  • Summary: Inspired by the events of Universal Pictures' upcoming film, "The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift," this game immerses players in the underground world of drift racing. Set in a world related to, yet separate from, the movie, the game features a drift mechanic that makes drifting accessible to both beginning and veteran racing game drivers. Gameplay features revolutionary new systems like the Drift Indicator. Turn on the assists and feel like a pro, or turn them off and hone your drift skills. Focusing on the "next big thing" in underground street racing this video game utilizes Universal’s extensive sound library, an incredible context based camera code, a revolutionary context based rumble system that gives players the feeling of driving city streets at break neck speeds like no other. Immerse yourself in the world of the game. 10,000+ polygon model cars, cinematic camera angles straight from the movie, unique boss challenges, stunning visuals and an Advanced Rubber Band AI system. Tune your ride with a hundred licensed wheels, and over 500 body kits from real JDM companies. Tune your ride like never before from performance to appearance, and for the first time ever swap out your engine to truly push the limits of your vehicle. [Namco Bandai] Expand

  1. The sense of power and weight, combined with awesome drift controls and the aforementioned speed, mean you won't have to wait until you can buy faster cars to enjoy the game as it's meant to be enjoyed.
  2. The Fast and The Furious is by no means a bad game, but in a genre already flooded with countless racing titles it doesn’t really stand out or do anything new.
  3. F&F is fun, popcorn entertainment, exactly what it intended to be.
  4. The strongest features it offers are the robust customization and nice car models. There are better "underground" racers out there with comparable features (many of which can now be had for half this game's $40 price tag), and if you're a fan of the movies, the movies are what you should watch.

    The PS2 is still clearly still capable of impressing in the graphics department as games like Okami and God of War 2 have proved, TFatF by comparison looks like it's from a different generation entirely, one where blurry low detail was the norm.
  6. Deeply uninspiring. [Apr 2007, p.86]
  7. 40
    Only for the truly hardcore street racing fans. It's not a good enough racer to attract the wide base of casual videogame race fans, and we can't recommend more than a rental even for the die-hard gearheads.

    Physics are simply terrible, anyone has a concept about "what a tuned car should act like" will agree with me. I put some rating points to this game only for the tasty body kits and rims, these fantastic cars deserve a better platform. Expand
