"Good ol' YouTube user Frost Danger has made a sweet comparison video, pitting two excellent racing titles, Forza Motorsport 6 (review incoming soon) and Forza Horizon 2 against each other and comparing the rain effects in both games."
Horizon 2 has much higher reflection resolutions but I would also say that Forza 6 looks less exaggerated. And it looks smoother. Forza 6 also does more with puddles. Overall the game looks the same.
The water looks more realistic in f6. Especially the way it beads off the windshield, windows and wipers. The diffusion in the reflections particularly to light sources are also better. As are the atmospherics and tire spray coming off of the cars. Horizons love is good but f6 looks and behaves way more realistically. It's also more dense
of course i say this from actually owning and playing both games vs this video which honestly could have been done better with in cockpit views.
If I remember correctly FH2 runs at 30 FPS and FM6 runs at 60 FPS that may be why it looks smoother.
Both games look amazing. Played Horizon 2 and still in awe at the visuals of the environment you roll across. And the wet weather is amazing.
Forza 6 by far. Complete different look and intensity while racing. Not even the same ball game. Even the windshield effects and fog effects and back spray in frrza 6 are superior
Considering Forza Horizon 2 is open world, Forza 6 graphics should be better even if it came out the same time or before FH2.
But its also 60fps where as FH2 is only 30fps. Both are great tho :)
True, forgot about that.
@Revolt13 Indeed. Glad I own both as ultimate digital editions. I play em side by side all the time :)
And f6 is also running way more physics calculations.
Forza 6 for sure
Both look very good but F6 for the win here imo. Forza 6, to me, is the best overall racer this gen so far.
Agree You can tell that by the Reviews http://www.metacritic.com/g...
What's going on with the Sparks on forza 6 each time two cars collide? Seems a little unrealistic.
Yup, not just the sparks the sound too, its the worst collision and collision effect ever in a Forza game, hope it gets patched.
Did expect better graphics.
they should have done in cockpit views for this comparison.
