    Insane that this is a day one release on game pass. We are spoiled! Just wish they had a Toyota Corolla GR Sport this year, as I’ve just ordered one 😬

    again with the easy money and cars.. i don't like this evolution tbh. getting an odd car used te mean something, make you happy or at least put a smile on your face. but besides that, can't wait to get started! :)

    Looks really amazing, can’t wait to try it. I just wish they added more daily drivable cars.

    Car horn could play Hall of the Mountain King in at least 1 other FH game too.

    AROOGA = best car horn though.

    Does it run OK on the regular XBox One?

    Well, no, it couldn't come sooner because it's always at midnight. What an odd expression. Perhaps you mean it can't come soon enough?

    FM8 can't come soon enough. I think there are too many open world games now and they were kind of overblown and boring from the start.

    Can we at-least have a destruction derby in this one or something? Something fun!

    It is the first time in Forza Horizon history that the metacritic, 91 (currently) is lower than it's predecessor. Previous entries scored 85, 86, 91 and 92 respectively.
    It is still possible for the score to change by a point in either direction over the next week or so as final reviews come in.

    It will be interesting to see if/how Playground iterate in the future or if a 92 metacritic is the actual maximum a car game achieve in today's gaming landscape.

    I would like them to spin off and start up a new series and alternate between them to keep things getting stale. Maybe a Forza Underground.. a heavy focus on narrative, street racing, tuning, night and urban environments and police chases etc. Alternate between Horizon and Underground every 3-4 years.

    Can I fully switch off the dreadful music and excruciating "bantz" in this one?

    Just turn off the radio with the D-Pad dude.
