In today’s official “bummer” news it was announced that Project CARS from Slightly Mad Studios has been delayed until March 2015. Originally the game was to be released for PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4 (PS4), and Wii U next month in time for the Holiday season. However, the Wii U version was always meant to be released in 2015. Now all the other versions will join it. I have to say this is pretty disappointing, especially since I was really looking forward to this game after playing it at E3 this year.
Disappointment aside there is a really puzzling aspect to this story and that is the reason given for the delay. Remember how I mentioned that Project CARS was going to originally release next month in time for the holiday shopping season? Well it turns out that is exactly why they decided to delay it. Confused? Allow me to explain. It seems that if Slightly Mad Studios and Bandai Namco the official publisher and distributor of Project CARS are worried that with so many other games coming out during the holiday season that Project CARS will get lost in the crowd.
By pushing the release to March they believe they are giving Project CARS “the greatest chance for “success and visibility”. Normally, I would agree with this strategy however this time I do not and I will tell you why…
Firstly, I could understand being hesitant to go up against some of the big holiday releases but given the quality, finish, and overall positive impressions of the game so far I would reckon that this game would do just fine against any other triple A video game release this year.
Second, under normal circumstances the holiday season is a tough time to release a new IP but for Project CARS this would actually be the BEST time. Gamers who are on the look out for a racing game for Christmas this year have very slim pickings. To date there are only 3 major racing games out for “next gen” consoles: Forza Motorsport 5, Forza Horizon 2, and DRIVECLUB.
Mostly everyone who wants Forza Motorsport 5 has it already since its a launch title, Forza Horizon 2 is a great game and will likely pick up more steam over the holidays but its still an Xbox One exclusive so not everyone in the next gen console audience can get it and this brings us to my third reason why this delay comes at a bad time.
DRIVECLUB is the only major racing game available on Playstation 4 right now and its reviews are mediocre at best. Many outlets find DRIVECLUB to be an average racing game that is only made better by its online components. The problem with that is currently most if not all of DRIVECLUB’s online components are not working due to major server issues and as of now it is unclear when those issues will be fixed.
This leaves PS4-owning racing game fans with virtually nothing to choose from as its likely many of them would not want to buy a broken game. If Project CARS went ahead as scheduled the PS4 crowd would FLOCK to it in droves! Perhaps the sales on Xbox One would not be quite as strong since it would be going up against Forza Horizon 2 but Horizon 2 is an open world game where as Project CARS is closer to a sim like Forza Motorsport 5 but includes a few things that Forza 5 lacks such as dynamic weather and possibly a larger track selection.
To me this seems like a great opportunity missed for Project CARS but hopefully this time will be used to make the game even better than it was when I played it. I’ll keep you posted!

