  1. Although Ducati World does not quite meet the standards set by GT on PlayStation, it's easily the best motorcycle game for years.
  2. Dead-on perfect for enthusiasts. It includes the entire Ducati heritage and is accurately designed with the details in mind.
  3. This career mode-intensive cycle-racer does a great job of taking gamers through a variety of Ducati-brand bikes (new and vintage), along with plenty of impressive challenges and races.
  4. Unfortunately, this writer is unable to provide a worthwhile explanation for such a pitiful display of graphical engineering.
  5. It’s not a completely horrible game, but it’s a pretty niche market one, so I don’t see the majority of the readers out there enjoying it.

    You'll never run out of play options with the unlimited grab bag of pedal to the metal race variants available. Alas, the sometimes tedious gameplay and boring visuals can prompt repeated sabbaticals, but hey, this is a conversion of a slightly above average console game; you get what you pay for.
  7. While the game boasts about 40 different Ducati motorcycles that span the length of the company's storied existence since World War II, Ducati World Racing Challenge is severely hampered by its poor control, obsolete graphics, and bad sound.
  8. There's nothing at all wrong with arcade-style gameplay, but there's something wrong if the action is alternately dull and frustrating, as it is this game. If you're a Ducati devotee or fan of motorcycle racing, prepare for disappointment with this game.
  9. A thoroughly appalling console port that should've never left its PlayStation jewelcase. [May 2001, p.77]
