About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

"As ToCA Race Driver 2 has become a must-have for Xbox and PC racing fans, we're thrilled to bring this title to PlayStation 2 users," said Marc Bennett, North American President, Codemasters. "With head-to-head online play, stunning graphics and a huge variety of motorsports, we expect ToCA Race Driver 2 for PlayStation 2 to stack up well against other top racing titles this season."

Whether online or offline, players can compete in a multitude of motorsport events against a host of deadly rivals, all out to claim victory for themselves. In ToCA Race Driver 2, it's all about winning and there's no room for Sunday drivers on these circuits. Drivers must fulfill their team's objectives to earn a place in the next event; with each success, drivers will unlock more tracks, vehicles and competitions.

Plus players can take it online and compete in races with up to 8 players simultaneously. The game's online multiplayer modes lets players devise their own championship for others to join, or search specifically for the kind of competition they want; alternatively drivers can just jump straight into the racing action. Players can judge their skill using the global rating system, or maintain a Friends List of favorite competitors. Full voice support allows all 8 players to talk with each other at any time, with no restrictions.

With more than 50 global racing circuits, ToCA Race Driver 2 comes to PlayStation 2 with extra content including an additional circuit, Spain's Catalunya, and an enhanced Championship structure that allows for 99 additional car and track combinations. Drivers will start as professionals – there are no boring "tests" to take before playing the game – the first car is the awesome Ford GT!
