Meet the New Tokyo, same as the Old Tokyo

Every few wins a mysterious and absurdly named stranger will roll up and challenge you; beat him and you'll unlock a few stickers and an unmodifiable custom car if you're lucky. Pull into parking areas for pointless non-tips and needless back-story on your silhouetted, personality-free competition; take on a few at a time in distance trials or SP runs. After dozens of races that vacillate from ridiculously easy to punishing difficulty, offering nothing in-between, maybe you'll unlock another stretch of Tokyo highway... that's virtually indistinguishable from the asphalt purgatory you've already run to death. The complete lack of any damage modeling doesn't help matters any.

DescriptionTuning cars is only so much fun in and of itself, and Import Tuner Challenge's endless freeway of indistinguishable opponents and frightening lack of personality do little to evoke Tokyo's vibrant street racing culture.
