    It boasts a good sense of speed and decent visuals, while offering an entertaining, although simple and uninspired, number of tracks and stunt challenges. The actual stunts in the game could use work.
  2. When you factor in how little this game really differs from any of the last few games in the line, there's really no good reason to go out and buy it.
  3. It's not unplayable, so I can't go much lower than a 59. This is the most wonderful time of the year, however. Do you really want to be playing a game that's playable but isn't most wonderful?
  4. There's nothing so captivating about this game that a rental can't dispel. It's too bad you can't rent games by the minute.
  5. Good fun - nothing more, nothing less. [Feb 2005, p.113]
  6. It's pretty elementary and it won't take you very long, but at $20 it's a good starter option for the young race fans in your life, who should get quite a few hours of enjoyment from it. [Feb 2005, p.83]
  7. The length may be meager by other raging game standards, but what's here packs enough of a wallop to entertain even adults for a while.

    Slam it in reverse unless you're entertained by rolling quarters across a sunlit floor.

    This game includes many exciting race tracks, a surprising amount of sweet vehicle options, with only one complaint being the tough steering on the hot wheels sometimes, but other than that this game is loads of fast fun. Full Review »
