Project Gotham Racing 2 is a racing game for the Xbox and is the highly anticipated sequel to Project Gotham Racing from Bizarre Creations and Microsoft. It is the first game in the series to have online multiplayer for 8 players via Xbox Live.

Project Gotham Racing 2 is a game which encourages a combination of speed and style, which is represented through its Kudos points system where elaborate moves such as overtaking, drifting and power sliding will award players Kudos points which will advance their ranking and will allow the purchase of new cars. The game launched with races in exotic locations throughout the world from Barcelona to the famous motorsport track, Nürburgring.

Game Types

Kudos World Series

Players must compete in a series of races throughout the world in 14 categories beginning from the Compact Sport class and ending with the Ultimate class. The objective is to finish races in the top positions to win medals. Depending on difficulty level, players can achieve steel to platinum medals. Kudos World Series' modes include street races, one on one, cone challenges, hot lap, timed runs, overtake and speed camera.

Arcade Racing

There are 60 races and the game will provide you with the track, car and game mode. The races are evenly split by 20 street racing, timed runs and cone challenges events.

Quick Battles

Basically a racing game's version of a sport's game 'exhibition', the players can choose from most of the game's cars, and race on any of the courses. Custom Race is a single race against a CPU or human opponent, or alternatively, they can watch a CPU race, and can choose from Street Race, One on One and CPU Race.

Time Attack

The player must complete the course as fast as possible. The player can choose their car, city and race track though they must first be unlocked from Kudos World Series.

PGR2 had a strong online community with the community created game, Cat and Mouse. Played with 8 players, people would form teams of two, one player would be the cat; an upper level car and the other would be the mouse, normally a mini. The first player who is mouse to cross the finish line wins.


In the garage area of PGR2 there is a usable arcade machine that hosts the first appearance of Geometry Wars before it was made into a franchise.
