Xbox’s newest exclusive is the highest-rated game of the year
Forza Horizon 5 is a huge success. It has surpassed titles like It Takes Two and Metroid Dread to be the most rated new game in 2021.
Dean loved his time racing in Mexico and was thrilled to be able to visit the beautiful and varied locations. In his review, he stated that “on one drive you can be travelling through desert and being hit by a storm, making it feel like you’ve entered into the world of Mad Max.” You could also drive through Ancient Mayan ruins, and a lightning strike strikes, making it feel like you are in Roland Emmerich’s disaster film 2012..

Many other outlets concurred with Dean that the game offers a truly amazing experience on the Xbox Series X. Every fan of the series should give it a try. Forza Horizon 5 is currently the top-rated exclusive console title on OpenCritic, surpassing Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and Psychonauts 2.
It is in sixth place on Metacritic. However, the few titles that are ahead of it include Disco Elysium, The Final Cut, The House in Fata Morgana and Tetris Effect Connected. These are all re-releases. It’s technically at the top of the pile alongside Psychonauts2. This means it’s a great time to own an Xbox.
If we scroll down through the top-rated games on Metacritic this year, Final Fantasy VIII Remake Intergrade is where we first see a PlayStation exclusive at seventeenth place. Although it may sound like Forza Horizon5 and Final Fantasy VII REmake Intergrade have significant differences, scored an average score of 91 while scored an average score of 89.
