The X Button writes: "There are a number of complaints that you could level at the Forza franchise - none of them big enough to detract from it's stellar, pure racing mechanics, but complaints nonetheless. Chief amongst them might be that's it's just a bit too barren, a bit too stale, a bit too devoid of personality. Forza Horizon does an admirable job of addressing this complaint. It sometimes goes too far the other way, but hey, at least they tried. Oh, and it also just happens to be pretty much the best open-world racer we've ever played. "
