Microtransactions Suck! - Game Rocks

Graphics, game, and play are very well done.

The fact that I'm asked at every turn to spend real money on cars and "tune up" upgrades is a major FAIL!

$60 for the game, $50 for car pass, $20 for VIP (highly recommend to level up faster) Then you want $10 - $100 for "tokens" forget it.

I will "Grind" my way through the game to get the cars I want.. But man, its a grind.

Otherwise, great game.. Sorry they are such greedy fooks..

Very Good

Great game, but gets extremely repetitive

This is a great game if you enjoy racing and/or cars. The graphics and sound are amazing, and driving "feel" is decent. But with only 14 tracks, things get repetitive really quickly. Also, just getting the game itself gets you a limited set of cars. I got the Day One edition for $80, which came with some car packs, a gifted E21 Lotus (cool!), tokens, etc., but if you want to own a variety of cars in the game, it'll costs some pretty serious $$$, tokens or in-game "credits". You can drive any car in the game, though, by "renting" (which is free) it in the Free Play feature, so there's that. Do I wish it cost less? Yes. Am I still enjoying it a lot? Yes.

This game is visually stunning and contains the most realistic physics than any other racing game. The car's detail is pinpointed down to every last drop of paint. There are some drawbacks though that makes it not worth buying. There are much fewer tracks than in Forza 4 which can make the game lose replay value. Also, you have to pay for all the cars with xp you rack up, even in free play. I wouldn't have minded having to earn money, but when it comes to freeplay, you can't be serious to not let us use all the cars. As a result, I highly recommend renting the game, but you probably won't want to buy it given it's low replay value.
