GTR 2

GTR 2
GTR2 is a sports car racing simulator developed under license by Blimey for SimBin intended for the x86 PC; and is a sequel to GTR. Since its release in September 2006, it has received widespread acclaim. The game simulates the 2003 and 2004 FIA GT Championship racing series. It also offers many different game modes - Championships, Single Races, Practice, 24hr Races, Time Trials and the Driving School. The Official Championships consist of the 2003 and 2004 FIA GT Championship series. However, unlike its predecessor, GTR2 offers smaller unlockable championships as well as the ability to create custom championships. Another major addition to the game series is the inclusion of a driving school. This teaches the user racing techniques, and allows the user to practice them, unlocking rewards in the process. The 24hr races demonstrate the new dynamic day and night cycles very well. The transition between day and night is seamless and steady, unlike in the original where the race had to be paused whilst the new time of day was loaded. The day and night cycles can also be experienced by changing the speed of which the time of day passes during a race weekend. Selections here can be accelerated up to 60 times its normal speed.

Advantages of GTR 2
  • Great day-to-night transition – the game features a unique time transition engine. It enables the game to run without having to be paused while the new time of day is being loaded. 24-hour racing in GTR 2 is almost as believable as the actual FIA GT races. The game also includes smooth smoke effects and tire-marks. However, these tire-marks often disappear after the first lap is completed.
  • Has minimum system requirement – GTR 2 can run on Windows 2000 which has DirectX 8.1 installed. The game only needs 1700 MB of hard disk space and requires a 64 MB video card RAM. The game can run on a single-core 1.8 GHz CPU, with 1024 MB of RAM.
  • Less resource use – considering the type of PCs that are available today, GTR 2 will only use about 300 MB of ram; which makes it almost as light as other applications such as MS Word and MS Excel.
Disadvantages of GTR 2
  • Have fewer cars - GTR 2 has fewer cars compared to its predecessor. GTR 2 only has 24 models. Considering that the game runs on PC; there should have been enough cars for the fans to choose from. Perhaps the game is made to run on slower PCs, system requirements are minimal. However, because of the minimum requirements, the total gameplay is not very appealing.
  • Poor sound – considering it as a PC game, there should have been good sound output and sound effects from the cars. The game only features mono, stereo, and headphone modes. Not to mention the high-quality sound that you can enjoy from other console-based games.

What makes GTR 2 a really good racing simulation game compared to others
GTR 2 is one of the games that closely simulate the FIA GT World Series. It also features the American Le Mans 24-hour racing with fluent and smoothly-animated day-to-night transition. Unlike its predecessor, the new GTR 2 has a graphics engine which is dedicated to rendering appropriate effects without having the game to be paused. GTR 2 also has a new feature called the driving school. Here, the driver is taught racing techniques – almost similar to Gran Turismo’s license series. However, GTR 2 has fewer cars compared to its previous version. This is not a disadvantage to the game; the current version’s time-rendering engine will surely satisfy any race fan who has anticipated the release of the GTR 2. Nonetheless, there are more than 27 models of car included, spanning all the classes involved in FIA GT racing. They range from 600 hp GT class, to 400 hp NGT class vehicles. With the ability to create your own content, many more vehicles have been created by the dedicated GTR2 community.
