    This is the best kind of game: easy to pick up, hard to put down; simple to learn, difficult to master.
  2. You get the pick of the litter of the best real-life SUVs, 4x4s, and Hummers to take into territory more rugged than Edward James Olmos’ cheek.
  3. You can expect some immense spaces to trek around, just don’t expect too many courses to race on.

    The game's action is unquestionably fun and a pleasure to watch, but a plethora of minor flaws add up to nearly counteract the off-road ecstasy.
  5. Excellent physics and suspension, aggressive opponents, and humongous and well-planned out environments give a bit of shine to a game that is otherwise strictly last generation.

    I found the gameplay became a bit stale after the first few runs. [Nov 2001, p.112]
  7. Slightly above average graphics, bland and repetitive gameplay and little to no innovation combine to make this arcade racer quite forgettable.
