North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtEver wondered what it would be like to drive around London, Tokyo or San Francisco at breakneck speeds? Well, that's what M-SR is all about, giving you the chance that you never seem to get, to burn rubber in the city.Not your average console racing game, Metropolis Street Racer, or M-SR to its friends, is no pick a car and pick a circuit game, but instead offers you the chance of racing road-worthy cars on the streets of London, Tokyo and San Francisco. Based around earning Kudos, your task is not only to show that you can drive well and fast through these streets, but that you have the class and style to do so. The more Kudos you earn, the more points gained, the more points gained, the better cars you have access to, starting with the likes of the MX-5 and ending up with the new Vauxhall VX220. Where the game excels, however, is not the fact that you have over 40 cars to race or even that you have 25 chapters with 10 races per chapter over the three various cities, but the extent of detail offered in the game.Every city has been painstakingly mapped out with intricate detail, whether it's the layout of Parliament Square in conjunction with St James Park or Pacific Heights in San Francisco. If this wasn't enough to keep you happy, Sega has used the Dreamcast's internal clock to set the time in the game. Race in the UK in the evening, and London would be in darkness, while San Fran would be experiencing midday and in Tokyo you would experience the morning sun.Forgive the pun, but Sega seem to be turning the corner with this title, giving us what they promised a long time ago; a driving game with passion, a driving game with choice and most of all, a driving game with great Kudos. --Stuart Miles
