Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA is a racing video game developed by Atari Games and published by Midway Games exclusively for the Nintendo 64 video game console. It was released on November 10, 1998 in North America, and February 4, 1999 in Europe. Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA is a sequel to San Francisco Rush and the second game in the Rush series.
The game is notable for the high level of detail in the recreations of the various cities and states used, and for its fast arcade-style physics. The game also features a two-player mode and rumble pack support. Hidden shortcuts and jumps add to the replay value of the game.
Cities used are New York (Uptown and Downtown), Hawaii, Las Vegas, San Francisco (Alcatraz), Los Angeles, and Seattle. Other tracks playable at the start of the game are Stunt, Crash, and Half-pipe. A bonus track can be won if a Circuit Championship is won. The player's car is miniaturized and you drive through the offices of Midway Games. Another bonus is the Full Pipe level, as the last achievement to unlock.
