"Street Legal gets the adrenaline pumping the minute you put in your CD," stated Danny Hammett, President, Activision Value, Inc. "By combining the latest innovations in gaming technology with a genre that has wide appeal as supported by the sharp increase in street racing movies and television programs, our sights are firmly set on delivering an exhilarating game that will have players coming back for more."
Street Legal gives players the chance to transform a variety of vehicles including everything from lightweight economy cars to high-end sports cars into one-of-a-kind street racing machines with customized decals and paint schemes. You can also join a racing club and progress through a series of high-speed races for money and respect of the fellow racers. Players can find races anywhere from the quiet avenues of suburbia to the chaotic streets of the big city, building on to and customizing their cars as they advance through the ranks of each race club.
Using a combination of skill and wit, players race through a multitude of interactive environments that include pedestrians, traffic jams, road hazards and police officers that enforce the rules of the road. Players who break the law run the risk of exposing the next big race and losing everything. Interconnected roadways allow for unlimited racetracks and dynamic start and finish locations deliver unrivaled variety. Real-time damage modeling impacts the way a vehicle looks and handles. For example, heated brakes are less effective and damaged shocks make the cars less responsive when racing around tight corners.
Once players cross the finish line, they can hit the shop to repair damage and/or upgrade their vehicles. After all the work is completed and the bills are paid, players drive back out to the city and continue in their quest to find bigger and faster competitions.
