  1. SRS has a lot of good things going for it, including some solid comtrols and AI, a very good online mode with pink slips and all, and a very open ended racing system.

    It's truly a surreal (and kind of sleazy) videogame experience to be watching a scantily-clad, silicone-enhanced woman gyrating on-screen as a reward for your racing skills. [Oct 2004, p.82]

    The game has a great tuning set up for your car, and the sound effects aren't bad, but the core of the game lies in the gameplay which is repetitive, and too slow.
  4. A lack of tactile speed, a complicated upgrade system and a number of useless features makes SRS much more of a rental for hardcore driving fans only than a must have.

    SRS just lacks the certain something that made "Need for Speed Underground" so exciting. It's disappointing, because SRS covers all the bases except for the two most important in this genre: There's no real sense of speed, and the handling lacks weight or feel. [Oct 2004, p.98]

    It's the gameplay that disappoints. Most notably, the white-knuckle sense of breakneck speed and the tight, responsive controls oh so apparent in "Burnout 3" or "Underground" just aren't matched here. [Nov 2004, p.97]

    Gearheads who lust after things like a shiny new HKS Turbo will probably have fun tinkering with their fleet. Anyone else will fast become furious over dropping fifty bucks on this game.

    After digging out my Xbox again xmas 06 - I decided to give SRS 'just one more go' Started from scratch again and admit to playing After digging out my Xbox again xmas 06 - I decided to give SRS 'just one more go' Started from scratch again and admit to playing it every day for a couple of weeks! It can be frustrating and even inconsistent at times although rarely, but there is no doubt that it has the playability to keep me coming back time after time. Progression through the respect rating system, the upgrades, the challenges have quite a steep learning curve as some of the tasks are impossible with the car that you have at the time - working your way up through the cars and kitting them is all part of of what makes this the best racing game that I have tried.

    One fine racing game. I hate to say it, but it looks better than Motor City.
