GJA: Forza 4 voted Best Racer

Need for Speed, Twisted Metal in runners-up places

Forza Motorsport 4 has been awarded Best Racer at the 2012 hmv Golden Joysticks.


The Microsoft and Turn 10 Xbox 360 title was voted above runners-up Need for Speed: The Run and Twisted Metal.

Our Forza 4 review called the Xbox exclusive "a fabulously rewarding drive and the finest Forza yet."

The racer has since received countless DLC packs since release and has been succeeded by arcade spin-off Forza Horizon.

Over four million votes were cast in this year's Golden Joysticks - almost twice the previous Guinness World Record-breaking best.
