When being released in 1999, Gran Turismo 2 received many good reviews from critics and users. Besides the familiar content, this game also owns many famous racing cars to enjoy (nearly 650 different cars). There are 36 car manufacturers that will appear in this game. We can mention some famous names such as BMW, Acura, Peugeot, Nissan …
Gran Turismo 2 has two game modes, Arcade and Simulation. In which, Arcade has two familiar game modes, one player and two players. In the one-player, you will enjoy three different game parts as Road Race, Rally, and Time Trial. In addition, each will be arranged in three challenging levels as Easy, Normal, and Difficult. Depending on the level that the player has chosen, the CPU’s tempo and reaction will vary. For example, the Normal level will provide moderate-tempo games, and the CPU will limit your contact on the track. However, the Difficult level will bring more intense races. The pace will take place at high speed, the CPU is ready to collide continuously with the player to win. In particular, Arcade mode allows players to choose many different cars to use. The racing system has different layers. For example, Class A will bring sports cars or Class B will bring high-performance racing cars.
Unlike the Arcade parts (which allows players to freely choose any vehicle to use), Simulation mode brings more complex requirements. In this mode, players have to play according to a challenging system. In addition, each will require the player to use a vehicle model appropriate to the requirements. Completing them will help you unlock new cars. Besides, this mode also allows players to compete in some special race tracks (unlocked to experience). A highlight is that it offers driving challenges at first view. Instead of playing with a third perspective (with a wider view), driving with a first view will challenge the player’s ability. In addition, the upper screen has a rearview mirror to observe the opponents moving in the back.
