Forza Horizon 3: Arcade Racing Perfected
Lovers of racing games have a reason to rejoice with the release of Forza Horizon 3 on the Xbox and PC. An arcade racing game that has outstanding graphics, thrilling chase scenes and a great soundtrack, this is certainly a game worth playing.
Forza has a massive variety of vehicles to choose from, a huge array of open tracks and interesting and fun challenges. While it is not very different from any of the previous Horizon games, this fact is not really a drawback as the predecessors were equally enjoyable.
As a player, you will participate in the Horizon world open racing festival and battle other drivers in order to win money, experience points and of course win challenges. In Horizon 3, the race takes place in Australia. Drive across the dust-filled deserts of the Australian Outback, through the sleepy suburbs, the busy streets in Byron Bay city and along breath-taking sandy beaches.
Whether you are driving along a track or off-roading, the courses are all exciting and equally stunning. With graphics that are this good, you may even be fooled into thinking the visuals are actual photos.
You can even decide where to run your operations and where to open a route. In Horizon 3 you can find and recruit a team of your own drivers who will then compete for you and earn you points in the Horizon festival.
Another feature that has made a reappearance in the game is the Bucket List which requires you to tick-off challenges along the way. The challenges range from speed camera tests, to timed races. A fun added feature is the ability to design your own challenge right from choosing the cars, the route, the music, weather and time of the day.
Forza Horizon 3 allows you to play against other online players and compete in different races and mini games. While playing online you can organise a racing club and race against other drivers with similar statistics and teams till you are at the top of the leader board.
While the game may sometimes lag when you are racing against players online, it is mostly smooth and clear throughout. The Forza Horizon 3 is without a doubt a brilliant racing game whether you are a PC gamer or an Xbox One player.
