Forza Horizon is among the best in the racing genre. I'm a huge Gran Turismo fan but the Forza series is a great alternative for 360 owners, its actually better in some ways. This game combines the great physics and AI of the other Forza games with an open world racing festival. Its a blast to just drive around the countryside and the graphics are spectacular. The music is also worth noting, there are three different "stations" that you can change depending on if you like electronic/dubstep, indie/chill, or classic rock. Most of the music is pretty good, and fits the style of the "Horizon Festival." You can also adjust the difficulty which gives you an increase in credits, and actually creates a challenge instead of just seeing how far ahead you can be before the end of the race. The AI of the other drivers is pretty impressive sometimes being aggressive and forcing you off the track. One noteable difference with this game is that nearly every race has a different track, also making it a little more challenging instead of just memorizing all the tracks. The "characters" can sometimes be annoying, not really used to that in a racing game but it doesn't ruin the experience. And oh yes the cars, each has extreme detail and the interior view is available in every car rather than just the "premium' cars like in GT5. The class system works great and balances the game very well. Unlike in the GT series where you might find yourself in an F1 car racing station wagons. There are customization options, though I would like to see more body kits there are plenty of engine upgrades, and paint/decal/rim options. I guess there are no cops at this festival, which honestly would get annoying(I guess if you like that go play NFS most wanted). Online multiplayer is fun but its just not quite there yet with racing games. Forza Horizon is a nice change up from the normal formula and if you are a racing fan on 360 this is a must play.

The best forza by far. Never was able to try it with kinect but i did play it thoroughly and was impressed. I would recomend this game over the junk (nfsmw) EA calls a racing game.

I only played this game for a couple days but it was an amazing game. It doesnt have quite as many cars available as Forza 4 does, but still just as great. Its still a very realistic driving game, basically if Forza did Need for Speed, but better.
