Forza Horizon review: into the sunset | The Verge

Horizon's accessibility gives way to a lack of foresight. Its open world feels empty, its economic model is questionable, and its armada of cars are powerless against arbitrary AI escalation. Forza Horizon has more flash than its predecessors, but it's hollow by comparison.

You always find that one low review vs almost perfect scores everywhere else. Great job The Verge. I wouldn't give the game anything less that an 8 but I'd prefer to give it a 9 based off the demo.

You haven't played the game, yet, wouldn't give it anything less than an 8? Unreal.

The demo is the game in short. Duh!! I know from the demo how some of the cars feel, how good the game looks both day and night, and what the races are like.

So yea I'd give it an 8 or 9 from how good the demo was. I know enough from it to get a good feel of the game.

Rating a demo is like rating a trailer. It's unreliable. Great games have bad demos, bad games have great demos. I simply think rating a chunk of a game without playing the full, finished product is amateurish. That's all.

Absolutely agree.
This guy obviously didn't understand that from the creation; This is not the typical Forza Game!

Also, based off the demo; Id give Forza Horizon a 9 or higher. I cant wait for this game. Ive driven every road in that demo & cant wait to drive as many as I can before the release of Halo 4.

Glad we have demos to discount authors like this.

I pressed the agree button by accident!! If everybody reviewed games from their demos you'd complain!!

Meh. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, no matter how the rest of us feel. I respect his views but I won't take them to heart.

I bet they predicted low reviews from different sites. Didn't happen and they are the only one so far.
