Forza Horizon 5 has launched to pretty much universal acclaim - it's currently sat at a whopping 92 Metacritic rating - and quite rightly so as Playground Games' latest open world odyssey is one of the very best arcade racers on the market.
However, some players have taken to Reddit in order to voice their annoyance at some of the in-game NPCs and radio station announcers. Yes, from smug, back-slappy banter bros to cheesy DJs and Mexican locals who slip into Spanglish mode for no reason, it seems some of the dialogue and characters in the game have been rubbing a vocal minority the wrong way.
We'll admit that we have found some of the NPC characters a little overbearing ourselves, with a few too many reminders and "helpful" nudges to where you should be going or what you should be doing, and the game's habit of reminding you that you are the supreme superstar and legendary driver that everyone at the Mexican festival is excited to see can get a little tiresome at times.
A small and very nit-picky complaint considering everything this enormous game gets right, no doubt, but it's definitely something that people seem to be united in mild annoyance at. We can only hope none of them are ever exposed to the chatter in Ubisoft's equally excellent Riders Republic, as it's infinitely worse!
Have you been playing Forza Horizon 5 and getting a little wound up by the cheesy banter? Let us know in the comments!
