After four games in the series that have stuck to the track day, racing career formula, Forza Horizon is out to bring open road racing to the tried and true gameplay that fans have enjoyed for years now.
The playable race at the show was a nice mellow country road, mostly two lanes with a few small four lane areas. Now I know I said the road was mellow, that is until the race started… So as it turns out when you bring a Viper onto a quiet little road, quiet goes right out the window.
The game looks great, with very, very detailed car models, good roadside vistas and even damage models.
All the cars sound like the real world versions, which is to say they sound like “The god of thunder gargling nails.”
