9/10

As ambitious a video game project as ever undertaken, the fact that this game works as a game and not just as a technical accomplishment is remarkable. This is one of the Dreamcast’s most impressive titles with convincing pinpoint handling, astonishing sound, astounding graphics, jaw-dropping breadth and incredible longevity. The absence of a replay function, racing gaming’s worst ever rear view camera and the legendary super-rock hardness of it all do count against Metropolis Street Racer but only slightly.
