  • Summary: Race against the clock as you pick up passengers and white-knuckle it through busy streets and back alleys. And time is money! So get a grip on the wheel and put the pedal to the metal.

  1. Impressively attempts to bring the identical console experience to the Game Boy Advance and, for the most part, does an admirable job. Still, it’s clear by the unsteady framerate and choppy graphics that the GBA does have its limits and this game definitely pushes it to the max.
  2. Handling isn't exceptional, nor is replay value, but it'll pass muster. [Summer 2003, p.39]

    Definitely a fun GBA game, but you have to work through the game's blocky graphics and very inconsistent, chuggy framerate.
  4. Everything else, from collision detection to control to having only three different cars as traffic, adds up to this game biting the big one. [May 2003, p.94]
  5. It's missing the original game's great controls and sense of speed, rendering all that other good stuff a wasted effort. [Sept 2003, p.80]
  6. At the end of the day this isn't a matter of graphics whorishness, it's just that the GBA can't do the game justice. Underneath it all you can feel the spirit of the game struggling to get out.
  7. The whole thing is so choppy, it's almost impossible to play... A total mess. [May 2003, p.41]

    This game is not great, but does not deserve such low scores it got. Its still a faithful port, and one of the most impressive 3D game for the GBA.
