Forza Horizon Review | D+PAD Magazine

D+PAD writes:

Horizon is a Forza game only in name. Here the series’ penchant for auto-fetishism and rigid progression has been replaced by a more open-ended structure, and a relatively relaxed approach to the art of driving closer in style to rebellious boy racers than the refined sophisticate of old. In taking this tack Horizon has also sacrificed the air of classicism that made Forza so appealing; granted, Turn 10’s superb handling model has been retained, but the shell around which this core game is wrapped sees developers Playground Games straining for an ‘alternative’ edge that falls cringingly short. (Forza Horizon, Xbox 360) 3.5/5
