Although Mario Kart 7 has its charms, those wanting a more realistic racing experience need look no further than the latest entry in the high-octane Forza Motorsport
series. Forza 4
delivers a fully flushed out racing simulator with more cars and game modes than you could ever want. What stands out the most are the high fidelity graphics, which are truly stunning, featuring the best-looking car models ever seen on a console (although some Gran Turismo
fanboys may protest). The single player’s artificial intelligence does offer a challenge but is somewhat predictable, online is where the fun is to be had as real human players are unpredictable and frustrating. If I had one gripe, it would be the complex menus and option screens, which can be overwhelming and aren’t the most user-friendly experience. That said, there really is no better racing simulation experience out there, on any platform.
