Excerpt: Codemasters has really outdone themselves with the newest installment in the TOCA racing series, TOCA Race Driver 2. Many great and not so great racing titles have been released within the last few years, but none contained the excitement of this title. Instead of just racing cars, Codemasters added a story line to guide you through the available racing scenarios including Super Trucks, Stock Cars, Rally, and of course Performance Vehicles.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If you're done with Project Gotham Racing 2 and you're in the market for another driving game, TOCA Race Driver 2 might be just what you're looking for. While no part of the game revolutionizes the genre, for the most part everything is neatly taken care of. There's some sloppy gameplay here and there, but with the panoply of racing styles on offer that's inevitable.
Conclusion: It can't be easy to come in at second place year after year as the PES franchise has done since EA Sports' upped their game, but Konami hasn't taken it lying down. New features have been added to the roster and the core gameplay has been tweaked and prodded into shape, leaving us with at least a worthy contender for cup glory this year.
Pros: Controls are slick and intuitive once mastered, Online Master League could devour your free time, Wide variety of game modes
Cons: Menu system needs serious streamlining, Still too many unlicensed clubs
Conclusion: I'm going to quit my list of gripes now as I've prattled on way too long. Reading back through it sounds like I don't rate TRD2 very highly - which is not the case - the game's problem is that although it attempts to supply racers with an incredible amount of variation, it really doesn't feel like it due to the floatyness of the handling and the lack of feedback from the joypad.
Pros: Plenty of cars and tracks., The best solo racing on Xbox., Slick frame rate., Xbox Live racing!
Cons: The career mode is a confused, simplistic and rather silly mess., The cut scenes are nicely done, but the story is banal and ultimately pointless., The Xbox live racing simply isn't as good as PGR2's.
Conclusion: Lowdown Toca 2 is one racing game that shouldn't be overlooked by racing fans! Codemasters brilliantly steps forward in the future of console racing. Beware casual fans the difficulty is higher than the average racer. So if your one who likes a challenge, here it is!
Conclusion: 16 /20 Au final, TOCA 2 reste un excellent jeu de caisses, bien qu’il souffre d’une réalisation qui aurait pu être encore meilleure, PGR 2 étant passé par là en marquant les esprits. On soulignera quand même que le titre de Codemasters ne cheche pas à jouer sur les mêmes plate-bandes et reste sur Xbox le must de la course sur circuit.
Pros: Modèle physique impeccable, Excellente jouabilité, Bonne durée de vie offline, Que des véhicules prestigieux, Très bonne IA
Cons: Pourrait être plus beau, Encore du lag, La triche sur le Live
