Title
The best open world game of 2018, literally everything is a pleasure to do without any of the numerous events and collectibles feeling like a chore. As a driving simulation it's tight as hell with gorgeous environments you actively want to explore and see in different seasonal contexts and the game just has such a chill, ingratiating vibe that you never get that sense of being overwhelmed and intimidated by the ridiculous amount of content.

You can also paint anime ladies on your car and visit historical monuments while dabbing in a chicken outfit.

Title
Gets a bad rep, but map is good. Simple and accounts for many playstyles, which is vital for a game model like this. That helps the seasons stand out too. I also found the more intrusive elements suspiciously charming, though fell through under scrutiny. A by-the-book driftclub circuit in Edinburgh practically writes itself, but never exactly rocked my world. On the other hand, slogging through their fascination with cars from better games was painful, but hearing the zoomer VA call out "very long easy right" while I'm driving the Lancia from Sega Rally was spot on! Constant tug of war experience.

That's why, far from the best Horizon entry, this is not even the best racing game of 2018, but those special moments kept happening when I bit down, which is why I played FH4 hundreds of hours more than those other games. It's proven to be the most reliable contemporary racer and reminds me why I consider driving a luxury. But mostly, any arcade racer succeeding in personality despite of all the DJs sucking ass is worthy of praise in my book.

Luckily England also made the Essential Mix!

Missing something.
The game is begging for blue shells.

One step forward, one step back. The upgrades to the UI make progression more fun and dynamic than ever, and slowly making the map less restrictive gives the world a sense of life and freedom. But the map itself feels pretty uninspired, lacking real setpieces, and the game is simply more unstable than ever, with crashes and hitches due to its insistence on a persistent online setting. Still, many hours of fun were had.

Lots of content, constant updates (as of writing), if you love cars or racing games you'd be crazy not to pick this up. This game isn't perfect by any means but it comes way closer than any of the competition.

Edit May 2021: Dialing back my rating from a 4.5 to a 3.5. There's still loads of content and steady updates, which I severely appreciate, but the amount of FOMO is getting disappointing. There's a heavy emphasis on 'do the new championships each week so you don't miss out on these exclusive rare cars' which is a bit annoying if you're someone like me with a job and not a lot of time to dedicate to games each week. Besides that, FH4 has the most unsatisfying progression i've ever encountered in a racing game. No working, doing your best with races to get money so you can save up and get that sweet Lamborghini. Nah, in a couple of hours you'll have the rarest, most expensive cars thrown in your lap by a wheelspin and in a week you'll have a garage of 400 cars where you can only remember 20 of. It doesn't feel like you're collecting cars, owning them, building a bond with them, which is always my favorite part of an open-world racer like this,

However negative that sounds, you still have to give the game and the devs credit for supporting the game for years, adding exquisitely detailed cars each month for free among many other things like the Super 7 system and the Eliminator event.

    Basically car open world. If you love various cars or love to appreciate large collections, and you are a type of person that can motivate yourself into games easily, it's your game so grab it. However make sure that you buy it in Microsoft Store, not in Steam. Steam version of this game is a bit bummer, lacking both haptic vibration (pad) and proper force feedback (wheel).

    Haven't played FH5 yet, but this definitely grabbed me more than FH3. The map is denser and prettier, and the progression is way more cohesive, with the festival unlocking nonsense from FH3 being replaced with houses and perks moving to being per car now. I'm not a fan of the weekly season rotation, but given that they'd have to rotate them somehow anyway it's an acceptable compromise.

    What also helps is that this game got way more post-launch support than was originally intended, with no mainline Forza game coming out between this and FH5. It's pretty cool that quite a few people still play this; I'm in no rush to move over to FH5 myself since FH4 is still pretty fresh to me.
