The biggest racer of the year is also one of the best games we've played in the last 12 months. Buckle up for the drive of your life...

Races are varied and spectacular

With series staples such as Road Racing, Cross-Country, Dirt Racing, and Street Racing, every drive in Horizon 5 is exhilirating. 

Forza's take on Mexico is utterly stunning

We can't stop marveling at the way light bounces off the bonnet of our car as we drive through the colorful streets of Mexico. The game is a technical triumph. 

Car handling is smooth and responsive

We can't overstate how good FH5 feels to drive. Throughout all the races and expeditions it's always a pleasure to be behind the wheel. 

There's a wealth of settings and customization options

With the return of tuning, you can once again make the car of your dreams.A slight update to livery customization makes it even easier to add decals, too. 

Horizon's Stories add welcome flavor

Horizon Stories bring you closer to certain aspects of Mexican culture and the game's regions. They provide a great break away from standard races.
