  • Summary: L.A. Street Racing puts you in the seat of one of 10 stock import cars challenging you to seek out random street races at nighttime, earning parts and cars. You slowly mold your vehicle into a finely tuned racing machine, capable of taking anything on the streets, but it won't be easy. There are many other racers out there with these same aspirations, willing to do whatever it takes to get the checkered flag. The player can disassemble, repair, and upgrade their vehicle part by part. From bumpers to sway bars nearly every possible part that is found on an actual vehicle is not only present in L.A. Street Racer, but removable, damageable, and upgradeable. A detailed city resembles the feeling of Los Angeles, with diversified roadways, corners, and intersections that made the dynamic street races a possibility. [Groove Games] Expand

    An interesting, thrilling option. Hopefully, Groove and Invictus will get their act together, take the game back to the shop for an overhaul and re-release it as the full-fledged, non-budget title it deserves to be. Until then you need to ask yourself if you can live with the imperfections.
  2. A decent driving model is spoiled by uninspired, unbalanced features in this budget street racing game.
  3. It's all by-the-numbers stuff that gets old quickly, and the game's muddy graphics, slim single-player options, and comically mistranslated dialog certainly don't help. [Oct 2007, p.57]
