Forza Horizon 3 it’s just amazing. With a good base of Forza Motorsport, the first Horizon already translated us to the landscapes of Colorado. On the other side, Forza Horizon 2 took us on trip to the south of France and north of Italy, and now it’s our turn to admire the wonders of Australia.
After a couple of hours playing, the graphics are outstanding if you have the Xbox One S combined with a 4K TV with full HDR. I assure that you will be amazed and surprised with the game, if we compare it with Forza Horizon 2. Just when you think the saga can’t get any better, Forza Horizon 3 does it. The game stability on Xbox is perfect, with no lag, frame drop; nothing that stops you from getting the full experience. The only thing with this version is that it runs on 30 fps, contrary to the whole 60 fps that the PC version gives you.
It’s better than Forza Horizon 2, in quantity and quality of content (with more than 350 cars), in an open world twice as big, more detailed and alive; with the novelty that you can ride a co-op campaign and create your own events. And the good stuff remain, with a pristine gameplay.
I’ve barely seen a game that gives you the liberty to play however you want, giving the user a really worthwhile experience.
When you enter in the online competition, like Rivals Mode, this test are one of the great news of Forza Horizon 3, where you get total control and personalization, beyond the career mode that the game offers you.
The level system and evolution inside the game are stable, offering tokens that you can exchange for prices and the possibility of investing points in skill trees. This system adds even more variants to the Forza Horizon 3 evolution.
What Playground Games has done with this game is offer us a gigantic map where we can do whatever we like. You can choose the circuit you want, with the car and requirements you want. There are 8 radio stations available: Pulse (dance music), Block Party (hip-hop/rap), Vagrant (indie), Epitah (rock and punk), Hospital (Drum n’ bass), Future Classic (electro indie) and Timeless (classic); with songs from artists like Justice, Beastie Boys, Chvrches, Offspring, DMX, Bad Religion or Tchaicovsky, among others. It’s a really big musical offer and besides, we can synchronize our Groove Music App so we can hear our favorite songs.
Is really the best and most complete open world racing game I’ve ever seen!
