    Maniacs will keep you happy and occupied on the go, even if some of the characters and modes are hokey. [Apr 2002, p.89]
  4. The racing style is fresh for newbies to the series like me, but the experience begins to deteriorate after a while. The learning curve is slow.

    The basics of this game are fun. If you don't take the loops or the jumps higher, you will progress through the level pretty fast but youThe basics of this game are fun. If you don't take the loops or the jumps higher, you will progress through the level pretty fast but you won't gain any gas or nitro. To complete all three laps, you must have balance. Too bad this game's gravity is way overpowered, it takes out the fun and challenge of jumps. Even with nitro, going off a jump drops you to the ground way too fast. And the game against CPUs is just too easy. You don't even need to use the d-pad for the majority of levels, you just end up landing fine most of the time. Hammering nitros is usually enough to win the race.

    It is fun, but short lasted unless you have a friend to link up with. Then the actual route you take through the course will matter much more!
