Obviously this game is one big commercial party for the movie, but we must say that this add-on does offer more than just demo-like gameplay. Ignore Ludacris and focus on unlocking eleven new cars, drive online and feel that awesome freedom that comes with driving in Forza Horizon 2.
A lean tie-in that at least provides some great-looking new cars, a boost of nitrous, and a short but appropriately themed set of races. It’s fun while it lasts, but it’s also proved to be disappointingly built around recycled maps and events.
A great “demo” for fans of the film series who want to check out Forza Horizon 2 while also getting a dose of the film franchise they love so much. The game does a great job of giving players a taste of the Horizon 2 experience as I was able to complete the main story in approximately 3 hours.
If you’ve yet to try Forza Horizon 2, this standalone expansion might prove a good way to figure out whether you want to – especially since it’s free through this Friday, April 10th. I’m not sure, though, what existing players will get out of it that they didn’t get playing Forza Horizon 2.
Awesome and its free to the 10th April. I haven't played full game,I didn't really like the demo before release but this has changed my mind about the game. I will be purchasing the full game when possible which was there tactic for giving for free, it worked! More free content like this please Microsoft, well done.
Just to clarify, I'm framing my opinions of this game around its current €10 price tag, not its initial two-week free period, so as to have a parallel between content and value.
For what it's worth, essentially now that the exclusive cars you got in this game are now in the main game as DLC, Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast and Furious isn't a bad little spinoff. You get 11 cars (an additional Huracan was unlockable through Forza Rewards*), the French portion of FH2's open world (sans Sisteron), a well curated soundtrack compiled of some of FH2's existing soundtrack with two exclusive songs (plus excerpts of the Furious 7 score), and the same Forza Horizon gameplay. As a free game, this is an awesome amount of content, but for €10, I'd only recommend buying it if the showcase events and the story interest you, which is okay at best. Still though, it's not a regrettable purchase. In context, it's actually still a pretty good bargain, considering what else you can get for that price, *cough... CoD:AW DLC cough*. I still recommend getting the core game simply for the amount of content and replayability it provides, but his is still a fun little standalone addition to your Xbox One game collection. Just make sure you've got a spare 12-15 GB!
Personally, if this game wasnt free I would tell you not to pick it up, there is nothing new about this expansion, its just more forza horizon 2 with zero additional content to make this interesting, if you ahve beaten every race, unlocked ever car and got every achievement in forza horizon 2 this is the game for you, if you havent, just play horizon 2 some more, youll get the same experience.
It gets a 7 rating because it plays just as well as its base game and has really easy achievements, I was hoping for some cool chases, stunts and action a la need for speed the run but all i got was the same old races in some different cars with only one radio station to listen to.
worst ever for free its unrealistic and completely impossible to beat aka 2nd race has you racing a military chopper that always regains the lead and I might add the drifting mechanics are horrible it shows on this race !!! save yourself some time and Hard drive space !!!
