With Forza Horizon, developer Turn 10 Studios took a leap of faith. By taking the incredibly popular simulation series, putting it on the open roadways of Colorado and switching from realistic gameplay to a more arcade-inspired take on racing, the company showed off its adventurous side. However, as with any risk, this venture released to uncertainty, amidst questions relating to its appeal. Unfortunately, the answers, which have predominantly come in sales form, haven’t been incredibly positive despite the game’s high review scores. It’s a shame, considering the spin-off’s high level of quality, but that’s the reality of this business. Hopefully things will improve soon, though, because this isn’t an experience that deserves to be left in the dust.
