    Comedy in the way of crazy taxi but without the annoying "dude" (what a stupid 80s word) with the green hair.

    This game is awesome as simple, mindless entertainment!

    A very underappreciated PS2 classic. This is the game that the entire Hot Wheels series is trying (but failing) to be. Tight arcade-style controls + ridiculously fun stunts + an amazing sense of speed = one incredibly fun game.

    It's a cool game, that has good graphics, but it is a little easy after you play it for a while, but i give it an 8.

    An excellent arcade style racer. It's not the ps2's best, but much fun can be had here.

    The elastic band ai here somewhat ruins a decent game. It doesn't seem to matter how fast you move, the ai cars will be right behind you. It leads to a lot of controller throwing if you don't race smooth right before the finish line. I'd probably rate this an 8 if the ai didn't cheat so bad.

  1. A highly enjoyable game. The learning curve is tough without becoming impossible, and races never seem out of reach to win even if you keep coming up just short.
  2. The true star of the game is its speed. Never before in a racing game has the feeling of cruising at over 100 MPH been so perfectly conveyed.

    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.
