Pure Horizon

I was never into cars. Well not until the first Forza Horizon. It was great new entry in the racing genre back in 2012. I don’t think I can even count how many hours I spent driving across Colorado – At that moment in time I thought it couldn’t get better than this, but it did. Forza Horizon 2 is an evolution of its predecessor, almost unbelievable in scope and ambition. Its one of those games that embraces escapism and does it so effortlessly. Driving around the European countryside feels like driving around European countryside – It’s life assuring, and its just as you’d imagined it would be! The sun dancing on the hood of your car, the sudden turn of the weather, the rolling landscape with its winding roads, tearing through vineyards and the fields – its all you, your car, and the freedom of the open world and you will want to absorb every awe-inspiring second of it! Much of Horizon’s charm comes from its soundtrack. Its that synergy between music and driving that makes it so special. Countless of times you’ll find the music guiding you, and you’ll drive with sound. And that’s wrong and dangerous – you know that but you’ll still want to do it. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to truly express my love for it, mostly because I’m not that good of a writer – but meet me in the real world and you’ll understand. Forizon Horizon 2 is pure, gorgeous; and it’s strangely emotive. It’s an homage to video games – only when you get your hands on it you truly appreciate how far video games have come. If there is one game you play this fall, make it Forza Horizon 2.
