    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. Besides the abundance of car wrecking weapons, the most entertaining aspect of Rumble Racing is that the vehicles, including the trucks, can do mid-air tricks. Every time you perform a barrel roll or misty flip its impossible not to raise a cheeky smile.
  4. Rumble Racing really is all about pin-your-noggin-to-the-headrest-and-flatten-your-cheeks speed.
  5. 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.
  6. There aren’t many games more extreme than this crazed, balls-to-the wall stock-car racer.
  7. The car sounds are just a bit bland with hardly any exciting over the top effects. The announcer is quite a smartass but not really in a funny way.

    A very underappreciated PS2 classic. This is the game that the entire Hot Wheels series is trying (but failing) to be. Tight arcade-style 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. Collapse

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

    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.

    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 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. Expand
