The review embargo for Forza Horizon 2 has lifted, and it looks like the gaming media is welcoming Microsoft’s sequel to their 2012 hit arcade sim racer with open arms. Forza Horizon 2 appears to be doing extremely well, with most reviews awarding it high scores, and praising the game’s racing mechanics, graphics, and open world.
Unlike Forza Motorsport 5, which launched with the Xbox One last year, Forza Horizon 2 does not include microtransactions, at least for now. In addition, there is a demo available, so you can play the game and check it out for yourself. What I am trying to say is, if the review scores aren’t enough to sell you on the game, then really, your own experience should be.
The full review round-up includes:
Currently the game also has a Metascore of 86, making it (so far) the highest rated original game across the PS4 and Xbox One of the year.
