Forza Motorsport is the eighth installment of a bestselling racing game series originating from 2005. Like the previous installments, it was developed by Turn 10 Studios and published by Microsoft.


Forza Motorsport has the player participate in races all around the globe. The track roster includes some returning locations, such as Maple Valley, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Laguna Seca Raceway, as well as some entirely new tracks, such as the South African Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit and the Japanese Circuit Hakone. Players can drive various vehicles, including exotic super-fast cars, more common sports cars and some vehicular legends in its own right, Cars can be modified cosmetically and mechanically.

The developers did their best to make each race feel as realistic as possible. All the tracks and cars were created from scratch, the time of day and the weather change during the race, the physics have also been improved; factors such as asphalt temperature, rainfall, rubber compound used in tires and tire wear all affect traction. Players must now also manage fuel. Cars can still be damaged during races, the damages remaining significant.

Game modes

Forza Motorsport supports singleplayer and multiplayer.

Technical aspects

Yet another aspect Forza Motorsport created anew from scratch are its visuals. Compared to the previous game, this one stands out primarily due to ray tracing, providing realistic reflections on windows and cars. The game overall is much more detailed. Vehicles suffer realistic damages during races, ranging from minor scratches to clearly visible dents. Yet another new detail is that cars get progressively filthier during the race.
