  1. I’ve just had so much fun with this game that it’s practically renewed my interest in PC racing single handedly.
  2. GTR 2 is the best installment thus far in the series, which, for many gamers, will make this the best racing game ever seen on the PC-if not of all time.
  3. Simbin has gone above and beyond my expectations on creating a game that sticks to real life as much as possible yet still remains fun to play.
  4. Online play does pose a few more problems; not just technically, but simply in being able to find a race. Unless you're already involved with an online racing community, you'll probably struggle to find people on open servers to race wheel-to-wheel with.
  5. It's an expansive and challenging sequel to one of the best racing games of last year and, at its price, it remains one of the best bargains of the year for the PC.
  6. A game that demands your total attention, it will consume it, and you’ll need to refine your skills in order to get anywhere. If you don’t think you’re up to that kind of challenge then you may want to pass, and seek something a little more forgiving. For the real racing fans, and gear heads among the gaming community, you’ll want this – want this bad!
  7. You may love that it has some of the best physics out there and that it can blow GT or Forza out of the water in that department. But then again, you'll probably hate the bland graphics, steep learning curve, and shoddy multiplayer.

It depends largely on driving skills, and gives a great feeling and experience to the player especially with the gaming steering wheel. GTR 2 has been made with a rare dedication and proficiency. For that and by considering everything else I didn't mention. GTR 2 shouldn't be rated less than 10. Expand

Great content and features with added great game play and modes that include a racing school and a long list of championships to compete. The driving has all levels of difficulty to accommadate all users with all types of controller hardware. Scalable weather and time acceleration in 24hr scales. Great physics and car selections plus the ability to add some of the loads of add on content created by the community along with great league support still make this the best racing sim of all time Expand

    Played the demo on my old wheel that I've had for ages, and immediately "felt" that this was the one. I've never really been Played the demo on my old wheel that I've had for ages, and immediately "felt" that this was the one. I've never really been tempted to lash out on expensive hardware, just for this one type of gaming... But, needless to say, + retail copy, + Logitech Racing Momo, - $several, I am in racing heaven. The driving school alone is truly excellent, and of itself hugely enjoyable and rewarding. There are few games I can think of that not only insist you get better, but actually make you want to do so. (damned if I'm not going to take away a Gold Gear on every single lesson from that instructor, on full realism!) Pure, nerve-racking, racing bliss on the PC. Expand

    Yes, this is an excellent racing sim, just as GTR was, and that's the problem. I bought GTR the day it was released, and I've Yes, this is an excellent racing sim, just as GTR was, and that's the problem. I bought GTR the day it was released, and I've played it almost every day since, and I really can't say that GTR2 is that much better. The only signiicant improvement in GTR2 is that it adds a few more cars and tracks (most of which were already available on the net for the first game anyway), the addition of a training mode, and addition of mini championships. Other than that, this is basically GTR all over again - the graphics are just a hair better now, and the driving physics are a tad easier this time around. Still an amazing game, but I can't give it more than 8 stars because I was expecting a more significant improvement over GTR. Expand
