  1. 50
    A very different experience from all the driving games released recently, which might well be its saving grace.
  2. 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.
  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. 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.
  5. The racing just isn't innovative or special enough to compliment the car lineup, and the Career mode is just too bare bones.
  6. Synetic's World Racing 2 presents a compelling argument why middle-of-the-road arcade racers shouldn't reproduce. [Nov. 2006, p.81]
  7. With many other much better racers available World Racing 2 should stay in the garage.
  8. 45
    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.
  9. World Racing 2 makes a couple of key improvements on its predecessor, but it's still a substandard effort.
