  1. Smash Cars has managed to make an RC racer believer out of me. While I doubt I will be running to my hobby shop to invest in a $200 RC truck or car (one that I would probably break my first time out) I will certainly be spending countless hours driving these miniature racers in one of the best PS2 racing games I have played this year.

    When "Gran Turismo" is too much, and "Mario Kart" just ain't enough, Smash Cars could be just the ticket.
  3. It is fun, plain and simple. Any fan of racing games should give this one a try, at least as a rental. I promise a worthwhile experience.
  4. If games like "R/C Pro Am" or "Re-Volt" sound like your idea of the perfect racing game, however, Metro 3D's little speedster could be made for you. [Aug 2003, p.32]
  5. Despite the lack of smashes, it’s sill a fun game to play thanks to the undemanding and bouncy handling of the R/C cars.
  6. 60
    Offers no meaningful reason why you should pick it up over other four-wheeled fun. $30 price tag or no, with better titles like "Re-Volt" buried in bargain bins across the nation, you're better off making tracks in a different direction.
  7. The game is simply lame and feels like a cheap project that was not thoroughly designed. What could enhance gameplay? Nothing, if you ask me.

    If you loved Re-volt and want an alternative you could do a lot worse than Smash Cars.
