  1. Casual racing gamers might find the controls touchy, but others will appreciate the added challenge. [Nov 2003, p.151]
  2. Unfortunately the handling can leave a lot to be desired and often you can find your self weaving along the straights and spinning out around the sharper bends.
  3. Unless you’re a hardcore racing fan, you’ll want to save this one for a rental on a slow day.
  4. The rest of the game doesn't live up to its interesting visuals.

    With the exclusion of an online mode the game suffers another hit – as the online mode was reportedly and understandably one of Auto Modellista redeeming qualities.
  6. Surprisingly one-dimensional in gameplay. The accelerator is the key to winning. I never caught on to the fun experience of the racing or strategy, if there is any in the game.
  7. 55
    It looks okay, has some nice cars and visual effects, but the most important aspect of this game is missing -- the control mechanics are seriously unrefined.

    It is a good game but the controls could use some work.
