Perhaps with some additional gameplay modes, or less-archaic graphics and sound, World Race might stand out a bit more, but as it is, the game is only worth playing if you have a specific affinity for the Hot Wheels series.
Features a system that dynamically adjusts the speed of other racers so that youre never more than six seconds behind or so. This, more than anything else, kneecaps this games sense of fun, as it blows competitiveness out of the water.
The racing has some interesting courses and a simplified trick system, but the tricks become old way too quick and the control is too quirky and difficult to be a lot of fun. Courses require memorization and little to no strategy or creativity.
