Forza Horizon : Could This Be The Best Forza Yet?
Could This Be The Best Forza Yet?
It ‘s crazy to think that this is the fifth installment in the Forza series. I guess you could now call it a franchise. Forza Horizon, however, is more than just the fifth game in the series. While it will have some features that fans of the series have come to love, in many ways Forza Horizon is somewhat of a spin off rather than a direct sequel to Forza 4.
The amazing graphics of both the cars and the scenery are here in true Forza form. No detail has been overlooked or pixel spared. Forza Horizon is one of the best looking racing games to be released this year. There are a ton of cars just like what we have come to expect from this series. The amazing game physics are still intact. This aspect is what has made both Forza Horizon and all its predecessors different to other racing games and in many ways, better.
Forza Horizon Changes
Forza Horizon, however, does have a major game changer. That is you no longer need to win races. There is more to the game than that. Forza Horizon will see you cruising around an amazingly highly detailed open world. You need to win wristbands and win as many of them as you can.
The excitement within the game comes from the pursuit and collection of “wristbands”. There are a multitude of ways that you can win these wrist bands. For the racing purists there are some races that you can enter in order to win races, but for those of us who want something a little different there is more. For example, you can get wristbands for driving into and destroying various objects. Other more interesting and perhaps strange ways are going at a certain speed or driving a certain way. For those that pride themselves as having driving skills this should serve as a test of genuine skill. The plethora of ways to win wristbands will keep any racing enthusiast busy for a very long time.
Forza Horizon Game Play
As I mentioned there are still races that you can enter, but there is a nice variety to keep things fresh. Maybe you fancy taking part in a drift race? Well you can do that. How about a little off road action? Well you can race like that as well. One exciting and refreshing Forza Horizon feature is that while you are driving around trying to get as many wristbands as you can, you will come into contact with other drivers which you can challenge to a race!
Forza Horizon is a great entry into the series; And while Forza Horizon may not be the direct sequel that many fans had wished for, no Forza fans will be left disappointed.
