NOTE: This is for the PC Version
Let me start off with the good. I really like the graphics. The cars feel like they have good weight to them and the environment feels pretty real. The menus are really nice (apart from not being able to escape from the first and second race and get back to the menu) but overall, it’s a really nicely done well rounded game.
That being said, you’re handling is horrid. It’s honestly what turned me off from Forza games in the first place because it doesn’t feel real. I own a 2015 STI and I drive it every day. I know exactly how it handles. At 45MPH, I should not be skidding or sliding my tires in the least bit, yet in Forza, simply taking a 90 degree turn at 45 will not only make you skid and possibly over steer, but it will also whip back into the turn sometimes making you spin out (especially if you’re playing without driving Assists).
I tried turning off Stability control and assisted braking/steering as well as getting rid of the lines. I’m coming from playing F1 2011-2015 where it’s VERY unforgiving about going around a corner at too high of a speed even if you’re doing under 50MPH, but at least when I go around a corner there, it sticks like it should because the Gforces aren’t letting the car act as though it were driving on a piece of ice.
It seems that all the tires in FM6A are made of plastic, and when they get heated up too much, they turn into food trays and let you drift around in circles.
Idk guys… It can’t possibly be that difficult to give the game the grip that it deserves. Even on the intro mission, in the new Ford GT, you almost don’t have enough grip to hold the inside lines that you should be able to without using the people you’re passing that are on the outside, as a guardrail to push against.
One other thought while I’m thinking about it. While driving the Second mission in the rain in the Golf R. While I was slipping and sliding all over the place and barely maintaining corners sometimes, my opponents doing the same speed as I was, were holding inside lines and passing me at higher speeds. If I increased my speed, I’d be in the dirt or in the rocks. This is grade A BS and you know it. The AI should never be able to do more than you with the same tools at their disposal giving them an unfair advantage.
All that being said. Thanks for the demo, it was somewhat fun seeing my car in a 3D rendering… but… it’s just not real.
I’m gonna go outside and drive my real one now… and enjoy the traction it offers. Cheers.
