New to Forza series

I got Forza 2 free, but as the disc was warped I couldn't get much done. I was intrigued, as the last time I played a similar game was Gran Turismo on PS2. I borrowed Forza 3 today, and was hooked instantly. Forgot how enjoyable racing games were.

Anyway, as I'm new and have seen that Horizon is completely different. Would it be a game worth getting in the future?

i played horizon, first. i loved it, personally and after i 100%ed it, i went backwards to FM4. FM4 is an excellent game and makes horizon look like a glorified need for speed game, although, horizon is still excellent.

but yeah, get horizon, it is really good.

Horizon is a road based racing game done the Forza way if you ask me ie nothing like Need for Speed. I would get it if you like road based racing games.

Forza Horizon is very good. I would recommend the game to anyone. If you can get hooked on Forza 3, I guarantee you will love Forza Horizon.

I preferred horizon to any other Forza I've played by a factor of 10. The genuine sims are just a bit too serious for me, and the likes of NFS are just too stupid. Horizon lined up all the planets and was just about perfect for my taste in racing games.

Me too, really enjoyed Horizon, I even dabbled in the MP and found it good fun (the party type games anyway). Would definitely recommend the game.

Once I get the 25 race cheevo I'm probably not going to do the regular races again, I'll do the playground races for the rest of the levels. The playground games are fun even when you're losing.

Good game Horizon. A bit like NFS Most Wanted 2012, loved that game.

Will probably get Forza 3 or 4 for the achievement in Horizon.

Buy 3 or 4? I thinking 4.

Both are excellent, but if i had to choose, i would go with forza 4. amazing game first off, graphics are the best in the series, gameplay is excellent, and you are getting your moneys worth for sure! I bought forza 4 day one, and played for 2 weeks straight, and still didnt complete the career. its a long game thats for sure, but so much fun in my opinion!!

3 is excellent, but there's no particular reason to pick it over 4 unless you want 100%, if you want 100% 4 requires an import from 3 AND a Kinect, 3 just requires you to be decent at drifting.

Are you saying Horizon is like MW 2012 or just that you like both games?

I see no similarities between the two games other than they are both about cars.
