Had it been twice its length, and included more Challenge and Multiplayer Modes, Chase: Hollywood Stunt Driver would have had the potential to be a must-buy game. But while the game is certainly the best of its kind (yes, better than Stuntman), Chase should most likely be a rental for all but the die-hard fans out there. bam!, hear our cries... we want more. Well, there's always next year.
Trotz kleinerer technischer Mängel macht Chase eine Menge Spaß und ist auf Grund der angenehmen Missionsstruktur und dem damit einhergehenden fast auf Null reduzierten Frustfaktor spielerisch dem PS2-Konkurrenten Stuntman gnadenlos überlegen. Die Multiplayer-Modi sind ebenfalls nett, sind aber eher als schmückendes Beiwerk zu verstehen. Angesichts der eher durchschnittlichen Grafik- und Soundkulisse wurde hier allerdings viel von dem verschenkt, was Chase zu einem Top-Hit hätte machen können. Nette Unterhaltung, die unter dem Strich eine vollwertige Alternative zum PS2-Stuntman darstellt.
Chase takes a unique approach to the stunt racing genre and puts the old Tony Hawk spin on gameplay. This makes the game very approachable for a much wider audience of various skill levels and limited attention spans. It also conceals the repetitive nature of the gameplay by keeping the levels short and the objectives diverse and challenging. Most of all, Chase is fun, so whether you rent it or buy it, just make sure you play it.
In the end, Chase: Hollywood Stunt Driver is a decent game that is fun to play in parts. The game's physics system strikes a good balance between real-world and fantasy physics, giving you both predictable control and fantastic crashes and jumps. The one major negative is the fact that you can get through the game with about five or six hours of dedicated play if you do well. The game does include three multiplayer modes that allow up to four players to compete in a variety of activities like racing or trying to "outstunt" one another, but the modes are locked at the start and require you to pick up hidden trophies in the game's single-player mode. While Chase: Hollywood Stunt Driver is certainly fun, it's so short you should probably just rent it.
All in all, the game's okay. Some of the missions are pretty fun, but others are repetitive and boring. The multiplayer mode isn't great, nor is anything else that can be unlocked. The graphics and sound are only decent, nothing fantastic. It's actually a pretty mediocre game, but if you find yourself itching for a new driving game, a rental wouldn't be a bad idea. Don't spend your money on it, please, as it's only going to last you a few days; in other words, a perfect reason to head out to Blockbuster. Now rev up those engines and hit the road, all you aspiring stuntmen out there. I mean women.
Chase lacks ingenuity, vive, and excitement. There are no tense moments, no times where you will throw down your controller over the difficulty of a situation, and no real reason to play it all the way through. It lacks passion. I can't say I had fun playing the game, but for some reason I kept playing. Maybe it was just to see if it would get better. Probably because it wasn't a terrrible game and it was hard to believe how lifeless it felt. Chase might be a rental, but certainly isn't worth the price of admission. With so many games coming this Holiday, save your $50 for a more worthy offering.
