Need for Speed returns to dirt racing again in this sequel to Need for Speed: V-Rally. The most significant differences are that the game now has a track editor, improved graphics, and new game modes. There are 84 tracks and the game supports Multi 1-4 players.
It features 16 different cars in three categories; World Rally Cars (Peugeot 206, Hyundai Coupe, Mitsubishi Lancer, Toyota Corolla, Subaru Impreza, Ford Focus, SEAT Córdoba, Škoda Octavia), 2L kit-cars (Peugeot 306, Citroën Xsara, SEAT Ibiza, Renault Megane, Vauxhall Astra) and 1.6L kit-cars (Citroën Saxo, Peugeot 106, Nissan Micra).
In the track editor the track is represented by a single line or ribbon. You can edit the curves and change the inclines or declines of each track piece. The only restriction is that trackpieces cannot overlap, so for example you cannot make an 8-shaped track. When playing the track, scenery is added procedurally depending on the curves and inclines and which country is selected. The 84 default tracks make use of the same engine.

Originally published in Europe by Infogrames as V-Rally 2
. Electronic Arts bought the rights to publish the PlayStation version in the U.S. and changed the name of the game to Need For Speed: V-Rally 2
To make matters even more confusing: Infogrames later released an improved Dreamcast version in the U.S. and named it Test Drive V-Rally.
