As I continue to play a lot over the last 24 hours, i’m finding that this menu system is really exhausting. Trying to remember how many times you had to press A to get from menus to racing in the previous games, and Forza Motorsport 2023 feels like significantly more button presses? Additionally, the menus are just visually exhausting to look at, and feel slow. Forza Horizon 5 had a similar problem with too many button presses to get anything done, but they were so visually pleasing to look at that I didn’t really recognize it or care.
wow I disagree. I thought the last several forza games UI was way too busy. There was crap everywhere and it was not straight forward on where to go for what. and the uneven sized squares made navigating the menus difficult.
I think the new UI is clean and much more straight forward.
Maybe i’m just having a rose tinted glasses moment here, but nothing felt better than Forza Motorsport 4. I would rather Turn-10 just continue to reuse that every game.
Ain’t no rose tint there. It’s no secret that I really didn’t like FM4, but I’d definitely take its UI over FM7’s in a heartbeat. I haven’t had hands on with the new FM yet, as I’m waiting for the regular release date, but the UI is where my expectations are lowest based on how it’s “evolved” over the last several games.
