BAD & INCOMPLETE gameBy Emran (6 reviews) from London , 09 Apr 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Midway went into administration when making this & other games & you can tell by playing this because the game is INCOMPLETE. There are only 8 different vehicles & the city is lifeless hardly any people or vehicles. You can complete the story within 3 hours max. There are side missions but I got bored after doing them once. This could have been a good game if they spent more time on it so DONT BUY THIS GAME RENT IT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

Not even worth a rentBy 57Royston (1 review) , 20 May 2013Let's be honest, we all got this game because Vin Diesel was on the front cover, while some of the cut scenes he is in are enjoyable the majority of the characters are boring and I honestly couldn't care how the game ends or who dies. The handling of the vehicles is at times frustrating (especially when in the larger vehicles) however it is the main focus of the game and for a couple of hours it is fun to play. However the shooting mechanics are clunky as well as pointless when driving. The upgrades are pointless since I sailed through half of the game without getting a single one. The method of which you attain these is by completing side missions, however you are not told what side mission upgrades what and the side machines are very unbalanced. Some like 'rampage' are difficult due to the surroundings, however others like 'taxi' and 'fugitive' are a walk in the park. The music doesn't stand out and is instantly forgettable, there are only 3 radio stations; each with no stand out songs. One of the other issues I have with the game is the large number of bugs and glitches in the game. There was one mission where you have to destroy 4 racers on motorbikes, however I destroyed the final 2 in one hit but the game discounted the other racer and said I still had to destroy him, forcing me to restart the mission from square 1. Overall I would only recommend this to die hard Vin Diesel fans, there are no redeemable features and this is one of the most lifeless sandbox games I have ever played with virtually no re-playability. Final score: 1/10
Crap GameBy a customer , 06 Feb 2013Glitched though the map on first level so sent it back DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME RENTING THIS **** GAME. .
Really wanted it to be better.By card_kid (2 reviews) , 08 Oct 2012I have to be honest, this game is poor.
I really wanted it to be good and I had high hopes for it even though I knew it wouldnt be a 5 star game.
To just start off, the storyline is boring, it has nothing keeping you playing.
Also the control of the vehicles is very arcade like and unrealistic.