Its been a long time coming, but today everyone can finally get their hands on Forza Horizon 2! First announced a short while before E3 this year, Forza fans have been waiting to sink their teeth into a brand new open world and full of bright shiny tasty cars! So, is it everything we hoped it would be? Is it worth the wait? More importantly, is it worth $60? Here is my take…
DISCLAIMER: Microsoft provided an early full copy of Forza Horizon 2 as well as a loaner Xbox One console for the purposes of this review. Since I needed a console to play the game I have had significantly less time with the game than most of the other outlets who reviewed the game. This is why I am doing a written review rather than my typical video review. This review will also be a bit leaner since I did not have as much time with the game. That being said, lets dive in!
What is Forza Horizon 2?
Just in case you haven’t been paying attention to this website or various others for the last 6 months or so let me fill you in on what Forza Horizon is all about. “Horizon” is a virtual music and automotive festival that usually takes place in a sprawling, scenic local, and is essentially a free-for-all to any gear head to drive their dream car in an open world in anyway they see fit. Forza Horizon 2 greatly expands on what the first Horizon game did, specifically by moving the location from Utah to southern Europe with locations like Nice, and Sisteron. All in all the area in which players can explore in Forza Horizon 2 is double what it was in the first Horizon game.
How does it look?
As stated in the disclaimer I played the Xbox One version of Forza Horizon 2 and like its cousin Forza Motorsport 5, Horizon 2 seems to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s power. The visuals are stunning. The cars look very realistic and sharp inside and out. I was half expecting the visual quality to be lower than that of Forza 5 but the standards were still set the same. In some ways Forza Horizon 2 actually looks better than Forza 5 but more on that later. Anyway, its more than just the cars that look good the environments are amazing. Whenever I plow through a vineyard in first person view its almost like I can smell the soil and the grapes being stirred up and smashed by the car. To make things even better visually Forza Horizon 2 has dynamic weather. This is the first and only Forza game so far with weather effects and it looks awesome! The way the water beads on the car’s paint surface and windshield looks incredible. The weather also realistically affects how the environments look as well. Reflections of the car and its surroundings can be seen on wet asphalt. Random puddles form, differences in the terrain create pools of standing water. Once the rain stops the moisture doesn’t just magically disappear, it actually takes a while to dry off! Because of the extra visual detail that the weather adds it actually makes the game look even better than Forza Motorsport 5 in a way. For their first time doing weather the team really knocked it out of the park!
How do the cars drive?
When the first Forza Horizon game came out many were skeptical as to how the car physics would play out. At first glance Forza Horizon seems very much like an “arcade” style racer, which typically means very floaty loose physics meant more for forgiveness than accuracy. The first Horizon game eased fears by using the same physics system used in Forza Motorsport. Horizon 2 follows the tradition by keeping its physics firmly based on the simulator side although things are tweaked just a little bit to make things a little more accessible for less experienced players. However, just like in Forza Motorsport assists can be turned off for increased realism in handling (as well as difficulty). Additionally tuning has been expanded so that parameters can be more finely adjusted that previously allowed in the first Horizon game. The only thing that would have made this better is if they allowed for a tune to be exported from Forza Motorsport 5 to Horizon 2. Maybe in the next version? Also, as I mentioned earlier the new weather system adds a whole new layer to the game’s physics. When it starts the pour everything changes and players will have to take real care to make sure they stay in control. This isn’t to say that as soon as it rains handling goes out the window but it does get more difficult. Combine that with the fact that players will never know when the rain will come and you have the makings of challenging gameplay.
How many cars are there?
I wont spend too much time here since this info is pretty easy to find but there are over 210 cars available at launch with more coming via DLC in the future. As far as the curation of the cars available trust me when I tell you all your bases are covered. There are plenty of exotics, supercars, sports cars, classics, and cult classics to choose from. Anyone will be hard pressed to find a car that should be in the roster but isn’t. Its all there!
How much is there to do?
I am just going to flat out say it now. It will be a very long time before any player does all there is to do “officially” in Forza Horizon 2. There are hundreds of roads and over 700 (yes 700!) events to do. Depending on how casually one games they may not even finish it all before the next Horizon game comes out. The possibilities are expanded even further when considering other events such as “bucket lists” (one-off events that encourage major hoonage), the return of “barn finds”, and the fact that you can challenge just about any car on the road to an impromptu street race. That last part is even more special in Horizon 2 since this time around players deal with “drivatars” just like in Forza Motorsport 5. Each “AI” car is literally based off the “driving personality” of another real player. This adds a whole new dimension to not just every random street race but all the races in the game because you are always racing against drivatars.
The seamless multiplayer mode adds even more to do with open world roaming lobbies in which players can explore the world as a group and decide what they want to do and literally just do it. The experience is much smoother, easier, and more fun. There really is no place where single player ends and multiplayer begins, and that’s a good thing. Everything about the events and other experiences of this game are really meant to pull players in. Some people may even find themselves having to reserve time to go back to Forza Motorsport 5 because they will be so involved in Horizon 2.
What’s not to like?
No game is perfect and Forza Horizon 2 is no exception. While there is a lot to love about this game there are some things I didn’t quite like. The first is how the driveatars look. Now that might seem like an odd statement considering drivatars use the same cars that everyone else uses but there is one key difference. For some reason driveatars are given graphics schemes and those schemes tend to be on the tacky side. I know this is kind of a knit pick but its just weird to see a Lamborghini Aventador with a 1992 Hot Import Nights-style checkered flag theme. In Forza Motorsport 5 this treatment can be turned off but as far as I can tell, that option isn’t available in Forza Horizon 2.
Another thing that took some points off is the music. Now, I am not saying the music is bad. In fact, music is a big part of what makes the “Horizon” series what it is. Just like in the first Horizon game there are radio stations with different genres of music that the player can choose on the fly. The choices of music are even greater now with over 150 stations to choose from. The problem is unlike the first Horizon game in which all the stations are available at the start, in Forza Horizon 2 only three are available and more stations are unlocked as you progress in the game. This lead to me getting tired of the music real fast in the early hours of playing and I found myself just keeping the radio off for the most part until I unlocked more stations.
Back when Forza Horizon 2 was first announced many of the hardcore fans had a lot of specific and technical questions like “how many cars will there be?”, “how much bigger is the open world?”, “can we turn on the headlights and windshield wipers?”. I will admit that I had some of those questions myself as I waited for this game to arrive. Yet, I can honestly say that within the first 10 minutes of playing the game none of that stuff matters anymore. All that mattered to me was “OMG I am driving a Ferrari through a random field plowing through giant hay bales on a southern European country side and its awesome!” I think in the end it was that feeling that Playground Games was really going for when they began to work on Forza Horizon 2. They really did create this virtual theme park of automotive pleasures with seemingly limitless possibilities for having obnoxious fun. That, my friends is well worth 60 bucks. I would easily give this game a 9.5 out of 10 and recommend you go out and buy it immediately if you haven’t done so already!

