Fantastic Game. Unique game play style. Exciting and addicting.

  • Summary: MSR is a fantastic racing game. In my personal opinion it's by far the best racing game you can play on the Sega Dreamcast. I personally own 150+ titles for the dreamcast (including like 8 racing games) and I would most definately put this one at the top of the list. (as far as car racing goes. Because man i love Star Wars racer for pod racing :P but thats a whole different style of game play).. Anyhow. Excellent game.

Best racing game of the Dreamcast era

  • Summary: This racing game is not about how fast you drive, but how you drive fast. That says it all for Metropolis Street Racer (or MSR). It's a very accurate game, increasingly difficult challenges and races, and a Kudos system that taxes your every driving skills. The music is great, the scenarios are gorgeous and precise (they used about 44 000 pictures of the three different cities to make the world of the game) and the sound effects are very immersive.

A racer that was way ahead... of it's time.

  • Excerpt: "...despite the presence of GT3, Metropolis Street Racer is a unique racing game, not like any other racer before or since. Well, except the Project Gotham Racing series', which is more-or-less the child of MSR. This game is not one to be missed. If you're the lucky owner of a Dreamcast, and you don't own this game, I highly recommend you get it ASAP. Pick it up from eBay dirt cheap and you'll be glad you did. Forget your Need for Speeds and Gran Turismos ...
  • Pros: Great graphics for it's time, catchy music, great cars
  • Cons: Many bugs, no replays

MSR - No Pandemic But Still Worth Catching

tom1clare, Ciao
26 April 2008
  • Excerpt: "...fun. To a large degree, Metropolis Street Racer attempts to replicate the formula, but in a much more extreme fashion. You want super-cars, insane speeds and real-life circuits recreated down to the last bump, right? Well, you've come to the wrong place. Whilst Gran Turismo proudly proclaimed that it was the 'Real Driving Simulator', the term is perhaps more befitting of MSR, which features relatively little in the way of actual racing (at least ...
  • Pros: Looks gorgeous, three huge cities, near - endless challenges, 'Kudos'
  • Cons: Unforgiving, difficult, uninspiring cars, 'Kudos'

Metropolis Street Racer- At a glance

10 March 2003
  • Excerpt: "MSR- Metropolis Street Racer for the Sega Dreamcast introduced, to me, a new style of racing. The quality graphics, fast cars and superb sound make it feel as if you are inside the car. KUDOS- This game brings with it a unique points-scorer in the form of Kudos. This means that you gain points needed for the next race or car varying according to your skill, style and penalties. SKILL- Points for your skill during a race are given for sharp turns, ...
  • Pros: The fantastic graphics and speed

  • Excerpt: "Metropolis Street Racer is probably the best racing game that I have ever played on. It is the most addictive game I have ever played on. Like most other sim-based racers, MSR places an emphasis on real-world cars and realistic driving physics. The graphics are simply superb and contribute to a major part of the quality of the game. You drive around London, Tokyo and San Francisco with each city having three distinctly different areas for its’ ...

  • Excerpt: "When this monster of a game was released back last year, it was heralded as the Dreamcasts make or break game. It had been years in the making, and delayed more than British Rail services, but this could only make it a better game, surely? Well... no. This game has been over produced. It has been killed by the developers over-ambition. It has had so many good ideas pumped into it that none of them have been implemented as well as they could ...
  • Pros: Graphics, Handling, Nice range of cars

  • Excerpt: "Having just bought myself a Dreamcast I have been addicted to this game recently, hence my lack of Ciao time over the past few days. The package is very slick indeed from the introductory video clips to the level of detail within the game itself. There are hundreds of races to take part in and dozens of different cars to drive. You can take part in individual races or time trials or the centrepiece of the game, the street racing itself which involves ...
  • Pros: Quick and addictive .
  • Cons: When it rains .
