A solid contender in the competitive arena of comprehensive racing sims, Automobilista 2 puts the player behind the wheel of some of the world’s fastest cars, now featuring some of the most breathtaking visuals we’ve ever seen in any racing game. The revamped visuals have also opened the doors to a bigger game than before, including more cars and vehicles than in the game’s prequel.
Automobilista 2 has come a long way since its predecessor’s humble origins. While most of the game’s mechanics have received a noticeable upgrade, some veteran players might find some of the features they loved from the original game curiously missing.
One thing that veterans from the first game might notice as soon as they boot up the game is the vastly improved visual fidelity of Automobbilista 2 over its predecessor. Reiza Studios took realism one step further by including the same graphics engine found in Project Cars 2 in their sequel, and the results speak for themselves.
Car models and track geometry look amazing, and the overall stability has been improved as well. The result is a game that not only looks better than its prequel but also runs better and overall performs better as well.
The exciting world of international motorsports has never felt better than it does in Automobilista 2. The game features the same deep level of tuning and customization that the series is known for, but now it includes even more car models and makers than ever before.
Alongside super sports cars and Indy racers, Automobilista 2 includes a vast variety of eclectic vehicles like semis and unique machines from all over racing history. Motorsport fans will find that the sheer amount of content and care put into every aspect of Automobilista 2’s design speaks volumes about the love the developers have for all things racing.
Customization And Racers
One of the best aspects of the first Automobilista game was how open the engine was. This allowed modders to go crazy with the game, including new vehicles and tracks that the developers might have not included in the base game’s roster.
The inclusion of Project Cars 2’s engine might have made the game look much prettier, but it also somewhat limited the scope of Automobilista 2’s modding community. While this is not a fatal flaw in the game’s design, it might be a bit of a bummer for fans of the first game’s rich user-generated content community.
Despite this, there’s still more than enough content in Automobilista 2 for any kind of racing fan to enjoy. Things like the game’s immersive VR modes are ages ahead of what we’ve seen even in impressive AAA racers like Forza Horizon 5, and with the developers’ commitment to continually expand the game’s roster, it seems like this will be a game that racing fans will be talking about for quite a while.
And that’s just talking about the game’s single-player mode. After you get a feel for how to drive in Automobilista 2, a whole new world awaits you in the game’s intense multiplayer modes. In short, Automobilista 2 is the game that keeps on giving.
Automobilista 2 is a massive upgrade over its predecessor. While the modding tools will be missed, every other aspect of the game is a substantial step in the right direction for the franchise.
