My inside geek says no because this runs at 30fps but this looks too good to pass on so I'm officially a day one buy for me.

Looks cool, too bad these guys suck at driving in this game!

Game looks great. I loved Forza 5, but nothing wrong with a slightly more arcadey version of it to mix things up.

Sound, graphics, gameplay, impulse triggers...action. That game looks amazing!

Ever since Test Drive on the IBM PC in 4 colour CGA mode (25 years ago) I've wanted to crash a car through the railings and plummet off the side of the mountain into the sea. Am I asking too much? :)

@bigrod69 I dig horizon 2 mainly for open road racing and WEATHER!!! weather was my main complain about forza 5

@Zicoroen The impulse triggers really do feel nice especially so for racing games.

@mattcake Yeah, the cracked windshield effect on my C64 didn't really simulate driving off a cliff.

Exactly. But it will be a Halo 5 feature too. Every weapon have it's own rumble.

@bigrod69 @mattcake Weird thing is those old games were kinda open world way back then.  I can't recall which Test Drive exactly, but I remember driving off-road and coming across stuff, like I think there was an airport.  I think you just had to drive carefully/slowly to not break the windshield :).

There's a difference to pretending to be a professional race car driver and having fun actually driving in an arcade racing game! At some point you'll get tired of scoring low and would very much like to step your game up and you know how that's gonna work? I can tell you it won't be by sucking at driving like these guys are doing!! I'm a big fan of arcade racers but last i checked Forza always leaned in that professional racing sim category like Gran Turismo or something, when you say arcade i'm thinking Burnout or Midnight Club!!
