  • Summary: Criminal racing gangs, gravity defying stunts, huge loops, insane speeds, spectacular crashes, driving up walls and an arsenal of weapons... Can you handle a typical Hot Wheels day? [THQ]

  1. An unfortunately stuttery frame rate keeps Hot Wheels Velocity X Maximum Justice from reaching its full potential, but the game is still quite enjoyable.
  2. This title is like a burrito stuffed with dirt, topped with soap shavings, and wrapped in a warm leather shell. [Feb 2003, p.98]

    The generic nature of the challenges, graphics and controls forces me to propose that gamers try something else.
  4. Ultra-simple, dash-and-bash gameplay. [Jan 2003, p.128]
  5. 46
    Almost a fun game, except that its controls really hold it back and kill any enjoyment that might have been had with the game.
  6. Even after you've succeeded in mastering the ridiculous controls, the game never really feels like a racing game should.
  7. I like the idea behind this game well enough, but the generic packaging leaves it stalled. [Feb 2003, p.91]

    I don't understand the problem with the controls. Certain cars are tighter than others, but overall...everything is pretty well done.I don't understand the problem with the controls. Certain cars are tighter than others, but overall...everything is pretty well done. The story is ridiculous and shallow. That doesn't matter though when the game is so much fun! It's a rare gem in my book. I'm addicted to it! Expand

    My 6 year old son and I have had a blast playing this game. As a 35 year-old who grew up with Hot Wheels, I cannot get enough of this game.

    I think this game is pretty cool, since we are quite talented with keyboard controls. The only bad thing about it is the story.

    Holy Crap this sucks! I am really angry right now and I usually am pretty calm. The controls make me want to find the developers and hurt Holy Crap this sucks!
