  • Summary: Put the pedal to the metal in this no-holds-barred arcade racing game that will challenge even the most experienced virtual drivers. Max is a street racer who came to the Big City to see his girlfriend. But no sooner had they met than unknown men kidnapped her! Max goes underground and learns that criminals with ties to a local street racing club are responsible. With the help of his friend and fellow street racer ChaCha, Max sets out to rescue his girl. Race through detailed, winding city streets, participate in over-the-top racing events, and smash your way through outrageous traffic jams using an arsenal of adrenaline-powered devices. As you pull off stunts and obliterate opponents, the explosive action and stunning visual effects will rock your world! [Sony] Expand

    It's all been done better before. [Issue#194, p.103]

    At $8, little of the risk that comes with a retail product holds true here, and while I can't recommend it unequivocally, when approached almost like a B movie, Anarchy can be strangely fun.
  3. My opinion of Anarchy: Rush Hour was quite bleak until I took it online. That changed the game completely and I’ve upped my rating in consideration of that.
  4. Having said that, if you’ve played every other racer and are just gagging for more speed, you can’t go terribly wrong with Anarchy. Just be sure not to aim your expectations too high for a game that implements every other feature from every other racer to a slightly lesser degree.
  5. Anarchy: Rush Hour fails to entertain in almost every respect. Thank god for the inclusion of online multiplayer, because the campaign is a train wreck.

    The Graphics may have not been great, the game play may have been a little too unrealistic to warrant a £7 asking price and the game may have overall been flawed but memorable, but for a game on such a shoestring budget, the soundtrack was good and licensed, the maps were decent sized, and the game was overall frustrating but fun.
