  1. 77
    The rally racing itself, which is really what it's all about, is good, deep fun.
  2. The fairly simplistic gameplay mechanics may not appeal to rallying purists, but anyone looking for an accessible, if somewhat unorthodox, racing title will find much to enjoy here.
  3. A solid, yet simple rally game that works for what it tries to do. Its lack of vehicle customization restrict its appeal, and hinders its chance against heavy hitters like Colin Mcrae 3 and even GT3’s rally mode.
  4. Extremely pretty, one of the smoothest engines produced for a PS2 racer, but AI issues and championship design leave something to be desired. [July 2002, p.40]
  5. Poor graphics, limited car selection, and arbitrary track design mar the experience greatly, which is quite frustrating when there are some very nice qualities present in the game as well.
  6. Part of GTC's woes is that the textures smell as bad as hot camel breath - even if the tracks themselves are cool. [Sept 2002, p.81]
  7. Mostly a scenic buzz through Africa and little else. [July 2002, p.120]
  8. 60
    Although each car handles differently, the off-road speedsters are extremely loose, which makes for perfecting turns a frustrating task.
  9. All the basics are in place, competently attended to, and the visual presence is extremely strong – little details, like an amazing waterfall and dense environment effects, continually impress. [June 2002, p.55]
  10. GTC: Africa isn't a bad game, but almost all of its components are average at best, and unlike other games in this genre, it lacks any one outstanding feature or notable aspect.
  11. 55
    If you've already been spoiled by the likes of GT3, you will ultimately be disappointed with the lack of GTC's car selection and customization.
  12. It is without a shadow of a doubt the perfect example of the most mediocre racing game I've ever seen. [July 2002, p.100]
