Developers: Playground Games, Turn 10 Studios 

Publisher: Microsoft Studios

Xbox One Release Date: September 30, 2014

Have you ever driven down a long, lonesome country road and think to yourself, “I would certainly love to take this old chestnut out for a spin through those local plains over there.” Well, with Forza Horizon 2, not only do you have a greater freedom for high-speed travel, but you can take in all the fun in the sun (or shade) in a super-fast racing car.

Like the previous iteration, the Horizon Festival in Europe acts as your main hub for hundreds of events throughout the continent. Specific cars are offered for specific races, and each will have their strengths and weaknesses in urban and rural environments. You can also challenge varying difficulties of opposing drivatars if you’re up for some hard-earned cash and XP. Depending on the style that you bring to races, you can set your racing standard like an RPG skill tree. The jump from single player to multiplayer, with seamless ease, makes the open world environment come alive with enigmatic energy.

In Forza Horizon 2, you are essentially at the mercy of your skills. The car, the scenery, the gorgeous views and the gameplay are all up for you to explore.
