When I first saw that Forza 4 was coming out, I was excited, but I didn't know what they could have added to make it better. When I got F4, I was amazed. They completely redid the menus, the leveling (both car and driver) and the storefront. All for the better.
The driving is the same you would expect from the Forza series, great simulation feel, specially when you turn the assists off to make it more realistic. But I'll get down to it

THE GOOD:
The driving
The menu system
The leveling (both cars and driver level)
The graphics on the cars
The world tour gives you more choices for how you want to complete each season.
There are more than 50 driver levels.
The levels for cars are based off of make instead of model

THE BAD
Not as much need to upgrade your cars for each event
Not enough hours in the day to play

If you are a fan of the Forza series, this game is definitely worth the buy. If you are new to the Forza series, but like simulation racing games, this game is worth the buy. (Even more so since there are more assists you can have to help you get used to it)
Definitely a 10 out of 10 from me.

Honestly this is what kids should play with before they get there licenses.

The Realism is astonishing I cant get over the difference from 3 to 4
3 kinda had a lack of grip in the front tires but 4 is much more realistic if you have a force feedback racing wheel its a much better experience i refuse to play this game without it, but in 4za4 your char steers much much much more responsive no more granny steering.

pros
-the sheer detail in every car you can turn the h.u.d off and easily read the gauges and see every little detail.

-you can showroom view your super cars like youve always wanted to.

-in race music unless you like it pure (its actually quite nice)

-rivals section so you can make beating you friends a goal and push each other higher up the leaderboards

-the sounds of the cars are like usual much better from the last the exaust resinates more like a real race car and not like a oem.

-the handling is much more refined it isnt so guess if im getting grip or not in the front wheels

-when you drift in forza 4 your car gets that snapping feel down when your transitioning from on turn to another and your car gets a little vibration when its sliding on poor quality roads which is sick,

-you can race 12 ppl at a time instead of 8.

CONS

- still no rally or offroad racing i understand dirt 3 will feed my need but forza is much more realistic.

- no real city style courses like in test drive unlimited and need for speed so you can have some freedom and creativity.

-would liike to make engine and transmision swaps possible for every car not restricted to just manufactuer.

-its a long shot but who doesnt want to see their car fall apart in a friendly demo derby online could you possibly have that in the next one.

all in all thats about it.

FOR ALL CAR ENTHUSIEST THIS IS A MUST RENT/BUY!

This is one of the Best Racing Games out there for the 360. The Graphics are great the Cars are great the Upgrading is Good. I just have one thing to say that might be considered bad and that is That the AI cars are Racing Line Hogs,they do not like it when they are not right on the racing line and will do just about anything they can to get back on it, that Includes running over your car. I actually Preordered the game so I am Glad it is fun to play. If Your Looking for a Good Racing game for the 360 This would be it
