Product Description

Product Description

Project Gotham Racing 2 is the newest version of the critically acclaimed Project Gotham Racing franchise. Rewarding drivers for focusing on speed and style while still taking risks around every corner, Project Gotham Racing 2 offers circuit-based racing through highly detailed, photorealistic urban environments. Racers can choose from more than 50 of the hottest cars while learning their way around new and exciting cities, mastering corners, and accelerating through the straightaways before moving to a different venue. 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

I've recently bought Halo 2, Pro Evolution Soccer 4 & Star Wars Battlefront, but I've hardly played them because Project Gotham 2 has kept my attention for over 12 months.
When I first got this game, I was slightly dissapointed with the graphics, as they are not are 'sharp' as some racing games (eg TOCA 2), but after a while I realised that is because they are more realistic. The graphics are representative of what you see at 100 mph, so they won't be pin-sharp, but saying that, they're still excellent, and the cars look teriffic.
Where this title wins hands down is in the gameplay department. I played this game on single player mode for over 6 months, and loved it. The handling of the cars is excellent, and once you learn the courses, you can have some really exciting races, even if the AI of the computer controlled cars is a bit flawed. However, once I got Xbox Live, things got really good...
Amongst the options available in Xbox Live, you can select the 'skill' level of the people you want to race against. As a novice, you will race against people of a similar standard, and you can select higher levels as you improve. What I loved about this is that you soon get a group of players who 'grow up' together, and soon you'll all be racing at a really high standard. It's not hard to explain the attraction - When 8 of you are on the grid of the fast Moscow Track in your Enzo Ferraris, ready for the charge to the first corner, or as you slipstream someone on the final straight, and pip them to the finish, for a second it feels as if you are in a real Formula 1 race.
This is the must have title for the Xbox. Forget Halo 2, with it's Live players from America killing you as soon as you start. This is the best.

This game is still up their with the premier Xbox racers, a year after release, and now those nice people Micrsoft have let you folks out there have the game for under 20 notes.....
The game may not have the slick speed of the burnout series, or the addrenalin rush of almost throwing your car of a cliff in any number of rally titles, but what this game offers is a superb "pack race" through some of the largest cities in the world, underbrake your opponent, slip stream em down the straight and then, wallop, pass them on the corner, of course trading a little paint work on the way past.
You start the game with a limited garage, and then work the way through the game, having to earn the right to be able to drive the cars usually reserved for football players and pop stars. There are over 100 tracks and cars on the game, making sure it will take you more than 5 mins to obtain them all. The single player is all based round Kudos points which buy you better cars, these are earnt not only through winning races but driving with style, great overtaking manouvres, driving on the racing line at speed, etc etc
The multiplayer game adds another dimension, get your mates round and cut em up in all from Mini coupes to top of the range porsches and any other car thats worth its salt.
Online, the game has a massive following and plays a lot slicker than any of its competitors - and there ae players of all levels on line to challenge and play against - with the option to down load even more content at a small price, it makes the game even better !!!
Overall a cracking game, well worth the small price

I bought this game when it first came out on the Xbox late last year. However, I sold my Xbox in the summer, but have since brought a new Crystal one. One of the first games I brought again was this. And it's still stunning.
The single player will easily last you 30 hours, and then some. There's the Kudos World Series, Arcade Racing (Time Challenge, Cone Challenge and Street Race) and then you've got the Circuit Challenges and the Car Challenges. You're definitely not short of things to do if you're playing on your own.
Then we have the Xbox Live modes which are once again fantastic fun. You can easily lose yourself for a whole day online, just whizzing around beating the French. Kudos earned here also allow you to buy new cars, too.
Graphics and sound are something else. I'm still amazed at the quality of the graphics that Liverpool-based Bizarre Creations got into this game, even one year on. The sound of the engine and the effort put into the radio station system is also fantastic.
Now this is on the Classics label it can be had for a few pence short of £20, and you'd be silly not to buy it that price. This game is easily marked under 'essential' next to the likes of Halo and Ninja Gaiden. Don't miss this out of your collection, grab it at this fantastic price and sit happily knowing that it was made in this very country.
Fantastic to see we've still got such fantastic game-making talent in this country. Thank you, BC.

Project Gotham set the standard for racing sims at the launch of the X Box, just as halo did for FPS/Strategy. Prject Gothem 2 was the much anticipated sequal to the original which was hailed as one of the best racing sims of its generation. PGR2 raises the bar again by offering intense rapid racing through a variety of cities which are exact replicas of their actual locations. this game has loads of features which not only includes the ranking of KUDOS, but also time trials and car challenges. the game isnt hard to complete either. with different medals awarded for different achievments, its possible to complete for even the worst of drivers! the platinum medals though will keep you for hours tring to notch up those extra few MPH. where this game accells above the rest is in its online playability. the amount of hosts available on all circuits and abilities is phenomenal. so much to chose from, and now the developers have released extra cars and tracks for download!
this game is a classic, you would be foolish not too... i bought this game when it came out and i still go back to try and up my kudos.
you will not be disappointed (live player or not).
