    If the gameplay in HSX was even half as good as the track editor is, the folks who make Wipeout would be truly scared. It isn't, though, and the game isn't much fun because of it. So much potential... let's see if there's an HSX2 that fixes the problems. :)

    Good racing game for weekend racers. Won't make the hardcore racers happy but it's learning curve is light enough to allow us other have some fun. The track editor is awesome, Excite Bike anyone?

  1. If this game didn't have such a robust (yes, that's right, robust) track creation engine, then HSX would only be worth a weekend rental.

    Isn't worth the cost of an Extra Value Meal, let alone two.

    Overall, HSX isn't too bad, but it's definitely behind the times in terms of polygon count, special effects, control, and other such things. [Apr 2003, p.42]
