Car Jack Streets

Car Jack Streets

Think, top-down,  cell-shaded version of the original Grand Theft Auto, similar to Payback. Get missions to rub out competitors, steal cars, and various other shenanigans. It looks great. It’s shot from an overhead perspective city, with lots of details like bushes and crates, kewl cars like taxis an street-cleaners, and tiny little people that run for their lives before being flattened and smeared in bloodstains. Just like GTA, different radio stations even play depending on which cars you steal. The gameplay is good too; weapon upgrades, including rocket launcher and flamethrowers, diverse missions, and a variety of interesting characters. The controls can take a while to get used to, because they are vehicle-relative, meaning if I’m driving down-screen, pressing right turns me left. Get over it, it’s a good game.

Update: This has nearly been made obsolete, now that Gangstar: West Coast Hustle and Grand Theft Auto have been released. Hence, the lowered rating.
