Overall: WOW what a fun game to play!
It's like a bit of Project Gotham Racing, BloodWake, and MotorGP!!!
Highly reccommended for those who wants an addictive Arcade Fun type of play.
Gameplay: The gameplay is a very satisfying! If you like Project Gotham Racing, how would you feel adding a Turbo-Jet behind your car? If you like BloodWake, how would you feel adding more missiles and arsenals? If you like MotorGP, try adding a machine gun to the front and you get the idea. At first it was kinda difficult thinking it would be hard to reached all the primary and secondary obectives. But a little practice, I start to appreciate the arcade fun experience. Getting to do it over and over till you get it right. When you do, you get to unlock that level for Multiplayer which to me was a BIG fun factor. Controls are easy to master and I don't know what the gripe about using the A button twice to use Turbo. I mean, how hard is it to quickly tapping A twice? The levels are big and fun to explore. The story maybe a little bit cheesy, but hey, I am here to play and not watch a movie! The soundtrack Theme blended nice and so are the sound effects. Together, they make a very engaging experience. Fast & Furious!
My only gripe is that there are only 14 levels including the training level. Now if they expand it and makes it 50+ levels the multiplayers, man would this game put other racing games to SHAME!!!
Graphics: Visually its a good PS2 port. If you saw some other PS2 port like (Crash bandicoot), this ones blows it out of the water! Car model are beautiful. Quick turns makes skid marks everywhere. Oh I forgot my biggest complaint is how dark the screen is. This is unacceptable from a company quality control perspective. How can they let such a big mistake get through? It's such a easy option to add gamma adjustment as an option.
Even playing through the dark screen, I had a blast playing through the levels. In summary, graphics are good, just dark.
Audio: Can't complain here. All effects are well done especially turning up your 5.1 Dolby Digital s sounds authentic, The Peter Gunn theme sounds EXCITING!
Suggestions: Why is that that the Japanese games have so many levels and the US games are only a fraction of it? I know it's a lot of work to have 50+ level, but hey being #1 is never easy. You got the right stuff, just execute!
Again, thanks for a Fantastic Experience!
