Coming on like a hybrid of Death Race 2000 and one of the Mad Max films, Rock 'n' Roll Racing 2 offers interplanetary road rage at speeds up to 275 mph, on a total of twenty-four tracks across four worlds. Like, science fiction, man.
Once past the seemingly never-ending opening movie and needlessly picky game menu, this is a lot of fun. Before racing, you have to buy a car and choose who will drive it for you. Your choice of vehicle is limited at first-chaos points can be earned while racing-but you can get a basic car with a couple of weapon upgrades to start with. Different drivers have different characteristics, but all have one thing in common-they're a nasty looking bunch of reprobates.
Once on the road, you'll find yourself fending off your enemies coming at you from all angles with pincers and guided missiles, trying to blow you off the road. As you progress through the races, earning more chaos points, you're able to buy more weapons, possibly even a more powerful vehicle, to do the same to your opponents. All this to an industrial-lite soundtrack which is entirely suitable for this futuristic racer.
