Despite the heavy emphasis on replayability, only the most die-hard fans of the original series will be happy to chase the same car over an identical track again and again for the meagre promise of TV stills and rehashed video clips.
But after two or three missions, you'll find the range of missions is incredibly small, the gameplay is overly simplistic, and the style of graphics and dialog to be more of an annoyance than a cult bonus. It should have been a coin-op game.
For the time being at least, my callous regard of film licenses remains justified. The cheap thrills on offer here are replicated with much more panache in titles such as "GTA: San Andreas" or "Driv3r." Steer clear.
