GAME Forza Horizon 5 is easily the best Forza game ever made. Probably the best racing game out now.

boys and girls i think multiplayer is finally working now, did several rounds last night

Although there are matches where waits are much longer, i expect those are the people playing on xbox one

Can you stay in a convoy for more than a few minutes now? Shared waypoints?

There were some games that were normal... but there were games that were bugged out for various reasons.

One game I was the only car moving, then at the end of the race took everyone's overall time and scored it that way

During all night games my vehicle headlights didn't turn on, so I'm racing it the dark

waypoints appeared to be shared from what I could see? but could be wrong

so loosely "working" multiplayer :rofl:

Blows my mind how these big studios will put out games that have glaring issues like this.

:nod: I’m a couple hours into it and it’s 10x better in every way. Graphics, SOUNDS, physics, they really took their time with this one. Haven’t encountered any bugs so far. Excellent game, who else is playing this weekend? :bowdown:
Can you hear the spool of turbos? I stopped playing racing games about 10 years ago but at that point, Gran Turismo 2 on PS2 had the best car sounds :hs:

The entire forzathon/arcade thing is just about worthless.

And the unbeatable driveatars are pretty tough this go around. Never helps that the team is usually full of fucking idiots who can't build a car to save their life. have to rely on youtube for tune codes for whatever race they run.

Thank god. Between the disconnection issues and forzathon being worthless..... I would just turn it off.

I honestly just dislike the consistent addition to any team game. It is rare I get enough buds online to weed out the idiots who can't drive a simulation race car

i haven't bothered learning how to tune, i just quickly look up the best car for an event and then pick the highest rated tune that has a name like "seasonal" or something like that

haven't found a good car for unbeatable road / street races yet but dirt and cross country races are easy on unbeatable using the hot wheels car and the tune that's something like "online god" that has 5 stars

I'll try all the seasonal things on my own first, and if I have troube I've used paperheartzero tunes.

for a dirt race it had an awful lot of actual roads

The achievement popped for me when I had like 5 roads to go, I think I'm missing 2 roads somewhere somehow. I've scoured the map, can't see any ones I missed.

I haven't even really bothered with the bonus board hunting, If I happen to spot one I'll tag it if I dont have to fly to get it.

i looked up the locations of the fast travel boards so i could fast travel for free. some of the ones that it looks like you have to launch yourself to get to can be gotten to by cheesing if they're on a roof by going under a balcony or whatever and then pausing and hitting reposition car and it'll put you on the roof
