GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience puts the player behind the wheel of some of the most prestigious cars in the world, in a wonderfully authentic experience. This racing simulation game offers 67 different cars and 13 tracks, in single or multiplayer mode. With over 1400 events to participate in, of types such as Knockouts, Overtakes, and Duels, the enjoyment is practically never-ending. With slick driving skills and smart upgrades, the player can compete for winnings as impressive as a new car! The game is easy to play and does not contain any inappropriate content, which makes it great for players six and older.




Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

The demand for Focus in GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience cannot be underestimated. Driving, especially at high speeds, requires unwavering attention if you have any plans of living to the see the next race. The races in the game throw any number of hills, swerves, straightaways, and sharp right-angle turns at the player as they can. Looking away is never recommended, unless you don't mind crashing a beautiful car and falling behind in a competitive race. Keeping solid concentration on the cars around you, the number of laps left, any time remaining, and the upcoming twists or turns is the only way to stay ahead in this competition. Staying alert can be the difference between skillfully overtaking an opponent to coast across the finish line or getting sideswiped into the dust. Aside from Focus during the races, maintaining Focus between them is equally as important. The races can be tough and take multiple attempts to earn 1st place, so persisting in the face of failure is just as crucial to success. Through car upgrades and the skill that is naturally developed through time racing, the player will come to see himself as a champion that can win any race he buckles up for and focuses on. Without using such a skill, the player will find himself in more crash pile-ups than he prefers, and less 1st place trophies than he desired.


Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Just like in real life, changes in weather call for changes in driving (you don't want to drive as fast on wet, slippery ground as you do on dry, sticky pavement!). Furthermore, no race track is exactly the same as the next. Each has their own combination of treacherous right-angle turns, generous loops, solid straight-aways, or narrow passages. Choosing when to put the "pedal to the medal" versus when to drive slower and with more caution can make a huge impact on the player's position and success in the race. When faced with a lot of turns and windy roads, a more conservative strategy provides a better chance at making it out quicker and with less accidents.

Additionally, different types of races require different mindsets and strategies as well. For example, in the Overtake races, the player need only be concerned with passing each opponent until he is in first place - that's it! This type of race, therefore, is more centered on quick acceleration and optimal handling than perhaps a long-term, top speed sort of race. Different races might even call for different cars, depending on their abilities and specifications. In GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience, one size never fits all. Each race requires specific intentions and should use the best car available for the job. The player who can evaluate each race and pick the best car and best strategies suited to the task at hand will get to pleasure of waving his trophy at the finish line.
