Was there ever any doubt? Forza showed up in top form this year, delivering one of the best looking racing games we've ever seen. Seriously. We probably spent hours just playing with our cars in the new Autovista mode alone. It also doesn't hurt that this game handles like a dream.
If you are a car lover, don't let this one speed by you. Especially since Forza 4 earned a 4.8 out of 5, one of the highest scores we gave to any game this year.
Hopefully you'll be as impressed as we were once you read our full review.
Our runner up this year strays a bit off the beaten path. MotorStorm Apocalypse challenges its drivers with navigating harsh, ever-changing terrain, complete with natural disasters and even the military. It's a white knuckle thrill ride that will test even the most hardened racing fans.
