Parents, other then the subjectively seedy and unsavory feel the night-time races take place between what seem like gang members, there aren't any real issues of violence or profanity in Tokyo Xtreme Racer. Though I still wouldn't describe Tokyo Xtreme Racer anywhere near wholesome.
Dreamcast owners who always wanted to feel what it would be like to rip through a highway at the highest top speeds will like Tokyo Xtreme Racer. But don't expect much else out of the game because it is severely lacking in features and options. More hardcore racing fans who like their cars to behave more realistically will be turned-off by Tokyo Xtreme Racer's light physics and lack of real diversity in the unlicensed vehicle selection and handling.
More casual racing fans on the other hand, who like games like Ridge Racer and Need For Speed, are bound to be more impressed with Tokyo Xtreme Racer.
Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.
Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
