While I'll always gravitate to Timeless FM for some transcendent classical tune-age, almost every musical taste is catered for on the in-game radio (kudos for the inclusion of personal faves QOTSA and Jack White), and all of the requisite engine noises and such are excellent. The achingly trendy Horizon Festival folks do chatter a little too much, though.
The Forza Horizon games never disappoint in the looks department, and number 4 is no different in that regard. A showcase for the graphical horsepower that the Xbox One (particularly the X) is capable of, Horizon 4 makes the UK look like a pastoral wonderland.
Never anything less than an unbridled joy to play, all bases are covered for racing aficionados of all levels, with a variety of options, assists and settings to tailor the experience. Crucially, Forza Horizon 4 is just insanely good fun and infinitely playable.
Polished to a startling degree with 450 ludicrously detailed cars in its garage, eye-wateringly gorgeous expanses, more modes, options, events and race disciplines than you can shake a gearstick at, Horizon 4 is the complete package. No complaints here.
Dialling back the grind, FH4's achievement list goes for spread rather than longevity, although reaching level 200 won't exactly happen overnight. The achievements encourage putting the time in and exploring, but not to an insurmountable degree.
