It's a shame that more time wasn't spent on Gear.Club Unlimited 2 as there are a glimmer or two of hope amongst the horror. However, appalling loading times, terrible handling, and moronic computer AI all contribute to a racing game that rolls its way off the assembly line and straight into the scrapyard.

There are certainly some shadows that must be taken into account, like the lack of an online multiplayer mode, a subpar art or the limitations in a world that had the potential to be pretty much open. Still, we cannot deny that it remains as one of the most addictive driving games due to its structure and an overall improvement on the vehicles.The lack of a traditional online multiplayer mode.

Gear.Club Unlimited 2 evolves over the previous game firstly by making this game more consoley and less mobiley, but also by including more variety in almost every aspect of the proposal. Sadly, its driving model is far from perfect, and the game becomes bring before its ending but it's the best serious racing game on Switch.

While Gear.Club Unlimited 2 seems to have a bit more to offer compared to its first Nintendo Switch release, unfortunately it is still lacking in the excitement department that other racing games have.

Gear.Club Unlimited 2 has one major point in its favour, thanks to the dearth of racing simulations on the Nintendo Switch which makes this game one of its rare examples. Its origins on mobile devices are showing, though, and they become too big to overlook on a game which should be more advanced than that, especially when Gear.Club Unlimited 2 has a thorough career mode and an enjoyable multiplayer, but its long loading times, subpar audio environment and high price don't help.

Gear.Club 2 is a positive evolution of the first one, but a minor evolution. Not enough in any case so we can decide to move to this new version without any remorse. In addition, the technical problems encountered with the original game (driving 100% arcade, loading times) remains. Gear.Club 2 is therefore a game to advise because it is the only one in the category of "serious" racing games of the Nintendo Switch.

GCU2 doesn't stand a chance against its competitors, but it works for the Switch.

Rather than building on the solid foundations its predecessor set last year, Gear.Club Unlimited 2 slams into reverse gear and delivers racing gameplay that feels significantly more laggy and sluggish than the original. With no attempt made to cut its remaining mobile roots and more performance issues than a drunken West End actor, we just can't recommend dropping a whopping £54.99 on this unoptimised, clunky effort.

Overall, Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is pretty much a missed opportunity.

Gear.Club Unlimited 2 isn't a bad game by any means. Like its predecessor, it's a competent racing game on a console that has a racing sim drought, but I was just expecting a bit more. As a big fan of racing games, both sim and arcade, it's hard to recommend at full price. And if the developers intend on making a third entry in the franchise, I hope that they take a long look at how to innovate this series, rather than iterate it.

Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is a decent title that, though probably not satisfying hardcore simulation fans, will give casual racing fans a new type of racing game to enjoy on Switch.

Gear Club Unlimited 2 is an underwhelming follow-up to the first game.

Gear.Club Unlimited 2 can be entertaining, but it is a real mixed bag. For $59.99 it's missing some features and that extra level of polish I'd expect. I'd suggest trying to find the first game on sale to get a better idea if this full-priced sequel is for you. Perhaps the value will increase when Eden Games finishes it and implements online races. A patch to reduce the load times would also be advantageous.

A year's worth of patches and DLC has transformed Gear.Club Unlimited 2 into an improvement over its predecessor in some areas.

A huge improvement from the original Gear.Club Unlimited 2.

The Gear Club Unlimited series could be a top-level racer and dominate that scene on the Switch for years to come. But until they find a way to make it feel more than a large-scale mobile game, it’s impossible to recommend to anyone who isn’t desperate for a handheld racer not named Mario Kart.

Whilst it offers moments of enjoyment in between those pesky loading screens, the game's greatest strength is the lack of competition it faces from other racing sims on the platform. So, if Nintendo Switch is your only console and you happen to be a massive petrol head, then Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is worth considering. Everyone else should probably steer clear.

Surely the console can do much better than Drive.Club Unlimited 2. This is just unacceptable.

Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is a quick sequel that only marginally improves on its underwhelming predecessor. Any forward strides are largely undone by unresolved issues from last year and some new performance problems.

This game does not hide its modest aspirations at any time, but the truth is that it is quite fun and it is inevitable to run race after race to get as many credits as possible to try to improve your car or expand your fleet of racing cars. In addition, the amount of content it has ensures many hours of enjoyment on our Switch during our trips or sitting in front of our television.
