After 4 weeks, every weekend, trying to get some feedback for Forza Community via FB - I've finally taken to TA to just give you a heads up and true expectations of this game. Its clear they have got their head in the sand on this in relation to issues, updates, multiplayer, and mobile platforms.
If you've ever played CSR racing - its a similar setup when timing of actions are more important than actual driving skill. CSR is side scrolling, where this will be full 360 drone mode during races lasting between 45- 55 seconds.
**THIS IS NOT A QUICK & EASY 1K**
Your life will be made easier with money, and that's what they want. The balance is completely off early on and will become annoying barely keeping up with the 1* cars. If I knew now what I did then, I would have put a lot more work in early on to upgrade and spotlight events as THESE are key to your tuning packs early on. If you just jump in and out, you'll progress slowly. The want your purchases early on, so bare that in mind at every level in crease.
Luck is also a big part in this, as Episodes become vehicle specific in 2 & 3. Make sure you check the link here to give you specifics into Episode 3-> Few tips before Episode 3
Its repetitive, minor customisation on cars depending on star level, as has absolutely no soundtrack at all. This IS an arcade game at best, that belongs on mobile - so if you've not played this yet (hopefully) by the time you read this it will be available. Having completed all Horizon's this resembles the franchise very little. A small selection of the 702 cars make it over, none of the scenery from Europe in Horizon 2, Australia in 3, and nothing from Scotland in 4.
Energy bars refill every 4 minutes, so at level 19 - it takes 2.5 hours to re fill back to 38/38. If you don't stay on top of this game - like I said - progression is SLOW!
They may polish the game, and re-format the gameplay for iOs / Android but its 90's arcade via Windows 10 laptop / tablet. 3GB download as well...
