Gran Turismo 2 is a racing game developed by Polyphony Digital and released in 1999. The game consists of 650 cars for players to choose and includes 27 different tracks. In the game, you will choose the tournament in which you participate. Each tournament has a different difficulty level. Players will use existing racing cars or design a car to compete with virtual characters in the races. In the early stages of the race, the player can use Turbo to drive the car to achieve the highest speed. In races, players can also use energy items collected on the track to allow your vehicle to move more flexibly.
On the track, there will be power-ups. Players will collect and use it to gain an advantage compared to other riders. Support items are divided into 4 categories: Projectile, Hazard, Shield, and Turbo. Players can collect up to three power boosters, increasing the ability to correspond to that power. The HUD system of the game will display the player’s position, the number of laps, the time and support items that the player has collected.
When choosing the track, players will receive advice on how to design the vehicle to suit the conditions to participate in the race. At each race, you will have to make a qualifying lap to divide the starting position in the main race. In the qualifying race, players will have to complete a lap as quickly as possible to choose the highest starting position to take advantage of other riders. If the player skips the qualifying lap, then he will start at the last position. You will not be able to join the race when your vehicle is not eligible. You will have to upgrade your vehicle by buying more expensive accessories to fit in your car so that your car is eligible for the next race. If you don’t have enough money to buy car accessories, then you will have to do extra races to make money.
For each race, your finishing position determines the score you receive. The six fastest finishers will be added to 9, 6, 4, 3, 2 and 1 respectively. The first person to finish the game will get 9 points and the 6th person will get 1 point.
Players will be rewarded with an amount depending on their position rolling destination. You will win if you complete all races with the highest total score. When you win a tournament, you will be rewarded with a sum of money depending on the difficulty of the tournament you join.
