Forza Motorsport 5 is getting another dose of cars next Tuesday, in the 'Smoking Tire Car Pack.' Named after the popular car enthusiast site, it costs $10 for 10 cars, nine of which need to be unlocked in-game after purchasing the pack. The 1968 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale will be delivered to your garage as soon as you buy the pack, and will be available to use in all game modes. The other nine need to be bought using in-game credits or tokens once you've unlocked them. Those include the 2013 Abarth Punto Supersport, 2000 BMW Z8, 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S Twin Turbo, 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Ram Air, 2011 Ferrari FF, 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS, 2004 Maserati MC12, 1992 Toyota Celica GT-Four ST185, and 1995 Audi RS 2 Avant. Ho ho, that certainly is a long list of sporting automobiles! Probably with very many horses of power! The unlocking system is still a bit odd, but at least the update has lowered prices and boosted cash to make the grind easier.

As you can see, this is a car

      I hope we get a track pack soon because new cars are usually not enough to bring me back in. There are still a bunch of cars I never felt the need to buy in the base game.

      Holy fuck, what the shit is wrong with T10 / Microsoft?!

      I loved Forza, but they've turned the series into a rip-off fuck-you-give-me-money microtransaction-heavy scam.

        This is probably the best game they could make within the short time frame. I expect F6 to be way better.

          The actual game is indeed good, but I think it's unacceptable that they released the game with significantly fewer tracks and cars than the previous title, made it harder to obtain the cars, and then sell DLC packs right after release and even make you grind in-game cash to use the DLC cars. I thought they learned from Gran Turismo that grinding in-game cash is boring, but it seems their game designers started smoking crack.

      The more time I spend playing Forza 5 the less I enjoy it. For instance yesterday I wanted to try out drag racing on free play for shits and giggles. It was a fucking arduous task, I eventually turned the game off.

      Every time you leave the free play section it resets your track/game type/number of laps selection. That wouldn't be a big deal except you have to leave every time to adjust your tune, which you do a lot in drag racing. So every time I wanted to adjust the final drive or tire pressure I had to leave the track, go to the tuning setup, back to freeplay, reset all the track parameters then finally drag race for 10 seconds. They've really don't a shitty job this time. Waaaaay too much loading, waaaay to few tracks and an annoying menu scheme.

        Yeah, not being able to go back to the main menu after a series-race is also really annoying and a waste of our time.

          They need to allow you to adjust your tune while at the track. Maybe not change out parts but at least adjust your gearing dampening etc.

      Damn. I hoped this was going to be a patch that fixed tire smoke.
