Game Play[edit | edit source]
The plot of the game is to beat every single club and accomplish the requirements to enter the Race of Champions, where you can win a bonus car. Players have to race others on the streets during the daylight for some prestige (respect) or money to modify your car. These daylight races are similar to Outrun races in Need For Speed: Underground 2. During the night, players can either participate in a drag race against one other driver or watch a race.
One feature of this game is the way damage is handled. Damage can be done to many individual parts of the car, including the engine, bumpers, doors, windows, and hood. This damage must be repaired Unlike other games, the car is not returned to pristine condition after racing—instead, any damage sustained during driving will be permanent until repaired.
Cars[edit | edit source]
Cars in the game look very similar to their real-life counterparts, but are given fictitious names. For example: the Mitsubishi car company is named Shimutsibu, Subaru is called Ishima, Chevrolet Camaro is called MC, BMW is called Baiern, Nissan is called Emer. Depending on the version of the game, there are 2 prize cars: Prime DLH 500 (meant to be a Shelby GT500) or if the 2.3.0 LE is being played, the "Furrano GTS" which is believed to be an Ferrari Enzo. Players can buy cars from the Used Car Dealer or the New Car Dealer. Initially, players are only given enough money to buy a used car and repair it if it was inexpensive enough.
In addition, players can modify any part of their vehicle using a dynamic garage system. Like the cars, the parts are fictional, and are "supplied" by the game's fictional parts developer SL Tuners. In particular, the many engine components are highly modifiable, including intake, exhausts, camshafts, crankshafts, engine blocks, intake manifolds, cylinder heads, turbochargers, etc. Parts can be mixed and matched to create unique engines.
