A great Forza game finally a full one available on PC!

Fully enjoying the game as FM6:Apex left me unsatisfied with how little there was. I know the fact that you go off road a lot would screw up your traction and steering, but for some reason it just doesn't feel as tight as in FM6. With that in mind you have to chose car builds based on terrain you will be traversing; Lambos don't do well on the beach in a foot of water... Otherwise you have around the same amount of tweak able options on your vehicles, so you can go all gear head while driving like a maniac off road jumping and causing mayhem. Runs flawlessly for me i7-4820k, GIGABYTE GTX 1070 G1, 24 GB 1866 DDR3, running on ultra at both either 1080 or 1200 and without capped frames holds steady at 75-100. I've seen previous reviews about performance issues, however it seems like they have resolved them as I just recently bought game and haven't had 1 issue with it.

Best in Series, Plagued by Port Issues

While the game is undoubtedly the best in the horizon series, and perhaps one of the best racing games in the current gen the PC port leaves much to be desired. With the most recent patch the stuttering at the upgrade screen has been fixed, making the menu usable again, and the race/open world stuttering has been improved. Despite this, there are still distinct micro-stutters when driving in races and the open world, and the framerate is abysmal for what is being rendered. No amount of tweaking has had it break 60 for me, but at least I rarely see it drop below 30. Overall, a better emphasis on the PC platform would benefit Microsoft as this is an undoubtedly amazing game hampered by purely technical issues that do not line up with their supposed renewed focus on PC.

Don't risk it

I recently purchased it, it ran pretty well. A few days later it wouldn't open, and still doesn't. Microsoft will use every excuse they have to not give you a refund. I've done everything I can possibly thing of (short from an actual reinstall of windows) to try and fix the game, with no success. If you decide to risk it, I wish you the best of luck.

Ultimate Horizon Ever

I've been a fan since Forza was one the first Xbox system. Every year Forza has always came up with fans and gamers request for more outstanding, outrageous challenges and full state of the art custom designs and spaced out imaginations come together. Horizon 3 has the awesome power for environment and creating the ultimate setting for all up to date gamers and beginners. I still am amaze and shocked to the core on what is next on their list of download contents "Keep Going Forward" and continue giving us more challenges and more Horizon character cars and other vehicles to dominate this game. Thank you for giving me a chance to work and design images for the Microsoft industries and Xbox gamers to share...

Great Game, but terrible optimization issues.

Forza Horizon 3 is an outstanding game, the amount of freedom you can do in Australia and the tremendous amount of cars. The radio stations are nice, but I would wish for more songs. As Forza Horizon 3 can be great as it can be, the game is poorly optimized. My rig can run this game ultra or a mix between ultra and high, but the huge problem I have with it is the fact how the game stutters for me so much, the game loading times are very absurd. And the framerate dips in the forest. I don't understand how this game would be badly optimized when it runs so well on the Xbox One, yet I have a powerful setup, and I seem to run Halo 5 Forge and Forza 6 Apex with minimal stutter and frame dips and absurd loading times. I do wish this game will fix its own optimization issues, because if they do, I would fully enjoy this game and give it a 5 star rating.

I will say this, any racing game fan, will love this game, better yet any fan of cars in general, will love this game! I can go on & on, but to be quite frank, this game is hands down smooth on windows 10! I sure hope Microsoft decides to bring over some of there other titles for windows, I am a fan and you guys are doing an awesome job! The Halo Master Chief Collection! needs to be here!

Great Game BUT...

I love this game a lot however it still needs to be updated so it's compatible for those of us who use a steering wheel and shifter. My thrustmaster t300 Ferrari with pedals works however my thrustmaster th8a is not working. It's unresponsive after multiple attempts of uninstall and reinstall. The came works smooth and highly recommend this game. If they can fix this for the pc version it's a solid 10/10. Please fix the th8a compatibility. Love the game!!!!
