Great clip Spy! Watching you play makes me want to buy this again even though I know I should just hold out for Horizon 2.

 

And on that note it's stunning looking at the difference between Forza 5 and Horizon 2. Compare Spy's video to this gif courtesy of Reddit.

FH2 is absolutely gorgeous but it only runs at 30FPS. That said, FH2 looking that good bodes well for Forza6. Also, keep an eye out for Project Cars as that game looks gorgeous as well.

Thanks but yeah it def helps when you have rain and all shiny surfaces. Its gonna be good to have dynamic weather, reading some more E3 previews it sounds great.

Edit: Well looks like I'm getting Forza Horizons, with some credit on my Microsoft account, ended up being a steal.

Update: My god I'm in love with this game and I downloaded the free 1000 Club Challenge DLC, adding yet another layer of objectives to strive for. I'm really liking this soundtrack too, makes me want to know the set list for Forza Horizons 2 as much as the car list haha.

Really contemplating the Rally DLC, thought I got my fix with the DiRT games but I'm really digging Horizons, not enough to get the SP though.

Does this REALLY bother people? If the game plays well and is gorgeous I don't see the problem. The X1 has weaker hardware so you can only expect much. Obviously playground felt doing 30fps was better for graphical fidelity.

*Funny enough the anniversary will run everything at 60fps, and Halo 5 will run at 60fps.

Horizons was a pretty fun game. Wish I could say the same for Forza 5. I was super pumped for this when it came out and really didn't care for it much. FH2 looks great and I will be picking it up.

The fact was the studios couldn't hit 60 FPS because performance of the GPU was locked to the Kinect. Now that studios can utilize the whole system they're more and more devs hitting the 60FPS mark. It also has to do with the developers themselves or the game. The latest Wolfenstein game hit that mark but it's using id Tech 5's superior engine plus it's not a vast open world like say Assassin's Creed: Unity. The thing for this game, they're going for high fidelity visuals with the dynamic weather, physics and open world setting/systems in play.

I surprisingly really enjoyed Forza 5 during the free gold weekend. It just sucks that half the achievements are broken.

Despite the comparisons its had to Drive Club the game really does look pretty damn gorgeous.

 

Still not 100% sure I'll be getting it though, I'm trying to conserve my Xbox Credit to pick up all the games I want this year so the only way I'll end up getting this is if Shadows of Mordor is reviewed horribly (And I hope it isn't!).

I am probably more excited for FH2 than any other game this year right now. Can't wait to play the demo once it's done downloading.

If you are a VIP in Forza 5, you can get $10 off the digital version of either the Deluxe or Ultimate package for FH2.  The price should automatically adjust once you go into the store while signed in under your VIP profile.

Downloading the demo now, it's a hefty 10.42 GB.

Thanks for this, I noticed that I had a $10 discount. However, I think I may either go the Best Buy or Microsoft Store route for the $10 XBL code.

Tried the demo, didn't do the whole demo but played two races.

 

I am not going to say this is my favorite racing game ever based on a demo, but wow this game is great. I think it probably will become my favorite racing game. The drivatar system is amazing, and I just love how you can dial in the difficulty like Forza 5 so it's exactly as challenging as you like it.

 

My only problem is there is too many Fuck ing trees and going at whatever insane speed, it's a bitch to miss. Then again I am sure that can be corrected once I get into the actual game and learn the cars.
