E3 2012: Forza Horizon isn't just a watered down arcade racer. Its the game you already love in an open world setting.
Lets hope so.

Authentic Forza DNA The absolute best physics in any driving game available today. Setting the standard for online play. Unmatched graphical beauty. The open-road thrills of Forza Horizon are bolstered by the same DNA that has gone into every Forza Motorsport game. Developers Playground Games have worked to infuse Horizon with unrivaled innovation, while keeping and improving upon the same heralded Forza features you know and love.
It appears to have the same "authentic" Forza marketing speak and BS Bingo words, let's just hope that indeed they are being honest about keeping the good FM4 physics.
Of course I would prefer to have the added tracks and career mode as a DLC to FM4, but of course that would probably make tons of people complain about paying for it as DLC (i.e. as happened for the Porsche add-on).
The more I hear and see about this, the less I want to play it.
Combining music culture and cars doesn't work for me. Every racing game I play, I mute the soundtrack if I can. I don't want to be hearing "WUB WUB WUB WUB" the whole time I'm driving.
For an "action" game, it looks really dull in the videos.
I find myself wanting a new and GOOD rally game after watching the point to point races.
I blame pilot error. A console is just a PC with most of the non-gaming bits stripped out. i7 3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4 GHZ 8 GB DDR3 RAM NVIDIA 680 2GB HAF X Full ATX Tower Win 7 64 Home Premium
