Do you love cars? Do you love to drift those cars around sharp corners, tune them up with top of the line parts, and then brag about your prowess behind the wheel to all your rivals? Are you both fast and also furious... and too broke to pay full price for a new game? Maybe you should give Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift 2 a test drive.
But just what does TXRD2 bring to the tarmac? For starters, there's the new night and day mechanic in Conquest mode, where you race in sanctioned matches in the sun - hey, a street racing game that actually acknowledges daylight exists - as well as taking to the streets against your rivals as darkness falls. But the real heart and soul of Drift is its options.
Drift is all about customization. You race through the mountains of Japan to earn money and gain sponsorships so that you can upgrade your speedster from a stock clunker to a rubber burning, rival dusting dream machine. The tweaking ranges from the minute details like gear ratios and spring rates, to parts like tires and mufflers, and the cosmetic touches of new paint and stickers. There are so many aspects on your car to customize it will likely seem a little daunting to newbies. The trickiest thing is that, while you can select from a large variety of different rides, both new and old, you won’t reach the top ranks without some serious tweaking of your ride. All this tinkering and tweaking in the garage will directly affect the cars control on the road.
