    And of course, it looks so prettttty.
  2. A more complete gameplay model with refined controls could have made this racing title of the launch, excluding "SSX" of course.

    Nice graphics and physics and a number of secondary features make for a satisfying ride, but it's ultimately lacking in the innovative thrills we've come to expect from Sony's highly hyped machine.

    Without wishing to come across as overly pedantic, there's little in Wild Wild Racing that could be genuinely be termed wild.
  5. 70
    Does a decent job of giving gamers some off-road action, but the graphics aren't up to PS2 standards, and the racing isn't as deep as it could be.
  6. The gameplay is nothing special, but not terrible either. The graphics and audio however are well below what we should expect on this system.
  7. While the graphics and the sound are on point, the game as a whole is weak.
  8. Lacks any real punch and stands as the quintessential middle-of-the-road off-roading game.
  9. Underneath its dated graphics and insipid BGM/sound effects there is a very fun and challenging racing game in need for something special to justify its existence on PS2.
  10. The main thing holding this title back from greatness, or even mediocrity, is its tasteless gameplay.
  11. There's really nothing 'wild wild' about it. The game starts out bland and moves on to hoist unoriginal game goals that overshadow a clever yet underdeveloped Challenge mode.
  12. With better racing games, like "Ridge Racer V," "Midnight Club," "Smuggler's Run" and "Moto GP," there isn't much need for an average off-road racer.
  13. It's all the worst traits of arcade racers thrown together, exaggerated to the point of grotesqueness, and then slapped into a game that's at best a visual mixed bag.
