I’m gonna make it straight from the beginning. TOCA Race Driver 2 IS still the ULTIMATE racing simulator. Still unbeaten in terms of graphics pleasure, variety of automobiles (35 including Ford GT, AC Cobra, Jaguar E-Type, Jaguar XKR, Land Rover 4x4, Nissan Skyline GT-R, Subaru WRX Impreza, large trucks, Hot Rod, 3 DTM autos (Audi TT, Opel Vectra & Mercedes-Benz CLK AMG), GT Light, Formula Ford and Formula 1 parody on dessert) and tracks (48 tracks on 31 different licensed and fictional locations), campaign, sense of competition, quality of video story (all from first person view!) and its comedy, and, ultimately, fun.
The game doesn't seem to mock at you with its difficulty. It’s no hardcore like Gran Prix Legends or recent GTR or GT Legends. Force Feedback wheels are welcome.
It’s up to 21 cars on the track at one time.
TOCARD2 includes online and hot-seat multiplayer that is very addictive.
Words hardly can describe the feeling of this game. If I had to choose only one racing game to play for the rest of life I would choose this one.
P.S. TOCA Race Driver 3 is the ultimate racing disappointment. While offering more cars (even monster trucks), fresh tracks and better graphics, the game lost its predecessor’s cheerful gameplay and story. Better keep out.
