If you missed this week’s episode of the TopSpeed Podcast , you might not be aware that I am currently reviewing the new Forza Horizon 2 game. I am not allowed to tell you much about it now, but if you want to get an idea of what the game is about, you can take a look at this video. This is the opening cutscene that takes place as soon as you turn the game on for the first time.
This video sets up the whole premise of the game. Forza isn’t a game about racing; it’s a game about the culture of the car. It celebrates the fun, the excitement, the friendship and the freedom that all comes with owning a car. It looks and feels a lot like my experience in the Gumball 3000 .
The video is a live-action piece, so don’t get too excited about how realistic it looks at first. I think the video is incredibly well-done and sets an excellent tone for the game as a whole. If you are interested in the game, you can buy it starting September 30th for both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 . If you want a bit more information about the game, my review will go live Thursday September 25th.
