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. In 2005, a Japanese only sequel was released for the Xbox called "Double S.T.E.A.L. The Second Clash". [2]


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.[3]


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