  1. This game has some of the worst driving physics I’ve ever seen in a racing game.
  2. 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.

    The arcadey physics and simple tracks make for a pretty bland experience.
  4. Surprisingly playable. [Jan 2004, p.118]
  5. 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.

    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!!!

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

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. Full Review »
