Combining the legendary Forza Motorsport authenticity with a festival atmosphere and the freedom of the open road, Forza Horizon is a high-intensity, action-racing game set against the backdrop of the world's most unique motorsport party. Featuring an expansive landscape, daring driving maneuvers to master, a rousing soundtrack and visceral moment-to-moment gameplay, Forza Horizon offers an immersive pick-up-and-play experience while retaining the unrivaled realism, diversity and innovation that are hallmarks of the Forza Motorsport franchise.

  • This is action racing:
  • Visceral, moment to moment gameplay with Forza authenticity, attention to detail and quality
  • Smash through fences and picnic tables or drift through civilian traffic at high speeds to gain fame
  • Race against planes and helicopters in showcase challenges
  • Race at night with full 24hr light cycle for the first time in the Forza franchise
  • Freedom of the open road:
  • Race on some of the best driving roads in the world including pavement and dirt
  • Explore reimagined Colorado with broad environmental diversity - red rocks, aspen reservoir, and small towns
  • Discover hidden challenges and collectables like barn finds
  • Competition meets culture:
  • Set in an automotive music festival, find multiple radio stations curated by Rob da Bank (BBC One DJ and festival promoter)
  • Online playground games like "cat & mouse" or "tag", never made more sense
  • Rivalries and leaderboards baked into the world
  • Kinect for Xbox 360 functionality:
  • Never leave the open road environment using voice activated GPS

 Excellent racing game for any race fans

| | See all Dagg3rz's reviews (1)

Based on what I have experienced so far in the demo and the majority of online reviews, this is the est open world driving game created to date. No Framerate dropouts, gorgeous graphics, awesome cars, and a little bit of story that F4 was missing. Can't wait!

 based on demo

reviewers below say they cant just roam/drive and nothing compared to tdu2, yes you cant drive far but this is purely cause its a DEMO and your restricted but on the full game you can just cruise, do dirt racing,street racing etc..the map is huge and you can race when you want and when you don't want to you can cruise miles of open road and find hidden cars that need restoring. im a massive forza fan and everything thats forza is in this games only difference is the handling in the sense of not simulated more need for speed.

 An amazing game that I poured hours into

I consider myself a driving/racing game fan, but I can be picky about what I enjoy. I really enjoyed Test Drive Unlimited (TDU), thought TDU2 had its moments, loved Dirt 2 but not 3 as much, loved Forza 3 but not 4 as much. That said, Forza Horizon hits a sweet spot that has me completely hooked to it.

The basic premise is an open world, with a good choice of cars. The cars are king in this game, with the focus clearly being on them, rather than any ridiculous side-story (I'm looking at you TDU2!). The big names including Lamborghini are here, except for Porsche, but having RUF will, to a certain extent, fill that niche. Within a brand are a wide range of models, with anything from an Aston Martin DB5 of yesteryear to a modern day One-77 to choose from.

For what I want from a racing game, the handling is perfect. I've heard dedicated racing gamers and journalists say that the handling can still feel a little simplified and not a 1-2-1 simulation of actual driving, but if you appreciate that it's close, and not trying to be a direct simulation, then it's close enough for most. If you're a beginner, you can have a multitude of assists on, while those more experienced can turn off your racing line, ABS, automatic gearbox, rewind features etc., and be rewarded for doing so by getting cash multipliers for winning races with these assists off. Cars have enough character to feel unique, and you'll definitely have to adjust your driving style from one car to the next. Just upgrading your car, using the typical suite of Forza tools, can drastically alter the feel of a car (as you'd expect).

The world itself is big but not huge. Don't go into this game expecting 2 islands to play with, but do expect to be able to get lost in the scenery through simply enjoying driving. The graphics (in my opinion) are gorgeous, with the graphics engine really bringing out the best in the cars and the scenery. The day night cycle brings with it some glorious sunsets, which you'll want to stop and admire, perhaps using the Photo Mode to capture the scene. The camera settings are also head and shoulders above TDU2's offering, with proper settings such as shutter speed, aperture, contrast, vignetting etc. that all come together to provide the tools for some great photos.

I'm not a multiplayer kind of person, so look to another review for that, but I've heard it's pretty good - however the AI of cars in the world when playing offline can also create ridiculous fun, with other drivers actually going for it. In TDU you'd find another car which would only cruise around at low speed unless you started a race. Not only are instant challenges much better in Horizon (only 1 button to press before you're racing) but you'll find cars will actually push themselves outside of races, and so can be good fun to follow and race for miles, not just pass and then beat to a marker.

All in all, this is a game that I had to buy having played the demo. Once the demo had its claws in me, I pre-ordered the game, and am so glad that I did. I'd recommend this game to anyone who likes open world driving games, or is looking for a driving game that can be serious when you want it to be, but on the surface is good fun.

 worst forza ever

just recieved in the post yesterday. i wish i never ordered it the car handling is poor to non existent when cornering and cant adjust through the settings. the game strays completely off from seasonal events and tries to be more like need for speed the run which is a much better game. better luck next year for forza

 Test Drive Unlimited 3

Read all the preview write ups around the web that assured Horizons was not TDU3. Hmm well based on the demo it can only be described as TDU2 with a tweak or in other words, TDU3.
A bit disappointing to say the least. Especially as it doesn't feel like you can go for a cruise, it constantly wants you to attend the next race. I don't want to race, i want to go cruising!
Hopefully the full game will be better.
