Forza Horizon 2 is a great looking game. The southern European setting is gorgeous and provides a variety of roads and settings to race on. The presentation is slick all the way through, and the six radio stations ensure you'll always have something to listen to (even if they aren't quite as stellar as those in the first Horizon, which I still listen to regularly).
I think what works against the game more than anything is a simple matter of time. Alien is a sparse movie, carefully crafted to show us as little of the alien as possible, both to hide the alien costume and as a way to keep us in suspense. By the end of the game, you've spent more time looking at the alien than every character in the movies (I'm including Aliens 3, Resurrection, and Prometheus here) combined and somehow come away intact.
Disney Fantasia is a fun, family-friendly way to interact with and enjoy music. It's a great use of the Xbox One's Kinect sensor as well, one that shows how much fun the sensor can be to use and how much we're missing out on as it fades away. This is likely the Kinect's last big new title – aside from some possible Just Dance and Dance Central updates – but it's a very good one. If you're craving a way to use your Kinect or get your Harmonix fix, this is the way to do it.
It's still Call of Duty, but it's a fresh take on the formula and shows that Sledgehammer was a good choice to bring into the yearly rotation of Activision's biggest shooter. I'll be looking forward to seeing what they have to offer next time around.
Unity isn't a bad game. If you want to tour Paris, if you want to encounter some of the era's historical figures, that part of Assassin's Creed is intact and, in many ways, better than ever. There are some fun missions to enjoy, as well. But if a consistent, bug-free experience is even slightly your thing, wait on this at the very least. Give Ubisoft a few months to get it out of beta or maybe just wait for next year when the team has a better handle on the engine and the new consoles.
