  1. Bizarre neglected to focus on polishing MSR's overall driving experience. Not that MSR is a bad game, but there are at least a few other Dreamcast racers I would have to recommend before it. "Test Drive: Le Mans," anyone?
  2. A universe of drifiting and cornering, accelerating and power-steering, peppy music and decent graphics that, while worth a visit from time to time via a rental ticket price, it's too unrewarding and punishing a formula for the hardest of the hardcore to plow the cash for.
  3. 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, veryI 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 !
