'Forza' is a car racing video game franchise by Microsoft. Originally starting off as a “serious” motorsport series to attract in car enthusiasts, later entries to the series took a more casual laid back attitude to attract more players to the game. 

The specific “Horizon” tagline that is attached to the series every 2 years is the more “arcade” jump in and drive type game.  These specific “Horizon” titles are praised for the outstanding work of the realistic depictions of the real world locations they are set in.

The fourth instalment was unveiled to take place in the countrysides of Great Britain.  See the stunning comparison images below:

It's crazy how realistic computer games are becoming.
