Default Forza Horizon

Seeing as how this game just came out, I'm surprised no one has started a MiataTurbo club in the game.

I realize it's a little arcadey compared to Forza 4, but I find it fun nonetheless.

Anyways, I started the club.

I didn't like the demo. My friend and gf think its the coolest thing ever, drifting 1000hp around traffic.

It looks totally ******* retarded and represents everything that is wrong with the car community.
This next generation of kids getting into cars think its all about ken block and overbuilt showcars that mimic the look of a group B rally car without actually being fast or legal to run in any race class that has or ever will exist.

They should have called it "Forza: Speedhunters edition".

Well damn, now I feel all stupid for finding it somewhat enjoyable. I never tried the demo unfortunately, probably should have.

While I don't care much for the basis of the game itself, it's fun enough to drive around in an almost open world concept.

Oh well, to each their own.

Eh, too much going on in the FPS world right now to give a damn. Halo 4 and Borderlands 2 is just too much to add another driving game. Especially with the reviews posted above

i was hoping that the demo was more arcadey than the game would be, like they did with forza 4. if the actual game has the shitty 140mph cornering-on-the-street physics i wont be buying it. forza has been going downhill since FM2 anyway.

FORZA 4 - the last REAL Forza.
Whatever this crap is, is NOT Forza.
I had really high hopes for this.
Sorely disappointed. Will not be getting it.

Don't feel bad. It's a video game, designed to be "fun."

Arcade racers are not "fun"

At least I've noticed a significant drop in shitty races on Forza 4.
I am going to be picking it up tonight though.
$15, that's the going rate around here for this POS.

What disappointed me the most was the list of cars. I mean forza 4 had practically every car that was worth a damn all wrapped up together. But in Horizon there's barely any cars at all.
The game is still fun and I like the open world. If it had more cars and a more practical storyline it would be great.

Forza 4 didnt have **** for cars.

I still think Gran Turismo 4 is the best racing game ever.

I really like this game, I like the arcade-iness of it. On games like Saints Row, I dont care about the missions, I earn money to spend on car parts. I really enjoy this game.

Played MFS Most Wanted for a few hours. I have not had my arcade street racer fix for the next year.

I'll add this to my Gamefly Q and play a few hours at work one weekend. Have to fill my IT xmas season baby sitting with something.

Picked it up for $15 and after beating it, I agree $15 new is what this game is worth.

I love F4
But GT4 was damn good too.
Played it for a silly amount of years and didn't get tired of it.

If they combined GT4 with F4 it would be the BAUCE of affordable simulator types.

This game is garbage. I paid $15 and that's what it's worth. There's like 10 cars and the game can't decide if you are on pavement or dirt.

Also, when did they start making iPhone games for Xbox? You get the base game and have to buy every car and they advertise a rally expansion that should have come with the game.

wtf are you talking about? There is way more then 10 cars, and there is a very noticeable distinction between the dirt and pavement.
