Spending a small amount of time with Forza Motorsport 6 gave me a small taste of what is to come and I definitely want to play some more.
We’re at EGX15 and one of the big games headlining the Xbox stand is Forza Motorsport 6.
Forza Motorsport 6 is came to September 18th and we’ve recently had a chance to sit down with it for some time. It shouldn’t be a shock to hear that Forza Motorsport 6 is an absolutely beautiful game. It runs incredibly smooth at 1080p and 60 frames per second like the previous Forza titles on the Xbox One. Forza 6 features over 450 “Forzavista cars” that all have working cockpits and full damage.
It also features 26 locales, more than 100 ribbons in total and much more.
When you first start up Forza Motorsport 6 you will immediately notice how pretty the game is and even just from the menus alone.
The experience of seeing the environments and tracks will leave you dazed and you won’t want to take your eyes off it. Not only that but all of the cars are insanely detailed and look [that one more step] realistic than they did in Forza Motorsport 5.
The new flagship also boasts weather and it can be really amazing racing through the rain from the cockpit view and seeing the water realistically hit the windshield as your windshield wipers keep going back and forth so your vision doesn’t get blurred.
You’ll need to keep an eye out for those puddles though as they really are everywhere. One of the best additions in Forza Motorsport 6 is the extra addition of realism and the subtle changes in the driving dynamics. For example, when you drive over the puddles too fast then you have a great chance of aquaplaning and losing control of your car (and potentially the race too!).
The audio is also incredibly crisp and noticeably clearer. One of the best experiences in the whole gameplay is listening to the cars roar down the track, the tires screeching on the road as you take that turn and more.
There are some brand new racetracks and strips in Forza Motorsport 6 that include Daytona Motor Speedway, Monza, Brands Hatch and more.
The tracks in the game are a mixture of real world locations as well as some fictional tracks. During my short time with the game the cars all seemed to handle really well and handle differently depending on the conditions of the track.
Obviously if it was raining the track is more slick to you have to approach a turn differently in addition to kind of relearning that track so that you can avoid those rain puddles all over the track that will take you from first to last in the blink of an eye.
Unfortunately I wasn’t really able to get much use out of the Forza Motorsport 6 Multiplayer experience as the Xbox One I was testing it on kept disconnecting so I had to do most testing on Single Player.
Overall the brief amount of time I spent with Forza Motorsport 6 left an impeccable impression on me.
I’m not usually one for racing games but Forza Motorsport 6 definitely left me excited to try out all of the new features that I wasn’t able to during my session.
With so many cars and so many tracks available in the game it will take quite a while to see everything.
The game is now available so you should definitely purchase it if you have/had Forza Motorsport 5 and check it out.
If you are a car or racing guy [or gal] you definitely won’t be disappointed.
