Race Driver 2 is great fun. Unlike the majority of racing
games, every level brings with it a new and exciting vehicle
to race (or a selection of vehicle tournaments to choose from).
This not only keeps the gameplay fresh, it also keeps the
gamer in suspense as to what race they will be offered next.
graphics are pretty impressive, the handling of each vehicle
differs, and there are over 50 different race tracks to compete
the downside, the races are never overly challenging. After
a few shaky starts, I sailed through them, coming first in
almost every race. It was only when I got to the rally car
races that I had to spend some time getting used to the car,
but once I had finished the first race in third position,
I managed to finish first in the remaining races on almost
my first attempts.
also had a problem with the game's a.i. Sadly, the drivers
of the other vehicles don't seem to be aware of you and will
occasionally push you off the track if you try to pass them.
Not only that, but they seem to be unaffected when they do
this, while you are sent spinning off into a wall. Not only
that, but attempt to ram them off the road and no matter what
you do they won't retire from the race.
while we're on the subject of crashing. I was very impressed
with the way that your car gets damaged. In my hours of gaming
so far I have managed to loose numerous tyres, entire front
axles, front windscreens, had my doors flapping in the wind,
and numerous other nice little touches that help to add realism
to the races.
cut sequences, which represent the essential linking while
in story mode, are pretty impressive. They are about as lifelike
as you can get at present on the PS2.
you are after some fun racing, where you don't always come
last, then this is worth checking out.
