The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

Strategy Informer
7 March 2007
  • Conclusion: Overall, while there is no shame in attempting to replicate something successful, The Fast and the Furious ultimately feels like uninspired, lifeless attempt to recreate the Need for Speed series or indeed any other franchise in the genre. Sure, it takes some of the fundamental principles, but it fails to stand on its own to feet among the pack. The world of Tokyo is dull, repetitive and the gameplay subsequently feels devoid of any excitement because of it.

  • Excerpt: The graphics in The Fast and the Furious are pretty much what you would expect; they're pretty and the car models and environment models look good, but there's nothing that makes the graphics in The Fast and the Furious stand out from the crowd. Well, that is except for the customization engine.

  • Conclusion: More than anything, The Fast and the Furious evokes a sense of indifference. The PlayStation 2 already has a wealth of similarly styled street racers, several of which offer a greater variety of driving, some semblance of a story, and a slicker presentation. Those looking for an extension of the films will be sorely disappointed, and those just looking for some solid street racing have no shortage of other, better options.
  • Pros: Good variety of licensed cars, aftermarket parts, It says "The Fast and the Furious" right on the box.
  • Cons: Limited number of race types, Tracks get repetitive quickly, Inconsistent frame rate, Early races can be easily exploited to kill any semblance of challenge.

  • Conclusion: A fairly basic and accessible racing game is unfortunately marred by upgrades that aren't sufficiently explained. The setting is ripe for a sequel, however, and I'm hoping that it gets just a little more newbie-friendly. For my sake.

  • Excerpt: Der ligger en vis ironi i at filmserien, der nærmest alene lancerede begrebet "street racing" til det brede publikum, først nu bliver til et spil. I mellemtiden har serier som Need For Speed, Burn Out og Midnight Club scoret kassen på hurtige biler og groft uagtsom kørsel. Så meget desto mere pinligt er det også, at stort set alle spil, der har redet med på bølgen, gør det bedre end The Fast and The Furious.

Expert Review

  • Summary: „The Fast and the Furious“ hat nichts, aber auch rein gar nichts, das es im positiven Sinne von der Genre-Konkurrenz abhebt. Wer schon jemals einen Arcade-Racer mit mannigfaltigen Tuning-Elementen und Verfolgungsjagden gezockt hat, der weiß, was ihn mit dem Titel erwartet. Wären all die geklauten Gameplay-Elemente wenigstens auf technisch und spielerisch hohem Niveau, ich hätte sicherlich reichlich Spaß mit dem Spiel gehabt.
  • Pros: Große Tuning-Auswahl, Original Automarken
  • Cons: Keinerlei neue Ideen und Spielmodi, Langweilige Rennen, Unsäglich viele Ladezeit-Unterbrechungen, Ständige Framerate-Einbrüche

The Fast and the Furious

  • Conclusion: Aaaaahhw, you bets beliiiiiivvv dat söööön! I'm gååånn smooook you and yo whip biatch! Fo riiiiial dawg... Lite sådär kan det låta, smått överdrivet, men en hyfsat korrekt spegling av hur handlingen kan te sig i det försenade The Fast and The Furious-spelet, som efter många om och men äntligen är färdigt. Detta är ett spel som är inspirerad av den senaste filmen The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
  • Pros: Massor av bilar, överflöd av möjligheter
  • Cons: Fult, dålig bilfysik, tråkiga banor
