    An intensely addictive combo of wild arcade racing and fun platform-style exploration … the joy of exploring all its cool tracks will make you feel like a kid in a candy store.
  2. Even a bicycle would be fun to ride in this game. Why? Because the tracks are spectacular. Ranging from a spoof of Jurassic Park to a complex city with freeways, hairpin turns and even staircases that can be used as ramps, the tracks are complex, beautiful and enjoyable over and over.
  3. The only action racer you'll need for your N64. Put simply, this game is so good that it deserves your money no matter what type of video game you enjoy playing.
  4. This is what we fans have been asking for--so many shortcuts that you can take only a few during each lap or you'll miss seeing the rest! These aren't pointless shortcuts either; they all have a reason for being there and allow you to stray way off the main course, giving the game a great sense of freedom.
  5. If I had to compare, I would say it is Need for Speed with better graphics, faster frame rates, better shortcuts, minus the cop’s pursuit, but equals the same fun.
  6. A great deal of fun. It's an excellent game, whatever genre or sub-genre you try to classify it in, and its flaws don't drag it down nearly as much as they might sound. This game is not to be missed, highly recommended, and so on.
  7. Giant leaps, wild turns, and the mix of realistic settings and fantasy side-shows makes these some of the best courses I've seen in awhile.

    This is just a really fun game, with lots to see and do. Probably the best racing game on the N64, and a unique game in it's own right. It never takes itself too seriously. Expand

    Espectacular juego que me sorprendió en su dia por su frescura, sus gráficos y su tremenda originalidad.
    Largo, rejugable y tremendamente
    divertido. Su diseño de niveles es fantástico y te lo pasarás genial descubriendo nuevos caminos en cada una de sus carreras. Expand
