Review: Forza Horizon 3 Blizzard Mountain
Blizzard Mountain has been already released. It makes the Forza Horizon 3 game more and more challenging. The expansion that you possess will work because any Forza Horizon DLC will run. The framework looks good. Aside from that, the little snowstorm will not be able to bury your car. This addition only helps the racing more prominent. Australia is a great country where getting snow. The race that you take part in is set in the outback because it is a suitable place including deserts and rainforests with cities. At the starting stage, you can see a car from a cargo helicopter. It is dropped and abandoned in a winter wonderland so that it can race away to an interesting festival. The function of Blizzard Mountain will be seen as a miniature version of the original Forza Horizon 3 racing video game. It will take place in a much smaller area where you can find 50 roads to discover with 26 races. You can receive a lot of standard stuff like the speed zones, bucket list challenges, dangerous jumps, and so on while Showcases, which once considered as the over-the-top action-filled races, are excluded.
The progression of Blizzard Mountain is also similar to Horizon 3. Nevertheless, you will realize something different from the official release. That is you will try your best to obtain stars instead of earning fans as always. Every tenth start that you collect will allow you to unlock new events. It also gives to you the chance to approach the King position of the Mountain. Additionally, the star system will append an extra layer of Horizon-like spirit to Blizzard Mountain. Each racing will have their limitation that you have to complete so as to gain all of the three stars. One of them is granted to players when they fulfill the race while two stars will be rewarded when they win. After you have three stars, you will be asked to beat and perform another task. Maybe, you will have to hit a point goal throughout the challenge or do ultimate air jumps. It can link the gap between the “win at all costs” and the “screw around and score points”. Also, it will require you to drive your car faster than anything. This is the dissonance that you can experience when putting them together. It should be improved in the future Horizon entries.
As the title that this add-on shows, it offers conditions so that Blizzard Mountain becomes the main attraction. The cold weather will accord some racing although it is on black ice. You will move through snowy fields or across frozen lakes. Meanwhile, your vehicle can slide around. That is to time for you to show up your own driving skill when you must control the steering wheel and avoid losing the balance. It’s so dangerous and thrilling to sudden drive through a whiteout! But, you will have a lot of funny moments when you plow through snowmen!
The problem that Forza Horizon 3: Blizzard Mountain gets is that not everybody knows what a Show-Off skill is, or a Kangaroo skill is. In addition to this, the game that you are joining will not offer any help. You need to defeat the race and hold the skill objective which is something frustrating, drifting 30 times will slow you down in corners and the A.I will not be doing the same for you. Track layouts can cause some frustration for you because it can throw uneven jumps at you in an instant, leading to some rolls and smashes which are out of your reach. If all of the full damages are switched on, you can turn it down to cosmetic as your cars or trucks will break up into small parts beneath your seat. You will get trouble when you want to terminate the most off-road races.
Blizzard Mountain will supply plenty of snow tires which are essential for drivers to undergo the difficulties without getting injured. You are recommended to use them for cars provided with the add-on. They are the 2016 Ford Gymkhana 9 Focus RS-RX, the 1966 Ford F-100 Flareside Abatti Racing Trophy Truck, the 1975 Lancia Stratos HF Group 4, the 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Group B, the 2016 Nissan Titan Warrior Concept, the 2016 RJ Anderson #37 Polaris RZR-Rockstar Energy Pro 2 Truck, and the 2016 Subaru #199 WRX STI VT15r Rally Car. Despite dashing through the snowy area is a fine way to escape from the hot Aussie outback, it is not necessary. In case you buy a new car to take it to an event, you will probably struggle. The snow tires are the addition to the game. They are important to keep your car pointing in the right direction. When you change a new car, it doesn’t fit these anymore. You should attempt to be the winner. If you equip a Lamborghini Centenario with snow tires, it will be one of the funniest drives that you have had.
Indeed, you will have the time to check your ability when you engage races against snow, ice, extreme elevations and blizzards while you are trying to dominate the throne. Once you step into this insane alpine playground in eight new cars and trucks consisting of the 2016 Ford GYMKHANA 9 Focus RS-RX, you will recognize that you can leave soon. Let’s get ready to engage thrilling new mountain race events like Hill Climb, Descent, and Blizzard Races! Also, uncover secrets in new Bucket List Blueprints, Rivals events, Xbox Live Achievements, a new barn find car, and much more.
