187: Ride or Die review

A "race game" in more ways than one

Pros

  • Double your fun with co-op gameplay
  • Good voice acting from Dupree and Buck
  • Fine rental for an afternoon

Cons

  • Urban angle is forced and insulting
  • Not a great racing or action game
  • Look out for those nasty bugs

GTA: San Andreas may have led to a lot of moral outrage and criticism of the game industry, but its worst effect might actually be 187: Ride or Die. Apparently, someone thought that the secret to success was to throw young black men into cars, give them guns, and let them run wild. Instant videogame hit, right? No.

You're Buck, an up-and-coming gangsta running for a Southern California OG named Dupree. When Dupree says jump, you jump - and when he says "grab a semi-automatic weapon, jump into a car, and blow my enemies away in a race around town," you do that too.
