Where the game really shines is in the wicked four-player mode, which is a lot of fun, and very addictive. Each vehicle in the game handles differently, although don't expect strong realism here-- this is a furious action game that does not pretend to be a simulation. Unfortunately, the controls are *very* difficult to get a hang of: they are awkward, unintuitive, and not very responsive if you don't play the game with a joystick. This is the only glaring weakness in Return Fire 2 that makes this Top Dog shy of our Hall of Belated Fame induction. Still, once you get used to the control, you will be in for one of the most addictive and immersive multiplayer games ever made. Two thumbs up, way up!
