    A week ago, I picked up a Forza 6 XBOX One bundle, and have been wondering if I should add Horizon 2 to my collection. Is the online still active? Is DLC still ongoing?

    To answer your questions, though, DLC has finished but online is still active.

    It's a fantastic counterpart to the Motorsport series. If you drive sensibly in free roam and set yourself a limit that mimics the real world fear factor, then it's a really pleasant driving game. Career races are somewhat overegged, but they're really good fun.

    FH2 is an absolute MUST imo. Phenomenal off road, open world free roaming game. Plus it has dynamic night day and weather. :D

    Absolutely get it; THE best open road racing game you could own this generation.

    Uh... you may have gotten it already...

    If yes, how do you like it? :D

    Haven't gotten it yet sadly. The game's doing a great job of retaining it's value, and I'm short on cash this week. :(

    Start saving then you'll get it eventually. I remember how I had saved just to get the X1 + FM5 and H2. Man.. what a feeling, as I undid the packaging. :D

    It still worth getting it until Forza Horizon 3 is released next year.

    As some of you have probably seen, I got Horizon 2, and also renewed my Live for a year. If anyone's wanting to play around on multiplayer, I'll be happy to join in.

    We don't know how good or bad FH3 will be. So it is sill worth getting FH2 regardless of FH3 coming out next year 2016. Plus it wont be out likely until about this time next year. About 11 or 12 months away.

    Oh nice congrats!! I am sure you are loving it. :)

    I'm not afraid to say that Horizon 2 is nearly my favorite racing game EVER. :D

    Doesn't Horizon get released somewhere in mid-summer.. just a few months before the FM release months (not year), i.e. Sept/Oct?

    Anyway, it has to be good. PG have been making consistent improvements to their franchise.

    Knew you would love it. :D It truly is loaded with "fun".

    Nope.

    FH3 will most likely release sometime around October 2016. So as I said, there are easily at least 11-12 months before FH3 arrives. ;)

    Yes.

    Just got it and it's so freaking fun and beautiful.

    I would say: GET IT NOW.

    Wow... long time no see, Yeah Horizon 2 is really top notch, the game just feels much bigger than the first game, Playground Games did a really good job with it.

    Hey Dylan, it's been quite a while. I totally agree with you on Horizon 2 being a much better game. :tup:

    I didn't realise you had an XBOX One dude. Feel free to add me if you want (A 1998 Jeep XJ).

    Yes, yes, and yes.

    Personally I find it to be a bit more addictive than the Motorsport series. Play at your own risk.

    Harty harh harh mate! Let's not forget FM5 brought REALLY good sound detail to the franchise... though the exhaust sputter, pops and crackles are better captured in 6 for sure.

    Has this game been on sale recently or is it likely it will be soon? I want to buy the Ultimate Edition but I don't agree with price tag after having recently purchased the Ultimate Edition of FM6.

    Horizon 2 should be available at a fairly economical price by now. You sayin' it's still going for $60??

    The Ultimate Edition currently asks for more than $90 in my country.

    Well, yeah.. for The Ultimate I imagine you'd be dishing out quite a bit of moolah.

    I've always bought the standard editions all along. Does just fine.

    Personally, I love Horizion 2, but if you have FM6 already, it might be hard to justify the price. I'd wait until it's cheaper.
