  • Summary: The follow-up to last year's PlayStation racer "NASCAR Rumble" is an arcade racer featuring 35 cars and 15 tracks, in either Single Race, Stunt, Showdown, or Championship modes. Ready to feel a little speed?

    Excellent A.I, sharp graphics, and addictive gameplay combine for an unabashed good time. Sim freaks need not apply—Rumble Racing is pure, unapologetic arcade goodness.
  2. It's the trick system that makes all the difference. [June 2001, p.98]
  3. Inventive and exciting with its flaws safely buried in the adrenaline rush.
  4. 85
    Indeed, the cheesy southern rock 'n' redneck country tunes can get annoying after a while, and the smart-ass remarks made by the play-by-play commentator tend to repeat more often than not, but it hardly detracts from the overall, seat-of-your-pants racing.
  5. Rumble Racing is one fast game — redrawing the graphics on the screen at roughly 60 frames-per-second (twice that of television) — so those with a need for speed should strap in for a ride.
  6. There aren’t many games more extreme than this crazed, balls-to-the wall stock-car racer.
  7. It’s like playing with Hot Wheels when you’ve grown up with Matchbox racers. Variety aside, there’s not much in the way of style.
