This was not what I expected. I had noticed that Gamefly did not have this; London Taxi, British Motor Racing, Kawasaki Quad Bikes, Kawasaki Jet Ski, Kids Basketball, Kids Hockey, and Kids Soccer so I asked them if they could carry them and they did (realy fast to).

Anyway; I am going to try the others but this one you can skip. The AI destroys you from the start by turning your rig around. They want you to get the extra dollar signs but they are placed where you can't get them and if you do you can't back up. The controls are good but can get lose and the graphics are passible. Just AVOID it and try the others.

It looks like a simple Wii racing game. It controls like a simple Wii racing game. But there are things in Rig Racer 2 I don't want to see in a simple Wii Racing game, notably the "win and unlock" feature.
The developers lock all of the tracks except for one (I'll call it Track One.) Then, they force me to race until I win a Single Player match on Track One, and that will unlock Track Two.
Then I have to race Track Two until I win an Single Player race to unlock Track Three and so on.
Problem is, I get the worst performing rig of the bunch, the controls are bad, and the AI drives their rigs like they're bumper cars.
This makes it very hard to win a race. I ended up racing Track Two more than a dozen times and even with better performing rigs, I still can't win that race.
Adding to the lack of enjoyment is the bad graphics. The rigs look terrible and the tracks look bland.
