Smuggler's Run 2: Hostile Territory is Rockstar's sequel to one of the first games released for the PlayStation 2. Like its predecessor, Smuggler's Run 2 takes some elements from the racing genre and some of its style from car combat. The resulting gameplay is something like Crazy Taxi set in the third world with guns.
In Smuggler's Run 2, you take on the role of a smuggler working for a mysterious and wealthy benefactor. The storyline, full of twists, turns and double crosses, is presented in full-motion video clips. Parents take note: the protagonists refuse to smuggle drugs, so you can rest safe in the knowledge that they're only trafficking in things like guns and explosives.
There are over 30 different missions to conquer, ranging from simple tasks like following your partner through rough hills and deep valleys, to more difficult stages that require several pick ups and drop offs, all the while fighting with other smugglers for your precious cargo.
Throughout the game, players have to deal with the law. Toward the beginning, they are little more than a nuisance, but as the game progresses they'll do everything they can to smash into your vehicle and cause it to explode. To counter this threat, players have a host of different vehicles to choose from that are unlocked over the course of the game.
If players want to simply race, they can do so by choosing to go through a checkpoint race right from the menu. Smuggler's Run 2 also includes three different multiplayer games: Crooks and Smugglers, Loot Grab, and Bomb Tag. You can also Joyride in levels, riding in an area for as long as you like. ~ Jon Thompson, All Game Guide
