There are few games that can claim to have a world map to chart your in-game progress, but in Dakar 2 that's the reality. You take part in the most gruelling race our planet has to offer. You race through the more civilised parts of France, Spain and Morocco before attempting to defeat your numerous vehicular opponents, all the while battling with dramatic weather conditions. Your GPS will guide you through the wilderness and, you never know, your co-driver may come in handy too - although that's only an option on four wheels (Dakar 2 lets you navigate the tough desert environment via motorbike, truck or car). Incidentally, however you choose to travel, damage will dent both your vehicle and your chances of victory. Dakar 2 also gives you the option of dropping into the workshop to tinker with your mechanised beast, if customisation is your thing.
