    Even after FM6 came out, I find I'm still playing FH2 more.

    I think I'll be revisiting H2 soon as FM6 does not seem to be retaining my attention and interest like FM5 did.

    I always find myself having more fun in Horizon 2 than I do with Motorsport 6. The only catch is that I only have the free DLC packs so what I have in FH2 is much smaller compared to what's on offer in FM6 (and I don't feel like paying more for the same cars).

    Oh well, the third instalment to the Horizon series should make its debut next year with a more up-to-date car list, can't wait for that! :)

    I'm glad you're enjoying this masterpiece of a racing game. Horizon 2 is by far the best racing game of this console generation, it's fun and challenging, yet relaxing when you want to (cruising through the seaside with the Jag F-Type is just oooohhhh...). Too bad I can't play it since my save data will not sync with the Xbox cloud; as a testament to this game's greatness, I've poured over a hundred hours on it! I really do wonder which cards Playground and Turn 10 will play to make Horizon 3 even better.

    Just remember to get all the DLCs available (the Car Pass, VIP, Storm Island and the Porsche expansion, and the three car DLCs which aren't included in the Car Pass), because they're well worth the price. ;)

    Each release of Horizon makes me salivate for the next release. Not because I'm disappointed in this release. On the contrary, I'm so impressed with the current release that I can't even imagine how much better the next release is going to be.

    A little trick for you when you get to photography. Clicking the right button will allow you to move the watermark. Being able to move it really helps with the composition, and if you take two identical photos with the watermark in different places, it makes it easy to edit it out completely.

    Horizon 2 is a ridiculously addictive game, in some ways (and at times) more so than the FM games. There are just too many things to do to make you want to put the controller down. :D

    I just wish there were a way to make it run at 60 fps.. wishful thinking, I know.

    I'd assume the second F&F pack, that sounds about right.

    We never know what the updates are about. They are no release notes on the official forums.. ever! I myself have gotten all updates to date... but interestingly, the rev-hanging bug is still there. And the cockpit view... I don't bother using them at all.

    I'm thinking of getting Forza horizon 2 if I get some gift cards for Xmas. I've played the first one so I know what it's all about. Would my best value be getting the ultimate anniversary edition with all the monthly car packs and VIP for 89 US dollars? I know I would still have to get the Porsche pack and storm island, and it doesn't include the fast and furious and maybe some other car packs I'm missing. Or should I just buy the normal game and get storm island and the Porsche pack? I was just trying to find what the best value was...I see storm island is on a discount in the Xbox marketplace right now for 7 dollars.

    Thank you for mentioning that, €5 for Storm Island doesn't sound too bad!

    No problem. If you click on the "countdown" sales on Xbox home page, you can click on Forza sales, and they have storm island and playground select car pack for 67% off. Fast and furious horizon 2 version 40% off. You can bundle Forza 6 and horizon 2 digital copies for 25% off. I'm just trying to decide if the horizon 2 ultimate edition is the best value. Apparently you get up to 10% more off those discounts of you have gold.

    I don't think there's any discount on that, it's still the $9.99 in the store.

    Is there something I should be doing to get horizon 2 stats to show up on the Forza game hub? It shows I'm playing the game in the "nearest achievement" category, but that's the only place. On my Forza history it says 0/3000 points and I should have a bunch of points, I've already beat the main story and I'm on to storm island. I've been playing for a week now. According to another thread, people had problems last July with it, but there was a patch that fixed it. I was just curious on how long it takes to show up.
