Forza Horizon preview (The X Button)

The X Button writes: "I'll admit, I was skeptical. The Forza series is one of the finest driving simulators around; not quite as quirky or impenetrable as Gran Turismo, and not as self-consciously cool as Grid or Need for Speed: Shift, it's always been a series of quiet, refined excellence. So the decision to hand off development duties to British newcomers Playground Games for this spin-off did not initially fill me with confidence.

A few minutes behind the wheel at the Eurogamer Expo, however, and those initial fears swiftly disappeared. Horizon might swap the strictly defined circuits of the series for the open roads of Colerado, but it does so with all of the series' hallmark dedication to realism. " (Forza Horizon, Xbox 360)
