  1. The combat style was a neat addition, as was the ability to customize many aspects of your plane including the looks, but overall the sim style of gameplay just made the actual racing piece feel a little too slow.
  2. Does a very good job of representing the sport that inspired the game. This also means that unless you’re really into the air racing scene, many of the minor demerits (bland graphics, the scarcity of the sounds, the extensive load times) will discourage rather than delight.
  3. Little more than a two-year-old repackaging job that fixes little and adds even less. [Jan 2004, p.107]
  4. Though developer Victory Simulations has kick-started things somewhat by adding a flock of new planes and courses--and a none-too-challenging combat mode--Redline: Xtreme Racing 2 otherwise looks the same, feels the same, and sports the same annoying quirks as its precursor.
  5. I'm willing to forgive quite a bit for a budget title as long as there is some redeeming quality to the gameplay. Sadly, since the graphic engine inhibits performance so much and doesn't allow you to experience the feeling of speed you'd expect, it's hard to get excited about this game.
