Driving games are about to get a lot funkier. Based on the 70's television show, Starsky & Hutch will be careening to a home console near you this fall. Race through Bay City in Starsky's bright red Ford Torino, while Hutch takes aim at criminals with his .357 Magnum - but don't go thinking this will be a joy ride! If your driving and shooting skills can't keep the TV audience on the edge of their sofas, your ratings will plummet, the show will be cancelled, and it's game over!

Overall: A highend budget title that is definitely worth it's $20 price tag with one hitch. The hitch is the single player experience is just lame, but you can play through the entire game with a buddy and it turns into a blast. I bought this game so I could have another title to use my light guns with. Bottomline, multiplayer with a light gun is awesome and more than worth the price, but the single player experience isn't even worth a rent. Gameplay: Single player has you driving and the cpu auto locks onto to targets and you choose when to shoot......lame. Two players has one person driving and the other shooting with the controller or a light gun. The game is very simple with the missions usually involving car chases, escort, or timed checkpoint races. The driving controls are responsive, tight, and easy to handle. The light gun is fairly accurate but has a small target area compared to HoTD3 so you actually have to use the sights to aim accurately. The majority of the missions are easy with a few difficult ones thrown into the mix. Most people will probably play through the game once and be done with it, but it does have some replay value if you are into surpassing your high scores. Graphics: Not gonna prove that the Xbox is better with this title. It's not ugly either, it has some lighting, mainly on the vehicles, and even has some decent particle effects from the tires spinning and skidding. The draw distance is good with some
draw-in at certain areas. The framerate is solid with very rare slight drops. An above average looking game with nothing that stands out. Sound: Cheesy music, cheesy voice acting (but it fits the game perfectly), with some good sounding engines and gun fire. Starsky and Hutch get irritating pretty quick with their repititious one liners. Suggestions: Nothing, this game is great value and actually worth its price which can't be said for a lot of full price titles.
The stunning hand-drawn single-player adventure sees players simultaneously take control of Greak, Adara, and Raydel, three tenacious siblings all offering up their unique abilities that will be instrumental in the fight against a deadly invasion.
