|Easter Island 2|
|Lap Length||4.3 miles|
Easter Island 2 takes place in the sunset with dune buggies. It is raced in the reverse direction of Easter Island 1. In this race, the player will encounter the small volcano which is now barrierless, making it possible to crash Out into molten lava.
This level features a secret fireball that allows the player to access Easter Island 7, the extra level of Easter Island. The fireball is found midway through the track between the ramp and S-turn. To retrieve it, the player must climb onto the ledge and over the red barriers.
This level concludes the buggy's presence in Easter Island, as they get replaced by Dakars in the next four levels. Easter Island 2 is also available in the modes Split-Screen and Head-To-Head, where it is renamed Easter Island A.
Easter Island 2 is significantly more challenging than most races. This is due to short track length and AI Baptiste's dominance, along with the absent barriers inside the volcano tunnel. Baptiste's lead will increase as the race progresses, so the player cannot spend too much time in bottom positions. However, driving too fast inside the tunnel can easily result in a Game Over.
Easter Island 2's difficulty would decrease significantly if the player is Baptiste, because Ahmed would be unable to replace him as a dominant leader. In this situation, AI Ivanov would mostly likely take over first place during the race. If the player continues to struggle, he or she can always attempt a Rampage inside the volcano. The remaining opponents can simply be pushed Out into the water, even after they've finished the race.
