Import Tuner Challenge (2006, Game) – 7/10

Shutokou Battle (PAL Tokyo Highway Challenge) 4 Import Tuner Challenge (2006)

Three years after street racing master King Speed disappeared, presumed dead, you arrive at Tokyo’s Shuto Expressway determined to make a name for yourself as the best street racer around. As you start defeating team after team, it soon becomes clear that street racing is about more than winning.

7/10

This is an unusual driving game distinguished by positive character types (“Racing you has turned my worldview on its ear. I have a feeling I’d learn a lot more besides, if I had a chance to race you again.”). The accurate handling is the best in the series (reversing and driving the wrong way has been added!) but the game is a bit easy for veterans who remember to keep upgrading their car. Car selection is surprisingly small with, strictly, no import models available to play with (the game is set in Japan and all the cars are Japanese). Mileage of available road is reduced from the previous entry in the series but there’s plenty and is about the same as Tokyo Highway Challenge 2. Car customisation is as good as any other game.

This Shutokou Battle (PAL Tokyo Highway Challenge) game contains mild bad language.

Classified 3+ by PEGI. The game is only suitable for persons who have reached the age of 3 or over.
