    Repetitive, annonying sounds and completely unrealistic. The only reason it gets a 6 is because I, as a Ferrari F1 fan, like the cars incorporated. On the other hand, how can a Ferrari Enzo, a car that weighs over 2 tons when passing 186mph be a drift king?

    This arcade style game is sort of like Ridge Racer meets the original 16-bit Outrun. If you don't like drifting, Ferrari, or the original Outrun game, you won't really understand this.

If you don't like drifting, Ferrari, or the original Outrun game, you won't really understand this. The challenge of this game goes from boring to hard a little unevenly, but once it starts to get challenging you feel like its a game worth collecting. It has various game modes, cars to buy, and beautiful backgrounds. The music is really catchy and there are many tunes to unlock. The music is basically sonic the hedgehog or typical sega CD style. I'm not sure I'd recommend this game to a stranger, unless they already were familiar with Sega's past. It does have great music and its a good pick-me-up and play style game. Overall, Burnout and many other drivers will have more longevity for the player. Its not like there aren't enough PS2 racers. The current used cost on Ebay is a little high, but not outrageous. I'd recommend this more for Collectors and Sega fans. I will probably keep it for awhile. Its fun for awhile, and can get challenging if you stick with it. Expand

    this one is a traditional arcade racer and it lacks of deepness! i was really bored by this game. it looks good, its polished, but under the surface there is nothing really interesting here

  1. It’s unabashedly repetitive, cartoony and not as pretty as many would like, but it’s still the most beautiful journey yet. [Mar 2006, p.96]
  2. A handsome looking and crazily addictive arcade racer remake that's only limited by its overly faithful take on the '80's original. [Mar 2006, p.82]
  3. Fast, beautiful and perfectly playable. Embrace its simplicity and lose yourself in the ride of your life. Don't expect ANY realism though. [Apr 2006, p.56]
