    Anyone go back to Horizon 1 to drive around Colorado and try out all the cars that weren't in Horizon 2?

    You must be kidding. My 360 is in mothballs now.

    Maybe after I finish all the races in FH2 but I don't think so.

    I sometimes miss the hills of Red Rocks. There really should've been more steep hills in the new game.

    Especially ones which don't have steel barriers at the top of them like the ones either side of the autostrada seem to.

    I think I prefer Colorado to the new map. Lots of players begged for the wide open spaces in FH2, but there's nothing terribly engaging about all of that terrain because it just acts like a wavy billiards table -- trucks/SUVs still lack any genuine purpose. The race shortcuts are no-brainers and feel like cheating. Fun backroads are dogged by the temptation to cut corners, and there are fewer fun roads to enjoy because so much of the game's playable area was spent on grass and trees.

    I agree with this. I would have much rather have bounded roads, than vast open fields of nothing but trees. They could have added so much more. The racing was not fun to me, and tuning even less so.

    Yeah. It actually seemed too easy for me.

    I've not gone to FH2, so I'm not sure I technically left.

    Regardless, haven't touched it since my win-rage, a long time now. Another forum I'm on has a thing going so I may start again and try to beat it with less raging.

    Also, Horizon was a perfect opportunity to have fun with Pikes Peak, but whatever.

    Actually, I was just thinking about this looking at the Halo Master Chief Collection. I'd absolutely buy a remastered version of Horizon for the Xbox One, more so if I could import my 360 save. And why stop there... I'd absolutely buy a Forza collection for Xbox One.

    I'm considering playing the first Horizon again, because there's some cars I could drive there that aren't in FH2 such as the homologation supercars. I miss my CLK GTR Mercedes & Mclaren F1 GT.

    I have been nostalgic for the original Horizon lately. And since I can use my wheel with it unlike Horizon 2, I think that's more than enough reason to play it again.

    And as RandomCarGuy said, some great homologation cars are in this game like the BMW M3 GTR, Mercedes CLK-GTR, Nissan R390, and Ferrari 40C, which sadly aren't in Horizon 2.

    I am really ambivalent about FH2 now. The drive model gets to me and the rotation of the races is boring.

    Not even the Porsche pack excites me given how tired I am of France/Italy.

    However I did go back to Colorado recently and its FH2 makes me like Colorado a lot more. There's just more there...

    eg.

    I was really stuck on the last Colorado race and the Rally pack really disappointed me but I perserved and it wasnt half bad.

    Only a year and a bit between achievements!

    Hooked up my 360 to get F1 2013 the other day and man, if FH1 had all the cars in FH2, I'd never leave Colorado. I absolutely hate those stupid cross country races in FH2. It'd be fine if they would have made 'em exclusive to off-road vehicles, but whatever. I know that point has been made over and over. lol I just can't stand those. FH1 just has a better presentation to me. I absolutely love it.

    Just make a rally spec entry for the off-road races. That's what I did with the Castrol M5 I posted the other day.

    The cross-country races are frelling retarded. And this is coming from someone who's usually pretty decent at them!

    Found my old copy of FH1 yesterday and am going to try and finally complete it over the next few days. I'm about 700 points from the Horizon Finale but still have plenty of races to do. Races are starting to get tougher, with Darius beating me in 2 races, although one of them was an R2 race with him in an FXX and with me in the ridiculously powerful Koenigsegg CCXR (wanted to use my MC12 Corse but it was the high roller $1,000,000 race and the MC12 is $750,000) around a city circuit.

    Still powering through Horizon and now have all the street races done and am now the #1 most popular driver. To congratulate myself I ended up buying the LFA, since I may as well enjoy it in this game since it isn't in Forza 7

    Also does anyone know what's up with that weird body stripe thing? You can see it pretty clearly in some of the LFA pics below

    And now the main game is complete! Finished the Champion of Champions and have now got most of the cars that can be bought (everything up to B Class). Now to just finish the remaining Festival races and PR Stunts.

    I sold my 360 and copy of FH1 a couple years ago, but missed Colorado. So when it was made backward compatible for the XB1, I bought it right away and recovered all my DLC cars. Now I'm working my way through the game again. I've completed all the races, beat Darius, and am #1 in popularity. But for some reason, the last barn find refuses to pop. I've finished everything. Not sure what more the game needs to get that last barn find.

    Also, I was very surprised to see online games are still active and full of racers. Kind of thought they would have shut it down by now.

    Colorado looks so good that I may have to invest in XB1X...

    Looks so sharp now, amazing update. I had 70+ file depot messages for cash bonuses from Forza Hub. Started doing some more of the 1000 club tasks, cool stuff!

    Since I already completed Horizon 3 and am not playing it anymore outside of Forzathon, I’m going to play through the original Horizon again.

    I bought all of the DLC back when it was still available and I’m so glad that I can still use it on the Xbox One.

    And I completed the main part of the game.

    Also, doing the final race on Insane difficulty was a mistake. The rubberbanding is so obvious. This is how close it was for me towards the end.

    Well, with that out of the way, it's time to do Horizon Rally and the 1000 Club.

    I've been playing, trying to get the game to trigger the last barn find car. I've completed the game, won every race, won every showcase event, I've completed all the PR stunts, I have 98 cars in my garage, I just don't know what it needs to finally give up that last barn find.
