[NOTE TO MODERATORS: THIS IS NOT A WISH-LIST, COMPLAINT-LIST OR ANYTHING ELSE LIKE THAT. JUST SOMETHING TO HAVE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT HORIZON 2 FOR 360. PLEASE DO NOT DELETE.
- FirmPlayer487]


Hello everyone! So I thought I would start a thread talking/reviewing FH2 for 360 and others could see if they agree or not!

So overall the game is good, so instead of writing paragraphs about it, I would break it into groups!

What I liked:
-Races (for the most part)
-The diversity of the world
-Car List
-Minor, more nice characters
(*ahem* *ahem* Darius Flynt *ahem*)
-And more

What was ok:
-The world
-In the first, barriers lined every road. In this one, they line RANDOM fields which sometimes is worse. Cruising off road in a Jeep, and randomly you smash into a random fence. What. The. Heck. Also part of the airport is closed off. I don't see why they could have given us the openness of XO version, as that is one of the only things that could be done on 360.
-There are SO many glitches in this game. From random roads, to in the middle of a field, to not being able to switch/even hear the radio.
-The races. Now I said that I liked the races, cause I do, but what I don't like are the missing races like Cross Country. But, because of the painted on terrain which the 360 can only handle, they obviously wouldn't be as fun. Also Hill Climbs should be called "Hill Races". Just saying'.
-How there are only 4 races at each place, and after that, unless you want to do it 9 more times in a different car, you move on. It showed off the map, but the whole Championship thing is weird.

What I did not like:
-Extremly low engine noises.
-Barn Finds being pushed a-pon you. Seriously. I'm only 30% done with the game and I already have 6, going on 7 barn finds. Slow Down.
-Speaking of barn finds, I hate how easy they are [Barn Finds]. Maybe it is because no bushes, crops are in the way, but it has been way to easy to find.
-All the missing features
-Horizon Promo
- Horizon Wheelspin (which is not excusable because it was in H1
-Rain. Dynamic or not, it has been shown before rain can be in the game.
-Road Trips (driving to a certain place with AI, or in XO case, Drivatars)
-The cool cut scenes
-Tuning
-All the missing radio stations (Ninja Tune, Hospital Records, Levante, Inn. Les.)
-And more
-The misleading cut scenes. The little that were there, like in the beginning, talked about the weather (spin outs) and about tuning (If you need tuning, come to me) The mechanic lady was talking.
-Little commentary of the DJ's. This would be ok with 7 radio stations, but because there is 3, you kind of are left hanging.
-Amy. RIP Holly Cruise.
-Using XO screenshots. For cutscenes it is ok because you get to see people with better graphics, but with XO screenshots, it shows how the game can't really stand alone.


Overall the game is ok, for me a 3.8/5. I would ask Sumo to patch some these things in, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if their contract ended on the release date haha! It still is a good game though, if you were a Horizon 1 fan, I suggest H2 for 360 if you can't upgrade. But if you can I have one (pun) word for you: DO.

What do you guys think of the game? The good, the bad, and the ok? Reply below :)

Thought I'd start a thread were people can discuss bugs & glitches rather than clogging up the forums with different threads for different issues.
Every new game has its teething problems, but what bugs or glitches have you found on 360 or One?


..


On 360 I've recently found loading over some of my designs from FH1, parts of the designs are missing or changed entirely. Some specific designs freeze my xbox entirely until I have to reload it.

Also noticed when changing wheel size, there are no rim sizes in inches.

I'm on 360 and the biggest bug I've run into is pretty gamebreaking for me. My game freezes when trying to save vinyl groups and now I can't load or save any new vinyls. I lost 20+vinyls with hours of work put into each. I'm not touching this game until word that a patch is coming. anyway I wont bore you people, here's a link the thread of my biggest problem:
http://forums.forzamotor...e-files-found--WTF.aspx

Other issues/bugs I've encountered include but are not limited to:

-the rim size you mentioned should show the size in inches
-invisible walls all over the roads that I hit while driving, usually bad geometry around corners.
-when in decal/vinyl editor, there should be a sound when moving thing (like the spray sound in H1) just to use as reference when creating
-engines sounds of the car you're in need to be louder. every car around is loud and I cant even hear my engine to shift.
-there needs to be more traffic on the roads. Europe feels like it only has 20 population in this game. the streets of Nice Messina are completely empty all the time. lame.
-in H1 the gps distance indicator was below the map so the background was the car dash and you could actually see it. now the m/km indicator is above the map and I can't see it cuz its white and everything behind it on the road is white. fail.
-when you apply a decal, save to current car, then press B to back to the "Paint" main screen, the vinyl group or decal you were left working on contitues to flash in the background
-the crowds sfx before and after races is doubled to the point where it creates the most annoying echo. poor mixing and trying to get away with cheap crowd sfx. fail.
-oh, and the texture pop-in is probably the worst I've ever seen in any game ever. including all the GTA games. I just cant enjoy the scenery or replays when I see horrible pop-in.
-and so much more I've missed... maybe I'll be back to edit

UPDATE 10/13: just adding to the list
- when auto upgrading a car, the "view list" is gone. that was sorta helpful
-applying vinyl to Hurican top, in-game it appears on the dash and interior but doesn't in the editor
-in the city 'Nice' I fell through he map at the bend in the road that looks like a hockey stick
-in all garages, THE MUSIC SKIPS! not cool!
-I use a speed wheel and the functionality is practically non-existent. did you not think of designing wheel functionality in menus etc.?
-when you customize a color in "Apply decal" it should carry over to "Paint car" in previous colors and vice-versa. otherwise, wuts the point?
- in the StoreFront, there NEEDS to be the symbol to let you know you've already purchased something.
- NO KEYWORD SEARCH IN THE STOREFRONT!!!!!!
- no link to creators page in the Storefront
- no ability to add description to designs when uploading

At this point, I'm just listing what I find as I play and there'll probably be more. Updates soon..

