  1. SRS has a lot of good things going for it, including some solid comtrols and AI, a very good online mode with pink slips and all, and a very open ended racing system.
  2. Then again, its meant to be a fun racing game not a literary masterpiece so in that respect Street Racing Syndicate does succeed admirably.
  3. The sound effects for the cars are fine, and you can actually hear the effect that the different exhaust and exhaust upgrades have on each car. Whine about Electronic Arts all you want--at least they have the resources to put good soundtracks in their games.
  4. The game tries to deliver an authentic street racing experience, but the racing itself tends to be rather unexciting.
  5. Given everything the game has going for it, the thing that makes the meat of any racing game - the races - are a huge letdown.

    The races are boring...There's just no drama to the thing, and even once you've cranked your Mitsubishi crapbox up to 400 hp, you still don't feel the power. [Oct 2004, p.100]
  7. Sadly, this by-product of the world’s current obsession with illegal racing, ugly street cars being given garish makeovers by plebeians and all things neon or blacked out can do little to impact upon the success of other racers.
