Both of them have the capability of being the biggest racing games of full winter 2021 and spring 2022. Both of them are RACING GAMES which are available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One Series. These games are massive; They are the system sellers for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Let’s now see- Gran Turismo 7 vs Forza Horizon 5 which one is better?
Gran Turismo 7 vs Forza Horizon 5:
1. In terms of FPS (Gran Turismo 7 vs Forza Horizon 5)
Forza Horizon 5 – Forza Horizon 5 has multiple changes with respect to Forza Horizon 4. Forza Horizon 5 has a vast expansion in terms of the map; I mean, you aren’t restricted to a straight road like in Forza Horizon 4 but you are free to drive around anywhere across the map. And the second but most important upgrade is that Forza Horizon 5 is going to run at 60 FPS in performance mode.
Gran Turismo 7 – Coming to Gran Turismo 7, it can also run at 60 FPS (frames per second).
So, if we take the aspect of how smoothly will the game run into consideration, it is very clear that both of them will run extremely smoothly.
2. With Respect to Number of Cars and Models available In-game
I. Number of In-game Cars
The total number of cars available in-game in Forza Horizon 5 is at least around five hundred and fifty (550), and many more to come in the upcoming days. On the other hand, in Gran Turismo 7, at the moment, the total number of available in-game cars is four hundred and twenty (420). That is a huge margin.
II. Detailing of the Cars
Though the difference in the total number of cars in Forza Horizon 5 to those in Gran Turismo 7 is around 100; if we take the detailing part of the cars, Gran Turismo beats Forza Horizon. The cars in Gran Turismo 7 are more bespoken. The cars going to have much more bespoke, going to have much more character, and going to drive differently.
III. Models of Cars
You are going to see newer models of cars in Forza Horizon 5. In Forza Horizon 5, we will even witness the new Chevrolet Corvettes, specifically the most recent Chevrolet Corvette’s release – Chevrolet Corvette CA. But in Gran Turismo 7, we still find the old Chevrolet Corvette C7. So, if you want to drive newer cars, Forza Horizon 5 will be a better game among these two for you.
IV. Pace of Game ( Gran Turismo 7 vs Forza Horizon 5)
In Forza Horizon 5, you can drive lots of different cars like Lamborghini, a McLaren, a Ferrar, and many more. You can experience the thrill of driving various cars whether it can be an AMG or even a pickup truck with lots of explosions happening in the background; you can even have crazy races against aircraft, trains, and even helicopters. In short, it’s a very fast-paced game i.e.; You can swap from one car to another, a track to another in just a second.
Whereas, Gran Turismo 7 is a slow-paced game where you start off with a cheap car and you drive until you grind the cash to get richer and get a nicer car. In Gran Turismo 7, you have a car, you will learn how it performs, you will try and improve your driving skills in that same car and then move on to a new car. You will have a chance to become your car’s companion and have that attachment with your car.
So, it’s based on your mindset or choice whether to play a slow-paced game and get attached to your car else play a freaking fast-packed game and just experience those crazy kick-ass races.
V. In terms of using a Pad or a Steering as a Controller
If you prefer a steering as controller, then Forza Horizon 5 isn’t your cup of tea. It’s better to play Forza Horizon 5 using Pads as a controller. And Gran Turismo 7 is completely opposite to Forza Horizon 5 with respect to this aspect because it’s a game to be played using steering rather than pads.
