The key to an enjoyable racing game is often the skill of the computer-controlled drivers. Too good and they're frustrating, but too bad and they're no challenge. Cruising over the line isn't what we're here for - we want the thrilling, hard-fought dive to the finish.
VS. Racing 2 strikes that balance almost perfectly. Its brief, petrol-burning encounters almost always end with a desperate last-corner overtaking maneouvre that leads either to a famous victory or a horrendous crash.
The game offers a top-down perspective on the world of motor sport, and you can control the whole thing with a single finger. A steering wheel sits in the bottom-right corner of the screen, and you move your finger around it to steer.
A wonderfully entertaining, perfectly balanced arcade blast, VS. Racing 2 offers the sort of addictive racing everyone can enjoy
