Description

Project Gotham Racing takes you and your car onto the streets at night, where there are people to impress with your driving ability. You can race through cities such as New York and London. Pick one of the 25 cars and customise it to your tastes.

Two innovative features set the game apart from previous racers. The Kudos system awards points based on specific stunts and sharp driving, in a manner more typical of shoot 'em ups than racing games. Also, you can record your own CDs for use in the game, played in random order by a talking DJ.
