Forza Horizon 2 looks dazzling, plays dirty [CVG]

Visually, Horizon 2 is unmistakably brilliant. When the first batch of screenshots was released, there was an understandable level of cynicism that the images were overly flattering. Yet the front-end menu of the demo we played, in which a Lamborghini Huracán was placed in the middle of a wet road, suggested the visuals were indeed feasible.

Such is the level of detail in Horizon 2 that when it rains, puddles form how you would expect them to in real life, with cracks in the road initially filling up with water until they overflow and the puddles start to form. Unnecessary? Absolutely. But brilliant nonetheless, and resulting in incredible looking road detail.

"Every single car in Forza Horizon 2 has unique challenges and events"

sounds interesting.

thrust1617d ago

Yes it does, another game why I got the xbox one

Ballsack1617d ago

@thrust you sound insecure

On topic this game looks dope cant wait to try it

thrust1617d ago

What about?

If you know then maybe it is you that is really?

MS needs to pick these guys up already. They are great at what they do. Having turn 10 and playground would be great. Playground could also branch out and try their hands on other stuff.

@christocolus pick up who, turn 10? They are already owned by MS.

EDIT: Wikipedia says:

Turn 10 Studios is an American video game developer located in Redmond, Washington. It was established in 2001 by Microsoft Studios to develop the Forza Motorsport series for the Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.

OpieWinston1617d ago

He was talking about Playground

Playground is made of Racing veterans and I agree with him MS needs to pick them up to have two strong Forza devs allowing for delivering diverse experiences.

But Horizon 2 needs to sell better than the first.
It looks great though.

My most anticipated racing game of the year. Forza always delivers. Masterful series.

Sounds like The Crew to me... but still very cool

IrishSt0ner1617d ago

Nah not at all bud, Lead design team on The Crew are the same people who done Test Drive Unlimited 1/2.. there's your real comparision. Horizon is very different IMO.

OwnageDC6501617d ago

I hope they don't milk our tits with DLC....

Charybdis1617d ago (Edited 1617d ago )

Not really concerned about the dlc they could add some regions or car in dlc, fine with that if at reasonable price. Believe they said no microtransactions at launch so at the moment only concerned on how they want to implement microtransactions.

Premiere racing game this fall.

Magicite1617d ago

Obliterated by Driveclub and stomped by Project Cars...and then there is The Crew.

MotherLight1617d ago

Why do you even have to go there, can't good games just be good games without having to compare them all as if one isn't worth playing just because of another.

Such a retarded mind set.

mhunterjr1617d ago

In what way does drive club obliterate this? Physics model? Number of cars? Customization? Size of map? Number of events? Complexity of AI? Social integration? Oh... Just the graphics... Troll elsewhere...

Gunstar751617d ago

LoL ! Obliterated how? Hahah!

WeAreLegion1617d ago

Why do you have to be like that? Can't you just say this is going to be an amazing game or that you're looking forward to it?

tbone5671617d ago

have to agree best racing game this fall on all next gen consoles.

I hope I like this one. I didn't like Forza 5. Maybe racers aren't for me.

IrishSt0ner1617d ago (Edited 1617d ago )

The first Horizon was very different from Forza 4 (same concept Arcade & SIM). I like the SIM Forza 5 for a few races, but the arcade type gameplay of Horizon had me hooked for many hours at a time, it's a lot more FUN.. you might well enjoy as opposed to FM5.
