  1. At the end of the day, I found myself coming back to this version of Wreckless (over the Xbox version) because it has more options and winds up being more fun (even though there’s still some frustration to cut through). I know I seem to be in a minority, but I still liked Wreckless.
  2. The story loses something in its translation from Japanese, but the game play is still crazy fun. [Feb 2003, p.155]
  3. You aren't going to get a lot of replay value out of it, but if you like things a little on the "quirky" side of gaming, at least give it a test drive.

    The fact is that there are games on both the PS2 and GameCube that easily outclass this one in everything it sets out to do.
  5. Without the gorgeous visuals to distract from its troublesome gameplay mechanics and simplistic mission objectives, Wreckless doesn't have much going for it.
  6. Whatever the mission, the same problems rear their ugly head. The gameplay is dire; you don’t even want to see what the second mission is, let alone get to the end. The graphics are atrociously bad -- perhaps the worst on the GameCube.

I thought it was new, but not really...fun...at all. This early next generation game is pretty good. Expand

    The missions in Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions are okay but they are pointless after you complete them with a gold star.

    Complete garbage, truly the worst game I've ever played. When I played I just about barfed all over my GameCube. Don't waste your Complete garbage, truly the worst game I've ever played. When I played I just about barfed all over my GameCube. Don't waste your time on this game instead pick up a game like The Wind Waker. Expand
