So I got the Forza Horizon demo this morning (First thing, actually) and I have to say I'm pretty excited about it.
Does it still have the customization the rest do?
Not in the Demo, at least. I'm sure they will. As you drive around free roam, there are red "Upgrade" signs you can smash into that give you 1% off upgrades, and there are 100 of them total. So I'm sure upgrades will be included, just not in the demo. I'm pretty happy with the gameplay so far. It's free roam, it's got a day/night cycle, and you can drive offroad down gravel paths. At night! Plus its got Forza mechanics, so it all feels pretty good. Other "Events" that were in the demo were a race where you drove a '70 Mustang Boss, and you were racing to checkpoints against a P51 Mustang. So there are some pretty fun challenges to be had, it would seem. The other two were your regular races, one on the street in a new Viper, and one on a gravel path in a Mitsubishi Evo.
@Hikaro: I'm sorry to hear about the passing, but they both sound like awesome people.
