Just enough newness to make it worth playing, and it remains the most complete, enjoyable package for NASCAR fans.

WRC 8 is fun, it's challenging, and it's frustrating, and with that license in tow, it's a great play for rally fans the world over.
One of the most fun things you'll play all year. If you needed an excuse to get back into Forza Horizon 4, this is it.
This game is a masterpiece.
F1 2018, just as with last year's game, is a game worthy of your attention and something fans of the franchise will love. It's stunning to look at, excellent fun to drive in, and the single-player mode has more than enough depth to keep keener players entertained.

A famous name in need of fresh ideas
If you like your motorsport sideways and dirty, you'll probably enjoy WRC 7 on the Xbox One.
This might only be for serious Rugby fans, but it's well executed to the point you can almost feel the mud on your face.
The truth is that yes, Forza 7 is an evolution of Forza 6. But Forza 6 was virtually faultless. Forza 7 is bigger, the single-player mode is more engaging to play, and the dynamic weather alone adds an entirely new dimension to the gameplay. It has hundreds of more cars than two years ago. Hundreds.
F1 2017 is a thoroughly enjoyable, deeply engrossing experience that both fans and newcomers will enjoy.

If you were expecting Minecraft but with Legos, you'll probably be a little disappointed. The game lacks the ultimate freedom you find there but covers everything with oodles of Lego charm and personality. Lego Worlds is fun to play, that's for sure, but the longevity aspect will potentially be linked to how old you are.
As if it was in much doubt, Forza Horizon 3 is one of the finest games you'll find on the Xbox One right now. It's so incredible to look at, so beautifully crafted and so enjoyable to play that there are literally hundreds of hours of fun to be had here. Maybe more than that once additional content comes along.
