'Wreckless : The Yakuza Missions' Comes To PS2

Activision, Inc. is bringing the high-speed, high jinx of the best-selling WRECKLESS:The Yakuza Missions video game series to the PS2. The title, which has remained a top-selling game on the Xbox sales charts, takes mission-based driving action to new heights with platform specific features including free-roaming interactive environments, more cars to drive, a variety of sub-mission objectives that unlock game-enhancing cheats and a multiplayer mode for head-to-head action. WRECKLESS:The Yakuza Missions is not yet rated by the ESRB and is expected to ship this fall.
“The insanely reckless, pulse-pounding fun that made WRECKLESS: The Yakuza Missions a success on the Xbox will take mission-based driving to new heights on the PlayStation 2,” said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, worldwide studios for Activision. “The game delivers an over-the-top action experience by allowing players to weave through traffic, bust through barriers, crash into parked cars, break through plate glass windows and even race up an escalator in a local mall.”

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 and 20 sub-missions that unlock game enhancing cheats. Gamers choose from 25 different vehicles as they race through a free-roaming interactive city and maneuver real traffic patterns, tear through parks and drive on sidewalks to complete their mission.
