    Forzalite, I suppose that's one way to put it. I just find they dumb down the simulation driving characteristics for the more younger players with each release. I'm also really over the outdated music they keep cramming into this, with no option for OneDrive/Groove (Whilst we all know Groove was bought out, it's still usable for personal music)

    But each to their own. Just expecting the same batch of cars that have been in the previous Horizon's for the next 6 months as car packs.

    I feel like horizon has become the series to get and the motorsport series is just total garbage now (well, I guess that happened back in forza 5... RIP my favourite game series)

    If you remember Horizon 1, it had no car tuning at all, I can see why you might compare that to a criterion type arcade racer.


    I felt pretty satisfied with Horizon 3 with all assists off and all difficulty options maxed. I feel like they have the balance of fun vs. accuracy pretty honed in for an open world racer.

    OMG the game can find out your first name and it'll bring it in if it's common enough.

    In a minority there it's a simulator compared to nfs/the crew. It has slightly dumbed down physics compared to forza motorsports but still quite realism based. Forza motorsport isn't a full sim though but a good balance between real and accessible. Horizon is just perfect for messing around in open world.

    already in winter now LUL

    The game just feels more focused than The Crew 2. I was gonna try more Crew 2 but it decided to crash and force me to hard reset the PC again so I ended up just uninstalling it for good.

    I think they have fixed the loophole, or I am doing it wrong... I get access denied when I copy and paste a url from fiddler or it sits there doing nothing.. hopefully someone torrents the game files, not for piracy (as need legit copy) but just to make it easy to install without NBN speeds.

    ChinoPD you should totally buy this great game and DL and let me rip the files from ya ;)

    Played about 5 hours today, runs great on my system beside a couple of minor hitches around the bigger towns (nowhere near as bad as surfers in FH3). Seems good so far.

    Probably tiny little sections of roads you missed. You should be able to find them on the map (I had something similar while 100%ing the map in forza 3)

    i can't find them on the map so i gave up for now and just get as many of the influence and fast travel boards i can get.

    they put those boards in the weirdest places.

    free trial to xbox gamepass is by far the best way to play right now... if you like it get another month for 10 bucks or buy it outright if you feel so inclined.
