    Arcade racing in a stunning world that is so enjoyable and addictive that topping it seems impossible. [Issue#246]

    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.

    P.s. Do not be surprised some of the comments with low scores. These are just a wave of indignation at the DriveClub, which did not become a "Forza Killer")

InI started Forza Horizon 2 previously having played the 3 and 4 part. As I was surprised when understood that 2 parts are what to surprise. In 2 parts there is a similarity of a plot, there is an interesting card on which Italy and France went in. And the most important in Horizon 2 the most convenient management in all series. It is a pity that a game was already removed from Xbox Live and there is no opportunity to buy DLC or Season Pass for it. Expand

And although this looks so much better that the aforementioned Burnout (as youMost fun I have had with a driving game since Burnout Paradise. And although this looks so much better that the aforementioned Burnout (as you would expect), the online side of Burnout still rules with the plethora or challenges and events. FH2 online road trip is good though, and is thoroughly addictive. Also having the game location within Europe (Med coast) as opposed to some random American cityscape this seemed appealing. Its one of those games you can pick up and play anytime. No thoughts of a trade in here.. Expand

    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
