2 Car List & 2 Track List

Project Gotham Racing 2 (Usually abbreviated to PGR2) is a racing game for the Xbox. Developed by Bizarre Creations and published by Microsoft, PGR2 is the sequel to Project Gotham Racing(2001) and is the second title in the Project Gotham Racing series. In PGR, the game requires a combination of driving fast enough to meet the challenge set, and scoring enough Kudos points to advance. Kudos points are gained through the player's driving skills, such as power sliding around a corner at speed, or overtaking other drivers in the race. Kudos points are used to unlock new cars. The Kudos system, challenges set, available cars and the tracks around which players race were expanded greatly from the original. PGR2 supports Xbox Live and allows players to race against other people all around the world. However, Xbox Live did disconnect since 2010 for the Original Xbox. Additionally, the game features an in-game garage to play the cult-classic Geometry Wars. It also features an ingame showroom where players can actually test drive vehicles or exchange Kudos Tokens for it. PGR2 as of January 11 , 2013 is compatible with the Xbox 360 through a downloadable update.

Gameplay Edit

Single Player

There are three main parts to the single player game: Kudos World Series, Arcade Racing and Time Attack. In Kudos World Series the player has to complete a series of races in 14 different categories of vehicles. The player begins with just three cars in the Compact Sports Series and eventually can have access to 104 cars (120 cars after purchase of the downloadable content). Most cars can be bought in exchange for kudos tokens, although some can only be obtained by completing enough races at a high level.

In Arcade Racing there are 60 medals available, 20 each for street racing, timed runs and cone challenges. Each race is with a car and track that you must race in.

Time attack does not use kudos, where the purpose is for the player to try to get round the circuits as fast as possible. The player can either choose circuit or car challenges. In circuit challenge, the player can choose from a selection of up to 92 circuits and then choose any car to race in. In car challenge the player can choose from a selection of up to 104 cars and race on a predetermined circuit. In both styles circuits and cars may only be chosen if they have previously been unlocked in Kudos World Series or Arcade Racing. If you enter the showroom, you can view and test drive all cars on a test track. You can also race against a ghost car that got the record time. If you like the car and have enough kudos, you can exchange Kudos Tokens for it.

Quick Battles

I can't seem to know how to unlock all of the tracks in the quick battle section?, Can they be unlocked?, Its expert, go on any track with a pretty fast car, do a 15 lap race on very expert. Just before you cross the finish line on the first lap stop and let all the cars go past u. As the last one flys past push the pedal to the medal, drive over the finish line and get from 8th to 1st in 1 lap. Its like getting a special award. when u next go into ya tracks a new one should be unlocked. You probably just unlock all of the tracks that are in the Season/Event races. For instance, the oval track isn't on Quick Battle. No I don't think that there any other tracks that are only in quick battle, Also be sure to include the name of the track!

Below are the list of tracks available in this mode.

Challenges are divided into the following difficulties:

Steel (Novice)

This is for inexperienced players to the racing genre. Although it is very easy, as many expect the reward isn't very high and encourages the player to jump up the difficulty.

Bronze (Easy)

This is also best suited for beginners that just want to hop into a vehicle. It is more challenging than Steel and has a higher reward, but players with a love for racing games want to bring up the difficulty.


Silver(Medium) is best suited for players with moderate experience for racing games. The difficultly and reward is greater as compared to Steel and Bronze. On the other hand, if the player wants to they can bump up the difficulty.


Gold(Hard) is for more experienced players that are looking for a challenge. Although Gold is always seen as the most challenging difficulty with the greatest reward, there still is another difficulty that even challenges the very-experienced.


Platinum(Expert) is for very-experienced players who apparently have the highest-attention span to actually play the game multiple times just to receive the medal. This difficulty is the most challenging but also the most rewarding. Many agree that it is better to get all Platinum for Kudos World Series than Arcade Mode because it is actually less difficult (Remember in Arcade Mode players can't choose their own vehicle) and the player will be rewarded the TVR Cobra Speed 12.


Project Gotham Racing 2 offers the ability to play online against up to seven other players. You can choose the race type (Exhibition or Kudos), turn collisions on or off (only in Exhibition), set the city, route, laps, time of day, and weather, and restrict whichever car classes you want. The game will always show you real-time leader boards for each and every race. The online has been praised for being incredibly smooth and responsive, with no noticeable lag.
