I used to be a CoD whore. The rage was calmed with Skyrim. Then I played Battlefield. Then I got my arse kicked in playthrough 2.5 of Borderlands 2. And now, for the first time in my gaming life, I have bought 2 racing games : Need For Speed Most Wanted and Forza Horizon. I got NFS first and played it for a while. Great game, great fun. Great cars, great sounds. Online multi is much harder than solo. I was prepared to put serious time into this game. Last night I started playing Forza Horizons. IMHO, an even greater game than NFS. The map is more fun because you can drive like a hooligan more than you can in NFS. No pigs to worry about in Forza. I miss the driving through tunnels sounds from NFS. The cars seem easier to handle overall, yet when you do make a mistake you're punished for it. I like that when you crash the game carries on with no break. I need to get the wireless steering wheel working.
