Forza Horizon 5 takes players and the Horizon Driving Festival to Mexico, the largest gaming area in all of the game’s history. Already in the early minutes of the game, you can get a taste of different parts of Mexico as the player is dropped from the plane with stunning cars in alternating environments. The initial intro takes you to gravel roads, asphalt, mountain slopes, the jungle and the middle of a desert storm, and it’s just a small foretaste of what the whole game has to offer.

In addition to pure racing, the open world of Forza Horizon 5 offers a wide range of alternative driving tasks, such as stunt races, and even includes a kind of battle Royale game format. Of course, pure pleasure driving while enjoying the beautiful scenery is also possible.

The different circumstances in Mexico naturally require different features from the car in use, but fortunately there is more than enough choice. Namely, Forza Horizon 5 offers a total of more than 500 great cars, and among them you will find all the dream spending games for car fans.

The list includes the electric Porsche Taycan Turbo S, the incredibly fast Mercedes-AMG ONE supercar, the huge Ford Super Duty F-450, and the Ford Bronco Badlands SUV, which travels even in difficult conditions. Classics like the Porsche 911 or the specialties of the BMW Isetta 300 Export decades ago have not been forgotten either.

Added to the wide range of cars, the Forza Horizon 5 still allows players to customize the go-to games to suit their own tastes with different tuning parts. This way, every virtual car lover can build the true quad bike of their dreams.

Already the previous part of the Forza Horizon series did a lot of glory for motoring with its graphics, but Forza Horizon 5 still manages to take a massive leap forward. If you have the latest iron in your gaming machine, you can take all the joy out of the performance by turning all the candies that add candy to the southeast with ultra settings. In this case, the game looks graphically breathtakingly gorgeous and realistic.

However, the whole is well optimized, and enjoying Forza Horizon 5 doesn’t necessarily require the latest iron. The game also looks beautiful with high and medium settings, so the game also runs on gaming computers purchased with pennies found in the wallets of mortals.

In addition to the graphics, the sound world of the Forza Horizon 5 also works great. The rumble of the engines is repeated nicely in the headphones, and the sounds of the environment, such as the roar of a sandstorm, also make the experience very immersive.

Most importantly, playing Forza Horizon 5 itself is really fun. Driving is just the right balance of realism and arcadic chatter that is enjoyable for both racing veterans and newer entrants. The game takes itself just right, seriously combining a joyful and liberal ride with a realistic driving feel.

As a whole, it’s hard to come up with something bad to say about Forza Horizon 5. It’s about throwing the best open world racing game ever. At the same time, Forza Horizon 5 is one of the best game releases of the year, where you can immerse yourself in dozens or even hundreds of hours of gaming.

Best of all, the game can also be found in the Xbox Game Pass range, so you can play without a very large investment. Although, if the game gets hooked properly, you can get excited about getting a steering wheel and pedals surprisingly fast on your desktop, which will then chastise your purse a little more at once…


Rating: 5/5
