    Code Masters? Hardly. Yet another instance of a game that could have been good let down by some astoundingly dumb ideas. You get dozens of different types of vehicle to race, but only a handful are worth going back to - I mean, who honestly wants to race lawn mowers? Tedium inevitably sets in pretty soon as you have to complete yet another annoyingly repetitive round in order to proceed Code Masters? Hardly.

Tedium inevitably sets in pretty soon as you have to complete yet another annoyingly repetitive round in order to proceed to the next, culminating in World Tour mode with Tier 32, as unpleasant an experience as I have ever had on a games console.

    The last Toca shot itself in the foot instead of putting the pedal to the metal by restricting players with a linear career structure. Luckily for us, Codemasters has rectified the situation in this newest Toca. [Mar 2006, p.100]
