    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.
  2. A fun, engaging little game, and it will have you running quick cash laps for longer than you'd like to admit--for the purpose of netting the next neat little power-up.
  3. 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.
  4. There's a lot of content here, and the game strikes a great balance between cute novelty personality satisfying technical elements.

    It feels to me like a kind of Pokemon on wheels. [Nov 2001, p.154]
  6. Meant more for rental amusement than for full-price consumption.

    With countless upgrading abilities, dead-on control, outstanding graphcis, and cool courses, Gadget Racers is a game no racing fan should be without.
  8. Gadget Racers makes itself infinitely more accessible than the intimidating Gran Turismo games, and therefore a wonderful racer for the rest of us.

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