              @barters81 Did you play the other Horizon games?

                Nope, not yet. I’ve had my first Xbox for about 2 weeks and been busy smashing through Halos and Gear of War Remastered (which is fantastic by the way). I’ve not got a Gold membership yet as I originally got the One S as a 4K blu-ray player, but finding I’m actually playing it a fair bit so might. I think I missed out on the free Forza Horizon via that this month.

                As a total PS4 fanboy I must say I’m very much enjoying the Xbox one. That controller as much as I’d hate to admit it is better than the DS4. I like the clicky buttons.

                  Have you got an Elite? If not – best controller ever. And would be perfect for Gears, Halo and Forza.

                    Nope, but I can’t see myself paying $200 for a controller for a $399 system either. As much as they’re no doubt awesome.

                        It’s probably the best racer of the past few years. Good balance between sim and arcade game. I’m not as big a fan as the reviews paint, but there’s a crap load of great stuff to do and you’re constantly being rewarded. Looks amazing, too. Get it.

                          Got a tip for getting high skill point chains:

                          1. Buy a car with really good handling and high top speed (at least 250km/h).
                          2. Head to the outback.
                          3. Drive along the long stretch of road – there are two that run parallel from one another.
                          4. Drive straight along it and try to weave in and out of traffic at high speed. You’ll get a “speed” bonus, “daredevil” bonus, and “close call” bonus.

                          I’ve earned like 60,000 skill points in like 2 minutes doing this.

                            Ok, what you’ve written and the fact I’ve not played previous Forza Horizon games has convinced me to pick this up. It does look pretty sweet.

                                So I’ve played this game a bit now and think it’s fantastic.

                                Scenery looks wonderful, and I love driving through bits and pieces of Australia. IMHO they pretty much nailed Surfers and Byron. Car models are crisp and believable with a very high attention to detail across the board.

                                My 350km/hr Torana takes some beating when I can keep it on the road. Still haven’t got the cash for a really expensive car having taken the opportunity to pimp out a few Aussie favourites. The Sandman is a beast, as is my SS Ute. I’m going to have to get me a fully flexed GTHO and old school Monaro too. Some great Aussie classics….

                                Racing is racing and there are only so many ways you can keep a racing game fresh as the player drives through their ump-teenth contest. But a variety of race types, constant progression and a vibe that keeps the frown upside down makes for an addictive game.

                                It’s the vibe and ah, no that’s it. It’s the vibe. I rest my case :)

                                Go and buy it.

                                  Just finished the last Showcase event. Have a little more to do with expanding the remaining locations etc.

                                  One thing they get right, frustratingly, with this game is the money. Other car games I’ve played in recent years tend to give away cars and money way too easily, so you rarely get accustomed to a specific car before moving on to the next. In FH3 you can’t go around wasting your money willy nilly and expect to be driving top cars. This gives a greater appreciation for each car, and for when you finally save the $$ to buy a better car.

                                    I actually disagree. I found that you earned money *too* easily and that cars were given to you at every opportunity. Also, my version of the game gave me “VIP” status so on every slot spin I got double credits.

                                      Though I must admit coming home one day and my son having spent over a million CR on random cars probably places a different spin on my experience with it.

                                        Have fallen in love with this game pretty hard.
                                        So pretty.
                                        The cars definitely don’t handle realistically on the beach though.

                                            Well just come to say that this game is the shit.I havent had so much fun in racing game since the original need for speed most wanted. Surfers and byron look pretty on point in my opinion

                                            @doyl I agree with you on the handling on the beaches though.

                                            nothing compares geyting in your maloo doing doughies on the waterfront at surfers hahaha

                                              Yeah it really is a great fun game to play.

                                              HEads up…..the first DLC is coming December 13th in the form of an Alpine pack. New cars, new races and of course racing in the snowy mountains with a new blizzard weather system too.

                                              I’ll be grabbing this for sure. 5 years ago I thought I’d never say this……I love me some DLC (on games I like and where it’s worth it).

                                                Anyone get the dlc?

                                                I might grab it sometime over the holiday period. Thought I was over this game. Then had a play a couple days ago and realised how great it is again.

                                                  Yeah I grabbed the expansion dlc bundle. Its pretty amazing actually. The blizzards are fun with virtually no visibility and its exactly what an expansion is. Just more races bucket lists roads to explore beauty spots etc plus ken blocks gymkhana ford focus which is prettu fuck to go round drifting in. Well worth it I think; can’t wait to see what the next expansion is
