Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

TOCA Race Driver, the first of the TOCA racing series to feature on the PS2, screeches in with a whole new gameplay twist. The usual single race and multiplayer races, plus 38 tracks and 42 cars, are still here, but the real development is the story mode. You take on the part of young racer Ryan McKane, initially testing for a small racing team with the ultimate aim of becoming world champion; the result is a very immersive experience in which the player progresses with McKane, moving through simple races and on to the cut and thrust of the worldwide circuit.

Those familiar with the previous TOCA games will immediately notice that the car's handling has been made easier--a second spent off the track doesn't end up in those frustrating spins. However, the more arcade-like style of handling may lead to fans of more hardcore racing games being a touch disappointed. Graphically the game is great, although a 60Hz mode should have been included. Damage, scenery and all the other cars whiz around the courses with little or no slowdown.

All in all, TOCA Race Driver is a superb racing game mixed with a new innovative style of game progression that produces much entertainment and excitement. --Laurent S Hall

Product Description

TOCA Race Driver is the next evolution of Codemasters' renowned Touring Car series. At its core, Race Driver remains an intense, realistic racing game, but introduces an innovative new feature to the racing series--a narrative character-based storyline. Players assume the role of aspiring test driver Ryan McKane, looking to prove himself in the world of racing. Driven by the death of his father and a lifetime spent in the shadow of his brother, Ryan McKane rages into the spotlight of a world that respects only winners. As Ryan, take a grip on the wheel and chase down his destiny in a hi-octane career of fast and furious racing. Race Driver features up to 14 cars gunning for position on track at once, a vehicle damage system which dynamically affects on track performance, and a state-of-the-art physics engine tested for realism by professional race drivers. There are 13 global championships, including official series, 42 licensed touring and race cars, including Mercedes-Benz CLK, Alfa Romeo GTV, Dodge Viper GTS-R, with AI that allows them to behave just like their real life counterparts, and 38 international circuits recreated under license including Bathhurst, Hockenhiem, Charlotte, and Silverstone. Races are interspersed with rich cinematic sequences which drive the narrative character-based storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stand up if you hate Ryan McKane 31 May 2005
Format:Video Game
This is a decent game, but could have been extended so much more from the superb Toca World Touring Cars on the PS1. The game features 13 licensed championships including Toca Tour, DTM, and Pacific series, and loads of cars, many of which can be unlocked. The racing is of a good standard, with up to 14 cars on track. The graphics are good, especially on some of the tracks, but some of the cars do look a bit sketchy in places. The overall gameplay is reasonably good, but the thing that really makes the game is the career. You are Ryan McKane (a complete tw@t, ahem) trying to work your way up through the ranks and emulate your brother and your father, who died 15 years ago in an accident. Of course it was no accident, and you obviously come face to face with the man responsible. The story is good and well drafted, with good depth. The cut scenes are nice touches too.
Overall a good game, with a superb story. Shame about the main charecter, who many have grown to loathe. 8/10

4.0 out of 5 stars TOCA RACE DRIVER 26 Nov 2004
By BigDunc
Format:Video Game
Having completed TOCA 2 on PS1, this game was initially a let down. However, its a decent racer. Initially, it seemed quite tough until I worked out that you cannot steer at the same time as you brake. Master this and the games a cinch.
The game progress structure is good and the underlying storyline does give a sense of some involvement. The graphics and sound are a bit dated now. Rememer to do the challenges as you progress, you'll need to have won a few when you eventually make it to the Elite Championship as you can only race with the cars you've won.
In essence this game is World Touring Cars for PS2. A worthwhile blast if you are into racing and unfortunately the only thing on PS2 that resembles the BTCC.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as driving gets on the ps2 19 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
As a die-hard car enthusiast and computer driving games fan, I have always enjoyed pc driving sims such as Midtown madness and the superb TOCA 2. Naturally, when it came to buying a ps2 I just had to buy Gran Turismo....and what a disappointment it was with its totally unrealistic handling, though the graphics were awesome I admit. However, with the arrival of TOCA Race Driver I have eventually found a ps2 driving game that offers good handling, good graphics and a nice choice of camera angles including the excellent 'in-car' dashboard views. If you get through the whole game you end up with a superb selection of vehicles ranging from a slow yet fun mini to a very fast toyota or MG le mans style racer.
The difference in cars is not only felt through the speed, but also through the handling. Some cars, such as the mini or lotus elise, are responsive and perfectly weighted, whereas one or two such as the TVR speed 12 are disappointingly heavy and difficult to drive.
In summary, if you liked toca or toca 2 you'll like this, though the game is an evolution of these previous titles rather than being revolutionary in itself. Nevertheless, gameplay is good, cars are responsive and the game outclasses Gran turismo thanks to its realism and avoidance of being an arcade racer. The graphics could be better but, frankly,who cares when the rest of the game more than compensates. A definite buy for anyone who enjoys driving games!

