I continued to level up and grow my car collection – which happens quite quickly and is definitely more rewarding than in previous Forzas because you now choose from a selection of prize cars whenever you win a race – but I still couldn’t shake that nagging feeling. Sure, the visuals are more finessed. Sure, the driving engine is improved. And the sound’s better. But it felt like getting a new operating system: It’s clearly better than the last one, but only in ways you take for granted very quickly.

The career mode has been greatly improved. In Forza Motorsport 3, tour events were pre-determined, laid out on a calendar that players made a linear progression though. It was like being dragged along and then being told where to show up -- not very elegant. That has been ditched for Forza 4's World Tour mode. In it you'll zip across the globe, represented by a Google Maps-style overhead view, moving from one world-famous raceway to another as you progress through the ranks and cups. It's a bit more glamorous, and definitely less generic.

Forza Motorsport 4 arrives exactly two years after its predecessor thundered ahead of its racing genre rivals, leaving them behind to choke on a rather large trail of dust. In the two years since its release, petrolheads with a soft spot for racing simulators will no have no doubt enjoyed Gran Turismo 5 and the excellent F1 series, all the while waiting for the current king of the racers to return. The question is, can Turn 10 Studios improve upon perfection, or has the Forza series run out of fuel?

There may be the odd mismatched texture spotted by the eagle eye, and a few unwelcome cardboard cutout onlookers, but for the most part, the visuals are stunning... more so than a naked Scarlett Johansson wielding a taser between her boobs.

Many drivers won't even be interested in the World Tour, such is the strength of Forza’s online community. From racers with three synchronised screens and a racing seat whittled from balsa wood (probably) to drifting enthusiasts and artists, Xbox Live functionality has been a key selling point for the franchise. Friends can now form Car Clubs and share their pimped rides with each other or compete on personalised leaderboards. As well as the usual diversity of online racing lobbies to cater to all tastes, 'Rivals' mode lets you compete against an ever-changing field of opponents ghost cars for enticing cash prizes. Assuming that the Forza 3 community migrates, which seems a pretty safe bet, there's a lot here to satisfy both learner drivers and world champions alike. In a market filled with online passes and downloadable add-ons, it's great to have a game bursting with content. You won't have to fill in the gaps using your credit card in the near future.

The game simply sounds great. The musical score, which was mediocre in Forza Motorsport 3, has improved. It's still an ambient electronica mix that has elements of classical music and rock, but it fits the racing vibe and the menus. The engine sounds are stronger and more distinct than ever, especially to gearheads who know the difference between a 1957 Ford Thunderbird and a 2010 Dodge Charger. The sound upgrade isn't limited to engines, as the other effects, like howling wind and metal scrapes, come through with more clarity than before. As expected, Clarkson's voice coming through in Autolog is brilliant but so, too, is the voice for the narrator, who explains every new mode and takes over for Clarkson in Autolog when it comes to explaining particular car details. The pitch and delivery add an air of sophistication to the game, and it is certainly welcome.

Racing games have always strived to strike that balance between being a virtual showroom for car lovers (see the well-done and informative Autovista mode for that) and actually being fun, compelling experiences. Forza 4 successfully bridges this gap and is the racer you’ve been waiting for.

This sense of selection is also illustrated with the car roster that’s a welcome change from the excess of Gran Turismo’s, where it wasn’t unusual to have 13 Honda NSXs or 22 versions of the Mazda MX-5. This practical quality-over-quantity approach also makes the idea of owning every car in Forza 4 attainable and more importantly, a worthwhile goal.

It's a brilliantly engineered use of Xbox Live, and a welcome advert for the kind of community the service can breed. Forza 4 is just that kind of game; welcoming, slick and meticulously built in order to give its audience what it most desires. Because whether it's the feel of the road, the fury of competition or good old fashioned wish fulfilment, Forza 4 really does have you covered.

The artificial intelligence is, on the whole, competent – taking (and defending) the racing line, reacting to your moves and jostling for position. Each of the computer-controlled opponents will also display their own unique styles – one may take a calm, calculated approach to victory, while others may throw caution to the wind – complete with occasions of overconfidence that see them fly off the track, crash into others or simply overcook a corner and drift off the line under pressure.

Your event options are generated based on your car’s class, manufacturer, model and drive-type/engine placement. This means that when you hop into your coveted Nissan Sylvia Spec-R you can expect to find Nissan-specific events, B-class events (if you’ve tuned it to such a specification) and events for rear wheel drive cars.

You're also bound to notice that your prowess on-track - cornering, overtaking, drifting, slipstreaming, tailgating, speed, and so on - gets rewarded by 'badges' (which you attach to your profile, should you wish to). And when you level up in driver XP you now get to choose from a selection of vehicles rather than being force-fed a single selection. They're little additions, but the kind that make a difference.

Forza Motorsport 4 refines and improves upon its predecessor in a number of ways, but also feels just a little too familiar.

you can get up to 16 players into a lobby and roll through a ton of different options to configure events to your liking. The basic race types are available, but you can also go custom and create your own weird variants with different types of scoring, team settings, and the like. You can lock out specific car classes or even force everyone in your lobby to use a specific camera setting. And if you're anticipating troublemakers, you can even disable on-track collisions, making the game more of a group time trial than a traditional race. Considering the way this all went down in previous Forza games, turning off collisions might not be the worst idea, as boorish random players seem to always want to bump their way into first place or fly into corners at full speed, using the other racers as cushions to help them make turns, and what have you. If that's how you want to play, fine, but if you're attempting to behave in a civilized fashion, you might want to team up with some likeminded individuals ahead of time. That's where the game's car club feature fits in, letting you build your own racing teams online and struggle on club leaderboards. You can also share cars in your club, letting players pool their resources and build a great, versatile online garage.
