Product Description

Project Gotham Racing 2 is the newest version of the critically acclaimed Project Gotham Racing franchise.

Players also can race against up to three friends at once through a multiplayer SystemLink or match up against players online utilising Xbox Live.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Fast circuits and faster cars combine with deep, challenging gameplay to make Microsoft's Project Gotham Racing II one of the most exciting Xbox experiences to date. With over 100 different types of vehicle, including SUVs, compact cars and even Porsches and Ferraris, PGR creates an experience that is both engaging and exciting. It has the spirit of "just one more go" like little else.

In offline mode, players compete for Kudos points, taking part in time trials, road races and a variety of high-speed challenges that allow them to unlock new cars and circuits from the many on offer. These unlocked treats can then be played single player or taken online and raced with competitors over the Xbox Live system.

It's almost bewildering to race around the tight streets of Italy in a Mini Cooper then take over the wheel of some ludicrously overpowered American muscle car and attempt to keep it in a straight line as the power to the back wheels constantly forces it to fishtail out of control. Full credit must go to programmers Bizarre Creations for not only furnishing the game with a broad range of vehicles but also making each one feel so very different--changing car classes can be quite a challenge.

With locations around the world (Australia, Russia, Spain and even Edinburgh featuring strongly), the graphical look of the game is lush and a real treat for the eyes. Birds soar lazily over the racetracks, there's no popup to speak of and in Yokohama even the big wheel in the distant fairground is fully animated--though at the speed this games moves along it's unlikely you'll have time to check it out.

Take PGR2 online and the fun really begins--there's simply nothing like blasting through the tyre smoke of a multi-car pile-up and taunting the opposition as you roar into the distance. Pages could be written about how engaging, absorbing, deep and exciting this game is but it's enough to say it's destined to be a massive hit. It's a must for petrol-heads everywhere. --Chris Russell

Thats all I can say, wow... Let me start off by saying this IS THE BEST racer for the Xbox by far, and possibly the best racer ever made.
The sheer volume of this game is overwhelming, you have 102 cars in the game, 172 Races in the World Series and an infinite amount online. As soon as you pick up the game and start the first World Series race, you realise the jaw-dropping graphics of the game, There is no 30 FPS like you find on NFSU, it runs perfectly smoothe.
The beauty of this game is that it doesn't matter if your a racing game fanatic petrol-head, or a novice to racing games, you won't be missing out. The difficaulty settings playable for every race range from the very easiest bronze medals (novice), right through to platinum medals in expert mode. And there will always be a game to suit your standard online.
Let me talk about the cars for a second. Each one is rendered beautifully to look almost identical to it's real life replica. Choose to race anything from a Mini Cooper, a Honda Civic, SUVs, Pick-up trucks, Porche 911s, the 600+ hp Enzo Ferrari, or even the insanely fast TVR Cerbera Speed 12.
Each one actually handles different, it is no longer a case of 'the fastest car wins' as most car games are, each car suits a particular driving style, and there isn't a car that is put in just for show.
Then you get onto the actual driving, I have NEVER played a racing game that drives as realistically as this. I may have to retract that statement when GT4 comes out, but there is no more crashing into corners and keep on going, no more hurtle through bins, lamp posts and postboxes and keep going like you get with NFSU,this game requires BRAKING.

MS game Studios and Bizarre Creations have done a fantastic job with this game. When the original Project Gotham hit the shelves it was almost as big a hit as Halo, and the two games together placed X-Box argably in the lead of the gaming market.
Anyone who still doubts the domination of the X-Box needs only look at Project Gotham Racing 2. You won't find it for anything else.
This sequel has somehow managed to be vastly superior to it's predecessor, with many more tracks in many different real-world locations, and a massive amount more cars.
The game has been rebuilt from scratch, with amazing attention to detail, in all areas. Graphic and sound quality are sublime, with scenery decorated with photo-realistic textures.
The physics are hugely improved, and you will really notice a difference in driving style between each car.
Importantly, the game is more involving, in that it caters for people with different tastes. If you want to jump straight into the game in an arcade fashion, drive cars, win races, you can do it. If you want to work hard at it and learn the way the different cars act, then you will be further rewarded for it.
The ultimate reward for working though the Kudos World Series mode surely has to be the unlocking of Germany's Nurburgring. Every mile of the infamous circuit has been mapped brilliantly, and you will be surprised at how many hours can be spent soaring around it in your GT1 car, trying to get your lap time below the 6-and-a-half minute mark.
The game offers the option of walking around a massive car showroom area, where you can look at the cars you have yet to 'buy', and those you already have unlocked. The variety of cars is astounding, with everything from classics like the Porsche Carrera RS 2.

Don't listen to all those people who say PGR2 won't live up to GT4, its a game all its own, with a slightly more arcade driving model, and a completely different style to Polyphonics opus. Where GT is all about gear ratios, massive turbos and cars by the bucket load, even if they are slow ones, PGR and its sequel are about driving with style, finesse and in the fastest machines money can buy, and some machines money can't. From 60's muscle cars like the corvette stingray and Shelby Cobra, to the Ferrari Enzo and Konigsegg CC 8S, 40 years of motoring exotica's are in here, and not a trace of every Japanese car under the sun, just the best ones!!
Then there are the tracks, GT has a few real tracks, such as Laguna Seca, and the rest fictional tracks, PGR2 has dozens of tracks for each of the ten cities in the game, including Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Moscow, Washington DC, and the full length 8 mile Nurburgring circuit in Germany.
One area where PGR2 will really excel will be online play, not only will you be able to race against up to seven other players, but the best player in the world for each track will have his ghost saved to the Live! servers, so those who race that track can see exactly how you got that spectacular laptime.
Ultimately, any true racing nut should have both of these games, but if you must have one and you prefer to let your driving do the talking rather than the size of your turbocharger, then PGR2 is the game for you.

Project Gotham Racing 2 is the consummate experience for all racing fans, effortlessly combining astounding visuals with compulsive game play to form a truly irresistible package.
The larger part of the game revolves around the Kudos World Series where players must traverse the globe, taking in the stunning architecture of cities such as Hong Kong, Florence and Barcelona. By driving with style and panache players are rewarded with Kudos points which are then used to buy one of the great cars on offer which come under different categories such as roadsters or super cars etc. Classic models such as the Porsche 550 Spyder and the Caterham 7 compliment the more contemporary cars such as the lavish Enzo Ferrari and the funky Lotus 340R. In fact every car in this game is an absolute joy to behold and all handle in their own unique way making for a richer and more rewarding driving experience.
There are many ways of earning Kudos points from the more ordinary such as driving cleanly through a certain section of track and overtaking to the more obscure such as driving on two wheels and completing a 360 degree spin. This is a wonderful and much needed breath of fresh air for a genre fast becoming stagnant. The challenges you must complete also offer great diversity. Along with street races against up to seven opponents there are one on ones, hot laps, challenges where you must overtake a certain number of cars in a given time period, speed camera challenges where you must drive at a certain speed through a section of track and also cone challenges where you must complete a sort of slalom course by going through cone gates and trying to link kudos points into one long chain. You have about two seconds to reach each gate before the chain is broken.
