Forza Motorsport 4

Forza Motorsport 4
Forza Motorsport 4 is a racing simulation game developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox 360. It is the fourth installment in the Forza Motorsport series, and was released in North America on October 11, 2011. It is the first title in the series to support the Kinect sensor alongside the traditional controller-based game-play. New to the series is the Autovista mode, a mode in which players can view precise details such as engine parts and interior gauges on a selected number of cars. It features a partnership with BBC's Top Gear as well as its American counterpart Jeremy Clarkson - host for Top Gear which provides commentary in the game's Autovista mode. Other partnerships include a two year agreement with the American Le Mans Series (ALMS). Over 500 cars and 26 tracks are included. Like Sony's Gran Turismo franchise, Forza games are racing simulations; heavy emphasis is placed on making the cars drive and look as realistic as possible.

Advantages of Forza Motorsport 4
  • Kinect Sensor support – Players can utilize Kinect to look into a corner using a new head-tracking feature. This allows them to look toward the apex of a corner or at nearby cars. The controller or steering wheel is used to control the car while Kinect is used independently for viewing around the driver. Players can also use Kinect as a game controller. In this setting the game automatically accelerates and decelerates the player's vehicle utilizing a modified version of the feature known as Auto Brake in Forza Motorsport 3. The steering is controlled by placing the player’s arms out as if controlling an invisible steering wheel. Kinect will allow the player to use voice commands to start races and navigate menus.
  • Autovista mode – New to the Forza series is a feature known as Autovista. It is designed to allow players to walk around and explore inside cars. This feature allows players to view minute details such as brake pads, engine components, and interior details. The player can point at certain features, such as headlights, wheels and the engine for further information about them via audio recording. Only 24 cars in the game support the Autovista feature, as it is primarily for sports cars, classic cars, and dream cars. The graphics used to create these cars are formed using image-based lighting which allowed the developers to create perfect reflections, and would immerse the car in the environment both when racing on a track or in the garage or Top Gear studio when viewing a car.
Disadvantages of Forza Motorsport 4
  • Does not support HDMI output - Forza Motorsport 4 does not support HDMI output even though the Xbox 360 has an HDMI port, only analog signals can be received. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a new technology which transmits uncompressed audio and video signals over a very low-resistance wire – thus providing super-realistic sounds and ultra-crisp graphics.

What makes Forza Motorsport 4 a really good racing simulation game compared to others
Forza Motorsport 4 is indeed a game to be reckoned with especially to Sony’s ever-loved Gran Turismo Series. Like many other excellent racing simulators, Forza Motorsport 4 is available for consoles only (Xbox 360). This gives the game fans a fair gaming experience by using standard Xbox 360 consoles. Games available for PC can have compatibility issues and hardware requirements. This makes console games very reliable because they give uniform output together with other Xbox 360 consoles. The result is a game-play with uniform opinions from players. Forza Motorsport 4 also features online play through the use of Xbox’s online Ethernet attachment. Game developers of Forza also used real-life cars to record the exact tire sounds used in the game. The Forza Motorsport 4 series also has racetracks patterned from real life. These are the Hockenheimring racing circuit, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Infineon Raceway – which is also found in Need for Speed’s Prostreet Series.
