Project Gotham Racing 2
One of the best
Xbox launch titles was Project Gotham Racing. It was loaded with great
gameplay and stunning visuals. It remains today as arguably the
best-looking racer ever, even better than Sony's stunning Gran Turismo
3: A-Spec. After having seen the game in play on G4 (the all-video game
channel) I guarantee the arguing will stop in November as to what the
best-looking racing game ever: Project Gotham Racing 2 (PGR2) will leave
every other racing game in a cloud of exhaust.
graphics aren't worth much if a game doesn't play well. With that in
mind, Microsoft is updating the gameplay of PGR2 by enhancing the game's
Kudos scoring system. But the ultimate coup de grace to all other racing
game competitors is PGR2's online play via Xbox Live.
