4.0 out of 5 stars An answer to Codemaster�s critics. 26 Oct. 2004
Firstly, I would like to commend Codemasters for listening to their customers after the disappointments of the previous TOCA incarnation. I had written a review on Amazon and also made my views known on Codemaster's own forum. My observations seemed to have echoed bt many other reviewers.
The improvements to TOCA Race Driver 2 are extensive and hark back to the days when TOCA Touring Cars 2 was the best saloon car racing simulator on the market.
I'm pleased to say that Ryan McKane is no longer with us. The storyline is now far better with no mention of the driver's name and characters talking directly to camera, as though to you. A very nice innovation that helps to draw the gamer into the narrative, which doesn't have that clichèd "Driven by the death of his father..." storyline. This time, in career mode you are merely trying to win races against other hopefuls to get the better drives whilst a film crew is manipulating you and other drivers to heighten tensions on the track. It doesn't really make much difference, if any to the racing, but it's well executed and doesn't take anything away from the gaming experience as in the previous game.
The graphics are vastly improved (which is not something I normally associate with Codemasters) with almost photo-realistic tracks and cars. There don't seem to be any pop-ups on the horizon and frame rate never lags even with 20+ cars on the circuits.
The handling feels so much better, with improved analogue control. You can't just yank on the anchors or jamb down the accelerator, especially in wet conditions. You have to feed in the power and braking needs to be built, unless you like spinning and locking up...

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Genius 29 Jan. 2005
What Gran Turismo does for Cars, Toca does for Race Tracks. It features dozens of the worlds best tracks from Brands Hatch to Laguna Seca to the mighty Bathurst in Australia. If GT is a game for Car fans, Toca is a game for Racing fans.
The twenty car pack racing puts GT to shame, the same can be said for the excellent damage model, just today I flipped an Aston Martin DB9 & utterly wreaked the Body work.
The only problem I have is with the slightly unbalanced story mode; in most races you are set a target rival to beat, but they always start at the front of the grid & you'll be lucky to start above 8th. To be honest this is a relatively minor flaw in an otherwise Phenominal game.
If Toca featured the Nordshlieffe, I wouldn't even be considering buying GT4. And thats saying something

2.0 out of 5 stars Shocking game 15 Jan. 2007
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Even after owning this game for so long I still pick it up every now and then and try to complete it. The reason why I cant is because this game is a joke and I find I have to keep myself entertained with other things just to find the will to finish a race the reasons being.

Although the tracks are well planned and look good the cars don't.

All the computer cars seem to be that little bit faster than yours and not being able to slip stream them means the only time you will get to overtake is in a corner.

The damage is far to over the top for a game and I don't mean cosmetic looks after a collision it will tell you what condition your parts are in and it's never good even after small knocks reducing your speed more.

The handling is the strangest I've ever seen, you can turn into a corner and yes the car will turn and then it just won't be it'll either be going in a funny kind of sideways or straight. If you make a correction in your steering i.e. correct some overseer the car will have next to no response when you reapply your control.

If you end up on the grass, which in this game will happen allot as you can't kick out the tail of the cars it's like controlling a house brick, you will always end up in a 180 spin frustrating.

Some of the races are just a stupid version of hard, I mean its a game not formula 1 training simulation so why do you have to race on ice, if you own the game you will know what I mean its laughable.

On the up side the storyline isn't bad really for a car racer game and the first half of the game is ok also the multiplayer is very enjoyable one of my favourites.

Now the other racing games I own are Need for speed underground 1&2, most wanted and carbon. Toca race driver 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Online Bliss. 26 Nov. 2004
Online with 7 other players is an absolute blast!
The comms are great. It's easy to find your friends
online thanks to a freinds list. Creating & finding
servers are a breeze.
If you find the offline game too easy, then go online
and show us what you can do!
Then show the rest of the world what you can do. That's
right, take on U.S., Australian & European gamers and fly
the flag for the U.K. !
P.s (Use the right analogue stick for throttle/brake, it's
easier to feed in the power)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun!! 5 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
I baught the game recently and i have been playing it for 1 week and i must say that the game is fun, goes on well trough the "storyline" mode as the level of difficulty raises and you have to cope with different driving styiles!
The concept is there... the game is not boring as you will have to face always new challenges.... i guess i still didn't finish it but you could still set up your own campionship wich will be much more harder and stimulating!
The game features the "distructibility" of the car, which it means that if we get over excited at a U corner and we bump into the rear of the opponent car, we will suffer some tyre and engine problems which will slow you down that tiny bit to let you think twice next time to do the same move!
Actually this is for me the best feature.... as many of you readers hopefully like to "drive" always...and not accelerating+breaking+accelerating again!!!
