Let me start by saying that I was a big fan of previous Forza games and would look forward to playing the game to its completion, unlocking all of the games various high level cars.
This game, while graphically stunning lacks much of the appeal of the previous games. The developers have become too tight on the cash rewarded (no doubt to force the player to use real cash to buy a car) , which forces you to spend days getting though tedious and boring races with inferior AI, just so you can get enough in game cash to buy a single high performance car. When you do get into some of the higher priced vehicles the race setup of the vehicles are horrible, with little to no downforce and weak performance parts like tires and handling. Ultimately, it I pay $60 for a game, I don't feel that I should be nickle and dimed to get a car that actually works. What is this, a mobile game?
The multiplayer was one of the best aspects of the earlier games, and this has also been made worse, by letting the system auto match nearly every aspect of the match making. You seem to wait forever (10 minutes in some cases) to be matched to an online game that pairs your skill level with your choice of cars.
Overall, you may need a race fix, and until something better comes along you might give this a chance, but you will become bored after you race through it's limited track selection once.

It got everything you want in a racing game. It got great cars, great tracks, the engine sound freaking sexy, and last but not least the freaking graphics are beast. The game is a little repetitive though.
