For $10, the single player offers enough depth to justify its purchase, though Xbox Live Silver members will miss the fun multi-player. While hardly revolutionary and the above mentioned problems still carry over, its frantic pacing makes for a fun time with a group of friends. The selectable modes also add an additional layer of depth, and increasing the amount of time you’ll spend with this original effort.
Those who explore the surface level of Street Trace will find a mildly fun game at its core. Others who spend the time to master things such as braking and the frustrating intricacies of combat will find a surprisingly deeper experience with a reasonable challenge. This title requires a demo download to toy with before purchasing.
Street Trace: NYC is rated E10+ (Everyone 10 and older) by the ESRB for Fantasy Violence.
