Okay been playing Forza 7 from the 1st minute it released in the U.K. And pretty much haven’t stopped, I’m actually starting to forget what my kids look like as I’ve been so engrossed in it, anyway after several hours of playing I’ve noticed a few issues that really could do with being rectified:
1- MIRROR SHAKE, who on earth came up with this idea needs SHOT! Now I can understand the interior mirror shaking a tiny bit, but the external mirrors shake like they are in an earthquake, the wobble on the M4 is RIDICULOUS!! It’s getting to the stage now where I’m feeling myself being drawn to watching mirror wobble and not where I’m actually going!
2- LIGHTS, why oh why do the rear lights appear on in a wet race but the headlights are off?!? We really need an option for turning headlights on in races. I did a race yesterday in the rain and I couldn’t see a thing as their were no headlights, next race it was bright and sunny, my headlights were ON?!? This needs to be sorted.
3- GYMKHANA FOCUS, again the mirror shake is terrible, which annoyed me more on this car as they have went to the hassle of implementing shakey mirrors and wipers but haven’t bothered to emulate the driver shifting gear? I genuinely thought this car was paddle shift as the driver doesn’t reach for the sequential shifter, but nope, I watched the drivers hand and no movement for paddle shift either.
4- HOMOLIGATION, I’m really not feeling the new car performance system, I prefer the old PI system, that’s just my personal preference tho.
However it isn’t all bad from me, I personally LOVE the new career mode, it’s actually forced me to drive a lot of cars that in previous Forza’s I would have avoided like the plague.
At first I wasn’t keen on the way you need to collect cars to improve tier level etc, but it is actually making me want to play to move up levels and so far has kept me in career mode instead of my usual “career is boring me after 10 mins now, lets play free play”.
All in all, I am relatively happy with the game, if the few niggles mentioned above were sorted I would be happy as a pig in the proverbial.
Again this is just what I’m feeling so far,
Thanks for reading.
