I was hoping this would be a little more Fast & Furious.

It’s basically a really big Forza Horizon 2 demo with movie cars and Ludacris’ voice handing out missions. Still fun though. The game was around 3 hours long and an easy 970 achievement points. This also has 500 Forza Rewards points if anyone is into that.

I had a great time with this! I actually own a copy of FH2 that I just haven’t popped in yet, being consumed with other games at the moment, but this was a great little taste of Forza. If you should by chance own an Xbone and aren’t sure if Forza Horizon is for you, check this game out. It’s short and sweet.

It reminds me of Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. All the great gameplay from the Dead Rising series, but compressed into a nice short time span. That’s still my favorite Dead Rising game. Similarly, this is basically Forza Horizon 2 compressed into a tight, excellent experience. There is no music repeated from Horizon 2, it’s all new music, and the missions are similar but not the same as in Horizon 2.

I have to admit, I love the smaller car collection, the new music, the variety of the cars they’ve chosen. Just like with Case Zero, for me it’s just a better experience than the game it’s based on.

I now have 5 out of the 10 cars, so I’m guessing I’m half way through the game.

Hot Damn, this game is awesome. I’m loving these super-powerful, verging-on-uncontrollable muscle cars, and the contrast between that and the Japanese upgraded tuner cars and the refined Italian hypercars.

It’s also an amazing coincidence that in Horizon 2, this is the part of the geography from the game that I’ve explored the least. So in this game, I’m seeing several locations for the first time. Like the airfield.

Yeah, I had never seen the docks area before.

I really liked the final mission, which embarrassingly took me 5 tries. Very satisfying ending that felt like it could’ve been part of their movies.
