'Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious' may not be as robust and content-filled as the game it borrows from and expands upon, but it's one hell of a package at no cost whatsoever. Even when it hits $9.99, it'll still be well-worth picking up, because it's just that good of a game.
Judged as a stand-alone budget title, Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious is surprisingly robust and worth playing. As a piece of Forza Horizon 2 DLC, it's a harder call. If you download the game before April 10 (while it is available for free), it's a no-brainer. Don't hesitate; just get it and enjoy. Once the price bumps back up to $10, the decision comes down to your ownership of Forza Horizon 2 and the "Furious 7" Car Pack. If you already own the car pack, buying this is going to feel like double-dipping on the content.
S: That's it. This is fun because Forza Horizon is fun and it is nice that it's free (until April 10), glorified demo that it is, but it makes me yearn for an actual Fast & Furious game with a "Press F to drink a Corona" prompt and a Han lives retcon.
Microsoft and Universal Pictures teamed up for a special version of Forza Horizon 2 set in the Fast & Furious world. The result is a racing game that feels more like a demo than a legitimate expansion pack.
It seems churlish to visit a barrage of negativity on a free game, but one sincerely hopes that Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious isn't the harbinger of a new trend in the games industry.
