Turn 10 Studios has taken their highly detailed, physics-based Forza racing engine and done something radically different – they’ve let Playground Games use it to build a sandbox racing game. Leaving the traditional race tracks and extreme tweaking behind, we get to take a plethora of Forza’s super-detailed cars to a fictional auto racing competition in a pre-shrunk version of Colorado – complete with road traffic throughout the mountains, deserts, forests and freeways. Kinect GPS, skills challenges, and even photo opportunities and free range exploration has us heading in an entirely different direction. Let’s pull the hood release and see what makes Forza Horizon tick, shall we?
If you ain’t first, you’re last!
The drivers are ready, the world is watching.
Once more, I give you what you want!
Hey Stampede, how ’bout a poem?
