  1. One of those games that coulda, woulda, shoulda, but didn't. It introduces some great ideas and lets them fall flat.
  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. 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?

    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 !
