Expanding on the variety in TOCA Race Driver, TOCA Race Driver 2 will boast the most diverse range of powerful motor sports ever seen in one game. 35 of the world's most powerful big-name racing and street cars will feature in 31 championships covering 15 different motor racing styles including GT Sports Car Racing, Street Racing, Rally, DTM, V8 Supercars, Global GT Lights, Rally Cross, Formula Ford, Open Wheel Grand Prix, Classic Car Racing, Super Truck racing, Stockcar Oval Racing, Ice-Racing, Convertible Racing, and Performance Cars.
The promotional blurb for Codemasters' latest racing game, TOCA Race Driver 2, makes an awful lot out of the in-game cinematics, the wealth of game options and the fancy new damage engine. However, what is also crucial to the game's success is this: TOCA Race Driver 2 plays like a dream. It follows the narrative-based approach of its predecessor, as you become a genuine character in the game. That takes you from the early races where you attempt to make your name, through to the big championships where you then have to prove it. There are plenty of championships to take on, too, and as with the wide selection of vehicles waiting to be driven, these are gradually unlocked as you make progress.
Even in single-player mode, though, the races are genuinely immersive and wildly entertaining. Sure, the game punishes your mistakes, but that's as it should be, and it rarely leaves you at the point where you don't want to have another go after a winning position has gone horrendously wrong. Fortunately, the AI of the computer-controlled cars is pretty much spot on too--they make mistakes, they adopt different driving styles, and only on occasions betray their non-human status. Online, the game is even better. Twelve players at a time can compete and it's here where the TOCA Race Driver 2 is at its most exhilarating.
And then there are the production values. From the stunningly realised cars and courses, through to the tightly woven voiceovers and gloriously cinema-like action replays, it barely puts a foot wrong. Not only then is the game a joy to play, it's also a joy to look at. The only minor niggle is that those who bought the previous game may have wanted a little bit more from the sequel, but that's not likely to stop them enjoying it. TOCA Race Driver 2 is an action-packed, compulsive and long-lasting racing game that's very unlikely to disappoint. --Simon Brew

The vehicle handling is absolutely spot on and just what I expected although there isn't much difference between the types of racing. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing because you can go from one type of racing to the next without too much trouble.
One of the features that really helps this game and needs a mention is redefinable controls. Quite why more X-BOX games don't allow you to set up the controller exactly how you want it is a mystery to me, a big thumbs up to Codemasters for this.
Overall one the best racing games around, if not the best.
Buyit, take it on XBOX Live and sit back and enjoy.
Even if your not a bigfan of racing games you'll still love the variety of races and tracks toplay on, and the single player game is great for homing your skills. Italso has free race, time trial and multi-player modes for those withoutLIVE accounts.
Believe me when I say this could'nt get any better.
One of the best features of the game is the optional setup of the car in each class with the user able to customise suspension, tyres, gears (of which own ratios can be made), anti-roll bar along with front and rear wing settings + a lot more.
This is a game for any racing enthusiast (like myself) who wants a realistic, enthralling racing game. I have not tried a racing wheel with this game but plan to in the near future.
I really hope that this isn't the Ultimate Driving Simulator because if it is then other driving games must be terrible. This game is not better than Project Gotham Racing 2.
