  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.

    Despite - or maybe because of - its stripped-down gameplay, RC Cars surges ahead as one of hte better recent miniature-car racing games. [Mar 2004, p.80]
  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. The sense of speed is exhilarating and winning a race is a cause for celebration. If the multiplayer community grows this could be a title RC fans will spend a lot of time with.

    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.

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. Full Review »
