Horizon? Somewhere over this rainbow!

As games go, I am sure this one has its moments, the game is set in Colorado, takes place where street racing and track racing meet. The game is engineered to be a fast paced, kinetic realization of a true race track. What it turns out to be is a copycat version of Need For Speed Carbon, Burnout Paradise and one other I know of that uses the same premise or racing around an "Island" looking to get into races for cash. The whole race game franchise needs an injection of cool game play not more boring repeated, white washed reproduced, stupidity they are producing now. Since the NFS franchise came out this is hard to compete with so I can see why this game looks identical in places to the games. What made me laugh most of all was the Speed Trap and how they use it as a credibility builder in game as opposed to the achievements awarded for destroying cops cars or damages in the Carbon games. This game is at best the low end of the stick when it comes to modular racing and game platforms.

Try before you buy

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.
If your a fan of racing game then you will want to pick this up.Hands down one of the best racers to ever come out.It's just so much to do in this game and will keep you busy for a long time to come.

Great Diversity!

With a great variety of racing challenges, this game puts your skills to the test. Great step forward for this favorite franchise. Here is a little known tip for 3D HDTV owners...Up-convert you set to 3D mode after starting your console. It will greatly improve your performance.

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.

Good game but....

I've been a loyal Forza player since the first Forza. This is a REALLY fun game to play and I'm happy that Forza finally went towards this direction, but it would've been great for them to have a larger car selection and to have acutal car damage like Forza 1 - 4. Besides that, It's a great game and I'm happy that they stept the racing experience in this direction. Can't wait to see what map they will do on the next game.

AWESOME Game. Graphics are incredible.

This game was purchased as a gift and is a huge hit. I have gotten a review everyday since Christmas on how awesome it is. I have seen the graphics and it is almost like sitting in your own vehicle.

christmas gift

I bought this for my 27 yr. old son for christmas. HE is disabled and loves the new games coming out. I got this for a great price and cant wait to see his face christmas morning.

Very good fun game!

A great game recommend to all racing and driving fans. It is sort of like Need for Speed without the cops. A very interesting direction they went I think. The old Forza Motorsports especially 4 was a great game as well!

Great Graphics

We have had a Wii system in the past and this game with X Box is so much better. My son loves it.
