Metropolis Street racer is another one of my best Dreamcast games that I have suddenly become inseparable from – this racing game is just darn addictive! I suppose it must be a combination of the amazing graphics, with accurately detailed cars and tracks – based in three very real, real life cities (Tokyo, the Japanese circuits are based here) (London – us Brits can enjoy a tour of Westminster, St James Park, and all sorts in England’s representative) (San Francisco providing the American city) and all look very, very realistic indeed – a mightily impressive graphics fest of a game. Nothing I have played on the PlayStation looks anywhere ... Read the complete review

MSR Street racing used to be about how many people you could run over and still manage to finish in under 2 minutes, but after all that can only prove so much fun. Ever thought of a game that would be near impossible to complete, but not stupidly impossible. That’s the idea about MSR, its not impossible, but still manages to be bloody hard. The hardest part is not finishing the race, but trying to drive with style and still with a solid speed of 75mph. That’s why Kudos is involved it’s idea is to earn points by quality driving and then totalling them up at the end of the race to give a bonus to your score. Not only do they help your score, but ...

It is only since the price drop in the Dreamcast that I have finally been able to get my hands on this wonderful piece of machinery. For £100 I got a DC plus all the accompanying leads etc, a VMU (the memory card thingy) and 3 games. The first game was the Virtua Fighter game that launched the machine, which isn't bad, but not my cup of tea. Then was Jet Set Radio (the rollerblading/spraypainting game) which took up all of my first 3 days play, a superb game, just take a look at all the other opinions on it. After 2/3 days, I finally got around to opening up MSR... Well...first of all I had very low expectations of this game. I'm not too much into ... Read the complete review

Metropolis Street Racer is very much the best Dreamcast racing game at the moment and has done well to receive a lot of high critical acclaim for it’s astounding graphics, sound, gameplay style but most notably the attention to detail on every car and city - you select a real life car, earn respect in kudos form, partake in a series of challenges in 25 intense chapters and earn the chance to use newer and better machines including the supreme Mitsubishi Evolution 6! The game is based on a one-player game, although you can play two players, or select a kind of tournament whereby 8players can play in a knockout stage. The graphics are some of the ...

This game is excellent, it's all about perfecting your style and setting your own limits for maximum kudos. Powersliding round the corners and pulling off a perfect round is tremendously satisfying. To answer some of the criticisms: If you're sick of driving some courses at night all the time due to the real-time system, just choose a different time zone at the start of the game, it's simple as that. M-SR is also great to play. The cars drive perfectly and the challenges are hard enough and interesting enough to keep you going for a long time. It's not too dark in the night-time races, the brightness on your tv is too low. The night time ... Read the complete review
