  1. For some the difficulty may be a little frustrating and later on in the game it seems a little fruitless to fork out on weapons, but it's balanced, clever and exciting, almost forcing you to have one more go.

    In a world where driving titles such as Gran Turismo and Ridge Racer rule, Racing Gears Advance stands out as a breath of fresh air; a driving game that is simply out to entertain the masses with an incredibly developed sense of excitement and panache.

    A fantastic, energetic racer with a ton of strategy in its design.
  4. A reminder that good things are still being done in 2D. [Spring 2005, p.74]
  5. Difficulty aside, I dug this game because a lot of the little touches: the shadows that fall on the track, the shortcuts, the elevation changes, and the way that every race and lap has some surprises in store. [March 2005, p.140]
  6. 80
    This game hit me with the authority of a mack truck. I did not expect it to be this captivating.
  7. Despite these crippling flaws, Racing Gears Advance has that rare quality of being addictive.
