I can see this selling really well with some young demographic.

Still better than Most Wanted if you ask me, but i'll wait for the reviews

There's no question this will be far better than Most Wanted.

The question is why they went back on their aim of being "TDU with Forza handling". They started promising "open world" and now we know it's not open world (like TDU), only open ROAD.

Oh god damn it don't name your titles 'Forza Horizon is launched.' if it's not... You got my hopes up there for a moment. At least the demo's coming out a good two weeks before the game.

The oldies on here are going to be moaning alot about the music in this game. They will have a heart attack with the House, Drum n Bass and Dubstep...poor souls.

While I agree that (IMHO/IMO/PERSONALLY/ETC.) I find this really crappy music, I never listen to music in driving games anyway, so it won't be a problem and therefore I'm not moaning. Others might though ;)

Wont be much of a problem if its good genre picks (yes, there's indeed good artists in each of the genres, you just happen to never have heard of them). But my fear is that it's only the common mainstream BS that's going to make it into the game.

Looks at trailer where Evo jumps into giant open golf course and looks back at your comment....

No not every bit of the world is open and for good reason unlike TDU rough terrain is actually rough in this game and even the Raptor would have trouble with most of it let alone the rest of the cars in the game. There are definitely some open parts to the game to drive around and that should give people the freedom they yearn for from time to time.

If you want proof of what I said go jump in your car and try driving into a forest and tell me how far you get.

It's Xbox 360 you can put on your own music in some many ways.

Shouldn't the custom soundtrack feature of the 360 also work with this?

What does a Microsoft first party studio have to do with PS3? is your comment some kind of complaint?

This racing game with the Forza name stapled or tacked on it is more of a competition or imitation of Need For Speed Most Wanted series... therefore its not a true racing game... what with its arcadey Cruisn USA and veering off the road in what appears to be condoning/promoting reckless driving, not to mention the on coming non racing traffic... yet there is this celebration theme in this game... of not obeying traffic laws? lolz... epic fail... at least other racing games in this similar genre don't take themselves so serious.

This is one of the most ignorant comments I've read in a long time.

I guess you consider the Halo series a tribute to mass murder?

I tell you, playing Burnout 3 was the best thing I could've done while learning how to drive. Thanks to Criterion, I can smash ten cars in a single side swipe! Golly gee!

Hold on a second: what's age got to do with decent music? House music? Sure, that's right up my street if it's decent. Ditto for drum and bass, but as for Dubstep: I fail to even recognise it as a music genre. Well, I'd put it right up there with hardcore jungle, but below it.

Playground games is made of codies. You can tell by the menu and look of this game from videos.

Its ok, Akumajo. You usually dont understand to meaning of my messages. I just feel sorry, when I have PS3 and I would like to play this game. Is this clear enough? Peace! :-P

About that music....in last few weeks, trailers are "over-dubstepped", but I like all electronic music styles, even some alternative weird shit, so as MrWhite said, it has nothing to do with age. Music is like games. Its so much matter of personal preference, that people will always fight over it. :-)

Odd, Most DnB fans love Dubstep with half the produces moved over to it it's the natural progression. Also a DnB fan that does not like Jungle? Your a strange man...to much meth fumes!
