Forza Horizon Xbox 360 Game Description:
Horizon is an open road racing game that takes place at the fictional Colorado horizon festival. The game borrows much of it’s gameplay aspects from previous Forza Motorsport titles such as TONS of cars (300+), a high end physics engine, STUNNING graphics, and lots of customizations from tuning to liveries.
Essentially you are trying to progress through a career mode by winning events, getting popular by driving fast, wrecking property, and performing daring stunts and tricks. Horizon features the same game physics as Forza Motorsport 4, but gives a bit more of an arcade feel with more dramatic accidents and cars that slide a bit more in their rear end. One of the highlights of Forza Horizon 1 is the ability to take your car off-road in certain places and just explore the map.

Forza Horizon Xbox Reviews From Critics
Forza Horizon Xbox 360 Review – Wrap Up
Horizon is a good game, If you are a sim racing fan, this may not be your go-to game choice, but it is definitely a ton of fun. The graphics and open world are awesome, but arcade nature of the game holds it back from being a show stopper. The fun factor is what gets this game the rating I gave it. If you are looking for an open world racer on the 360 then Forza Horizon is the best open world racing choice hands down.
