What's it about?
CSR RACING 2: LEGENDS has a story about you working your way up through the ranks of local street racers. Players will select a vehicle and test their racing skills against opponents. Depending on how well they do, they'll earn money that can be used to purchase new vehicles, giving them another way to prove themselves to be the best racer around. They can also customize their vehicles, trying to get an edge over their competition.
Is it any good?
Thanks to overly simplistic, redundant gameplay, and other issues, this illegal street drag racing game is as much fun as getting a speeding ticket. In CSR Racing 2: Legends, you engage in a series of drag races against both computer-controlled opponents and other players. But unlike the real thing, drag racing in this game doesn't take much skill. You simply have to time it so you hit the gas when it's in the green to get a good start, and then again to shift up when you should. You can also hit the nitrous when you need a boost. But that's all there is to this, and once you get the timing down, it's not much of a challenge.
This is particularly true since winning races isn't as much about skill as it is about having a better car than your opponent, something you can easily do by playing a lot or, well, paying a lot. It also doesn't help that the game suffers from long load times and annoying, redundant music. All of which, if you'll forgive a pun as obvious as this game, is why CSR Racing 2: Legends is a real drag.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about driving safely. In CSR Racing 2: Legends, players have to break the law by speeding on city streets, but do you think, by not showing these cars getting into bad accidents, that it fails to show how dangerous these races can be?
Do you think it's a good idea to spend money on CSR Racing 2: Legends when you can just earn the cash you need by playing?
