Forza Motorsport 7 Review

With over 30 tracks, hundreds of impressively rendered cars, and a robust and option-rich single player campaign (not to mention endless single, one-off races), Forza 7 has to represent the current apex of the racing sim. While it isn't a decisive leap forward from Forza 6, neither is it a step back. The cars just get better looking, the handling more precise, and the overall experience more comprehensive and immersive. I can't wait to try it on the Xbox One X.

Gears of War 4

Doubtless the best looking Gears game to date, Gears of War 4 is one of the most visually impressive games on the Xbox One, period (and yes, I am one of those who think that graphics matter). While the combat is familiar, it is also fine-tuned and polished for maximum challenge and enjoyment, whether in the multiplayer modes, or plowing through the campaign alone.

Quantum Break

I think the best way I can describe Quantum Break is that it's a game that I never felt compelled to come back to. I never got invested in the experience; when I sat down to play I always enjoyed myself, but I never found any part of Quantum Break to be all that satisfying. It's obvious that some masterful developers put this game together but the game lacks the intangible grab that truly great games have. Quantum Break for me ends up being a middle of the road third-person action game with some pretty spectacular ideas with shaky execution.

Halo 5: Guardians

Halo 5: Guardians obviously isn’t meant to be played for its by the numbers campaign. If your love for Halo falls strictly within the realm of its multiplayer, then prepare yourself for a grand old time.

Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious

Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast and Furious is a fun take on simulation driving. It features all of the tuning possibilities of a racing sim but the physics and controls are more of a sandbox arcade racer style. It's a match made in heaven. Although this expansion is short and skimpy on features, it's still fun and I had a great time to playing through it.
