Forza Horizon: Free roaming multi

Forza Horizon: Free roaming multi

I've found some old friends from the PGR2 days to play a bit of free-roaming Forza Horizon tonight, playing through a simple coop missing having us go through one point of the map to another quite far away. Sorry in advance about my driving, I'm not very good at this in the first place, and going to my current in-game Impreza to the 599XX was quite the experience :)
Update: Added a video showing the day/night cycle at two different points of the map.

Oh wow, lol. Most Wanted Day cycle compared to this looks right out of a xbox(1) game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ESEz77EVpY min. 2:37

OMG, you got Outrun on ma PGR! That ferrari race is sick.

"The news page has just announced the Forza Horizon Rally Expansion due in December! Complete with ruts, jumps, more surface types AND co-driver calls"

This is from Forzamotersport.net Sounds amazing.

I have to say I wasn't interested in this game until after the Gamersyde videos. Now I'm considering it

The only thing I really dislike on this game is the engine sound, when You shift down. Very....electronic or how to say it. But still a great game.

So this feels similar to PGR?

No feels similar to Forza 4.

I would say somewhere in between actually.

Must be vastly different from the demo then, Should have my copy tomorrow to see but from what i played it was very much Forza 4 physics and just felt like Forza but set in Colorado rather than circuts.

The game is a lot more forgiving than Forza, even without using the drving assists.

True it is more forgiving by default, but you can massively change this by setting to expert 1st then changing assets from there. A hidden asset is always on if you don't.

Do you mean Most wanted destroys this graphically. Of course it does. controls are better in nfs as well.
Commented on 2012-10-23 23:06:31
Most wanted doesnt look better then this :? maybe the PC version does, but lets not forget this has cock-pit view which NFS doesnt have.

Impressive clouds. Thanks for the vids!

Beautiful! Shame the pics are so damned small (would be perfect for PC wallpaper!)

PS. Second pic made me leak a tear or two - I miss my Supra... :*(

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (7 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (7 Hours ago)
