There’s an actual new Forza game coming next month, but don’t raise your expectations too high – Forza Street is a mobile free-to-play title, which has unexpectedly hit PC first. Right now, you can download the game from the Microsoft Store and play it on Windows 10 devices. Well, “play” is a slight exaggeration.
While the overall concept of Forza Street being a mobile rip-off of a well-established racing franchise is already rather troubling, the biggest concern is the game’s controls. On PC, all you need to do is to hit Spacebar at required moments to speed up or brake, while pressing B grants you with a boost. It simply cannot be described as a proper racing game since it’s nowhere close to the legacy of the Forza series. Perhaps, it would be better for the game to stay away from PC and focus on mobile devices only; but even with that in mind, it’s hard to imagine that the fans will pay any attention to it on iOS or Android. Apparently, Microsoft decided to attract a new solvent audience with Forza Street, and “solvent” should be considered the key feature here – judging by the huge green Shopping Cart button on the game’s debut screenshots. Do you love the smell of microtransactions in the morning?
Electric Square is the studio responsible for the development of Forza Street. You can collect beautiful cars, choose between quick races and story mode, and upgrade your rides – but we highly doubt that you’ll fall for it.
