GameSpot -- 8/10

"As merely the second installment for the Xbox One, Forza Motorsport 6 not only keeps up with the high bar set by Forza 5, it capitalizes on that foundation of quality. The Mod system and the weather effects are reasons enough for Forza 5 enthusiasts to seriously consider this sequel and the abundance of difficulty and assist options makes Forza 6 an immensely accessible driving simulation for newcomers." - Miguel Concepcion [Full review]

IGN -- 9/10

"Like a big bucket of Hot Wheels brought to life, Forza Motorsport 6 is first-order car porn for the automobile obsessed but remains an accessible and exciting racer for those who just want to drive fast in something red with a horse logo on it. It’s spinning its wheels in a few areas but what's here is undoubtedly some of the finest racing you can find on console and easily worth the upgrade from Forza 5." - Luke Reilly [Full review]

Forza Motorsport 6 will to appeal to a lot of gamers, whether they be casual or serious racing fans. But more than any one group, FM6 going to lure in those who were disappointed by Forza 5. This is a far more complete, entertaining, and engaging game in every way." - Brandon Turkus [Full reivew]

Polygon -- 8/10 (Provisional)

"The loss of Top Gear doesn't prevent control improvements from making their mark on Forza. With the loss of some of its personality, Forza Motorsport 6 sometimes feels like a little less than the sum of many much improved parts, and there are certain quality-of-life changes that feel increasingly overdue. But these are only distractions, bumps in the road that make Forza feel 'just' great when looked at from a distance. And in the playing, Turn 10 feels like it's found its line even more effectively." - Arthur Gies [Full review]

Destructoid -- 9.5/10

"Forza 6 is the new king of simulation racing." - Chris Cater [Full review]

GamesRadar -- 3/5

"This is a true showcase for Xbox One in every area except the racing. Inconsistent difficulty, random payouts, and way too many dull events seriously spoil the party." - Justin Towell [Full review]

DigitalSpy -- 5/5

"Forza Motorsport 6 is a terrific game. It misses a few minor beats, with yet another career mode that throws you straight in there, and good god the serious attitude of the game is sickening at best. But this is one of the best driving simulations out there: it's the game launch title Forza 5 really should have been. We're a bit spoiled for choice in great driving games this console generation, and Forza 6 screeches in and finds itself a place at the head of the table with consummate ease. Your move, Driveclub, Project Cars, and Gran Turismo." - Ian Dransfield [Full review]
