With the exception of the underside of your bare foot, Lego makes everything better, and that includes this charming add-on to an excellent racing game. In Forza Horizon 4 Lego Speed Champions, the England of the open-world street racing game Forza Horizon 4 has been converted into a giant Legoland called Lego Valley, complete with pirates, dinosaurs, and other things made of colorful plastic bricks. There's even a new all-"Everything Is Awesome" radio station. More importantly, this adds a meta game where doing tricks and completing tasks earns you the bricks you need to build things like a home for your Lego driver.

But even with all the painful plastic, this is still a Forza game, with all the depth that implies. Cars, including such Lego ones as the 1967 Mini Cooper S Rally you start out with, are fully adjustable, and that includes deciding if you want the controls to be arcade-like, realistic, or somewhere in between. This also has the regular game's wide variety of events and event types; so much so that it's like a whole new game. Though it is, in keeping with the Lego ethos, a bit sillier. Not everything in the world has been Lego-ized, and driving a real-world car on a Lego track is pretty funny. And while this humorous approach may be a problem for those who prefer their racing games to be serous and realistic, race fans who don't mind getting a little silly will find that Forza Horizon 4 Lego Speed Champions is, well, awesome.
