Overview

Originally released in Europe as N.I.C.E. 2, this sequel to Have A N.I.C.E. Day! gives players access to more than 40 cars and 24 tracks, each featuring multiple unique variations. The game includes two distinct styles of play, a fairly standard simulation racing experience and another arcade racing mode that includes light vehicular combat elements. This mode does not feature power ups in the traditional Mario Kart style, but rather gives the player a loadout of weapons to cycle through at their discretion.
 

Vehicles

Breakneck has a very unique selection of vehicles, many of which are modeled after real world cars such as the Porsche 911 and Ford Mustang. The game does not feature licensed cars. Players have access to anything from a small go-kart to a monster truck or large tour bus, though in the arcade mode, selection is limited to more comparably sized cars. In the straight racing mode, all types of vehicles can be on the track at once, creating a unique driving experience. The game features damage modeling for every vehicle, putting it ahead of the Gran Turismo series, and also includes multiple paint schemes for many cars.
 

Locations

Many of the track locations in the game, such as Corsica, are based on real-life places, though for the most part the tracks do not mirror any actual roads. Each track has a few unique options like a reverse mode, and most can be played in either the arcade or simulation mode.
