Forza Motorsport 7 is more focused than its predecessor on track racing with more cars, tracks and better sound and graphics. For 4K resolution, one must have the XBox One X console.
Career mode has been updated considerably and the menu system is also new. The cars are also divided into categories so that you can compete in the same class. Unfortunately, it is tricky in free games to choose cars and there are some bugs. Background music and "garage sounds" are annoying and worse than in the predecessors. A dancing man in the menu dressed as "The Stage" is also ridiculous and annoying. Overall, the game feels more childish than before to suit a wider audience.
Many complain that realism is not as good as other games but if you change the settings you can get a good balance that suits most people. It is still very high level on all cars. The funny thing is that there are many different types of cars, almost 700, and all are of high class. Some of the newer cars are very similar and maybe one lacks more older classics. Really fun that Volvo is also available in all variants from Amazon to S60 Polestar.
The courses are nicely detailed and realistic but unfortunately, half of the courses are from the United States, a number from Asia and only a few from Europe. However, the classic ones come with such as SPA, Nürnburgring, Monza, Valencia, Hockenheim, Le Mans, Brands Hatch and Silverstone. A novelty is Suzuka in Japan which is a diverse technical test track designed by Honda. Also fun that Bathurst in Australia is included. The "corkscrew" on Laguna Seca is also a classic. The test track from Top Gear is also included so you can compare times with the celebrities on the TV couch.
If you already have Forza Motorsport 6, it doesn't feel compelled to upgrade if you don't have the Xbox One X and 4K TV. But for the cargame interested, it is still the most comprehensive and solid racing game with the most courses and cars available for XBox and PC.
