Street Racing Syndicate feels and plays like a good old-fashioned Racing Game.
It has kind of fancy graphics for its date of release (2005) and still looks ok for a low-priced game today.
I enjoyed driving around in tuned cars on set-up areas.

The music is really nice, unlike many other games where it gets repetetive quickly. The customization part is pretty good, you have enough variety to tune a lot of cars without using the same stuff more than once.

The AI is easy for a racing veteran but defenitly ok for beginners. The game does not feel like its punishing you for every little mistake.

I'd recommend this game for everyone who wants to enjoy an old racing game where you can tune cars and enjoy some good music. It's a good game to start your racing career - probably also a very good game for our younger members of the gaming community.

6/10 compared to todays standard due to outdated graphics and slightly sluggish controls.
8/10 as a racing game.

Street Racing Syndicate is an arcade racing game, created on the wave of astonishing success of the Need for Speed Underground. There were plenty of them back in the days, but only a few deserves our attention after all those years passed. If you need comparisons, I'd say that SRS is more realistic than NFS Underground 1 & 2, and have some unique features to hold player's interest - the most noticeable, the down-to-earth system of upgrades, and, of course, girls. Girls who encouraging the player with the original driving quests, and awards with private go-go dances, once you achieve something on the streets.

As of downsides, the game is quite dated at moment (released in 2005), and it is not a "living classic", like NFS games. Sadly, even being more fair with player than NFS, Street Racing Syndicate is not possessing the fleur of the "legend in flash". Which is more, it lacks the drive that raised NFS Underground so high. The driving in the open world could be the pain in the back, as the map is not just slightly informative... and gosh, how many coppers there on patrol?! It's really hard to speed there, staying under the radar.

Overall, I can't hardly recommend it. Get it on sale, or bundled, if you're up to some arcade racing with open world, where cars not bouncing from the border lines, maintaining speed. Where you have to pay for repairs, which urges you to drive a bit more carefully. Where you have your own club of long-legged female venerators... however low it may sound, it feels alright, try it sometimes.

My personal mark will be 6.9/10. It's on the level with Juiced or just slightly not even with NFS Underground 2. But yeah, it's been about 12 years now, and there are plenty of newer open-world racing games, starting with TDU 2 or the Crew. None of them holds so much go-go dancing girls, of course, but I wouldn't buy the game just to look at dancing cuties. Would you?
