Forza Horizon 2 – Storm Island Expansion [DLC]

What is it? An off-road expansion for Forza Horizon 2 that adds an additional island prone to some heavy weather as well as some new off-road vehicles and modes to play around with.

Forza Horizon 2 is already one of the best racing/driving games available for new-gen consoles, with our own review giving it over 4 stars . Focusing on off-road vehicles, Storm Island aims to add even more content to the already huge title with the addition of a new separate island location, new weather, new events, five new cars (some insane ones), new rally parts/upgrades that can be fitted to all cars, new special missions and 90 new events in total, including the new event types: Rampage, Brawl, Extreme Cross Country, Cross Country Circuit and Gauntlet.

Storm Island really does inject new life into Horizon 2 and creates an off-road monster of its own. Whether you’re barreling along in Raid vehicles in a tropical storm that affords almost no visibility, killing it in historical Group B rally monsters or tearing up the countryside in a full-blow rally-spec 70’s Muscle Car, you’ll have a big smile on your face.

It’s just a magical amount of dirty fun, although we would have preferred it a little cheaper than its $20 price tag and it would have been great to have a few more new cars and some of the new modes added to the original map.

That said, Storm Island may still be one of the best off-road racing game experiences we’ve played in recent years.

    I really like this DLC. It makes a Racing game into a flying cars game with all the huge jumps you get. Just take the Storm Island Finale as an example. Really need to go back and finish off all the championships and Gauntlets.

      Flying cars you say? LOL, look what I took:

        yeah that is about right. They can almost call this the Back to the Future DLC.
