    This is a suprisingly good grand theft auto style driving game. I picked it up for 8 bucks at sams club after reading a few reviews for it. It does have horrible graphics but the gameplay makes up for it and its humor is actually pretty amusing. Well worth 8 bucks anyday (but hey, they could have sold me a coaster for 8 bucks and it still would have been a good deal, assuming it was a This is a suprisingly good grand theft auto style driving game.

That may sound odd considering the criminal theme, but this game is a straightforward driver, with the player charged to complete specific missions within a specified period of time. Then there are the mini-games ... Although the sound is pleasant enough, the graphics leave much to be desired. I don't think that I am jaded by the beauty of the 128-bit games; "The Italian Job" looks like it came off a 32-bit system, at best. Finally, after putting in about three hours of play time, I tried to save my progress -- but I kept being told that the memory card in my PS2 was unrecognizable. My rating gives the benefit of the doubt to the game, presuming that this was just a temporary glitch in my system. Expand

    Rockstar could easily sell this game for full price, and it would still be well worth buying. [June 2002, p.120]
