Forza Horizon review | Eurogamer

Eurogamer - You have reached your destination.

Forza Horizon is one of those games that tries too hard to look hip. Its characters and setting - a festival of music and motor racing - share the same sanitised vision of youth culture you see in ads for mobile networks. Its colour scheme is black with hot pink and every menu rests at a 15 degree angle. Achievements have titles like 'OMG' and '#WINNING'. (Forza Horizon, Xbox 360) 9/10

The demo is fantastic so did not expect anything but excellent reviews for Horizon. Great job Playground games and Turn10.

Is the demo really extensive? Alot of tracks, cars etc, is it open world like Burnout Paradise?

I'm not surprised at all. Played the demo the other day and hands down, it is one of the best if not the best racers I've played.

Turn 10 have absolutely nailed the whole car scene feeling. I'm heavily into modding cars and attending meets/shows and the manner in which T10 have captured the vibe is uncanny.

What past driving games really have suffered from is losing the sensation of speed; not here. I was so pumped when you're suddenly racing at the beginning of the demo with some amazing drum and bass being played and honestly, at times I was trying to brake with my feet when I was playing lol.

The community races are a touch of genius in the manner in which they are implemented; I was randomly asked to race against my mates best time and spent ages trying to beat his speed trap speeds.

Even from playing the demo it was clearly obvious that Forza Horizons isn't a mere stop gap or lazy cash-in; it really is one of the best all round racing games you can get. Try the demo out if you're in two minds.

I am hoping some of these early fantastic scores will put the game on more peoples radar, I know its a busy month filled with great games, but this game deserves sales to go along with fantastic scores. Cant wait to pick up my copy!
