Moto Racer 2 pulled from GOG over copy protection issues

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 21 January 2011 10:33 GMT


Online retailer GOG has confirmed that Moto Racer 2 is now no longer available on the store thanks to some legacy “copy protection” elements.

“Despite GOG’s prerelease testing process, it’s apparent that Moto Racer 2 has some serious gameplay issues due to the remains of copy protection left over from back in the day,” said the store in a note.

The retailer added: “Since we’re not happy with the quality of the title, we’re have taken it off the list of active sales for now while we work on it.

“Once we get the game working–whenever that is–we’ll put the game up for active sale again and post an announcement so that you guys know to redownload the new version of the game.”

If you’ve already bought the game and want to download it, you can. If you’re not happy with the title as it is, GOG’s giving you a free $5.99 voucher to spend on the service as you will.

The Delphine-developed Moto Racer 2 originally released in 1998.
