Ben Salter of MMGN: I had a lot of fun playing Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious, because I was returning to the world of Horizon 2 and forgot how much I enjoyed it, not because of the game itself. It’s great as a free demo, and if you’ve got the quota to spare, I’d highly recommend it to casual arcade racing fans unlikely to buy the full game – there’s probably enough here to get your fix.
With it all repurposed content, however, it’s pointless for existing Forza Horizon 2 players, unless you want the Gamerscore or to try the specific cars. You’ve already got access to all of this, and much more, in a better package. Fast & Furious fans hoping for a fun movie tie-in with the pedigree of Forza will be most disappointed. As a Horizon 2 demo with Furious 7 themed cars, it’s great. But as a licensed game, it’s pretty poor, with little to do with Fast & Furious and nothing in the way of new content. Depending on when you download, it’s either a fun free demo, or a disappointing licensed spin-off that has some cool new cars and nothing else.
