The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Forza Motorsport 5 is a racing game that lets players drive new cars around a track and unlock new ones. The game features crashes, but the results are unrealistic, which could leave young kids with the impression that crashing isn't dangerous. The game is playable online with open chat, which can expose players to unmoderated commentary.

Talk to your kids about ...
Families might talk about how street racing is only safe in a virtual environment, such as a video game, and not in real life. Parents can explain how it can be deadly in real life and that thousands of teens die each year from reckless driving and racing.
