25th October, 2018 in Car Topics

When it came to picking which console to go with for this generation, racing game fans had to choose between Gran Turismo on the PlayStation 4 or Forza on the Xbox One. While the debate as to which game franchise is better was very close, the releases Forza Horizon series has put the Xbox-exclusive as the best that the genre has to offer.

Recently, Forza Horizon 4 hit the shelves, this time taking players across Great Britain in hundreds of different cars in many different forms of racings, including drifting. With impeccable graphics, cars that are very in tune to their real-life models, and so many ways to play, the game has reviewers raving about it being the very best racing game ever released, let alone the best game of the series.

So, what makes this game so good, and is the drifting up to scratch?

An almighty list of cars

Forza Horizon 4 prides itself on offering a huge experience to gamers, which includes a massive map to free roam around, many different ways to race, and a huge roster of unique vehicles. On this rendition of the increasingly popular racing franchise, there are nearly 1000 unique vehicles with more being added after its release.

You’ll find cars from the biggest manufacturers like Aston Martin, Bugatti, Ferrari, Honda, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche, as well as other great car creators like TVR, Spania, Zenvo, Mini, Infiniti, Cadillac, and Abarth. There’s a car for everyone, and you’ll find yourself building a roster of cars to tackle all grades and forms of races – from grade D to S and regular races to drifting and battles.

With such a huge selection of cars to pick from, players can also customize their cars, which can be used to adapt your favorite car into an elite-level drifter.

Most importantly, the drifting

In Forza Horizon 4, drifting isn’t restricted to certain races as players can drift around the open roads of Great Britain whenever they so choose. While it’s important to pick a car with rear-wheel drive, cars can be customized to become better at drifting.

For example, if you’re a huge Ferrari fan and want to bring them more glory that their current Formula One season is set to yield, with the team at +2800 in the F1 betting to win the Constructors’ Championship, you can race until you earn enough credits to buy a Ferrari that you can customize into a great car for drifting, as shown by the video of the Ferrari 458 Speciale below:

The best way to start your drifting adventure on Forza Horizon 4 is to select a real-wheel-drive car at a reasonable price, such as the 1997 Mazda RX-7, fine-tune it, adjust the assists, and then hit the open road to hone your skills. Then, it’s onto the race meets to obliterate your foes and earn huge credit hauls. Best of all, while driving around in free roam, you earn points for great drifting and drift chains.

The driving experience in Forza Horizon 4 is unrivaled in the current game market and is yet another great step forward for driving game fans and the Xbox-exclusive franchise.
