Forza Horizon 3
Top Critic Average
Playground Games' series has never been a more triumphant standard-bearer for racing games as pure, escapist entertainment.
The best Forza Horizon is now one of the best racing games on PC. Vast, varied and lots of fun.
Forza Horizon 3 is a masterclass in open-world racing and bigger and better than its excellent predecessor across the board. It looks fantastic, the car selection and customisation is second to none, and the size and variety of the sprawling Australian outback is magnificent. Above all, Horizon 3 never loses sight of the fact that tearing through postcard-perfect locations should be fun, and it puts the tools in our hands to keep it that way, always. This is the racing game I’ve been waiting for, and it's officially my favourite thing on four wheels. A fair dinkum triumph, mates.
The best Forza Horizon so far, and thanks to its huge open world and infectious sense of fun one of the best arcade racers of the current gen.
A superbly-produced, feature-rich racing game. Too much of it may feel like busywork and filler, but few other racers are this slick or feature-packed, and it certainly has moments of magic.
The Horizon series has been fun up to this point, but this entry stands above the others with its excellent open world and rewarding customization. It’s easily the best racer of this generation
From brand-building to a relentless reward system, this fast and friendly driving adventure in Australia has it all.
Forza 3 Horizon is as beautiful as it is engaging
Horizon 3 doesn't make dramatic changes to the formula, meaning it's a beautiful and pleasant experience that's best experienced at a somewhat leisurely pace.
