User reviews for Smuggler's Run 2: Hostile Territory
7.1 / 10Combined Score
This game is definitely another great game brought to us by our friends at Rockstar. It isn't as good as the first one but its still very good. I purchased it and I love it.
It still has the great multi-player modes and they are still a blast to play and still have the very high replay value. The storyline missions are still fun but still repetitive but either way, its a blast.
This game is very addicting and you'll find yourself crawling back to it even if you just put the controller down minutes earlier.
Overall Outcome: Buy It!

Anyway, so SM2 is no GTA3. it never claimed to be, and it never tried to be. In this game,...
Where do I begin? Repetition, poor graphics, repetition, no mission development, repetition, annoying audio, lousy controller configuration options, did I mention repetition?
This is the worst game I have played on the PS2. The graphics look as if they came from a PS1 game. The vehicles look ok, but the surrounding landscape is fuzzy at best, and the people walking around look like shadows rather than real people. Maybe I'm spoiled by GTA3...
There is no mission development what so ever. You simply drive to a location represented by a yellow dot on your map, pick up a package, and then take it to a red dot on your map where you drop it off. All the while other cars are crashing into you. This goes on level after level and there is absolutely nothing more, unless it comes late in the game and I never saw it as I got tired and quit after completing 15 or 20 missions. The game real...
