It’s not me, it’s definitely you, and here’s why.
You took an extra year (3 years) to add a new map to Horizon 4, and a few new features which are neither here nor there to most players.
And don’t even work properly.
Don JoWong song, your biggest YT supporter, deserted the game on December 5th.
Over three weeks ago.
How bad did you mess up to alienate him!!!
That’s how much you messed up. That’s impressive on a Cyberpunk 2077 level
If you’d taken everything in H4, added a new map, I’d have been on board for 18 months.
But you didn’t did you?
You bafflingly once again delivered multiple 60 second circuits and endless POINTLESS point to points, and as a reward gave Goliath.
If the REWARD for RACING in a racing game is Goliath, then a long circuit must mean something to a lot of people right?
So you give them ONE long circuit!!!
No one credit farms on your pathetic 50 seconds circuits do they?
So give your studio junior a day to create 20 cool 5-10 minute tracks!!!
If I can do it, why can’t YOU!
The benefit of YOU doing it over me, is that when YOU do it, it can be included in RIVALS.
And that’s a cool feature for those who love RACING in a RACING game.
With over a million people doing rivals laps on just S1 Goliath, the question would be, why not do a Reverse Goliath?
Or a reverse Colossus?
Or longer tracks generally?
If over a million people put in rivals laps on S1 Goliath, why mess around with the childish weekly ‘drive this car, turn a corner in this car, fart whilst in this car, take a photo in this location, flip off a cop here’ random BUSYWORK to get 2 Forzathon points?
These are not CHALLENGES, they are an embrassing waste of time
And then make it IMPOSSIBLE to earn weekly cars unless you have multiplayer!!!
And don’t get me started on Forzathon points!!!
I have over 3000 of them.
You know how many I’ve spent?
NONE. NONE. NONE.NONE.
You know why?
Every car in the Forzathon shop?
And 300 Forza points for a wheel-spin?
I’d rather race to get my wheel-spins thank you very much!!!
Oh, hang on, the included courses are so short you can do them in 2-3 minutes!
Seems at least a decent percentage of users want to, oh I don’t know, RACE in a RACING game!
Here’s the bottom line, that all your market research seemed to miss.
You took Forza Motorsport, and at first crested an accessible open works racing game.
And after a few years you destroyed the concept of an open world RACER and filled it with Santa costumes, and other stuff NO ONE GIVES A TOSS ABOUT!!!
And all this is before we get to the current issue.
YOUR game is bugged beyond belief.
You managed to take H4, add a few pointers features, and make it broken beyond belief.
Horizon 4 is and will remain my all time FAVE game of all time (I’m 53 and played video games since Space Invaders and Pong)
So Im no hater. I ante to love H5.
But after the initial gloss passes?
It’s utter poop.
Oh, screw it!
I’m going back to Ride 4, and Motorsport 7.
Horizon is now dead to me.
THREE years I waited for this utter mess.
I have one more question.
What are the chances I’ll pre order H6?
