World Racing 2 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: I think World Racing 2 tries to satisfy too many users, with the result being a lost identity. I like the fact that the car lineup was expanded, but unless you are in love with the specific models in this game, there are better places to get that “officially licensed” fix. The racing just isn’t innovative or special enough to compliment the car lineup, and the Career mode is just too bare bones.

  • Excerpt: Now that the the Xbox nears the end of its life cycle we can look back and somewhat safely judge some best of category games. For example Halo 2 as best FPS, an argument could be made for Morrowind as best RPG, and maybe a Madden game for sports. But what about racing? There have been some gems. Project Gotham Racing 2, Burnout, and Forza Motorsport come to mind. So with such great games as those is there a place in the Xbox legacy for World Racing 2? Let's see...

World Racing Review

GameSpot
8 April 2003
  • Summary: It's not a stunningly accurate sim, it doesn't provide the sort of overview of Mercedes-Benz cars that you'd expect, and its graphical presentation has more than a few flaws.
  • Pros: N/A

World Racing

  • Conclusion: World Racing is a bit of a strange one, Undeniably pretty to look at (stunning in places), expansive in scope and polished in presentation (apart from the confusing menus), it left me a bit cold. It may have been the sluggish and thrill-free way in which the first few cars handle (Gran Turismo veterans will be familiar with this syndrome) or possibly the confusing menus (although you do get the hang of them in the end), but it's one of those games that I found myself...
  • Pros: Loads of shiny Mercs., Huge landscapes with some lovely texturing., Smooth 4 player mode.
  • Cons: Nothing but Mercs., Underdeveloped offroad races., It takes a while to get your hands on the more interesting cars.

  • Conclusion: Das ist also der neue Teil von World Racing. Meine Erwartungen wurden mehr als nur erfüllt. Die Grafik ist ebenso wie der Sound klasse und die Steuerung gelungen. Einzig die KI stört mich ein wenig. Normalerweise passt sie sich an das Fahrverhalten des Spielers an, doch häufig schießt sie etwas darüber hinaus.

  • Conclusion: Trotzdem: Wer sich auf die Simulationsaspekte eines Rennspiels einlassen kann, und keinen allzu großen Wert auf aufwendige Präsentation zwischen den Rennen liegt, sollte unbedingt eine Testfahrt wagen. Selten zuvor vermittelte ein Spiel das Gefühl, in echten Fahrzeugen seine Runden zu drehen.

  • Conclusion: Vous comprenez bien qu’après avoir écrit tout ça, je ne vais pas vous conseiller de vous procurer World Racing 2 , peu importe la manière. Les développeurs ont une nouvelle fois raté le coche pour ce volet, mais ne dit-on pas « jamais deux sans trois » ? Je vous donne rendez-vous donc au prochain numéro.
  • Pros: La modélisation des rayures, Le clignotant !, Customisation de la plaque d'immatriculation
  • Cons: Voitures qui bondissent, Voitures qui ont la même vitesse, Ca n'a pas grand intérêt
