VICE's Forza Horizon 3 review

The Canadian-American print magazine VICE reviewed Forza Horizon 3 on the day of its release (September 27th, 2016). Reviewer James O'Connor goes into a brief description of the gameplay, praising its driving dynamics and visuals before going into a politically-charged rant about how the game's depiction of Australia is better than what Australians deserve. He chastises aspects of the country, such as its voting on same-sex marriage, the former prime minister Tony Abbott, and politician Pauline Hanson and her party's opposition to widespread immigration from underdeveloped countries.

Why This Review Sucks

  1. Racing games have nothing to do with politics; Forza Horizon 3 is about car culture.
  2. Most of the above complaints made by O'Connor have absolutely nothing to do with the game itself. He blatantly used his review on the game as a springboard to push his political opinions about Australia.
  3. His views are clearly catered toward political correctness and social justice, both of which do much more harm than good.
  4. His complaints were so stupid that his own readers questioned why he would write such an article.
