GSY Review Xbox Series X PC Xbox One

The Ultimate edition of Forza Horizon 5 will be available tomorrow but the standard edition won't be before November 9. Thankfully, we were given a head's start as we were sent a code about a week ago. This time we didn't have the time to make an English video review and we preferred to take a close look at all the different versions we were able to play (basically all except for the Xbox Series S one) and tell you about it in a dedicated video. Hopefully, you'll appreciate the effort.

Top notch, indeed! Thank you very much for the detailed comparison. I am already excited to see GT7 but my guess is it will look a bit inferior compared to FH5 especially the offtrack details. The rooms in the large buildings of Tokyo are simply empty witout any objects beside the lamps. This is also visible in the latest trailers of GT7. It's moaning on a high level I know so I am sure both games will look really nice :)

Thanks for the coverage. The game looks gorgeous and Gamersyde's quality does the game's visuals justice.

Waiting for Halo Infinite to come out and maybe wait a week or two for the biggest issues to be ironed out before re-subscribing to Game Pass again.

Tip: For new Game Pass subscribers, if you get Discord Nitro, you get 2 months of Game Pass for free - not actually free, but everyone gets the gist. This is a great deal when compared to subscribing to Game Pass, as in my region, 1 month of Discord Nitro is half the price of 1 month of Game Pass. Plus you get 2 months instead of 1, so 1/4 of the price for the deal. More details about this offer in the official Discord blog link below:

After playing about 6 hours in performance mode I switched to the quality mode.The pop in from the tree textures was to irritating.The first minutes in the quality mode feels some kind of strange after the performance mode. But I got used to it short after and finished my way to the hall of fame. I prefer the quality mode now.

The game is really great but there are some downsides as well. I had a lot of connection problems an there where a hand full of bugs. And I don't like the new user experience from the menus.