4.0 out of 5 stars Power and Glory or the Pits? 3 Sep 2002
Format:Video Game
The TOCA series has always promised much, and usually delivered. However, with Race Driver, there seems to be a fair amount of dissapointment to dampen the enjoyment. I will start with the major flaws, saving the positive aspects till the end, as there are some surprisingly excellent touches. Firstly, for anyone who has played the superb World Touring Cars on the PS1- this is just an extension of that - minus the night races! However, the pop-ups are glaringly frequent, and the rendering fuzzy and lacking detail on some views. The sound, especially of the bonus cars is appalling on some replays (again, the real attention has gone into the 'official' race machines), and the handling, whilst great, is just too safe and simple (only the bonus vehicles present any kind of powersliding challenges!) - In three or so sesssions I am nearly half way through the 'intermediate' league with a Schumacheresque win rate! This game has been Americanised (literally), needlessly, and dumbed down a notch from the PS1 series. The good points; well, Mini Coopers, Marcos, TVR Tuscan Challenge, and NASCAR type racing, along with some pretty good car models (lovely interiors in some cases) for one! Secondly, blasting through the old Hockenheim Circuit in a GT1, as viewed from the wide angle bonnet cam produces the most incredible (and smooth) sensation of speed I have ever witnesses - absolutely terrifying!
I cannot claim this is a full review, as this game keeps surprising me at every turn in my limited time with it. However, this title has been a disappointment in many ways - a sideways move from the PS1 rather than the great leap forward we had all expected. The pack shots seem to contain some high end photos - an admission in my humble opinion of a game not quite delivering on it's promises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Codemasters does it again 24 Aug 2002
Format:Video Game
As a big fan of the previous TOCA games and a big fan of touring cars, I was very much looking forward to this game. This game lives up to all the hype around it. TOCA race driver perfects the idea of World Touring Cars. The storyline also adds something to the game. The cut scenes have very impressive graphics, and there aren't too many of them. The story so far is also quite good. The handling of the cars is a good mix between arcade and simulation. To get a good start you can't just plant the throttle, and stamping on the brake causes the brakes to lock up. Each car has its own handling characteristics. The menus in games aren't normally something to talk about, but they are very impressive in this game. The wide array of cars and circuits mean you will never get bored of this game. The graphics are very impressive (while not quite upto GT3 & GTConcept standard, but this game is about great racing) and the damage is just amazing. Some of the crashes you have are gorgeous to watch. The damage also has a realistic effect on the cars performance. The only downside is a bit of slowdown in the really big crashes. The engine noise is also very realistic, and the radio from the pits during races is a nice thing. There is also a good setup screen with all the options you want. THe advice from the mechanic helps for the less experienced racer. The racing is also very exciting and closely matched. The drivers do defend the line when you try and pass. They will even pass you. There is none of the computer players just staying on the racing line. The computer players also make mistakes, so you can come round a corner and have a car sat in the middle of the road. Another great addition is the fact that the computer cars take revenge on you for something you did to them. Read more ›
