  1. If you like racing games but want action, without all those sissy rockets and machine guns, Demolition Racer:No Exit may be what you're jonesin' for.
  2. 90
    While it's not an instant classic, it is a cathartic and chaotic speed-based wreck-em-up, and motor-mayhem fans will love it.
  3. If you can look past the graphics and textures, this game can be fun.
  4. Unlike other racing games that offer the same type of race mode over and over again, Demolition Racer offers a collection of modes that will keep you interested and busy.
  5. If you like sheer pointless destruction and your dad won't give you his car keys, then DR: NE is the next best thing.
  6. With it's great game play, gorgeous graphical engine, and appealing extras, who can resist giving this game a "test drive"?
  7. If racing games aren't your cup of tea, or you have no interest in crashing an automobile into things at full speed (silly you!) you may not get much from the game.
  8. This is a fun little arcade-style racing title designed to give you an outlet for aggression. Go into it with the right expectations, and you'll have a blast.
  9. DR:NE has better visuals, more tracks, improved gameplay, and enough secrets to induce a gaming fugue state in all who dare to play it.
  10. The game starts off with one of the best opening sequences I have seen in a game to date. I laugh my ass off every time I watch it, and it gets my blood pumping before I actually start ramming my car into other vehicles just for the sheer, sick thrill of it.
  11. An adrenaline-packed racing game with positive points that outweigh its obvious flaws, Demolition Racer is a game that most people will enjoy.
  12. It's not the best racer on the system, but it's mix of racing with destruction derby action makes it one of the most unique racers the Dreamcast has to offer.
  13. What Demolition Racer lacks in graphical power, it makes up in raw fun power.
  14. Despite how much fun it is to t-bone another car at top speed, the general hollowness of the game dampens your fun before the weekend's over.
  15. It's two-player mode still impresses, but the trump card of "No Exit" is the reckless abandon with which it embraces total vehicular manslaughter.
  16. Extremely fast paced action and a very addictive style of gameplay will keep you playing for a long time, if the frustration of not coming in first doesn't settle in.
  17. 68
    For what it is, it's fast and brutal, and plenty of fun for a few dents and demolitions.
  18. There are some flaws but the pure speed, control and ability to lay the smack down is rewarding enough to place the joystick up from this reviewer.
  19. 63
    A game's worthiness still ultimately boils down to style, presentation, and creativity -- All of which Pitbull's Demolition Racer lacks.
