    This is one of the best games I've played on the PS2.

    The cars are good, you can choose how you want to end a mission, and there are a few
    glitches which ruin the game a bit. Full Review »

    It is an improvement from the first one. Some may see these games as a game trying to be GTA. It is similar to Grand Theft Auto,but is different in a lot of ways.One big way is that you don't know how much life or ammo you have left and the cops actually try to catch you. The way the cars drive in this game are smoother than the first game.The story is very different from any other game I have played. The other ending isn't that different and the story doesn't change if you decide to get the other ending.It is a fun game to play even after you beat it because there are other modes you can do as racing,Being a taxi driver,and of course free roam.

    I think saying it's not improved at all from the first is totally wrong. It is improved though it still suffers from some flaws. It's like at time the developers just got really lazy after working really hard on making picadilly look just right. The additions of motorbikes is cool but they are so difficult to control you just don't bother using them. Not to mention that one level.. people who have played the game know which one I'm talking about.. is nearly impossible without a guide and the fact that the levels or chapters become so long when you're eddie that you can't save them until totally finishing them is stupid. I think the game looks great and I like how it's more realistic as a whole over something like GTA with real cars and brands etc. Despite its flaws I really enjoy the game and the story is good and engrossing at times. The fact is it's still better than most games you'll play, if the original is a 6 this one's an 8. Was looking forward to a PS3 release but I heard it's been scrapped so looks like this is the best fans or the series will get. Full Review »
