Don't let you miss the number by name, Race Driver 2 is just after TOCA 1, TOCA 2 and TOCA Race Driver (aka: Pro Race Driver, V8 Race Driver and DTM Race Driver), the fourth production from a series of well-known racing games. Another part of the Codemasters Race Driver 2: The Ultimate Racing Simulator was released on Xbox and PeCety. Both versions have the ability to conduct duels over the Internet (multiplayer up to 12 players at the same time), and a single player career mode. It is worth mentioning that, as in the previous part of the game, an interesting plot was woven into the game in one-person mode.
Race Driver 2 is an ambitious project of a game about car sports, in which we have the opportunity to participate in 30 global championships (e.g. "The World Cup", "The World Cup", "The World Cup", "The World Cup" and "The World Cup"): GT Sports Car Racing, Street Racing, Rally, DTM, V8 Supercars, Global GT Lights, Rally Cross, Formula Ford, Open Wheel Grand Prix and Classic Car Racing), racing on 56 routes. In the game we have access to 35 licensed cars, the best brands in the world, such as Aston Martin (V12 Vanquish, DB7 and DB5), Jaguar (XJ220, XKR and E-Type), Ford (Mustang Cobra R, Ford GT, GT90, F150 Lightning Pick-up, Falcon BA), Holden Commodore VY, Mitsubishi 3000 GT, Mitsubishi EVO 7, Subaru Impreza WRX, ABT-Audi TT-R, Opel Astra V8 Coupe and AMG-Mercedes CLK.
Graphic design of the game looks very impressive. All the cars we meet during the game have been carefully recreated, the same applies to the routes, tracks and the whole environment - not to say that the characters of drivers consist of as many as 12 thousand polygons. Vehicles have a unique system of destruction, very realistically simulating all failures caused by car collisions - of course, all damages to the car body or chassis are immediately visible (dents, detached elements, telescopic wheels, etc.). Compared to TOCA Race Driver, the "intelligence" of computer opponents has also been improved.
