Gamers can rip up the streets and rub out the mob in Activision, Inc.'s WRECKLESS: The Yakuza Missions, the first high-speed, high-suspense mission-based driving game for the Xbox videogame system from Microsoft. Featuring ultra-realistic, free-roaming interactive environments with unique, pulse-pounding missions and unprecedented instant replays, the game takes the mission-based driving genre to new heights. WRECKLESS: The Yakuza Missions, which has shipped to North American retail stores nationwide, is rated "T'' (``Teen'' - Violence - content suitable for persons ages 13 and older) and carries a $49.99 suggested retail price.

"WRECKLESS: The Yakuza Missions' action-packed and innovative gameplay showcases the power and flexibility of the Xbox,'' said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "You are sure to get the ride of your life with this game's realistic driving physics and jaw-dropping graphics.''

WRECKLESS: The Yakuza Missions immerses players in the unpredictable underworld of Hong Kong by allowing players to choose from two distinct storylines -- either as part of an elite task force assigned to take down the Hong Kong mafia or as a high-level government agent trying to uncover links between the mafia and the police. The game lets players take full control of the action as they pursue Yakuza thugs in 20 hair-raising missions. Gamers choose from 14 different vehicles as they race through an interactive city and maneuver real traffic patterns, tear through parks and drive on sidewalks to complete their mission.
