TOCA Race Driver 2 (Microsoft Xbox, 2004)
In Box is out of stock!
|Codemasters returns to the racing fold once more with Race Driver 2. On this occasion, you can race your way through 15 different types of motorsport including the usual supercars and stock car types to the more unique rally, formula ford and supertruck types, plus much more.
ToCA Race Driver 2: The Ultimate Racing Simulator is the follow-up to Codemasters' original Pro Race Driver. Like the first game, this sequel features a series of racing challenges strung together using a reality TV-styled storyline. A total of 31 licensed and fictional race locations offer 52 tracks for more than 15 different racing styles, such as GT sports car racing, Street Racing, Rally, and Rally Cross.
The game's new "Terminal Damage Engine" was developed to accurately reflect various types of damage in both the appearance and performance of the player's car. Damage sustained by cars in the game is based on actual observations made while viewing real-life racing accidents. Each virtual car was developed with thousands of deformation points, allowing for realistic collision consequences that could prove to be educational, if not gut-wrenching. Sound effects were created with similar devotion to detail -- if the player drops a transmission or throws a rod, the sound will be unmistakable.
Race Driver 2's single-player mode features competition against 11 other racers for a shot to be part of the Grand Prix Team. Online multiplayer races support up to 16 players. There are 35 different cars available to race (or destroy), including beauties such as the Astin Martin Vanquish, Jaguar XKR, AMG Mercedes CLK, and Ford GT.
The game received "generally favorable reviews" on all platforms except the Australian Xbox version, which received "universal acclaim", according to video game review aggregator Metacritic.
