Forza Horizon 2 Presents: Fast and Furious Review
Forza Motorsport, Xbox’s racing brand. Fast And The Furious, the worlds most notable racing movie series. What do you get when you combine them together? One heck of an experience. Using the licensed cars from the current movie, Furious 7, Forza Horizon 2 Presents: Fast And Furious is a great showcase of some the worlds best and fastest cars. Using the same formula as Forza Horizon 2, Fast And Furious plays out a lot like the movies, except in free roam fashion.
The game starts off with a narration from Chris “Ludacris” Bridges’, a character from the movie explaining the ultimate goal being a wide collection of the worlds best cars. He goes on to mention he knows someone who can gather them for him. That person being you, an up and comer street racer. This standalone game uses everything that made Forza Horizon 2 great. From the great visuals, to the challenging side missions. Ranging from Speed Traps, to Street races, you’ll be driving very fast and very furious throughout the streets of Europe. You’ll even be speeding down a run way take off as a cargo plane fly’s over you in grand dramatic movie fashion.
The sounds are there as well within the cars and atmosphere. Each car sounds unique and life-like as well as when crashing into things, most sounds are quite realistic.
The main, and only real problems, I had with this standalone download were that every now and than, when I would unlock an achievement and go to check it, the frame rate would drop or stutter for a second, until the game paused and opened the achievement. Besides that technical hiccup, and a few problems controlling certain cars, I can safely recommend this one.
Turn10 Studios have done it yet again with this new standalone DLC, for yet another fantastic experience. It is currently free until April 10th, then which it goes up for $9.99. Free or paid, it’s a piece of content that needs to be checked out. Whether you’re a Forza fan or a Fast and Furious fan, this one can’t be missed.
