V8 Supercars Race Driver 2 Demo

Hey Guys,
I'm not sure whether this is the right forum or not, but since it's motorsport related. You can download a copy of the V8 Supercars Race Driver 2 Demo at http://www.ausgamers.com

Unfortunately you don't get to drive the BA Falcon, you have to drive in a VY commodore (And Skaifey's. Ahh the pain!). Needless to say that on the straight you don't have the power to keep up. (Maybe it was the deliberate crashes I did the the HRT commodore. Hmmm.)

It definately looks like it's gonna be a great game to get, Even better than RD1!

My Major gripe with it though, is the pitstops. It just is a black screen, with a similar setup to the last game. (Here's me hoping for a EA F1 sim style pitstop).

Anyway I recommend that you download it, if only to get used to the physics of the game, in preparation for it's release.

Re: V8 Supercars Race Driver 2 Demo

Hey wait... I was just reading over the cars in the game... are they really sticking in the GT-90? That car was ugly AND slow AND a heritage killer... WTF?

I reckon the GT-90 is a pretty good effort by Ford as a supercar. I don't think it's ugly but you're right I should have been as fast as they come.

That's a bit biased hey? The last car I wanna drive is a VY HRT, but Iím glad you can smack em' into the wall this time.

Re: V8 Supercars Race Driver 2 Demo

I didn't think too highly of the first game but this does look a lot more polished, too bad ps2 owners won't get a play for another 6 months or so...

At least PC have a version, I can have a look on that I guess. The Worst thing I must point out about this game is that Ambrose will have the number 4 on his car!!!

Re: V8 Supercars Race Driver 2 Demo

Can someone who has downloaded it take some screenshots and post them please?
The official ones so far have been of pretty bad quality.

Re: V8 Supercars Race Driver 2 Demo

The Demo is of 80% complete of the game so you maybe the ones on the codemasters site are better, if you still want some tell me and i'll take some

Re: V8 Supercars Race Driver 2 Demo

launched into the game at phillip island, looked realistic. so how does it go?
off the line i shoot down into turn 1 in my hrt (!) and manage to get into 3rd, with ambrose in the lead!

something not right there?


but, every corner after that, i generally made a fool of myself, overshot corners, tried to dive unsucessfully up the inside of people etc... . so as far as HRT goes, this simulation is as real as it gets!!!

btw i like it but sound is bad
