Lotus Turbo Challenge 2 is the second game in the Lotus arcade racing trilogy and was developed by Magnetic Fields and published by Gremlin Graphics in 1991 for the Amiga and Atari ST. The following year it was ported to Genesis and Acorn 32-Bit. It was followed by Lotus III: The Ultimate Challenge in 1992.
Lotus Turbo Challenge 2 takes up the mantle of the original and keeps with many of the features. The game is a street racing game and has the same third person perspective used in the first one. It also includes weather hazards, obstacles, and opponents. However, LTC2 makes a lot of changes including better graphics, opponents in new colors, racing against traffic flow, and the change from placing races to timed ones. While you do have opponents, your goal is not to finish first, but rather you need to hit certain checkpoints within a set amount of time in order to advance. Unfortunately, there are no vehicle choices and you only race in the Esprit during even number levels and the Elan SE in odd number levels. The tracks come in a range of environments ranging from snowy, to city, to mountainous. There is no soundtrack, you are simply treated to the ambient sounds of your vehicle as you race.
Lotus Turbo Challenge 2 was very well received upon release and offers a pure classic racing experience. With plenty of options to choose from you can fiddle around and set the game to your liking. You can also grab a friend and go head-to-head.
