    While it may not win any awards, it proves to be a fun and addictive game that should probably be included with the PS2. The missions are way cool, but difficult and frustrating at times. Nevertheless, a truly unique and 'naughty' experience...this game is severely under-rated

    This is the game that impressed me enough to buy a PS2 years ago. The graphics are dated but are very crisp and clean. The engine sounds are not great, however this game is not at all about your vehicles engine sounds and don't take from the game one bit. The sirens on the police vehicles are constantly going which can wear on the ears.....but it's necessary because they areThis is the game that impressed me enough to buy a PS2 years ago. The graphics are dated but are very crisp and clean. The engine sounds are not great, however this game is not at all about your vehicles engine sounds and don't take from the game one bit. The sirens on the police vehicles are constantly going which can wear on the ears.....but it's necessary because they are cops, and all cops have sirens. Anyway even though the graphics are not as detailed as later generation titles on PS2 it does not take away from the fun you have running across massive and very deep landscapes. It's a blast running from the police climbing extremely steep hills and plunging back down. Avoiding cops is fun, but trying to screw over your smuggling competition by stealing the contraband from them while you're both trying to avoid the cops is even more fun. It is truly a unique concept for a racing game. Much more fun than usual racing action games like Vigilante 8 or Twisted Metal. Expand

    I feel like SR is very underrated. While quite simple in concept, it's one of the most enjoyable driving games I've ever played. It's got many subtle and great little details that you can appreciate over time.

  1. It’s about time someone used an SUV for more than hauling brats to soccer practice.
  2. It is one of the “must have” launch titles. You won’t be disappointed.
  3. The gameplay is solid, the graphics are on par with the upper echelon of current games, and sound is very respectable.
