If you decide to purchase the Xbox One this Holiday season, Forza Motorsport 5 needs to be on your Christmas list. Forza is an exclusive launch title for the new Microsoft machine. The Forza franchise has always been one my favorite racing game franchises. It gives the hardcore gamer a very challenging and realistic outlet. Yet it also gives the casual gamer a less difficult gameplay option while remaining fun.
If you thought the Forza franchise was as realistic as it can get for a racing game then you are in for a treat. Forza 5 takes realism to a whole new level in the genre. It takes advantage of the Xbox One‘s next-gen hardware and a new graphics engine created exclusively for Microsoft gaming. The new engine offers rendering of physically-based materials. This helps recreate real-life characteristics of many unique materials we encounter in the game. A realistic damage modeling system will show every dent or scratch on the automobiles. This game is so detailed that even the racing venues will build up debris from damaged vehicles.
Forza 5 on Xbox One requires players to connect to the internet atleast once per day. While using the cloud technology, this game will deliver the most realistic feeling for a racing game that current gen consoles can not handle. The cloud will learn and adapt to how you and your friends drive. Eventually the AI will be able to mimic real human behavior. The Drivatar technology will constantly evolve your opponents intelligence as their skills progress or regress. Another cool factor is that even when you are not at your Xbox One, the cloud can participate in races for you. You could be at work and the AI is earning you real victories and points based on your race history.
