It may not look like Forza 4, but frankly I think it feels very similar in terms of the driving model and general feel of the cars. The open world nature allows you to just get in a car and drive. Something that was missing from the other games. Its something that other open world driving games have been doing for a while and it works great in a game with so many cars like Forza.
I skipped Forza 4 because after 3, 4 felt like an expansion pack. The series was getting stale and this was exactly what it needed I feel. How many times can you race the Nürburgring and still have fun?
Does anyone know what all the free cars offered for Forza Horizon are so far. I got the one for playing the demo and there is one on the XBLM for a free car as well. Any more other than preorder bonuses.
