Playseat Forza review – The ultimate gaming chair for Forza lovers

Last week we reviewed the Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel, the best steering wheel available for Xbox One at present.

Netherlands-based company Playseat has the gaming chair market cornered, offering more than 10 different gaming chairs for racing and flight games. Given that Forza Horizon 2 is one of my top Xbox One games of 2014, I jumped at the chance to try out the Playseat Evolution Forza Motorsport Edition. Read on for my full impressions, complete with exclusive video review and unboxing and assembly videos!
