    Very cool arcade racing game with a huge game length. However, the number of cars is actually pretty low because most of them are just the same with different team colors. Still, on of the funniest racing games ever with all the drifting mechanics and the cool tracks.

  1. Plenty of cars, silky-smooth graphics, and of all things, a story mode. Best played with the Jogcon controller. [Feb 2003, p.97]

    Extremely tight controls, and the US version enables Dual Shock support! Take that, Japanese version!
  3. The control in R4 is something that you will either be a fan of and realize that it offers almost unprecedented control or feel that it is so arcadish and fake that it's unbearable. I reside on the fan level.
