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. 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 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.

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?
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog It’s gameplay is objectively worse. As are it’s quests, narrative and lore. Skyrim was shit. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: ones broken, one isn’t. That’s all there really is to it. For all your whining about shit combat in Witcher, i don’t really see how you could possibly give elders scrolls a pass? (2 Hours ago)

    Melmoth "The updated GameWorks SDK, coming soon, includes ray-traced area shadows and ray-traced glossy reflections.". and this is what they say will be in a game this year. Not full, pure, 100% raytracer. (2 Hours ago)
