    Horizon 4 is seldom fun anyway. This is a shot in the arm it needed.

    I'm sure some people will enjoy this but judging by the comments on social media it likely hasn't been as well received as they had hoped....

    But maybe that's just the bias of negative reactions appearing before positive ones

    Anyone complaining is allergic to fun, it seems

    Don’t get all the negativity. It looks fun as hell, which is exactly what a Horizon expansion should be.

    I have to say the whole event was a complete waste of time. Propably the worst Xbox briefing in years. Way too much CGI trailers and no real gameplay. Forza Lego looks like its made for kids. So far, i dont like it.

    Not at all, Hot Wheels was awesome fun and I would love a Lego racing game on it's own, but having it in Horizon? It just doesn't feel right and I feel their time would have been better spent on something else.

    I might be in the 0.001% that thinks this looks fun.

    Goodness, I don’t think the Forza franchise could have gone further down the drain. What a waste of resources.

    Doesn’t matter that I’m still driving the same S15 model I was in FM2, or the fact that my R32 sounds like an N/A Supra, cause hey!!! I can drive a LEGO McLaren Senna!

    I wasn’t expecting much from this expansion, but wow, I’m in disbelief.

    Two things:

    1: Is it really any different then what was present in the Hot Wheels expansion, with the loop-the-loops and boost pads?
    2: What is this 'something else' PG should have spent time on for the second expansion? Because I have a very good feeling that if they came out with yet another thing like Fortune Island, where the general racing is still the same as the base game, people would have been raking them over the coals anyway.

    Car-related games are supposed to be GRIMSERIOUS.

    I liked the Hot Wheels expansion in FH3. This is a step too far for me.

    How low are the chances that we will be able to built our own LEGO cars and tracks with this addon? :p

    I really get the sense that some just want sim racing everything instead of the ability to cut loose every once in a while.

    But is it fun though? We'll have to see what's it's like to play, but compared to the Hotwheels with loop to loops, giant jumps and such, from the little shown in the trailer it's looks like they just reskinned/replaced buildings, trees and spectators with Lego stuff?

    Compared to the Hotwheels trailer with the loops, spins, spirals, jumps and turbos etc.

    It's definitely silly, but that doesn't mean it will be fun.

    That and the weirdness with the Lego characters... Like the Hotwheels at least sorta looked real. Like some mad billionaire with a Hotwheels fetish went to town. But... It's just strange. Love to see how they (the festival hosts) react to the island of living Lego people.

    Maybe we should wait and see what the expansion actually involves before saying “it’s not right” or “a step too far”

    I yearn for the day a new Lego Racers comes out. So much potential.

    I like the real-life LEGO Speed Champions line so I'm game for this. Hot Wheels wasn't bad.

    If I wanted to drive in something blocky looking I'd take an Abarth 131 or a Nissan 240RS. Sadly, this lot are too busy playing with Lego to fill my quota for anything like a classic rally game.

    Oh, of course it's fine to cut loose every once in a while. It's just I'd rather do it with something else.

    As a standalone affair this would work a treat. Mixed in with the rest of FH4, though? That's just T10's commercial appetite kicking in, really.

    ultimately, that's what I think should be the take away. At least, y'know, wait for the contents of the expansion to come out in a press release before writing off as the death of Forza or whatever?

    Or continue having hissyfits about how the game isn't sim enough or whatever.

    And Hot Wheels wasn't the same thing? Or the Fast and Furious expansion in FH2?

    Come on people.

    I'm really surprised how strong the hate seems to be...seriously surprised. It's a fun idea, what did people really expect to follow hot wheels? The second expansion is never going to be a real world grounded setting, I would be interested to see here what people expected, vs what they actually wanted.

    Yes, it was. And they didn't satisfy me either. Was wholly nonplussed about Hot Wheels and the F&F cars are just more cars for me to not drive in other FM games.

    I mean, I don't care about this either way, I can always just not spend my money on it... It's not wrong, just not I want.

    I think what people expected was:
    Lego Technik i.e. the more complex Lego models
    Building Lego cars in game etc

    What people wanted:
    Something actually grounded in car culture, i.e a touge or highway street racing focused expansion

    I thought this was leaked ages ago.
