Rush 2, the sequel to San Francisco Rush, has left the city. The new cities to race in include Los Angeles, New York, Hawaii, Las Vegas, and more. You can even do some laps around Alcatraz.
Rush 2 is a very exciting game. The average speed of the cars is around 150 MPH. There are plenty of cars and courses to keep you busy for many hours. A circuit consists of 27 races, so plenty of time can be spent on this game. There are a lot of keys to collect, which unlock secrets, like the Midway office. That is a great course.
The music is surprisingly good. Techno and drum ‘n’ bass is the style of the soundtrack. The tracks don’t get on your nerves at all. It fits well while racing around cities at full speed. If you play for a long time, you might want to listen to your own CDs while you play.
The controls are basically the same as any other racing game. It’s nothing spectacular, but at least it’s average. The main problem is that there is no hand brake, but other than that, it is all good.
The graphics are the worst part of the game. They are the only part of the game that could be improved. The objects are dull and seem to blend with each other. Because of this, the track can be distorted. It looks as if fog is over the city.
This is one of the games I have played the most of in my life. There are over 10 cars that are fully customizable. Color, stripes, wheels, horns, and much more. It isn’t like street racing either, where rich kids have their parents buy them nice cars and useless accessories. It’s just flat-out fun. The stunt course will rack up the most hours. It is a big arena with tons of ramps, bumps, and inclined plains. The goal is to get as many points as you can by doing flips, rolls, and 2-wheelers. Even if you don’t like racing games, you need to play this. It’s kind of like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, but with a car. Imagine a toaster van doing 40 backflips through the air.
There is so much to do in Rush 2, you’ll need a lot of time to play it. I feel it is one of the best racing games out there. I strongly recommend it.
