Review: Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels

May 18, 2017 1 min read

On paper, Hot Wheels is a dream mashup for Forza Horizon. This is a series that has always reveled in the ridiculous, putting as much emphasis on stuff like stunt jumps as it does on technical racing. A Hot Wheels partnership seems like an evolution of that formula as it leans into the imaginative in a way that only a post-release add-on can.

Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels sends cars barreling through loop-de-loops, hurtling off ramps, and flying past mechanical dinosaurs. It's zany and it nails the Hot Wheels branding. Unfortunately, it's also a fundamental misunderstanding of what makes Forza Horizon great.
