Online

PGR2 had a strong online community with the community created game, Cat and Mouse. Played with 8 players, people would form teams of two, one player would be the cat; an upper level car and the other would be the mouse, normally a mini. The first player who is mouse to cross the finish line wins.

Trivia

In the garage area of PGR2 there is a usable arcade machine that hosts the first appearance of Geometry Wars before it was made into a franchise.
