After one week of casually playing Forza Motorsport 6
, I thought that I would share my thoughts about the game and my progress thus far. Here we go:

So far I have been very impressed with the gameplay of Forza Motorsport 6
along with the immense selection of cars and tracks to choose from in the game. The Career Mode is split up into two different sections: “Stories of Motorsport” and Showcase Events. The “Stories of Motorsport” segment is where the bulk of the traditional track racing happens. It is broken up into five different volumes: Super Street, Sport Icons, Grand Touring, Professional Racing, and Ultimate Motorsport. It is kind if set up like Forza Horizon 2 in the sense that you have to complete 15 “events” in order to get to the final race of the game. Once you get through the initial 15 events, you are free to race any of the remaining events in each series as you please.

If you are a Forza lover, you know the perks of playing previous games in regards to the rewards you receive when you start a new game on the newest Forza game. To catch everyone up to speed, based on your level in previous Forza games, Forza “Gifts” you free cars and credits. I was a Level 137 in Forza Horizon 2 so I received the following rewards: Nissan GTR R35 Black Edition, Aston Martin V12 Vantage, Jaguar F-Type Coupe, Ford Raptor and 100,000CR! A friend of mine received all of the cars I did along with a Lamborghini Aventador along with 300,000CR! He was above Level 150 on Forza Horizon 2.

Another cool perk they gave was for people who downloaded the demo. I downloaded and completed the entire demo about a week before the game came out and in return they “Gifted” me the BRAND NEW 2017 Ford GT! A very pleasant surprise! I downloaded the demo just to get a look at the game before it came out. I certainly did not think I was going to get rewarded for it! So cool!

There is two things that needs to be addressed with this game.  Number 1: it is WAY too easy to get cars.  Don’t get me wrong, I love getting a Pagani the day I get the game. BUT, getting a Pagani at Level 3 is kind of ridiculous.  I felt no accomplishment in getting it whatsoever.  Number 2:  Races in the rain are IMPOSSIBLE. I love that they added this aspect into the game but they went overboard.  Your car hydroplanes all the time and I find myself hitting the “rewind button” way too much.  I do play with out traction or stable on which does not help in the rain.  Still not deal breakers and I highly recommend this game!

Here is where I stand in the game a mere 10 hours into it:
