Though it’s hailed as a reboot, Forza Motorsport still delivers the kind of deep racing action we’ve come to expect from this series since it debuted nearly 20 years ago. Not only does the game have over 500 cars (including the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette E-Ray and the 2023 No.01 Cadillac Racing V-Series.R), but they can now be damaged in more detail, or mechanically customized with over 800 performance upgrades (including ballast adjustment). Even the tracks have more detail, as surface temperatures are now dynamic, and thus can impact how well (or badly_ your tires grip the track. As for modes, the game boasts a full slate of online races, as well as a revamped career mode called Builders Cup, which combines elements of the career modes from Forza Motorsport 3 and 4 with the progression of a role-playing game for a compelling single player challenge.
