  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. 83
    This control's like my cousin Rocko's deodorant. Sometimes it's on, sometimes it's not. [June 2002, p.67]
  5. A great mission-based driving game and has enough to offer gamers in actual gameplay and in its brilliant reproduction of the movie's premise and character.
  6. At ten bucks, it is worth buying for any PSX or PS2 owner that can overlook the weak graphics and appreciate the game’s sense of humor and tight, straight-forward game play.
  7. 75
    There's a lot of stuff to do. Not sure so much of it's fun after you've memorized the route, however.
  8. 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]
  9. Its madcap subject matter, good presentation, and friendly control scheme will appeal to many people.
  10. It’s not 'impossible' hard, just so unforgiving that it fails to be 'enjoyable' hard.
  11. Get used to the controls and level shortcuts and you should have no problem leaving the cops with their donuts and the Mafia alone with the fishes.
  12. The crime caper atmosphere really makes it fun! [June 2002, p.40]
  13. The controls take some getting used to, and the graphics aren’t superb, but the game is fun to play.
  14. 60
    Hard to digest. The visuals are strictly low-budget with splotchy, blocky graphics.
  15. A great PS game, along the lines of "Driver," only more, shall we say, international. [June 2002, p.63]
