let me tell you when i first started playing this game i was completely surprised by the whole thing. the location the cars the racing the design and paint your own car and stuff. plus with the challenges and going up against the pros is completely awesome. but their are a few drawbacks on this game. for example when you do the outpost check point missions they are frustrating. for instance when you need to break a speed record for a time limit at the very end of the run the brakes automatically brake for you which is completely annoying and ridiculous. i got so frustrated with those kind of objectives that i just stop doing those and do easier ones. plus another annoying thing about this game is that its only taken place in Colorado. now theirs nothing wrong with Colorado its just that if its going to called forza horizon the setting should at least take place all over the country and the world too not just Colorado like what they did in Forza 4 where you could travel all over the world and race that was awesome. another bad thing about this game is the bad driver camera when i switched to the driver view it was hard to drive becuz you have everything coming at you all at once. enough of that the best thing about this game are the cars the cars in the game are so much better to control and so much better looking it makes me want to go ask my parents and say mom dad i want a Ferrari hahaha. oh and one more bad this is the annoying radio. seriously the radio on the game plays the same songs over and over again its gets annoying plus the songs on the game completely suck and are horrible. but i still would give this game a 9.

The gameplay in Forza Horizon was pretty enjoyable for me.. I love the fact that it is a game that takes place in Colorado. The racing seems pretty realistic; with tight corners and the vision you play with as your car accelerates. The cars are pretty sweet, you can either buy them or find them in what the game calls "Barn finds" these are cars that are either classic or vary in rarity.

the game is completely different the upgrading is not as detailed as the older ones, the cars all act the same as far as performance goes ( i can drive a 1956 ford pick up going 212mph on dirt and still beat sti's and lancers in races) the graphics have really gone down in my opinion the cars look more comical. The damage part is now just horrible you can slam into a wall at 200mph an just drive away from it like its a fender bender what happened to the realistic damage like when your radiator would blow or your tire rods get bent. The thing that really grinds my gears though is that your just racing the same streets over and over again with the same bunch of idiotic AI drivers. I hope the next one they come out with is similar to 4 or 3.. that was real racing in those ones..
