Ford Racing 2 doesn’t bring as much to the table as some other racing games on the market but at the $19.99 suggested retail price it gives you a lot of bang for your buck. It might not have hundreds or cars to choose from and doesn’t offer the tuning options that have become standard in a lot of racing games lately. But, what is does offer is good clean racing fun at and affordable price. It would have been nice if Gotham Games would have given a little more background on the vehicles to really showcase the Ford Motor Company, since it is a Ford only racing game. But I guess if you really want to know more about Ford and their products you can go to www.Ford.com. Besides that I feel that Ford Racing 2 is a solid racing game that is worth checking out especially for the price. So, if you haven’t looked at Ford Racing 2 lately look again.
This is a fun little game that you'd be mad to miss for under a tenner. It's no Gran Turismo, but with some attractive graphics and great variety in gameplay modes, it's well worth a few of your beer vouchers. The split screen multiplayer is a bit of a giggle too. It's just a shame there are no UK vehicles such as the Capri, Cortina or a decent Cosworth.
Other than unlocking new cars, tracks, and race types, and the ability to post your best track times on Xbox Live, there’s obviously nothing else to do in Ford Racing 2. But it’s apparent that the game does serve one purpose. It’ll hold you off until better racers are released. Ford Racing 2 isn’t necessarily the worst racer ever put out, but if it wants to become a game that sets standards, it has a lot of work to do before that’ll happen.
Should you get Ford Racing 2 instead of Gran Turismo 3? No, probably not. If you have already played through your racing games and want something else or just have $10 to spare, give this a try. I’d say rent it but you’re better off just purchasing the game.
So does the game live up to the standard claimed? It is a good little title to own for the price which is £15.So no in my personal opinion it does not live up to the standard of the big guns but better than many other over priced Racing games which seem to be in abundance on the console format.
Graphical issues aside, the biggest problem that prevents Ford Racing 2 from being totally recommendable involves the amount of time you're able to spend with it. If you aren't a stranger to racing games, you'll be able to breeze through most races on your first try on the standard difficulty setting. However, there are so few races that you can finish the game in a dedicated afternoon sitting. The split-screen multiplayer can be fun for a few rounds with a competitive partner, and you can log onto Xbox Live from the game to compare lap times and other scores. Unfortunately, these don't do much to extend a relatively short-lived game. In the end, the game proves to be fun, especially for those with a soft spot in their hearts for classic American muscle cars.
Un titre qui a pour lui des graphismes bien sympa et de nombreux challenges. Maintenant la concurrence étant ce qu'elle est sur Xbox, Ford Racing 2 aura un peu de mal à se faire un nom. Ceci dit le jeu a bien évolué depuis le premier et malgré un manque de sensations durant les courses on s'amuse quand même en s'essayant à ce soft.
When FR2 finally does get its groove on, it has a few moments of some mildly exciting racing, but these were far and few between. The arcadey physics and simple tracks make for a pretty bland experience. There are some interesting challenges with the racing line and the general game engine is decently executed with some arcadey physics and yet it still is not remotely enough. You're better off playing another racing title and imagining that they cars all have blue Ford logos on them.
Unless you are an employee of the Ford Motor Company or have a passion for driving a Ford this game offers little. For those wanting realism, go and buy Gran Tursimo. At £20 however, Empire understand that this isn't going to be the bees' knees, but for those wanting to have some fun, there are plenty of games out there that offer a lot more than driving a Monedo through a series of check points- like Empire's own Starsky and Hutch for a start.
