Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA
Reviewed by Steve
This is a game of fun and exploring. There are secret ramps for
getting airborn and they have many secrets to find all around the
levels to unlock secret cars such as the blazing-fast The Mountain
Dew Racer!!! And of course there are always cheats. They have
cheats for unlimited time for fun in the stunt track and they also
have a cheat for Super Speed which is a sweet for sending your
car into orbit in the Stunt track. This game is mainly about fun
and the racing isn't a piece of cake either. I rented it expecting
just to have fun and crash and things like that but I started to race
in the different modes and try to find the shortcuts to beat my
opponent to the end, sometimes I did but most of the time I didn't.
Graphics 7 out of 10
The graphics are a little better than last years Rush but not a whole
lot of improvements in this category. They really weren't that bad to
start with but some people complained about it. I think the graphics
are just a little better than average and definitely nothing to complain.
Sometimes the cars seem a tad boxy but it really isn't that bad. I
mean I couldn't stand Clayfighters graphics but these are pretty
good and definitely standable. But if you want great graphics check
out World Driver Championship. The game is a whole lot down more
down to earth compared to Rush 2 but the graphics are brilliant.
Music and Sound 8 out of 10
The Sounds are pretty good. Nice squeaking mice when you plow
them through with your car/van/bug. The tires sound pretty good.
The thing that made me give the game a 8 instead of a 6 is that the
music is great. The music is upbeat and if you like one of the songs
a lot you can play it while you race in the options section. Most of
the songs are great so I don't have to change them. The Music and
Sound isn't the main point of the game but it is pretty good.
Game Challenge 8 out of 10
Not too hard but not to easy.
Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10
This game is awesome. The whole point is to have fun and not get
frustrated and isn't that what video games are for? Well this game
meets its goal it is fun not too hard and the flips and jumps are
outrageous like on the Alcatraz jump onto and off the roof of the
jail This game is just more fun than most racing games and that's
the bottom line.
Rumble Pak 6 out of 10
This isn't that big of a deal. The rumble pak shakes at impact. Not
enough shaking going on but it is alright. Besides I usually have my
memory pak in instead anyway.
No frustrations are needed for this game. It is just pure Rush chaotic fun!!!
Replayability 10 out of 10
With the stunt track to entertain you, you wont get bored. Its fun to
see your car/van/bug go shooting its orbit and fall down blowing up in
a fiery mess. I definite buyer for people who like to have fun. I bought
it and I am still playing it today, five months later.
Game Value 9 out of 10

buy it too it is worth its weight in gold. Go ahead. BUY IT!!
Overall 9.9 out of 10
