Forza Motorsport is better. I think that FMS puts you in the moment more than Need for Speed does. In my opinion, Forza usually has better graphics, and Much more choices for cars.

need for speed is the game for me.

I love driving like a maniac and I just play games for fun even though I play it all the time

Just curious, TibLion, but how did Horizon manage to touch your heart?

Forza Horizon hands down. This game managed to touch my heart and few games did that. The new Most Wanted is not amongst them...

I had decided not to buy Forza Horizon...wasn't too thrilled after playing the demo.  Then, on Black Friday, microsoftstore.com and Walmart were selling it for $15; I bought two copies, one for my bro and one for me.  I've been playing it for a week now and I'm addicted.  First impression was inaccurate; I was wrong to judge this game so harshly.  I dare say I think it's better than Forza Motorsport 4.  It's funner, faster, has more style, better music, open world, amazing realistic roads, still has Forza physics.  Overall, an awesome racing game...LOVE IT!  Nice work PLAYGROUND.  My bro has also been playing the crap out of it.

Despite my love for NFS and Criterion, I picked this up for my Xbox 360. Froza had a better reputation in maintaining quality car race gaming than EA. Shame on me for being NFS and suddenly ditched it for Froza and Dirt 3 :P

For a ps3 gamer just get motorstorm or GT5, or even burnout paradise if you want the same feel as NSMW: Criterion version

Need for speed Most Wanted is the best looking Burnout game.

Forza would look so good on PC... Oh well.

Forza has no Nitrous, NFS does. NFS has no rewind button, Forza does. Forza has real driving NFS has crashed cut-scenes. The only advantage that NFS may have is the ability to change vehicle while in game instantly. But Forza takes the win for replay value.

well for a PS3 gamer, the choice is easy... Gran Turismo 5! go ahead, mock the game all you want, but they put an extreme amount of work into that game! Forza does look gorgeous though.

Why does everything have to be a damn video?  Why can't I read a comparison and contrast of the two?

Forza Horizon at least feels like handling a car. Forza win.

For people who are confused i would like to say Most wanted has no interesting stuffs.No Car Customization,No cockpit view (only 2 camera views ), and No story.

I really like the most wanted 1

I really enjoyed Forza: Horizon, great game overall. I'm still in the process of playing Need for Speed. I'm not going to call it awful, but I can't say i'm too impressed so far.

I'll be getting neither. Besides the fact that I haven't finished NFS: Shift 2 or FM4 yet, the samey environments of Forza Horizon and the Burnout Paradiseness of NFS MW turn me off to those games.

I haven't finished "burnout paradise city" yet, and NFS really looks like a watered down "update" of that game. I think i'll get Forza!

nfs most wanted is soooooooooooooooooo bad compare to the original, no slowing time,no garage... no green arrow to show you the way .and you crashed so easely its just frustrating. i would pay 59.99 for the 2005 version anytime .so go with forza solid value.

OFC Forza , why ? cuz it has more than 190 cars u can drive . or cuz u can at least see the wheel. AND most important thing , it got one mark higher than NFS in GS ^_^

If only Test Drive Unlimited 2 was any good, I'd still be playing that. And I know GRID 2 won't be an open-world racer, but I'm so pumped for that game.

I'd have to go with NFS. Forza Horizon was trying to go for the NFS arcade racing thing. What I didn't like about Forza Horizon was the car handling. If I'm driving 30 mph, my tail end shouldn't be fish tailing all over the place if I'm not accelerating.

 @jyssy12 I take it you were 3 when underground came out.. Cause comparing the two is like comparing Chicken pot pie with a hot dog.

 @TheKokopelli Can't we just visualize the comparison? If we want to read, the previews and reviews explained a lot better.

 @TheKokopelli Pft, no one reads anymore. Who reads now a days? LMAO. It's just the current generation. Then again, years from now, we'll be complaining about why we don't get this in video form anymore. "I hate these interactive holograms".

 @mediarays Huh? Really, no customization? I thought they announced that customization is included? 

 

Isn't this making NFS Most Wanted nothing more than the glorify Need For Speed Hot Pursuit, a glorify version of Burnout with a NFS sticker on it?

If I'm driving at 30mph the car should also be able to turn as soon as I flick the analog stick, yet in NFSMW , it takes about half or a full second to START turning and equally or longer to STOP turning. In real life, when I turn the steering wheel, the car turns emidiately...

 

Games nowadays are gorgeous and look real, but have such unresponsive gameplay, it's almost like they're not games anymore, just technical showcases.

mediarays

 @WillyChong  @mediarays Yup there is little customization there and as you said it feels like burnout paradise and not most wanted at all.

 @ShadowOfKratos Well it sounds like you've never played a Burnout game in their life. All you do is pull the let up on the gas and feather the brakes before you go into the corner.You're completely denouncing the big selling point of MW which is a persistent competitive scoring system to compare your stats against ppl on your friends list.

It's actually a really fun game. I'd say it takes the jumps and open-world easydrive experience from Burnout Paradise, and mixes it with Hot Pursuit 2010's heavy drivng model, and Autolog. The fact that it actually has traffic populating the streets in multiplayer doesn't hurt either ;)

@ShadowOfKratos  Perhaps it is you who needs a better understanding of the english language as your "emidiate" reply and evasion of the point i made demonstrates. 
Anyway, you complained about games nowadays and how they seem like 'technical showcases,' yet you have a Crysis pic in your avatar..
You're a walking oxymoron. Play some Burnout and quit being so uptight.

 @Col0Korn  @ShadowOfKratos Have you forgotten Hot Pursuit?!? Wow, modern game nowadays are so easily forgotten after just one year, compare to games like Warcraft III!

No I've never played a Burnout game in their life. Learn to speak english... Infact learn to make sense.
