Forza or Forza Horizon: Rounding races or exploration and adventure?

For many years, the PlayStation was the best choice for racing game fans, as Gran Turismo has been a classful since the nineties. However, Owners of Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and PC can also access race pleasure of the top class. Thanks to the Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon.

These are closely related, but nevertheless completely independent gaminghen. The most important difference between the two series is quickly explained:

How different are the Forza Motorsport Games?

  • Forza Motorsport (often called only forza) wants to be a realistic racing simulation. As such, she sends her to real racetracks such as the Nürburgring, Silverstone or Spa. This is the most authentic racing feeling as possible.
  • Forza Horizon is playful and adventurous. As part of a festival, you explore huge areas of free ride and instead of professional round courses carry your races on highways, forest lines or beaches. The substantive variety is greater, the title is therefore not only aimed at inserted racing game fans.

Technically, Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon are very similar, only the driving physics are regarded by Forza Motorsport as something more realistic, as the series is rather towards simulation, while Horizon relies on arcade action. The vehicle selection is extremely large for both titles and overlaps over wide parts. The only downside: Some vehicles can not earn you, but you have to buy your DLC.

Due to the enormous success, both rows regularly get new offshoots: Forza Horizon 5 appeared at the end of 2021 and set new standards with the Open World in Mexico, Forza Motorsport will probably go around a year later (autumn 2022) in the eighth round.
