Overall: Ride or Die is a game that should have focused less on exuding street cred and more on gameplay. Larger, more varied race courses and greater differentiation between the weapons would have gone a long way towards making this game more enjoyable. Midway Arcade Treasures 3 comes out in September and includes a full version of San Francisco Rush 2049. Twenty minutes with that classic game is all it takes to realize that the concept behind 187 has been done better many times over. Don't be blinded by the bling, 187's poor track design and loose controls will at best provide a weekend's worth of entertainment.

Gameplay: Both driving and shooting feel loose and unresponsive, the track design doesn't help. Very boring to play.
Graphics: Everything in 187 is shiny or glowing. The game glistens like a freshly waxed, chromed-out escalade.
Sound: A good soundtrack, a terrible script, decent sound effects, repetitive blurbs of profanity make this both ad passable and an awful game in terms of audio.

Liquid Gears
Date reviewed: September 30, 2005.

Overall: I think the game could have had some potential but it was so overdone in some areas and underdeveloped in the gameplay that it just wasn't a good game to play long term. So I really wouldn't recommend this game other than if you were at a friends and wanted to try it out. That's it though.
Gameplay: The game was fun to play when I first picked it up. It was exciting and fun to shoot, drive, take things from other cars (road rage style). But, it got old after some time and I just didn't have any desire to play the game again. It is simple to play but I would only rent this game and not buy it at all.
Graphics: This was the only thing in the game that was done well I think. It resembled NFSU2 look when driving down the streets but it felt like the same street over and over and over. The cinematics looked nice but nothing really too great. Still, it was nice they had them instead of crappy movies.
Sound: The sounds added to the game with the decent sounding shots and things that went on with driving but the lingo used was so annoying. It was non stop stereotypical gansta slang people would suspect to hear but it was so over done it was rediculous.

Overall: 60 %
Gameplay: 70 %
Graphics: 80 %
Sound: 70 %
