Originally released on PlayStation 2 as a launch title, Smuggler's Run has been exported onto Game Boy Advance as a mission-based racing game played from behind the main vehicle. As in its console predecessor, the object is clear: find and retrieve contraband and deliver it to its destination or drop-off point within the time limit. Making things difficult is the watchful eye of the United States Border Patrol, CIA, and even fellow smugglers who will all engage players in high-speed pursuits. Players will traverse across wide-open environments set in three distinct regions: forest, desert, and tundra.
Two modes of play include Smuggler's Missions and Turf War. The former involves progressing through a series of jobs for large sums of cash. After completing an objective within the time limit, players will receive a password allowing them to resume progress at a later time. The latter mode focuses on team play with two opposing factions. Players and their computer-controlled teammate attempt to retrieve and deliver as much cargo as possible before their rivals. Since only one vehicle can haul the cargo at any given time, the teammate must fend off the opposing team who will try to steal the contraband by ramming its carrier. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
