Summary: this game was fun at first but it gets old really fast and the game has terrible choices for DLC, why not put in a 99 eclipse but instead we will put in a stupid 1988 gmc rapist van, this game is destined for the $5 value bin, and with forza 5 being on next gen ruins the whole series for people who cant afford a xbox one, way to go turn 10...
Summary: I've always been a fan of the Forza franchise...well, not always. I started out as a die-hard Gran Turismo fan. GT3 was a spectacular game with more cars than I had ever seen in a single title. The controls were terrifically accurate, and the integration with the steering wheel was spot-on. I'm an XBox 360 user, though, and GT doesn't port to XBox.
Pros: Fun gameplay, sim-style that isn't quite as technical as actual sim, interesting world, expansive free-roam area
Cons: Half the cars are DLC and cost extra, repetitive car-specific challenges, limited control config, no split-screen racing
Summary: Awesome game. Really fun to play,but it throws DLC in your face every chance it gets. Upgrading your car: "Oh that's a nice part!" *click* "Purchase Bullcrap DLC #24 to access this part." Buying cars: "That's a sick car!" *click* "Purchase February DLC car pack to buy this car." Every Loading Screen: "Purchase Horizon Rally pack so you can actually play this game how it was meant to be played!" DLC is awesome, but not in the way this game implemented it.
Summary: Forza 4 and Gran Turismo 5 are two of my favorite games this generation. So for me getting the next Forza seemed like a no brainier, I guess I should've done my homework. The team at turn 10 decided to go in a different direction with this game, they abandoned their simulation roots for an arcade style.
Summary: Is not your regular Forza, this is more like a Need for speed game if you didn't know that from the get go. Me personally i can't go any higher than a 3 because i wasn't blown away by the way and honestly am not much of a car guy mainly got it to play online with a friend and Amazon had a great deal on it.
Summary: Was looking forward to this game. Got it and was just having a blast with it. Then I realized once I finished the main part of the game I was going to get bored really quick. And it doesn't take long to finish the main part of the game. It is a fun game and I did enjoy it a lot while I played it. Online is fun, but I'm not the biggest on doing online on any game for the most part. I thought buying the Limited Edition was a great idea.
Summary: I love Forza driving games. I was really looking forward to this title. Ordered it in advance and played it minutes after I got it in the mail. What a disappointment! I hope that this is not the path that Forza has decided to go down. I guess it's halfway between the previous Forza titles and an arcade game. That's fine; there are plenty of folks who will enjoy that kind of game; the music, the "Treasure hunts", and the free-flow atmosphere. Not me, though.
Can you say nickel & dime you to death with DLC???

Summary: Within 3 mins it was bugging me about buying the expansion for rally. Lots of the cooler cars are only available via DLC. WTF? Gameplay is fun as long as the cars you like are already in the game.
