Rig Racer 2 gives players the chance to drive huge and heavy Super Trucks as they speed round racing circuits. The player must learn to control five tonnes of power, cruising at a top speed of 160mph. Nudging into each other, slamming the barriers, or sliding over the sand and grass that line the circuit are all possibilities if the driver gets it wrong. Suffice to say that controlling these mammoths of the racing world is not for the faint-hearted!
Leave the track for too long and you will suffer penalties to your lap times. Damage taken from bad driving also costs time, but can be repaired for free by entering the pit lane…which in itself costs you valuable time. Thanks to the Wii Remote dictating they way in which the game is played, the driving experience is realistic, fast and very heavy, giving a noticeably different feel to other racing games.
