Forza Horizon 2
I'm so excited for Forza Horizon 2. I think it will be awesome. My favorite car, the 2014 Corvette Stingray, is in the game. I will have at least 3 of those in my garage. I'm so excited for this game, I can't wait till it comes out.
the best game iv played on xbox 360
best game turn ten has made really loved the first one and the second one is amazing hope to pick it up again soon
Not even half as good as Forza Horizon 1
Please, please, please read the reviews or check out the XBOX 360 pinned thread on the Forza Motorsport official forum. The XBOX 360 edition of Horizon 2 is so crippled that it's astonishing such a game was allowed to be published. TONS of content simply isn't present, the game was intentionally excluded from the rewards program, so none of your achievement or anything count, you cannot get gift credits, you can't tune cars, you can't do about half the races that are in the XB1 edition, and so on.
The worst part is that they did it on purpose. In fact with the latest update to FH2, they actually REMOVED two of the game modes from the game!!! That's right, you used to be able to do King and Infection game modes in FH2 360. They just straight up removed them from the game entirely because they decided that the 360 edition wasn't crippled badly enough to begin with. Just wait until you have an XB1 and can buy the "real " edition of this game if you want to play it, otherwise stick with FH1, which is still a great game for the XBOX 360 platform.
Seriously, I'm disgusted by all these poor "reviews"... I believe to give this game anything below 6 out of 10 show you just did not play the game at all... While I get everyone has their own opinion and taste in game selection, that doesn't mean this game is bad at all! As a hardcore Fan and long time supporter, this game is familiar and is still very refreshing! It does a good job at bring high quality car models to a simple casual racing game. I think it offers something for most people. Now if you are looking for some super long, detailed story, this is not that game. But this game isn't about that, it's about collecting each car and enjoy making them your own. So to the casual gamer, just to beat the final event, it should take you a few hours, but if you want to collect everything, yeah it might take you quite a bit.. I'd recommend it to any racing fan, to those who aren't big time fans of the genre, I'd say hold off until the price drops a bit more however, still a great purchase in my opinion.
Beautiful game with ugly bugs for Xbox One.
Pros: Graphics (cars and map look amazing), car selection, customization and tuning, realistic handling (nothing too arcadish). Cons: Medium sized map and not completely free roam like they claim (due to invisible barriers all throughout the map), many bugs that have not been fixed even 2 months after the game has been out (preventing many players from not being able to play online and some losing content, cars and such, and sound and visual glitches that make the game unbearable at times), rains too often (rain looks beautiful but when it rains almost every 5 minutes it gets old), boring story, and repetitive missions/gameplay, and annoying drivatar[d] system. Pre purchased this game as DLC on Xbox one. Have been almost completely unsatisfied and do not feel I have gotten my moneys worth. After this and Forza 5 flop, I do not plan to purchase into the ongoing franchise. If only they'd wait till a product was finished to release it.
Just Forza Horizon in Europe.
After being a Forza fan ever since the first motorsports came out, I was very disappointed with the hype of Forza Horizon 2 with weather changing, glorious graphics and freeroam once more. Until I found out all that bullspit was only for the Xbox One. After seeing videos of a every level VIP prize of either cars or a large turnout CR, I thought it would be worth, only to find out what they've done is use the exact same engine they did in the first Horizon and moved the fracking location to Europe. Then when I wanted to go and join a free roam. What do you know? There isn't a fracking public free roam. You need you have your friends waste $50 on the same game to be able to slightly enjoy it. The "story" mode is complete poo, You do maybe 40 races then you need to do the same 40 races 10 times each to "master" the destination. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THIS GAME FOR 360
I was really excited about this because im a follower of the forza franchise. Unfortunately there were a lot of missing details on the game that makes it a "Forza" game. I was ok with the fact that there is no weather in this version of the game. It was the fact that they cheaped out on the tuning of the cars and there is no drivetrain and engine swaps. It really depends on an individual, but i personally enjoy messing around with cars and changing the characteristics via engine swaps and tuning (One of my top reason why i got into the whole franchise). If i had known this first hand i would have not gotten this game. This is a HUGE disappointment coming from a forza fan......
Xbox 360 Version Not So Great!
Now Forza Horion 2 is a GREAT game but thats on the xbox one and let me tell you i've seen 360 gameplay and the graphics on the cars and world are not fantastic, the first horizon looked better to me. By purchasing the 360 version you won't get weather, drivators, amazing graphics, and you will be missing some cars. Clubs are 100 members on xbox 360 (1000 members on xbox one) so before you buy the 360 version at least watch some gameplay before you do. Therefore I will not get the game this holiday and save those $50 for the xbox one and then get the game!
Waist of $50
I preordered Horizon 2 and waited all summer for this game. On Sept. 30 I was so excited to finally own the squeal to Horzon 1, but not anymore! I loved Horizon 1 and I still play it even today. I expected Horizon 2 on the 360 to be similar to the one edition; however, Horizon 2 for 360 is awful everything looks fake even the cars! The graphics in Forza Horizon 1 were so much better than in Forza Horizon 2!!!! I have owned the game for a grand total of about 30 hours and i plan to take it back tomorrow. I SAY THIS TO EVERYONE DO NOT BUY THIS GAME SAVE YOUR MONEY AND PURCHASE THE XBOX ONE EDITION!!!
I am very annoyed that they are slacking off on the 360 version. I bought a preorder because usually they make great games but they can't even make Horizon 2 as good as Horizon 1. Sumo Digital has ruined this game for millions of people. I am selling my preorder right away because they can't even put in all the songs for the game as the Xbox one version. Theres more barriers. No custom tuning that we were all promised. I will not ever buy another game by Sumo Digital because they ruin this once great game.
