  • Summary: Welcome to one of the world's hottest auto trends. Lowrider's club driven car culture jumps from the streets to the PS2. Timing and twitch make Lowrider simple to pick up and downright impossible to put down. For a quick fix, select a ride that fits your mood then choose to hop, dance or street style your way to the next round by winning the love of the fans. Or start with a beater and bring it to glory with upgrades in hydraulics, batteries, suspension and custom paint jobs. [Jaleco] Expand

    Lowrider is sure to hook fans of such games as "PaRappa the Rapper" and k"Um Jammer Lammy" (or anyone with a cursory interest in lowriding for that matter) but—again—this is not a racing game.
  2. Despite its lack of polish or depth in just about every facet of its execution, Lowrider has a lot of heart and is notable for at least trying something new.
  3. The tweaking is fun, and fans of the Lowrider culture and magazine should absolutely love it. But serious players will tire of the game after the novelty of hopping cars wears off. [Feb 2004, p.32]
  4. Best played at an arcade where you probably wouldn't spend more than a dollar on it. I can't recommend this title even at the bargain-bin price you're bound to find it.

    Tacked onto another racing title, it would've made sense, but this is one of the weakest excuses for a game ever. If you can find it for $10 or less, I'd recommend picking it up for a good laugh, but beyond that it's better left forgotten.
  6. As the subject of this review so deftly proves, a whipped-together concept by itself is not enough. I may spend a few minutes flipping through Lowrider magazine the next time I'm at the newsstand, but I'm not going to be spending any more time on the game.
  7. 15
    If "Need for Speed Underground" had an inbred cousin (possibly by "Bust-a-Groove"), and that cousin was mutated by exposure to radiation, I'm forced to conclude that Lowrider would be the result.
