    Forza Horizon Reviews


    Metacritic: 92%





    Opencritic: 91%





    Gamingtrend - 10/10

    Forza Horizon 4 is one of the best games I’ve ever played. Incredible driving mechanics, cutting-edge seasonal changes in a shared-world, and addictive RPG mechanics make exploring Great Britain an absolute blast.


    Twinfinite - 10/10

    It’s hard to imagine an arcade racer this generation playing and looking much better than Forza Horizon 4. Unless you don’t like racing games, or only appreciate hyper-realism, there’s no other reason that Xbox One and Windows owners should pass this game up. It’s by far the best Xbox One exclusive for 2018, and among the best games this year, period.


    Gamespew - 10/10

    It is, without a doubt, the best racing game available right now. In fact, it might be the best racing game of all time. If you own an Xbox One, you need Forza Horizon 4. It’s as simple as that.


    Heavy - 9.8/10

    Forza Horizon 4 is an exhilarating tour through the beautiful countryside of Great Britain. Racing game fans and non-fans alike need to give this amazing sequel a go.


    Xbox Tavern - 9.8

    Forza Horizon 4 is the most stunning, deepest and most engaging Forza Horizon game to date. The sheer volume of utterly diverse and wildly interesting content pushes the game’s longevity through the roof. There’s no shortage of activities to take to, set across a sprawling, vividly detailed representation of Britain. Safe to say that if you enjoy the series, you’re going to love this.


    IGN - 9.6/10

    I’ll always have a massive soft spot for the down under delights of Forza Horizon 3, but open-world racing has never looked as good as it does in Forza Horizon 4. It combines a beautiful world that’s really four hugely distinct maps in one with a constantly rewarding and self-renewing racing experience and I really can’t tear myself away from it. Playground Games hasn’t just upped the ante once again; it’s blown the bloody doors off.


    COGconnected - 9.5/10

    Pour yourself a spot of tea, butter and jam some crumpets, cozy up by the fireside, and take Forza Horizon 4 for a spin – it’s a bloody good time.


    God is a Geek - 9.5/10

    There is something truly special about Forza Horizon 4 and it is definitely a worthy addition to the series, sitting alongside its predecessor as the pinnacle of racing games.

    To be honest I was never a fan of their work, I just didn't see the point! I bought the Telltale Collection a couple of years back when it was on sale and only ever played through a few episodes of TWD season 1. I found it incredibly tedious and boring. There was a good story in there but the slow searching sections killed the pacing for me and I couldn't be arsed to go through the pain of those to move the story forward. I would rather just watch a boxset on the TV instead,

    I don't think this genre is for me, I even struggled getting through Life is strange that felt way more polished and like the choices I made really mattered. Always sad to see a studio go down though, even if I didn't like their work it is still a great loss to the diversity and choice within gaming :(

    Wow, Telltale Games is gone now too? Good thing MS is hiring at so many of their studios, because these guys were really talented and it's a shame they're out of work.

    Telltale Games shutdown to leave The Walking Dead's final season incomplete

    Following reports that Telltale Games has laid off the majority of its staff, CNET has confirmed that the storied video game studio is planning to close its doors for good, with only a skeleton crew of 25 remaining to "fulfill the company's obligations to its board and partners."
    Known for pioneering episodic games where the choices you'd make in one episode would carry on to the next -- most prominently The Walking Dead, Batman, Minecraft Story Mode and The Wolf Among Us -- the studio attracted big brands like Game of Thrones, Back to the Future and Guardians of the Galaxy with the same formula. It was working on a Stranger Things game for Netflix before Telltale's collapse. (Netflix said it's figuring out what to do about that now.)
    In 2012, CNET praised The Walking Dead game for an "interactive storytelling experience that other zombie games can only dream of delivering."
    The Walking Dead game continued with three full seasons (and a Michonne spinoff) in the years since, but it looks like its just-commenced final season will be cut short.

    Melissa Hutchinson, who is the voice of long-term survivor Clementine, tweeted a statement over the weekend, as previously reported by Nintendo Life.
    "I, unfortunately, like most of you, do not have the details on how this all came to be and I also do not know the fate of the final season of TWD," the actor wrote. "To my knowledge, they will release Episode 2 and then that will be it. It hurts me that you, the fans, will not get to see Clem's journey through to the end."
    Hello friends. I am so very deeply moved by the messages of love that I, and the folks from @telltalegames have been receiving. Yesterday was one of the toughest days ever. A lot of hearts were broken, including mine. Please read the attached. #TelltaleJobs #Clementine #TWD pic.twitter.com/Fb68z86j8e
    — Melissa Hutchison (@Melyhutch) September 22, 2018
    The first episode of the game's final season was released Aug. 14 and the second is out on Tuesday. The episodes weren't sold separately; they were only available as part of the season pass, so fans paid upfront for the season in its entirety.
    Telltale didn't immediately respond to request for comment.
    Hutchinson also noted that The Wolf Among Us won't get its previously announced second season.
    "It hurts to know that long-awaited titles like a second season of The Wolf Among Us won't be made," she wrote.
    Here's the statement Telltale Games provided Friday:
    Today Telltale Games made the difficult decision to begin a majority studio closure following a year marked by insurmountable challenges. A majority of the company's employees were dismissed earlier this morning, with a small group of 25 employees staying on to fulfill the company's obligations to its board and partners. CEO Pete Hawley issued the following statement:
    "It's been an incredibly difficult year for Telltale as we worked to set the company on a new course. Unfortunately, we ran out of time trying to get there. We released some of our best content this year and received a tremendous amount of positive feedback, but ultimately, that did not translate to sales. With a heavy heart, we watch our friends leave https://www.cnet.com/news/telltale-g...complete/today to spread our brand of storytelling across the games industry."
    Telltale will issue further comments regarding its product portfolio in the coming weeks.
    Here's a statement from Netflix:
    We are saddened by the news about Telltale Games - they developed many great games in the past and left an indelible mark in the industry. Minecraft: Story Mode is still moving forward as planned. We are in the process of evaluating other options for bringing the Stranger Things universe to life in an interactive medium.
    Though Telltale co-founder and former CEO Kevin Bruner sued the company earlier this year, he also penned a goodbye to Telltale on his blog. "We chose to venture where others dared not go, and we found some success along the way. It took a lot of vision, luck, will power, teamwork, talent, and very long days and nights to get there, but it will forever have been worth it," he said in the blog post.

    The guy said that he was comparing a compressed E3 video of the PS4 version to the PS4 Pro version of the game, and it still looked downgraded... albeit sharper because of the resolution of the Pro.

    Seriously though, why do a video comparing the PS4 to the Pro other than to detract from the real issue of the downgrade being significant?

    Lol 😁 even the uploader is trying to convince himself it's ok 👌 but then he sort of realises it's all for the art 🤣.

    The sad part about this is....remember how the pony's destroyed Quantum Break out of the gate because of it's resolution downgrade?
    https://youtu.be/nf12d8z2wtE vs https://youtu.be/L2wr7vebb6Y skip to puddle gate 14:20

    Good old John he actually said for the most part Quantum Break was upgraded from E3 previous showing's....but all I can seem to remember about this game was dynamic 720p blar blar blar. One thing for sure Quantum Break still is a benchmark 720p or not. But the funny thing is now we have X1X and have the best multiplatform iterations resolution (true 4K) doesn't matter and the mantra is all about the art🤣. God how the industry protects Sony is beyond scary for sure!!!

    Ssssh.... I thought I'd put true 4K in brackets so not to shout it out like 1080p makes you a better gamer for the players!🤣mantra 🤣.
