187 Ride or Die Review

VideoGamer.com
19 August 2006
  • Excerpt: 187 Ride or Die is clearly Ubisoft's attempt at making a game that has some street cred. Essentially a racing game with weapons, you've got your home boys, pimped out rides, guns, women and plenty of hip-hop. There's nothing horribly wrong with it, but the 'street' style seems incredibly forced and the game doesn't have the imagination or variation to keep it interesting. While there's a story that plays alongside the racing, it's not too great.

187: Ride or Die – Review

GameCritics.com
15 June 2006
  • Excerpt: Once again, the content versus gameplay argument rears its ugly head. 187: Ride or Die is the pinnacle of everything that people complain about in 'gangsta' culture—the celebration of criminality, the devaluation of human life, the mute bikini girls firing automatic weapons, and, of course, the omnipresent ridiculous slang.

187 Ride or Die

Playstation Illustrated
20 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Ubisoft’s 187 Ride or Die is a mix between Twisted Metal and Grand Theft Auto , offering up some furious gangsta action. While on the surface it may appear to be a mismatch of genres and game styles, this title actually has some pretty interesting and worthwhile features. Graphically, you won’t be blown away. Gran Turismo is still the champ of highly realistic visuals, but 187 ’s graphics still show some bright spots.

  • Excerpt: It’s hard to believe that 187 Ride or Die is developed and published by Ubisoft. They’ve brought us Far Cry , Prince of Persia , Brothers in Arms and Splinter Cell to name a few, yet someone took the decision to create a title that barely lives up to the standard of any of their previous titles. 187 thoughtlessly shoehorns one genre into another, throwing in stereotypes that create a laughable mess of a game. Drive, shoot, drive, shoot, yeah!

187 Ride or Die Review

GameSpot
29 August 2005
  • Summary: 187 Ride or Die is a fairly standard car combat game with extremely repetitive gameplay and a hip-hop theme that feels about as fake and forced as it possibly could.
  • Pros: Poor voice work and subtitles make for some laughs, Frame rate stays smooth
  • Cons: Sloppy story mode, Uninteresting gameplay, Weak AI makes single-player dull

187 Ride Or Die

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: There is an online multiplayer mode in the game, but unfortunately there wasn’t a single soul around in any of the servers to play with, despite numerous attempts. Single player allows a single race/battle, and there’s a splitscreen mode too. The co-op game has one of you driving whilst the other does the shooting, it’s a nice variation on the solo game and can be a laugh riot as you can get your mate to help (or hinder) you in any of the story mode missions.
  • Pros: Reminiscent of classics like Road Blasters, The varying missions/races are a great addition, 187 tries to be a bit different
  • Cons: Doesn’t really grab you with excitement, and gets repetitive quickly, Some of the circuits are far too tight and small, Awful and pointless storyline
