This is just a polite notice to inform everyone that Forza 5 is out and has been out for a while now so you should all go out and play it!

Forza Motorsport 5

And as you will no doubt have guessed already, here at the Audioguys we again worked closely with Turn 10 and Microsoft on Forza 5 to help develop many of the vehicle engine sounds in the game. The game really does sound pretty darn awesome!

To see what other people think, we’ve gathered some reviews about how well the audio has been received:

“The audio, however, is uniformly excellent, whether it’s the chirping of tyres under brakes or the throbbing of a helicopter overhead. And the engine notes? Well, they’re better than ever. Turn it up loud; that’s an order.”

“The purr of the engines and the occasional sound of clashing bodywork is so well recreated in virtualform that I found the music layered on top of it entirely unnecessary, an element that broke the suspension of disbelief rather than enhance it.”

“Forza gets it right. Engine sounds, tire squeals and crashing noises are sophisticated and have depth. The sound surrounds you and gives the impression that you really are racing. And that’s enough to make it a worthy winner in this category.”

“The engine noises sound like they have been recorded straight from their real life counterparts, and no two cars, regardless of their similarities, will sound alike. From tapping the brakes, blurring past other racers, or pushing your tires to the limit, the audio of Forza 5 is excellent.”

“It’s superb. I recommend surround sound and a few hours alone. It’s brilliant. The character of each of the cars is captured, nuance and all. The audio engineers deserve special praise here. The menu music isn’t bad either.”

“Whilst you’re racing around with friends (or strangers) you might notice the quality of the audio. Even switching between the cockpit and the third-person view gives the engine’s growl a different edge. Turn 10 has done a great job capturing the sounds of racing, and the orchestral soundtrack adds another layer of gloss to the overall package.”

Forza Motorsport 5′s audio is just as close to real life as its graphics. The roar of the engines, the screeching tires and the bumper to bumper crashes sound comparable to how they sound in real life. Having a female narrator on hand to explain the basics of the game is a nice touch, too. Top Gear fans will also be happy to hear Jeremy Clarkson’s insight into all the different cars and the track locales you’ll be heading into.”

Forza Motorsport 5 was developed by Turn 10 Studios / Microsoft and is out now on Xbox One.
