    This is where you come in... as one of his drivers, you'll have to
    master 14 vehicles, including flashy sports cars and the legendary Mini Cooper, as you screech down sewers, roar over rooftops and tear through the Alps, with the Mob and the law hot on your heels. Expand

  1. It's the first must-own PS one game for the PS2-only chaps. And that's a real coup. [June 2002, p.102]
  2. Quirky, fun and appropriately-priced.
  3. Rockstar could easily sell this game for full price, and it would still be well worth buying. [June 2002, p.120]
  4. If the words "noonday underground" mean anything to you, or you don't know who Tanner is, then The Italian Job is definitely just for you. [July 2002, p.89]
  5. Its madcap subject matter, good presentation, and friendly control scheme will appeal to many people.
  6. It’s not 'impossible' hard, just so unforgiving that it fails to be 'enjoyable' hard.
  7. A great PS game, along the lines of "Driver," only more, shall we say, international. [June 2002, p.63]
