  1. Manages to blend all the right elements of control, graphics and sound into a package that fits in the palm of your hand while acting like a game fit for a console.

    TGR truly pushes the GBA's limits to offer one of the most amazing handheld racing experiences ever created. It's a rare creation: a game whose sophisticated graphics engine not only enhances its look, but also its gameplay.

    Certainly one of the best racing titles for the system, even if there are no foolish spectators to mow down every time you slide a bit too widely around a curve.

    If handheld racing is your thing, this rally title should be near the top of your list.
  5. The fact that I'm talking about this title almost like it was a real rally game for a big console shows you how serious of a good time Top Gear is. [Jan 2004, p.160]
  6. It's a rally racing game in true 3D, and while most games of this type seem to be slow and sluggish, TGR is quite the opposite, fast and smooth. It has a lot of impressive things going for it, with few shortcomings to speak of.
  7. One of the better looking racing games with a very solid engine developed by Tantalus. It also plays great to boot. Now here's the problem, I'm bored... Now all I have to do is concentrate on the actual gameplay - and I can't help but notice how lackluster it is.

    Very good 3-D racing engine for a GBA game. Nice & smooth, which is an important feature some developers couldn't manage initially with 3-D racers. The Top Gear series has never been known for having any depth to speak of, so no surprises here. This is one of the better racers on this system. Maybe not the best GBA racer, but it's better than most others, particularly any that employ the outdated flat Mode-7 graphics. A worthwhile purchase for certain. Expand
