Forza Horizon 4 – Lego Speed Champions DLC – Review

When Forza Horizon 4 Launched late last year I reviewed it and really enjoyed playing it, unfortunately I drifted away from the game without finishing it purely down to the volume of good content to play, I have been meaning to go back and complete more of the game, having missed the Fortune Island DLC when I heard about Lego Speed Champions at E3 I was interested.

Taking me back to the Hot Wheels DLC from Forza Horizon 3 which was simply superb and allowed to drive some of the toy cars I’d had as a child and even now play with my own children, this looked great.

From the minute of starting it you can see the usual Playground Games polish gleaming all over this, the level of detail they put into their worlds is brilliant.

You start off by transporting yourself to the Lego Speed Champions world the same as any other DLC for Forza Horizon, you need to complete challenges and tasks across the world to rebuild your house right next to the Speed Champions festival zone, the tasks can vary from destroying certain numbers of objects to discovering areas or simply completing races and events.

Eventually you will build up your property and also some Lego vehicles that you can then race such as a 1967 Mini to the McLaren Senna or a Ferrari F40, as per usual the detail in the cars is great too, the break apart as you smash them through Lego buildings, fences, trees or pretty much anything else in the environment.

This is quite simply the best Lego driving experience you will find in any Lego game ever but I don’t think the driving mechanics have ever been the highest priority in the Take Two games.

Essentially this is just more of the same Forza Horizon experience just with a Lego twist, it isn’t quite up to the high standards set by the Hot Wheels DLC but I personally think that is potentially down the nature of the Hot Wheels world in that you would have gravity defying tracks with rollercoaster type drops and loops whereas the Lego world is more of a mimicry of the real world.

I’m not saying this is bad by any stretch of things as it a really good add on and brings another fun world to the game, it doesn’t quite scratch the itch the same as Hot Wheels did.
