that’s really four hugely distinct maps in one with a constantly rewarding and self-renewing racing experience and I really can’t tear myself away from it. Playground Games hasn’t just upped the ante once again; it’s blown the bloody doors off.

Destructoid - 9/10

Forza Horizon 4 is another fantastically fun Forza Horizon game even if it's tough to pinpoint Playground's grandest ambition.

Gamespot - 9/10

Playground Games continues to excel at making the act of virtual driving exciting, approachable, and entertaining without sacrificing complexity.

GamesRadar - 8/10

Forza Horizon 4 isn’t as bombastic as its predecessor, but still a challenging and all-encompassing online racer. And the more introverted moments of driving through autumnal or snow-dusted Britain are beautiful, especially as a showcase for Xbox One X.

Preordered it on PC, I would give -5 points to the score for releasing it on the Microsoft Store. The Store is still a piece of shit software going nowhere.

92? Damn.... To think that a game of this calibre will launch on ganepass day one...



Reviewers are so biased against Xbox. /s

 

OT: Congrats Microsoft and Playground. The game looks great and as fun as Forza Horizon 3.

Question - Whats wrong with the Windows Store? I have played FH3 and Gears 4 and they worked incredibly well. Or is it because it doesnt add to your Steam library?

 

Also no need to deduct points because you can get the Game on XB1.. unless you are saying you will deduct points because its a MS exclusive..
