Excerpt: The Tokyo Xtreme series has been a favorite of mine for a while. Although it doesn't quite reach the heights of Project Gotham or Gran Turismo , it has always managed to provide a fun and rather addictive experience.
Excerpt: As the game's Quest mode unfolds, a video explains the rather odd story about shattered souls returning to the roadways to reclaim former glory. Lines such as "if power can destroy power... the only thing that can protect it is power" float past while various locales are shown.
Excerpt: When the TXR series premiered on the Dreamcast a little over four years ago, it was a surprisingly additive title that managed to give those into the street racing scene their first really solid video game.
Excerpt: Back in the day, Genki and Crave released a small title for the Dreamcast called Tokyo Xtreme Racer, and later Tokyo Xtreme Racer 2. Both titles were a unique look at the racing genre, but with the death of the Dreamcast, the future didn’t look very good for the series.
