    With the upcoming release of the 7th instalment of the Fast and Furious series Turn 10, MS studios and Universal have decided to collaborate and release this free at launch until April 10th 2015 when it will become £7.99/$9.99.

    Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious is a standalone title that is completely separate from Forza Horizon 2 and has its own achievement list. As it is part of Forza Horizon 2 it borrows the Nice area of the stunning Horizon world and uses all of Horizon 2's graphics, game engine, events etc. If you want to know all about Horizon 2 I suggest you check out the reviews here.

    The story of Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious
    Fast and Furious begins like Horizon 2 with you driving a Lamborghini Hurican to a location, only this time you'll be driving to Dom's 1970 Charger which is the first of 10 cars that you'll be driving in the game. Once in the Charger Tej will explain that he needs 10 cars from around Nice and its your job to get them.

    You will use each of the cars you acquire to win the others, playing in various street races, showcase events, head to head races and the odd circuit races. Once you've acquired all 10 cars Tej will explain to you that he has a pilot coming to pick the cars up in his cargo plane, only he cannot land for long so you will be racing them to the finish line on the Airport's runway, which is much like the end of the last Fast and Furious film.

    Length
    As the game is a sectioned off sample of the Horizon world the game is much shorter to complete only lasting around 3hours to complete every event and get all achievements, though there is still 20 reward boards, 6 bucket list events to complete and roads to discover still.

    Achievements
    There are 25 achievements in the game which for the most part will all be unlocked whilst playing through the story as 13 of them are story achievements whilst the other 12 are for performing a number of various simple skills that anyone is capable of doing.
    I forgot to mention all the references made in the achievement names, some of the most iconic lines laugh

    The cars
    There are 10 cars in the game (11 if you unlock the Hurican through the Forza Hub app) that are all in the latest Fast and Furious movie:
    • Dom's notorious 1970 Dodge Charger
    • 1998 Toyota Supra (Not the lovely orange one from the first movie unfortunately)
    • Plymouth Roadrunner (The barn find of the game)
    • Jeep Wrangler (Believe this one is Hobb's)
    • Brian's Nissan GT-R
    • Plymouth Cuda
    • 2015 Dodge Charger
    • McLaren MP1
    • 2015 Dodge Challenger
    • Bugatti Veyron
    • Maserati Ghibli

    Being a big fan I was excited to drive Dom's Charger but its quite the handful, I did spend most of my time in the fast cars once I had them so I could travel around the map quicker. Infact I never drove the Ghibli or the Roadrunner during the story.

    Whilst its nice that they made this I was hoping that it would be all the iconic cars from the Fast and Furious world but im still happy with what we got.

    Final verdict
    Overall I give the game 5 stars as the game is almost flawless just like Horizon 2 was, whilst it is quick and very clearly a massive promotion for the movie and Horizon 2 its great that they've given it to us for free. I enjoyed the 3 hours I spent playing the game (and the 3 I spent on the 360 version) and enjoyed playing about in the cars.

    rocking23nfI really like this game, and free. im sure anyone who buys the latest forza every 6 months will not like it, but for me, I play a racing game every 5 years, and I thought this was awesome.

    thomaskoratIt's about 4.75 to 5.5 hours long, not 3 hours.

    ThePixellistI'm just so disappointed with the ugly-ass RS200 you get in FH2 for smashing all the reward boards of this "game"…
    Shouldn't it be a Fast & Furious related car ?

    ScottybonzoJust consider it as a car pack plus additional races for FH2.

    I liked it and completed it on xb1 (except for the 50k score)

    @thomaskorat I did it in 4hrs+ but that included doing all bucket lists, reward boards and even driving ALL roads. You don't need to do these for the achievements so you can 1000gs this game in 2-3hrs no problem
    I'll do the 360 version later smile

    SpilnerI didn't say it took 3 hours but that I spent 3 hours playing at the time.

    SpilnerNo, standalone.

    MrProcastinatePretty much ok. Free games - I love them and especially when I get 1000GS that easy.
    Took less than 3 hours so it was worth it!

    SENTIENT R0B0TFantastic. Just bought the F&F car pack believing it was this. This NEEDS to be clearer, certainly on this site and beyond!

    Spilner...How can it be any clearer than it being its own game over a car pack...
