  1. Console racing fans may find this a little lacking, but for those who enjoy doing more than just circling a track, this has just the right flavor.
  2. Generic and by-the-numbers, 007 Racing shoehorns one of the world's best-known licenses into a dated car combat engine that wouldn't be taken seriously without it.
  3. The fact of the matter is that the gameplay in this ramshackle title pales in comparison to these top-selling greats, as does its unpredictable design, boring multiplayer modes (deathmatch, pass the bomb, etc.) and outdated engine.

    007 Racing ain't the Sean Connery of Bond games, it's the Timothy Dalton version.
  5. It's as if every major flaw of the aging PlayStation platform was meant to be exposed with this game -- from the over pixilated textures to the terrible draw-in distance... this game is just plain fugly.

    One wag referred to this game as the Timothy Dalton, rather than the Sean Connery, of Bond games. Balderdash. This is the George Lazenby - no, wait, the Woody Allen, in that crappy Casino Royale 007 spoof, of Bond games. Licensed to kill? On this evidence, James shouldn't even be licensed to drive.
  7. One of the worst driving titles ever to have graced a videogame platform.

    After Nintendo sold off the rights to make games about James Bond, EA sought to capitalize on the success of the fantastic Goldeneye 007, and After Nintendo sold off the rights to make games about James Bond, EA sought to capitalize on the success of the fantastic Goldeneye 007, and made a series of Bond games that weren't so bad, except for this turd of a game. This is my personal choice for worst PSone game. The game is an unbelievably horrible mess. The gameplay is atrocious thanks to the slippery controls and the fact your sports cars are slow. Your car will constantly swerve out of control randomly and you will have extreme difficulty trying to properly use a weapon. The storyline is horrible as well and the dialogue is terrible. This game features some of the most tedious and frustrating missions ever put into a game. Avoid at all costs, because this ride just crashes and burns. Collapse
