Forza 4 vs Forza Horizon

I thought Forza Horizon would be amazing, but when I started playing, I felt like I was playing some NFS game!

I hated it! Now I have to buy forza 4 again

Forza Horizon is amazing......in its own way.  IMO for that semi-sim console game experience, Forza 4 is where it's at.  Horizon has taken bits and pieces of T10s Forza game and incorporated it into an 'open' world (kinda) arcade-ish game.  It was never intended to take over Forza, if that is what you were thinking.  It (Horizon) has introduced a racing/driving game into the Forza family that will appeal to many of the racing community.  It really is unfair to compare the two, even though they share the same name.  

The two are completely different games. From the announcement of Horizon, they always stated that it would be an arcade racer. This is not Forza 5, which some people seem to forget, this is simply an arcade racer, with Forza in the name. It wasn't even developed by the same people, lol...

Horizon does look really good, it's just not my cup of tea. It is more NFS like. I'm more of a hard core racer myself, so the demo was enough for me. Some of my friends really like it though.

Horizon is nothing like an NFS game and I have played them all. It is a Forza spin on the open road game.

Horizon reminds me a lot of NFS, don't care what anyone says, and I think that's what they were trying to accomplish.  And yes, I love the NFS games.  Comparing Forza 4 to Horizon is like comparing apple's to oranges, both are great in their own way.

In Horizon you can't tune your car, can you? If that is the case, I wonder why they chose to get rid of it.

Can you please describe the similarities between Horizon and NFS games?

 

To me the similarities are they are on the road and use licensed cars. That is where the similarities stop.

 

In Horizon you race.

 

In NFS the events often involve other aspects.

 

In Horizon the handling model is quite realistic and probably the most realistic road based game. It's handling only shows up as casual when compared to FM games. In NFS the handling model is very arcadey where drifiting is king and boost is part of the equation.

 

Horizon has no cops.

 

I honestly can not see why people say Horizon is ike NFS (of course I am assuming they have played NFS games).

You're correct, you can't tune in Horizon. I suspect that tuning doesn't really appeal to the casual gamer. Since this game was marketed towards the casual gamer that's probably why it wasn't included.

That amazes me and it's a reason for me never to bother with it (which is fine, since I'm happy to play F4 until Forza 5 comes out, or, hell, past its release).

.

However, if they want to support F4 and Horizon at the same time, while aiming Horizon at a different market to F4, I'm entirely happy with that and would be fine seeing that more often.

I stayed away from Horizon for that exact reason.  I'm all about tuning and building.  I like being able to take a base model car, upgrade it with all the tunable parts, leave out the horse power and see what how much speed I can wring out of it.
