    Haven't played through it yet, but it seems right along the lines of every other TXR game, if you like them you will like this one, loads more customization and the cockpit view is nice too.

    i got it and it's playable but disappointing. graphics are ok but not pushing the hardware at all. music is crap and why can't you use custom soundtracks? duh, what's the harddrive for? controls are a little squishy but tolerable-seems like the rear end slides a bit more than i remember. AI is dumb as it was in the older versions. customizing the cars is good and i like thei got it and it's playable but disappointing. graphics are ok but not pushing the hardware at all. music is crap and why can't you use custom soundtracks? duh, what's the harddrive for? controls are a little squishy but tolerable-seems like the rear end slides a bit more than i remember.

    What this one lacks in technical prowess, it more than makes up in addictivity. Impromptu racing on Tokyo highways has never been this fast, fluent, and fun. Not necessarily a classic but an entertaining racer nonetheless!

  1. Despite its lack of personality, variation or depth, Import Tuner Challenge isn't a terrible racer, and Japanse driving fanatics might get off on multiplayer duels and the realistically non-descript office buildings that pass for scenery.
  2. It has a decidedly limited range of licensed cars, an unsatisfying handling model, a dull course and a difficulty level that's way out of whack.
  3. Graphics and sound aside, this is one of the stronger racing titles available on the Xbox 360, offering a unique racing experience that can’t be found in Need for Speed, Test Drive Unlimited, or any other titles on the market, and is easy to recommend to any speed freak who thinks as much about tuning as they do racing.
