    Thank God amazon is selling download codes, I won't pay 70 EUR in the Windows store for the standard edition. Bastards.

    Yeah, just paid 40 with prime for the PC/Xbox download code. Can't complain, the price per gigabyte of data is very good for a new release!

    @Malek86 Yeah I mean based on videos I've seen I can appreciate why the download is so huge. But jeez 100GB+ (with future patches and DLC probably closer to 120GB).

    I never played a 'normal' Forza game apart from Forza 2 (I think) on a friend's XBox, and currently owning Forza Horizon 3 on PC - hands down the best (and prettiest) simcade racer I ever played on any platform.

    @KD thanks for the heads up on the demo. Might give it a try then via HDD install and see how it performs.

    I've played Forza 5, but eventually sold it back because it was boring me to death. Granted, everyone agrees it's the worst in the series, and the lack of content didn't help either - something which Forza 7 should rectify.

    However, I could pick up 6 today for like ten bucks at the local store. 7 will have to be something special for me to go for it instead.

    @Malek86 You play on XBO then right? On PC there's only a lite version of 6 so 7 would be the first proper Forza game other than Horizon.

    Also hoping that the game will play well with a wheel - Horizon is too arcadey (with some, now bearable, input lag) so I tend to play that with a pad - but would expect 7 to be on the sim side of things.

    @Malek86 Forza 5 has many, many problems which render it by far the most boring instalment in the series. The biggest, by some way, are the lack of tracks and the miniscule cash-rewards from races (which mandates either repeating tournaments to grind, or else purchasing DLC currency). The handling model is also kind of broken in 5.

    I'd expect to get significantly more playtime from any other entry in the series. 6 had a significantly better track-list and in-game economy. I was a little disappointed by the track-list for 7, but it's still an advance on 6's (and a whole world better than 5's).

    I was really hoping to see some of the "fantasy" tracks from the earlier instalments in the series brought back; the likes of Fujimi Kaido and Cote d'Azur. Those were often more interesting to drive than the "real world" tracks, but motorsports purism seems to be the in thing at the moment, so I guess they have to sit this one out.

    Edit: Ooops, just noticed Maple Valley is back. Would still rather have had Fujimi Kaido, but Maple Valley is still very welcome indeed.

    Hmmmm... That Amazon download code is a nice price. I'll have that. I was kinda on the fence about getting it this time around but sure, why not?

    Got to make room myself but FH3 seemed fine on a normal drive so hoping this is better anyway as it not open world.

    The size of pc instal isnt helped when you need to install it twice if another account on your pc wants to play it, currently have FH3 installed on another user account aswell as my own, spent a good few hours in online adventures with a mate here on my xbox but because of XBL sharing we got I'm juggling logins between them.

    Yeah I have FH3 installed on my SSD as my understanding is this helps with the constant streaming of scenery. I'm playing on medium settings @ 30fps... hoping due to the nature of F7 I can achieve 60fps as I want to use my wheel. Glad there's a demo for me to test both, although FH3 released in a dire state so hope this won't be the case here again.

    Debating getting this. My last purchased one other than the Horizon series was 4. I did download 5 this month, Games with Gold and I'm so disappointed it is so very, very bland.

    From what I remember of the demos of FM4 and FM6, I must admit that 4 seemed more fun to me. I don't know why. Maybe I'd be better off buying that instead.

    It still looks fairly good today, too.

    @Malek86 FM4 is less "motorsportsy" than FM6 and hence takes itself a little less seriously. Personally, I found FM4 a better game as a result.

    But the current trend in racing games is very much towards the hardcore motorsports end of the spectrum. Largely driven, I suspect, by Project Cars and Asetto Corsa, as well as by the Gran Turismo's adoption of ever more hardcore trappings. I'd personally like it if the Forza series could stay a bit more in that middle-ground between arcade and sim, which 4 managed pretty much perfectly.

    Are you getting that from Amazon.de? When I try to buy a download code from Amazon UK, it says I have to be in the UK. I'm not.

    FM4 was the 3rd one for the 360 like this is 3rd for this gen, hope they got enough content like most of you guys are saying.

    I had that Amazon code ordered, anyone know when to expect it? On the day of release I guess.

    @SYS64738 After the big pc patch for FH3 I went from 30fps to unlocked frame rate, modest pc myself with silly resolution but seemed a lot more responsive and smooth still.

    Bizarrely I apparently do not have the required version of Win 10. Not sure how, I seem to be up to date.

    @KD Yeah, unlocked I would achieve something around 40ish frames but I find a stable 30 better than something inbetween 30 & 60.

    There's also an option in the settings that has a direct impact on input lag (pre-rendered frames or something like that?), setting that to the lowest option minimises (but does not eliminate) input lag.

    It's very playable though and I logged dozens of hours in it since. Fantastic game, and I hope F7 follows suit.

    @neems Are they going to do that thing again where the game won't work without a Windows Update that hits just before the game launches? They did that with FH3 and Anniversary Update.

    Though when I looked at the weekend, it seemed content with my Win10 version.

    @Rogueywon

    I'll see what it says when they release the demo, it'll be a bit strange if nobody can play because Windows isn't up to date.

    So this thread tells me to just delete Forza Freebie without having even played it.

    Shame.

    FM4 was excellent, played for ages. Skipped 5 as when I got a xbox one 6 was just coming out and played it for about 2 weeks then sold it on ebay. It looked nice but it was just more of the same and they still have not fixed the boring repetitive nature of repeating tracks in single player. I got 5 on GwG and its launch game it has less of single player than 6.

    Hoping 7 has good single player element but I bet its "and now we going to brands hatch" then "and now we going to some other fucking track"

    I lost interest in Forza over the years as it's become clear they aren't interested at all in the Motorsport part of the title name.

    No ability to set up offline custom races, a career mode that's all overtake random slow shit, go last to first in 3 laps, etc.

    looks nice, feels good but no content that i'm interested in :(

    Hmm. First the luke warm Project Cars 2 review and now reading this.. (as I have no experience with the Forza MS series as such) Both are contenders, not sure now. Seen some gameplay of PC2 which looked pretty fun. While Forza 7 seems more style over substance?

    Not sure really what to do. Maybe PC2 might get the nod after all if the AI and driving model (wheel) are good enough - plus it's cheaper and on Steam. Using Assetto mostly as hotlap simulator so wouldn't mind some more varied racing action to complement it.

    I really can't bring myself to care for hardcore racing games, so chances are that FM7 will stay on the shelf, just like FM6.

    Oh, we really need a new PGR. But the success of Dirt Rally is probably going to turn the already niche market to the opposite direction.
