  1. With more shortcuts and goodies than you can shake a futuristic stick at, this game's got what it takes to leave the competition in the dust.
  2. Dreamcast HQ
    The new "wing" feature allows you to fly through the streets of San Francisco with added control along with the ability to create new stunts and tricks.
  3. AllDreamcast
    Arcade racing fans will be drooling over this game for a long, long time.
  4. 90
    If anything, the Dreamcast version just looks outstanding.
  5. Its solid visuals, imaginative tracks, tight control, and over-the-top physics model make it a winner in the arcade racing genre.
  6. 90
    Excellent track design, sweet graphics, and big replay value make Rush 2049 the best arcade racer for the Dreamcast.
  7. Daily Radar
    A fast and beautiful arcade racer that's thin on the single-player experience but thick with multiplayer fun.
  8. You're going to have to stick with the game for a while if you hope to unlock everything it has to offer, but I sincerely doubt that, that will be a problem as each mode is as fun and engaging as it is unique.
  9. Da Gameboyz
    Actually outshines its arcade brother in terms of gameplay, graphics and last ability.
  10. Easily the best installment yet with slick and fast visuals, an awsome multiplayer mode and an enormous amount of modes, tracks and secrets to explore.
  11. With a multitude of elements that let it transcend that narrow and often underrated genre, racing fans and those simply seeking a wild, entertaining experience would do well to check it out.
  12. A quirky save system and confusing front end keep it from greatness, but still a fantastic game!
  13. It came as quite a surprise to me when Rush 2049 was not only a blast to play, but offered up an impressive amount of replay value as well.
  14. If you're looking for a simulation, this ain't it. But then, that's hardly the point.
