The recently-released "Forza Horizon 3" game for the PS4 showed that it may be the best car racing game in the market to date. With its impressive landscapes, creative takes on the most adored sports cars today, and its unique game features, it is regarded as a well-loved game among Xbox and PC players.

Unique Features

"Forza Horizon 3" stands out from games similar to its features mainly because of its expansive take on racing features. Although the traditional way to frame an automobile game is letting the players modify the cars like how "Need For Speed" is played, the "Forza Horizon 3" team pushed the limits to improve the gaming experience. They personally went to Australia and took pictures of the best landscapes incorporated into the game. They also made sure that the scenery complimented the cars perfectly as well.

How Does The Game Play Out?

"Forza Horizon 3" itself has unique features that make the fans lock their eyes on screen. The game starts off at Byron Bay, a beautifully-landscaped tourist spot in Australia where the players have the option to organize their very own grand festival reveling car culture while being complemented with exciting music.

The players' goal is to expand the festival and generate popularity in the car scene my upgrading their vehicles and driving tricks. Every time a "Forza Horizon" player wins a race, they will gain fans in the franchise that would want to attend their festival. In fact, the game also gives the players an opportunity to race against the best Drivatars and hire them in festivals. The better the players are selected, the larger the festival audience, reported iDigital Times.

The Awesome Cars

As reported by Tech Times, the "Forza Horizon 3" game captured the car culture by curating only 350 cars into the franchise. It also incorporated impressive updates to what the 2016 Ariel Nomad off-roader and 1970 Bruce Meyers dune buggy are capable of doing in the real world. In fact, it also featured the Lamborghini Centenario and the 1987 Ferrari F40 and magnified why its speed capacity has captured car enthusiasts' interest over the years.
