The five races will all be a breeze and can be completed over a few laps, but "Scenario" mode makes Forza Horizon 5 almost a full-fledged open world game. Segmented into eight main sections, Scenario is like Neo's Matrix with a greater emphasis on action-packed gameplay rather than simply driving around in a wide-open environment. You'll maneuver a car in a number of events across eighth-mile-long city streets, build roads and crash them out, get behind other cars, and even jump over one during certain situations.
After selecting the number of laps in a race, the various cars in Forza Horizon 5 run around randomly. That means you can zoom out and tweak your settings to your liking rather than trying to predict a particular car's performance. If you wish to tweak the game's performance settings, be happy that the game provides an in-depth help system for adjusting them. Add-on tracks, however, won't be that helpful. As I mentioned, I was one of the first players to download the free Track Crew and El Dorado Circuit DLCs, and I was impressed with the level of detail both had to offer, especially in the former. It was a ton of fun, but the main problem was that simply driving around them was virtually the same as playing the game's regular Race mode, which left less of a lasting impression.
With EventLab, Forza Horizon 5 takes the fun of "hotwheels mode" and is totally out of control. The map displays all the attractions you can unlock in the game, so you know where you should be going. If you are the type of gamer who likes to be able to go to a place you had no idea existed, that's where EventLab shines. What makes the mode even better is that you can make contributions to the community-run server. Everyone can work together to modify the course. Once it's done, everyone can rate the course and earn bragging rights. EventLab makes Forza Horizon 5 feel like more than just a $60 racing game. It's become a showcase of what you can do on open-world roads around the world. d2c66b5586
