Forza Horizon (Xbox 360) Review

 

Taken out of the race track and put into the state of Colorado, does this reinvention of Forza manage to hit the finish line, or does it spin out into dust? 411mania's Marc Morrison finds out inside.

Forza Horizons 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...

I was cynical about Forza Horizon's release. Racing games that build themselves around music festivals, hoodies, and absurd storylines haven't sat well with me this generation. For a series like Forza, I wasn't sure how a spin-off would suit the...

Showcase events are pretty spectacular.

Watching TV generally drives me straight to the computer. Why? Well, most of what I watch on TV is car related in one way or another. Trying to watch an F1 race invariably has me soon sitting at the computer running F1 2012 trying to match a new line...

Forza: Horizon turns away from the down-in-the-weeds realism of previous versions to provide a more approachable ride. It's chock full of things to do and races to run, but even just driving through the spectacular countryside provides hours of...

Forza Horizon Review: A Refreshing Change of Gears

 

After four similar entries, the Forza series successfully shakes things up with an open world.

When is a door not a door? When it's ajar! DO HO HO! It's an old (lame) joke but one that is perfectly apt here. So when is Forza not Forza? When it's Forza Horizon. Playground Games has taken the tried and tested formula of Forza Motorsport and shaken...

A breath of fresh air for the series and one that should appeal to fans old and new, Forza Horizon may have toned down on the realism but the open world environment and host of quirky ideas more than make up for any discrepancies. This is a racing game...

What's DiRT and Test Drive and Forza all over?

Robust technical open-world racer; Incredible scenery; Solid radio stations (sans dubstep); Popularity bar rewards you for nearly everything; Good multiplayer offerings

though it could have been more technical; No avatar customization; Only a fair amount of single-player content; Constant reminders from commentator

Forza Horizon does more for the Forza franchise than it does for the open-world racing genre. It shows off the freer side of the series with high-production visuals and music, though it sometimes tries too hard to be cool and could have included a...

Much like a wild race horse, Forza Horizon has been bucking and chomping at the bit, ready to burst out of the starting gate in less than two weeks' time, and you can bet that every member of Microsoft's Turn 10 Studios involved with the racer's...

There's a serious problem with the variety of racing games you can get on your console or PC, and few developers seem to want to do anything about it. Serious sims on PC are extremely meticulous in their physics and handling, but amateur modders are...

I've mixed together a lot of negativity with my praise in this review, but I do want to come back to the notion that there's nothing really like Forza Horizon out there right now, as the wide-open world to explore and solid handling of the Forza...

What happens when you set the highest rated racing franchise of this generation loose on the open-road?

I wouldn't agree that there is any videogame racing series that stands out as the very best. Everyone has their very own opinion as to what suits them most and what they truly enjoy. Some people love the arcade style and street racing associated with...

You're getting all the detailed graphics, superb physics, and authentic vehicles that you've come to expect from a Forza title. It's a bit more arcade than simulation, as you'll certainly notice by the limited damage done to vehicles. The biggest...
