Fast-paced and fun arcade racer
Arcade racing fans are in for a treat with Moto Racer 2, a sequel which builds on all that made the first game great, and then adds to it to make things even better. While it rarely tries to achieve the heights of realism, it is this sense of fun which makes it so successful and it remains a nice little arcade racer. The sequel brings in all new tracks, 32 in total, and lets players choose from 16 bikes to live their fantasies of high-speed and reckless biking. Graphics here are still pretty good actually, and the wide range of courses and environments make races constantly entertaining with high replay value. Controls too are straightforward and responsive, making riding as fun as it should be, but it is the sense of speed which really counts in any arcade racer, and luckily Moto Racer 2 doesn't disappoint in this respect. Everything zips by at an impressive pace, while the cockpit view really throws players into the heart of the racing. Add in multi-player split-screen action and a level editor so you can design your own testing tracks and you have a great all-round driving package. If you're looking for similar fast-paced driving action, then check out Motocross Madness and its sequel.
