Forza Motorsport 5 Xbox One review

This game is truly amazing. My only complaint is they need to add blinders so that you can block some of that sunlight.

One last question.  Well actually two last questions.  1) Is there a visable difference in racing with a wheel setup vs a joystick setup?and 2) If we choose to go with a wheel setup, what wheel do you suggest for Forza 5?

I'm afraid I've not owned a racing wheel in a while, and did not have the opportunity to test one with Forza Motorsport 5, so I can't say with certainty whether there are any visible differences. I strongly suspect that the on-screen arm movements in the cockpit view will be as closely synced as they are with an ordinary controller, but I'm afraid I can't give an authoritative answer. For that same reason, I can't rightly recommend a specific wheel to use with the game. I would suggest keeping an eye on the official game forums and see what kind of concensus develops before dropping any serious cash on a new one. :)

Is it worth it to invest in the Premium Edition of Forza 5 if you are a long time fan of the series or just know that it will be your racing game until Forza 6 comes out?  Or should long time fans stick with the regular edition?

I suspect long-time fans of the series will find the extra $20 to be worth it.

It includes:
- The Day One Car Pack (2010 Audi TT RS Coupe, 2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, and 2013 Ford Focus ST)
- The Limited Edition Car Pack (2011 Audi RS 3 Sportback, 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish, 2013 Shelby Mustang GT500, 2013 SRT Viper GTS, and 2014 McLaren P1)
- VIP Membership (which includes, among some other exclusive goodies, the 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 S/C, 1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird, 1991 Mazda #55 787B, 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, and 2011 Ford F150 SVT Raptor)
- 1,250 Car Tokens (which is worth about $10 on its own)

Sounds worth it to me. Mind you, I've not yet gained access to these goodies myself, so I've not been able to test them. But look over that list, and see if you don't drool a little bit. :)
