Forza 4 is more of a refinement of the series rather than a completely new experience, then, and it's true Turn 10 could have taken more risks. But with its silky smooth action, excellent community features, multiplayer options and stunning attention to detail, Forza 4 is a thrilling and long-lasting ride.
