Grand Prix 2

Grand Prix 2 is an abandoned Formula 1 racing game designed by Geoff Crammond and published by MicroProse Software in 1995 for DOS. Grand Prix 2 is the sequel to Formula One Grand Prix and was a one-man project (which was uncommon at the time). Grand Prix 2 was essentially an accurate simulation of the 1994 Formula 1 season.

Grand Prix 2 reviews

"GP2 does make compromises. As sophisticated as its' driving model is, mastering it still happens quicker than with Indicar - which may still be regarded as possessing superior dynamics. This will only displease retired racing drivers thought, the game has been geared for demanding gamers and if the upper 1% of perfectionists can still find fault, then their loss, the rest of us love it." - PC Powerplay

    The default key controls were locked onto "a" for accelerate, "z" for brake, "<" and ">" for steering and space for gear change. You couldn't change them though space would become pause when playing with a joystick.

    Dear AD,
    Well my remark was not against you but the game itself. Actually never had such trouble with GP V1 : arrows were running very smoothly.
    For example "The Need for Speed" and "Xenon II" (both from your site) manage the arrows under DOSbox without any trouble.
    If by chance you find (remember) the trick, let us know please.

    Thank anayway for all teh good stuff you provide us. "Keep up the good work, officer".

    @Gilles, I personally took the screenshots you see on this page, but I honestly can't remember how I managed to play... sorry!

    This game CANNOT be played (at least Under DOSBox 0.74 on a W7/64 machine : the game does NOT handle the Arrow keys of the keyboard and there is NO way to configure the keys Inside any possible menu of the game.
    Piece of s...., hem, garbage.
    You can drop and forget it.
