  • Varied regions, better with weather
  • Looks and performs great on Xbox One X
  • Hundreds of cars
  • Driving mechanics are refined
  • Easy to pick up, but with depth
  • Less demanding PvP multiplayer
  • Deep co-op support
  • EventLab is promising
  • Diverse character creator
  • Bad
  • Lack of innovation
  • Iterative update
  • Horizon Arcade is hit-and-miss
  • Expedition collectibles are meh

Forza Horizon 5 opts for that old adage: if it's not broken, don't fix it. England-based game developer Playground Games, which has made every entry of the ever-improving Forza Horizon racing franchise since its inception more than nine years ago, doesn't mess with the formula that it delivered upon and honed over time on its predecessor. Forza Horizon 5 is a lot like Forza Horizon 4, which is not a bad thing. The series' fifth chapter — available November 5 to premium customers, and November 9 for everyone else — is an iterative update. It's not trying to reinvent the wheel. Cynics will complain about lack of game innovation: asset reuse, copy-paste, and old wine in a new country. But that says more about the racing game industry that we will get to in a while.
