So many of the most popular video game franchises have continually pushed their luck and eventually lost. “You can’t have too much of a good thing” isn’t a motto that applies to games. Not forever, at least. Sooner or later, everything runs into the brick wall of diminishing returns.
Forza Horizon 4, the fourth Horizon game in six years, hasn’t lost that magic yet. Every other year, I quietly wonder if this is the Horizon that can’t quite live up to the game before it. That’s never the case. To borrow (and build upon) a line from our Forza Horizon 3 review, I still can’t find myself bored by launching off a stunt jump and soaring 700 feet through the air. There will probably be a point of diminishing returns for Forza Horizon, but it’s not here yet.
