In Forza Motorsport 4, the premier Xbox driving sim returns to race around 360 tracks with enhanced graphics, a more diverse selection of cars, and support for Kinect natural-motion controls. As in previous Forza games, detailed physics models re-create the power and handling characteristics of different cars in different conditions, to provide hardcore enthusiasts with a realistic driving experience. With various optional driver-assist features, casual players can compete as well. Motion tracking allows players to look left or right in the game by turning their heads. Kinect players can also choose to steer with hand motions. Forza 4 incorporates a new lighting system and adds camera angle options.
Meticulously re-created automobiles from more than 80 manufacturers are available, although many of the most coveted cars must be unlocked for play. The game's World Tour mode allows players to drive to the top of an international auto racing career. Other modes and racing styles are available, including autocross and drift. Xbox Live Gold players can race online against rivals, even when they are not on at the same time. Car Clubs and custom-car sharing also return. Previous players can import credits and gifted cars from their Forza 3 save files. Forza Motorsport 4 was developed by Microsoft's Turn 10 Studio, creators of previous games in the series.
