187: Ride or Die

187 Ride Or Die is a racing game for the Xbox and Playstation 2 that was published and developed by Ubisoft. It was released in North America on the 23rd of August 2005. The game was released three days after that in Europe.

187 Ride or Die is undoubtedly a game that was born out of the popularity of Grand Theft Auto, however unlike many games of the ilk, 187 doesn't try to ape the style of Rockstar's opus: rather than a sandbox game it's essentially a racing game where your car has guns. The goal of each event alternates between simply crossing the finish line to defeating rival cars. Upon release, the game was critically panned.
