Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions (Double S.T.E.A.L. in Japan) is a video game released on the GameCube, Xbox and PlayStation 2. The game is a driving game set in Hong Kong, in which the player completes missions.

The game's then-groundbreaking graphics for the Xbox made it successful for that platform, as it was specifically developed for that console rather than being a port.[1] However, the GameCube and PlayStation 2 versions suffered from performance issues and did not sell well.

Story[edit]

Set in Hong Kong, the player plays as either part of a corrupt police unit attempting to crack down on rival Yakuza operations, or as a pair of spies hired to take down Tiger Takagi, the head of the Hong Kong Yakuza.[2]

Characters[edit]

Madoka and Mei

One plays as a Japanese female police officer and a Chinese female police officer in the Hong Kong police force paid to hunt selected Yakuza members.

Ho and Chang

One plays as two goofy Chinese spies working for the Hong Kong crime syndicate to uncover the plots of the Yakuza and take over their operations.

Vehicles[edit]

Vehicles in the game range from police cars, to spy vehicles with rockets, and garbage trucks.

Features[edit]
