Import Tuner Challenge is a highway racer that takes place onFor anyone who is a fan of the Tokyo Xtreme Racer games this one is a must buy. Import Tuner Challenge is a highway racer that takes place on the Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway, and does an excellent job at re-creating the actual Tokyo highway. The game looks great, with the graphics being a little out of date compared to newer games but still very good for a game that was released at Xbox360's launch.
    Players looking for something different and unique will find it with this game. Rather than racing to finish your laps in first you will have an 'SP' bar that diminishes when you either fall behind, hit walls or other vehicles, that alone makes this game one of a kind.
    With hundreds of rivals to race and 'wanderers' to challenge you will find hours of gameplay to enjoy.
    The customization in this game is also excellent and actually gives you a sense of personalization, far more than most games in the racer genre.
    The music is a little lame in this game when compared to the Tokyo Xtreme racer titles but does fit with the time period they were going for in this game.
    My only complaint with this game are the major lacking of vehicles you can customize. As in the Tokyo Xtreme Racer games the player was given a massive list of vehicles to choose from as the player beat rivals and unlocked more vehicles. Where as this game has 15 or so to choose from, somewhat limiting the player in that regard. However if you have never played a Tokyo Xtreme Racer game then this wont be a problem for you.
    Great game, awesome customization, addictive gameplay, real location, unique racer, not enough car selection. 8/10
