Synopsis and Features
The game follows the footsteps of Jack Rourke. He is the best driver you have ever heard about, but his arrogance leads him to a debt he can’t repay. The mob is angry and now wants it money back. In Sam Harper he finds a woman with ambition, street smarts, and a penchant for fast cars. Jack needs her help and that is when she suggests Jack to look into The Run- a one-time event where the winner gets to take home $25 million.
