  1. A well-designed, well-executed, graphically superior racing game. The replay value is high, the learning curve is fine, and the overall presentation is first-rate.
  2. It’s new, it’s original, and best of all it’s fun.
  3. Graphically this game looks very good, and it does play reasonably well. But the game has very little in the way of options and even at the beginning stages of racing it is hard to accrue points simply because your machine is not that good.
  4. 50
    A decent buy for those of us who desire a competent, if not great, karting simulator. The fact that there's so little in the way of options and series to run can be forgiven considering the low price tag.
  5. The physics are a joke, even for an arcade racer - driving these machines is about as exciting as pushing heavy wooden blocks around a cement floor. [Feb 2005, p.71]
