What a feeling of driving a car in this game. I had a lot of fun. But you need to know, that you must know the tracks very well, the time difference between driving a bend good and great is big, so you will need a lot of practice. the idea of implementing a driving school to learn every sector of a track is great. I wished there will be something similar to understand the many options to setup your car. And the manual doesnt help either. Dont forget to download some graphic mods, that makes the game very good looking even today.
Yes, you can play this game with a Gamepad, it only needs to have a lot of analog possibilities.I played with the XBOX controller and it worked. Of course you will see after some hours, why a wheel and pedals are better for this game, but anyway it is still playable.
In GTR 2, the casual gamer still doesn’t have a game that will easily cater to them, but the hardcore racing fans have a new benchmark for racing sims on the PC to play with, even if the slider has only moved slightly on from the original GTR.
You may love that it has some of the best physics out there and that it can blow GT or Forza out of the water in that department. But then again, you'll probably hate the bland graphics, steep learning curve, and shoddy multiplayer.
This is the only racing game I admit so far. It depends largely on driving skills, and gives a great feeling and experience to the player especially with the gaming steering wheel. GTR 2 has been made with a rare dedication and proficiency. For that and by considering everything else I didn't mention. GTR 2 shouldn't be rated less than 10.
Best PC Racing Game of All Time at the Moment. Great content and features with added great game play and modes that include a racing school and a long list of championships to compete. The driving has all levels of difficulty to accommadate all users with all types of controller hardware. Scalable weather and time acceleration in 24hr scales. Great physics and car selections plus the ability to add some of the loads of add on content created by the community along with great league support still make this the best racing sim of all time
Play it with a Wheel of course. My favorite game of all times. Played it 2500h+ between 2006-2009.
Has some shortcomings but Simbin never did better so far. RACE07 and subsequents addons where not as good.
