July Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 adds ten new cars

It never occurred to me just how much DLC Forza Motorsport 4 has. Hell, the entire series has a mountain of DLC. Not that it's a bad thing, I guess I just never thought about it. That Season Pass would have really come in ha...

E3: Forza Horizon is more than casual racing photo
E3: Forza Horizon is more than casual racing
by Dale North

Me? I love Forza Motorsport. It's exactly the type of the racing game I love to play with its focus on simulation and car acquisition. But what about people that want to drive, explore and race others? What abou the folks that want something a bit more laid back and hip? 

Turn 10 and Playground Games has an answer with upcoming Xbox 360 racer Forza Horizon. They call it an open-world action racing game, but you're already calling it their take on Need for Speed. But not so fast there, arcade racer. It does fall in the pick-up-and-play category, and they're definitely aiming to make a more accessible racing game, but the focus here leans more toward authenticity.

Review: Forza Motorsport 4 photo
Review: Forza Motorsport 4
by Dale North

Competition is good for gamers. Competition is really good for fans of racing simulation games.

When Forza Motorsport 3 came out, it left every competitor in the dust with its polished control, a massive automobile collection, deep customization options and new levels of accessibility. I called it the "new king of racers" in my review, and I meant it. Up until last week, some two years later, I still played Forza 3 just about every week.

The competition, Polyphony Digital, had been working for years on their next racer, Gran Turismo 5. When it finally came out I said it was worth the wait. It was apparent that they had been working to gain back the ground lost to Turn 10 and may have lacked some of the polish of Forza 3, but GT5 ended up being a massive racing world that car geeks could get lost in and never come out. It's like they spent all six years packing in content; I'm still nowhere near feeling like I'm finished with the game.

Turn 10 had their work cut out for them with Forza Motorsport 4. If they wanted to keep up with the competition, it had to be bigger, look better and offer a lot more. But what else could they pack in? How could they make a better racer?

They figured it out. They've done it again -- Forza Motorsport 4 comes out on top.
