A good rental, nothing more.

Summary: This could have been a much better game had it not felt so rushed in production. The end result is a game who's main mode i completed within 2 and a half hours, and couldn't be bothered with the extra modes (free roam, stunts, time trial etc..).. the game is very simple in execution, and for a quick adrenaline rush of speeding through traffic its fun, but i've seen it better done in a fair few more games, and the stunt/trick system is much better implemented in those..
Summary: The Italian Job: L.A. Heist is a tie-in for a poor film re-make of a classic. It also seems itself to be a re-make of other games. You'll find nothing but Crazy Taxi, Burnout and Stuntman gameplay here. It's great for rental, but as a long term addition to a games collection, I doubt it. You'd be much better off buying Burnout 2 or waiting for Project Gotham 2. Trust me, this is an un-original game.
Summary: As an experienced gamer, I am searching for what most gamers out there are searching for: the perfect game, however this is becoming an increasingly bigger challenge after playing such games as; Splinter Cell, Midtown Madness and of course HALO and if any game I buy isn't up to this kind of standard, I end up trading it.
