Review: 'Need For Speed,' 'Forza' Hit The Gas | Mercury News

mercurynews.com: "Need for Speed: Most Wanted" (Electronic Arts, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $59.99; PC, $49.99) is the most gleefully irresponsible of this year's racing games. It was developed by Criterion Games, the British studio best known for the "Burnout" franchise, and it shares that series' obsession with vehicular mayhem.
In "Forza Horizon" (Microsoft, for the Xbox 360, $59.99), British studio Playground Games takes U.S. developer Turn 10's exemplary car-geek series off the racetrack and onto the open road. Instead of offering a tour of classic tracks like Le Mans, the new "Forza" moves the action to the fictional Horizon Festival in Colorado. (Forza Horizon, Need for Speed Most Wanted, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Xbox 360) 3.5/4

Need For Speed: Most Wanted = 3.5 Stars out of 4.
Forza: Horizon = 3 Stars out of 4.
I couldn't put both scores above.

Who ever reviewed these games needs to NEVER review another racing game EVER again. Than again this isn't really much of a review but more like an article on the titles. There is no substance.

Either or doesn't matter. NFS Most Wanted is an abomination. Just another smash and grab title with EA trying to cash in on the Need for Speed name. Forza Horizon is an excellent title from start to finish. It has the physics of the Forza franchise with the open world / arcade style feel of so many other great titles of the past. Forza Horizon is a fantastic first try from a collaboration of talent from so many racing studios. I can't wait for the expansion later this month.

No site should even mention thees two games in the same sentence unless they are telling EA this is what (Forza Horizon) you should strive to become.

NFS Most Wanted is Burn Out Paradise with cop cars. Not that this is a bad thing but it feels very dated. It's the same damn game as BO:Paradise. Same engine, same graphics, identical gameplay. It was great several years ago but it could've and should've been so much more. Nearly every gamer I know is a racing fanatic and I don't know one that thinks NFS:MW is a great game. Reasoning being? Because it's not.

Its okay, but its lacking cops in MP mode. Disappointing for a game titled Most Wanted with cops all over the cover....

Forza: Horizon is quite a decent game.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted is crap.
