    Synetic has a basic grounding in good car physics and better-than-average artificial intelligence, which gives World Racing 2 an underlying level of quality. Unfortunately, its poor presentation, rough course design and horrific car designs add to the game's poor sense of balance and fairness.
  2. World Racing 2 makes a couple of key improvements on its predecessor, but it's still a substandard effort.
  3. With a few improvements over the first game and the lack of online play, this title might not have what it takes to go head-to-head with better Xbox racing games like Forza or Project Gotham Racing but it's a nice alternative to the more serious racing game.
  4. Synetic's World Racing 2 presents a compelling argument why middle-of-the-road arcade racers shouldn't reproduce. [Nov. 2006, p.81]
  5. With many other much better racers available World Racing 2 should stay in the garage.
  6. The racing just isn't innovative or special enough to compliment the car lineup, and the Career mode is just too bare bones.
  7. Don't let the Live Enabled packaging fool you - there's no online racing, only a few limp content downloads and local four-player split-screen.
  8. World Racing 2 is not a horrible game, and there are actually some nice features here, but it's still not worth the $20 price tag.

    A very different experience from all the driving games released recently, which might well be its saving grace.
