  • Summary: Rampaging rogues roam the highways and byways that surround your village. If your believed the rumors, you would blame your missing father for the surge in vehicular violence. That's why you've decided to lead the life of a car battler, transporting cargo between towns and running down every lethal lead foot foolish enough to cross your path. This gritty work isn't easy. Other car battlers fight for money or fame, but you have a higher calling: You're determined to restore your family's lost honor and bring your father home. Expand

  1. The total package. It's not some pared-down version of game that appeared on a next-generation console... There's tons of content and diversity in the addictive gameplay.
  2. In a market where so many games seem based on the same set of ideas, Gun Battler Joe is a real breath of fresh air. Highly recommended.
  3. Mixing driving challenges with RPG depth, Car Battler Joe is a one-of-a-kind adventure. [Feb 2003, p.158]

    While undeniably odd, there's just something about it that pulls you in and doesn't let go until you've expended hours of your precious time on the thing.
  5. 77
    Give me a better variety of arena maps with danger zones and distinctive features more like Super Mario Kart instead of the basic sprawls we've got here and I'm sold.
  6. 76
    With a lengthier adventure and a deeper combat sequence, Car Battler Joe could've had a shot at the Hall o' Fame.
  7. 27
    It's difficult to find a copy, but just as well. This game was forgotten by many, but it deserves all of it.

    Extremely underrated game. Game looks a little dated, but it's a lot of fun. You can customize your car and you race around looking for parts. Mix RPG elements with Battlebots and you've got Car Battler Joe. Expand
