The Fast and the Furious

The Fast and the Furious is a street racing playstation 2 game. It has the content of what most guys would dream of, hot girls, cool cars and out of the ordinary guys. This time, the racing takes place in Tokyo and is released by Namco Bandai. As a matter of fact, this game was released just before the third installment of its movie was released. It is said that it is unavoidable to escape the Japanese feel in this game. Players are allowed to drive where they want thus escaping the dangerous highways and byways that are twisted in Tokyo.

Features

A couple of things that got players excited would be the meeting or rather encounter with other racers in Tokyo. That is said to bring even more excitement to the game. To outdrive an opponent is what players look forward to in this game. The fact that players have almost full control on the street has been appreciated and praised as well. No loading time is experienced while waiting to drive on the highways. Other features that players would be able to try-out would be exiting off the main thoroughfares and checking out car dealerships, tuning your ride at the local garage, or entering local hill races, where your specialized racing skills will be tested. Players can also challenge a couple of local hill-racing experts for diverse racing competitions. Among racing modes and options are the Grip Battles, Touge Battles and Drift Battles. Grip Battles are mainly the usual kind of racing competition which means that the first player across the finishing line is the lucky winner. Then we have Touge Battles that ensures or rather have the players ensured that they are distanced from their opponents. For the Drift Battle, players have to simply make their vehicles look really attractive and showing off a couple of drift moves in the competitions and with those settled, players will score points for every drift that they achieve so in the end, the winner will be the car with the most number of points. For the drifting turns options, there are about seven methods featured and they can be found in the career mode which explains their functions via a handy tutorial. Events in this racing game includes taking highway battles compiling loads of cash which will help you in choosing a new car or cars and a whole lot of upgrades opportunities for your vehicles. LAN, online, and split-screen multiplayer capability are all featured.
