Anannya Sen ’s Review

Review Date: 13/1/05

An average car game for your phone. Graphics and sound are ok but the playability is not great and it shouldn??t take you that long to complete.


This is the mobile version of the ??hit?? film 2Fast2Furious. It??s a standard driving game with lots of tracks and plenty of upgrades.

The graphics probably the best thing about the game. The menu is nothing special, but in-game the cars an backgrounds are very Outrun esque. They look nice but are 16bit console standard. The same goes for the background of each race location selection. The movement of the cars are ok, but you get no real feel of any weight to the car. The pics of the main characters who are from the film and that you race against are nicely done though and Luda looks just like himself. In-game you have your speed, nitro??s and damage bar at the top. There??s a horizontal bar detailing where you and the other cars are in the race (but no map of the course). You do get the turns listed on the top right (with the number of arrows indicating the sharpness and length of the turn) but these come by too fast to see once you are driving.

The sound is pretty average. There is a tune once you start the game but nothing in-game tune wise. There are sound effects of screeching tyres and when you bump into things but these are very average so nothing to write home about.

The controls are straightforward enough. You can use the directional or key pad to drive the car. Up accelerates and down brakes. Hold left and right and you will do a full lock turn, if you hold it too long, your car skids into a 360 degree stop. If you tap left or right, then you can make the turns better. If you have nitro??s, the centre button or 5 will activate them. I used my usual method of holding 2 to accelerate and using the directional pad for steering and nitro??s.

The playability is pretty average. The game has three difficulty levels and options of sound and music. There is also a recentre option whereby the car recentres after a turn. I had this on when I completed the game, but having to correct your turns manually would be an added challenge. The tracks don??t take that long to complete, probably about a minute for each. Once you have paid the entry fee for a track, you can play it as many times as you want. The game is ok to play, there are lots and lots of turns in the course which are pretty tight to get around. The turns can be very long and without the tune-ups it??s very easy to spin out. Actually, even with the tune-ups it??s pretty easy to spin out. There are plenty of tune-ups in the game, but these are pretty easy to get once you start to win a few races. You can tune up the engine, nitro??s, acceleration, steering and body (determines how much damage you take). There are 4 or 5 levels of each tune-up and they are pretty easy to get. The race plays ok, I found myself spinning out a lot and also crashing into things, but on normal I was still able to win the races comfortably. The money won for each race is not structured that well and you can afford all the tune-ups pretty easily. The turning is ok but the turns do come at speed and even when tapping the direction in the turn, you narrowly avoid the trees. There is also some parts of the track over water and if you fall in, then that??s the end of the race for you and you get a wipeout. You also get one if you take too much damage, and the little red bar decreases with each hit until it gets but the turns do come at speed and even when tapping the direction in the turn, you narrowly avoid the trees. There is also some parts of the track over water and if you fall in, then that??s the end of the race for you and you get a wipeout. You also get one if you take too much damage, and the little red bar decreases with each hit until it gets to zero. The game was ok and not overly enjoyable, but you can save your progress though.

The lastability is fairly poor. There are 12 courses to unlock and once you have unlocked a course and paid the entry fee you can play it as many times as you want. The game is just too easy on normal and I finished it in about 40 minutes. Also, you can get all the tune-ups pretty quickly. The lastability was the worst aspect of the game.
