  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. An entertaining, mission-based driver with hilarious commentary and fairly engrossing gameplay. This is definitely a sleeper hit for the aging PlayStation.
  3. I had high hopes for this game, and it's been pretty much exactly what I was expecting.
  4. WSPC’s physics make for distractingly wobbly, touchy handling, where oversteering due to jouncing shocks after the smallest of bumps is the norm.

    This game isn’t anything more than a drab "Destruction Derby" with added sirens and donuts. [Aug 2001, p.112]
  6. 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.
  7. 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?

    World's Scariest Police Chases, I liked the tv show (1997–2002) and I liked the game!

    The game lets you drive your car and shooting at criminals at the same time, it's a hard thing to pull of but once you succeed it's very satisfying.

    The narrating in WSPC is done by sheriff John Bunnell, just like in the tv show, which is a really nice touch.

    There's also a two player co-op mode where one player drives the car while the second player shoots at the bad guys. This game isn't easy, because slamming your police car into the criminal's car could end up in your car catching fire and it's end of the mission.

    World's Scariest Police Chases should definitely be remade for the PS3 or PS4, with better graphics but with the same true to the tv show gameplay.

    I rate this game 8 out of 10.
