Forza Horizon 5 is the latest entry in the critically acclaimed racing series. Except it’s not really a racer, it’s a celebration of cars, driving, and exploring via taking the scenic route. Even if that route begins on the edge of an active volcano, or at the base of an awe-inspiring waterfall. The digital Mexico, as recreated by Playground Games, is nothing short of stunning. And a showcase for Xbox Series X and PC hardware.
Forza Horizon 5’s digital Mexico is not only expansive, but stunning in its sheer beauty, diversity, and scope. You can drive anywhere, on-road and off, and drive with others convoy-style via seamless co-op. For the simple pleasure that is driving, Forza Horizon 5 nails it. And that’s before it gets all game-y and you’re stopping to take on a jump challenge, drive through a hidden board, or take part in a multiplayer mini-game where the goal is to drift like you’re summarising the entirety of Initial D in a couple of minutes.
Built to take advantage of high-end PC and Xbox Series X hardware, Forza Horizon 5 is without a doubt a visual leap forward for racing games and the series. The environmental detail is exceptional no matter if you’re going 10 km/h or 200 km/h, and seeing the level of detail in everything from a roadside shack to a giant cliff-face is awe inspiring.
