Just from that GIF alone it looks a wild ride.
And that GIF is all I'm to be looking at for it.

The Showcase events are everything that's wrong with old style racing games. Easily the worst part of the Horizon games.

Out of interest, what do you mean by "old style racing games" and by contrast what are "new style racing games" and how are they different? I've never understood the hype around the showcase events - they collectively last about 30 minutes compared to the rest of the massive game they're in, and when broken down are just time trial events - you can't impede or alter the progress of whatever scripted things you're racing against and have to get to the end before they do.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

They're a bit like modern shooters in story campaigns, lots of explosions when you hit certain triggers. Smoke and mirrors.

Old style racing games = rubber banding, no AI. The showcases in Forza are the same, the faster you go the harder you make it for yourself. Likewise the plane, train, spaceship go slower if you go slow. It's not fun, it's really boring as it's playing itself and I have no input in to the experience.

I play games to be challenged, to beat the computer, people or whatever. When I want to watch explosions, or other pretty things that don't require my input then I'd rather watch a movie.

I must admit that while I love the Forza series I skip the showcase events if I can as I agree that having set piece sections like spectacular jumps over trains just somehow ruins it.
It's great for spectacular promo video's but not for the actual game.

So I've seen if you buy the digital game you get it 4 days early or something, does that count for Gamepass too?

No, Game Pass members get the standard edition which comes out on Oct 2nd. The Ultimate Edition gets it 4 days early.

That’s when you know you’re onto a real winner, as this simply is without a doubt The Witcher 3 of automotive racing games. It’s just brilliant, and there’s so much to be excited about in Forza Horizon 4, it’s almost impossible to detail every little nuance that makes Playground Games’ latest installment in the open-world series so astonishingly beautiful and incredibly unique.

Has Playground Games done it again? The early returns are promising.

BY RYAN MCCAFFREY After three stupendous Forza Horizon games, each better than the last, it becomes difficult to come up with new superlatives to describe Forza Motorsport’s open-world, more social-friendly spinoff (that, by the way, is even better than Motorsport). So here we are, with a Britain-based Forza Horizon 4, and after playing the first two hours of the campaign – experiencing the Summer and Autumn seasons in the process – I’m left with one simple word: “yes.”

That second comment seems to describe roundabouts correctly, though I have to question whether that manoeuvre is exclusive to Audi and BMW drivers.

And inside that house there is a smaller version of you playing the game…how deep does the rabbit hole go?

Not that you'd be able to see such a thing in place.
