It was one of the more compelling of the PlayStation 2 launch titles, but repetition plagued the game throughout and kept it from realizing its true potential.

Rockstar, understanding the cult following that quietly amassed, did the smart thing and decided to release a sequel, this time without the pressure of meeting a system launch, and a great sequel it is. Each group had a color-coded base. Like the first, this game starts off slow, walking you through short missions that are used mostly to introduce you to the vehicle physics and overall feel of the game.
The game is broken up into a number of missions, which can range from picking up contraband and delivering it to another location to ramming control towers to disable communications. Played through to the end. With immersive and quite addictive gameplay, enhanced game mechanics and beautiful graphic details. It seems to have lost some of the cartoony fun feeling and it's handling is great but has become harder to control your vehicle at speed. The fundamentals haven't changed enough to sway anyone unimpressed with the first game, but the consistent quality of this Angel Studios release should warrant a look from anyone in search of a driving game a little off the beaten path. For Smuggler's Run, you're thrust into any one of three vast outdoor environments with the primary goal of grabbing the stash and getting to your destination.

Smuggler's Run 2: Hostile Territory will instantly endear itself to fans of the original, as it is essentially a better-looking and more fun version of the original. The controls are also very solid. If you are damaged too much, your engine stalls; if the border patrol hit you once more when this happens, you are under arrest: you have to start again.

The fastest vehicle is not always the best choice depending on the mission. The graphics were great and the detail level was more than I expected. Ok so that was the most basic of the basic, and there is a timer, but even though obstacles became more, and opposing vehicles got introduced, and more glowing targets appeared it still felt very limited and bland. The barren terrain of the Mexican desert and the Canadian tundra found in the first game have been replaced with the brushy mountains of Chechnya and the thick jungles of Vietnam, which prove to be far more interesting backgrounds for your illegal activities.
Smugglers Run 2 is an excellent game as compared to the other same genres. I then had to deliver the contraband back to my base before they smashed into me.

Smuggler's Run 2 has better graphics, a more stylised interface and well produced cut sequences. A helicopter would drop contraband and both teams would attempt to acquire the contraband and get it back to base. The developers really did a good job of shining this game up.

I found that as I completed a mission, I was excited to see what was coming next. The controls are standard - no hidden surprises. When you start the game, you only have access to one vehicle but as you complete missions, more vehicles open up. Like the first game the player is a smuggler trying to deliver illegal cargo to destinations within 3 large maps in the game using several different types of vehicles to make deliveries in a given amount of time. So, not only are you racing against the clock in a number of missions, you are also avoiding the police. Where the first Smuggler's Run was little more than a collection of random missions, the sequel attempts to link the missions together with a plot in the form of full-motion video cutscenes that occur every couple of missions.

The missions themselves range from the basic smuggling operation, which involves moving your contraband from point A to point B, to customized versions of the checkpoint race, to completely original objectives like destroying a series of radar towers. Otherwise a lot of fun and a nice step up from a great original.