Ah, looks like the threads have been merged. I think there may be another one out there with a list of items people would like addressed however.

There is also a game breaking glitch in the 360 edition of Forza Horizon 2. If you go to anothe rleg of a roadtrip (i.e. san giovanni to Nice) on online free roam then go to singleplayer, the races won't appear. So far, clearing cache, restarting game and console, and changing drives doesn't work.

Seems to be a lot of invisible walls. When trying to cut corners close to buildings, I find myself crashing into nothing :|

There is a bug with 360 wireless wheel. I can't switch to so social/cars/progress tabs with wireless wheel on 360 in the pause menu. Pressing LT/RT does nothing. I can switch just fine with regular 360 controller, but not with the wheel. This is actually a major issue, since I can't access perks menu with the wheel. Most other menus seem to work ok with LT/RT (car paint menu also seems to not work with the wheel though.)

How can I submit this as a bug?

I noticed while taking photo's in the rain that the cars reflections on the ground don't look right. For example, the Ram Runner is missing mirrors and some of tge model around the back of the bed. You can see though the model in these areas,

Is this a glitch or is this person cheating?

He joined after our first S1 first race in an S2 car. He then came almost last in every race and scored over 800k. I won 3/4 races and scored under 50k. What's going on?

The RX7 Transplant in the MX5/Miata usual had a nice, loud, rumbling rotary tick over noise, which is gone. :| .. That was one of my favourite things. Killed. Doubt it's a but though, they seem to have made it worse in so many places!

I agree with the scenery, worse when zooming in photographs gets too much of a good view in those super nintendo quality houses on the hills in the background.

Having issues painting the RS5. It looks like there's a white vinyl covering the whole car with the opacity turned down, besides 2 random squares on the roof.

So the whole car looks a few shades lighter than the one you pick. Really quite annoying.

I have found a bug in the 360 version, when you're in the cockpit view of the Honda NSX-R, the camera is off-center. Has anybody else noticed this or is it just me?
I like cars. I like gaming. What more do you need to know.

He could have spent his time drifting and earning skill points which at the end of the race makes him winner even if he actually crosses the line last. It's a bit messed up right now, but it seems like a deliberate design decision.

It's like this in the Integra Type R, I'm sure it's the same in a lot more cars too.

It seems we haven't been given our moneys worth in this game, everything is worse than FH1, I'm genuinely disappointed at Forza for letting this game to be part of their franchise. I realise it's their way of trying to make people move to the next gen of gaming & it might just work, but really it's just making me want a Playstation.

This is for anyone on 360.. Do the radio DJs talk... ever? I loved hearing the new "news" and "gossip" from the festival so if this was taken out, I will be sad. I know they do on the other 4 radio stations (XO only) so maybe they omitted the talking for the 3 that we get for 360. For me, they only talk when I get a new wristband, or when a barn find is revealed. Anyone else have this issue or is it a glitch for me?

Engine revs freeze at a certain pitch, then jump to the actual rpm. The tach doesn't freeze however it's just an audible bug.
There is popping nosies when in the garage.

I have read about people losing their entire garage of cars and not being able to get them back. I am too scared to play this game until I know it's fixed.

If I'm in the middle of a championship and decide to do a few rivals, when I finish with rivals, it puts me in the car I used for the last championship I finished, NOT the championship I'm currently in. Very annoying having to wait and listen to Yoyo tell me the car I'm in isn't eligible for the current championship before it'll let me choose the car it was supposed to have put me in to begin with!

My Photo's stopped at 240.

The English chap tells you he is now going to pay you for every 10 cars now instead of 30 (or was it 20?). The counter on the 'photo reward' page is stuck at 240 with the $50k reward text grayed out.

But when I take a photo, it goes to the same page noted above, gives me $1k for that photo (not changing the 240), when you get back to your car on the road, there is a little white photo counter that comes up. It is still working and shows me at 243.

So I am afraid when I get to 250, I will not get the reward, or any group of ten after that. At 240, the vehicles are getting to be fewer.

This really needs addressed in the next upcoming patch. I posted here, but I have seen complaints of this happening at lower photo counts on the forum.

I'm playing on XB1 and I have found a glitch with one of the XP boards that's on a dirt road near the main festival hub. It seems that when I crash into the board it will break, however it does not get added to my count of boards smashed. It's quite annoying as it is the last remaining bonus board I need to get the related achievement to smashing all of them.

I've tried quite a few different things in order to get the board to work but nothing seems to change. So far I've tried letting the board reset and hitting it again sometimes using different cars, crashing into the broken remains and waiting for a few minutes after breaking the board. I've also tried other options like quitting and restarting the game, doing a hard restart of my console and even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game. The last remaining thing to try is a new game but that is something I would much rather avoid if possible.

I saw a thread a while ago where someone had something similar but this is different as the board does not get marked on my map like the others did, almost as if the game doesn't recognise that it is there.

Has anyone else found something similar?

From my knowledge T10 created Horizon 2 for X1.

Their kids made the version for 360.

I have posted about this on several threads with no reply.
This is my biggest bug bear as I run a car club and have to keep reverting to a standard controller to do anything
A major pain that should not be.

Keep it on the Black stuff.
