    Forza Horizon 2 improves almost everything from the original chapter, serving as a real sequel able to take the series in new directions. The unexpected vocation of off-road proves to be a winning card, although some might not appreciate the lack of realism.

    The open world of southern Europe, rain or shine, not only provides a great backdrop, but it is an awesome automotive playground too.

    An amazing example of online and offline racing built around an engaging, satisfying handling model with the looks to match. Very, very nearly worth buying an Xbox One for alone.

    It sets a fun vibe without coming off as silly or childish. The racing is serious business, but there are plenty of ways to play that aren't so ardently competitive.
  6. The level of choice when it comes to Horizon’s 2‘s core circuits is surprising and ensures there’s something for everyone, regardless of your taste in cars.

    The most disappointing thing about Forza Horizon 2 is how little it’s improved since the first Horizon. There is still no meaningful career progression or economy. The career is quite literally running a circle around six chunks of Europe, over and over and over again, in the pursuit of colored bracelets with, as far as I can tell, no significance. Canned bucket list challenges and barn scavenger hunts supposedly break up the action if you feel like heading off in that direction.

    Honestly I never heard about forza horizon 2 until i saw a commercial on my tv, and I tried the game on gamefly and it was the best racingHonestly I never heard about forza horizon 2 until i saw a commercial on my tv, and I tried the game on gamefly and it was the best racing experience I've ever had in a game! I ended up buying the game later and I can not put the game down. It is an open world racing game where you can challenge other players, drift your car in sessions with friends, and so much more. For a racing game, this map is BIG, I've seen bigger maps before (JC2, GTA V, Arma 3), but this is a big map for a forza game! When you play forza 5, you can tell that the game was made right, it had amazing driving! Now you take forza 5, and combine it with an open world game like "Grand Theft Auto", and you have an insanely fun game. If you want to play around in an open world with race cars you customize yourself, drag race, drift, and just explore with friends, forza horizon 2 is AWESOME for you! Expand

    I have to start out with this the game is amazing and i love the graphics and the cars are way better and we get Porsche in the game which isI have to start out with this the game is amazing and i love the graphics and the cars are way better and we get Porsche in the game which is awesome. Also when i started out i noticed that u can give every single car all wheel drive which was necessary cause most of the races are a bit off road. I also love the music in the game its great but not as good as horizon but still its a pretty good soundtrack and the physics are really good too. Expand

    A superb driving game that keeps pulling me back months after I will stop playing.
    Graphics, Cars, Sounds Game play is all superb but the only problem I have with FH2 is the fact that the story is so bland after a few races and finales.

    Very boring. What's the point of an open world when you're stuck inside a car? Waste of effort into world building imo. They should stick withVery boring. What's the point of an open world when you're stuck inside a car? Waste of effort into world building imo. They should stick with just track racers. On that note, the graphics were also disappointing, not much better than the 360 version. Sound design is also lacking compared to other racers, overall a very disappointing package. There are better racing alternatives out there on all platforms. Expand
