You mean Most Wanted 2 don't you

MW2 will be a lot less cartoony arcadey than B:Paradise, not a simulator by anymeans but not the full on aracde Paradise was?

They (EA) love confusing things don't they! Hot Pursuit went NFS3:HP, HP2 and then just NFS:HP and they are doing the same with Most Wanted.

They do realise they will have two games on the 360 called Need for Speed:Most Wanted. I cant wait for some sob story of idiots who buy the wrong one

All corner cutter racers will love Horizons. Me, i'll pass. Knocking down posts for points, drifting, No thanks. The only good thing to come out of the game is the off road rallying. As for the lighting, well its perfect Enduro style events but Horizons? All the nobs who love to drive the Hummer as a wrecking ball in Forza 4 Will love Horizons. Fingers crossed it bombs and Playground and Turn 10 make the perfect FM 5

Wow You dont happen to hate american muscle cars as well do you? No wait don't answer that.....

Forza has always catered for a wide audience, from hardcore WRL style events to the casual stuff we run right down to my 8 yr nephew* in a Hummer ramming you off Yet you seem to have the attitude of a driving snob that is'nt remotely open minded enough to consider the fact a lot of people want this sort of game.

What Horizons will hopefully offer is a very good driving experience, backed by the Forza branding/team and offer the way in to an as yet not 100% succesfully tapped market - the driving MMO.

Test Drive Unlimited (1) proved the market is there, TDU(2) unfortunately didnt quite reach the heights I and many others wanted. Hopefully this game will succeed where TDU failed.

* I dont have a 8 year** old nephew but you get the point
** He's actually nearly 6 months old

so there wont be any 60bhp starter cars then

Dodge charger, Pontiac Firdbird, Shelby Mustang. Yes please. Would rather take a Lambo though

You still have to race in Horizons. It will be a ram fest on the way to the never ending Festival. Does nowt for me.

I loved PGR4 online so have some hopes. Not sure I won't wait till it gets discounted though.

Been waiting for all this gameplay stuff to arrive so I could gauge it. Not for me at all. I love forza "motorsport" not forza "need for speed/tdu/outrun". I'm sure it will be great and looks good so fair played to them. I'll still be at home with FM4 thanks :-)

Oooh I dunno, I've quite liked driving my 18bhp Citroen CV in TDU2 lol

Muscle Cars are ace for cruising, what makes them genrally poorer to race in actually counts in their favour as the slower pace of them make them a good choice to soak up the miles in.

The Lambo's, Porsche's etc are great as well for the fact rather than choosing a car based on how fast you get it from A>B, you decide what to take based on the pleasure you'll get from it.

Its a definite change of style for sure and not to all's taste's, I'm also pretty certain that in certain circles it/Turn10 are going to get slated for daring to do a 'non simulator' Forza.

Interiors

I'm really hoping for for 360 degree interiors, with some extra touches like cars with SatNav's actually having them functional on the dashboard. The dash view in Forza always bugged me that it was 'forward' only (although I understand why - tuning/weigh reduction mods).

Imagine without the tuning you'll be viewing something like the Autovista's interiors, but moving

It looks great, and fair play to T10 for taking a slightly different route with this game. Just not sure its for me, but i'll keep watching this space.

What worries me is that they'll try and incorporate what they do in Horizon, into FM5, and take away from what has made FM what it is right now. If i wanted open world i'd go for TDU or NFS, and if i wanted rally based events i'd go for Dirt/WRC games. But i think it would be detrimental to FM5 to try incorporate those 2 elements. FM1-4 have been as good as it gets in my opinion when it comes to track racers, diluting that by adding those 2 elements would weaken the game. Obviously this is purely speculation on my part, but it wouldn't be the first time something like this had happened.

Some elements for sure, FM has always been great but it lacks for online interaction when you are not racing - the clubs, storefront and auction house could be so much more than they are.

But I don't think they'll change the 'World Tour Career' single player and the various multiplayer modes for the core game

Their stated aim was to have two different games, alternating each year..

I don't think FM is going to go open world or dubstep at all.. in fact I think Horizons gives them the 'vehicle' (Pun intended) to keep all that kind of thing nicely seperated for a different audience.. leaving Motorsport to keep expanding it's own motorsport theme of things..

Time will tell, and I will no doubt get Horizons since I love most driving games (just picked up and loved Driver SF the other day for 10, it's arcadey as hell, but still fun!)..

I hope your right, and it would make sense to have 1 game/year rather than 1 every 2 years. I'm erring on the side of caution i guess.

Suppose it'll give them the chance to see how people react to off road/gravel and real time of day shift. Lets face it, FM lovers have had those 2 things a fair way up their wish list for some time!!??

They could use FH as a testing platform. if they can get the lighting system to work here then it could be put into FM5, off road is a form of motorsport aswell so they could ne testing the model outlibne then put more effort and then put it into fm5. or use the lighting + offroad stuff together to make rain lol

Day/night and variable weather, yes. Gravel/off road, not for me. Not in the main FM game anyway.

Personally, no. As i mentioned earlier, i just worry that it will detract from what has been the main emphasis of the series if they are hell bent on getting it in there. Again though, this is all speculation, as Crazy said, they may keep the 2 seperate if FMH is to be a franchise of its own.

nice, no new info vid preview if you haven't seen too much. Lots of clarifying in terms of what physics it will use (Forza's, unsurprisingly, with the ability to still run all assists off, if you want).

It might surprise some but from a driving rather than a racing simulator view, I'd be up for that

This is on the shelf as 'pre order' already in Game as well.

I'm still not convinced on this game. I just can't seem to get my head around what this game wants to do or be?? It seems its just going to be another cash cow because you can bet your life there will be car packs

I'm quite looking forward to it, it's tdu, only with proper handling and it won't be broken for months on end. Will make a nice change from driving around the same tracks over and over
