    Gameplay is very good with cops being very aggressive, lot of collisons, 2 cop cars chasing staying right with you. You can also be a cop. The graphics are good won't be disatisfied. The problem is that to unlock new tracks you have to play and beat the game and you play the same 3 tracks (also beat in reverse)which are 4 laps just to long.

  1. If you want a game to be realistic but not so real you need an MOT, buy this game. If you feel that games should offer boundless enjoyment and make you smile like a ten year old at Christmas, buy this game.

    Outrunning the cops while racing on gorgeous international tracks is damn fun... [but t]he intense sense of speed found in the PS2 version is missing. [Winter 2002, p.103]

    The fuzz and Need's sense of speed are what kept me playing. However, many of the modes are the same rat race in disguise. [Nov 2002, p.141]
