  1. If you want a good hour or more racing around real-world tracks with small cars, or even ten minutes, this game is one you should check out. Fast-paced racing action mixed with great graphics and a solid physics engine makes this title an excellent one to have.

    The expensive and all-or-nothing nature of each race forces you to go through the training session motions each and every time, which can drain a lot of the fun from a competitive race.
  3. The environments are big and interactive, adding a lot to the gameplay dynamic, and the pace of the races is challenging and engaging.
  4. For what it is, RC Cars isn't a bad game. However, the distinct lack of features, compared to Creat's previous RC racing title, is a pretty big disappointment. There's just not much here beyond the scant few single- and two-player modes and the currently vacant online mode.
  5. While there's nothing here that hasn't been done in other games like "Re-Volt," the graphics and physics make this game worth a look.
  6. Those who want to break into the genre, and racing addicts, might want to pick it up, but everyone else can easily do without RC Cars.
  7. 40
    There's something inherently insipid about a game that simulates something already simulating something else. You can't help but wonder if fans wouldn't simply rather race RC cars instead of playing this game.

    For an RC Car racing game (meaning quirky controls and no sliding turns), this is very nice. The jump-whenever-you-want button is an For an RC Car racing game (meaning quirky controls and no sliding turns), this is very nice. The jump-whenever-you-want button is an excellent addition that helps to set this game apart. By jumping, you can avoid a lot of the little obstacles that would otherwise make some tracks frustratingly difficult. It's also nice to have turbos at your disposal rather than built onto the track. You will have to practice single races before entering a cup competition because you have to know where the checkpoints are to be able to keep up in the race. If you ever have to "reset" back to a checkpoint, you're pretty much out of the race. Graphics are quite nice. What's there is enough to make it seem real and to keep you entertained for some time. You get a cheap thrill out of ramming people in the feet just to hear their reactions. Expand
