    This game is terrible. Incredibly hard to control, and impossible to navigate.

    I picked up this game at a flea market for a dollar. It's terrible compared to the newer 3D games in the series. The game starts you off with an arrow pointing to your objective. I jacked a car, and began driving to... Read Full Review
