    Smash Cars can be pretty fun on a basic level, with good track design, responsive controls, a speedy framerate and lots of air to catch being the highlights. However, there isn't a whole lot of content to be found in the initial release as it's pretty clear that stuff was held back for future DLC.
  2. Racing these speedy little cars can be fun, but Smash Cars is disappointingly light on content.
  3. It's a teeny Burnout! [Nov 2009, p.92]
  4. Smash Cars is ultimately an underwhelming experience. The game looks good and is simple to play but there is nothing exciting or innovative about the title.
  5. A fun and very well-balanced game with great potential but it is let down by a repetitive stunt mechanic and a scarcity of content.
  6. Smash Cars on PSN is a solid and playable game but offers little more than all the other racing games out there. The lack och split screen and the neverending trick frenzy, that can be frustrating at times, make this game a mellow experience that is barely worth its price. Too bad, since it could have been against an adversary in the same couch.

    A game that's best left on the digital shelf. [Issue#184, p.85]

    I really enjoyed this game. I've been playing it since the day it released and I still haven't unlocked all of the tracks. There are lots of extras (like see what happens if you keep hitting the humans with your car!). Anyway, good graphics, fun gameplay, good value for the price. Expand

    This game is just awesome. It's quite challenging and I really love the idea of R/C car games. It is pretty hard to let go of the controller. Also to be able to customize your car in different ways before heading out to the track is also a plus. Expand
