Over the past decade, Forza Horizon hasn’t just grown to be the premier open world arcade racer series, it’s become one of the landmark technical showcases for what the Xbox series of consoles can do.

Well, to put it simply, Playground Games has absolutely knocked this one out of the park. The game either looks incredible, runs impeccably at a fixed performance target, or… both!
