When you get right down to it, 4x4 EVO 2 is another pretty solid racing game. And while it isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's really, really like the first game with some additions and not much change to the look or the feel. I'm not going to discount it, however, as games like NHL and Madden come out with new iterations that are virtually the same as well, but with new players. So if you think of it in that respect, it's a hoot. Those that really enjoyed the first game will undoubtedly find this one to their liking, but enough to spend over 40 bucks on? So the answer to the question at the beginning of the article will have to be that your own wallet will have to decide that. It's definitely a good game, but maybe not worth the bucks if you're strapped for cash and already have the first one.
