  1. Special appearances by Benny Hill and a Quicy Jones soundtrack should help clinch the deal.
  2. The game looks nice, plays nice and is a blast if you can stand getting through the first few missions.
  3. The improved graphics, intense action and the Guy Richie-style crime story is what makes this game worth getting your hands behind its wheels.
  4. The mission objectives are challenging but not frustrating enough to make you want to give up on the game. However, what's really lacking here is the AI and the lackluster visuals.
  5. 60
    The light charms of the game makes it nearly irresistible, but if you want on this Job, stick with the smaller horsepower (PSX) ride.
  6. 55
    The biggest issue I had is that basically all of the AI drivers show a complete lack of road smarts.
  7. SCI took just six months to publish a PC conversion of the generally ignored PS1 game based on the largely forgotten film. [Feb 2003, p.98]

    Good game, easy play. Easy to beat, and the other challenges not all that great, though. Even free drive mode can't really save this game.

The graphics are aweful, there numerous bugss & glitches and the whole game comes across very cheaply made. However, the story and gameplay are on the right lines. It's just badly programmed. Expand
