  1. This game is fun, addictive and fast-paced. It may not be entirely original, but it does hold its own in the world of PS driving sims.
  2. If you do a good job, you might even get a free donut or two.
  3. An entertaining, mission-based driver with hilarious commentary and fairly engrossing gameplay. This is definitely a sleeper hit for the aging PlayStation.
  4. It's unoriginal-original and very frustrating playing tedious mission after mission with little reward.
  5. I had high hopes for this game, and it's been pretty much exactly what I was expecting.
  6. The thing that makes this game so bad is that it could have been so good. Improve the graphics, touch-up the controls and fix the multiplayer mode and you'd have a decent game.

    Despite my instinct to reel from anything that has a TV or movie-license attached to it, World's Scariest Police Chases is not a bad game.
  8. Within the respective missions, computer cars often take the same route every time you chase them. Secondly, once you've completed the 20 missions, there's little else offered.
  9. WSPC’s physics make for distractingly wobbly, touchy handling, where oversteering due to jouncing shocks after the smallest of bumps is the norm.
  10. If you like that fast chasing styled racing type game, pick it up too. I like it!
  11. This game isn’t anything more than a drab "Destruction Derby" with added sirens and donuts. [Aug 2001, p.112]
  12. Nothing but a knock-off of every other mission-based car game out there, and a dull and frustrating one at that.
  13. The graphics are really chunky and the sound effects are, at best, unobtrusive. Still, you don't necessarily play a game like this for the graphics. You play it for the hyper-cheezy commentary from Retired Sheriff John Bunnell and the modest thrill of keeping the peace.
  14. The gameplay borrows heavily from Driver – so heavily that it winds up destroying the cop-like feel it tries to pull off.
  15. may not be the World's Worst Game, but it's still a waste of time on Thursday night. Man, why couldn't they have made "When Animals Attack" instead?
