  1. I didn’t like that the bike could detach. It’s supposed to be used to help you but it always caused me more trouble than it was worth.

    Neither markedly bad nor strikingly good, it remains the fastest damn thing on the planet, worth a look only to those whose computers harbor the technology to power it, or to those who can stomach racing with no variation: racing that's based solely off memorization.
  3. Ballistics is, without a doubt, the fastest racer ever made. The game is all about speed. Make that insane speed. Reaching velocities that pop the sound barrier, this is a racing game for adrenaline freaks.
  4. The sound isn’t much, but the graphics are can be very intense when you are flying past them at more than 260 miles per hour.
  5. PC Gamer
    It’s so damn fast and pretty that it’s more fun watching than actually playing it. [Mar 2002, p.68]
  6. If unadulterated speed and kaleidoscopic imagery sounds like fun, Ballistics is your ticket to paradise. But many racing fans may well find that paradise short-lived.
  7. Computer Gaming World
    It isn't a great game, but it's a decent challenge. [June 2002, p.87]
