Friction assist right? Yes, and yes.

Trophy trucks are utterly useless. At least in the alps. Oh you wanna go 140? Let me just completely lose traction in a straight.

Quick thoughts:

-Game is gorgeous, at times. The rain effects and sky during those transitions are amazing. Tracks like Maple Valley, however, look terrible. The trees are laughably bad.
-Turn 10 has seemingly stripped away the joy of buying and modding a car. So far, Ive seen zero need to modify anything. They basically spoon feed you cars to the race and thats that.
-The menu system is god awful, busy, and lacks any sense of flow. I hate the angled main menu. I hate the race menu as well.
-The AI is bullshit. I do have it turned up but IDENTICAL cars gap band me on the straights, for no reason. I'm finding it extremely difficult to even touch the top 3. Obviously this can be fixed and it does present a challenge, but I feel severely handicapped in some races.
-The "car collection" aspect is dumb and I dont quite get it still. So I need to buy bullshit cars to get some of the cars I want that are locked? Wut?
-The loot crates - total garbage...is this COD?

I dunno, so far, the game feels like an experiment of many different ideas and none are executed overly well.

Yeah I dont think id wanna be driving those w/ a controller, you really gotta pay attention to the front of that thing when youre pushing thru a turn cuz once you see the front end lift up you gotta either let up or start countersteering. With the wheel you can at least feel the steering start to go light so you can catch it quicker.

I love the cockpit view w/out the steering wheel, especially in the open wheel cars, but turn 10 has got to do something about the mirrors. Maybe if i were playing on a 3 monitor setup it wouldnt be an issue, but come on. They dont even give you a rear view mirror on top like you get in bumper cam. Have to keep looking back behind me and using those stupid arrows to try and determine how close someone is to me.

It is pretty sweet tho on the vintage open wheel cars you can see the brake discs glowing from inside the wheel.

Might be petty to some people, but are they going to offer more homespaces? Or at least some with decent lighting? Hated the ones in 6. Look at your car in either shadows or artificial light.

It's probably 90% what ended up in the final game.

Also, Maple Valley feels off. I'm not sure why. It's almost wider, making some of the turns easier and less fun.

Of course. Im at watkins glen, coming around the sweeping right hander that leads to the big straight, ive got a run on the car in front of me, i see a space on the outside, so i go for it, and as i do the car im trying to overtake drifts wide and squeezes me into the barrier. I rewind, and who is it? Mook. Some things never change.

I smashed into Ken first turn of the first lap and wrecked his car. Literally, he was out for the race. Fuck him.

I’m having a hard time staying interested in the game. Regular races are too short, the long ones get boring after lap 6 or 7. I guess since I already have 4.5 million credits I could just turn it down to the short races and demo derby the first lap.

Bought and FC RX-7 to LS swap and race... doesn’t meet class specifications. This is annoying that you can’t really mod how you want to.

Oh my god it is so awful. Just plows thru every corner at any speed, so you try and give it some gas to induce oversteer and the whole thing just kicks out and you plow into the wall with the rear instead.

So far, game is a huge letdown. I really only bought it so I'd have something to showcase one x.

And I'm glad I did not buy 7, and will not buy 7.

5 was poor, 6 was worse with the MOD card bullshit, and 7 just seems to have completely forgotten what made Forza great.

I think a lotta people are over-reacting. The Mod card system in 6 was even less intrusive than it is in 7. You never had to use a single card if you didnt want to. You could ignore it altogether and get the same experience. In this game if you want credit or xp bonuses you kinda HAVE to use them.

The driving in 7 is still utterly fantastic. Wish the AI acted a little differently but thats just the drivatar bullshit theyve invested themselves in all these years. I do wish they made more mistakes tho. These cars almost do put a wheel wrong. Aside from destruction derby'ing everyone off the road.

I'm enjoying it so far. The seeker class has the "open" league with a max C 500, I believe, and the Clio RS has room from the ceiling at 49X so I bought it, loaded up a front and rear spoiler, LSD and a few extra ponies and am flying past fools; I'm on Highly Skilled, I think.

There's like 100 games that will showcase X, just an FYI.

I'm skipping out on 7, after buying F3-F6, Forza Horizon has spoiled me.

Time to take on this trophy truck challenge. Its the last set of races I have left in Seeker. Since I haven't received a trophy truck yet, I suppose I'll have to spend some of my 2.3 million credits to purchase one.
