  • Summary: The anticipated sequel to Ford Racing has finally been created. To sustain its reputation, Ford Racing 2 has new and improved cars, added tracks and challenges, and more thrills than ever. With such a big selection of Ford vehicles - ranging from the '49 Ford to the latest Mustang GT Concept - picking out a car will be a lot harder than you might expect. Ford Racing 2 is ready to put you in the driver's seat and bring you for a ride you'll never want to forget. Are you daring enough to put yourself in that seat? [Gotham Games] Expand

  1. With ranging, alluring challenges that offer tons of key rewards, all under a difficulty that feels just right, FR2 offers an outstanding but affordable package that you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. It just may be the best ten bucks you’ve ever spent.
  2. Surprisingly playable. [Jan 2004, p.118]
  3. 49
    The arcadey physics and simple tracks make for a pretty bland experience.
  4. Offers very little to recommend to any racing gamer, and with so many other great racing games to choose from, there’s no reason in trying to justify a purchase out of a game that is clearly lacking in depth or originality.
  5. This game has some of the worst driving physics I’ve ever seen in a racing game.

    This is a great buy! For 9.99 you get a game that is very similar to Burnout and Burnout 2....let's call this one Burnout Zero!!!

    ...for 1/5th the price. I never thought this game would be as good as it is. I have been raving about Ford Racing 2 (PS2) for days now (I only bought it a couple of days ago, but the raving will NEVER stop)! For the price, I have never seen a better game that made me want to play it more and more. The physics (near spot on, for various reasons known), the graphics - they are GREAT! I can't say enough about them The Sound - near perfect The Options - crazy amount of options like Dolby Digital II, Support for Driving Force and Driving Force Pro steering wheels, Wide Screen or Standard The Graphics - great replays, lighting and particle effects ...and the Gameplay - one of the best I've seen to date! Period. Allowing the option to unlock this car or that car is nothing short of sheer brilliance. Include the fact that I unlock something after almost EVERY race?! If you like racing, get it. If you love Ford cars/trucks, get it! If you want a great game without shelling out 5 times the price, stop reading this review and GET THE GAME. Expand

    Fairly playable and for 20 notes you can't really moan about it.

    What's great about this game is how the cars feel. The Mach 1 is a boat in the corners. The GT90 Concept is F1 tight. Watching the replay is half the fun. The landscapes are done quite well. The big old V8s sound great. The whole disk is more like a bunch of mini-games using Fords from 6 decades. The drafting challange is my favorite. There is no tweeking the cars and so what? Who doesn't have a dozen games and three Gran Turismos to do that with? This is a great game for $10! I give it a 7 judging it against driving games at any price, but a 10 for every dollar it cost brand new. Expand
