Will Forza Motorsport 5 get to the top of the podium?
Published on November 13, 2014 by W.E. Ning
‘Where dreams are driven’ is how the makers of Forza Motorsport 5 describe their latest game, and with Forza’s great track record you wouldn’t want to bet against it. Exclusive to Xbox One, the game gives you the chance to drive some of the world’s fastest cars around great tracks on a truly cinematic automotive journey – but choosing which one of the cars will be your favorite could be difficult as the options include the McLaren P1, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, Pagani Huayra and the Chevrolet #1 Andretti Autosport Dallara DW12.
McLaren’s intention when designing the P1, was to create best driver-experience in a car on both road and track. With stunning looks and driving performance to match, it’s hard to argue. Ferrari’s fastest ever road car, the F12 Berlinetta, hits 60mph from standstill in a mind-blowing 3.1 seconds. The combination of 500foot/lbs of torque and 700 BHP of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 will be lethal in all but the hands of the best drivers, yet all-comers will be tempted by its reputation and drop-dead beauty.
However, for drivers whose prerequisites are topped by interior beauty, getting behind the wheel of any other car than the Pagani Huayra may leave you cold. Last but certainly not least is the 230mph top-speed capability of Chevrolet’s Andretti Dallara DW12 – a car that calls for drivers that have lightning reflexes. The chance to drive any of these cars is a bonus but, whilst if you’d rather something lighter than Forza Motorsport 5, there are plenty of opportunities for bonuses in some of the fun car-related online casino games such as Good to Go and Granny Prix.
Good to Go is a racing-car themed five reel slot machine found at Gaming Club. The slot offers punters nine pay-lines and combines all the fun of pit-babes, screaming rev counters and chequered flags. Granny Prix is a little less of a game, being what casinos call a “scratchcard game” that gives you the opportunity of a payout whilst Granny is at the wheel – if you can defeat her, that is. You’ve probably more chance of beating your Granny at Forza than you have at this one!
