Forza Horizon 3 and Hot Wheels are dipolar entities in the racing game universe. Forza Horizon 3 prides itself on verisimilitude, with everything from car performance to race tracks to the details of the cars themselves designed to look as realistic as possible. Conversely, the Hot Wheels franchise (both the toys and the video games) are fun and cartoonish, taking real-world cars as a departure point for zany courses, impossible physics, and smashmouth racing. The new Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels video game thus promises the best of both worlds.
The Xbox game is a perfectly balanced hybrid of the things that make each separate franchise great. People play Forza for its unparalleled physics engine and stunning graphics, and people play Hot Wheels to whip around fantastical loop-de-loop tracks with silly, unreal vehicles. The new game promises the physics and graphics of Forza with the adventure and fun of Hot Wheels.
