    It's fast, it's got some neat pileups, but it's shallow, repetitive, skill-less, and has screwy AI. I would not buy this game unless I was desperate for any kind of racing game, and I mean desperate. And I'm a sad online reporter and all, but I'm not desperate for crappy games.
  2. A solid PlayStation 2 cart-racing game. However, its unrealistic artificial intelligence, mismatched music, and lengthy loading times add up to an uninspiring experience that only results in frustration.

    While initially exciting, the thrill of the speed will wear off within the first hour or so, leaving you with a poor arcade racer that's neither exciting enough to last beyond the initial play nor realistic enough to provide the depth of a real racer.

    That immersive, macho feeling makes the otherwise just-okay CART Fury worth at least a rent.

    The quick races, which play a lot like a lamer, more grounded version of Hydro Thunder, only draw attention to the ghastly load times. [Aug 2001, p. 109]
  6. Long on fun and short on replay, Midway's CART Fury is good light hearted racing that brings something new to the world of CART.
  7. This game has more than enough depth with its mini-games and driving modes, but what is most fun is the wanton nature of its car crashes.
  8. If you are looking for all-out arcade excitement that has made Midway notorious, you will definitely find it in CART Fury. Unfortunately, the novelty of this high-octane action burns out rather quickly.
