Forza_Horizon_boxartSome times, it’s fun to go back in time, and remember what racing used to be like.
At the moment, you can download and play Forza Horizon (1) for free, if you are an xBox Gold user.

Forza Horizon is a fun game, that i forgot i had tried some years back. Honestly, i never played this game that much, because it felt wrong, but i just downloaded it today, and spent some hours on it. It is actually a fun game, with decent mechanics and a lot of action.
The cars are very forgiving, and the game focuses on high packed action, loads of races and high pace, both in the races and in the gameplay. It feels like you are doing good progress at all times, and you’ll have fun doing it!

That being said, Forza Horizon won’t make you a better driver. It encourages bad driving, nudges, cutting corners and gennerally driving wrecklessly. Don’t buy or download this game, thinking you’ll use it to practice your driving. On the other hand, if you want some light hearted fun in fast cars, wrecking and passing other racers, then this is exactly what you need.

The game was released in October 2012 and was the fifth installment in the Forza series, but is gennerally considered as a spin off series of the real Forza Motorsport series. Forza Horison 2 was released September 2014 and we are currently waiting for Forza Horizon 3 to be released at the end of September 2016.

Being almost 4 years old, this game is not breathtaking any more. The graphics are a bit flat, and the interface a bit clumsy. Non the less, it is a lot of fun, and still looks quite good. the game was released for xBox 360 but is backwards compatible, so you can play it on an xBox one with no problems what so ever.

Forza Horizon is placed on an open world map, where you basically have to drive around looking for races, and challenges. In between races, you can challenge random drivers that you meet on your way, as well as being awarded for driving fast and recklessly at certain areas. It feels a bit like Need For Speed, or GTA. This is really not a bad thing. What got me into sim racing was the old Burnout series, and Forza Horizon brought back those memmories of happy days, fun driving and chaos.

Go ahead and download your free copy of Forza Horizon as long as it’s free. It’s not a game i can imagine anybody spending money on, but for free, it’s a lot of fun. The offer is valid until September 15th

About The Author

I've been hooked on racing games, ever since the Burnout series back in the late 90s and after going through some painful years trying to learn the F1 series games, i am now hooked on Forza. I am not the fastest on the track, and not a fanatic, but i enjoy sim racing a lot, and try to get better and faster.
