If you have an Xbox One X, it's ****ing gorgeous, that's its big selling point. Like, the best looking racing game ever. Huge, detailed car models, silky frame rate, from in-car or first person doing a GT race or something around the Nordschleife, it's the slickest thing ever. Like proper next generation stuff. It handles well enough, its fun, it's quite challenging and the AI is reasonable. It's good.
Also - given that their isn't a Forza Motorsport 8 due imminently (breaking the bi-annual FM/Horizon) pattern, its still being supported monthly with new cars etc.
But it's not exactly deep. No qualifying, limited/non existent multi-class or custom options, and the handling for me is nothing like as satisfying as GT Sport so hot-lapping isn't much fun once you've got over the looks, and if you want a serious simulation you go for (despite their many flaws) Project Cars 2 or Assetto Corsa.
I particularly hate the lack of grip and feeling of the cars constantly understeering and sliding. Compare a Formula car in FM7 to the new Super Formula in GT Sport and it's worlds apart. One will spend its entire time awkwardly skating across the track, one has so much grip it makes your eyes pop out through the Suzuka esses. The realistic thing is probably sonewhere in between but I'm on GT Sport's side.
Amazing technical demo though.
