'Forza Horizon' Shouldn't Advertise Cars That Aren't Available

Forza Horizon is advertising a vehicle that isn't available in the game. (Forza Horizon, Xbox 360)

Agreed, while I liked the game, the choice of cars exclusive to store-specific preorders was ridiculous (so ridiculous that I actually mentioned it in my own review).

The models were way too relevant, and are seriously (besides one) cars that should not (and usually are not) missing in any car game of this kind.

Things are made worse by the fact that the 370z is the only Z model available in the game.

There's no Fairlady Z, No 350 Z, nothing.

It's ridiculous that it's on the box art. If I can see it, I should be able to use it.

The whole pre-order exclusive content...
... is ridiculous and frustrating anyway.

Often you'll have different pre-order content for different chains, so even when you buy the game for full-price and through pre-order, you'll still be missing out on content that was exclusive to another store.

Not to mention the whole DLC-milking thing with Forza is annoying enough as it is already, and for me a reason why I skipped Forza 4 and also skipped Horizon.

I don't buy incomplete games, nor do I support those greedy developers.

Yi-long so i take it you dont own many games then as most games now have dlc for them.

For im happy to support the developers as heck making games is the same as any job its about making money.

They way i look at it is dlc for most of the games i got it for is part of the reason i go back to the game.

Look at bf3 for example. The map packs that have been brought out over the last 12 months since its release have kept people going back to the game as it adds something new to it.

One thing i do wish playground would put in this game though is a kick button on the online as there are far too many people who dont know how to play a driving game and spoil it for the rest of us. If playground could add this in it would make my day.

I actually own lots of games.

I just wait for those who are 'incomplete' to get a 'complete'/'ultima te'/GOTY edition for half of the original price, or less.

That means waiting a little bit longer, but getting more while spending a lot less, thus more gaming.

There is a '69 Fairlady Z. I just had the option to buy it for a race this evening.

Good point. Don't advertise something that isn't included...at least without saying it isn't included.

Even then, the cover car? Really?
