Budget conscious gamers take note: Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift has shipped for
the PlayStation 2. Now, I have no idea if it's any good, but I can tell you that
it's cheap. Will it cost you $19.99? No! It's retailing for just $14.99!
Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift features licensed vehicles from Nissan, Toyota,
Mitsubishi, Subaru, Audio, Alfa Romeo, Mini, Volkswagen and more. The
action takes place on real courses, including: Iroha, Haruna, Rokko and Hakone.
The game will also have to racing modes – as a race car driver, you take
part in official mountain races during the daytime and then race for pride (and
car upgrades and parts) at night. The idea is to earn money from day races to
enhance your car and then bet car parts in night races. Sponsors will further
enhance your income if you are successful.
If you're a fan of the series, you should have a pretty good idea what to
expect, and for $14.99, it's pretty hard to go wrong.
