Best game 2016

Fantastic graphics, with matched performance. Huge map and a diverse set of environments. Soundtrack to put you in the zone and vehicles are easy to control and drive. A very fun game with heaps to explore and keep you hooked.

Fantastic

Fantastic game, FH2 was my favourite racing game of all time and this has the potential to beat it. Just wish the PC version had SLI support

A 'Rich' Driving Experience

Forza Horizon 3 is a truly great game but not everyone (myself included) can afford to get the full experience. Pros: -Absolutely beautiful graphics -Plenty of variety (terrain, vehicles, customization) -Decent soundtrack and sound design -Multiplayer features Cons: -Bit pricey for so much digital content -Under-optimised, requires card <3 years old just to run on release

Issues & Missing Warthog

Does have slight glitches and spazes, that can cause the game to freeze and/or crash. I get kick from my friends lobbies constantly even though my internet is fine, this annoys me alot especially when we are racing. There are also some cars that aren't quite right, mainly the FPV cars that my friends have noticed. Cheers and hope these issues. are easy fixes that would make the game to play. I give a 5 star for the fact that i hope these issue can be fixed. Oh and also I have the Halo Warthog but i did not recieve it in game, so I went to uninstall it then re-install but it has gone completely and unable to re install, my GT is xXDEVILSBROSAXx if you have any other questions and to let me know how to get my Warthog back? cheers!

Stunningly Beautiful

Everything is beautifully detailed in this game, from the cars to the environment, and the variety of racing styles is entertaining - from high performance racing, to drifting to off-road country racing. Have encountered a bug early on though, my game crashed after upgrading the Byron Bay festival to level 2 and didn't receive my off-road vehicle which made the next couple of races rather challenging. However the beauty in this game let me tune my HSV Maloo into a off-road rally beast.

Steering Wheel lacks feeling, Arcade handling

Great game, really love the graphics and environment but the steering Wheels lack any real feeling. I have ffb and vibration set to 100% but all that happens is It vibrates like crazy on offroad environments. tested g25/27 g920 all the same. Also it has thrown heavily towards the arcade handling and cars lack weight which is really disappointing. Having a simulation offering in settings is kinda just like giving a participation award for being there. I get it, they want kids to play the game, but surely If we pay $140 and select simulation handling, I would want it at least 75% of what the other Forza titles can manage. this feels like about 15%.

Great fun, TERRIBLE performance

I think the game is great as in what SHOULD be able to be enjoyed, but yet another 2016 game has failed to be optimised. The game is horrible for frames with a constant 12 - 20 fps range where as I now have to run on a low resolution of 1152x720 instead of 1920x1080, just to be able to remain at a range of 16 to 20 fps range with all graphics on low. Hopefully this will be patched with a update soon so this game can be enjoyed as I said it is extremely fun and has great amounts of potential.

Beautiful, fun & exhilarating. Exactly what I wanted!

I know many of you have had your share of downloading issues and maybe even CTD's, but I certainly haven't had those experiences, nor do I want them, as this game is truly the best, most fun, and amazingly gorgeous car racing game out there, bar none. I did miss Forza Horizon 2, (as I own a PS4 but not a XBOne), but this game on Windows 10 has finally opened a door I just couldn't find anywhere inside of the PS4 realm. Framerates are awesome, providing you have plenty of horsepower. I would suggest turning off MSAA if playing at 4K, as there is very little difference, and framerates tend to degrade exponentially with MSAA on at higher resolutions. If you want uncapped Framerates, turn off V-Sync too. I haven't enjoyed a racing game like this since Forza Horizon... so obviously its a real treat if your expecting another "Forza Horizon" based experience. FYI, my setup is: i7 6700K, 32 GB Ram, 500TB SSD, Gainward GTX 1080. Gameplay overall is as smooth as butter with top notch visuals!
