Before you know it, you're speeding through crowded streets, running red lights, terrorizing pedestrians, driving on sidewalks, and outrunning the cops. Race anywhere in New York and London and win the pink slips of opposing players. Collapse

  1. Falls closer to mediocrity than it does greatness. The basic gameplay is sound enough -– the screen scrolls very quickly and the controls are responsive, but after a few plays you'll notice that the cars all follow the same pattern and this is one of many flaws in the overall AI.
  2. A decent if not repetitve drive. [Mar 2002, p.137]
  3. There is no solid gameplay to back up what is, at the onset, a graphically engaging 2D engine, complete with special effects.
  4. Unless you stay within the given path, you're guaranteed to lose every race. [Feb 2002, p.66]
  5. Imagine a slow, confusing version of "Grand Theft Auto" minus the crime and the fun.
