Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged is a sequel to Hot Wheels Unleashed from 2021 - an arcade racing game based on the license of popular Mattel toys. Just like before, it was developed and published by Italian studio Milestone.
The game consists of fast-paced, wacky races on twisted tracks, made mostly of distinctive orange plastic. We'll also get to compete on other surfaces, depending on which of the five different locations we're racing in (backyard, arcade, gas station, dinosaur museum, mini golf course).
The tracks in Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged are more inventive than in the first installments. The player now has two new skills to use during the race: a jump and a dash. They let us ram our opponents, avoid traps and obstacles, interact with the environment or reach alternate tracks.
There are over 130 toy cars in the game, as well as new additions in the form of motorcycles and quads. Vehicles are divided into three distinct classes, while the player can personalize their driving style by purchasing perks with skill points.
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged supports singleplayer, as well as online and split-screen multiplayer.
The base gameplay mode is the story career. It tasks us with saving a city from destruction alongside four allies, who we get to know better during animated cutscenes.
There are some standard singleplayer modes - quick race and time trial - as well as challenges tasking us with ramming opponents or drifting.
There's also a track editor, more expanded than it was in the first game, as well as the custom sticker and paintjob creator.
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged runs on the Unreal Engine. Just like in the first game, the toy vehicles look near photorealistically.
