Sounds cool. Only for XBox, right? The kid in me wants to go out and get it!

GTS or not, I could fall asleep playing Forza after F1 2012.

I just wish there was a steering wheel option for the XBOX. Although, playing with the controller presents new challenges.

Is Forza Horizon significantly different enough from Forza 4 to justify buying it?

Also, someone mentioned F1 2012. I have F1 2011 and was wondering if it's worth buying?

Check out this wheel

I prefer the way that Horizon's story is set up. A bit more of a story line. I think the game looks and plays a lot better.

Yes it is. I have '10 and '11 as well.

You should be able to use the "Smartglass" Microsoft app with this game.
The Microsoft wireless steering wheel is not the greatest but its significantly better than the std controller.

Forza is more fun, but GT5 has much more realistic physics. Usually the people who disagree are playing both with a controller.

Not the greatest? It's probably the worst.

My 7 year old son is having a great time in Horizon. The first cars he went for were the ones in the garage-a 2003 S2000 and the M3 (unfortuntaely they only have e92, we have e90-but close enough for him).

Dammit, I knew I should have bought this game when I saw it on the pre-owned section!!! Looks like I'll be making a quick run to Gamestop!

Got this game last week and love it. I liked forza 4 a lot but the same race tracks got boring after a while. Horizon keeps the excellent physics of forza but applies them to an open environment and adds different challenges and some story line. A great buy, I'm considering getting the season's pass as well.
