TC | Forza Horizon 2 Review: A Driving Game That Could Even Win Over People Who Hate Driving Games

techcrunch: "At heart, Forza Horizon 2 is a game that you can easily get lost in. I was not expecting this, provided it sounded to me initially like a more restrictive Grant Theft Auto-style experience. You actually never end up feeling like you’d rather get out and walk around, and the car customization and purchasing system provides plenty of motivation to keep playing for completionists, even if you’re not a huge fan of driving (though Horizon 2 makes this part of the experience as pleasurable as possible, too)."

I agree , I seriously hate driving games but I'm gonna buy FH2 anyways.

It won me over. The last racing game I bought was burnout 2.

Just bought it and installing now. I have almost no interest in cars or racing.

That's my gamertag^ add me. I need friends to play with to make the experience a whole lot better.

Exactly! Last racing game I actually played and cared about was burnout revenge. I never would've even considered getting forza horizon if I hadn't tried the demo! Never has a demo won me over like this for any game.

ThanatosDMC1478d ago

I disagree. Burnout Paradise has that title.

Loving this game so far.

I really like the Forza series, but I'm not really "car guy".

This is the most fun I've had playing this series or any driving game really.

It's like Forza 5, but they turned up the fun factor by 10x.

Forza has never disappointed, it's just bad that a lot of haters follow brands instead of enjoying a great game of this magnitude. They will do their best to create bad energy about a game they have never tried.

I recommend this game to everyone. Been a fan for years and this latest installment is looking awesome. Enjoy.

That's what happens when they allow spite to cloud genuine passion for entertainment.

Foehammer1478d ago

Well said

they don't call Forza the highest rated racing franchise for nothing.

I have ordered the ultimate edition, purely based on playing the demo.... It appears to be all kinds of awesome

brotherlymoses1478d ago

Agree, I'm not a big fan of racing games and I'm still buying Forza horizon 2, why? I played the demo and fell it love with it. I tried other games like Forza 5, but didnt like it

that Horizon one and two have turned out to be great games, if you consider the amount of talent in that DEV team. You have the Bizzare Creations ex staff, some of the original colin mcrea rally devs to name but a few. These guys could really steal the lime light from turn 10. But turn 10 should be congratulated on creating a brilliant but accessable physics engine.
