    It’s pretty much a nailed on cert that any past, present or future Forza Horizon 3 player will want to take to Blizzard Mountain as a matter of priority. That’s because the sheer thrill of racing wheel-to-wheel with some of the world’s best drivers, in the dark, with a full-on blizzard hitting you in the face, is just too much to ever turn down.

    Blizzard Mountain's map may be small compared to the warmer parts of Australia, but there are enough new races and activities that are included to keep fans of the game busy. Forza Horizon 3 was already the pinnacle of racing games; the stunning new environment, refreshingly challenging handling and difficult weather conditions just highlight that fact even further. It is an essential purchase for anyone looking to expand their Forza Horizon 3 experience.

    Albeit a little pricey, Blizzard Mountain offers a completely new scenario, covered in snow and ice. Astounding to watch, it also represents a prominent shift from the old arcade-y driving model to something more challenging and satisfying. The career progression is surprisingly deep, and even if the mere amount of new content isn't as overwhelming as the original game, you'll find yourself knee-deep in the snow for quite a while. With a frozen smile on your face.

    If there's a knock against Blizzard Mountain, it's that Forza Horizon 3 was already a robust package. Australia's bursting at the seams with all sorts of activities, and it'll take dozens of hours to complete them all. Blizzard Mountain's for those who are ready for more, because that's exactly what it is: More. The setting is just a nice novelty. Dashing through the snow is a fine form of escapism from the hot Aussie outback, but it's not an essential one.

    Blizzard Mountain may be small, with a few issues here and there, but it’s still a fantastic expansion for one of this year’s best games.

    Blizzard Mountain brings a substantial amount of content to an already massive game.

    I'm not going to lie, this is a very big disappointment for me. The expansion is expensive and the amount of races is not satisfying (notI'm not going to lie, this is a very big disappointment for me. The expansion is expensive and the amount of races is not satisfying (not mentioning around 8 whole new cars that has been added, heh). The new modes are simple sprints that go off or on the hill, nothing special about it (in comparison to the modes in The Crew that were different than normal races).

    The new customization options are non-existent, the only one is to add winter tires and that's it.

    To progress forward in expansion, it forces you not only to win races, but complete some extra challenge as well. You will need also to complete some of side activities like bucket list challenges, jumps etc. which in normal Forza were completely optional and you weren't forced to do them if you didn't like them (which I actually didn't).

    While every Forza had problems with balancing the difficulties on different races, this is the worst case. In some races I can get 3 out of 3 possible to achieve stars playing on difficulties like "Expert", while on the others I'm struggling to achieve 3 stars playing on the lowest "New driver",

    Many races have barricades with hitboxes that are low detailed, meaning that I often ended up hitting or bouncing the wall that I didn't yet touched. It is really frustrating when you want for example to overtake someone while being really close to a wall.

    The game has still not working multiplayer in groups, meaning that if you want to play with your friend, it will disconnect one of you from the other about 2 races after you connected so you have to reconnect again. This problem exists from the release of the main game and they still haven't fixed that, but instead, they release expensive expansion which adds really little to the game.

    Don't bother buying it for it's full price. Actually, I am the owner of Ultimate Edition and bought expansion pass that guarantees access to 2 expansions for 25$ (which is 10$ cheaper from the original price of the expansion pass), so the Blizzard Mountain price for me was around 12,5$ (considering this expansion being half of what expansion pass provides) and I still think that it isn't worth it.

    Comparing this expansion to Storm Island, first expansion for Forza Horizon 2, which added completely new races(off-road and rally, because Blizzard Mountain added snow races, but those are still rallies). Many new vehicles and customization options for them. It wasn't as bugged as Blizzard Mountain as well. I consider Storm Island to be ten times better than Blizzard Mountain.

    While I consider Forza Horizon 3 to be the best racing game ever, Blizzard Mountain is definitely an example on how not to do an expansion if you want it to be good.
