  1. Both the graphics and the driving model are spot-on, but the game is also full of great new ideas, like a time of day setting that corresponds to the internal clock of the Dreamcast, a fictitious car stereo that lets you "make your own CDs" and a brilliant point system.
  2. The combination of incredible graphics, outstanding control, flawless sound, and the groud-breaking Kudos system make this one the kind of game that will thrill racing veterans while converting new fanatics by the carload.
  3. Pick this game up today and you'll still be playing it months from now, without ever once feeling bored. How many games can you say that about?
  4. Visually MSR is second to none with highly detailed environments...Likewise, the AI can be bullish at times, but with cunning driving you can beat them at their own game.
  5. But I cannot help but note that with the length of the development time why were there some faults with the game? Regardless, with detailed graphics and an innovative scoring system, MSR earns the Joystick up.
  6. 80
    What MSR fails to do is generate any real adrenalin rush.
  7. One of those games that coulda, woulda, shoulda, but didn't. It introduces some great ideas and lets them fall flat.

    I had the chance to play the game back in 2000. It was mindblowing. All the cities, the details, the music. A very arcade game, very challenging. This game paved the way for Microsoft and the PGR franchise.

    Sadly it wasn't enough to save the Sega Dreamcast !
