The Game That Revolutionized the Racing Genre.
The successor to the international award-winning racing simulation GTR accurately represents the challenges of Motorsport racing. The detailed, photo-realistic depiction of these powerful cars and beautiful circuits, thanks to the graphics technology, and the enhanced driving model will make your adrenaline rise in one of more than one hundred HP-beasts.
Beginners can start with the driving school where they are taught the basics of race driving by a professional instructor. Thanks to dynamic day, night and weather changes and an impressive damage system, the races of the exciting FIA GT series become a thrilling gaming experience.
Since the release of GTR2 in September 2006, the game has received widespread acclaim. GTR2 simulates the 2003 and 2004 FIA GT Championship racing series.
Realism has been redefined: Authentic physics, dynamic day and weather changes as well as an impressive damage model
Great variety: Grand touring cars reproduced down to the last detail including all vehicles of the GT and NGT classes and the 24H races from two FIA GT seasons
Original circuits: 34 different track variations
Tough competition: Human-like AI opponents
Scalable levels: 3 different game modes (Novice, Semi-Pro and Simulation)
Great fun: 6 game events (Open practice, Race weekend, – Championships, Time trials, 24 Hour Races, Driving school)
International competition: Fully integrated multiplayer mode for racing against other human drivers from all over the world.

This sim, among others, is an amazing one and I love it! Firstly, the gameplay, the driving is incredible. The races are amazing and keep you on your toes for anything that the course might throw at you. So be ready, also the driver will be very well done and you'll have to power through and push them back. This game is pretty hard and it takes some time to master. But once you do that, you'll have a blast! I think this game deserves a more bigger audience and could be huge. A bit underrated but it's great! Recommend to people into huge, hardcore racing games with very, very memorable tracks, cars, and many other details in it!
This is one of the most fairly challenging racing games out there. It wallows in its hyper-realistic controls and tight controls. Making every mistake you make your fault. It's designed to challenge and punish, but it's super rewarding and almost addicting when you get good at it. I'm not good enough to get very far, but it's amazing for anyone that's willing to put in the time.
The driver doesn't pick the sim, the sim picks the driver. GTR2 is just something else, it just doesn't want to age, it doesn't want to die, its like that grandfather which refuses to retire. This was state of the art back when it came out and it improved on GTR 1 in practically everything, also the mod community had a lot of fun with this game and it certainly went places and there was a lot of fun to be had with this leading to countless hours of fun. The graphics may not be the best but sometimes that doesn't really matter, the only issue that I have with it is that you have to get some external mods in order to get it to work with a modern wheel and also the track quality is pretty bad because back in the day technology for making these tracks wasn't as good.
Everything from the sounds of the tires on the pavement to the switches on the dashes are perfectly realistic in this game. The cars handle like they would in real life and the racing is exciting! Graphics are very beautiful too. The racing is fun as is just tooling around in the cars doing donuts and listening to the engines rev to redline. Everything in this game is perfectly executed. Very highly recommend this to anyone who likes cars or racing.
On the face of it, this racing game may just seem like any other - but it's far from it. I am sure that there are many people out there playing run-of-the-mill "arcade" racing games such as GRID (which although impressive is far from realistic), who are craving more realism. Well to those people, I welcome them to the world of sim racing. GTR2 by Simbin is one of the many titles based on the gMotor 2 engine. It may be outdated now, but it is a trusted physics engine which creates very realistic physics. The gMotor 2 engine is perhaps best known for powering rFactor, and it's highly expensive, industry-standard brother rFactor Pro. And when I say industry standard, I am referring to the Formula 1 industry - many F1 teams employ rFactor Pro to run their simulators. This may sound like a review promoting rFactor rather than GTR2, however there are several problems with rFactor. Most importantly, it was designed to rely on the modding community for content, which is great except for the fact that sifting through all the rubbish to find the diamonds is a massive pain. The AI is also not very good, a problem which tends to be even worse with the community made content. GTR2, on the other hand, has fantastic default content. The GT cars feel great to drive, realistic yet approachable. Even more importantly, GTR2 still has modding capabilities, so there is community content out there if you want to diversify. Perhaps most significantly, Simbin have authorised the creation of the Power & Glory mod, which adds many historic cars from GT Legends (another Simbin game) and others created by modders to GTR2. This mod previously required a copy of GT Legends to install it (due to the use of cars from the game), but now everyone is free to use it. GTR2's AI is much better too, and it can be a great challenge set to the right level. There are also several features completely non-existant in many other sims, such as a driving school to help new and experienced racers alike improve, as well as the ability to save mid-race, especially helpful for those wishing to tackle a 24 hour race at home, but not all in one go. There are however a few drawbacks. Like rFactor, there is no changeable weather system (however there is a community made solution which I have not tried but some may), and the graphics are outdated in all aspects - although this does mean it will run smoothly on older or lower-end systems at high framerates. Perhaps most significantly, a wheel and pedal set is really required to properly enjoy the sim, something which is far more expensive than the game itself, however a good quality set such is really an investment to be used with other sims as well. GTR2 may be outdated graphically, but nowadays it is a bargain that cannot be missed for those wishing to start sim racing.
