  1. There is a massive amount of items, music, people, and scooters to unlock, as well as levels and movies. You could play this game for months and still not final all that it has to offer.
  2. It's a little easier to master than most extreme sport games and it dishes out the fun while it lasts. It just doesn't dish out for long.
  3. There's really no shortage of games that pull off the action sports formula with more style and enthusiasm, making Whirl Tour somewhat irrelevant.
  4. 65
    For the hardcore this game won't be much of a "whirl," but younger gamers might find it amusing -- at least for a while.
  5. Lots of the mission goals are lame and after playing the story mode for twenty minutes you’ll want to forget about this game.
  6. 51
    For the most part, the control handles well, and some of the level design is fairly decent, but the goals aren't unique or challenging enough to really bring any excitement into the game.
  7. A cute, but ultimately half-baked idea that neither expands the genre nor nears the quality of other, better extreme games. [Dec 2002, p.60]
  8. 40
    There's almost nothing to recommend here save for the novelty of doing a flipside grind into Frankenstein.
  9. It has a few innovations, but these aren't executed well enough to make the game really stand out. [Dec 2002, p.174]

    Gaming Trend is lying. The games pretty fun and has lots of stuff to do, but if you pull through it is finished in less than 5 hours.
    Pros:
    Coop Story-mode, great music, BUDDHA GRIND
    Cons: No real story, annoying level design/objectives, some pretty stupid moves (LUGE)

    Feels like the original design was good but the final product falls way short of entertaining.
