Atomic Gamer - Of all the racing games released in the last few years, my favorite out of them all was Forza Mortorsport 4. When Microsoft announced that another studio - UK-based Playground Games, made up of veteran racing game developers - would be picking up duties for an entirely new kind of game in the Forza series, I was of course immediately skeptical. How is this new open-world racing going to work? Could they maintain what I thought were the core components of the Forza games? If any of those things were compromised, would that make this game unworthy of the name? After playing Forza Horizon at E3, I've come away hopeful, but still a bit disappointed.
