  1. There's a lot of content here, and the game strikes a great balance between cute novelty personality satisfying technical elements.
  2. Gadget Racers makes itself infinitely more accessible than the intimidating Gran Turismo games, and therefore a wonderful racer for the rest of us.
  3. It feels to me like a kind of Pokemon on wheels. [Nov 2001, p.154]

    There are plenty of more exciting racers available on the PlayStation and the game is definitely geared more towards the younger gamer as the difficulty level on the whole doesn't really seem all that high.
  5. As it stands, the racing is boring, and the game really tries too hard to be something it's not. It's fun for a little while working towards that Lancia Stratos body you've had your eye on, but chances are you'll quit before you realize your prize.

    Pretty awesome game I would say. But you can't race the car that you made in multi player modes.

    Good overall game play, and many courses. 120 + gadgets to customizeyour car. There are problems with the muti player. Cause you just cant race that car you made. Expand

    Some races are too damn difficult. How are you supposed to win the non-tune race?
