EGM’s TAKE: If you’re a fan of the series and you’ve been dying for some DLC then you won’t be disappointed in terms of price, however content may be a little thin on the ground for your liking. It seems that with the headstart the game had this is a fairly weak response to the release of Forza Motorsport 4, which is out today.