Forza horizon 2 releases in just two weeks but starting today you can try it out for yourself by downloading the demo on Xbox Live. To further entice potential Forza addicts Turn 10 studios has also announced the details of Forza Horizon VIP membership. If that weren’t enough they also announced 8 free DLC cars that will be available at launch! If they actually offer a kitchen sink I think I might be sold… Anyway, lets get into the details of the goodies shall we?
First off is the 8 free DLC cars that will be available at launch. Seriously, Forza has been giving away so many cars its like they’re Oprah (I’ve waited a long time to use that joke so make with the lol’s!). Anyway here is the list of cars that players can get their hands on right away: 2003 Ford Focus RS, 1997 Land Rover Defender 90, 1993 Clio Williams, 2015 Ford Mustang GT, 1987 Buick Regal GNX, 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV, 1968 Abarth 595 esseesse, 1956 Ford F-100. A pretty eclectic mix if you ask me. You have a hot hatch in the Focus RS, Muscle in the ’15 Mustang GT, and obscure classic in the Abarth 595 esseesse (how the heck is “esseesse” pronounced?!?!). On paper the DLC sounds like a nice starting point to play in Forza Horizon 2’s open world.
Next up is the new VIP membership. Since Forza Horizon is always based around a “festival” style event they are likening VIP membership as something of a “backstage pass.” VIP membership provides access to “exclusive benefits” in Forza Horizon 2. The first of which is a 5 car DLC pack which includes the 2012 Lamborghini Urus, 2014 Tesla Model S, 1967 Ferrari 330 P4, 1949 Mercury Coupe, and the 2013 Donkervoort D8 GTO. VIP members also get “2x player in-game reward acceleration, access to exclusive multiplayer events, in-game gifts from the Forza community team, and special in-game recognition.” VIP membership will set players back $19.95. However, current Forza Motorsport 5 VIP members can buy Horizon 2 VIP membership for half off at $9.99.
If you are already firmly in the Forza Horizon 2 camp and for sure going to pick it up then you might be interested in the “Car Pass”. This basically nets players all of the future DLC (at least 31 cars according to Turn 10) over the next six months in one pre-purchase for $24.95. Purchase of the Car Pass will also include the 2010 Nobile M600 as a bonus exclusive car.
Whew, is that everything? Oh, wait! Anyone who has already decided they want to buy Forza Horizon 2 and really eager to have their copy ASAP can “pre-download” it starting today. Basically, a player would use their Xbox Live account, purchase the game as a download, download the entire game to their console, and then be given instant access to it on the release date (September 30th, 2014).
Ok, I think that covers it all. Forza Horizon 2 is really shaping up to be a pretty big release this year. If things work out I will give you my first hand account of Forza Horizon 2 in the form of a review. I will keep you all posted! In the meantime I encourage anyone curious about the game to download the demo and get a first impression! For more info hit up the Forza Horizon 2 website.
Eight Free Downloadable Cars Coming to Forza Horizon 2 at Launch
Bonus DLC Car Pack bringing 2015 Mustang GT and more to game
Forza Horizon 2 is just weeks away and, soon, Forza fans the world over will be exploring the wide-open high-speed highways and breakneck back roads of southern Europe. By now, you’re probably aware that Forza Horizon 2 will ship with more than 200 amazing cars, all built from the ground up on Xbox One. Forza has always been about bringing fans the best content, whether that’s world debut cars like Roll-Royce Wraith or track add-ons like Long Beach, Road America, and the Nürburgring.
As is the case with all Forza games, we’ll constantly be updating Forza Horizon 2 with fresh new content. Beginning on Sept. 30 to coincide with the release of Forza Horizon 2, we’ll be launching a brand new pack for the game: the Forza Horizon 2 Launch Bonus Car Pack. This car pack will feature eight cars representing the awesome variety that can be found in the Forza Horizon 2 car roster – from rough-and-tumble trucks like the 1956 Ford F-100 to the raw power represented by the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The Launch Bonus Pack will include three never-before-seen vehicles in the Forza franchise: the 2003 Ford Focus RS, the 1997 Land Rover Defender 90, and the 1993 Clio Williams. Best of all, all eight of the cars featured in the Launch Bonus Car Pack will be available to all Forza Horizon 2 players at launch for no additional cost.
Here’s the full list of cars in the Launch Bonus Car Pack:
- 2003 Ford Focus RS

