I haven't seen a driving game with visuals this gorgeous since I first laid eyes on a Gran Turismo 3 beta test, and that's really pushing it. Without a doubt, Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions shows off the Xbox's raw, scorching power like no other game around. The reflections are breathtaking, the light manipulation superb -- smashing up hundreds of Dim Sum carts with absolutely zero slowdown simply must be seen to be fathomed. If there's anything to be appreciated within Wreckless, eye-candy unquestionably comes out on top.
Sure, the sound effects and music are better than average as well, but they only serve to complement what's going on in front of your retinas. Engine noises tend to get repetitive every now and then, and chances are you'll get sick of hearing the same phrases from the poor pedestrians in each level. Big deal. Even a somewhat uninspired soundtrack from the mighty BT can't detract from such a beautifully constructed graphical experience.
