Agreed. Phone + racing game is usually pretty shit.

Off-topic but on another note @Catphish,

Giphy changed some things. To post a Gif from there now without the siders and pop-ups go to media and copy the social link, then post it here as an image.


I feel obligated to at least try anything with the Forza name. Forza Horizon such a great series
I'll try it, but I've tried pretty much every Android and iOS racer to date and I've enjoyed none of them. Some have been passable or at most better than the typical gatcha phone games. The characters alone are already terribad.

I'll give it a try. Usually don't bother with mobile games but if it's on PC and it's free....

I love the Horizon series, and I've been playing the Forza Motorsport series since I removed my Gran Turismo blinders and realised other racing games can also be good. In all those games I've found a few things to complain about but generally love them. One of my biggest gripes has been the garbage "characters" in the Horizon series that constantly talk to you over your headset with horribly written, wooden dialogue. If there was a way, I'd turn them all off and just be some fucking loner finding barn finds and winning races without a bunch of shit eaters audibly sucking my dick every time I go through a speed trap or drift /rant.



Now I'll go try it before I shit on it any more.

This is not a "racing game", it's a running cinema scene with cars in it.



The game looks good enough for a mobile based game but you don't even steer your car at all. it's left click for gas, release for brake. Turns are marked where to release and gas it, so unless you're blind I can't see how you'd mess up a corner.

I tried losing a race, it wasn't happening, the AI car I was racing against pretty much just stopped and waited for me to catch up.

The game throws one trick at you though, you can right click to use boost, that's right, TWO BUTTONS!

This will make a fine, coffee break diversion for a week or so.

Mobile racing can be good. Need for Speed was good a few years ago. Asphalt is a great long running series despite some god awful MT shit.

Forza could have done something cool for mobile, but MS just went out and renamed an existing game into Forza Street though.

The problem with mobile racers is that they are made for touchscreens and gyro steering setups. The Asplhalt series is long running now at #9, but the game assists to such a degree you're barely the one controlling anything.

I always thought MS could have used mobile devices as "shops" for the Motorsport and Horizon games. basically a garage based setting where you can tune and modify your garage cars from the game that would allow you to mess around with tuning on your lunch break, and try the tune when you get home.

I'm overly harsh on mobile games I suppose, but I do think it's fair to say the best mobile racing games would rank near the bottom of the list of console/pc racers.

I will say the visuals in this are better than I expected, and I wouldn't mind seeing tracks similar to this in the Motorsport franchise. FM has fuck all for city tracks now, and they had one of the best at one point with New York. They really should have brought it back when they started implementing TOD and weather effects.

Just so you know, its not like only Microsoft does this. So, lets not go Console wars feeling entitled. Unlike Blizzard they didnt announce it in X0, E3, Inside Xbox or any Xbox event.

This is the title that turned the Fate franchise into a boring milked crap and I slowly lost interest(Heavens Feel will be the last Fate I will watch).

Nobody minds that they made a mobile Forza, just that they seem to have made a pretty shitty one. This game is not a benefit to the franchise in any way. I've given it a couple hours to be fair, but I see nothing of any real value. At least Fate, despite the gatcha shit, has some actual gameplay mechanics implemented and some degree of strategy is involved in he gameplay. Forza Street is a racing game that fails on the racing front, then fails even worse with the terrible story they've strapped to it.
