Excerpt: Little joke in the title there. This was one of the first 'proper' racers I'd ever played, featuring real locations, real cars even real music stations and DJs. It was also the BEST racer I'd ever played. And the same can be said even now. Although, at the time, Gran Turismo 3 on the PS2 was leading the way as a 'Real Driving Simulator', MSR was definitely the 'Real Fun Simulator'. Yeah.
Pros: Great graphics for it's time, catchy music, great cars
Excerpt: The history books may tell you that Formula One '97 for the PlayStation was just another racer in an increasingly-bloated legacy of annually-updated sports sims. However, those who remember it will testify that the 32-bit era would never see another F1 game to match its excellence, and perhaps not without good reason - it would be the second and final F1 game developed by Bizarre Creations, who would disappear for a couple of years and, in 1999, resurface with...
Pros: Looks gorgeous, three huge cities, near - endless challenges, 'Kudos'
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.
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’ tracks.
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.
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.
Excerpt: This game was a second-hand deely, so i thought it'd probably be a bit off, with some scratches, crash afew times maybe. But it DIDN'T! And i would've been able to tell, because the game is just so perfect, any bit wrong and you'd tell in a flash. The graphics are gorgeous, i cant imagine how much work must've gone into them, but mark my words, it's ALOT!
Pros: Excellent graphics, detail, options, handling, gameplay and just a perfect game apart from one or two slightly bad points .
Cons: Very dark in a few small areas, too many options sometimes get annoying .
Excerpt: Where do I start with Metropolis Street Racer? It's hard to decide as there are so many good points to begin with. Forget the Gran Turismo series on the Playstation. I've played them, then I played this and realised that I had to get a Dreamcast, if only to play this amazing game. At first it seems a simple concept, race around the circuit in a certain time to progress. Then you look at the idea of kudos and all of the possibilities it offers.
Pros: Great gameplay and graphics, great game .
Cons: Your social life will competely stop for a few months
Excerpt: Many had waited for a racing game where skills were involved and tracks were unlocked by hand breaking your way around turns and here is Metropolis street racer. Warning though, novices will despise this game, as the aim of it isn’t to shunt other cars off of the course. But anyone will appreciate the graphics and all new features to hit the game. IT has over 250 tracks and some great cars so read on.
Pros: Graphics which will blow you away, clever bots, takes months to do .
Excerpt: the_junker now has Kudos coming out of his ears... Never before has any game used the word "kudos" so much, if at all. But it is kudos (which, by the way, is described in the game at several points) that goes to Bizarre Creations for making a driving game that melds genres seamlessly, a feat that many attempt, but few successfully pull off. MSR is an innovative little title.
