    One of the worlds most successful smugglers, Frank Luger, has been contracted by the mysterious Colonel, an ex-Soviet operative in the need of specially trained and highly skilled smugglers that thrive on the thrill of the job. Frank has hired you to join his team of international smugglers to pick up and carry contraband deep into enemy territory.

Take on rival smuggling gangs in the fight for supremacy. Set your team of fellow smugglers to different positions for the best chance of success.

    Push the pedal to the metal in 5 international levels, including Russia, Vietnam, and Eastern Europe. The levels are absolutely massive, with an incredible sense of reality and attention to detail.

With 9 different unlockable vehicles you must choose wisely to find the best vehicle for the mission.

    6 exciting multiplayer modes are on offer for 1-4 players, including:

    Crooks n’ Smugglers – All in race to get to the package first, and survive the onslaught as you deliver it to it’s destination safely.

    Loot Grab – Loot is scattered all over the terrain. You and your team-mates work together to collect as much as possible.

    Bomb Tag – Similar to Loot Grab, but you may get stuck with a bomb. Bump into other players to get rid of the bomb before it explodes.

    Domination – Take control of the strongholds as a team, or against each other.

    Fox & Hounds – Protect your loot at any costs. If the opponent gets the loot, damage it as much as possible

    Checkpoint race – Race across massive landscapes and drive through all the checkpoints to win.

    Race over the border between losing and winning.



    The folks at Rockstar dare you to take a full throttle romp on the wrong side of the law in Smuggler's Run: Warzones, an off-road driving adventure for the Nintendo GameCube.

    We're on a Mission, Sir

    In Smuggler's Run: Warzones, you are faced with various missions that challenge you to hunt and gather contraband while evading rival gangs and the border patrol in high-conflict zones around the globe. The massive scale of the five wide-open environments make you feel like the world is your playground.

    As a member of an elite international smuggling ring, most of your 30 missions consist of finding and delivering contraband. The occasional escort mission or nighttime excursion will keep you on your toes, but the game pretty much sticks to the same formula throughout.

    Despite uninspired mission structure, the action in Smuggler's Run: Warzones is anything but dull. You are not the only shady character after the goods. Rivals will try to snatch your cargo and law enforcement will do whatever it takes to disable your vehicle. As these high-octane 4x4s tear up the back roads, you will witness spectacular collisions, trucks flipping end-over-end, and buggies blown sky-high by land mines. And all this chaotic action is governed by a well designed physics system.

    Graphics

    Smuggler's Run: Warzones is a good showcase for the power of the Nintendo GameCube. Car parts fly off as you take damage, exposing a steel frame; terrain is detailed with local vegetation, rocks and hills; and when your reach high ground, you are treated to scenic views stretching out for miles. For a sharper and clearer image, select the Progressive Scan option when playing on a TV set that supports that feature.

    These vast landscapes are not there just for looks, though, because in Smuggler's Run: Warzones, if you can see something in the distance, you can probably drive to it. Playing as a globetrotting smuggler, you can explore hot spots all over the world, including Eastern Europe, Vietnam, and North America.

    You'll traverse rain, snow, swamps and mountains to deliver the goods. These weather effects not only look good, they affect how your car handles.

    Multiplayer

    With five multiplayer modes, Smuggler's Run: Warzones delivers another great way to destroy your friends' self-esteem. Four-player action includes levels from previous installments of the game as well as five new locations.

    Two new multiplayer modes include Domination, which is similar to capture the flag, and Fox & the Hound, which challenges each player to hold a payload for as long as possible in a game of keep-away.

    Smuggler's Run: Warzones is a good excuse for some intense off-road driving. The missions may not be very complex, but the enemy AI will give you a challenge when you can't muster some friends for a multiplayer match.

    This game has been rated "T" (Teen) by the independent Entertainment Software Rating Board. Progress is saved to a Memory Card (not included).

    Der Nachfolger des spektakulären Actionrennspiels: Smuggler's Run 2. Auch der zweite Teil glänzt durch unvergleichliche, riesige Areale, noch mehr heiße Flitzer und noch gefährlichere Missionen.

    Die Schonzeit für die State Police ist vorbei, die Schmuggler gehen in die zweite Runde. Als Mitglied eines internationalen Schmugglerrings müssen Sie Ihre Ware ins Trockene bringen und dabei sowohl Polizei und CIA wie auch fiese konkurrierende Gangs hinter sich lassen.

    Mit Vollgas rasen Sie durch gewaltige Landschaften u.a. in Vietnam, die sich über Dutzende Quadratkilometer erstrecken und in denen Sie sich vollkommen frei bewegen können. Ihre Fahrkünste sind in über 30 irrwitzigen, abwechslungsreichen Missionen gefragt, in denen Sie durch Tempelanlagen, kleine Fischerdörfer und gefährliche Gebiete jagen - im Wettlauf gegen Polizei, Konkurrenten und gegen die Zeit. Halten Sie Ihre Augen offen, welche Waren Sie transportieren, denn einige Schmugglerpakete sind explosiv, andere bremsen Ihre Geschwindigkeit und einige sind zerbrechlich und verlieren schnell an Wert.

    Smuggler's Run 2 bietet Ihnen eine Auswahl an neuen Fahrzeugen, die bei Kollisionen die "Fetzen fliegen" lassen. Neben der exzellenten Grafik mit unglaublicher Weitsicht brilliert das Spiel auch durch einen mitreißenden Soundtrack.
