Summary

Original presentation AND high quality

The Good

When I first heard about this game at E3 (the game industries promotional event) I thought the concept was brilliant. It was like "Starsky and Hutch" meets "Mad Max." The concept was cool, and the developers played it to the hilt with the look and music. The best part was the feel of the game. Driving FELT great, which is NOT the same thing are real. I remember each time I loaded it up I felt like pulling on driving gloves.

The Bad

The graphic engine was not so great, but was reved by the 3DFX version. However, it was mega megs of patching, so that was a drag too. Also, I have grown weary of the "do this ENTIRE level correctly, or you don't go forward" game design, which tends to make you start hating the game instead of wanting to play more. Finally, the car "modification" got old after a bit. There were only so many useful weapons.

The Bottom Line

One of the funnest PC driving games I have ever played.
