Forza Horizon

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: I've been trying to peg Forza Horizon since its announcement earlier this year, but Turn 10 and Playground Games never gave it to us straight. Is it more of a racing sim? Or a casual, arcade-style thing? Somewhere in-between? Now that I've spent some quality time with the game, I can give it to you straight. Forza Horizon is an open-road (like open-world for cars) racing playground.

Forza Horizon (Xbox 360) Review

  • Summary: is a great shot in the arm for the Forza franchise. While it takes out the super-simulation aspect of the racing, it adds in a great world to explore and race on, traffic to avoid, and a much better character progression that Forza 4 seemed to really miss. Despite a few small technical problems, notably the first half hour of the game, it’s still a stunning achievement for the series and for racing games as a whole.

Forza Horizon Review

  • Summary: " Forza Horizon " is a stunning achievement. It looks, sounds and plays amazingly. And whilst the number of cars on offer may be slightly down on the main game, the actual quality of the racing, variety of the tracks, and open world environment more than make up for it. Some people have called the cool environment ‘forced’, but I totally disagree- the whole thing is so relentless it really works, creating the best atmosphere in any racing game I’ve played in years.

  • Conclusion: My cynicism has been crushed. Forza Horizon does everything a modern racer needs to. It mixes excellent handling, beautiful scenery, and freedom together for a truly majestic title. Perhaps the biggest triumph is the exquisite balance Playground has managed to find between casual and hardcore racing. Dare I say it, Forza Horizon is arguably the most attractive and all-encompassing racer of the generation.

Forza Horizon Review

DailyGame

  • Excerpt: The word “forza” is Italian for “force,” an accurate description of Microsoft’s first-party racing franchise. Developed originally as the counterpoint to Sony’s Gran Turismo series, Forza has evolved significantly over the years, going from a super-simulator that ate casual gamers for breakfast into Forza Horizon, a game that masterfully blends simulation-like elements with arcade-infused accessibility.

  • Excerpt: Forza Horizon marks a massive turning point in the Forza franchise.  Horizon is the fifth instalment in the series and shifts the action into the open-world.  Up until Horizon the action was strictly limited to circuit racing.  The move to the open world also sees a complete overhaul in the Forza’s image, with the series arguably becoming another annual release title.
