    Truth be told, I wasn't expecting much more than what was aforementioned in the first sentence, since Horizon 2 (which I'll refer to as H2 from here on out) is still using the Horizon (H1) game engine, not to mention, is obviously running on last gen hardware. So the content cuts and stagnant graphics are to be expected. What had me worried was a different design studio was tasked with programming this title (Sumo Digital) and not Playground (left to focus solely on the H2 XBone title). This move could potentially muddle the physics and gameplay that I found critical in the first title, that made Horizon so fun.

    For the most part, it's all still there. Some gripes I do have may seem trivial, yet don't detract from the game play too much. Mainly it's Sumo's exclusion of a clutch pedal when using a wheel. I currently use the Fanatec CSR wheel with CSR Elite pedals mounted to a Playseat Evolution seat/frame and in the controls menu when configuring the setup, there simply is no clutch pedal pictured and available, unlike H1. The game is still 100% playable, yet it detracts from some "realism" and more importantly, driver control (so hooning is a bit more challenging).

    Also the paddle shifters which stand in as the "LB" and "RB" buttons in menus only function as LB & RB buttons on certain screens, limiting access in the pause menu. This could simply be a bug in the Fanatec firmware i'm using however.

    Now, after reading CarrierOfTime's review, I personally find his expectations too high for H2 on the 360 platform. Hardware and memory constraints dictate what we as 360 users end up getting. It's an exercise of give and take. A dialed back damage model, less "radio stations", emptier fields, etc. etc. are likely because of the 360's limitations. What we get in exchange are more cars, a larger map, more driving space and most importantly, a new Horizon experience when compared with H1. Gameplay tweeks with the unlockable "perks" shake things up and give xp points from stylistic driving more relevance, by allowing players to tweek how they progress with certain perks.

    I gave this game a 7/10 because although it's not as pretty and unshackled as the XBone version, it's still fun, especially with the Fanatec CSR wheel setup. It's basically unfair to compare this game to the Xbone copy because of the hardware differences. Compare 360's H2 to H1, and you'll appreciate what Sumo Digital was able to achieve: A beautiful (for 360), fun, and energetic driving game thats 100% Forza and 0% boring.

Tem gente que ta falando que para obter a experiencia completa, é preciso jogar a versão do Xone... não concordo... se esse jogo foi lançado para xbox360.. tem que ser analisado como jogo do xbox 360... Se vc pegar Destiny por exemplo... ele eh muito mais belo na geração atual... mas a versão de xbox 360 eh a mesma coisa... mas sem os gráficos mais foda. Expand

    Firstly: Notice 0 critics reviews. Coincidence?

    If you're expecting the same game as Forza Horizon 2 on the Xbox One, don't. It's not even developed by Turn 10/Microsoft. It was outsourced to Sumo Digital. This game is a shell of the Xbox One version. It's missing the promised free launch day DLC. Yes it was promised to both platforms. It's missing car types including open wheel cars. It's missing several other cars. It has no weather elements, it has half the radio stations. It's missing key online features such as public free roam online. It has half of the campaign races. It's visually impaired. In fact, it looks worse then the original Horizon.

    Stay away from the 360 version unless you want almost the exact experience of the original Horizon, just in a different location, and wonky visuals.

    This game is a complete disappointment. For 1, it is completely broken, You can't change cars while you're moving or your whole systemThis game is a complete disappointment. For 1, it is completely broken, You can't change cars while you're moving or your whole system crashes, there are completely smooth roads that make your car bounce like a small child in a bouncing castle and occasionally your car will flip 10000 ft in the air while driving on a highway! WTF! and secondly, i am sure they could've managed to put in a simple tuning system into the game, if they did it in fm 4 they can do it here! don't start all the "Capabilities" BS either, there is plenty of space left in the game to code that in! P.S Dirt is NOT meant to SHINE in the crappy sunlight coded into the game! P.S.S I pre ordered the game as any forza fan would, when i picked up the 360 version of the game, they gave me a XBOX ONE CAR CODE!. kms. Expand