As in Forza Motorsport 5, each purchased add-on car can be added to your in-game garage one time for free – without additional in-game credits.
Forza Horizon 2 VIP Membership (regular $19.99; 50 percent off or $9.99 for Forza Motorsport 5 VIP members) is like a backstage pass at the Horizon Festival, giving you access to cool content you can only get here. VIP members will receive exclusive benefits in Forza Horizon 2, including the VIP Car Pack, featuring five cars (four of which are brand new to the Forza franchise). These five cars include the 2012 Lamborghini Urus, 2014 Tesla Model S, 1967 Ferrari 330 P4, 1949 Mercury Coupe, and the 2013 Donkervoort D8 GTO. VIP membership also awards with 2x player in-game reward acceleration, access to exclusive multiplayer events, in-game gifts from the Forza community team, and special in-game recognition. Current Forza Motorsport 5 VIPs receive a $10 discount on digital purchases of Forza Horizon 2 VIP membership or any Forza Horizon 2 digital offer that includes VIP membership. (Note that this discount only applies to digital offers of Forza Horizon 2.)
The Forza Horizon 2 Car Pass ($24.99) gets you access to six monthly pack add-ons beginning in October, with each pack featuring five amazing cars. That’s six monthly car packs for the price of five! Plus, Car Pass owners will receive an exclusive bonus car for free: the 2010 Noble M600. That’s 31 cars to collect, race, and customize in Forza Horizon 2! Look for more details on the first monthly car pack for Forza Horizon 2 coming soon!

Despite how packed it seemed to me when I was there, only a small fraction of the planet’s population got to attend the E3 expo or Gamescom this year and thus far those were the only times when Forza Horizon 2 was available to play to the somewhat general public. However, that is about to change! It was announced today that a Forza Horizon 2 demo is coming next month! Yes! Finally, many more people will get to enjoy driving through a grassy field in a brand new Lamborghini Huracan! The demo will be available on Xbox Live on September 16th. Unfortunately, despite the fact that when the game releases on September 30th it will be available for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 the demo next month will only be on Xbox One. If you already have an Xbox One then you’re set! If not then well, you’ll have to wait a bit longer before you get a chance to play; OR you can find a friend who has an Xbox One and go play at their house!
Right now we don’t know what cars will be available in the demo but I would not be surprised if it was the same offering of cars offered at the E3 demo with a few added extras. If you do get to play the demo and are unsure if you want to pick up the game or if you miss out on the demo completely hopefully our review will help you come to a decision! Stay tuned!

Today, the world got a bit more insight as to just how social Forza Horizon 2 will be once its released this September (9-30-14 to be exact). Playground Games, the studio behind Forza Horizon 2 released a video for Gamescom (think of it as a European E3) which detailed some of Horizon 2’s social features and how they will be integrated into the different game modes. After watching the video it appears that Playground Games really wants to make it easy for players to connect with their friends no matter what mode they are in. It will be easy for players to find out what their friends are doing, contact their friends, and play with their friends from just about any screen in the game. The video also provides a few more details on the in-game “Car Meets” and how that will change the way players browse tunes and paint schemes. There have also been tweaks to enhance popular multiplayer modes like “King” and “Infected”.
To get a full rundown of how the social features work just watch the video below!

