"Kouen and Lasharus get stuck in the slightly over-blatant Street Racing Syndicate, racing their way through an inner city and causing all sorts of chaos"

Hey guys,
First of all the keywords there are "Nostalgia" and "Old but gold"

Pros:
+U can rice the sh#t out of the cars with fancy vinyls with Japanese girl characters or flames
+You can choose from 3 gear-boxes: Auto; Semi-Auto; Manual
+Grapichs with max resolution and max settings can`t burn your eyes out like on lowest(It`s really a challange)
No but really they aren`t that bad!
+You can OWN GIRLS beating the lap records of ex boyfriends
+Your bodykit actually affects specs of cars
+You can damage your cars and you`ll need to pay for that

Cons:
-/+The engine sound randomly disapears while racing so it feels like driving Tesla in some moments

Suggestion:
Buy RWD ride
Cornering with FWD is such a struggle!

Opinion:
I Can`t understand why people compare this with nfsu, yea of course both are racing games and in both you can upgrade your car!
But in SRS you can: Damage cars; OWN GIRLS; PLACE BETS; STREETRACE FOR MONEY 1x1 with "big boys" standing in streets

Its not a bad arcade racer and may have a few simularities to games like Need for Speed Underground. Like those games it also came with the common 4:3 only resolutions. Which means no widescreen support. However I found a fix for that, that allows me and you to play in upscaled 720p, 1080p or higher resolutions. If you'd like to learn how check the following link and start enjoying this game all over again.

It's a fun little street racing game with eye candy (as best as 2004 can offer) and a decent selection of cars. Easy to control but navigating car customization is annoying and sometimes your engine noise can cut off.

Good game. Reminds me of the Illegal street ricing games of yore, mostly because it IS one of those games. Be warned though, the PC port is jankey, and you will need to do wierd stuff to get widescreen to work.

Also the in game music is HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE. "Ok, so it's not exactly Halo/GTA IV/NMRIH/Hotline Miami/Sonic levels of quality, so what?". Well, if you like 10 C-list gangsta rap songs from 13 years ago, then by all means leave your speakers on and enjoy the music. I ran for the music volume in the menu as fast as a I could. Just consider this a "bring your own music" game. I recomend Kavinsky, Boards of Canada, Mitch Murder, Aphex Twin, Lazerhawk, Carpenter Brut, M-O-O-N, Perturbator... umm, you get the idea. New Retro Wave Hipster music. NOT THE IN GAME MUSIC.

Anyway, what the heck are you doing in this game anyway? Rather simple, You start out in typical fashion winning a bunch of money in a random race in somone elses car, then you have $30,000 to spend on a car. Bet your money and win more stuff. Win and repeat or lose and die. The end. And earn worthless rep.

Oh, and the police in this game are derps. GOTTA GO FAAAAAAST

Decent racing game but it doesn't really offer anything new to the racing game market nowadays. Get it only for nostalgia or steam trading cards

One of the hidden gems off the greatest console of all time, this is far from any need for sped game but its still a decent game I had a lot of fun with it back in the day, graphics arent anything special but its a ten year old game made buy a bunch of small time no name companies you dont expect much for what it is the game is great and I loved it as a kid and now, i got it in a bundle but at 99 cents you cant go wrong

Retro PS2 goodness! Back in the day I loved this game. I think I seen Tila Tequila and Francine Dee. Yep pretty sure! Quite honestly I was surprised to see I could get 1280x960 to work, even if a little stretched on my 2560x1440 display, Gamepad works pretty decently too. The graphics arent great, but I am pretty sure they are improved on, the lighting, wet pavement, smoke etc aren't too bad, adds a bit to the game. The game itself runs flawlessly. I would love to try the local co-op someday.

Average racing game.

If you love the average racing game and like Japanese imports, you'll enjoy the game for what it is.
Also, you get to choose a waifu ;D

its kinda like... babys first street racer.

its so incredibly average, nothing is done particularly well, but nothing is really bad either. i'd reccomend for anyone who just likes casual racing every now and then but isnt too serious about it, or just has a lower-end PC that cant handle the more modern racers. if you're not either of those, you probably have a better racing game in your collection already. this one is worth picking up on sale, at the very least.

Great fun racing game. Brings back PS2 memories. Great customization and car selection. But here's a warning, it's kinda cheesy.
