That headline might read a bit weirdly, but it's more or less a statement about how each Forza Horizon entry just adds new life to the car and racing genre, with Forza Horizon4 being no different. As we explore in our review.

And more than just introducing us to new seasons and dynamic weather from those seasons, as a game built from the ground up to really captitalise on the Xbox One X's architecture and 4K HDR, Forza Horizon 4 is a visual masterpiece and should definitely make you consider upgrading, if you're still not in that camp.

Here's some words from our review:
And this is an easy dot-point to highlight: it changes the game beyond visual sheen and charges players with new ways to think about races; about their cars or their car setups (if you’re so inclined). It makes the racing even more visceral this time around, which when you consider the heritage here, is no small feat. Moreover, smaller, more social and streamlined additions have come to the game. It’s not just you flying solo amidst Drivatars and AI anymore, now alongside those androids who dream of electric sheep are real people. No more posing Deckards -- some cars are the real deal, and you can interact with them through a simple and inoffensive emote system that also allows you to invite them into a co-op or competitive race, or to just join you in a general driving session. And while we love our Roy Batty Drivatars and their oft Batty like-for-like unpredictability, having actual real-time humans in the game just helps it feel more alive.

Maybe the next DLC needs synth, hover cars and lots of neon...

Yep, those are my own screens from the game, and yep, I love the Subaru WRX 2015 model in AusGamers colours. Not the fastest car in the game's livery, but damn does it handle with perfection...
