I thought people were claiming it was going to score an easy 9?

Shut up.
Forza 5 is a great racing game.
Definitely rushed for launch, and incomplete, but will be updated grandly.

I don't deserve to be so happy. :)

How do you know it is great? How would you know if it is terrible?

1. Played every previous Forza
2. Trust the developer
3. Gamespot scored it 9.0
4. Have seen the game
5. Preordered the game
6. My mom told me Forza 5 is great. Really, really great.

At least Eurogamer sees Forza 5 as an incomplete game and therefore ranked it as an incomplete game. Its like claiming GT5: Prologue wasent a glorified demo, cause it was and at least they knew it and we knew it. Eurogamer properly had a discretion for this review, and not try to pass it off as a full game like Gamespot.

Its like these reviews where they are already rating the PS4 and XB1 right out of the box, and arguing about what they have and dont have, despite all of the features that could be added in time.

Also I am not really sure what is the criteria is for rating a driving simulator/racing game.. Wheel Controls? Precision turning? Graphics? Car detail? Content? Sound of the engine? Games like Gran Turismo often have professional driver input when balancing cars, but the average person wont know what a good racing car feels like, turning high speed corners, and the realism is going to not be understood.

Yeh i think the eurogamer is one of the more honest reviews going around. The drivatar system sounds like it could be great once refined and over time but in its current setup i can see us playing career offline and getting hit by drivatars left right and center, that'll suck.

The track scenario is a valid complaint, not so much the lesser number of tracks vs what was actually taken out and what was left in.

It's a game that was obviously rushed for launch but is still a great game. Eurogamer rated accordingly.


In saying that, i'll be picking it up in just over 15 hours and can't wait to play it.
