Quoted from Tokyo Xtreme Racer DRIFT Reviews:Check out these quotes from Tokyo Xtreme Racer DRIFT reviews & previews
"When to comes to street racing games, most US gamers will probably think of a couple of high-profile titles, but how many remember a couple of imports that made it out over here such as High Velocity or Highway 2000 on the Sega Saturn, or Tokyo Highway Battle on the PS One? While these games made early inroads in bringing Japanese tuner cars to America, it wasnt until the Tokyo Xtreme Racer games on the Sega Dreamcast that gamers really got their feet wet in the sport. The developer, Genki, has been doing street racing games for over ten years, but these days US audiences have been bombarded with much flashier entries in the sub-genre appealing to the McRacing crowd that have left the TXR series in the dust. While other companies have given their racers the super-slick treatment with a combination of Hollywood special effects, booby, bimbo fish "models" slinking about and overly pimped-out rides, theres a certain stylistic (and slightly offbeat) edge in each Tokyo Xtreme game that makes them rewarding to play."
"It nails some of the key points of the drift-racing genre, but Tokyo Xtreme Racer DRIFT lacks practically every other component needed to make an exciting racing game."
"Tokyo Xtreme Racer DRIFT is a poor game through and through. Its driving mechanic fails in most every way, and being that it's centered around your ability to properly drift, the game simply doesn't work very well. Combined with a disjointed, somewhat confusing and seemingly pointless progression system, there's not anything here for anyone other than die-hard Genki fans."
