Conclusion: SRS is a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing - masked behind pedestrian visuals, a mediocre soundtrack, and a rocky release to market with the whole 3DO debacle, is a racing game with absolutely incredible physics and handling and a fun career mode. Unfortunately, I can see SRS getting passed over like the fat kid when sides are taken for dodgeball - a lot of competition and huge advertising dollars may send this one into obscurity.
Conclusion: The “Twenty games for twenty bucks” ad campaign for MAT 2 is hard to ignore, especially when the games are so important to the current state of gaming. Without the titles of videogame past, we wouldn’t have the techno-marvels which wow us on a daily basis. Midway’s selections are not only well thought out but they also perform as flawlessly as possible given the hardware and peripheral differences.
Summary: Namco's SRS: Street Racing Syndicate for
Xbox is an underground racing game for the Xbox that offers a unique spin on the
genre. It borrows elements from other popular street racing titles with
extensive car customization and female models adding to the mix. SRS' cars have
a realistic feel with tight, responsive controls that allow you to power slide
through corners, drift in front of rivals and perform other cool maneuvers
Excerpt: Curse you Vin Diesel, for two reasons: one being unleashing Paul Walker on film screens everywhere (along with Tyrese for a sequel to The Fast and The Furious); the other one for getting game studios to try to capitalize on the coolness of illegal street racing. Thanks to the success of the aforementioned movie, almost every single game publisher tried to reproduce its winning formula.
Excerpt: There are three main game types in SRS: Arcade Mode, Multiplayer and Street
mode. We'll get to the other two modes a bit later, but for right now,
we'll focus on the Street mode, which is the primary thrust of the game.
Here, you'll start your illegal racing career thanks to a number of
Conclusion: You can take out your aggression, get your adrenaline pumping without being arrested, killed or injured in Namco's Street Racing Syndicate . SRS isn't a bad game at all; it just doesn't deliver how you'd expect. I would recommend SRS for more import racing fans then just your average racing fan. Rent it and check it out.
Conclusion: Ein richtig schlechtes Spiel ist Street Racing Syndicate nicht. Das in SRS enthaltene Schadensmodell fehlt bei vielen anderen Titeln, die "Freundinnen" sind im Prinzip eine gute Idee, und die Polizei w�rde bei besserer Umsetzung endlich einmal den Eindruck von Illegalit�t bei den n�chtlichen Rennen vermitteln.
Pros: Optisches und physisches Schadensmodell, Wetten gegen Konkurrenten, Ordentliche Grafik
Cons: Eintönige Rennmodi, Geringe Fahrzeugauswahl, Kaum Tuning-Optionen, Polizei-Verfolgung witzlos, Keine nennenswerte Rahmenhandlung
