Dear all,

I used to have a Sega dreamcast and used to really enjoy one of the few decent games on it - MSR (Metropolis Street Racer).

Does anybody know if this game is out on PS2 or if there is a game similar to it out?

Cheers

MSR isn't out on the PS2 and there are no plans that I know of to bring the series to Sony's console.

There's not much close to it on the PS2, although Midnight Club 2 is one alternative. MC2's graphics aren't anywhere near as good as those in MSR, plus it's a very twitchy game (one mistake and that's it, might as well reload the race because you'll never catch up).

Gran Turismo 3 is the closest you'll get, Gran Turismo 4 is out in a few months though so maybe hold back and wait for that.

Its a small section but I can appreciate that some won't find it fun. I thought it was a great idea as it took away a 100% focus on racing and made the game more of a challenge.

Nothing wrong with the racing, though.

I liked the way you could do spins in your car which would get you more points.

Thats part of the game and it adds to the fun. Played well over 100 hours on it and for me its the best racing game since Mario Kart on the Snez. Its emphesis is on fun and currently there isn't anything that comes close with this amount of fun and lastability.

PGR is fun for a while. Then you run out of cars to race and have dodge cones. Gimme GT3 any day of any week.
