Forza Horizon 2 has finally launched, and is now available for download on Xbox Live for Xbox One and Xbox 360, and with the game Microsoft also opened the personal gallery section of the official website.
Game looks amazing visually and the amount of features, variety and just pure fun is insane. cannot wait to get home from work and play tomorrow.
Can't wait to play both Forza Horizon 2 and Drive Club, huge fan of racing games :)
Not sure if you got disagrees because 1) you are only allowed to like Forza 2) you are only allowed to like Drive Club, not sure which one?
it's N4G, I'm going to go with the latter of the two choices.. ;)
Who on earth would disagree with what you just said?? I really hate this anonymity. Wish n4g introduced a system where we can actually see who put those agrees and disagrees on a comment.
It's so sad, I actually own both systems for their exclusivity and all and the fact I actually am getting both games. But I don't care who disagrees or not.
It's pathetic that people disagree. Clearly they believe you should bow down to the almighty PlayStation Gods and burn your Xbox One to win back their favour. Oh, and I'm getting both too. I like to play games, not have fanatical brand loyalty.
How dare you like video games! Wait....
I played the game, looks good in photo mode but during gameplay it doesn't feel next gen visually !
its enhanced over horizons 1,and has imported the cars from forza 5. must have been an easy game to make imo
Been working on it for 3 years and it is a rebuilt forza 5 engines, no car imports. This is not GT.
Walker "I pllayed the game, looks good in photo mode but during gameplay it doesn't feel next gen visually !" When compared to what? Have u actually played the game? Its insanely good looking.... To say otherwise is really very odd unless by saying next gen u actually mean what u say.... FORZA HORIZON 2 is this gen ! Where greatness doesn't await, it's here ! What a brilliantly good looking and absolutely fun game this is..

Well it looks better than a last gen game, so it must be a Current Gen Game... ;)
I played it today and then played some Horizon 1... There is no comparison and there is no doubt it is next gen. When the planes fly over the whole environment shakes with feedback on the triggers and rumble, the vistas are absolutely stunning, the handling of the cars feels way different and more natural, and the off-roading rocks. The only graphical complaint I have is in the people animation. But, it is a racing game not people adventure game.
Nice Three more days to go here will be a great social event on xbox.
Im thinking of buying it on the american store, just debating on buying the us gift card online or not :-/
Pretty sure I read someone preordered a game this way and it never unlocked until the UK release. Although I'm not sure if they kept their Xbox set to US. I've also used this region free feature before, works great, although I probably wont for Horizon 2 as it's only £44.99 on the UK store and $59.99 on the US one. That's the cheapest digital release we've had in the UK so might buy this way to show support for the pricing.
The best looking Racing game of all times. Bought it yesterday after work. I didnt want to go to bed to experience it a little more. A beast racing game I have been waiting for long time. If you are a racer this is a must buy.
So have not seen Driveclub yet have you
Everybody has SEEN DC. PCBOX has even been in those threads and commented on the game.I know because I have also been in those threads and commented on how good the game LOOKS. We all SEEN it..but who has PLAYED it? who can vouch for its car handling? who has completed DC and can say its a 9/10 game?..thats right..nobody. Just let the man be happy for the driving game he is happy with. Why does he have to assure you that DC has the best graphics he has seen? Cant you just be content with DC in a DC article? Is it REALLY that hard? That is how I KNOW this game is that damn good (well...I already knew that from the demo). People who dont even own an xbox and have not played forza are coming into forza threads to "remind" that DC has great graphics...cool. We will try our hardest to think about DC, while racing jeeps and lambos through vineyards out on to the cote d'azure, under a starry, fireworks filled sky..Or maybe we will simply be having having too much fun to care. have you PLAYED FH2? Its amazing. Its a game that is worth 9/10s it seems to keep getting. @Dothraki "Why does everybody have to mention Driveclub to appease the playstation crowd?" Just mention it in praising for one sentence, as a disclaimer, or you will get stealth disagrees! LMAO!!
^overkill much? The claim was that FH2 is the best looking racing game yet which is simply not true - no need to go into nerd-rage mode.
@Bloodborn That can be looked at both ways. DriveClub isn't out yet and so FH2 is the best looking racing game yet. As with any game it can't really be counted until it's in our hands. There's been far too many occasions where games have changed before release to be able to do that - just to cover my back, I'm not saying DC has before anyone gets excitable. Once DC is out that will, probably, have changed. Although, FH2 will still be the best looking Open World Racer yet, since it is a different beast.
Why does everybody have to mention Driveclub to appease the playstation crowd???
Great game. So much fun! :)
It was once written... If us xbox fans want to keep our bubbles we need to offer thanks & praise to the PS-God least we be cast out into the realm of the one bubblers. Ridiculed by the 10Bubble Sony Prophets that cast a blue shadow across the realm. We must remain strong, for the great green orb of light shall guide us through the storm and lead us to pastures new. Forza Horizon 2, Sunset OD, Quantum Break and Halo shall bathe us in the warm green glow of gaming but we must not show our emotions, we must remain grateful to the great blue God, the one true DDR5-God For it is only he who can bring true happiness. Hide your allegiances, whisper to thy Kinect, Do not declare your Gamerscore, for the Dementors roam these halls waiting for the weak, to consume and rebrand blue. Ye hath been warned. :)
LMFAOOO dude that had me cracking up hard, specially because it's so true. Bubble up.
In order to not get disagrees.
Yes and to, try to, avoid a massive argument with people that can't comprehend empathy. To anyone reading this, empathy does not mean to feel sorry for, it means to understand someone else's point of view or feelings, whether you agree with them or not.
I just got back from game..Imagine how mortified I was when they told me it does not release here (UK) til thursday. I couldnt sleep last night because I thought I was going to get to buy this today. The guy at GAME would not even take my bribe of £20. He will regret that when he runs out of beer money, later. Guess Ill just play the demo some more, later. Two more days! :)
LoL sorry to disappoint you even more but it don't release here in the UK till Friday the 3rd. I hope you pre ordered whilst u were there you get a free car.
Noooooooooooooooooo! *cries on MagUKs shoulder* Screw it. Im going to attempt to get it early tomorrow. Somewhere in london..a shop keeper WILL be careless enough to sell it to me before friday
Shopto or Simplygames...Buy from there & get it Thursday, I do every release & always get it a day early. A day early & cheapest around, oh & thanks to my postie....
Have it loaded up on my x1 at home. Now, all I need to do is get through a day of classes and I'll be home free to drive through the fields and costal roads of Europe. XD
