5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most addictive games i ever played., 23 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Smugglers Run (Video Game)
I've just finished this game last night, after playing it for about two years now. I've finished it, and i've started to play it once again from the begining because i trully love this game.
I've been playing video-games since the ZX-Spectrum era back in the early eighties, i've played undreds of games and this was the first time i ever bought a game that i REALLY WANTED to keep playing to the end. And more important, the first time a game made me want to play it for two years in a row without quiting on it.
Now i want to buy the sequel wich i haven't bought yet because i wanted to finish this first one first.
To me Smugglers Run has everything a game should have, a MASSIVE gameplay area to explore, with lots and lots of geographical features, total freedom to go wherever we want, extremely simple gameplay and extremely furious gameplay also.
Also it has a great thing, when we loose we can begin from the start right away without having to wait for any loading data once again. This makes for a very compelling and addictive gameplay.
The only thing it lacks is a cinematic replay mode so we could watch our adventure from diferent angles.
The graphics might not be the best for a PS2, but i really couldn't care less about it. The whole visual of the game is trully beautiful, with forests, trees, rivers, waterfalls, and all geographical features you can think of to explore freely.
To me this is the best PS2 game i ever played and i couldn't care less about the marketing campaigns say about more popular titles. Smugglers Run 1 doesn't feel like a game, it feels like we're inside a movie.
Some reviewers complained that the gameplay is repetitive. So what ?! That's what makes this game addictive. Who says that a videogame can't be repetitive ?!! Is that something bad? In this case repetition means addictiviness and the game has tons of it if you get into the spirit.
The last level is absolutely insane !
Buy, buy , buy !
For me now, i'm buying the second one and i only wish someone makes a third because this type of thing is what videogames should all be about. Pure fun, adrenalin and adventure.
Five out of five stars.
A master piece in video-games altough it doesn't look like at first glance.
