Turn10 did an excellent job at designing this new edition to the Forza collection. The graphics are amazing and very realistic. The open world is huge and filled with many options and tasks to complete. BUT, the game did not meet my expectations. If you are use to Forza 4, you will notice the controls are kept the same and thats where the similarities end. On Horizon, the handling of the vehicles are completely different and unrealistic. For people who have played need for speed, Horizon is very similar to it and thats why it did not meet my expectations. If you are new to the Forza collection I would strongly recommend this game.
Rated 2 out of 5 by AHAMAY47 Don't buy if you like Forza 1-4
DO NOT BUY IF YOU LIKE FORZA 4!!! This is an entirely different game from previous Forza's and will hugely disappoint Forza loyalists (although you do get a few cars if you played the other Forza's, ironic...) The open world is fun but the driving experience is totally unrealistic and you can't even tune your car! The online aspect is fun but needs a lot of refining; cars jump all over and smashing into other cars is faster than driving a smooth line at times. Going from Forza 4 to Forza Horizon is like going from Need for Speed Most Wanted to Pro Street. If you played those games that's all you need to know. All of that being said Forza Horizon is still addictive and fun, just not realistic.
