  1. To be honest, the traffic at times was so heavy that I wondered who in their right mind would be holding a street race in the middle of it.
  2. Cinema style is slick, but not enough to save the core gameplay from dragging on after a short period.
  3. I loved the graphics of this game, the cars were flashy and the maps were enormous. Landmarks were right on and transitions from one area to the next were seamless.
  4. Where LA Rush beats the others to the winning post is in the way that it allows you to spend the money you earn - welcome to the video game equivalent of MTV's hit TV show "Pimp My Ride."

    What happened to the rush series!? This is terrible, not much fun. Cops are everywhere, traffic is crazy, almost always in your way. Hard to What happened to the rush series!? This is terrible, not much fun. Cops are everywhere, traffic is crazy, almost always in your way. Hard to race when the track is full of these obstacles. Graphics will make you sick. Only thing good is the cars, using real licensed cars is fun, too bad they don't handle anywhere close to how they should. Full Review »

    If I see one more lousy unskippable low-resolution slow-motion crash cutscene, I'm going to barf all over my console. I suck, you say? If I see one more lousy unskippable low-resolution slow-motion crash cutscene, I'm going to barf all over my console. I suck, you say? OK smart guy, YOU try to avoid the unbelievable amount of junk strewn about each "track". Did I mention that the computer-driven opponents never hit any of it? Bravo, Pitbull Syndicate! You haven't learned a thing in the EIGHT YEARS since you made the equally horrid Test Drive 4! Heck, this game even LOOKS like a PS1 game! Thank God I only rented it... but even so, I feel ripped off. Utterly pathetic. Full Review »
