Why is it being reviewed by a 14 year old boy?

Anyways, eurogamer (a credible review site) gave it a 7, so yes, it's a flop.

follow the system wars rules ffs. this forum is getting s*itter by the day.

But I don't care about your playtime children games. Eurogamer is a superior review site. Fact.

Go to the forums on Eurogamer then, we use GS scores for the metagame here and to decide whether a game met it's hype or not.

@Stevo_the_gamer: which is pretty wierd that gs was very forgiving in that point .... i remember that gt5 also was praised for game play but it didnt prevent the game from being hammered.

low 80s on MC, TLHBO

So. Beyond: Two Souls is a flop then.

yes it is

So Resogun is a flop then?

Resogun is sitting at an 83 MC score; Forza 5 is at an 84.

So, lets see!

The most important thing in a review is gameplay department and in Forza 5 we a have a dozen lack of features:

Less tracks

Less cars

Horrible AI (proven by a lot of reviewers)

No rain feature (affects gameplay)

No day-night cycle

Maybe there are more maybe not, but this type of racing game with these minuses wouldn't have score more than a 8 on current gen console (look at the disaster of GT5), let alone on next gen consoles, in which you are waiting more and more features than those mentioned above from a racing sim game.

So why 9/10??! Because it's Forza! So what?!

Because of the beautiful gfx??!! Killzone has great gfx but this didn't affect the fair review of it.

You will bash me now and will say that the reviewer had this opinion for the game. I know, but his opinion has to count and to be fair in comparison to mine.

And why the %ell the review has come in the same time as IGN's?! Why are they not reviewing Ryse?! (a 5 hour game)

A dozen features... goes on to list 5. Haha. But seriously Turn 10 already said they could put the content in but won't because they wanted to update their laser scans on every track and make it extremely accurate. I am down with that if they offer some DLC at a decent $.

Gamespot seemed to be very generous with this game. I don't see how a game with half the content of the last game in the series can outscore it.

That just doesn't make any sense to me. Other reviewers are pointing it that out and giving the game a lower score because of it.

Obviously not a flop, but cows everywhere just got owned HARD! X1 launch wins over PS4 trash of a launch!

TCHBO!

haha what a joke of a review. has less content then predecessor yet still scores 9. good game for racing fans probably but not a system seller i dont think just a substitute. anyway normal service will resume tomo when ryse scores 6

Its because Turn 10 does sequels properly

Forza 5 goes out of its way to ensure that every feature carried over from previous games has seen meaningful improvements.

Quality over all - unless its improved upon, its not included

thats mostly marketing bs. they just want to charge u for dlc

Turn 10 spent six months on each car that is in Forza 5 - they're not included in the game because they weren't done when the game was finished.

Forza has had DLC dating back to Forza 2 and Microsoft is in the business of making money. It is what it is. (thats how I see it)

Oh and man up? Are you 12?

You are the only one discussing this like someone just stole your sweets.

If i deemed it to be too much for everyone, i would not have posted it, i am an adult after all, some people are overly sensitive, welcome to the real world.


If YOU deemed it too much? This is a gaming forum. I come on here to talk about games not argue validity of none related videos with a half wit. good day to you sir. I'm done with you now.

Not really, just to see such a bunch of egotistical morons get owned is always entertaining.

@bobbetybob: TCHBO!!! Again. Forza 5 beat out every PS4 exclusive, even their Indie games. LMAO!!

Once again the XBox get the FIRST AAAE exclusive over the PS4.

Cows are crying right now. I expect most of them will stay out of this thread or do nothing but damage control. They can't even call Forza 5 720P. lmao!!!

Now I know what they have said because they thought they ended with a garbage product but hey it turns out to be pretty perfect game so why will they put more content later!! C'mon

#125 Posted by EducatingU_PCMR (529 posts) -

Hilarious if Ryse can get an 8 or above.

PS4 has no games.

How could a 9 ever be a flop? Ever?

#132 Posted by mavven (548 posts) -

@2mrw:

Exactly! Forza 5 has a ton of lack of features and has only its gfx (debatable), it's released for NEXT GEN consoles, and it gets a 9 here at GS (which reviewing system is pathetic). It is strange!

quality over quantity

Wouldn't it be funny if X1 sells 1.5 million over the weekend?

The game has score well

Deal with it

Accept it like a man, stop with this denial.

Where are you now cows? Boehoeeeee, all crying in a corner.

#137 Posted by shawn30 (4361 posts) -

We all knew it was coming. Its the best racing game on the market after all.

Agreed. Forza getting a 9 is like Bungie, Naughty Dog, and Bethseda getting a 9. The pedigree and history of certain devs equal high quality every time. I am very impressed by Forza 5

Thats how I feel as a herm. I'm patting the Lems' backs on this one and congratulating them for b*tch slapping cows and putting them in their place. The mass cow damage control is making this morning very much enjoyable.

#141 Posted by R3FURBISHED (10173 posts) -

In regards to the Eurogamer review:

All that's left is the grind, and it's not a particularly pleasant one. Unlike previous outings, cars don't unlock upon levelling up. Everything must be bought in Forza Motorsport 5, and all transactions take place in a slightly misshapen economy. A series will, on average, net the player in excess of 110,000 credits for just under an hour's effort - but with some of the premium racecars costing well over a million, it's a somewhat brutal grind. Good job, then, that there are tokens purchasable on the Xbox One's marketplace for you to attain the car you're after, or to temporarily boost the rate at which you gain XP. When you've already paid £429.99 for a new console, £44.99 for the game and maybe even £349.99 for the only steering wheel that the game supports at launch, such tricks appear a little unsavoury, and in Forza 5, mechanics greedily smuggled from free-to-play games trample over the elegant RPG elements the series once embraced so effectively.

I don't understand the point of this - I paid money for my console so the content in the games I bought shouldn't be difficult to acquire?
Was it Turn 10 that produced the software/firmware in the Xbox One that only allows for the second rate steering wheel support?

Why does that belong in the review!?

It's just like Wasdi said ... the game is lacking .... eurogamer recognizes this point and this is the main reason it hammered it .... and now we will have to pay more ... I wonder what if GT5 removed the standard cars and only was released with the premium ones ... I guess it would have scored AAA and AAAA everywhere based on Forza 5 review !!!!!

I love it!

Called it on the money. And yet again MSoft is yet to launch a system without a AAAe at launch.

Just think the KI review is incoming as well. I said 8 lets see if it holds up.

The One launch is superior by a wide margin at this point and it only gets better from here.

Bad day for Cows on SW.......

#150 Edited by me2002 (1288 posts) -

seeing this 90+ franchise on MC drop down to 82 is the real win

keep playing your SW game and owning the cows if that makes you happy
