Nice, but needs tweaking.

  • Summary: I like this game, although driving games are not a favourate of mine. My main gripe is with the viewer rating idea. This is basically a time limit and you can add extra time by doing stunts, shooting at your foe and so on. This is nicer than the usual "complete this mission in 3 mins" approach that some games go for (and which I dislike). The real problem with the viewer rating (VR) is that everything has been cut a little too fine.

What do you mean I'm boring?

  • Summary: I bought this game hoping for a cross between the superb 'Driver' series and the classic 'Chase HQ', sadly I was dissapointed. I suspect that the entire budget for the product went on securing the rights to the name and getting the actor who played Huggy Bear to do the narration. Certainly little thought has gone into the plot, essentially you chase another car, ramming and shooting it, until it stops. My biggest complaint is the viewer rating.

Retro fun

  • Summary: If you like driving, guns, and tongue in cheek jive ass humour, then this is the game for you. Music is great, and the sound throughout is pretty good too. Lots of wisecracks and cheesy comments from Starsky and Hutch during and between game play. Graphically, well.....depends on your taste. The gameplay is really well done, lots of action and interaction with the surroundings, huge levels by the way, which take a lot of exploring.

Bay City's Finest!

  • Summary: Bay City's finest are brought back from day time TV obscurity onto the XBox. Top drawer! Not being a fan of driving games, I was unsure about this but the appeal of chasing the hoods of Bay City through nicely textured streets in a Gran Torino with the voice of Huggy Bear ever present between levels, and the two heros banter about chicks and food brings back the toungue-in-cheek magic of the original TV show.

Class.

  • Summary: Excellent game. Follows the series (after a fashion). Guns, cars, viewer ratings to raise, more guns and cars, Huggy Bear, guns, cars. You get the idea. Nice touches like the cartoon sequences between levels, and the Huggy Bear narration. Infinitely playable for one, good spectator game too.

Starsky & Hutch return in fantastic style!

  • Summary: Forget about Knight Rider and the likes, this is a really cool game!! I was fed up waiting on a review of this game that I eventually had to bite the bullet and see what it was all about! After the likes of Knight Rider and The Dukes of Hazzard you worry that the game is gonna be a major disappointment but this sets you up to see a fantastic and glossy looking game.

Und wieder eine Filmumsetzung

Yuthura, Ciao
31 March 2005
  • Summary: Die Vergangenheit hat leider gezeigt das Filmumsetzungen auf die XBox nicht immer erfolgreich gewesen sind. Empire Interactive versucht es nun erneut und wir wollen mal schauen ob das gut geht. Ich bin ein großer Fan dieser Serie und da lag es natürlich nahe mir dieses Spiel einmal zu kaufen.Was mich besonders freute war das nun endlich mal auch meine Lightgun zum Einsatz kommen durfte.
  • Pros: Lightgun wird unterstützt,gute Präsentation,schöner Soundtrack
  • Cons: zu kurz geraten,im Solo Modus wird es zu schnell langweilig,technisch etwas veraltet

nicht jede Serie gibt ein gutes Game

chipit, Ciao
10 October 2003
  • Summary: Hi zusammen, da ciao an einem Tag 2 meiner Game-Kategorien freigeschaltet hat, nerve ich Euch mit dem zweiten eher schlechten Game für die XBox am selben Tage. Ich weiß nicht warum manche Hersteller denken, daß aus einem "guten" Film/Serie auch gleichzeitig das Game dazu ein Knaller werden muß. So stelle ich Euch ein eher mißlungener Versuch vor, die "Kult-"Serie der 70-er Jahre auf die XBox umzusetzen. --Genre-- das Spiel ist eine Mixtur aus Renn- und Ballerspiel.
  • Pros: sehr wenig, Light Gun
  • Cons: einiges mehr

HIGHWAY74, Ciao

  • Summary: Attention cette avis se base sur la version PC. J’attendais avec impatience la sortie de cette adaptation de la fameuse série culte que l’on ne présente plus. Après quelques heures de jeux, je ne suis pas déçu mais je ne suis pas non plus convaincu. Le jeu reprend heureusement les deux flics acolytes « Starsky et Hutch », mais malheureusement pas leurs voix française. Les cinématiques sont faites en dessin- animés et l’on ne voit aucune séquence de la série télévisuel.
  • Pros: On peut jouer à deux en même temps .
  • Cons: Vite fini .
