    The two-player mode isn’t all bad, but for such a solid game, it’s a flaw that’s keeping this otherwise plenary racing game below the ranks of "Mario Kart" and "Diddy Kong Racing."
  2. While Freaky Flyers is not going to compete with Mario Kart by any means, it is a fun title with a dash of innuendo, a drop of multiplayer, and about 2 sprinkles too little of speed. All in all, a fun adult title in the land of 'serious sims' and 'shell tossing plumber-racer' games.
  3. While vibrant with colors and sounds, at times plays out in a tired and repetitive fashion, often leaving you with the feeling that you are playing in slow motion.
  4. Together with a narrator that truly enhances the experience (making this the polar opposite of 90 percent of games with narrators), Freaky Fliers is like a comedy album, cartoon and racing-shooter, all wrapped into one tasty toon tortilla. [Aug 2003, p.70]
  5. Graphics are beautiful; however, playing a game solely for its graphics is unheard of in my book. The concept is original, but is really not that intriguing.
  6. The racing is slow as molasses, the weapon selection is pathetic, and it only supports two-player split-screen. [Aug 2003, p.91]
  7. Compounding the problem is the game's low framerate. Freaky Flyers will often drop below 30 frames per second, resulting in a chop-tastic display. [Sept 2003, p.40]
