The Forza Horizon series has been a road trip adventure that us racing fans have been looking forward to with increasing interest. The first Forza Horizon started back in 2012 and served as a nice, arcade like adventure away from the serious Forza Motorsport series. What made Horizon so good was that as the main series followed a realism path, Horizon embraced the fun and crazy side and really brought the road trip and festival feeling to life.
Now, you could be thinking either; “I’ve never heard of this Forza Horizon series before, where should I start?”, or “I’ve played these games, they’re great but what is the best?”, both of these questions are going to be answered here on XNVR. Buckle in, put your sunglasses on as we take a drive down the coast towards memory lane.
We have reached the summit, the 1st place, the winner. It was always going to be FH2, let’s not lie. The perfect road trip adventure just simply found a way to get better and better the more you played it.
The story about Forza Horizon 2 does fade away to the side and instead turns into road tripping fun. The game is set in central Europe and you are tasked with doing different races in different tournaments until it is time to up and move onto the next location. Now, that doesn’t sound too interesting on paper, but the road trip sections where you’re driving around in a massive group in your supercar, overtaking lower class cars while being overtaken by hypercars is such an amazing and breathtaking addition to the game. I remember being blown away by the road trip feeling when I was younger, and it set the bar for the racing adventure, and it’s still yet to be beat.
FH2 had a large amount of cars and classes to work through, and each class had different tournaments to work through, so even when the main story was done, there was still so much more racing to be had.
