Blew away my expectations!

I came into this game expecting a repeat of forza horizon 2, It indeed wasn't. The map is HUGE! It has all aspects of racing all in one map. It has heavy offroading, grassland, open fields, hills, and of course cities. Online is a repeat of Forza horizon 2 though, besides the new feature of co-op campaign. There is a lot of dlc but you are definetly not forced to buy it. It's not hard to earn enough currency to get the real expensive cars. In summary, this game is getting even better with the new dlc map packs and continues to be a joy to play. I would recommend giving this game a shot.

Playground put their foot in this one

I absolutely love the freedom to explore. You all killed it with skybox. I sometimes just sit still and watch the clouds go by. If PG made a game strictly about barn hunts I would be all over it. Windshield wiper animation is kinda stiff but thats splitting hairs. Yall knocked this one out the park! More varied weather(Fog, mist, windy) and you will have hit perfection.

Dont kno what these other reviewers are talking about!!

This game is awesome these like 300 different cars and tons of tracks. they have regular racing online and non collision racing, then theres car games like king and infection and so on. If you play this game offline only then you might get bored but who buys race games to play against the computer only? plus the customization is amazing you can do pretty much anything you want if you know how plus can share designs and tuning jobs fore each car and you get payed evertime someone downloads it or uses it or likes it and the game rates it depending on how popular it is. just customizing your cars can keep u buzy for hours and theres 300+ cars to save up for and drive so whats this about after you upgrade you festivals theres nothing to look forward to? Anyways i have no idea what there talking about every forza is awesome and this one is no exception.

Best open world racer ever!

I missed out on horizon 2 but i made sure to get horizon 3 for sure. I look back at my purchase and i do not regret my purchase at all. Not one bit. This a must have game if your into open world racing games.

Just a great overall game!

Forza has honestly struck gold with the open world Horizon concept. It mashed together everything you'd ever want in a racing game from its amazing choice of cars to the rich environment.

Just the right balance of arcade and sim... very fun!

FUN and full of content. Fully customizable in nearly every way. Absolutely beautiful and amazing graphics. I heard they filmed the sky in Australia for 6 months for this game. Near perfection. Highly recommended for all racing fans. Cons?... No VW or Porsche. Nearly perfect 🙂

I have always loved racing games...but, this is by far the best racing game I have ever played...hands down. Also, not to mention....the graphics are amazing! Better than Forza Motorsport....🙂.

Pinnacle of driving games

Horizon 3 has raised the bar yet again for the racing genre! Perfect blend of sim and arcade all the while bleeding graphical fidelity. To sit down and play is to experience much more than just racing. If you like racing sim/arcade games then this is no brainer! BUY IT!

Ultimate Horizon Ever

I've been a fan since Forza was one the first Xbox system. Every year Forza has always came up with fans and gamers request for more outstanding, outrageous challenges and full state of the art custom designs and spaced out imaginations come together. Horizon 3 has the awesome power for environment and creating the ultimate setting for all up to date gamers and beginners. I still am amaze and shocked to the core on what is next on their list of download contents "Keep Going Forward" and continue giving us more challenges and more Horizon character cars and other vehicles to dominate this game. Thank you for giving me a chance to work and design images for the Microsoft industries and Xbox gamers to share...
