This just looks way to much like Horizon,


Yeah this is a pretty blatant example of copying another game’s homework.

I personally never thought Japan city races or dirt bikes and ATVs would be a good fit for Forza Horizon so I’m glad this Crew Horizon will experiment with these features and prove why it’s a bad fit.

I can neither deny or confirm if I’ve played it as part of insider preview but definite pass for more. Nothing comes close to Forza Horizon.


There’s a potential giant niche as Horizon is immensely popular but is not on Playstation. The problem is that he presentation here seems to be a notch below FH4 and FH5 and the driving model appears simpler and less satisfying (though impossible to say exactly without playing myself).

Driving felt terrible in The Crew 1 and 2. People are reporting that it’s at least better in this game… But apparently still not that great.
