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.
