A revolutionary game not to be missed...

This game is one of the hottest for the PS. It allows you to drive freely around Miami and a few other US cities. The cities have working traffic lights and a police force which will go after you if you speed, past a red light or just cause hell. You can't get out of the car but don't fret, even in the car, this game is cool.

Not only can you drive freely throughout this town but there is also a riveting storyline. You play as an undercover cop named Tanner who must go through the criminal underworld to bust the baddest villains. The graphics are good considering it is for the PS but the gameplay is fun which is more important. It also has many mini-games which will keep you occupied for weeks trying to get the highest scores.

I highly recommend this game to anyone with the Playstation or Playstation 2 who enjoys a great story and great gameplay.

SOUND 7/10

The ingame music skips at times and doesn't have a flattering beat. But, it's better than most driving games. It won't make your ears bleed and it is easy to avoid by turning the music volume down. The car affects are great and make you feel like you are actually driving. The police sirens are wonderful and get you into the action of being chased.

GamePlay 9/10

The only reason this doesn't get a full 10 is because you can't get out of the car. You can still drive along the city streets running THROUGH people and jump over roads and things of that nature. It is a purely fun game.

Story 8/10

This is one of the best stories for a car driving game I've ever witnessed. It doesn't have flaws like most and above all else, it is realistic. You will be pulled into the story and will be waiting till the very end to see what the conclusion is.

Controls 7.5/10

They aren't very hard to get used to but anytime you are using this type of controller to drive, it will be difficult. Or maybe just annoying. But if you have a wheel, then this score is easily a ten. Very easy to learn, you may learn them in 20 minutes.

Conclusion

BUY THIS GAME if you are into great stories and riveting action. Don't miss out on one of the best games for the Playstation to date. This game was the most fun I've had in years and the replay value is great since you can just play anytime, driving through the streets being chased by the cops.
