Courier Crisis (Sony PS1 review)

Developer: New Level Software
Publisher: GT Interactive
Released: 1997

Courier Crisis is an action game that was also released on the Sega Saturn in 1997.

+ Heavily inspired by Crazy Taxi (2000, Sega Dreamcast), but focuses on a mission structure for bite-sized gameplay.

+ The traffic light system showing how you performed for each delivery acts as a motive for perfect runs and earning money.

+ Hitting the restart option during an unproductive mission attempt gets you back into the action instantly with no loading.

- The controls are sub-standard and often feel far too heavy for a lightweight bike during cornering / avoiding traffic.

- Frame-rate is extremely low which causes choppy gameplay, and the draw-distance is poor.

- The music is a mixed bag, as while the rock tracks bring energy, the blues songs are dreadfully out-of-place.

- No tutorial on how vital the trick system is for adding extra seconds to the clock, causing a jarring moment in Level 5.
