Fondest memories of this amazing game

The Good

This game is perfect! * Action, CONSTANT action. * Living environment. You aren't the only action, there's just ACTION! * An environment that is full of detail and character. Each map is HUGE and are just rich with bright building, streets full of pedestrians and cars, their own hoods with their own styles and flow. * Missions that are exciting and fast paced. If you know the secret to getting through the plot as fast as possible (never miss a fare, and every other fare will be a mission) you end up going on INSANE, funny, deadly, and blood filled missions, no two of them alike. Like running over porta potties until you find the old mayor and run him down. * HUGE weapon inventory. I don't think I ever came close to using all the weapons in the game. When you outfitted your car, the options were staggering * So much style. So much style to this game. Nothing was an afterthought. They really put effort in to capturing their world. * CD Audio! This was, like, a first! * Great MUSIC. I still listen to the soundtrack. * So much replay-ability. I was so good at the missions, that I'd blow through the game way to fast. The only way to just casually drive around and pick up fairs was to eject all the plot fares through the roof! * Silly, unserious, irreverent, and totally fun

The Bad

That it's dead :-(

The Bottom Line

If I could choose only one game in the world, and insist that a gamer with guts play it, it would be this one.
