Produced by Microids and Eden Games, Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is a GT-style racing game released globally for the Nintendo Switch. It’s the latest version of the Gear.Club game that became popular last year, releasing on December 4, 2018 just in time for Christmas. We got our hands on a copy to try and loved the game play and awesome array of vehicles available in-game.
There are more than 3,000 kilometers of raceways in the game, including nature parks, deserts, icy mountainsides, and more. Racing takes place as missions, championships, and challenges each with varying rewards to match. There are 250 races in all in the game.
Players progress through the game from the point of near-amateur, starting as just a test driver who’s suddenly thrust into a (relatively easy) race when a driver fails to show for the qualifying rounds. From humble MINI Cooper beginnings, the player can progress through races, vehicle upgrades, and performance shop enhancements. From paint customization to performance-oriented specialty upgrades, there’s a lot going on in the player’s shop.
Gear.Club Unlimited 2 has no fewer than 51 cars from 22 manufacturers. Hot rides like the Acura NSX, the Alfa Romeo 4C, the GTAMotor SpaniaGTA, Nissan GT-R Nismo, W-Motors Lykan Hypersport, and many others are found in the game. All with different driving styles, capabilities, and upgrade options. Drivers take these cars onto dry pavement, icy roads, and even sand. Each of those environments requires learning to adapt and become expert on the new surface in order to dominate.
This game is beyond fun, allows up to two players (plus online play), and uses standard Switch controllers. Players can form leagues, help one another win races, and work solo or together to progress in the game.
Gear.Club Unlimited 2 is in stores now.
