Excerpt: If the opening intro of Tokyo Xtreme Racer Zero doesn't impress you with it's awe-inspiring sights and sounds, then nothing on television in this day and age will either. Once into the game, the cars you race in and against are strikingly realistic. Although the car names aren't displayed, anyone remotely familiar with Japanese cars can tell what the respective cars are due to the lush models.
Excerpt: The Tokyo Xtreme Racer series has always been one of those dubious sleeper hits that I, on the one hand, never figured out why people would like, but, on the other, always liked. I never played the first one, but when a friend of mine lent me the second one, I decided to try it, and I got hooked on it for some reason. So now, when I saw TXR0 is out here in Japan, I decided to pick up a copy of the Japanese version.
