If you’re a regular player of Turn 10’s racing games, your first reaction to Forza Motorsport 7 is likely to be: what’s new? After a rare stumble with the slender and skittish fifth game, this most consistent of series hit its confident stride again with the highly polished Forza Motorsport 6, and you’re forced to wonder what this sequel could really bring to the table. The initial impression is: not much.
Forza 6’s most beneficial changes are present and correct. The career mode is once again a thoughtfully curated journey. A series of championships each offer a number of racing divisions to choose from, themed with a fine eye for every corner of motorsport culture and car design – racing trucks, vintage Grand Prix, early hot hatches and so on – plus a few dramatic one-off ‘showcase’ events as palate cleansers.
It’s still a game built from a relatively monotonous grind of one-size-fits-all circuit races, but the showcases do just enough to mix things up, while the racing divisions are consistently varied and enticing. At every stage, you’re able to choose from a range of cups that spans classic and modern, motorsport and production, humble and exotic, quick and very quick. This isn’t a game where you’ll be waiting a long time to try out the most rarefied hardware, but it’s also not one to undersell the appeal of chucking a cheap hatchback around a tight corner.
