    It's not worth a 10, if you think it is, then your a stupid fanboy.

    There are good and bad things about it, read the other reviews, but for you guys giving it perfect 10's, your over doing it. Great, fun and stays loyal to it's euro pop music and anime. Loved it. But ...

    Call me a stupid fanboy, but the IDAS series has the best arcade racing since Daytona USA.

    Rated on August 14, 2008 by Nobarai

    To start things off, I love the Initial D series, but generally speaking, this is the most fun I've had in an arcade racer yet. If I had the money to buy the IDAS cabs and put them in my garage, I wou...

    Absolutely Brilliant, one of the greatest racing games ever.

    Delivers what a good racing game should have

    Rated on March 17, 2007 by supergeo_2606

    The first impression of a good racing game is to have the right hype. It needs good graphics (for the occasional graphics whore), good soundtrack, and most importantly, good gameplay. Well, Initial...
