Curious about those individuals who drive tricked-out Japanese cars? You know, the lowered Hondas with tires so wide they extend beyond the fenders, the souped-up Toyotas with super-sized exhaust pipes, and the custom-painted Nissans with tinted windows and back windshields adorned with a adjectives such as "wicked"?

Wonder no more. Tokyo Xtreme Racer delves into the world of highway racing featuring customized Japanese autos. The basic premise: cruise the Tokyo highway until you find someone who looks a bit too cocky, flash your lights to signal your racing intentions, and commence speeding. The racing physics in the game aren't perfect and the graphics may not bowl you over, but TXR is a lot of fun and it can be a very deep game for dedicated players.

There are hundreds of prospective opponents, and plenty of ways to upgrade your car, but the one element that will no doubt turn off American racing gamers is that there's only one track for the entire game. If you can handle that, and the lack of any apparent damage from collisions, then TXR is good fun. --Jeff Young

Pros:

  • High replayability
  • Impressive replays
  • Unique concept and design
Cons:
  • Only one track
  • Graphics are nice, but don't push the Dreamcast's capabilities

One thing I dislike about most other racing games is the fact that you usually blow your opponents away and you don't actually "race" them. Tokyo Xtreme Racer changes all that, and I love it.
Race on the Tokyo Highway at night, searching for rival car gang members to race. This is the real deal...I'm in love with the adrenaline pumping, neck-to-neck races. No way you're going to lap your opponent here! The "battles" are often truly fights to the finish, with you and your opponent nudging ahead only to be knocked back.
Use the prize money you gain from racing your opponents to upgrade and purchase different import cars and then tune them up to your liking. You can even customize the color, bumpers, headlights, hood, grill, etc. to your liking.
Graphically, TXR is near pefect. Great detail on the cars and the environment, great light sourcing. There's some slowdown once in a while, but it passes. Sound is about what you'd expect from a racing game, and the music ranges from memorable to bland. Unfortunately, control scheme setup is limited, but it's not a big deal.
Some will debate that the game isn't deep, since there is only one track (two if you count driving on the second circuit), but it's not easily mastered. Others might not like the gameplay's basic setup (drive around, find the next car, race).
To sum up, if you want a racing game with hundreds of cars and tracks, there are other games out there. If you want to try a little one-on-one racing, this is the game for you. It's pretty much hit or miss...I love it.

While most racing games seem to try to appeal to racing game fans, Tokyo Xtreme Racer appeals to real *drivers*. I don't think I've ever played a racing game that gave me this realistic a *feeling* of driving - the physics may not be 100% accurate, there is no car damage - but the game just feels like being out at 2 AM on a Saturday night driving around the highway. It's street racing, not rally or league racing, and that's a style of racing not often simulated in video games. Ignore the criticism of there being only one track (there are actually two - the "mirrored" track is really a totally different track, as the highway is not always connected in each direction); it is so large that in my 40+ hours of play I still have not fully memorized both the inner and outer tracks. Opponent AI is tough - you really need to *race* these guys (and girls). These are no Ridge Racer style place-holder opponents. In short, this game feels like real street racing and is a blast to play - anybody who loves real driving and is looking for something different in a racing game should buy this title.

I bought Tokyo Extreme Racer about a week after i bought dreamcast (in october) and have not stoped playing it. I forgot about the other two games i had and just played this. The details of the car and course are great. the cars look as realistic as you can get. This is one of the best racing games yet. Once you get used to the handling the game gets fun. You race around a tokyo highway looking for other souped up cars to race. its not like other racing games were you race to first place. this game its one on one. The only bad thing is it has only one track. The best part is tweaking up your car with realistic upgrades. The game is relitivly easy to beat but once you do you just keep on racing to buy more cars. Right now i have 15 of them and stil going. I you love cars as much as me then you this game is a must to buy!

I know that this game has come out long time ago and there's no real point to write another review. However, I was compelled to write a review for this very particular game since I has enjoyed so much out of this gem though I'm not a racing game fan.
The reason I've bought this game was because of its admission price. I didn't expect much from this game other than just what you would normally expect from a typical driving game. I'm not a big racing game fan, but I just couldn't stop playing this game for hours and hours. I have played up to Gran Turismo 3, Ridge Racer 5, and other than Ridge Racer 4 Type R(with simple storyline with jazzy music), I really couldn't get into it. I mean, of course, they boast top, top notch graphic, realism in physics/control, and awesome intro with intuitive intro music (look at import GT3), but it was all about where to slow down, where to cut on the curve, going same course from starting line to finish line along with not-so-intelligent AI again and again.
However, Tokyo Xtreme Racer just blew my mind away in game play factor. The racing takes only during night time (which is a perfect atmosphere for street racing), and there's no starting/finishing line, but wherever you are challenging a rival or being challenged. You see, the awesome thing about this game is that it's not about where to slow down and where to cut on the curve, but it's about real racing. Seriously, I didn't expect much from this game but had to finish it in couple days. It is not about cutting that finish line first, but rather staying ahead of your rival for a particular time, depleting your rival's meter bar slowly or quickly depends on the distant between two racers.
