Smuggler's Run: Warzones
Game Over Online
6 February 2003
Excerpt: Smuggler's Run: Warzones is a first of its kind title for the Nintendo Gamecube but in actuality, it has already gone through two iterations for owners of the Playstation 2. Angel Studios, the developers of the Smuggler's Run series, have taken the latest release of Smuggler's Run and revved it up, literally and figuratively speaking, for the Gamecube's powerful hardware by including new countermeasures, an exclusive map and two new multiplayer modes.
Excerpt: Rockstar Games is notorious for it\'s immoral and otherwise just plain weird games. One of it\'s more famous franchises is Grand Theft Auto, yet it also has done some generally ok games, including Thrasher: Skate and Destroy, developed by Z-Axis, maker of Aggressive Inline, Dave Mirra, and BMX XXX.
Excerpt: Rockstar's now-classic off-road combat driving franchise makes its way to the Gamecube. Smuggler's Run: Warzones features exotic locales, lots of vehicular mayhem, and a kinder, gentler form of international smuggling. Click here.
Summary: The ultimate off-road driving adventure is heading for the Nintendo GameCube! With four player split screen action, five massive levels and a huge arsenal of new countermeasures, working for an elite band of smugglers has never been more exciting or more dangerous. Make the drop, hit the nitro boost and get across the border before all hell breaks loose!

Excerpt: Well, you know when you add bleeding-edge publisher Rockstar to ranks of GameCube developers, you can count on a few more releases being added to the list of “older gamer” titles for the GameCube. Their first effort is Smuggler’s Run: Warzones. SR: W carries a Teen rating but, in truth, if you strip away the B-movie full motion video sequences and the fact that the Contraband in the game has dubious origins, the title is really all about racing cross country and staying...
Conclusion: There is strategy involved in some levels that play more like vehicular Capture the Flag or soccer. These missions have you racing alongside teammates to pick up and deliver more contraband than the competition – and if you don’t have a good mix of forwards, guards, corners, and backs you’ll get wiped off the map. Contraband can be picked up at drop locations or stolen from the opposition by slamming contraband-laden opponents.
Excerpt: Warzones , for better or worse, is more akin to an expansion pack than to a full blown sequel. The gameplay and graphical engine remain the same while giving players a change in scenery and mission objectives - a little something old and a little something new, if you will. Speaking of old, the graphics haven't changed much from when Smuggler's Run first debuted on PS2.
