The game features 52 racing circuits including the world famous Laguna Seca, Surfers Paradise, Euro Speedway, Donington Park, Kyalami and Road America circuits. The PlayStation 2 edition of TOCA Race Driver 2 is constructed completely from the ground up by Codemasters' renowned TOCA development team. The game runs at a silky smooth 60 frames-per-second, and with up to an incredible 21 drivers on track at the same time, just trying to stay in contention can be challenge enough. With unique adaptive AI that changes to suit your level of racing expertise, the computer-controlled drivers are no pushover: they'll fight to hold their line, try to out-brake and out-manoeuvre you, and even carry grudges over from race to race! There's classic TOCA damage, too. Thanks to a hugely realistic damage engine and the most advanced physics ever seen in a racing game, get too cosy with another car or a trackside barrier and it could be back to the starting grid for you. And there are no fake 'resets' to miraculously restart you back on your way, "Race Over" means just that, but only for that race. The save system in TOCA Race Driver 2 saves after every event, so you'll only have to re-run that one race in order to progress. The new PlayStation 2 edition of TOCA Race Driver 2: The Ultimate Racing Simulator will launch this October, complete with online play functionality for up to 8 players.
