At first glance Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is a curious specimen. It's the second game in a series that started life as an Android/iOS game, Gear.Club - not the stuff retail releases are typically made of. And yet, after becoming one of the reference points for arcade racing on the Switch Gear.Club Unlimited 2 has stormed onto the PlayStation. With this Ultimate Edition, players get the original base game plus all the DLC that's been released for it since it first launched.
Gear.Club Unlimited 2 comes packed with a line-up of more than 50 licensed cars from 22 big-name manufacturers, mean AI and a host of options to tune and customise your vehicles. Players will take part in races across a variety of environments, from snowy mountains to desert roads to beautiful stretches of coast. They'll be able to work on and admire their rides in the garage and even create and manage their own club.While it strives for bucketloads of realism, however, it isn't going head to head with Gran Turismo and instead punts for a more pick-up-and-play style. You can still pick a race, customise your car and have crossed the finish line inside five minutes. It might be a million miles from Mario Kart, but it's not quite GT either.
