Rig Racer 2 has the player driving massively heavy Super Trucks as they speed round racing circuits. The player must learn to control 5 tonnes of power cruising at a top speed of 160mph. Crashing 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 " controlling these mammoths of the racing world is not for the faint hearted!
Players are not allowed to leave the track for too long, or suffer penalties to their time. Damage taken from bad driving also costs time, but can be repaired for free by entering the pit lane.
