Looks very good. You can tell it has some work to do but overall I'm very impressed. It definitely has that Horizon vibe to it.

Any 360 footage? With two different developers, I'm eager to see what Sumo Digital's take on it is on the 360.

I have a feeling this will be like Titanfall and we won't see a lick of 360 footage until the game is out in the wild.

The game looks good. I need to start to finish some of my other games before this one comes out. They want you to move over to the xbox one.

The first one was great and I wasn't planning on picking it up but Best Buy had a buy 2 games get 1 free thing going on when it released so I grabbed this as the 3rd game and was pleasantly surprised. Similar to Test Drive Unlimited 2 in ways but with better graphics and car handling.

Must buy for my xbox one!

They're saying that this won't have microtransactions too (at least at launch):

Download the 1080P versions of the videos. They look very nice. Not sure where I downloaded them from. But I downloaded them and transferred them to my TiVo Roamio to play back.

I got a lot of mileage out of the first Forza Horizon, it had a nice, organized layout even though it was an open world game and didn't require you to drive around aimlessly for mile after mile looking for a race.

This will probably be a day one purchase for me as well.

Anyone have this wheel yet? I didn't realize it was already out until today. Just $99.

Thrustmaster VG Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel

I'm not a big wheel guy but I still enjoy Forza 5 and with Horizons 2 coming out soon, I thought I might give it a shot and just return it if it sucks.

Thanks

I am really looking forward to Forza Horizon 2. I enjoyed the first one a lot.

We get a PTO day that we need to take around our birthday. My birthday is the 29th . I had planned on taking the 29th off, but now I think will take the 30th off instead. That way I can play FH2 on release day. And spend most of the day with it.

First one was like crack, I could not put it down....really, I think I got about 95% of the achievements in the game...


Part 2 is pre-ordered from the Microsoftstore.com they were giving a $10 Xbox live credit if you pre-order it....Not a bad deal if you play a lot of games, to me a $10 credit on xbox live is like getting it for $49.99...and you cant beat that on a pre-order...


Ugh, another 2-3 weeks, cant wait.....

can't wait for this game. already preordered. I really liked the first one except for the fact that it had artificial barriers. this one fixes that problem.
