Forza Horizon 3

Set in Australia the new Forza Horizon 3 was released yesterday and it is a cracking racing game with great graphics and car handling.

You now have the ability to create your own Horizon Festivals and races to suit your tastes after you reach a certain level to open up this option.

There are 350 different cars in the game and many more will be added via DLC.

Forza at its best.

10/10

Always enjoy the Horizon games, much prefer them to the Simulation Forza game which is a little too much in depth for me. One thing that bothers me about Horizon though is that once you've finished the single player career, it has very little replayability and I end up getting bored and selling it on.

Been out of touch with gaming like this for a while but just got a gaming laptop and have had my eye on this game...

Is it OK to play this with keyboard and mouse or would I need an xbox style USB pad? I don't really want to buy a wheel.

Probably best off getting an XBOX style controller for the laptop. Also with CrossPlay you pnly need on copy and can play across PC/XBONE if you want; saves stored in 'the cloud'

I have completed the campaign in 3 days but there is still lots to do and collect in this great racing game.

With regards playing games on a PC an Xbox wired controller works by simply plugging it into a USB port and enabling it.

This controller works on most games for PC.

Cheers just ordered 2 x 360 USB controllers off beat for 15.

But I've just noticed that Codemasters had Toybox Turbo out in 2014 - A new Micromachines game So I'm going to have a go on that first and get us all crowding round the screen just like 20'or whatever years ago

The thing that I enjoy most about the Horizon games is just exploring the landscapes. It's modelled so well that you can almost visit a location without hopping on a plane.

Big fan of the series.