No matter what we do, we never really know what will happen to us tomorrow. You could have the best laid plans ever and do everything right to realize the goals of those plans and then something completely out of your control can happen at a moment’s notice and potentially turn all of those plans on its head. I use the word “potentially” because it is really up to you if you will let the hand of fate disrupt your dreams and goals. Mario Bonfante Jr is someone who did not let fate deter him from what he wanted. Mario always wanted to race and in his early years his weapon of choice was anything with two wheels. He graduated from BMX racing to Motocross and from Motocross he moved onto cycle racing where he quickly established himself as the next American Moto GP prospect. Unfortunately, Mario injured his neck while riding a bicycle and became quadriplegic as a result.
However, he did not let that stop him. Now, Mario is not the first person to overcome a disability to make it in motorsports. Military Veteran Liam Dwyer suffered a horrific injury in combat and lost part of his left leg but he over came that to become a Mazda MX-5 cup racer. There is also the famous story of Alex Zanardi who lost both legs in a Champ Car accident but came back to racing with BMW in touring cars. However, what makes Mario different is that he literally engineered his return to racing himself! I won’t spoil it for you here because you really should watch the video below to see how he did it! I will say that Forza Motorsport was involved in his return to racing in a really cool way.

Tomorrow scores of “nerds” “geeks” and the like will descend upon San Diego for 2014 Comic-Con. Over the years Comic-Con has morphed into an event that was strictly about the comics into a full-on celebration of all things pop culture. That’s why these days its not uncommon for video game studios and companies to make an appearance. This year Xbox is adding a bit of artistic flair to their Comic-Con presence with a contest in which the winners can get limited one-of-one versions of an Xbox One console themed after some of their major titles. One of which is the bright “Lamborghini Huracan Yellow” console you see above!
How do you win? Well if you happen to be in San Diego this week just visit the Xbox One lounge in the Manchester Grand Hyatt hotel and find the display which has all the limited design consoles. Take a picture of your favorite one and post it to Instagram and/or Twitter with the hashtags “#XboxOne” and “#XboxSweeps” and you will be officially entered. Microsoft will pick from those entrants and someone will win the console they took a picture of!
Not only is this cool, but its one more reason why I am super bummed that I can’t make it out to Comic-Con! Good luck to those who enter!

One of the most commonly asked questions when Forza Horizon 2 was announced, and then debuted at E3 2014 was “how many cars will there be?” Despite my best efforts I was unable to get an exact number out of Ralph Fulton, the game director. However, it looks like today the team at Playground Games and Turn 10 are ready to spill the beans! Well, most of them anyway. They have officially released a list of the first 100 cars that will be in Forza Horizon 2, some of which are completely new to a Horizon game as you will see below. If you look closely at the “poster” above (click on the thumbnail of it below for an HD sized version) you can see that there is room for at least another 85 cars or so.

The Forza 5 DLC just keeps on chugging along with a brand new DLC pack for this month. Their newest offering, curated by Hot Wheels brings a slew of classics and a few modern cars to Forza Motorsport 5. As seen above, owners of the DLC will get to drive the fabled Audi Auto Union (one of the rarest collector cars on the planet) as well as the gundam-esque Lamborghini Veneno! There are also plenty of other gems included in the DLC but I will let you see it all for yourself by watching the video below! By the way the Hot Wheels car pack DLC is available now!
….pst…hey…did you see it? ……A-Team van!!!

A few days ago E3 2014 kicked off in downtown LA With Xbox’s official press conference. At the event Forza Horizon 2 got its grand debut in front of a ground of thousands at the event and millions more watching online. However, once the cool intro, pretty lights, and theatrical trailer was over there still were not many details revealed other than its release date: September 30th 2014. Luckly, I was invited to a much smaller event right after the Xbox press conference to get some hands-on time with Forza Horizon 2. I also had the chance to interview Ralph Fulton, director of Playground Games, the studio behind both Forza Horizon games. During my time with Ralph I asked him some pressing questions.
Although these questions weren’t from me but questions we selected from the official Forza Motorsport forums! How did Ralph handle the tough questions from the hardest of the hardcore fans? Like a ninja back flipping in the shadows! Check out the video below to see what I mean. There is also a video of my impression of Forza Horizon 2 after playing AND a short interview with Dan Greenawalt on the new Nurburgring Forza Motorsport 5 DLC. You can also click on any of the thumbnails in this post to get enlarged screen shots from Forza Horizon 2!
