This is a good game, but not quite as good as the `Need For Speed` series. Only three things here were better than NFS:
1. Realistic damage that I had to have repaired at an auto body garage (not magically repaired when I returned home).
2. You place wagers with an opponent that you're about to race.
3. I didnt have to `unlock` new performance parts or vinyls (and there were LOTS of great vinyls).
And now... The downsides:
1. Only Japanese cars. Dont misunderstand me. I have nothing against Japanese cars. I love the Skyline. But I also like Ford, Chevrolet, Ferrari, and more.
2. Some of the racing looked more like pro racing, like NASCAR. It had advertising billboards over the tracks and paths and some even had grandstands with spectators like we were racing at Daytona Speedway.
3. The police do not chase you when you are actually racing. They wait until you finish and leave the series.
4. In pursuits, there are no breakers or hiding places.
SRS is a mixture of fake and real racing and it does very well at it.Sure it can't keep up with N4S or Gran Turismo but there is some fun to be had.The game has excellent graphics and some nice car customization.But, when you start uppin your horses, you need somthin equally good to slow it down.All in all, RENT IT!!!
Although this game seems pretty cool, playing it myself really bummed me out. the street looked extremely wet, which really threw me and my friends off. and this is coming from a huge racing game fan-the handling was completely unrealistic, even NFS was better. as far as the power and such goes, the way everything was put together was poor...
