By Vincent Lopez Metropolis Street Racer may have been announced early on in the Dreamcast cycle, but by the time the game was released, the system was on its last legs.
Never mind the fact that this took place over the course of under two years -- it was a shame on all parts. MSR had its problems, but the fact that someone had taken the racing simulation and tried to pull off something truly unique was to be applauded. In a stroke of luck, not only was the developer Bizarre Creations recognized for their work, but they were given the opportunity to do their racer one better for the launch of a new console system.
The entire game is sectioned up into three major modes: Kudos, Quick and Arcade races, each of which tests your general driving skills, your racing skills, and your technique skills respectively. Each mode is split up into race sets, and you can choose the order of each race, and beat them at your leisure.
Try playing the Kudos mode until you unlock a faster car, then go try it again. Part of the reason the game is structured this way is because the game is about technique, not simple wins.

Bruce's return allowed them to both wear the mantle as part of Batman Incorporatedalthough Grayson has since then returned to his Nightwing costume in Traps and Trapezes.|
So you can unlock cars by getting first place in a set of races, by beating a certain car in a one-on-one race, or by getting a certain total number of Kudos. Even in races, the Kudos are always the factor in winning, not simply a place number. Fortunately, the Kudos system is a lot easier to handle in Gotham.
You can points by sustained slides without hitting any wallsfor getting on two wheels, for catching air, overtaking another car, and of course combos based on doing any of them in quick succession.
I was a big fan of the heavier feel of the cars in MSR, and I instantly fell in love with the control in Gotham, particularly in the subtleties between the cars. This is a game that should be judged on its control first and foremost, and in that regards this is a fantastic example of racing precision.
Graphics Some people are going to tell you that this is the most beautiful racing game made to date While the cars and textures in Gotham are absolutely, positively stunning, the lighting and the little details are still as flat as they were in MSR on the Dreamcast.
While racing games have taken lighting to new levels, Gotham tends to give everything a bright, direct look that points out the simplicity of the building architecture rather than work around it.
The cars are beautiful, from the way they reflect the environment and crumple to the way the driver reacts to your commands, but the buildings are almost pulled from another game entirely. The textures on the individual structures are crisp and tight, but windows and detailing are painted on rather than done in actual polygons, which makes the environments seem more toylike than they should.
The road reflections show off what subtle bump mapping can really do, and the particle rain effects off the tires are realistic and entertaining to watch, but grass is a painted green slab, or when a set of buildings are almost flat square blocks, it draws you out of the experience.
Because the detail is so visible on the Xbox, those details are recognizable on the cars, and really let you go geeky on the game. Talking to yourself is only right around the corner.A mostly complete list of the first Project Gotham Racing songs.
