    Played the demo, spun out hit a roadside sign. Message pops up you get 1% discount from the shop for every sign destroyed and can you break the other 99 signs. So I was addicted to hunting those signs down over the map

    Loved the demo - basically classic Forza, Dirt 3 and Test Drive Unlimited all mixed together.

    Metacritic is loving it too....

    This game is so not suited to the freeroam potential it's promoting. The demo is utter crap. It's a short, standard Forza course. Beyond that, not sure what new it's offering to the Forza universe, the physics and controls of Forza do not suit what I imagine this game is trying to offer. TDU it is not.

    Edit: This opinion is based on the the linear demo. The full game maybe awesome, although I still believe the forza universe, drive and physics don't suit a TDU!
    Linear demo? What? Where?
    You don't reckon he downloaded the Forza 4 demo or something, do you?

    Nice to see this receiving early positive reviews. Bring on the full release!

    Why look, it's a blog:

    Haven't read any of the reviews yet. Going to visit the front page with some trepidation - EG's worst and most ill-informed reviews tend to be of racing games. Oh well, here I go....

    Giant Bomb quick look. The beginning made me LAUGH.

    I totally called it.

    IGN's video review is pretty good. Makes a good point that we've put up with a lot of compromise in this genre and Forza Horizon is going to make rival developers up their game.

    He was probably under the mistaken belief that the Xbox Live demo was the same as the one at the Expo, something that's been pointed out isn't the case.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Demo's amazing. Love the feel of it, think it's great. But I'm afraid it's going to have to wait until next year. I want it. But it's not my Most Wanted.

    Bah, caved and pre-ordered. Can't remember the last time I did that for a 360 game.

    Giant Bomb vid is good. "Gran Turismo feels like a hospital with some cars in it."
  • Deleted user 12 October 2012 11:12:12
    Like all forza games then.
  • Deleted user 12 October 2012 11:14:48
    Reviews are up very early. No embargo?

    Pleased to see they're so positive though, the demo is excellent. I keep going back to it.

    Well the context was them talking about how the Forza games struggled to have a personality, but it was never really a huge issue as they felt fine up against GT5 which is like a hospital with cars in it.

    Genuinely pleased to see this get really great reviews, pretty much across the board.

    I really enjoy the forza games but the grind always gets me down in the end and the repetition sets in quicker than I'd like. This might just get over the feeling of grind, certainly more thn FM3/4.

    My biggest +1 for this so far though is the loading times. Forza has always suffered on this, even with HDD installs, but this removes a lot of that frustration.

    I've a feeling that the online multiplayer my not be quite so frustrating as FM4 bearing in mind the more sympathetic handling model and wider roads, time will tell I suppose.

    Day 1....? Yep..

    I only read about this, this morning and am quite interested. I remember the original Need For Speed on the 3DO where you got to race performance sports cars on regular highways and it kind of sounds a bit like that, which is great because I loved that game.

    The embargo may have been today. They aren't always release days scams.

    Ooooh, is this launching earlier than I thought?

    I had this pencilled in for the 26th.

    Doesn't really change my point though. They are both like hospitals with cars in thrm

    It's painful watching them play it though.

    The game does look beautiful, they nailed the sense of place.

    I thought the demo was alright. It's a pretty game, and the handling's very good. I didn't like the sound though, as the engine noises seem quite muted and the music is awful (but can be switched off). I liked TDU, so might get this, as it's pretty similar.

    Do any non-UK guys here know if the language can be switched to English? It defaults to the local language, but I'd rather it was in English like every other game.

    amazon.fr sells a forza horizon + wireless speed wheel bundle for around 75. You know the one, that U-shaped wheel they released with forza 4... Is it any good?

    Yes it is :)

    Played the demo with the speed wheel and it works pretty well, still the problem with a lack of vibration as in Forza 4. It's definately preferable to a control pad if using a wheel+pedals isn't an option.

    It's worth noting that it works well in some games (F1 Codemasters, Race Pro) and not in others (WRC). Also there are no bumper buttons! and there's nowhere to plug in a mic.
