This is a ok game for sandbox fans even though it not much free roaming the story mode is quite hard to understand and controls are not great i found the missions were really hard on the plus side it fresh and not something you get on the Wii often.

  Great fun!

I'm not a games expert so I don't know about the finer gaming details of life (e.g. graphics) but I do know I had an absolute blast playing this (except for two exceptionally frustrating levels that needed to be completed - one where you need to chase down 4 cars in around 8 minutes and the final level where you're chasing a helicopter in a sports car and have to shoot it down - mental...fun...but exceptionally frustrating - it'll make grown men cry and nearly give up!).

The downside: There seems to be no option that allows you to select past levels that you may wish to replay once you've completed them. Having completed the game I can no longer play any of those levels. This means I have to start from the beginning. I have found no cheats that access the different levels so I suspect this is not possible. Once the game is over, there's not much to do - a few street races and some jobs around the city (taxi driver, hit man for hire, stealing cars and getting robbers to safety) but once they are accomplished that's it...other then kill innocent people....drive the other way up a one way road and beat up a Police Officer and then take his car (and then shoot down the Police helicopters and SWAT team that comes after you). It'll get all very redundant but then I guess that's what happens when you complete a game. One final point - I bought this for my 5 year old (yes...I had no idea it was rated 18). He loves playing it but there's excessive swearing in the game so unfortunately he has to play the game with the volume down - lets ignore the fact that the swearing isn't needed (and also that I'm a bad parent and he should not be playing a game rated 18) but it would have been nice to have an option where the talking can be muted while everything else remains.

  Worth every penny

I bought this when it was £9.99 and i'd have to say it was worth every penny. Ok, so the graphics aren't the best and the sound of some of the engines is a little annoying at times, but it's gameplay that counts!

I love this and welcome the break from Mario Kart, which is awesome, but now and again it's good to vent your anger. This game is the perfect way to channel all your pent up road rage.

I'd have given it 5 stars if there had been a 2 player mode.

  Great Game

Our 7 year old loves this game as long as the sound is muted as it does contain some bad language. The game is great, controls are easy and tasks are clear. Overall a good deal for the money.

  Game is erm ok

Game is cheap here on play and if you can fight past the annoying controls and less then ps2 graphics you could enjoy it.

I mean you do get used to controls but will take you a while so if your just wanting to grab it straight from box and drive around(like i wanted to you will be dissapointed as well controlls seem reall awkward having to put nunchuck hand down and forward for acceleration and holding a button to make the car even move.

I mean it has intressting ideas but could have been a million times better alot of wii games seem to make this mistake of trying to include wii remote as main controls and they take away all the fun away from the game as your frustrated at swinging arms around trying to do a simple task.

I bought this game for £9.99 an its worth the amount i paid for it. Its tricky when you first start with the handbreak but you get used to it. If you are thinking about getin ths game it worth it.

  Good game

Bought this as I wanted a cheap GTA-esque game for the Wii and was pleasantly suprised how good it was!! The controls were pretty tricky to start especially handbrake turns you have to right at the start! The graphics are not to bad the camera is a bit tricky to master as you use your Wii remote to look at your surroundings etc while you walk/run with the nunchuck. All in all for £10 you cant go wrong, nice little game to add to your collection!

  not the best

| | See all stozza's reviews (59)

Bought this game off a mate as he had finished it he enjoyed it, i played it for around 15 minutes and the controls were awkward and the noise of the car did my head in so I traded it in. Not very good so if you get easily frustrated at games or hate dodgy controls then dont bother
