  1. One of the deepest and most addictive racing experiences availalbe for any platform. [May 2003, p.84]
  2. An excellent racing game period. If you happen to be a sprint car fan you would be doing yourself a supreme injustice by not checking this out.
  3. 85
    A very solid representation of the sport, approachable for many different users, but mastering it will only come with a great deal of time and effort, as is the case with many quality sims.
  4. Perhaps the most impressive feature is the remarkably deep Career mode, where careful management of sponsorship deals, vehicle upgrades, and race purses will help you advance from the minor leagues to the pros. [May 2003, p.94]
  5. 84
    Believable physics is where it all starts for a racing title, and Sprint Cars has this area locked in.
  6. A unique little racer that packs quite a visual punch. Its game play is at once rewarding and frustrating.
  7. 80
    The customizable difficulty settings make for an entertaining arcade racer, while the detailed career mode and tuning garage give gearheads plenty to tinker with. Ratbag has produced another outstanding sprint car simulator.
  8. It may not be enough for veteran players looking for an entirely new experience, but World of Outlaws should satisfy anyone else who enjoys career-oriented oval racing.
  9. Fairly fun, but could have been moreso had there been realistic damage modeling and a full set of off-track racing options.
  10. While the Career mode is a little too steep for beginners, it's still a good day at the races. [June 2003, p.91]

    I am a huge sprint car fan and have been fortunate enough to have logged 75 laps in one. This game is as close as it gets without spending the thousands it takes to run the real thing. PLEASE I can't wait for the next upgraded version. I am this games biggest fan. Full Review »

    This game is fun but, it can be really hard to play.
