  1. Does a tremendous job of reproducing the excitement and wheel-to-wheel action of radio-controlled race-car competition. [Nov 2002, p.126]

    While Big Scale is a fun game for racing enthusiasts, it quickly loses its charm due to its limited scope.

    It's better than expected, but there are a few handling flaws. Also very occasionally the physics model seems to lose track of what you are doing and the handling becomes weird.
  4. It's easy to learn, nonviolent, and focuses on miniature cars--something kids can relate to and car-loving adults can always enjoy, too. Just hope a patch is released in short order.
  5. Too many flaws to make it worth while.
  6. It has entertainingly plausible physics, thoroughly annoying (though realistic) sounds, and solid controls... Enjoyable in short bursts. [May 2003, p.86]
  7. The concept is gimmicky and the gameplay mechanics don't do anything to deliver a satisfying experience.
